Help: Groomsman gifts?

FI actually totally just asked me - "does Project Wedding have any recommendations for groomsman gifts?  websites to buy them at?"


I replied, "I'm on it.  Give me five minutes."


:-D


His kneejerk idea is flasks - which would be great for everyone except his brother, who doesn't drink at all.


Any other ideas/inspirations?

My FI couldn't think of a single thing because all his GMs are sooo different - my 18 bro doesn't drink, his bro won't drink anything but cheap beer and thinks flasks are weird, and the other two are older and have grown out of the partying stage so wouldn't use a flask...


I had someone tell me her husband got a monogrammed keychain bottle opener and she loves it, said they use it all the time!


We ended up going with personalized leather cooler bags...they hold a 6 pack if you want to otherwise the tray comes out and it's just a manly lunch bag lol. We thought the wives of the older guys might kind of like it too. HTH!

He could do wallets, money clips, pocket watches, accessories for the day of (socks, tie, shoes etc.-this is what we did in addition to giving each GM some silver for investment purposes), Swiss army knives, etc. Try looking at Things Remembered. They have lovely items that can be engraved. They often run a special too so you can get some savings. HTH! : )

We did all Buffalo themed gifts since that's where we're from, but you could do it for anywhere I'm sure!


We did "Believe in Buffalo" t-shirts.


We did all Buffalo photo 3098861-1


Buffalo tumblers:

You could also do cufflinks depending on the shirt that the guys are wearing.

My FI just ended up buying his groomsmen their suits since he was able to get them during a Jos A Banks sale.

One key DH and I have discussed: Considering your groomsmen. We went super simple with ours. We got them glasses with their names etched in (wish we did monograms!) and miller lite pony kegs for each of them. They're all more "practical" guys and DH felt keepsakes wouldn't mean much to them.


Now, doesn't mean your guys won't like the keepsakes! I say consider them and their likes because in the past, DH got what he considered a "useless" gift. :/ He was the best man and they got him this big glass container that said "Thanks for always being my wingman" and had Grand Marnier in it, as well as some fancy set of metal shotglasses and some all metal flask that came in a wooden carrying case. He doesn't drink liquor. Hates the stuff. He gave the liquor and bottle away and has no idea where the other stuff is.

Hi Emily! :) We are doing custom ties for our GM's for the wedding. We are getting them from here on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/toybreaker 


The seller is awesome and sent us swatches with ink so we could pick what colors we wanted together.


Our ties have a big unicorn on them! (FI is obsessed with unicorns)


Unicorn. Silkscreened microfiber necktie. Standard, narrow or skinny width.

We bought them their outfits, since we were asking them to wear specific khakis and a button down from Banana Republic (we didn't do suits as we had an outdoor wedding in the summer)


If you ARE doing suits or tuxes, you could pay for their rentals and get a pair of socks to go with....not super original, but it does help with costs...which can get expensive for the people standing up with you.

We got our groomsmen the ties they will be wearing.  Additionally, we got them personalized glass mugs. We have a groomsman that doesn't drink either which is why we went witht he mugs because he doesn't need to have alcohol in it.

DH did something different for each guy.  For three of them it was to do with drinking. For his brother, who doesn't drink, he did a pocket watch.



You could do something to do with an interest of theirs.  For one of the wedding party we ended up getting a chinese caligraphy set as they really LOVED anything of chinese origin.
