I am bumping for bridesmaid gifts as I have vera bags at the moment and would like to put something in them. For guys though, I gave my BF (at the time – now fiance) a carabiner (?? Those latch things you use for mountain climbing) watch. Like this: http://www.geekalerts.com/carabiner-with-watch-and-led-flashlight/

He fished and could not bring his expensive watches, so this gave him a way to keep track of time. I got him a water proof one.

I brought everyone their favourite perfume/cologne to wear on the day (and to keep of course so that whenever they smelt it it reminded them of our wedding) and a gift voucher for their favourite store To spend as they desire.

@OzRusticBride:  I agree that a nice perfume would make a great gift– Im not big on keepsakes because I dont like things Ill never use again.

Depending on the age and type of groomsmen, Penzeys spices makes some great 3 peice spice sets… these are awesome, quality spices that anyone who likes to cook/grill will appreciate. You can couple them will a small bottle of alcohol, some fun dress socks/tie, and candy in a gift basket.

@Horseradish – That’s a great idea.

I bought my BM a hanger with their name written in wire and made them all duct tape purses.  I kinda want to get something else……not sure what.

The groomsmen will recieve a flask/cigar case (super cool) with their monogram on them.

@Ready4TheKnot:  I’m trying to figure out gifts, too. I’m paying for their hair and make-up to be professionally done.  Given all the effort they are putting into my day, along with paying for hotels as they come from another city, I would like to give them something special.  I think I will just need to think of each of them individually rather than give them all the same thing. I like the suggestion from another bee – think of it like buying them a birthday gift 🙂

@Ready4TheKnot:  

                  I left the guys to my fiance, he bought them cuff links that have their favourite sports team logo on it. With a box to put them in and the cuff links themselves it pretty much worked out to being the same as my gift to the girls.

I got my girls the following (they all said they wanted the same thing):
Wristlet – to use at the wedding but can also be used after for a night out if they want 
Bracelet – something they can wear again if they want
Lip gloss – something they can use on or after the wedding
Body lotion – from bath and body works and I picked the same scent (fiance talked me out of bubble bath which I wish he didn’t but ah well)
The individual packages of Strawberry scented Kleenex -some are more emotional than others so wanted to make sure they had something just in case)  

I want to do more just not sure what, and if anything that would fit my budget. I have 6 girls and he has 6 guys so I’d love to do more but things have added up quickly!!

My favorite was when I got a necklace I’d been wanting and this really cute clutch in basic color that I love but didn’t have. That bride bought as if for my bday And I’m trying to do the same.

I’m getting each an assortment of things she’d definitely want out of: jewelry, massage, yoga class certificate, pottery class certificate, and gift cert to yarn/fabric store.

@Toronto2014 As requested! 

The pink and white one is the same, the stripe is on the back.  I made a few more but I haven’t had a chance to take any more pics.  The orange one is for my BM that is a Browns fan.
