Bees- I’m shopping GM gifts and my son found some mideval swords online for his guys. I was going with the standard money clip or engraved harmonica. What are your thoughts about swords? Yes, I know it sounds strange, but I am thinking it could be kind of elegant if presented correctly.

I think it is kind of cool. . We are doing engraved Louiville Slugger bats for the GMs.
I got my FI a sword for a wedding gift. But I haven’t given it to him yet. The Best man is hiding it for me and he says that it is really cool. I guess it depends on the taste of the guys in your wedding party.

His guys are very fine young men who are for the most part, non-drinkers, non-smokers and chivalrous to the ladies. I think he envisions them as his “knights”- my only problem… how do you wrap a sword???
Oh, I know Carefully!

hrm… totally depends on the guys!
I know some who would think it was awesome, and others who would just think it weird and not know what to do with it.
How does your FI think they would respond?

I think that if the guys are into swords, it would be a very awesome gift. It would be unique enough that they would love it.
