Jewelry gifts for the wedding party are a much-loved tradition. And there are inexpensive options.
Earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are typical. And I’ve included some. But what, exactly, is jewelry? For purposes of this discussion, it’s pretty much any piece of bling you keep nearby throughout the day.
So, keep that definition in mind here as you discover these 12 affordable wedding party gift jewelry wedding ideas for the gang who is helping you get hitched.
Inexpensive “Jewelry” for the Groomsmen and Dads
Watches, keychains, tie bars, and cufflinks all qualify as jewelry in my book. The guys’ version of bling.

1. Do you want to go further off the beaten wedding party gift path? How about a phone case?
This one’s understated elegance will fit quite well with any wedding. The dignified initial is reminiscent of a single-letter monogram.
The case is black. Your phone color shows through the initial and on the sides. Learn more or buy it from Daniela here.
2. Totally custom map cufflinks.
Unique custom cufflinks make wonderful groomsmen wedding gifts idea. See how Linsey uses vintage maps to create these. The location is 100% personalizable.
If maps aren’t your thing, she also makes an almost endless variety of unexpected styles. I’m kind of in love with the personalized envelope ones. And the little wedding vow roses.
I’m not alone in loving Linsey’s work. She’s coming up on almost 4,000 reviews with a SOLID top-star rating.
Seriously, you need to go to Linsey’s store here. You can find cufflink styles to fit the personality of everyone in your wedding party.
3. “I can’t believe the price and quality…” “Absolutely stunning work!” “The engraving was to perfection!”
These are just a few of the phrases customers are using in their reviews of Timothy’s gunmetal pocket watches.
Watches make for a time-honored gift. And pocket watches add panache to the look.
Combine that with an artisan that can do no wrong in his customers’ eyes. It’s an irresistible combination.
A tip for you: Consider leaving the wedding date off the watches. People tend to feel weird carrying around anything with a random date on it. Unless it’s their own wedding or anniversary date.
Go here for more information or to buy the pocket watches. Be sure to look at the review photos to see how the no-date option looks.
4. This father of the bride keychain is a fan favorite. Natalie wrote the heartfelt I loved you first poem printed on the presentation card.
Take a look through the 5,000 top-star reviews. Notice she often includes a thoughtful free gift with your order as well.
5. If your dads are the classic type, tie bars are the ideal gifts.
Kristina will engrave “Father of the Bride” or “Father of the Groom” on her traditional-look style. Or have her make one with custom wording from you.
