They’ve been with you through the good times and bad. They’ve witnessed you find the love of your life. And chances are, they’ve got a few stories that you’re hoping won’t re-emerge come toast time. But for better or for worse, your people are your people. And when you’re wedding day comes, you’ll have a lot to thank them for. For all the memories and all the effort they put into making your day special, the pressure is on to find the best groomsmen gifts! Of course, that’s where we come in. But before you choose that perfect gift, you might have a few questions.

How much to spend on groomsmen gifts?

You should generally plan on spending somewhere between $30 and $200 on groomsmen’s gifts. We know—it’s a big gap. But that’s because there are a lot of variations that come into play when planning gifts for your wedding party.

First, when you’re choosing your groomsmen, consider that you’ll want to thank each person who stands by your side with a gift. The larger the bridal party, the larger the budget. Next, think about how much you’re asking each person to spend for the big day. This could include everything from travel to party planning to attire. Generally, the more you’re asking them to spend, the more you’d want to spend on a gift. A few more questions to ask yourself might be how much is your partner spending on gifts for their side of the party? And, how involved are you asking your groomsmen to be in the planning?

When to give groomsmen gifts?

This is totally up to you, but gifts are traditionally given at the rehearsal dinner. It’s the perfect time to say thank you and highlight the people who mean the most. Now, let’s have a look at the gifts!
