It’s not creative, but I teach teenagers and know that an iTunes or amazon gift card is alway a hit.  

Are you getting cuff links for the GM? You could get them for the ushers too.

Gift cards from iTunes, Amazon, Starbucks.  Video games.  iPod speakers or docking station.  Personalized iPad case.   Marshmallow Gun.  A watch.

@Saccebers:  Cufflinks will definitely make them feel grown up.  What are they wearing?

@Saccebers:  what would you normally give them as a gift??  that’s how i would think of it.  they would appreciate the gift more than a monogrammed money clip or something wedding typical.

my son stood up for me and i just thought of it this way and came up with tons of great ideas for him.  he loves to cook so i got him a great set of steak knives and a large covered skillet.  he loved them.

@Glasgowbound:  

I really like the cufflinks and cologne ideas. Add to that possibly a tie clip or money clip? 

I’m trying to think of “big guy” presents. 

Handkerchiefs with their initials embroidered on them?

@Everdeen: All of those are viable ideas.  Cologne might not be good – they probably aren’t allowed to wear it at school, or to school events (dances) or they might even discover they are allergic/sensitive to it.  But, on the other hand, it is certainly grown up.

Best Buy gift cards are also good.

@Everdeen:  I would say no to the hankerchiefs. But the other ones are good.

@harperlynn:  If the men are getting handkerchiefs, the boys should get them as well.  Even if they don’t really want them, they won’t want to be treated differently.

@harperlynn:  Yeah, I know that my SO would like them but not a lot of guys would. Cufflinks etc are more universal.

@Duncan:  Ehh I am still going to have disagree on the hankerchiefs. Every child is different so these kids might appreciate them. But I have a 13 year old brother and my sister is 16 with a basically live in boyfriend. I am going to have to guess that neither of them would want hankerchiefs. I think the would appreciate everything else plus a gift card. Rather then something they are going to loose/throw away.

But like I said every kid is different.

I can ask them if that helps the OP.

@harperlynn:  It doesn’t really matter if they like them, if the adults are getting them.  If the adults get a hankerchief, and the boys don’t, they boys will want them.  They probably don’t want the hankerchief, but if they are excluded from them, they will suddenly want them.  If the men aren’t getting hankerchiefs then, no, I don’t think it makes any sense to give them to the boys.

@Everdeen:  Yeah I think my FI would also love a hankerchief but other than him I can’t think of a single guy that would. But really everything else sounds great! I just think young boys would really appreciate gift cards. 

 

@Duncan:  It does matter if they like them. They are teenage boys. I don’t think any boys are going to want a hankerchief even if the adults do get them. They are teenagers not young children. They are kind of over the copying phase of development. 

And truly in that case, then the OP should get them the alcohol related presents too, right? Or no because it’s not age apropriate – like a hankerchief wouldn’t be age apropriate…

Like I said it’s just my opinion, don’t get your panties in a twist about it.
