You’ve set out your seating plan, coordinated the catering and finalised the flowers. The big day is edging closer. Have you thought about ‘thank you’ gifts for your groomsmen? You want a gift that’s special, yet affordable … thoughtful, yet practical. It can be tricky finding just the right thing, so that’s why we’ve rounded up some great groomsmen gift ideas to get you inspired.
Handcrafted leather gifts for groomsmen
We craft everything by hand in our Devon workshop, with quality and longevity in mind. The wonderful thing about our distinctive leather products is that, as they age with use, they will each develop a unique patina depending on how and where they are used. With the right care and attention, a Colville Leather gift will mature with its owner, and for a groomsman, will serve as a special, unique reminder of the role they played in your big day.
The Levee wallet
A timeless classic, this bi-fold, vegetable tanned leather wallet makes a fitting gift for groomsmen. Hand-finished for a vivid, natural look, The Levee combines beautiful craftsmanship with practicality, providing plenty of storage for cards, notes and receipts. A perfect gift for your groomsmen to tuck into their wedding attire!
The Levee wallet costs £68 (free UK delivery).
Oak bark tanned leather belt
Described as a “beautiful and sturdy piece of art” by one of our customers, this oak bark tanned leather belt really is something your groomsmen can treasure for life. In fact, Colville Leather’s very own leather worker Matt recently crafted each of his groomsmen one of these stunning oak bark belts.
This very special leather is made in a local Devon tannery using a traditional English tanning process. It is tanned over an 18-month long process, using only stripped oak bark and stream water. The result? A strong and flexible leather that smells incredible and proudly displays its natural characteristics. The belt is finished with solid brass British buckles and rivets that will last for years to come. The brass finishes contribute to the overall classic design of this belt, making it perfect for everyday use.
The oak bark tanned leather belt costs £89, with free UK delivery.
