DH gave his guys home brewing kits; he went into a little higher price range and got them the kits with a ton of equipment, but there’s plenty of choices right around $40 on Amazon that might be a nice gift. If you choose this, you mihgt want to have a friend who has done home brewing have a look at what is in the kit before you buy, so you can be sure that the kit has everything you need to get started.

We are struggling with this too.  FI is thinking of getting his men cufflinks but can’t seem to find affordable ones (the ones he likes are more than $100 for each set).  We went to Things Remembered at the mall last weekend but were not impressed with what they had on display.  Even the ladies’ accessories there looked cheap and cheesy.  We did find some on Etsy that were nice and seemed affordable but are still trying to nail down that perfect gift that all his men will love and re-use.  I’m interested in seeing what other Bees’ ideas are for groomsmen gifts!

My husband got the guys really nice Swiss Army knives. They were a great prices and the guys LOVED them. You know how guys are with tools/gadgets/things like that. 😉

Nice bottles of liquor, like scotch, for example.

Do they all like a certain TV show?  I’m just thinking Mad Men = Canadian Club.

Nice gym bags

What’s your cultural background?  Is there something that yo ucould give them?  My friend got the traditional clothing that he wore as a groomsman, as gift.

Ties

Decanters

Engraved metal collar stays

whiskey stones

beef jerkey sets

grill charms

hot sauce

“cult classic” dvd, popcorn and beer

There’s a few ideas in this one: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-need-groomsmen-gift-ideas 

 

…sorry, not trying to make alcoholics out of everyone, those are just the ideas coming to mind!

We’re trying to figure this out, too. They’re all married except one. Two of them brew their own beer already. No one wears cufflinks, plays golf, or drinks hard liquor. They’ve all been groomsmen before, so I’m sure they have enough flasks (though like I said, they’re really all beer drinkers) and engraved glasses to tide them over. None of them smoke. They all have a million bottle openers. We cannot afford tickets for any sort of sporting event they’d go to (which isn’t much). We’re thinking engraved multi-tools, mostly because I love mine.

We’re buying their ties, but I can’t think of anything else. I do like @pigzfly‘s movie + popcorn + beer idea, though!

Hi Ladies, Here is another idea for you…. My and my fiance make hand-painted glasses personalized to your liking!! We specialize in sports teams and we can also create glasses using your wedding colors, add a “thank you” verse inside the glass, add bling, bows, etc. However you want!! Check us out – http://www.OneChelleOfAMug.com  Promise they will be amazed when they receive their gift!

Leathermans or some sort of multi-tool.

What are their hobbies?  You could do camping equipment, sports equipment, stuff for a BBQ or tailgating, books, etc. – the gifts don’t have to match.

There are a lot of clever “tailgating coolers” out there; some have ipod docks and speakers, some have a small grill built in, there’s one that is built into a folding stadium-type chair.  Google around and see if there’s something in your price range; even if the guys are not big tailgating fans, everyone likes going to parties and outdoor music venues (at least the ones that allow coolers) and bringing their food and drink.

The presents don’t all have to match!!! Or have anything to do with being a groomsman. Maybe a bottle of nice bourbon for the cocktail afficionati. A tie (not for the wedding) for the guy that likes to dress really well. A Dr. Who T shirt for the British TV nerd. A board game. Cooking lessons. Tickets to the movies.

I, personally, like individualized presents that they are more likely to actually enjoy. And I don’t think most guys really care about anything that is engraved or has their name on it.

We got our groomsmen Coach toiletry bags, a bottle of their signature cologne, and filled it with day of essentials (mini emergency kit, i guess) and a bottle of whatever their drink of choice is…… omit the cologne and booze and it was around the $70.00 mark, a little over your range, but doable!
