Groomsmen Gifts for the Conservative Guy in Your Wedding Party

Groomsman Cocktail Bar Glass, BarwareThroughout your life, you’ve probably had a friend who wasn’t quite as outgoing as your other buddies but was still a lot of fun and extremely dependable. He’s the guy you look up to when it comes to professional aspirations, and you’ve probably taken a few life lessons from him when it comes to family and friendships. If you have a conservative guy in your wedding party, the wedding party gift you give him should fit his personality. Here are a few great choices that will let your straight-laced friend know just how much you appreciate him.

Whiskey Label Personalized Flask

Maybe the conservative friend in your life has introduced you to quality spirits since he’s likely the one to convince the group to try something other than beer during a guys’ night out. A personalized whiskey label flask that looks like a vintage whiskey label would make the perfect gift since it likely looks like his favorite spirit, but the label will be customized to feature his name and the city or state where the two of you met. The etching on the glass has a 3D effect, and the flask holds up to 8.5 ounces of whiskey, so you and your groomsmen can celebrate your special day together.

Groomsmen Tuxedo Top Hat Flask

This flask is the perfect gift for the guy in your wedding party who never passes up the chance to get dressed up. You can always count on him to show you how to tie a vintage bow tie or pick the perfect pair of shoes for a corporate gala. The Groomsmen Tuxedo Top Hat Flask features a picture of a tuxedo front and top hat, and you can have your friend’s name engraved in the center of the flask. You can present these gifts at the beginning or your reception so your groomsmen can use them to celebrate during the night, and of course the gift makes a great keepsake after the wedding is over.

Groomsmen Bowtie Whiskey Glasses

These whiskey glasses are great for proposing a toast to the men who have been supportive and encouraging throughout your life. These make classy gifts since they are engraved with a bowtie design on the front, which makes them ideal for members of your wedding party who are known for being men of style. There’s also room on the glasses for you to have each wedding party member’s name engraved along with the date of your wedding. The Groomsmen Bowtie Whiskey Glasses also pair well with the tuxedo flask, so you can present both of the items as a set to the groomsmen in your life who have had a hand in making your wedding one to remember.

Groomsmen Beer Mugs

Even if your friend is the more conservative one in the group, he probably won’t pass up the opportunity to enjoy a glass of quality beer with his best friends. The Groomsmen Beer Mugs include a banner for engraving the name of your groomsman and his role in the wedding. The mugs also feature an attractive banner, are made from strong glass and are dishwasher safe.

We offer a variety of beautiful crystal wedding gifts that are sure to spark fond memories each time the recipient uses their incredible gift.


Waterford Crystal Glasses

Items like the Waterford Crystal Engraved Glass are sure to impress your family member or friend. These glasses are made of European crystal, and our signature deep-carved engraving technique is used to make the monogram on the glass stand out. The Waterford Crystal Lismore pattern has been the foremost design for Waterford for over six decades. Our engraving style has an 18th-century influence and is a nod to George and William Penrose, the founders of Waterford Crystal. You can customize this glass to feature the names of the bride and groom, the monogram of the couple’s new family name, and/or the date of the wedding. There are a number of designs to choose from, and the etched design at the base of the glass (depending on the gift you choose) makes this crystal gift one that will be cherished for many years to come.


Bar Glasses

For something more casual but still classy and unforgettable, a bar glass may be the answer. We offer personalized whiskey scotch bar glasses, which can feature the initial of your loved one or the monogram of the couple’s new family name. These glasses are ideal for a celebratory glass of scotch or whiskey, and they are available in Waterford Lismore or standard glass.

To present your family member with a wedding gift that signifies pride in their native hometown, you can choose the Hometown City Rocks Glass. The glass features a map and embossed name of the city in the center. This gift can serve as a way to honor the recipient’s childhood and formative years while reminding them of great times ahead.


