Warp Pipe Can Cozy
If you want to keep drinks cool while also keeping that condensation off your hands, this is exactly the gift you need. It also happens to look like a retro version of the Mario warp pipe, which means it’s even more awesome.
God of War Stein
Instead of a piece of glassware, make your groomsmen buddies feel really badass with a wooden custom-made mug. You can order these personalized with their names on them, so everyone will know who their heroes are.
Game of Thrones Decanter Set
They’ll stay warm all winter when you gift them this decanter set inspired Game of Thrones. You can order the items individually or get them a whole set as a great thank you gift for a groomsman.
You can buy these in two different sizes and pick whichever center color matches your wedding the best. You’ll have to decide if you want to stick some more bricks to this or not, though.
LEGO Brick Necktie
If you’re a LEGO fan but aren’t quite committed to the LEGO bowtie, this is a great compromise. It still looks classy but still has a cool LEGO brick design.
Star Trek Lapel Pin
This is what we call compromise with your spouse to be. Give one to each of your groomsmen and bring a little bit of geek to an otherwise conventional wedding with these
Geeky Belt Buckle
Another great groomsman gift idea that they can wear on your wedding day! Gift everyone matching geeky belt buckles, like these ones made from recycled circuit boards.
Game Over Socks
A little self-deprecating humor can be fun sometimes. Gift these funny socks to all your groomsmen to wear on your wedding day to remind you of what’s to come.
You can’t go wrong with a little geeky reference in your groomsmen’s wedding attire. This one is inspired by Doctor Who, complete with a sonic screwdriver and TARDIS.
Just in case your groomsmen need to “size up” the situation. These cufflinks look like a triangle and protractor, ideal for any unexpected math problems.
Geeky Bow Tie
Instead of referencing one thing, have everyone look like a classic geek! These wooden bow ties definitely will look geeky, but also awesome, matching on all your groomsmen.
Custom Dress Socks
Some of the best groomsmen gifts are the ones that are customizable. Make each one of your best buds feel like special your wedding day by gifting everyone a pair of these geeky dress socks.
Comic Book Boutonniere
Another alternative to real flowers, these handmade paper boutonnieres are made from recycled comic books. A nice nerdy addition to your wedding party’s suits!
Comic Book Necktie
Everyone in your wedding party should have matching ties, or at least the ones you pick out. Get your groomsmen each one as a gift idea so they can bring out your inner geek (and theirs) during the ceremony.
A Nice Watch
This is especially great if your groomsmen aren’t the type to already own a nice watch to wear on your wedding day. Of course, get them something with a geeky twist like this nerdy math watch.
Circuit Board Tie Clip
If you don’t want geeky neckties (or can’t convince your spouse to be to agree), opt for something classy and more subtle. These recycled circuit board tie clips look great while still reminding everyone that you’re a geek. Perfect.
If you’re looking for a groomsman gift idea that they can not only wear to the wedding but also wear again after then these Marvel socks are a good option. Gift them each a pair or all 5 for a groomsman gift.
There isn’t much more iconic than the D-20 if you’re a tabletop gaming geek. Particularly if you have an affinity for DnD. Make your friends (and let’s be honest, probably your DnD gaming group) wear these great geeky cufflinks at your wedding.
Gameboy Enamel Pin
This Etsy shop also has listings for a bunch of retro game consoles, so no matter what kind of gaming geek you are, there’s a pin for you, which is perfect if you’re looking for something to gift to your groomsmen that can also be worn on their lapel.
If any part of your wedding is going to be outdoors, you’ll all definitely be wanting sunglasses. Give everyone a coordinating pair for a great photo op!

Don’t leave the Jr. Groomsmen out of the gift-giving! This set is perfect for the boys in your wedding party or your ring bearer.
Floppy Disc Coasters
Remember, floppy discs? They’re pretty much obsolete now, so you might as well use it a drink coaster. This would make a great geeky gift idea for your groomsmen for sure.
Millennium Falcon Cutting Board
Practical gift ideas for your groomsmen like this Star Wars-inspired cutting board are a nice way to say “thank you” while giving something they can actually use.
Up To No Good Sign
This is probably the motto for the bachelor party, too. Give your Harry Potter geek groomsmen this sign to hang up in their houses or man caves.
You can order this tapestry in a variety of sizes, depending on how big of an impact you want to have on your groomsmen. How awesome would this be hanging in their garage or game room, though?
Fancy Framed Meme Posters
Who doesn’t love meme gifts? These turn a popular meme into a high class looking art piece for a fun twist on home décor. Don’t forget to have it framed!
You Shall Not Pass Mat
If you’re a geek chances are your groomsmen are geeky too. Gift them some funny unwelcome mats like this one with the famous Lord of the Rings quote.
Beer Wall Art
The chemical composition for beer isn’t beryllium and erbium, but putting the two elemental symbols together does spell it, which is close enough.
These would be a great thank you gift for geeky groomsmen for after the wedding. Add in a case of their favorite beer for an even better surprise.
