Top 5 Unusual Groomsmen Gifts
Being a groomsman is a pretty big commitment. It requires a lot of time, effort, and care—let alone the years of friendship that have come before being asked to serve as a groomsman, and the years to come after the big day. It’s a good idea to give your men a solid thank you for all of their effort, and groomsmen’s’ gifts have become pretty standard at weddings. The usual gifts—beer, whiskey, and cufflinks—can get a bit tired.

You can pick out your own favorite movie, or have all of your groomsmen take a poll. Either way, they are sure to hang their poster on the wall and brag about the wedding and your friendship to everyone who comes over.
