8 Groomsmen Gifts They’ll Actually Use After The Big Day
If finding the perfect gift for a good friend is a challenge, choosing the perfect gift for a group of groomsmen is fine art. Requiring the balancing of different tastes and personalities with just the right level of humour and gravitas, it’s no wonder so many grooms get it wrong. Fortunately, as the go-to source for grooms and groomsmen for more than 65 years, Harry Rosen has everything you need to get it right. Here are eight options to show your guys how much they mean to you.
Educated Beards Peppermint & Cedarwood Book Of Beards
If your groomsmen are bearded, moustachioed or any combination of the two, they’ll surely find good use for this thoughtfully assembled grooming kit, which includes a selection of premium organic beard care products, along with shears, a boar hair brush and a comb.
Montblanc Fine Stationery Line Notebook
The definition of a perfect gift is something they didn’t know they wanted, but will enjoy for a long time to come. This notebook, made in Italy and bound in fine Saffiano leather, is exactly that kind of gift.
