Gifts for your bridal party aren't necessary - I'm gonna just say that outright. However - a lot of my clients really want to thank their bridal party with a special something. And finding that special something can be hard - especially for guys.
But I recently learned about an online shop, Groovy Groomsmen Gifts, that has a bunch of great options for couples wanting to thank their groomsmen (or brides men, fyi!), in a personalized fashion. Full disclosure, they sent me a free sample in exchange for a 100% honest review. While they had a ton of fun options to choose from - you have to check out the Your Buddy's Buddies, their Prohibition Classic Flask, and the Cap Catcher - I opted for the hand stamped tie bar because I liked the idea of giving a gift of something the guys could both wear the day-of, as well as use in the future.
I personalized it for my husband (why not?), and since his first name is three letters, I did his full first name rather than his initials. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect. Frankly, from the photos I was concerned the metal would be a bit flimsy. But it arrived and I gotta say, it's really awesome - plus, the hubby really loves it! First of all, I like that it's classy with a bit of a funky touch: the hand-stamped lettering (meaning each piece will be different) funks this classic piece up nicely and makes it really unique and one of a kind. Also the weight of it and durability are way better than what I'd expected. It feels expensive (I know that sounds strange, but think of how it feels to pick up a light piece of silverware... sort of crappy, right? This FEELS good to hold and give someone).
And most importantly, it looks great! Check out www.GroovyGroomsmenGifts.com yourself!
