Do you bring a gift for the groom when you attend a bachelor party? Maybe, but it isn’t necessarily required. That said, engagement party and wedding gifts are for the couple, so it’s natural to also want to buy something specific for the groom. A bachelor party gift can show your appreciation for the groom and for being invited to the bachelor party. 

However, not just the groom gets presents at the bachelor party. If you’re planning the bachelor shindig, you’ll also need to plan bachelor party favors. 

Keep reading for some of our favorite bachelor party gift ideas, and ideas for planning party favors for bachelor party attendees. 

Ideas for Bachelor Party Gifts for the Groom

Searching for the best bachelor party gifts can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Consider the groom’s interests, but feel free to also consider a gift that can be used during the bachelor party, such as a gag gift or something consumable. 

Funny Bachelor Party Gift Ideas

Bachelor party funny gift ideas
When thinking about funny bachelor party gift ideas, the first thing that comes to mind is a gift that pokes fun at the impending wedding, such as a gift that symbolizes the ending of the groom’s freedom or “helps” him prepare for marriage. A personalized marriage survival kit could be a funny gift. You could consider a pair of boxers that say something like “Property of [partner’s name].” Another idea is a hangover cure kit — funny yet practical, depending on the activities of the bachelor party.

Another great, funny gift idea is something the groom can wear at the bachelor party, like a shirt or hat with a funny slogan like, “If you see this groom, buy him a beer.” Or, you could go all out, and the wedding party could decide to get everyone something matching to wear for the bachelor party. (Who doesn’t love matching Hawaiian shirts?) Another gift that could amp up the fun at a bachelor party? Party games.

However, ensure you know the groom’s sense of humor before going all-in with a gag gift, as it should be light-hearted and fun. 

Consumable Bachelor Party Gift Ideas

Depending on the location of the bachelor party, you could bring something consumable, like a bottle of liquor or snacks. For example, bring a bottle of the groom’s favorite liquor and some engraved shot glasses or a bottle opener.

Experiences can also make the perfect gift. Consider giving the groom an experience he can enjoy with his new partner or something he can do with his pals before the wedding. Think bungee jumping, a helicopter ride, or tickets to a sports game. It doesn’t necessarily have to be that big, either; you could simply opt for a gift card to the groom’s favorite restaurant. You could also get him a gift card for a barber shop and go with him to get his hair styled before the wedding day.

Quick tip - for lower cost diamond rings, consider lab grown. More diamond for less money.

Bachelor Party Favors Ideas

Bachelor Party Favors Ideas
Bachelor party favors are small gifts or souvenirs that the groom and his friends can keep as a reminder of the bachelor party. These favors are typically given out to each guest at the end of the party or as a parting gift. 

These party favors can be similar to some of the ideas above, such as personalized flasks or shot glasses with the attendees’ names and the party’s date. It could be a small gift basket, with items like a cigar and whiskey, or a hangover cure kit.

Along these lines, getting matching t-shirts is a fun way to experience a bachelor party and something the attendees can take home as a favor, to remember the bachelor party. (No, it’s not just a bachelorette party thing. It can be done for a bachelor party, too). Beyond t-shirts, other bachelor party matching favors could include:

  • Hats
  • Sunglasses
  • Socks 
  • Flasks 

A Note on Groomsmen Gifts

Beyond party favors, there are also groom crew gifts, which are separate tokens of appreciation. Whereas everyone who attends the bachelor party receives the party favors, groom crew gifts are only for the groom crew. 

The groom gives these gifts to his crew as a thank-you for their support and participation in the wedding. These gifts are usually more personalized and thoughtful, as they are meant to show appreciation for their specific role and relationship. Groom crew gifts can be given at any point leading up to the wedding, including at the bachelor party.
