Do you buy gifts for the ushers in your wedding? The answer is yes. Wedding ushers are an important part of your day; they help lead guests to their seats at the ceremony and field common questions like, "Where's the coat check?" and "How can I find the bathroom?" All this considered, gifts for wedding ushers are a courteous gesture that doesn't go unappreciated—and buying gifts for your ushers shows you've got stellar etiquette skills, to boot. Of course, you don't have to spend an arm and a leg on their presents. But the bottom line is, don't skip out on a chance to express your gratitude for your wedding ushers—even if it's with something small.

Looking for inspiration? While you may not have a hard time knowing exactly what to get your bridesmaids and groomsmen, knocking wedding usher gifts off your list can be a bit trickier. Some wedding ushers might be teenagers, some might be adults and they all might have diverse styles and hobbies. Thankfully, we did the grunt work for you, searching high and low for appropriate gifts. Ahead, we've got gift ideas for wedding ushers of all ages and personalities.

1. GOLDTOE Carlyle Argyle 3-Pair Crew Socks

Three knee length argyle socks in gray, black. blue, and green shades.

Everybody wears socks—and coordinating pairs from a good brand for all of your ushers will go a long way. This practical, thoughtful wedding usher gift idea can even be something that they use the day of your nuptials. These classic argyle socks, sold in sets of three pairs, are the perfect balance between fun and functional.

2. Jacques Torres Chocolate Milk Chocolate Bonbons

Orange box of beautiful chocolates in an array of colors and shapes.

If you need inspiration for usher wedding gift ideas, you can't go wrong with chocolate. This set contains a dozen milk chocolate candies, all set into different shapes and finished with fun patterns and some iridescent shine. Don't be surprised if you see your ushers snacking on these at cocktail hour because they couldn't wait to dig in.

3. Nature-Esque Seaside Plumeria Candle

Candle in a frosted glass with a wooden lid and a minimalist label.

Candles are another group-pleasing gift for wedding ushers. This dreamily scented option—with notes of plumeria, gardenia, ylang-ylang and more—features a wooden wick and burns for approximately 60 hours. Bonus: Under the bamboo lid is a word of affirmation.

4. Cufflinks Inc. Cat's Eye Cuff Links

Silver cat-eye cufflinks with a black center.

If your ushers are all wearing suits, how about a nice pair of cuff links as a present for them? These elegant cuff links feature a simple, yet stylish design, with rhodium plating and a cat's-eye inlay. They'll add that little extra something to polish the group's looks and they're a gift that ushers can use again and again.

5. Leatherology Magnetic Money Clip

Leather money clip keeps a stack of bills nearly folded in half.

Made from full-grain leather, this sleek, monogrammable money clip is chic and practical. It features an ultra-slim profile and a convenient magnetic closure to keep the recipient's cash secure. Plus, it's available in myriad colors to match the personal styles of your wedding ushers.

6. Gift Box Love Co. Acrylic Photo Frame

Acrylic photo frame features a photo of two girls smiling and laughing together.

If you didn't have time to pick out a wedding usher gift before your big day, consider framing a special photo of you and each usher once you get your wedding photos. We love how sleek and simple this chunky acrylic photo frame is—just send the photo along with your order request and you'll have a great usher wedding gift idea. (Or, if you have your act together before your nuptials, grab this gift with a photo you already have of the two of you.)

7. Max . Playful Sports Mug

Sports-ball shaped mugs.

Adults can use these fun mugs for tea or that giant cuppa coffee they need to make it through the work day. And kids and teens will love using these oversized mugs to sip hot chocolate or even eat cereal out of. Choose from softball, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer designs.

8. Robin Exports Vintage-Style Brass Pocket Compass

Round brass navigational instrument with a vintage design.

As a thank-you to wedding ushers for showing guests to their seats, ensure they're always going in the right direction with this functional compass. The vintage-inspired design has a cool weathered brass finish with copper accents. It looks like it's already seen a few adventures in the best way.

9. YETI Rambler 20 Oz. Tumbler

Turquoise colored tumbler with silver detailing and a plastic lid.

Every usher in your posse will appreciate this heavy-duty tumbler. Choose from a wide variety of colors—the gifts can even coordinate with your wedding color palette. You can also personalize each tumbler with text or artwork to create the YETI drinking vessels of your dreams.

