Check out the art of shaving’s website- they have shaving kits for $25, and you can get one free if you spend $100 (or at least, they run that promo pretty often), it works out to 5 for $100.

We are thinking about getting engragved beer steins for all the guys (all our guys love beer so it totally fits) and/or we are thinking about getting them all tuxedo shirts with their nicknames on the back (this could work for your non drinker guys) do you think they would like that?

We bought their ties for the wedding and Fiance is just planning on getting them gift cards to stores they like. We figured that’d go over better than a personalized gift.

the flip cam sounds pretty cool, but everyone will probably have it by next year…….

We are either getting them personalized coolers or personalized USB drives.

The coolers I think will be a good idea because even if they don’t drink, there are plenty of used for coolers at picnics, fishing or hunting. Still deciding on the USB’s (I think I saw them at Things Remembered) because there is one person (my brother) who might not use it. Or would lose it! I might do it for the jr. groomsmen though if we go with the coolers.

Do these guys have to dress up for work?  My fiance got engraved cufflinks that were nice.

My Fiance is getting each of his groomsmen something different but unique to them. His Best man is getting a really nice fishing real and will be engraved (he loves fishing), another is getting a really nice poker set and the top will be engraved(loves poker!) ect…. It didn’t take him long to think of the gifts either because he knew what each of them were in to and the price for most of them were kept under 75 dollars!

My FH got his groomsmen and the father engraved antique pocketwatches.  He found them all on ebay for about $30 each (unengraved) then had engraving done.  He is throwing in a bottle of liquor to each as well.  you could do teh cigar/cutter (awesome idea) the pocketwatches (most guys dont have a use, but my dad said he felt kinda badass having one lol)

oh, and my Fiance is getting a stainless shaving kit for a wedding we’re in the week before ours.  He is pretty pumped to get it.

We got their ties, and we got the best man a monogrammed zippo. FI’s brothers are getting small gift cards. To be honest, they haven’t done squat for the wedding, unlike my bridesmaids, so the gift is basically thanking them for their participation.

My DH bought all his groomsmen custom Cooperstown baseball bats with their names, title (Groomsman, Best Man, etc) and the wedding date on them.

We picked up Capcatcher Bottle Openers for the guys from

http://www.capcatchers.com

They came out really well, I think its something that the guys will actually be able to use instead of getting tucked away in a sock drawer like a lot of other typical groomsmen gifts.

Fi liked them so much he got one for us. it has our names and wedding date on it. he better not forget our anniversary now!

I’d recommend them to anyone looking for a cool unique present for the guys.

Fiance received a really nice cast iron tea pot and two cups the last time he was a groomsman. I don’t know what the other guys got, but they were all unique to the guys. It worked because Fiance isn’t really a big alcohol drinker (or wasn’t at the time) but was a HUGE green tea drinker. 😉

We just talked yesterday about what we’d get for his groomsmen this time around, but no decisions have been reached yet. In fact, no good ideas have even come up yet!

I love personalized zippo lighters as gifts.  Even if they don’t smoke… every guy likes a lighter!
