We are struggling with groomsmen gift ideas. We have 5 to buy for: my brother, his brothers, and a few of his friends.
As a whole, they do not:
- Play Golf
- Like Sports
FI has also put the kibosh on the following:
- Money Clips
- Cuff Links
- Pocket Knives
He wants to come up with something trendy and cool. If we could afford, he would go with iPads (he actually suggested this…I was like, umm, no.). We are trying to keep around $50.
Ugh! Where do I go from here? Any ideas?

We are doing pocket watches… but I don’t know if that falls in your FI’s watches category!
I am really excited to get some cool pics of the boys and their pocket watches!

Sorry, I’ve got nothing. We did Swiss Army knives, but I see that’s on your already considered list.

My BF was in a wedding this weekend, and he got a nice shirt with a tie (not one of those sets, they were seperate)
You could also consider nice sumglasses, since you are having a summer wedding… or if they play videogames, you can get them points on a giftcard they can use for their game system…

how about a safety razor shaving kit like this…http://www.amazon.com/Colonel-black-chrome-SHAVING-Razor/dp/B001GHQTL0/ref=sr_1_32?ie=UTF8&s=hpc&qid=1280792129&sr=1-32
my fiance is totally into this kind of stuff and he sounds like your gm’s..not really into sports, smoking, etc.

what are they into? Also, the gifts don’t have to be the same thing. I was thinking that if you’re really stumped, you could get giftcards to stores they’ll like – so if you have a guy who’s really into his music, you could get a giftcard to a music store, or something. Are they nerdy types? What about a season of their favorite TV shows on DVD? Movie tickets? Or maybe a season of their favorite childhood cartoon?
Sorry I don’t have better ideas – guys can be so hard to buy for!

When in doubt, for guys (for anyone, really) check out http://www.thinkgeek.com
They have stuff in every price range possible from cheap (in price, not quality) to expensive. I’ve no idea what taste your guys have, but I’m sure you’ll find something really awesome and different there.
It’s a GREAT site and a lot of really great stuff WITH reviews of the products.
good luck finding the perfect thing!
oh, and we’re going with letter openers for everyone in the wedding party. a total of eight people tops.
