So of course, my girls are all finished (well at least purchased and paid for – waiting on my last Etsy order), but FH hasn’t even thought about his boys…I’m thinking of doing man buckets (galvanized bucket filled with “man” stuff). FH does NOT want to do personalized flasks, so does anyone have GM suggestions or ideas for the man buckets? I was thinking bottle opener, cigar, bottle of their fav liquor or nips, etc…any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Leathermans -we got these for my brothers and they use them all of the time.

@SagHarborBride: My FI got his GM cufflinks and money clips from Coach.
Another idea is to maybe get them each a bottle of liquor of something they like to driink ( I would pair this up with a gift in addition to this)
Maybe get them wallets? A guy can always use a new wallet!
If I think of anything else I will let you know! ( I am trying to go through all the ideas I gave FI

@RunsWithBears: Thanks that’s a great suggestion!
@Daizy914: I like the money clip or wallet idea! We’re definitely going with the buckets, I started ordering ones that match each of their personalities, just have to figure out the gifts.

- Wedding: September 2013 - Franklin Plaza
@SagHarborBride: Some idea for the “man bucket”: favorite liquor, engraved pint glass, awesome beer opener, cool tie and/or cufflinks, cigars, tickets to a sport event
My FI and all of his groomsmen ski together ALL of the time. He is getting them awesome ski socks that we both have and love (they’re padded and super comfy). He is giving them each a pair with a gift card for sports authority for when they need to tune their skiis for next year.

Everyone in our bridal party had been in enough weddings where they have had their fill of the typical monogrammed groomsman gifts, so we did BBQ branding iron’s with their initials. Besides golf, grilling is the only thing they all have in common.
