- Wedding: September 2009
Hi, hive. I need some help, pretty please!
I still have some time as the wedding is 3 months away, but I’m at a loss as to what to get our groomsmen. We have 3 – FI’s brother, my brother and a close friend to us both. They are ALL so different that a standard groomsmen gift just isn’t going to fit. I’d love some suggestions!
Here is the breakdown on the 3.
FI’s brother – best man, 23, never been in a wedding, single, works at Best Buy as an installer, thus loves electronics but with a discount he gets whatever he wants whenever he wants, not sporty – pretty stereotypical single 23 yr old guy
My brother – groomsman, 41, about to have his second baby, computer programer who loves mountain biking, volleyball and football. Dressesup for work, but I don’t think he’d ever wear cufflinks if we gave that gift. A real guy’s guy who loves his family, but plays sports and enjoys some beers on the weekends
Close friend – groomsman, 36, graphic designer and works in adversiting, recently (about 2 yrs ago) came out and is very metrosexual, into politics and not at all into sports.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. We’ve thought of bourbon since we’re in KY, cufflinks, knives, Louisville slugger baseball bats – some typical gifts and nothing seems to fit. We want to spend about $100 for each guy. Any ideas? I need a new set of thoughts on this because I’m worn out from thinking about it!
Thanks in advance ladies!!
