My fi would like your input on his groomsmen’s gifts. We’ve been going around and around and can’t decide. Could you please ask your fi’s which gift idea would be more appreciated? His $ range is $100-$150, though would prefer not to go as high as $150. Here are the ideas:
-Garmin GPS ($100 on Amazon)
-Power tool set/s – multiple possibilities, all Craftsman. One is only a power drill and flashlight, for $90, another has 3 tools and is about $130, the other is a set with a circle saw, drill, light, etc… 4 tools in that one.. for $150
-Nintendo DS and one game, unique to each groomsmen’s interests
– golf outing and engraved Louisville Slugger bat
– bottle of Crown Royal and engraved glass/es
Please help!! We can’t decide and my fi really wants it to be a gift that they really like because they’re all traveling and spending a lot of money to be in our wedding. Thanks so much!!

Those are all really great ideas. What about instead of getting them all the same thing you get each guy what he would enjoy the most? Groomsmen gifts certainly don’t have to match!

I agree with caitlanc. These are all wonderful options, and I would personalize the gift according to each groomsman. If I were a bridesmaid I would love to receive a gift that the bride thought I would personally like more than a one-size-fits all gift.

I would guess that most folks already have the basic power tools. (I know I do!) I think you’ve come up with lots of good ideas, and any of these would be really really cool!

Thanks everyone! We actually came up with an entirely different idea today that hopefully we’ll stick with. Thanks for all the advice though!

What did you decide upon?

We have a list of a top 10 groomsmen gifts on our website that was created by guys aged 23-30. It is geared towards Minnesota groomsmen, but still applicable. Our number 1 was an iPod Shuffle. Everyone has an iPod, but this is relatively inexpense, engravable and nice to use for working out. You can check out the other 9 at twincitiesreceptions.com.

I’ve been wanting a GPS forever, so I know I would love to receive one – and I’m not even a guy!
