A wedding is a nerve-wracking time for any groom, and there's no doubting that the importance of the best man in keeping everyone on track and providing an unshakable pillar of support for the groom is paramount. So how can you reward all his hard work and unwavering support in the lead-up to and during the wedding? Here are some top choices for you to consider.
How's that for a pun: a grooming kit from the groom as a thank you gift for the groomsman, in this case the best man. But it really is a gift you can class as perfect. Why so? Because nowadays almost everyone is impossible to buy for, because almost everyone has absolutely everything they’ve always wanted and needed. Something like a top-end grooming kit – such as a Piccadilly Shaving Co. Lime Brush and Bowl Gift Set or a Triumph & Disaster Summer Tool Kit – is something a man can actually use. After all, most men, if they care to admit it, need a lot more grooming products.
The same is true for men's accessories – you can never have enough of them. So here again we have an ideal solution to your best man gift dilemma. A classic accessory, and one that goes down well with any man, is cufflinks. A quality pair will hopefully last a lifetime, and each time they're worn will bring back memories of your happy day. Another option is slim leather wallets, which have become increasingly trendy and your best man might be delighted to slim down from his current bulky money and card holder. Or how about an attractive and stylish watch? Your best man will certainly have time for a superior timepiece.
If like most men, your best man starts drooling the second he sees the latest must-have gadget, you'll do well to get him one as thanks for helping you out. Top-of-the-range headphones, retro radios, a just-released tablet computer with a snazzy case – all of these, and much more, will make a worthy gift for your best man. You may have to shell out a bit more than you’d planned, but really, 500 quid instead of just 50 speaks volumes more about how grateful you truly are.
Going that extra mile to ferret out something unusual as a gift for your best man will make it all that more special, as you'll be rewarded with additional thanks for showing how much you care. Something like an antique stuffed chair, for instance, could go down extremely well, as might a beer making kit – and if your best man is a rugger fan, he'll go ape over a hand-painted rugby ball.
Yes, such a thing exists. What's in it? Anything you like – the best of food and drink and perhaps even a small gift or two as well. But if you neither have the time nor a clue, it can all be arranged for you.
No guy is going to say no to an expensive bottle of booze, so it’s always a welcome gift and a great one for your best man. Choose from a wide range of aged whiskeys and scotches – a 50-year-old single malt would go down a treat, even if it costs a packet. But, hey – how many times are you going to get married and have a best man? A whiskey or scotch gift pack is another good idea, as many contain mini bottles so you can sample different products, while others come with a handy hip flask and even tasting glasses.
Buying Christmas beard gifts for the man in your life can be tricky no matter if they are your brother, boyfriend or dad, even the bearded ones.
However, if the guy has a beard, you can be certain that some beard care items and or some form of facial hair item will be loved and cherished way beyond Christmas time.
