I am getting a personalised necklace and a spa certificate for all my girls. Planning to spend about 130 on each.
Fi has no clue what to get his guys.
He has 3 plus a junior. I am not worrying about the junior now but the Best Man and the two groomsmen.
They are not drinkers or smokers.
Can you please shoot out some ideas. Likely to stay in 150 budget each.
Few things I know: One likes photography, other likes Motocross (racing) and the other … i guess a bit of everything.
I have no clue

@Lulume: What about custom cufflinks?

@JessSeny: I suggested that and he said that they don’t wear them

get on etsy and search groomsmen gifts, maybe something will spark his interest? My finace did flask sets for his guys, but they are all drinkers. Good luck!

What about a pocket watch? Pretty awesome and something that’s useful/a keepsake.

i ordered each of the guys a shirt that they will like (all of them are different) got them ‘man soap’, personalized mugs (coffee), and gift certificates to the movies. it’s not super traditional but i know it’s something they’ll all like and def use.

@Lulume: If you are looking in the $150 range, you can definitely find a nice watch at Macy’s.
My FI got his GM Coach money clips and cufflinks but I just read that the GM won’t wear them. So maybe money clips would be a good idea.

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
We’re getting a carry on garment bag for one GM because he travels a lot for work. http://www.overstock.com/Luggage-Bags/Tribeca-Nylon-Tri-fold-Carry-on-Garment-Bag/3355766/product.html?searchidx=2
For our other GM we are getting him a valet for his watches, change, etc… http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=valet+box&SearchType=Header

@Lulume: my FI is getting his samurai swords. yupp. true story.
we didn’t want to get them something stereotypical, like tumblers, flasks, decanters, booze, etc. he wanted to get them something badass and out-of-the-box…then we stumbled upon this asian import store in the mall near where he went to law school with a whole wall of samurai swords in the budget.

also, i have a pin for a site called something like mangifts.com or something – PM me if you’d like the link and I’ll go hunt it down for you!
we thought about getting them a few different things from that site, including these monogrammed stadium chairs that have a cooler underneath the seat.

Thank you bees.

My husband got his guys these really nice Swiss army knives. The guys were all so excited.

Mont Blanc pens are always nice…everyone should have a good pen 🙂
Gift certs to the Grooming Lounge or the Art of Shaving are fun too-something most guys would never buy for themselves but really could change their looks
Leather bound classic book series if they’re readers
Classic RayBan Wayfarers (they can wear them in the wedding pictures-so fun but still very very practical and just around the price range!)
Gift certs to a round of golf, swing analysis, etc if they’re golfers
Good seats to a ball game they can all attend together if everyone’s local
I seriously love gifting!

@Lulume: if all of the men have different interests, i would suggest getting them different gifts. there’s no rule that they all need the same gift.
you want to get them something that they will use and enjoy. ask yourself what you would get them if it was their birthday. this is what i did.
my adult son stood up for me and at first i had a difficult time deciding what to get him. he wouldn’t wear cufflinks, he wouldn’t use a monogrammed pen, he wouldn’t use a pewter flask; the typical bp gifts for men. when i thought about gifts that he would like if it wasn’t for a wedding, the ideas were plentiful. he loves to cook. i got him a good set of steak knives and a good large covered skillet. he uses them all of the time and loves them so i knew i made the right choice. it’s so much better than a beer stein with my wedding date on it collecting dust in his cupboard.

@Lulume: Something personalized is nice. For the one who likes Motocross, a gift card to a store where he can buy some equipment would be good, unless your FI knows enough aobut it to buy the guy some.
Same deal for photography – maybe a gift card to a nice store, so he can put it away toward a lens or something? I know gift cards seem lame, but if they’re personalised like that, I think it’s ok, plus it’s better than getting them something they don’t want/don’t need/isn’t any good out of ignorance of their hobbies.
Other one… Everyone likes a nice bottle of wine, or beer, or whiskey or whatever.
