I’m not sure about the toiletry bags.. I know my guy personally just sticks all of his stuff in a duffel bag. I’ve bought him a few smaller type bags for things like cologne, hair gel, ect and they’ve never gotten used.

Everything else looks neat though. Maybe add a swiss army knife or something [if they don’t already have them, of course].

cestvrai:  I like this 🙂 We thought of something similar with the toiletry bags.  We (I think) have decided to get them all nice wallets since it’s something useable and a bunch of the guys actually had a conversation a while ago about how they all needed new ones!

I like your idea!   We are doing “the same but personalized” route for out GM too.  We are getting them each two rocks glasses with their intial, and their prefered mini bottle of alcohol.  I see nothing wrong with this, and think that the whole “You have to get them each something different that they would enjoy” route is completely silly and stinks of the pressurization of the wedding industry.  Most of our friends like similar things and have similar interest, otherwise they likely wouldn’t be our friends.

cestvrai:  I think it’s  cute idea. Even of they already have  toiletry bag, everyone can use a new one at some time or another, as they do get grungy.

I like the idea. I know my DH uses his toiletry bag all the time.

If it helps, we got our guys monogrammed travel/duffle bags – so somewhat similar – and they all use them.

  cestvrai:  Mr. S is pretty positive he’s getting his 4 guys personalized NFL shirts – the kind with your team’s logo on the front and name/number on the back, not a true jersey but close.  He’s getting them each their favorite team and their own names on the back.  And then I think personalized beer steins as well.  But that man card bottle opener is awesome – where did you find it?!  He would love to add that, I’m sure.

cestvrai:  We are going to do a monogrammed leather “catchall” for the guys.  FI thought about a variety of things but wasn’t too jazzed about anything, and then I showed him this and he made up his mind that this was the ticket.  He may add a little bottle of liquor or something to the gift too, but this is the main ‘personalized’ thing he’s doing.  I think they’re nice, and will be useful for the guys.  Apparently he agrees too, since that’s what he decided on!  We’re doing a three initial monogram.
