Gifts for Ushers and Best Man
I was an usher for a mate at the weekend – wasn’t expecting anything as a thanks, but was very pleased to be given a voucher for a family photograph – which was rather suitable as I was talking to my wife about a family picture of the 3 of us now the daughter is 1…the other ushers were given hipflasks, but as I don’t drink he reckoned the picture voucher was more apt – which I had to agree with…well pleased with it.
I guess, you either go for a traditional lads gift i.e. hipflask that covers everything – whether they use it or not (the other ushers will use them so it was apt) or you get a little creative and get something that will be appreciated and used (in my case a family picture voucher)…might be a bit harder to think of a gift but is probably going to be appreciated more.Posted 8 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
I tend to think something like hipflask/pen/good lighter (dependant on the person’s lifestyle) is always a good thing.
The photo voucher would be a nice idea for the right person ie, my best man was my younger brother and a photo voucher for a single bloke with no intention of ever meeting someone and settling down would be frankly worthless. But he liked the fancy lighter we bought him.Posted 8 years agoMilkieMember
I was an usher at the weekend. It is tradition to give cufflinks to the ushers. When I say tradition, it must be the last 3 times I’ve been an usher I have been given cufflinks.
The cufflinks were a little different this time, rather than having “Usher” they had my nickname/dj name engraved, which was a nice touch.Posted 8 years agoswooshMember
I got my lads all pewter tankards with their initials engraved on them, harder to break than a glass and should last for years.
Where did you get yours from Shandy?
I do agree with you CaptainFlashheart that he will only be best man for the day but i think he will really like it. he is really excited about being bast man. Might just get him cufflinks with his initials on then.Posted 8 years agoswooshMember
Getting married in a few weeks and wanting to get my Ushers and Best Man a little gift to say thank you, but what should i get them? Is there a tradition?
I’m thinking maybe a personallised glass etched with name, our names and date of wedding for all plus a set of ‘Best Man’ cuff-links for the best man. does that sound ok or should it be a bit more than that?
Thanks for any tipsPosted 8 years agohillspleaseMember
Hipflasks good. Cufflinks good.
Bespoke shirts from Frank Rawstrom of Manchestershire were well received and provided an opportunity to all get together before the big day, without being bladdered/ surfing/ driving a hovercraft/ frenzied drunken Dad dancing – all of which are more exciting than a shirt fitting.Posted 8 years agoguidoSubscriber

To be honest the best gift i got was when they asked me to do it. I love both gifts and couldent care less about the value. Nether will he.