10. Craighill Kepler Pen

Black stainless steel pen with a sleek design.

Express your gratitude for your ushers with a handwritten note. Even better? Pair it with a handsome pen for them to scribe their own cards for years to come. This refillable PVD stainless steel pen (which uses Schmidt 635 refills) is available in cool black or classic brass.

11. Magic Hour Black Magic Tea Sampler Box

Black satchels of different flavored teas sit in a box.

Since your wedding ushers may be a mix of youngsters and adults, you'll want to give a drink that they can all enjoy (leave the whiskey gifts for your legal-aged wedding party peeps). This women-owned luxury tea brand makes fair-trade teas that are as gorgeous as they are delicious. Our top pick? The Black Magic Sampler Box, which includes six pouches of the brand's black teas, from Vanilla Earl Grey and Coconut Chai to the bestselling Bohemian Breakfast.

12. Uncommon Goods Self-Care Gift Set

Set of self care items, including soaps, therapy dough, and affirmation cards.

For a nice gift for the young ushers at your wedding and adult ushers alike, why not spoil them with some TLC? This assortment of goodies includes lavender shower steamers, vanilla hand soap, lavender therapy dough for squeezing during stressful moments and a deck of affirmation cards. It'll help them unwind after the wedding for sure.

13. Barbour Cotton Zip Washbag

Hunter green toiletry bag with brass detailing and a side handle.

This durable pouch will help your ushers keep all of their toiletries organized whenever they travel. Available in a gorgeous olive green color, we also like that this storage bag has an outer zipper pocket where they can keep items like cuff links or a watch. It'll come in handy to hold all of their wedding accessories, too.

14. BlueSnail Folding Wooden Chess Set

Vintage wooden chess set with light and dark colored pieces arranged for the start of a game.

You're sure to make your ushers happy with this wonderful chess board that has a foldable design (they can store the pieces inside the board if they're on the go). Plus, if your ushers are all youngsters and they need to stay occupied while the wedding party takes photos, it's a way to keep teens busy and entertained. Though, we think it's a great gift for ushers of any age.

15. Uncommon Goods Mountains of the World Rocks Glass

Stylish glass with a mountain print etched on the side.

Ah, what to get ushers for a wedding gift if they love the outdoors? Our vote is this creative rocks glass adorned with famous mountains of the world. Better yet, in your card to your ushers, say you hope to join them on an alpine excursion soon, assuming you're also an outdoor enthusiast.

16. The Knot Shop Personalized Cigar Cutter and Travel Tube Gift Set

Personalized steel cigar case, cutter, and lighter pictured with two cigars.

This stainless steel cigar set is a classic adult usher gift that they're sure to use again and again. It includes a traditional-style cigar cutter that's monogrammed with their initials in a sleek, modern font and a travel tube to save unfinished cigars for later. We say add a cigar to the tube before you gift it for an extra-special touch.

17. DoorDash Gift Card

Let your ushers know that a meal is on you as a way to show your appreciation for them showing up early to help on your wedding day. Choose from a gift card between $25 and $200. It gets emailed to them to redeem for delivery from restaurants nationwide through DoorDash.

18. Ari Siegel History by Mail Subscription

Historic documents that come in a subscription.

For an usher gift your crew can enjoy after your wedding day, we love this monthly mail subscription service which sends recipients meticulously made replicas of historical documents. Think: Albert Einstein's correspondence with FDR or Rosa Parks' police report when she refused to give up her seat on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. It's great for any history buffs in your wedding party.

19. Paravel Fold-Up Belt Bag

Red belt bag with navy blue and white detailing.

Fanny packs are having a moment (again). This stylish version from Paravel is super lightweight and folds up to the size of about a deck of cards. With two zippered pockets and an adjustable strap, this bag comes in six versatile hues. Add an embroidered monogram in a rainbow of colors for an additional $10.

20. Jon and Julie Rousseau Personalized Live Edge Wooden Map Clock

Clock made from the cross section of a tree trunk and painted with a colorful map.

Since they're helping guide guests to their seats, return the favor to your ushers by giving them a functional gift that guides them through their days. This customized map clock lets you choose a special spot to showcase (perhaps the destination of your wedding or your childhood hometown if you grew up in the same community) and comes with a display stand and a hook on the back for wall mounting.
