Ok I need some suggestions from other brides out there! Fiance and I are trying to figure out what to get for the groomsman. We have 7 Groomsmen and 1 Jr. Groomsmen. We are spending about $75 on each bridesmaid and want to spend about the same on the Groomsmen but we cant find any groomsman gifts that dont seem completely cheapo. Our guys are all into bar type stuff (except jr of course!) and are semi out doorsy. We understand that we might need to give the jr a different gift for age appropriateness but cant come up with anything for him either! HELP??!!

ScottSouth didn’t want to get any of the traditional stuff for his groomsment (flasks, bottle openers, etc.) and so we had to do some brainstorming. We finally decided on pint glasses with personalized etched glass designs. Each one has a dinosaur with the groomsman’s “dinosaurized” name underneath. Aaron became Tricaarontops. Mike became Pteromiketyl. Seth became Brontosethus…
We found someone on Etsy who could do each one for only $10 (!) so we ordered everything from her. We’re also just getting everyone their tie. I want to do something else for them, but ScottSouth isn’t worried about it.
If they all like bar stuff, maybe get all of them a really nice shaker and a set of bar tools. Or go find some other bar gadget they’d enjoy. I think it’s totally fine to get the junior groomsman something completely different. Maybe his big present should be something different, but all the male attendants can also receive some small item that’s the same.

Fiance wants to do flasks/mugs and pocket knives and I think those ideas are great but I worry that they will feel kinda cheated if we spend wayyy more on the girls than them. Granted the girls do wayyy more for the wedding but hey I wouldnt want them having to realize that lol. We will probably end up doing some sort of combo of that but I dont know what to do for my Jr Groomsmen and for our ushers. Jr will be 12 and we have 4 ushers.

We got our groomsmen this 6-bottle beer carrier: https://www.etsy.com/listing/119244526/beer-carrier-perfect-gift-for-birthdays. They were all big craft beer lovers so it was a great (and reasonable) gift for them! We personlized each one with beers that reminded us of them and then they had a gift they could use again! We also had them put a wall mount bottle opener on the end so it was really awesome!

We are buying his two groomsmen suits for the wedding instead of asking them to rent. Hopefully that will suffice as a gift since they can use the suit after the event!
