In this week’s post, Chelsea and I are shaking things up a bit.
- I’m writing the post
- Chelsea is taking the pictures.
With those logistical details out of the way, let’s talk groomsman gifts. I didn’t really know that this was a “thing” that grooms were supposed to do until Chelsea kindly reminded me why I hadn’t yet asked my groomsman to formally be part of the wedding party. I naturally just wanted to take them all out to the bar to ask them, but since Chelsea needed a blog post for this week, I was kindly encouraged to go this route in the interest of all things “cute”. Happy wife, happy life right?
When deciding what to put in my groomsman gift boxes, I took the approach of trying to nail down exactly what kinds of gifts men appreciate. Naturally, these things popped into my mind:
- Alcoholic beverages
- Sports Tickets
- Sexual Favors
Being that the Lakers and Rams both suck, the Dodgers are out of season, and the fact that I’m not about to sex-up my bros, I figured that alcohol was the clear choice.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
A box big enough to fit a beer bottle. We got 12 of these photo boxes at Michaels. You heard that right, I’m going to have 12 groomsmen.
Next, get some of this crinkle-cut-fry-looking stuffing to put in the box.
Next, think extremely hard about what kind of beer each of your groomsmen like. I ended up assembling my selection by making trips to Cost Plus World Market and Total Wine & More. Check ’em out.
At this point, I was tempted to just put the stuffing in the box, throw in the bottle, and then call it a day. The only thing is that a lone bottle sitting in a cardboard box looks pretty janky, so then I sought a way to spruce up my gifts. I decided to switch it up by throwing some hard A in the boxes. I found some mini Moscow Mule mugs at Marshalls, then paired them up with some mini bottles of Tito’s Handmade Vodka since the caps seem to complement the finish of the mugs perfectly. The limes added some needed color contrast to the entire package.
Everything in the box. Chelsea would be proud.
These fine-looking gentlemen to my side.
