What to Engrave On Your Groomsmen Gifts

What to Engrave On Your Groomsmen Gifts

If you’re scratching your head over what to engrave on the gifts for your groomsmen, don’t worry. We’ve got your six.

We drew up an easy guide of what to write on your buddies’ mementos before your big day.

Keep It Simple

You don’t have to be a poet. There’s only so much space on a .50 caliber bullet or 30MM A-10 shell anyway, so make the most out of your 25 or 45 characters.

You also want to make it memorable and personal, so that in a couple years he doesn’t have to ask, “Where the hell did I get this from?”

Skip Your Name and Wedding Date

This isn’t a mass-produced party favor for everyone at the wedding reception—it’s a gift.

The general consensus is that it’s tacky to engrave your own name on the groomsman’s gift. It’s far more personal to do one of the below suggestions.

Nicknames Are a Safe Bet

Does your best man or groomsman have a funny nickname? You can leave out the wedding date for this one.

SPARKY THE GROOMSMAN

BEST MAN SPARKY

Just His Name

It’s incredibly simple, but it shows your groomsman that his gift wasn’t purchased en masse. It was personalized just for him.

His initials are another classy option. 

A Quote by Your Buddy

Is there something funny your friend always says? Is there a favorite song lyric or movie quote you guys love to repeat?

GET TO THE CHOPPER

YOU MOTORBOATIN’ S.O.B.

Tell Him He's Badass

Everyone likes a compliment.

BADASS BEST MAN

BEST DAMN GROOMSMAN

The BEST Best Man

A Simple, Heartfelt Thanks

It can go a long way. Throw in your initials at the end so he knows who it’s coming from.

THANKS, BRO. -J.D.
