22 Bachelor Party Favors That the Guys Will Be Happy to Bring Home
Some say it's his last night of freedom, others say it's honoring a new beginning. Whatever the perspective, bachelor parties (also known as stag parties) are a rite of passage not to be missed. The groom might be fine with a night of watching Star Wars with his buddies or be the kind of guy that wants to go wild and make some memories. No matter which type of celebration is planned, bachelor party favors are an essential component to marking this historic event. After all, how else is everyone going to remember what happened? (Kidding—sort of.)
When shopping for bachelor party favors—or bachelorette party favors for that matter—it's important to keep in mind how many gifts you'll need and how much you want to spend all-in. The event style, location and the groom's preferences should also be a big part of deciding what to give. From shot glasses and hiking hats to personalized Hawaiian shirts and matching keychains, we've pulled together the best of the best bachelor party gifts for the groom and his groomsmen. Don't worry, we kept our gift ideas classy—without losing any of the fun.

If his friends are looking for a new hobby to pick up, this beer-making kit might be the perfect gift idea for them (not to mention a great bachelor party idea in general—a beer brewing class!). It comes complete with everything they'll need to try their hand at at-home fermentation, including hops and beer-making yeast. Cheers, guys!
The Knot Shop Cool Favor Sunglasses
With eleven colors to choose from (including black, gold and bright blue), these retro-cool sunglasses are an easy and affordable choice for a bachelor bash favor. They'll match almost any theme, color scheme or personality and will make for some seriously dapper photo ops.

Bespoke Post Trail Box
Bespoke Post is amazing at pulling together classy kits filled with things guys actually care about. This kit is one of the pricier bachelor party favors on our list, but it's the ideal option for an outdoorsy bachelor weekend with just a few close pals. Filled with nature essentials (like a knife and book about surviving the great outdoors), it'll be especially handy for his city-slicker friend who may not be as experienced in the backcountry as they'd like to think.
ChumsClassic Neoprene Sunglasses Retainer
Fishing trip? River tubing? Pool party? If water is involved, a floating sunglasses retainer is worth its (very light) weight in gold. The price is right for these, and they will get used for years to come—as will the sunglasses attached to them, thanks to you.

Pools, lakes and relaxing river runs all call for an in-water cooler where drinks and snacks can be stored within a floating arm's reach. This one has a lidded storage compartment in the center for ice, snacks and extra drinks, plus four cup holders. Give everyone their own to take home as a memento of their chill time at the bachelor party.
Filson Tin Cloth Packer Hat
Rugged grooms and their posse will appreciate the well-worn sophistication of this weatherproof Filson hat. It's not too hipster or too old-fashioned, even if Filson has been making hats since 1897. It's a timeless classic, just like the bachelor himself.

Plus, it uses a rechargeable battery and lasts up to 200 hours on the lowest setting. Did we mention it has a dimmer? You bet it does.

Cocktail kits are a fun way to get everyone involved in the party. Each box from Cheeky Cocktails comes with instructions for one cocktail recipe and enough supplies for five servings (spirits not included). You can choose from margaritas, mojitos, gimlets and more to keep the night interesting—or just send guests home with a kit to make on their own. If it's the bride who's more into mixology, these make excellent gifts for the bridal party as well.
Personalization Mall Poker Night Personalized Playing Cards
For many dudes, playing poker is more than just a game—it's a time for bonding with their bros while testing their ability to spot a bluff and keep a straight face. Custom playing cards are exactly the right party favor to hand out after a night of party games (or a casino-based bash).

Sir Jack's 6oz Pewter Captive Top Flask
Sometimes, it's a good idea to exercise budget restraint—but weddings aren't usually those times. A high-quality keepsake is exactly the kind of extravagance that a bachelor party calls for. Show some serious 007-level panache with these pewter flasks, which are handcrafted in England and feature a hinge-top screw cap. Bring them on the bachelor excursion for a stylish way to sip on the sly. These are so exceptional that they could easily double as groomsmen gifts, a special thank-you gift for the best man or a wedding gift for the groom. Bonus: Custom monogram engraving can be added for an extra fee.
Carolina Can Coolers Personalized Insulated Can Cooler
We're suckers for gag gifts, so it's no surprise that we love these custom can coolers. Choose a photo of the groom's fiancé to watch over the bachelor party, or honor the man himself with a classic snapshot of his face instead.

In fact, these could be used for both the bachelor party and the bachelorette party or even as wedding favors.

Order up a bunch of these for any bachelor party with a campfire, bonfire, fire pit or grill on the agenda. The telescoping arm gets up to 42 inches long, so everyone can master their roasting skills without having to singe their arm hair at the same time.
