Getting your groomsmen a gift that they’ll not only appreciate but might actually use can be a massive ball ache, with the traditions of socks and cufflinks not quite making the cut in this day and age. Feel their plight and put a bit of effort it, if only so you don’t end up presented with a personalised flask and a pair of gloves at one of their nuptials. Here are some unusual, bizzare and different groomsmen gifts for every budget…
1. A USB Record Turntable
Everyone who’s anyone has an MP3 player these days – records have unfortunately become a thing of the past (yes- we’re devastated as well). Your groomsmen, therefore, will be delighted when they can dust off their Frankie Goes to Hollywood records and blast them out on this fantastic turntable. Not only that but it also converts records into MP3s to play through your home stereo, computer or MP3 player. Buy it here.
2. Whisky Rocks
A quirky but useful ice breaker, these whisky stones are a great present for all. Made from granite they supposedly harbour less bacteria and fewer impurities than ice, and whisky drinkers will love them as they chill without diluting and keep your drink colder for longer. Made for all seasons you can even heat them up in the oven and use them in mulled wine. You can get them for £8.49 here.
3. A keg grill.
One of the best things in a man’s life, aside from beer, is grilling, and this combines two of our favourite things in a terrific, unusual gift idea. A keg grill has a whole host of valuable benefits too- it’s portability, size and functionality are unmatched by anything else you’ll see on the beach this year. You’ll also save some moollah if you make your own- see instructions here.
4. Star Trek Pizza Cutter
