We got our groomsmen each a 3 month subsription to a beer of the month club, and they love it! We bought their tie and matching socks, but I’m not sure that really counts as a gift since they had to wear them.

We got married In Hawaii, and we also purchased them Reef sandals.

@Nickig_4:  I think we’ll go with Steam gift cards.  If you don’t play videogames or have a FI who does, it’s a place to digitally download most any computer game.  All of FI’s groomsmen play games and I can’t think of anything else they’d actually like to get.  I wanted to do cutesy cufflinks but the ones I liked were $20-30 and I know that’d sit in a drawer.  I’ll do something small but sentimental too.

Bumping! Not sure what we’ll get our groomsmen since they’ll range in ages from 13 to 30 (all FI’s brothers)

We have comissioned ceramics from an artist/friend.  The bridesmaids are getting vases, the groomsmen are getting covered boxes that they can use to collect wallet/keys/change on their dressers.  They might even turn out large enough to hold remote controls on a coffee table.

My husbands friends are BIG eaters and love meat lol.  They have all gone to the Brazilian stea house chain , Fogo De Chao and had a great time .  We bought all of the guys gift cards to cover the cost of their meals along w a pretty cool custom stein to keep for memory sake.  They loved it and it will give them an excuse to keep together

@Nickig_4:  I’m trying to get personalized gifgir for each of them.  My best man is a government scientist, and PM Harper has muzzled them quite extraordinarily the last few years, so I’m getting him a t-shirt that says “ask me about work.”

What are the guys like?  My fiance was thinking of doing personalized swiss army pocket knives.  They’re all outdoorsy kind of people so we’re thinking something like that might be nice.  I’ve also heard of grooms giving very practical gifts such as gas gift cards or paying the deposit on their suits or something like that.

there was only 1 guy, other than my dh, in the bp.  my son.  he loves to cook and grill so we got him a really nice set of steak knives and a large covered skillet.  he loved them.  just the other day he told me how much he uses that skillet. 

it’s so much better to get the bp something that they will actually enjoy and use rather than a monogrammed flask or beer mug.

i didn’t think wedding related when it came to the gifts.  i just thought, “what would i get so-and-so if it was christmas or their bday?”

My fiance got a gift card for the Richard Petty racing experience. He got to drive a race car. He thinks that was the best groomsman gift ever. The groom who gave it to him got them on a groupon
