I don’t think it’s weird. You aren’t supposed to connect the gift to something they have to wear in the wedding anyway, then it’s not a gift.

Ugh siblings think they can get away with anything. That said, I kinda agree that you should get them something not associated with wedding even if its something as small as a cigar.

@mandb122: I wish my party would tell me what they wanted, it’d make it a whole lot easier! You did say you were connecting them, however, “ties and suit accessories because it’d be a uniform gift and it’d be nice.”

Unless you mean uniform as in you can get the same thing for everyone, which I would also say you should get something that is personal to each member of the party, rather than something generic. 🙂

My sister did that too. Part of the Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts are makeup brushes, and she told me she already had a set she liked and it was like….okay? I think siblings feel a wee bit entitled when it comes to gifts.

One of my BM’s told me she didn’t like what I got her. It was rude, but that’s just how some folks are I guess.

Hmmm. Well, look at it this way, would you rather your BIL have something he can appreciate or something that is just going to be stuck in a drawer?

If he has a ton of ties that are his style, it doesn’t seem a bad thing that he’s telling you he doesn’t need more?

@mandb122: My brother is like that, he’s a minimal guy. He travels alot, so everything he owns has to fit in his car. Maybe thats why I don’t find it weird?

@Belle2Be: I dont see how giving someone a tie (something they are wearing in the wedding) isnt a gift! The ties our groomsmen wore were $30 on sale or $60 not on sale. We would have loved to be able to give them as gifts and Im sure they would have appreciated not having to spend that money.

That’s weird. I mean if you had asked him what he would like it would be one thing, but for it to be a “ya I don’t want that get me this”, just kinda rude IMO.
