We are thinking about getting our guys personalized branding irons and a beer bottle opener that you mount on the wall… my FI’s newphew is in the wedding party and he is 19. In addition to his age, he is being deployed in August to Afghanastan. I feel that a branding iron and bottle opener is kinda stupid for him. I doubt he grills to actually use the iron, and even though he’ll have a drink here and there, I don’t condone it. So getting him the bottle opener won’t work either. I don’t have a problem doing different gifts for him I just don’t know what! Any suggestions!

i don’t know him but you do. ask yourself this, if it was his birthday and you were buying him a gift, what would it be? these gifts don’t have to come from a wedding store or be “groomsman-like” at all. get him something he will like and use.
when we were considering gifts, we couldn’t imagine our guy appreciating a monogramed mug, or pen. he loves to cook and grill so we got him an expensive set of steak knives and a large saute pan from a kitchen store. he loved them.
