Gifts at weddings are customary—and not just for the bride and groom. The bridesmaids, maid of honor, groomsmen, and best man all get trinkets, too. Today, we're here to talk about the latter. Shopping for your best man isn't an easy task though—you might not know where to start. No need to stress, we’re here to help walk you through the process.
Your best man should get the best gift of all your groomsmen. After all, he’s the one putting in the most effort of the group, given, traditionally, it’s the best man who plans the bachelor party and helps most with the prep leading up to the big day. To honor his efforts, you should look for items that he’ll actually use (because nobody wants random party favors that just take up space) or can be customized to show that you’re willing to put the extra effort into thanking him for his friendship.
To help you get the ball rolling, we’ve rounded up more than two dozen gifts perfect for your best man (which, BTW, you’ll give them at the rehearsal dinner or as you’re getting ready on the day of your wedding). There are options for every budget including a Parachute bathrobe, AirPods Pro, a Coach brief, and more, so all you have to do is pick the gift he'll love the most.
1. For the one who loves his accessories: Michael Kors reversible belt
Whether your best man has a big meeting coming up or a fun date on the horizon, he'll love this reversible belt. This wardrobe essential has a 4.6-star rating from Michael Kors customers, with many complimenting its versatility (it's got the MK logo print on one side and smooth leather on the other), so he can wear it with some casual jeans or with his three-piece suit.
2. For the one who loves to celebrate: Personalized Groomsmen Flasks
Weddings and great friendships are a cause for celebration. With that in mind, giving your best man a personalized flask is always a good idea, especially if they can't resist a top-notch cocktail. This stainless one can be bought individually or in a set of three or six to accommodate groomsmen, too. Best of all, despite their personalized nature, they ship in two days flat.
3. For the one who needs a self-care day: Parachute bathrobe
Your best man deserves some relaxation after working hard at your wedding. Treat him with this cult-favorite Parachute bathrobe that has nearly 2,250 customer reviews. We praised how soft, thick, plush and extremely absorbent this robe was, comparing it to being wrapped in a "big hug." It's also available in multiple colors so you can pick one that best matches his style.
4. For the meat-lover: Crowd Cow
If your best man spends his days grilling away, he'll love our favorite meat delivery service, Crowd Cow. We loved this option for its high-quality meat and seafood options, and available customizations. Your best man will even gain access to how-to videos so he can learn to sear the perfect steak. Build your own box with his favorites or pick the Japanese Wagyu box for something more drool-worthy. Trust us, he won't be disappointed.
5. For the one who constantly drops his phone: Castetify custom phone case
Whether your best man constantly drops his phone or you simply think he could use a higher-quality phone case, getting him a custom case from Casetify is a great idea. At Casetify, you can choose between Apple and Samsung phones, as well as nine different phone case types. Once you make those choices, you can then personalize it with your best man’s name, initials, or whatever you see fit. (As someone who's always used Casetify phone cases, I can attest to what a fantastic, long-lasting gift this is.)
6. For the one always looking for clean socks: Uncommon Goods personalized socks
Your best man is going to need a clean pair of dress socks for your big day. You might as well use this gift as an opportunity to keep him well-dressed while adding a personal note. This set of five pairs of socks, which are sold in black and gray, can be customized on the ankle and toe, however you please. It's also got a 4.9-star rating from Uncommon Goods shoppers who loved how functional yet personal this gift was.
7. For the music-lover: AirPods Pro
With more than 206,000 Amazon shopper ratings, the AirPods Pro are among the most beloved earbuds on the market and they're one of our favorite pairs of wireless earbuds, too. We especially liked their active noise cancelation and their soft silicone ear tips which come in multiple sizes so your nest man can find his best fit. They also hold a decent 5 hours of listening time per charge, enough for him to get through his grueling workout or more than half his workday.
