I like the cufflink idea (assuming he uses them).  I’m sure etsy has some very cool bike related cufflinks.  Our (female) priest officiated, so I made her a Pandora-style bracelet (charms from Etsy) with a letter listing the significance of each charm.  She really liked it 🙂

@iloverocks:  our friend officiated, and we gave him a cool trout-themed flask (he loves to fish) and a nice bottle of his favorite whiskey.

Your ideas sound good, as long as you think he’d actually use the tie & cufflinks.  If not, there are a ton of cool bicycle-themed home decor, clothes, tools, etc etc on Etsy…

I gifted our officiant a $250 Amex giftcard.  Not much help – sorry. 🙂 

He had never mentioned a “price” but I didn’t feel right not giving him anything so I asked around and that seemed like a good amount.

You could give him a gift card to an online bike shop like PerformanceBike.com or support local and pick a local bike shop for a GC (maybe ask him where is his favorite).  I would not do cufflinks or a tie unless he needs to dress in a suit for work daily.  Then throw in a flask or a glass with a bike on it!
