A man can never have too many knives, especially if one is personally chosen by a close friend and engraved with his name. This distressed steel pocket knife provides the perfect tool for any adventure with an included serrated blade, seat belt cutter, bottle opener, and belt clip.

There’s something elegant about a personalized gift box. This one, which comes in a natural, walnut, ebony, or black finish, makes any gift feel like a thoughtful gesture because it shows the level of care you put into assembling it. Even after the cigars or other enclosed gifts are gone, the box will remain as a useful storage item and a reminder of the wedding experience.

Take it up a notch: Fill the box with a pack of fine cigars, a heartfelt letter, a tie or cufflinks for the wedding, or other small gifts.
