I’ve been having some fun with planning my bridesmaid gifts (recently posted a question that didn’t go very far, but that’s okay because I think I’m a good)! However, I’d also like to start thinking about groomsmen gifts. When I mentioned it to my fiance he appeared to have no idea where to start, so I think it would be good to give him some ideas. Most of his groomsmen don’t smoke in any way, shape or form so we won’t be gifting cigars. We are also looking to stay away from flasks. Any other ideas? Photos welcome!

i thought these were really neat and you can put their names on them – what guy doesnt need poker chips? haha
or some cooler chairs with their initials?

Mine is giving his guys Leatherman multi-tools. Fiance refused beer mugs and other stuff like that because he has a ton of non-matching personalized flasks and beer mugs from his times as a groomsman and said no one needs another. He hopes the guys will at least find these useful instead of putting them in a cabinet somewhere and forgetting they exist!

My hubs got his GMs Coach wallets (from the outlet) It was a huge hit because they were basic and they could actually use them!

@misspeanut: Not that our gifts have to be completely unique, but I agree with the personalized beer mugs.

All our groomsmen have some sort of geeky interest or movie they love, so we got them all cufflinks based on that. We’ll probably also be getting them each a small bottle of their favourite liquor.

Get something that fits their individual interests and hobbies. Are they into sports, camping, grilling, movies/music, etc?

Still deciding… but this is my inspiration:
I’m getting hi-wall boxes and crinkle cut paper and putting a nice slim wallet, a mini guy’s emergency tin from here:
Possibly a small bottle of alcohol, and maybe a tie (that they would wear on the wedding day).
I also thought it would be cute to do shave kits- like a real boars brush and shave soap:

I really like them cuff links, I might actually get that fom my Fiance for a christmas present. Some ideas my Fiance is: A mug, a flask, a knife thing, cuff links, a shaving kit, and a couple other little things. Maybe try getting them tools or something they are interested in (hockey, fishing, baseball, etc)

We got our gms personalized chucks from the converse website. We subtly made it our wedding colors since you can customize every inch of the shoe.

He ordered gym bags/ travel bags with their names on them. Very high quality and estically pleasing for a man.
