  • A standard groomsman's gift like sterling silver cufflinks or an iPod shuffle costs $50 to $100.

What should be included:
  • The gifts usually are presented to the groomsmen at the rehearsal dinner or on the morning of the wedding day. It is a good idea to take a few minutes privately with each groomsman to thank him for participating in the wedding. TheKnot.com offers a primer on the basics of groomsmen's gifts.
Additional costs:
  • Having a gift such as a wallet or flask or money clip monogrammed adds a personal touch. Monogramming is sometimes free, but usually does not cost more than $10 extra.
  • Having the gift professionally wrapped, or purchasing gift wrap and ribbons, will cost $3 to $15 extra per gift.
Shopping for a groomsman gift:
  • Tip: Make sure the gift clearly comes from the groom -- not the bride. TheKnot.com[8] has gift ideas.
  • TheKnot.com[9] has a wedding shop that offers groomsmen's gifts.
  • Other popular gift websites include HammacherSchlemmer.com[10] , ShopComposition.com, and SharperImage.com[11] .
  • Surprise.com[12] lets you find a gift based on the recipient's personality.
