The hubs bought his groomsmen Red Rider Bee Bee Guns (anniversary edition) each engraved with their initials.  I thought it was stupid, but their wives told me they loved them!

Um, my fiance and his groomsmen all play the online video game World of Warcraft, so he’s gifting them valuable items from the game. Like armor for their characters to wear or game currency. What can I say? They’re total nerds. And I know they will love their ‘gifts’

My Fiance plans to buy each of his boys an engraved cigar holder,cutter and a cigar.

The flip flops is a great idea!

We got them really nice ties ($50 ties, not crappy ones) and put down $50 towards their tuxes. They told us how awesome this was of us to do, how unnecessary, and how much they appreciated it.

They are getting coolers with their names monogrammed and a 6 pack to go along with them.

We are only having a Best Man, who is my fiances brother. He’s unemployed right now so I think we are going to help pay for his suit and tie.

If you like the cooler idea, why not pair it with some Jones soda or another non-alcoholic beverage they enjoy? I think personal is always nice.

I think we are gifting them the wedding ties as of now, Fiance has yet to fully decide who his Groomsmen are so we’ll figure out gifts later.

Coolers are a really cool idea!  All of our guys drink, except for the junior groomsman, so this may not help you either.  We made them glasses etched with their last names (it turned out really cool, and not as difficult as we started to make it, PM me if you want instructions), a t-shirt for each guy with a different thing on it from cafe press, a bottle opener (not sure if we’ll give this to the Jr) and beer that we made ourselves since we are homebrewers.  We are making root beer for all the kids there and will give the Jr a couple of root beers.

I think for the non-drinkers you could still do coolers, they can carry sodas and lunches, or glasses, my guy got a gift card to best buy recently.   Guys tend to be easier to shop for (in my opinion) because they don’t buy stuff for themselves as much.  Just try to personalize it – if they like sports, get them a jersey or sweatshirt of their favorite team; if they play golf, get them a bunch of balls and club covers; if they like to read, a first edition of a book by some author…

We stole this idea from what someone did for their bridal party, but my fiance is thinking of getting his groomsmen custom baseball jerseys for each of their favorite teams.  DEFINITELY expensive though.

I like the cigar and cutter idea!  Maybe we can add a bottle of liquor to that too!
