Okay we have 4 groomsmen….
One is a sophisticated business manager
One is a car junkie
One is just an average guy who’s recently a new Daddy
One is my goofy best friend who is like one of the girls….not gay…just very in touch with his feminine side ; )
Soo….do we try to find something that we could give all of them (the same thing) Or, get each of them something different according to their own personal character?
I don’t want to spend too much…but I don’t want to look cheap. They are ALL traveling to our wedding from out of state and spending quite a bit to be there. We bought their pants for them, they paid for their shirts (which were only 35.00!!)
I’m done with my Bridesmaids, I think. I made them all bath baskets…filled with shower gels, lotions, a candle, bath salts, a towel, etc…. Is that goog enough??
If you’re bored and have a minute, please help!! I’m sooo lost.

We chose to get our guys that suited each of their personalities. We felt it was more personal that way.
Here is our list.
For the Guys
- Best man – fishing tackle box and fishing knife
- Officiant (also my son) iPhone dock with bells and whistles
- Bride’s escort (also my son) – art supplies
- Ring bearer/Jr. Groomsman – flip camcorder, SD card and batteries for flip camcorder, activity books, and a neon glow in the dark squishy ball
Each of the guys will also receive their handmade pocket squares and socks. And the over 21 guys are also getting liquor filled chocolates and a gift pack of Smirnoff flavored vodka.

@AshleyB: What did he get for those 3 weddings? Just so I know what the “norm” is….I would prefer to do something more unique.

Look at groomsmen.com if you want to personalize it, they have a wide variety of very affordable personalized gifts for different types of men. We got most of our groomsmen personalized engraved flasks, but the non-drinkers got personalized engraved pocketwatches. none cost over $35.