Engraved Wine Bottles

An engraved wine bottle is a wonderful gift because it offers a personalized message that the bride and groom will cherish. You can feature the date of the wedding, the names of the bride and groom, and a short quote or phrase about love to make the gift unique. The message is sand-carved into the glass, and since the bottle is empty, you can further customize the gift by filling it with flowers or small candies. These bottles are available in both green and blue glass, so you can choose a gift that will best match the wedding color scheme.


Ice Buckets

A Waterford crystal ice bucket is a perfect gift for a couple that entertains often. This item has enough room for the engraved monogram and the full spelling of the couple’s last name. The shield design is rather eye-catching, and the etched accents at the bottom of the item make it even more appealing.

These are just some of the stylish and sophisticated glass gifts you can give to a newly married couple to show how much you care. Be sure to browse through our site for more beautiful customized gifts you can choose from.

Happy Customer Review – Wedding Toasting Glasses

Wedding Day Bridal Party GlassesWe love being a part of your special day and a large portion of our summer business is creating special wedding toasting glasses and groomsmen gifts as well as special bridesmaids gifts. Today we received this special note from a last minute bride and groom who turned to Crystal Imagery to “save the day” with special custom glasses for their wedding reception and bridal party. Did I say how much we love our jobs and our customers? – Cheers!

“Just wanted to say thank you. We were late getting all the details ready for our wedding, so it didn’t give much time for us to find some custom glassware made. I was so worried with how long other companies were saying it was going to take. I called Crystal Imagery and they said they could get them done and mailed out same day. Well I didn’t believe it, but sure enough, I got an email saying my package had shipped. When they arrived they were such great quality! But one was broken…. I called to reorder it and they told me to just send a picture and boom, they had another one mailed out. Great product! Great customer service! Amazing price! Sorry about the picture not being that great but I had to show them off. The wedding party loved them. I will be ordering again to get some for the house.” – Stephen H.

Creative Ways to Display Your Engraved Logo

company logo barware and glassware promotional giftsIf you are having engraved gifts created for marketing purposes, you’ll want them to grab the attention of established and prospective customers in a way that makes your company memorable. Engraved glass gifts will make a great impression on clients, and the following creative ways to display your logo could lead to more business for you in the future.



While monograms are usually reserved to signify someone’s name, you can use the monogram design as part of your logo. For instance, if you have a lifestyle brand, you can offer your customers the Personalized Whiskey Scotch Bar Glasses, which can feature the first letter of your company name. Of course, this works best if you’ve already established the monogram logo as one of the ways that customers identify with your brand. The elegant design will likely be a welcome gift and will increase brand recognition.



An engraved banner provides you with the space to spell out the name of your business, especially if you choose a promotional gift like the Logo Beer Growler. The beer growler provides enough room for you to feature the first letter of your business in calligraphy font, with a banner underneath the monogram to spell out the name of your company. The beer growler also makes a great gift for loyal customers and will serve as a fitting marketing piece if you are promoting any brand.


Engraved Company Name

If you want to thank your clients for their continued patronage or want to promote a new product that you are introducing, you may want to present customers with the Corporate Logo Engraved Wine Glass. This item has a frosted banner that allows you to have both the name of your company and your logo featured on the glass. The banner also includes a detailed border design to add elegance and sophistication to the item. These glasses also make ideal gifts for your employees or can serve as a prize for a giveaway or promotional event. The wine glass also makes an excellent keepsake or decorative item that you can feature in your office, which will serve as a powerful marketing tool when you are meeting with clients.


Engraved Logo

Glasses and growlers will serve as notable gifts for customers and potential clients, and if you have already given these as a present, you could feature your logo on a serving platter or cheese board. The serving tray is made from slate, and your company’s monogram and logo will be featured in the center on a shield and banner. The Custom Logo Slate Serving Tray, Cheese Board, is a visually appealing and practical gift, especially for clients who entertain often and can be given with an accompanying wine glass to make a stunning gift that will leave a lasting impression.

These engraved logo gifts are not only suitable for business purposes but can be given as tokens of appreciation after a special event like a wedding or anniversary party. Take a look at all the custom gifts we offer to find one that matches your style.
