Hi Ladies. So FI & I can NOT for the life of us find awesome GM gifts. FI has a VERY large close group of friends that are our GM & Ushers. 13 total; making out budget for each guy around $30-40. He doesnt want to get the Ushers less since they are all such close friends. We are getting them personalized Pilsners for our toast but dont know what else….
FI has been in at least 11 weddings in the past 5 years and does NOT want to do the cliche’ money clip, mug, flask, multi-tool, etc. His favorite thing so far has been the custom bobble heads but they are double our budget.
Right now he is leaning towards crystal globe (from a trophy website) that he want to put the GM names on the base to “sit on their desk” however Im not fond of the idea and most of the guys do NOT function like FI, let alone have a desk where they could appreciate a crystal globe.
I’m at such a loss… any ideas from anyone please!

we got our GM laptop bags with their monograms on them. simple, and useful because a lot of them are in fields where they lug them around all day.

We got them pocket knives, but where we live pocket knives are in EVERY man’s pocket.

I gave each of our guys toiletry bags (I bought them for $10 each at Winners which I think is the same as Kohls or TJ Maxx) and then filled them all with “day of” kind of stuff for them. Cologne samples, travel size hand lotion, body spray, deoderant etc. They all seemed to really like it and like getting a new toiletry bag!

@helenberrycrunch:I know Sparta! I just moved back to Illinois from Murfreesboro Tn about 2 yrs ago… These guys are from Indiana and are suprisingly UN-country! LoL

we’re still trying to decide too – a couple that FI has liked so far have been pocket knives for the outdoorsy and flashdrives for the nerdy (lol) Both would be personalized and useful – that seems to be the big thing with guys! I have a feeling that the globe might not be appreciated as much as your FI would if he got it 🙂
