You’re getting married. That deserves a big, fat congratulations.
It’s a big day. You have a lot of things to plan. The whole process will keep you busy.
So in the spirit of trying to lend a little help through it all, we’re going to give you some ideas for groomsmen gifts.
First, we need to talk to a few of you directly. It’s okay if you didn’t already know that your groomsmen are supposed to get gifts. Now you know, and we’re trying to make this very clear. You are supposed to get a gift for each guy on your side of the wedding party. And if you have anyone other than guys on your side, they still get a gift.
We might use the traditional term “groomsmen”, but that’s only to emphasize that these gifts are for the people who literally stand up with you during the ceremony. They’re your wedding party and you’re not responsible for gifts for the other half of the party (unless you and your partner are figuring out the gifts together).
Okay. That’s out of the way.
Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s talk about some awesome gift options.
Luxurious groomsmen gifts.
Every wedding is different and, more importantly, every wedding budget is different. Take it from us, there’s no shame in finding areas to cut costs. All of that said, if you’re someone who really wants to dote on your friends, then we have a groomsmen gift that does just that.
In later sections, we’ll talk about smaller gifts that save money, but this gift is lavish. Despite the lavishness, it’s still affordable by many standards. The real point is that this gift is packed to the brim with so many goodies that your guys will feel like they won some kind of prize.
And hey, they get to be in your wedding, so maybe they really did win a prize after all.
Everything you need in the Platinum Package
The Platinum Package is aptly named. This is our extreme suite of goodies. You can’t get a better package from us—at least for now.
Absolutely everything you might need for hair and body care is included in this thing. It comes with multiple trimmers, formulas for every part of your body, and even the most luxurious pair of boxers you’re likely to ever try.
To put it in perspective, here’s a complete list of what’s included in this amazing set:
- The Lawn Mower® 4.0
- Weed Whacker® 2.0
- 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner
- Body Wash
- Crop Preserver® (ball deodorant)
- Crop Reviver® (ball toner)
- Magic Mat®
- The Shed (our travel bag)
- The aforementioned boxers
With this set, you’re basically giving all of your groomsmen the means to be their sexiest and most confident on the big day. After all, what’s the point of even having a wedding if the guys can’t do a little flirting, right?
But seriously, they’ll appreciate every bit of this and it’s a gift that shows you pulled out all the stops.
For the groom on a budget.
If you like the idea of the Platinum Package but you’re looking to save some money on groomsmen gifts, we totally get it. You can actually pick any item in that package and individualize it for your groomsmen. We sell each product separately.
Below, we’re going to get into detail for a few of our favorites — especially because some of them would be a little bit fun for groomsmen gifts. Ultimately, this isn’t an exhaustive list. Think about what they would like and go for it. It doesn’t have to be rocket science.
And, if your budget is a little too tight for the Platinum Package but not on a complete shoestring, you can get the guys a couple of the things listed below. You have a lot of freedom here. We’re mostly just trying to get your creativity flowing.
Ball deodorizing with Crop Preserver®.
Crop Preserver® has long been a favorite in the MANSCAPED® lineup. It’s our special ball deodorant. It’s one of the first items we ever offered. And the first one to get a cult following.
If you’ve never used ball deodorant, then you’re underestimating how nice of a gift this can be. For starters, it does as the name implies and keeps your balls from getting too sweaty and smelly. That’s always nice, but it’s just the beginning.
This effective formula also reduces chafing. That helps you stay cool and comfortable, even on a potentially stressful day. Gift this to your groomsmen and they’ll never think about deodorant or their daily routine the same way again.
Quick cleaning with Crop Mop®.
An even simpler gift is Crop Mop®. This might not sound like enough for a groomsmen gift, but hang in there for a moment.
Crop Mop® is a wet wipe for your balls. That really is the gist of it, but keep in mind that these mops are engineered specifically to make your balls feel and smell fresh without any harshness. After all, the skin can be a little sensitive down there.
