So if you want to get the guys something fun for being part of your special day, we have a few ideas for you. Your buddies will thank you for all their cool gear, and you’ll have given them something to remember the special occasion!

Tactical Wedding Gifts for Groomsmen

You may have seen our Tactical Gifts guide, which has a ton of amazing gift options for any occasion. But in all honesty, not all of these products are the best choice for wedding favors, so we’re going to recommend a few that we think would work great. Choose some of these awesome TD products to create a killer gift basket for your groomsmen!
  1. Battle Briefs Socks One of our favorite products that we offer here at TD is our Battle Briefs socks. Now, we know what you might be thinking – aren’t socks kind of a boring gift? Well, yeah. Sometimes that’s the case, but Battle Briefs socks are different, and we’ll tell you why! Socks, while sometimes boring on their own, are a versatile gift that’s perfect for any occasion. They’re a necessity that almost everyone uses on a daily basis, so no one will be upset to receive a fresh pair. But Battle Briefs socks are unique; they have bold, funky patterns and bright color combos that you don’t find on regular socks. I mean, just check out the Battle Briefs Socks Unicorn pair!

    You can’t say that your buddies wouldn’t be stoked to see those in their groomsmen basket! They’re perfect for lounging around together, or (if you’re feeling extra bold), everyone could wear their matching socks to the ceremony or reception. We love these socks so much, we include them in almost all of our gift guides – they’re just that good.

  2. Morale Patches Are your groomsmen enlisted in the military? Maybe they’re just really into classic military insignia. If that’s the case, we recommend checking out our morale patches. These patches feature funny images or expressions and are traditionally used as identification within a unit, such as brigades or divisions. Even if you won’t be using these patches as they were originally intended, many people enjoy building their own collection of unique pieces.

    Plus, since the patches aren’t marked as official by military personnel, you and your friends could all wear matching patches together to indicate your bond. We have plenty of options to choose from, including the DG Get To The Choppa Patch – Green. Your buddies will get a kick out of these hilarious patches!

  3. Crew Neck Sweatshirts Looking for a practical gift that your groomsmen can get a lot of use out of? Crew neck sweatshirts from TD are a solid choice. Not only are these crew necks super comfortable, but they can be worn for a lot of different occasions. Do you have a fun night out at the bar planned for your bachelor party? Having everyone wear matching sweatshirts is a great way to celebrate while making sure nobody gets lost in the chaos. Want to get more comfortable after the ceremony so you can dance it out at the reception? Our crew necks are the perfect solution! If this sounds like something your friends would enjoy, then check out the Vans Freezing Cold Pullover Hoodie. It’s super comfortable and, since it comes in black, it’s versatile enough to be worn with anything.

  4. Gift Cards Our last rec is one that you can never really go wrong with, and that’s gift cards. Tactical Distributors gift cards are great for any occasion, so they make the perfect groomsmen’s gift. Grab one of these for each of your bros so they can pick out something they really want. Our gift cards are virtual, so they’re sent through email and have instructions for using them at checkout. Your friends will appreciate being able to pick out a gift that they know they’ll use!

Assembling a Groomsmen Emergency Kit

Once you’ve picked out the cool gifts, you might want to throw in some essentials. Think of it as a kind of emergency groomsmen kit, stocked up so you can equip your guys with everything they need to tackle the big day. Here are some ideas – throw in whatever seems relevant:
  • Extra Boutonnieres: Because missing flowers shouldn't kill the mood.
  • Mini Sewing Kit: Perfect for quick fixes on the fly.
  • Lint Roller: Say goodbye to stray fuzz and hello to perfection.
  • Stain Remover Pen: Spills happen, but they don’t need to ruin the day.
  • Shoe Polish: Because scuffed shoes don’t belong in a wedding.
  • Breath Mints: Make sure they have minty-fresh confidence for those heartfelt speeches.
  • Pain Relievers: Headaches don't stand a chance against the power of love... and ibuprofen.
  • Band-Aids: Blister prevention is key when breaking in those new dress shoes.
  • Safety Pins: A wardrobe malfunction's worst enemy.
  • Tissues: For tears of joy, duh!
  • Snacks and Water: Keeping energy levels up for a day filled with celebration.

Tactical Wedding Gifts for the Bride and Groom

If you're on a mission to find the ultimate wedding gift that packs a punch, look no further. You can equip the newlyweds with the gift of tactical training to make sure they are ready to tackle any challenge together. Get them a gift they'll look forward to as they start their new chapter. We recommend a gift certificate for a self-defense class, a firearms safety course, or even a tactical survival workshop. Because what's more badass than ensuring their safety and preparedness for whatever life throws their way? It's not just a gift—it's a game-changer. Get ready to impress the entire wedding party with a gift that's as tactical as it gets.

We hope this gift guide has helped you find a few new ideas, or that it at least inspired you to start looking into other tactical gear and training options. You really can’t go wrong with any of these, and we think your groomsmen will agree. If you have questions about any TD products, please give us a call.
