This is totally random, but we’re considering it for each groomsman…  stock. There are several websites, but here is one example http://www.oneshare.com/ We will decide on a price range and then buy a share in a company that is personalized to each guy ex- for the golfers/ Callaway or Nike.  They send you a certificate which we will frame… and throw in a pack of their favorite beer.  Who knows, maybe it will pay off well for one of them someday

Our groomsmen have very different tastes, so my Fiance couldn’t do anythign related to alcohol (a few don’t drink) or sports (varied interests) etc etc.  Eventually he decided to get everyone some nice Aviator sunglasses from SGH – that way they can wear them in some of the fun pre-wedding pics and if they don’t like them, they can return them for something they do like. 

 One other idea is you can give our personalized ipod’s – the shuffles start at $50….

We lucked out big time and found Kenneth Cole stainless watches at Burlington Coat Factory for $39.99!  We also found beautiful italian silk ties on ebay for $25 each which also eliminated the need to rent "ties"with their tux.  If you like the watch idea and don’t have a Burlington near you, try other off-price discount department stores like TJ Maxx or Filene’s.  Good luck and have fun planning!!!

Score for 1154lillonlocation! Thank you soooo much for the pub sign idea – I quickly dashed it off to my groom and low and behold – another check off the checklist.  I think they’re really unique and look awesome.  Affordable too!

My fiance came up with the totally awesome idea last night to get our guys each a rotary tool set and then an accompanying accessory set for the rotary tool.  I am not a big tool person, but this tool literally does EVERYTHING and we think that they’ll all really dig it.

We’ll also be giving them each books that are individualized to their tastes.

Im actually doing something very cheap but it means a lot to us…have you seen the Disney/Pixar movie “UP”?

He says we are the couple lol which is fairly accurate-Before the ceremony Im sending him a crush cap pin to wear on his suit….

we always tell each other adventure awaits =]

My fiance was given a personalized travel kit that  from one of his friends across the country when he was one of the groomsmen in their wedding party and he loves it, so since none of his groomsmen know about it he decided to get this as a groomsmen gift for all the guys in his wedding party.  Its a little more creative then the standard travel kit, he ended up buying it on http://www.GroovyGroomsmenGifts.com, its listed under top rated groomsmen gifts on their homepage.  

 

He wanted to get a creative groomsmen gift, so a few other ideas that he toyed around with were:

 

– Gift Certificate to make your own sneaker at Nike

– Portable Beer Pong Table

– A group carictature

 

Ultimately he decided that the travel kit would be the most practical and get the most use.  Hopefully this helps!

I forgot to mention, if you are looking for creative groomsmen gifts he found  this website had a lot of good ideas.  We loved the socks below as a funny groomsmen gift.
