Traditionally the best man has a great deal of responsibility before and during the wedding. He’s usually the man who organises the bachelor party and it’s his job to get the groom to the wedding on time. There’s also a great deal of expectation on the best man’s speech, which can make (or break) a wedding – think Four Weddings and A Funeral!
With all that pressure on your best man, it’s only fair that you say thank you and present them with a small gift to express your gratitude. But men are notoriously difficult to buy for so, we’ve put a few suggestions together to help you.
Traditional best man gifts
Traditional thank you gifts for the best man include cuff-links, hip-flasks and tie pins, all of which can be personalised to make them even more special. Pint glasses, whisky tumblers and shot glasses can also be personalised to make interesting best man thank you gifts.
Treat them to a memorable experience
If you’d prefer to make a more original thank you gesture, then experience gifts are great for best man thank you gifts. From power boat driving gifts, theme park tickets and skydiving to paint balling, sporting event tickets and flying lessons, you can give them a thank you gift they’ll never forget.
Thank you gifts for ushers
If you’re having a church wedding or a larger civil ceremony, then you might also have ushers to thank too. While the best man thank you gifts we’ve mentioned are also suitable for ushers, you might want to go for something a little bit more quirky. How about wedding party socks, or cuff-links that state their role in the wedding or even personalised chocolate bars?
Both ushers and best man would also appreciate bottles of their favourite tipple. However, if you’re really stuck, we’ve a great range of chocolates and thank you balloons that are sure to make them smile when they receive them after the wedding. Our chocolate pizzas will make a quirky and affordable gift they’re bound to remember.
