FI and I were talking the other day, and we got on the topic of gifts for his GMs. He has no idea what to get them. I suggested these cool tie clips that I found on Etsy, but then I thought, who the hell needs a tie clip? I asked him what he’s gotten as GM gifts in the past, and he said the only wedding he got a gift in was his brother’s, and he doesn’t even remember what it was (he also got a pair of cheap sandals, a bucket, and a cheap koozie from his cousin, but the sandals were for him to wear for the wedding.
I know our GMs don’t want another flask/beer mug/knife/etc., so what other awesome gifts do people do?

@vorpalette: We have a small wedding party, with only 1 groomsmen (FI’s brother), so we’re giving him Omaha steaks since he’s a foodie.

@vorpalette: I feel the same way what is a unique gift I haven’t found one different from what you have already mentined but I was thinkig of creating something to each one’s likeness or personality or what’s going on in htere lives, so each gift would be different. I going to get a box and inside it place multiple small gifts something like a gag gift. In one box since I know one of the GM will have a new baby around the time of the wedding, place items that represent him being a new father but still intended for saying thank you, such as a dad diaper changing apron with tool belt. This is only my thought process of doing something unique and different and something for them to remember and laugh at later on.

How about personalised cuff links?
I got my FI’s littler brother a pair of Batman cufflinks (it’s his favourite movie of all time- he’s 12!), one of his other brothers enjoys lifting weights so I got him superman cufflinks, another groomsman is obsessed with music so I got him these cute disc jockey cufflinks.

We got our four groomsmen each a nice black leather Coach wallet (factory outlet sale) that we’re taking to get monogrammed with each of their initials. FI’s father gave the same gift to his groomsmen over 30 years ago and claimed that his best friend used the wallet until it fell apart and duct tape was no longer a viable solution, so we took a page out of his book.
other ideas we were contemplating were tickets to a game or event that they could all go to together.

We got them each this rustic beer carrier from Etsy filled with their fav craft beers and then for our best man, we added a year membership to a beer of the month club. It was great and matched the rustic feel of our wedding. https://www.etsy.com/listing/119244526/beer-carrier-perfect-gift-for-birthdays
