Bachelor parties are informal and intimate get-togethers that descend from traditional custom to initiate the groom into marriage and give a toast to a happy couple. Whether it is a simple gathering of soon-to-be-groom and his buddies over beer and barbecue, a night at a restaurant, a day at a beach, on a boat, or on a sports court, the day will create a lifetime of memories.
This is the night when the groom waves goodbye to his single life while having fun with his closest friends, reminiscing about the good and the bad experiences they went through together.
Are you invited to a bachelor party, but you don’t have a clue what present to choose for the groom? We can help you with some inspirational bachelor party gift ideas.
Think about the groom’s personality
Above all, you should be honored to belong to the group of people who mean the most to the groom-to-be and are chosen to send him off on his last night of ‘freedom’.
Would you like to impress the groom with the gift he will remember for the rest of his life? Show him that you know him very well. Bachelor party gifts for the groom come in all shapes – they can be classy, personalized, humorous, or something he could use for his hobby. If you are looking for inspiration, think about the groom’s personality, preferences, and his sense of humor.
Get him a classy gift
If you don’t care about the price, you can consider getting him a wooden watch, a bottle of his favorite whiskey, custom hip flask, leather belt or shaving kit.
Useful gadgets he might appreciate
Handy and classy at the same time, big boys’ toys are welcome to the bachelor party as well. Whether if it is a wine purifier, smoke infuser for meals and drinks with indoor smoke, high-quality speakers, tablet, pizza oven, beer holster, small 3D printer, phone stand or phone sanitizer, the groom will be thankful and would use it gladly and frequently.
A useful device can be a cool gift for the groom if you know that he is obsessed with the latest gadgets. From appliances that can be used in the kitchen to gadgets for gamers, your gift will certainly be in everyday use.
Gag gifts never go out of style
If the groom likes a good joke, parody and unconventional ideas – a funny mugs, T-shirts, hoodies, or bow ties are bound to be a gift that will be met with approval.
There’s already a bunch of ready-to-wear funny T-shirts with a print ‘Under new management’ ‘Game over’ ‘Leveling up to husband’ ‘Trophy husband’ ‘Beer me, I’m getting married’, but if they are too much of a cliche, you can come up with an idea of your own and create an original design.
If the groom is into cooking and he’s always the one who’s in charge of the barbeque, buy him a funny BBQ/chef’s apron. A print on the cooking apron can be something nerdy, a hilarious pop culture reference, a line from his favorite comedy show, etc.
Make it personal
What to bring to a bachelor party if the groom has a really special and unique taste and is not very fond of clichés?
A unique coffee mug or personalized beer stein with an inside joke of yours printed on it is a cool gift that will at the same time be extremely practical. Although only the groom and a small group of friends might understand the joke, it will surely remind him of his single life with his best friends and the good times you had together.
DIY photo collage
What a nice way to capture your memories! A photo collage can come in various forms – it can be a puzzle, come with a frame in the shape of letters of your friends’ names, be made of different materials – get creative! Create a fun and sentimental photo collage of you and your buddies and turn it into art.
Support his hobby
Get a gift that the groom could use for his hobby, be it artistic, athletic or something he could use during one of the various outdoor activities he participates in – it can be a nice sign of affection.
Gifts for sports fans
If he is into football, soccer, golf, basketball, or frisbee, you can get him the accessories for his favorite sport. Sports souvenir, jersey of his favorite team or even sportswear with his last name or his lucky number would be a nice gesture, too.
Gifts for nature enthusiasts
Is the groom a nature-lover? Camping gear, hiking equipment or fishing rod is the right choice if he prefers outdoor activities and spends a lot of time in the woods, in the mountains or on the water.
Gifts for ‘gamblers’
Do you guys often spend your evenings together playing Texas hold ‘em or some other card game? Custom playing cards with a monogram, poker chip set, dice, wooden card box, vintage playing card deck or any other gift for ‘gamblers’ would be an interesting choice.
Does the groom talk about various sorts of craft beer all the time? Does he always brag about knowing everything about the whole beer brewing process, but he hasn’t got his brewing kit yet? Then it’s high time you bought him one so he can start his own microbrewery. It’s a win-win situation!
We hope that our list inspired you and made it easier for you to choose the right bachelor party gift for the groom. Remember: you don’t have to break the bank to buy a great gift. As we already said – show the groom that you know him very well. He will really appreciate that!
