Asking someone to be your groomsman or best man is no small ask — from buying a suit to attending rehearsals to any necessary travel, there’s a lot of time (and money) that goes into being in a wedding party. While it’s undoubtedly a big honor, it’s important to show gratitude to your groomsmen.
Since your groomsmen might consist of a disparate group of ages and interests, ranging from older family members to college buddies, it’s a good idea to put together a few small gifts that anyone can appreciate. From monogrammed flasks to quality toiletry bags, the best gifts are the ones that are useful and just a little sentimental. These gifts don’t all have to be serious, either. A great small gift is a beer koozie. Sure, it’s not a showstopper, but it’s a great addition to a gift bag and something that your groomsmen can actually use. While they may just seem like promotional or gag gifts, koozies are actually pretty effective at keeping beer cold.
Koozies are inexpensive, which is a big plus considering how expensive weddings are. Koozies are known for having funny (and sometimes tacky) slogans, but you can get koozies with wedding-specific messages. These can be a great thing to bring out at a bachelor party. Whether you’re bar-hopping in Nashville or chilling in a rented cabin, having personalized beer koozies will remind you of the big day. And you can use them during the reception, too. These are some of our favorite bachelor party beer koozies. We’ve also included some blank ones that can be easily printed on with custom messages, as well as one specifically for the bride and groom.
1. Shop4Ever Groom and Groom’s Drinking Team Member Can Coolie
This set consists of six groomsmen koozies, plus one for the groom. The groom’s koozie is white and simply says “Groom,” and it also has small illustrations of beer. The groomsmen’s koozies come in black and say “Groom’s Drinking Team Member.” Since these koozies don’t explicitly say “groomsman,” they can be great for any extended bachelor party with friends who are going to the wedding but won’t be in the wedding party. They’re also available in sets of 12 or 24.
Pros: Available in various quantities. “Groom’s Drinking Team Member” koozies make these a good option for bachelor parties that extend beyond the groomsmen.
Cons: Only one colorway available.
2. Your Dream Party Shop Bachelor Party Can Coolers
This pick is available in a few different colors, and they come in a set of 12. There’s one groom koozie and 11 “Groom Squad” koozies. The koozies are also emblazoned with a mustache. The “Groom Squad” koozies are all in black, but you can choose between green, red, grey and navy for the groom’s koozie. The font on each is big and legible, so there won’t be any confusion as to what the party is for.
Pros: Big clear font and a simple design. Groom’s koozie is available in a few different colors.
Cons: Only available in one quantity, which is a set of 12.
3. TahoeBay 12 Blank Beer Can Coolers
Personalized gifts go a long way, and they don’t have to be too expensive, either. If you want unique koozies (or the other options on this list just don’t speak to you), consider ordering this set of blank koozies as gifts for your bachelor party. They’re available in over two dozen colors, and you can get them in quantities ranging between 12 and 1,000 (if you have a really, really big wedding). Customization is not offered from this listing, but the fabric lends itself well to sublimation printing or heat transfer. There’s absolutely no branding on the koozies.
Pros: Completely blank koozies available in dozens of colors. Good material for a variety of screen printing techniques or fabric markers.
Cons: Customization is not available from this listing, so it will have to be done yourself.