Now a single Crop Mop® would make for an underwhelming gift. Thankfully, we sell these bad boys in packs. Depending on your budget and how much fun you want to have with this little idea, you can literally make it rain on your guys with a bunch of Crop Mops®.
Or, if you want to be serious all the time, you can just include a few of them with something else to make the gift a little more robust.
Trim downstairs with The Lawn Mower® 4.0.
The Lawn Mower® is our flagship grooming tool. We designed it from the ground up to simplify and expand on body hair grooming. Then we redesigned it. After that, we made two more versions.
These days, The Lawn Mower® 4.0 is the current version and it represents the pinnacle of body hair grooming. It’s very easy to use, impressively safe, and packed with convenience. It’s completely wireless (including a wireless charger), waterproof, and conveniently sized for travel. We even included a travel lock so that it won’t accidentally turn on in your suitcase when you’re trying to get through airport security after a long night and you’re running late for an important business trip. Or whatever.
The Lawn Mower® 4.0 allows you to trim body hair in even the most sensitive areas and it’s perfect for a little touchup before your wedding night.
Oh wait. This is a gift.
Well hopefully, the boys can put it to good use and have a good night too.
Get your beard on with The Beard Hedger™.
While The Lawn Mower® is designed for total body grooming, The Beard Hedger™ is much more specialized. This is designed to be the last beard trimmer you’ll ever need. It has all of the convenience of The Lawn Mower®, but it’s built specifically for facial grooming and beard management.
Among the amazing features, it has a zoom wheel that allows you to pick how long or short it will cut your beard. There’s no need for extra attachments or anything like that.
While most of your groomsmen will naturally appreciate such a useful gift, this one can also serve a selfish function. If everyone has a great beard trimmer, then they can all do a little touchup work before your wedding photos.
It’s a win-win.
All-in-one groomsmen gift.
So far, we’ve given you a lot of options, but we still have a little more to work with. We’re going to talk about two more gift packages, and they sit somewhere between the previous ideas of complete luxury and tight budget.
Again, no one here is trying to set a budget for you. We’re just trying to help you think about these gifts in different price ranges while still ensuring that your guys know you really care. That’s what the groomsmen gifts are all about.
Groom to impress with the Performance Package.
The Performance Package 4.0 may not have quite as many goodies as the Platinum Package, but it’s still an impressive set. This one includes two separate trimmers and a few specially picked formulas. It also comes with a carrying case and a bonus gift.
In fact, here’s the total list:
- The Lawn Mower® 4.0
- Weed Whacker® 2.0
- Crop Preserver®
- Crop Reviver®
- Magic Mat®
- The Shed
- MANSCAPED® Boxers
You can see that it hits many of the same points as the Platinum Package, but this setup lets you save some crucial money while still giving a great gift to the guys in your wedding. After all, you can put some of that saved cash toward the honeymoon, and since this set is so amazing, you won’t hear any complaints.
At this point, we’ve covered what each of these items does, so you can see how the scope of this kit compares and why it’s a good compromise between a luxury gift and a budget option.
Bonus: Don’t forget The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit to make those wedding photos pop.
The last gift we’re going to include goes back to beard care. We have a special product kit just for beards and we call it The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit. This kit does include The Beard Hedger™ and it has a group of formulas that take beard care to the next level. Here’s the full list of included items:
- The Beard Hedger™
- Beard Shampoo
- Beard Conditioner
- Beard Oil
- Beard Balm
- Travel Bag
- Beard Brush
- Beard Comb
- Beard Scissors
Remember what we said about a beard trimmer being a self-serving gift? Well, if any of your groomsmen keep their face anything other than perfectly smooth, then this is the even more self-serving option. Your best guys can have the most glorious beards of their lives.
First, they can clean up their beards with the trimmer. Then, they can wash and condition it, ensuring good color and shine. Last, they can brush and style it, using the brush, comb, oil, and/or balm as they see fit. Your crew will never look better.