Star Wars Luggage Tag
If they’re going to be traveling to attend your wedding, include some geeky luggage tags with your “will you be my groomsman” gifts. This Star Wars one is a great choice (and perfect reference).
The Horde is one of the main political factions in WoW (World of Warcraft). This soap is excellent for washing all the blood off their hands after a tough battle, or just being clean for your wedding.
Organ Transplant Cooler
What’s inside? Probably not human organs, but it’s funny and geeky all the same. Do your friends a favor and fill it with their favorite beverage for a great groomsman gift idea.
Tool of Grooming
This little geeky groomsman gift idea packs a lot of punch. First of all, it’s a D&D reference. Secondly, it’s a personal gift that your groomsmen can actually use.
Doctor Who Sleep Mask
If you’ll be staying in a hotel, and especially sharing one, give your groomsmen their own sleeping mask as a gift. Of course, it wouldn’t be a geeky gift if it was just a regular mask: so look for ones that suit your interests like this Doctor Who sleep mask.
Give them one or give them all four! Your groomsmen are going to love these geeky soaps, and even better, they can actually use this gift.
LED Potion Lamp
You can tap this lamp to choose the color and watch it magically transform to all the classic potion colors. (Red for healing, blue for mana, etc.)
Geek Magnetic Poetry
Your groomsmen can go from just regular men to poets in a matter of seconds! Just gift each one a copy of this geek magnetic poetry kit to unleash the writer inside.
Matching Groom and Groomsman Shirts
The best shirt choice to hand out as groomsman gifts on the night of your bachelor party or other wedding party events, that’s for sure.
Legion of Regrettable Villains Book
Sometimes you just need a good laugh. This book is filled with the most regrettable supervillains that were ever dreamed up in the land of comic books.
Funny Math Shirt
This funny math shirt says come to the math size, we have pi. It would make a great shirt to give out at your bachelor party, too!
Shakespeare Party Game
Instead of traditional groomsmen gifts give them something they can actually enjoy: like a party game. Choose one that suits each of their personality so your gang will always have a good variety of games to play at get togethers.
Funny Party Game
Yet another party game choice, this one is generic enough that almost everyone (at least with a sense of humor) will have a good time. The perfect game to accompany a few drinks!
Roll for Initiative Underwear
Oh, dear. Not the kind of Dungeons and Dragons reference most people expect to see in their daily lives. Give it to your groomsmen and buy a pair for yourself for the wedding night.
Keychains are a small gift that can easily be kept as a long term reminder of your wedding. Give them something that symbolizes your geeky nature, like this Star Wars keychain that can be ordered in your choice of lightsaber color.
Thor Pen Holder
It will look like Mjolnir is sitting on their desk, but this replica actually serves a purpose beyond defending the Galaxy: it’s a pen holder. They say the pen is mightier than the sword, so maybe it’s also mightier than the magic hammer.
The Best Geeky Groomsman Gift – A Portable Charger
This is the gift you give your groomsmen before the wedding or when you’re first asking them to stand up for you. Wedding days are long and often at venues with little or no power. Help your groomsmen keep their phones charged so they can be reached by the babysitter or keep taking photos all night long.
Eating any kind of food is much more fun when you are using lightsaber chopsticks. The best part is that they are completely reusable too. No waste that way.
Chemist’s Spice Rack
Anyone who is into science or even a chemist teacher will get a huge kick out of this spice rack. Not your average run of the mill spice rack.
NES Controller Duffle Bag
This is handy if your groomsmen will have to travel for the bachelor party or the wedding. It’s also just a practical bag they can use for weekends away or going to the gym.
Retro Gamer Cassette Tape Wallets
These handmade Pac Man wallets are so cool! You can order them in your groomsmen’s favorite colors, too. For a creative idea, it would be cool to gift one of these wallets with a note inside asking them to stand up for you.
Super Hero Tie Clip
I really like this gift idea because it’s both practical (something your groomsmen can wear at the wedding) and there’s a huge selection. That means no matter what your geeky superhero affiliation is you should be able to find a SUPER tie clip for the special guys in your life.
Get everyone a matching tie clip, or assemble your very own league of wedding day superheroes!
Role Playing Character Travel Mug
If your groomsmen are also your D&D or other TTRPG gaming buddies skip the traditional gifts and get them each their own custom class travel mug. Psst, these are also great for keeping drinks cold too.
Zelda Breakable Pot With Rupees
This is another great gift idea if you want to combine geeky gift giving with asking someone to be your groomsmen. Add a note inside along with the rupees and have them break the post – Zelda style. Don’t worry, it can be rebuilt for a fun collectible that any gamer will appreciate.
If you’re already breaking tradition with geeky groomsmen gifts why not go all out and get your buds something really unique? There are so many fun options for adult models (like Lego) but I like how unique this real working robot is.
These geeky groomsman gifts are a lot of fun for any nerdy wedding party. Hopefully, your spouse needs little convincing to put all the geek gifts you want on the wedding registry.
