Groomsmen Gifts: Monogrammed and Personalized Items

You and your groomsmen survived the bachelor party, and now you’re tasked with classing the guys up for your wedding. You can provide the accessories they’ll need to spruce up their suits, but the fun part is getting them a gift to stand the test of time.

What happens when your friend group is diverse and everyone has a different personality? You want to get your groomsmen a gift they’ll actually like, not something that will end up at the back of the closet. Getting your friends something they can use every day is a great start. But a customizable item? Now that’s special.

Sticking your name on things used to be what Mom did to all of your clothes. Now it’s trendy. And honestly, you can pretty much customize anything these days. Whether you get your groomsmen monogrammed towels, bags, or even a pair of headphones, your gift is sure to make a great impression.

Engravable Cufflinks

A super classy detail that will set your friends apart on the dance floor. We’ve gone long on cufflinks if you’re interested in a deep dive, but suffice to say, these are our favorite monogrammed pieces.

$195 at Brooks Brothers

Metal Remix Glasses With Custom Engraving

People will want to cop these, but now you’ll be able to prove they’re yours. After all, you don’t have Ray Bans until you’ve got monogrammed Ray Bans.

$163 at Ray-Ban

Monogrammed Boxer Brief

If you can get over the slight weirdness of buying your friend underwear, the truth is that every guy could use a really nice new pair. Nice Laundry is already known for their quality undergarments, but you can add a quirky emblem to the waistband to make them even more special. 

$29 at Nice Laundry

Monogram Tech Folio

A totally elegant, but admittedly Old World way to carry your favorite devices. If your friends need something to slide into their briefcases, this is the best option.

$89-$99 at Mark & Graham

Engravable Signet Ring

You like hanging out with ’em, so why not put a ring on them too? For stylish guys who like to accessorize, this is the perfect custom-made way to finish off an outfit.

$379 at Zales

QuietComfort Wireless Headphones

No better way to tune out the world than with a pair of headphones that show everyone around who’s boss. Give your friends the gift of silence as they try to ignore the screaming baby on their next flight.

Prices vary at Bose

Monogram Towels

Your mother always told you that you needed a fresh set of towels for company, right? Well, take the groomsmen gift occasion as permission to pass that wisdom along. Plush, absorbent, and useful as hell, a monogrammed towel set is the sort of present people will remember for years to come. 

Prices vary at Land's End

Monogram Waxed Canvas Tote

The perfect throw-it-in-and-head-out-the-door bag for a weekend away. It’s more adult than a backpack, and less ridiculous than one of those leather bags people call a “man purse,” or worse, a “murse.” We need a stiff drink after typing up that cursed term.

$57.50 at Cathy’s Concepts

Customized Luggage Tag

For your friend who’s always traveling for work — or play! — this is a great way to make his trip that much stylish and manageable. Just think: if you nail this gift, your friend will never have to stand miserably at the luggage carousel looking through identical black suitcases ever again.

$35 at Leatherology

Monogram Pillow

Does anyone need a monogrammed pillow? No. But does it look high class as hell? Yes, yes it does.
