I already got my girls their earrings for the wedding as a gift. I have 3 BMs and 1jrBM (10yrs old). We have no idea what to get the guys! Same 3 Groomsmen and 1jrGM (8yrs old).
1. What else should I get the girls besides a nice card to go with it?
2. What on earth should we get the guys? I suggested beer mugs but he shot that down right away. He wants to go with the swiss army knife.
What do you ladies think?

They are his groomsmen. He should buy whatever he wants to give them.

@BullsFan43: My husband purchased pocket knives for his groomsmen at Men’s Wearhouse and had their name engraved on them. I think they were 30 bucks each. Everyone seemed to really like them.

@BullsFan43: Your FH should pick out the groomsmen’s gifts. He’ll probably know what to get them better than you since they’re his friends.
As for your bridesmaids, only you can really know what to get them. I think it should be something they personally will like and use again. I say this because while generic gifts like ‘survival packs’ and photo frames are always politely received, they’re generally nothing to get excited about.
Maybe you could ask each Bridesmaid or Best Man what her favourite makeup or skin care brand is and get each girl a gift pack of them. For the junior Bridesmaid or Best Man you could get her a pretty little purse and put some pretty hair slides and lipgloss inside it.
Of you do feel really strongly about getting them a group gift Kate Spade has some really cute stuff. I’d be thrilled to get something out of there as a bm gift.

we’re doing pocket watches for the guys, which they will be wearing for the ceremony and can keep for years to come.
girls are always so hard to do! my bestie did a tote with our first initial on them and then the jewelry for the day of.
i got a family friend to knit wraps for the girls, i found $5 personalized wire hangers that i’m doing with their names(for picture purposes but also for them to keep) and the jewelry. I feel like I need to do something else for them because it’s a destination wedding but i just dont know what

@BullsFan43: I dont think earrings for your wedding counts as a gift. It helps tie into YOUR vision for YOUR day. I’m buying all my bridesmaids’ jewelry and paying over $100 per face for makeup but I dont count that as gifts. I would still get them something that they each like.
For the groomsman your Fiance should be thinking of what to get them since he is a man and (I assume) knows them best.
I always think it should be similar to birthday gifts and catered to each person.
