Suit hire places often sell cuff links.... Peter Posh have a great varied selection not with just the usual best man etc on...

Or a red letter day / Virgin gift , they do various ones for different prices and when I’ve bought them online they’ve come really quickly ( bought partner a flying lesson but they do loads)...

You dont have to do gifts, but the fact you already have bought them them I would just explain this to then and perhaps meet for a little lunch a few days later to give them out. It would be quite nice and personal xx

Don't worry about it, just let them know what has happened and give them later!

I managed to get my groomsmen cuff links from Clinton cards of all places! They had hip flasks too. They wasn’t too expensive at all! I got married back in 2015 but I know they still sell them as I saw them in there not so long ago. Xx

You don’t have to do gifts, they’re just to show your appreciation, the fact that you’ve already got them something and getting this stressed because they haven’t arrived shows how great full you are. Just give them to them when they arrive x

We bought plain tankard glasses from matalan and glitter glue from hobby craft and made personalised glasses for them - unique to ones you can buy and they loved them. Or we also wrote little poems and put them in a frame for some too

I did photos in photo frames after the wedding from our professional photographer.... it was like two months after the fact, and everyone loved them (or said they did ) I thought it was more personal then something they'd store at a back of a cupboard x

We brought bottles of spirits for our groomsmen

Can’t go wrong with vouchers and alcohol. I said I’m my H2Bs present.

Etsy do matching socks with their name and role that they send out the next day if you order it early enough - mine are on their way right now!
