  • Cologne


    Cologne is one of those little luxuries that men can always use but don't necessarily want to go out and buy on their own. Put in a little olfactory research by sniffing out a different scent for each member of the posse.

    Three go-tos include Ralph Lauren Polo "Red" (with notes of grapefruit and saffron; starting at $49.99), Gucci Guilty Pour Homme (with notes of patchouli and sandalwood; starting at $55.47), and Comme des Garcons Man 2 (with notes of incense and white smoke; starting at $68.33).

  • On the Rocks

    On the Rocks

    Football Sundays will never be the same, thanks to the Whiskey Wedge and Chillsner from Corkcicle, which keep your spirit of choice chilled without watering it down. The Whiskey Wedge's innovative ice glass ($16.95) melts much more slowly than regular ice cubes, and in addition to its namesake, it also works with bourbon, tequila or scotch.

    Prefer beer? Freeze The Chillsner ($19.95 for a pack of two) and insert into your favorite brew. Cheers!

  • Custom Caricature Glasses

    Custom Caricature Glasses

    The only thing better than toasting the most important men in your life at the rehearsal dinner is toasting with glasses in their likeness! Custom caricature glasses by Crystal Peace Studio ($70 per glass) are a clever way to capture the personality of each groomsman. Each art glass is handpainted; choose from beer mugs, beer pints, wine glasses, shot glasses, and coffee mugs.

  • Bow Ties

    Bow Ties

    If the groomsmen's outfits are conservative, neckwear is a great way to inject personality and make a statement. A basic place to start is with some stripes, but try paisley or polka dots if their style is bolder. Beau Ties ($50) has thousands of offerings, and each tie is handmade and stitched in Vermont.

  • Stylish Wallet or Money Clip

    Stylish Wallet or Money Clip

    Although this HALO Men's Wallet from QVC ($24.92) may appear ordinary at first glance, it comes with an all-in-one portable charger, making it a lifesaver for the groomsman who's constantly texting or playing games on his iPhone. Even better, its RFID technology helps guard against identity theft.

    For those who prefer a sleek money clip, you can't go wrong with this copper style from Pink Lion ($28), which is hand-stamped with the gift recipient's initials.

  • Engravable cufflinks

    Engravable cufflinks

    Your groomsmen are already psyched about getting their James Bond on in those dapper tuxes you picked out — complete the look with customizable cufflinks. We love this customizable sterling silver option from Stella and Dot ($98), which is available in four different typefaces. Procrastinators, rejoice: Production time is just four days, ensuring it'll get there in time.

  • A Supply of Their Favorite Candy

    A Supply of Their Favorite Candy

    For just $25, Sugarwish will deliver a box of your gift recipient's favorite candies straight to their door — it doesn't get much sweeter than that. Send them an eCard inviting them to choose from over 80 different goodies.

  • Birchbox Set

    Birchbox Set

    Your groomsmen will look as dapper as ever with Birchbox's "Clean + Classic" Limited-Edition Box ($58). It's packed with best-selling grooming picks (including a razor, soap bar, full-size comb, facial cleanser, and shaving cream), as well as fashion goodies (a chic windowpane tie and sleek leather wallet). They really have thought of everything, and at under $75, you'll want to pick one up for the groom as well.

  • Bottle Opener Coasters

    Bottle Opener Coasters

    We mustache you a question — how awesome are these Bottle Opener Coasters from BOS Drinkware ($23.49)? Each pack includes four stainless steel double-duty coasters that you can engrave with each groomsman's name or even an inside joke. Plus, 15% of all proceeds are donated to the MD Anderson Cancer Center.

  • Custom Baseball Bat

    Custom Baseball Bat

    They've always had your back throughout the years — cheering you on throughout all of life’s victories and lending an ear during the tough times. Ask them to be your groomsmen and stand beside you during the "I dos" with one-of-a-kind, customized Louisville Slugger Bat ($69.95). It's a great keepsake for baseball fanatics, and you can even purchase a miniature version for the ring bearer, too.

  • Gourmet Food Pairing

    Gourmet Food Pairing

    Gourmet Jerky and Craft Beer ($75) are a mouthwatering match made in heaven. IfOnly offers two different beer collections to select from — The Classic, which consists of four small-batch West Coast beers with hints of fruity flavors or citrusy American hops, and The Premium, which includes three bold Belgian beers. (The specific selections may vary due to the artisanal nature of these drafts.) A portion of proceeds is donated to the San Francisco Aid for Animals, dedicated to keeping companion animals and their families together.

  • Socks Subscription

    Socks Subscription

    Foot Cardigan ($9 - $15 per month) is the groomsmen gift that keeps on giving by delivering high-quality socks in funky prints each month to their doorstep. They offer three different subscriptions: the "Tip Tops" (patterned socks for fancy-pants businessmen), the "Houdinis" (no-show socks in crazy-colorful designs), and last but not least, the "Borings" (socks in a neutral color palette with fun illustrations only on the soles). Choose from a three, six, or 12-month package.

  • Personalized Travel Bag

    Personalized Travel Bag

    Two words: Bachelor party! Help your guys stay organized and transport toiletries and clothing in style with the Men's Canvas and Leather Luggage Collection from Personal Creations (starting at $19.99). Choose from a duffle bag with luggage tag, a messenger bag, a tie case, or a toiletry bag, all of which are crafted from genuine leather and durable cotton canvas. Personalize each bag with up to a three-letter monogram.

  • Personalized Gift Box

    Personalized Gift Box

    MBox aims to take the guesswork out of bridal party gifts by offering a well-crafted experience that's geared entirely towards groomsmen. Whether he's the adventurous and outdoorsy type, a fashion-conscious trendsetter, or an avid traveler, there's a curated box to fit each of your guys' personalities — or you can hand-pick items to make it entirely their own. A top seller is The Best of Men Set ($39), which features essential tools in every wedding arsenal: a brushed metal flask, silver plated cufflinks, a shot glass, and collar stays.
