How Much Should I Spend on a Best Man Gift?
The answer depends entirely on how much you have to spend – no one wants to receive a gift that you can’t really afford. With that said, we do think that your best man deserves a token to thank him for being such a big part of your day and you don’t need to spend a lot to show your appreciation.
To help track down a gift he’ll love that’s within budget, we’ve created a round-up of groomsmen and best man gifts organised by price. With gifts for as little as £10, there’s something for everyone here.
Should the Best Man Buy a Wedding Gift?
It’s not essential for the best man to buy the couple a wedding gift but if you’re a best man reading this and would like to give a gift to either the groom or the happy couple jointly, then you certainly can! A nice – and budget-friendly – way to give something to the groom is by clubbing together with the other groomsmen and presenting the groom with something from you all on his wedding morning. From an engraved whiskey glass to something more extravagant such as a watch, we’re sure he’ll be touched.
