Especially w/ regards to groomsmen gifts!
My BMs were soooo easy! I sat down w/ Fiance to look at Groomsmen gifts, but I hate them all! They seem so generic….I researched past posts and checked a bunch of websites but no such luck.
Any one have any unique ideas? Websites to check?
I have 6 guys to buy for:
1 is my brother, he is 25 – likes to party :o)
5 of the other guys are 29 y.o. – 31 y.o. – like to golf, drink beer (talk sh*t haha), they are all married or in serious relationships if this helps…..None of them work 9-5 office jobs, so any gifts like that would not be useful – they all work w/ their hands/outdoors.

This is what we got our groomsmen:
They were a huge hit! I even overheard a couple of them saying amoungst themselves that it was the best groomsman’s gift they’d even gotten or heard of. Made me quite happy to hear that! 🙂
I think the meat brands+gloves+storage rack were a little over $40 each and the glasses were about $25 each – so either would be pretty affordable options for you!

@peaches1038: I ordered them from here: http://www.barbecuebrandingirons.com/groomsmen_pkgs.htm
The company is called T-Bone Brands. They have discounts through their “groomsmen packages” program if you’re buying multiples too. We got the sets that come with gloves and a display board but they also have sets that come with a storage box.

We just gave gift certificates to the boys. One got one for golf, and the other his favorite steak restaurant.
What about a beer of the month club?

My Fiance is getting all the boys MLB baseball jerseys. He asked them who their favorite player was and then got the jersey for that team and player. We didn’t want to do the normal stuff that we always see because most of the guys have been GM’s a million times before and have all that stuff. We wanted something different that they could use after the wedding.

@Zinzerena: You are a woman after my own heart. I love ThinkGeek madly. They are the first online vendor I’ve met that shares my mad love for monkeys and caffeine!

We got them nice leather travel cases (toiletry) from leatherology. They all really liked them.

Instead of guessing what they want/need, why not just pay for their tux rental? Or at least pay for part of it…

I love all of the above ideas! We ended up getting the GMs black chucks (converse high tops). These are the shoes they will be wearing for the wedding, and many will wear them as a daily shoe afterwards!
We also got them personalized beer coolers (a 6 pack with a handle.. i’ve seen them in LTD Weddings catalogs).

Could the gift be a service instead? Like passes for all of them to go rock climbing/bowling/golfing together? I realize this might be a little too late…
