Help! I can’t figure out what to get them! Our three groomsmen are FI’s brother and my 2 brothers. Their ages are 30, 22, and 20. One is in AA, so I don’t want to do the whole engraved beer mug/bottle opener thing. I have Things Remembered catalogs, etc, but the stuff seems almost useless to a 20 y/o. except the zippo lighters (if you know what I mean), but do I want to contribute to that??

We’re giving our guys fedoras that will go with our wedding colors (either black or ivory or white). They can wear them for pictures and at the reception!

My FI hated all the engraved stuff so he got them all different player’s football jerseys (Redskins, of course 😉 They’re all into football so they’ll love it. When I searched actual groomsmen gifts online I found them all to be useless to our guys (no offense to anyone). I don’t know what to tell you people I don’t know these guys but think about what they like, or what they’re interested in and go from there. I don’t think you have to go with the typical groomsmen gifts! Hope this helps a little.

How about tickets to a professional sporting event? They could all go as a group (your fiance – or husband at that time!, his brother, and your two brothers). Plus, this can be tailored to your gift budget.
Maybe pick a big game – like when a favorite team is in town, or a big rivalry game.

I think my FI will do the jersey thing too, but he was recently a Best Man in a wedding, and the groomsmen all recieved refurbished GPS units. We were all amazed! The groom had spent time looking each day for a good price, and purchased them all when the price came down to what he wanted to spend, and I know the refurbished ones are obviously not as expensive as the new ones. The guys all loved them!

We were thinking of a sporting event (well I was…I hadn’t mentioned it to FI yet!) but we are from Boston where it is next to impossible to get tickets to any games! I just realized they are all into golf. Has anyone ordered from GroomStand.com? I am wondering about the quality.
