My fiance received a cool “branding iron” from being in a friends wedding.  It has his initials and he can brand his steaks, or whatever he is grilling.

My FIs groomsmen are all outdoors-y types.  So he got them a knife, a compass & a flashlight.  Wasn’t able to get them engraved though, thats the only thing he’s bummed about.

I think my FI is getting his groomsmen the 2G USB flash drives from Things Remembered as one of their gifts, they are on a keychain, can be engraved on both sides and are silver plated. They are also all early – mid 30’s.

I think FI is going to get his GM Fossil watches.  We’ve been in a lot of weddings as well and didn’t want to do an alchol-focused gift.  We will probably add a six pack of their favorite beer, or their favorite liquor, to have the morning of the wedding, but that won’t be the main focus of the gift.

My FH got a sort-of typical gift for his guys – a Swiss Army knife – but he got one that has a flash drive in it. I’m pretty sure it’s this one: http://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-SwissMemory-Storage-Device-Translucent/dp/B0002VM8ZM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1276186296&sr=8-2

The flash drive is on the small side (won’t be able to use it for movies, or their entire music collection or anything like that), but it’s enough that they’ll be able to use it for photos and documents.

We got Flip Video camcorders for the groomsmen (and the bridesmaids too actually!).  We figure they will use them at the wedding itself to take some video clips, but they can also use them a ton after the wedding.  Our wedding party are all also in their early 30’s, and they are settling down — i.e. they have pets, kids, nieces, nephews, etc that they will want to video in the near future.

What about taking them all to see a sports game or concert together with their tickets as their gifts?

We are considering good chef’s knives.  The shun ken onion series is really nice looking.

@ Skibobrown:  I love that idea!  I would so love it if I got a flip video!

The hubby and I got the GM’s G-Shock watches!  All his boys are the athletic type so they loved them and they weren’t too expensive.  We purchased them @ Costco which is probably why they were affordable.

I think my FI is also going to get his groomsmen meat branding irons with their initials – its a very manly thing – lol!  We also got our entire bridal party glasses (white wine for the girls and pilsner for the guys) made by an ETSY seller handpainted with their name, their likeness, etc and we’re going to have them all displayed at the head table.
