The bond between the groom and his groomsmen is a strong one.

It’s not unusual for these guys to have grown up together, seen other girlfriends come and go, and supported each other through tough times.

That’s why when it comes to your special day, a special gift is in order to say thanks.

We’ve made a list of the top 10 of the best wedding favours ideas for your wolf-pack.

Personalised hipflask

You can’t go wrong with a personalised hipflask. Every guy secretly wants one, even if they don’t drink whiskey. Having them customised with that personal touch – their name and date of the wedding for example – and it’s an affordable and stylish gift.

Engraved pocket watch

Not as expensive as it sounds, an engraved pocket watch is a classy way to say thanks to your groomsmen. Watches have gone out of style these days with the emergence of mobile phones, which makes a pocket watch all the more special. They are the ultimate addition to a formal occasion, and what’s cooler than pulling one out of your suit, checking the time, and snapping it shut again like a character from a Charles dickens novel.

A leather wallet

A beautiful leather wallet is always appreciated. Again, having initials or the wedding date inscribed on it adds a great personal touch.


Every special day needs cufflinks, and a personalised set for the groomsmen can be a small, yet bonding, gift.

Shaving kits

What man doesn’t want a cut-throat razor? A beautiful shaving kit is a great gift for any man. Even those with a beard need to keep it trim!

Custom beer bottle

New Zealand has its fair share of craft breweries, and it’s simple to arrange a crate with your own personalised labels! They can celebrate your special day or be tailored to each of your groomsmen. Either way, it’s something that won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

BBQ set

What man doesn’t like to think he’s the king of the grill, and a personalised BBQ set won’t do anything to allay those beliefs.

Personalised socks/t-shirt

Something that connects you all on your special day – personalised socks. Whether it’s each person’s name or nickname, or maybe a superhero motif, everyone will feel part of a team by wearing the same clothes.

Engraved Swiss Army Knife

You don’t have to be an outdoorsman to appreciate the quality and history of the infamous Swiss Army Knife. Having your very own engraved Swiss army knife is something every groomsman can use.

A wedding isn’t a wedding without a bunch of guys standing outside at the end of the night smoking cigars. Show your groomsmen some love with a laser-engraved, personalised cigar box, made from stunning cherry wood.

Traditionally, the wedding day tends to be focused on the bride, but it’s the groom’s special day too! He’s going to want to give something memorable to his best friends,for what will surely be one of the greatest days of his life.
