The people who invented the multitool have just comprehensively reinvented it. Some of Leather­man's beloved older models are cheaper, but the Free P4 packs in 21 tools and, thanks to magnets, can "genuinely be used one-handed." Buy it at Amazon.

3. Timex Marlin ($200)

A classic watch will help your groomsmen stay on schedule and serve them well for many years beyond. The Marlin is a reissue of a hand-wound 1960s model that features a silver face and an embossed calf-leather strap. Buy it at Amazon.

4. Blue Bottle at Home ($144 for a year)

Set your boys up for the year with a coffee subscription that will bring back memories of the wedding every time they brew a cup. Blue Bottle specializes in single-origin beans but also offers an assortment of high-quality blends. Buy it at Blue Bottle Coffee.

5. L.L. Bean Waxed Canvas Duffle ($159)

Make a gift of this classic duffle and you'll "send them home with a bag that's better than the one they arrived with." Cotton webbing and reinforced body increase durability, and the handles are full-grain leather. Buy it at L.L. Bean.
