A Best Man is an important part of your big day, his duties range from organising a stag do to ensuring everything goes smoothly on the day.
It is traditional a best man, as well as a few others in the wedding party, gets a little thank you gift for his hard work, also as a keep sake to remind him of the big day and the duties he performed.
The gift is traditionally given during the bride and grooms speeches in the ‘thank you’ section at the end.
Traditional gifts are hip flasks or pocket watches, to make the gift extra special you can have it engraved with their name or a special message. Quite a few gifts also have room for the date however does think about if its practical to him a date or message, for example if it’s a watch will he really want a date written on the front?
If your best man likes golf something funky and quite unique would be an engraved golf putter, not only practical but thoughtful. Every time they use it they will remember the special day.
If you have a limited budget and are looking for a cost effective gift something different is best man cufflinks. Unlike other gifts these are best given in the morning as a surprise when he is getting ready, obviously only do this if you know he is wearing a shirt that allows cufflinks.

It doesn’t matter how much you spend it is the thought that counts so spend time looking for something special. After all you hopefully only get married once, so will only ever have one Best Man.
