Wedding Wednesday Guest Post: Groomsmen Gift Guide!

I’m thrilled to have Tobe from Because It’s Awesome taking over Wedding Wednesday this week!  She is so fabulous, it hurts… and her blog is super fun!  (I’m especially in love with her Type Tuesday posts…)


Hello, Blending beauties! Tobe here from Because It’s Awesome.  While our sweet Kim is off getting hitched and honeymooning, I am happy to fill in for her with a few wedding memories of my own. Almost exactly two years ago, I married the most wonderful man I’ve ever met. We opted to keep things super simple with an unusually small wedding party. I was blessed to have my younger brother stand up with me as my Man of Honor (and my entire bridal party), and my husband’s best friend stood up with him. Because we weren’t putting the guys out at all by renting tuxes or the like (we went with black suits because everyone already had one, white button downs, and solid ties) we didn’t feel like the traditional elaborate gifts were necessary. BUT since these were two of our favorite men in this world, we wanted to get them something. I think most of us would agree that shopping for the menfolk can be difficult sometimes…..so I pulled together a few gift options that any guy is sure to love.

brass lighter ring ||  aviator sunglasses ||  jack spade travel bag ||  crystal skull vodka/decanter
watch ||  trigger mug ||  striped tie ||  anchor knife ||  bomba alarm clock

Thanks so much, Tobe!

    Tobe, you hit the nail on the head with this one!

    Not only does my man own a variation of most of these items, EVERY single gift he has ever asked for EVER is in this list! The decanter and the french Laguiole pocket knife and corkscrew was especially popular :)
