It’s said that the pen is mightier than the sword. Some might think a pen is a boring gift and that could be true: a regular ol’ ball point pen from your local Staples is not an interesting gift.

If you really want to go the extra mile, most of the items on this list can be custom engraved. You can include the date of the wedding and their name, or keep it simple with monogrammed initials. The best thing about these gifts is their longevity: your buddies will be able to use them long past the wedding date. No matter what you decide to give them, your groomsmen will appreciate the keepsake that commemorates your special day and how much their friendship means to you.
