Your groomsmen play an important role in your big day, so thanking them with a thoughtful groomsmen gift they will actually use is a total must. And we highly recommend tailoring their gift to their interests and style. While it’s totally okay to give all of your groomsmen the same gift, why not mix it up and personalize each and every present? Whether you’re an outdoorsy group and want to give them a useful item for their next camping trip or prefer something more stylish we’ve rounded up the most steal-worthy groomsmen gift ideas.

Here are some of our favorite groomsmen gifts they will actually use.
