We are having the hardest time figuring out what to get the groomsmen for gifts. My fiance mentioned flasks. However, out of the three groomsmen, one doesn’t drink and the other is an alcoholic… so I don’t feel that is the wisest gift choice.
Does anyone have any ideas? What did you get your groomsmen? Would an etched beer mug be ok, since they can use this for non-alcoholic beverages as well?

Why not get them more personalized gifts instead? You dont have to get them all the same thing.

DH got his groomsmen personalized keychain bottle openers and pocket knives. I don’t know which knives they were exactly, but this is the kind of style they were: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90661956/set-of-6-personalized-engraved-rosewood?ref=shop_home_feat

One of my family members got his wedding party personalized hunting knives. (Of course, they all hunt, so you know, if they don’t, that would be stupid. Haha.) but I guess the point I’m making is – is there anything that ALL of them like? If so, centre the gift around that.

FI got his groomsmen engraved beer mugs also…but there is one gm who is in recovery so FI is going to get him a specialty root beer in addition. The others will get beer of their choice.

We gave our groomsmen collapsible duffle bags with a nice toiletry bag and LED flashlights. We wanted to steer clear of alcohol themed gifts too 🙂

We’re steering away from alcohol-themed gifts as well. We’re getting our guys hats and probably a gift card to a local restaurant.

We are doing this:
monogrammed travel toiletry bag: http://www.gunthergifts.com/mehatobag.html
Jack Black travel set: http://www.sephora.com/first-class-five-gift-set-P251306
engraved Leatherman micra: http://www.gunthergifts.com/lemifr28.html
and a bottle of scotch.
I wanted to do personalized gifts like I did with the girls, but my fiance never helped me out with it so I just had to kind of unilaterally make the decisions… I could have gotten a really good individual gift for my brother, but I don’t know my fiance’s friends quite that well.
