Are Gifts Necessary?
Yes. No way around it. You must show appreciation for all that you’ve asked them to do. If you’ve stood up in a wedding before, you know how much time and money goes into it. As the groom, you are responsible for all gifts for not just your groomsman but also any ushers and ring bearers. Your father and future father in law may also receive gifts. This is assuming they’ve been heavily involved in the process as well.
