I have five bridesmaids (of course one is a MOH) and one “man-maid”. I love him to pieces and can’t image him not being a part of my day. I’m giving the gals a hot pink canvas market tote and him a black one filled with goodies including champagne, custom soap and on, and on and on… the problem is, aside from the champagne I can’t seem to come up with ideas of what to give my man-maid. He’s not into sports or typical guy stuff (if you catch my drift) and I’m at a loss. Any ideas?

Um … monogrammed shot/whiskey/pint glasses. A utili-key – sounds stupid, but I use mine all the time. Something related to one of his interests – does he like to cook? Perhaps a cookbook. Does he work out? Maybe a subscription to Men’s Health. Basically, try to consider what you’d give him as a birthday present, and go from there.

I’m giving my fiance’s groomsmen all matching shotglass/flask sets, each with their names engraved…other ideas would be his favourite candy, and a t-shirt. Hope that helps! 🙂

I gave my bridesman a pack of fancy pants mens toiletries which came in a bag he could travel with. He also got a bottle of local schnapps (they all got that, but I got him a bigger bottle). If I’d wanted to give him more I probably would have included a book as he loves to read, or a gift card. We paid for his suit hire which included shirt and tie.

The greatest gift of all would be to call him something besides a man-maid! 🙂

I got my son (who was my dude of honor) and my daughter, who was Maid/Matron of Honor, both Swiss Army knives. They were both thrilled. I’ve got pictures of my son playing with his during the reception.
Oh, and mrbee, he chose his own title, which was (obviously) not man-maid.

@ mrbee and 2dbride – he loves the title “man-maid”… it’s simply funny! You’d have to have our sick sense of humor to understand. He’s gay so it’s a little fitting. HA
Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I like the men’s toiletry idea and of course booze are always a hit. Thanks!
