Buying groomsmen gifts can be fun if thought and effort are put into the process. The average amount of money spent on groomsmen gifts is $35.83, but the range is anywhere from $34 to $100. A lot of this depends on what the wedding budget is. Some popular gifts are engraved flasks and decanters, whiskey, custom cuff links, shaving kits, and sports equipment.
Groomsmen gifts are different for every type of person and often should be based on the wedding budget. Also, take into account how much the groomsmen are spending on the wedding. One idea is to spend 10-25% of the amount that they are spending. The general price range is from $34 to $45, but can be as expensive as $100. Tradition says that the groom’s parents may pay for the gifts. There aren’t any standard rules, however, since no two groom situations are identical. The statistics that follow were based on over 8,000 customers last year. $209 was the average spent on total groomsmen gifts. An average of $36 was spent on a single groomsman. “The average number of groomsmen was 6.7." The peak wedding months are July and August, and an average of $219 was spent during them. Off months for weddings are December and January. An average of $183 was spent during these months.
Traditionally, men are not the best at gift giving. They lack creativity or procrastinate. Generally, their minds do not empathize. It's critical to understand the groomsmen on a personal level. Ask their mother or girlfriend about hobbies or interests. Researching the best gifts is key. It is a good idea to get different gifts for each groomsman. Do not get something without practical value. Get them something they can use. Makes sure to put effort into the gift giving process. It’s not the price of the present. Instead, it is all about coming up with great ideas and personalizing them. However, don’t skip the presents or get inexpensive, thoughtless gifts.
