It’s officially wedding season! While late spring through early fall are wonderful months for celebrating your big day, they aren’t ideal months for keeping costs in check. That’s why these ideas on best man and maid of honor gifts under $50 are so timely.
With this being such a popular season for weddings, it’s insane how easy it is to see your costs rise to the average amount Americans spend on weddings these days (a stunning $35,000). A price tag like that just feels ridiculous, especially when there are so many ways to save money on your summer wedding.
One easy way to keep costs down, which many brides and grooms don’t think about until the last minute are the gifts they traditionally give to the best man and maid of honor. If you’re looking to trim the fat responsibly off your wedding budget, these killer best man and maid of honor gifts under $50 will give you some nice options to consider.
And, guess what? They’re all available through Amazon Prime, just in case you really do need to buy one last minute. I mean, let’s be real; you have enough going on right now trying to get ready for your big day and these gifts don’t require you to go out to the store to get them.
Killer Best Man Gifts For Under $50
Looking for best man gift ideas? Here are four affordable, but fun gifts to give.
1. Breakfast Sandwich Maker
Sure, it might seem like a non-traditional gift, but this sandwich maker is great for the best man who has been in so many weddings that all their monogrammed flasks can’t even fit in the cabinet anymore.
2. Luxury Socks
My husband would actually love this as a gift. It’s a set of three pairs of wacky dress socks that come nicely packaged. This is perfect if your best man works in an office or just likes to feel swanky.
3. Portable Survival Kit
This is such a cool gift, and any guy would love it whether they put it in their car or take it on a camping trip. You get a small 2.5 backpack but it has an incredible amount of tools in it like a shovel, pickaxe, rope, bottle opener, fire making tool and more.
4. Home Bar Set
This is a nice, compact home bar set that includes a 13 oz. Shaker, Ice Tong, Bar Spoon, Bar Knife, Bottle Opener, Cork Screw, Strainer, etc. It all comes in a classy wooden organizer too that would look great even when it’s sitting out.

5. White Freshwater Pearl Stud Earrings
It’s not often you find earrings made of 14k gold at an affordable price. These are fashionable and are made with white freshwater pearls. You really can’t go wrong with giving someone pearls as a gift.
6. Alex and Ani Bangle
Alex and Ani Bangles are incredibly popular for a reason. They are affordable, personalized and memorable. This one is made especially with a maid of honor in mind.
7. Canvas Tote With Initial
As a southern gal, I love anything with my name or initials on it. Sometimes it takes longer to order a product if you have to wait for them to customize it with your specific monogram on it. However, these Canvas totes come with all the letters of the alphabet.
8. A Designer Silk Scarf
I was really surprised at the scarf selection on Amazon. I searched some of their top brands for scarves, and I found Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, and Vince Camuto silk scarves available for a low price.
As evidenced, you don’t have to buy your maid of honor or your best man a predictable gift. If they’ve been in weddings before, chances are they’ve received some of the most common gifts. No one says that you have to buy your maid of honor a robe or your best man a flask.
You can go out of the box and buy something that suits their personality. Even better, these killer wedding party gifts are all under $50!
You might even want to consider getting them an experience like a massage that you schedule for a few days after you wedding to thank them for helping you or a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant.
The point is to show them that you appreciate their friendship and are so grateful that they’ll be by your side on your big day.
