Groomsman gift ideas?

Ok as I close in on my wedding I'm trying to come up with a good gift idea for my groomsman. Anyone have any good suggestions or something unique they've seen/done before?

I dont want to go the flask route so rule that one out.

You can never have too many hookers though.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Lifetime subscription to Wedding magazines, why they be better of then you.

I received a digital camera that I still use, also flasks were good idea. Pen and card holder with initials will definetely be a nice touch if all of your groomsmen are professionals, however, if they are hands on guys that go for a universal tool or something like that.

Coolest gift I ever got as a groomsman was a Custom Made Hockey Jersey from Newcastle Beer (groom works for them) WAY cool!


You could do worse with Knives, and if your groomsmen are bikers, then something cool like custom gloves is a nice touch.


Warning: possible thread hijacking:
although custom-engraved butt plugs - with shocker logo, in pewter - would certainly be the talk of the town!

Chris,

Wow...I must've missed something. Congratulations!

Nonetheless, I was just in a wedding where the groom gave the groomsmen monogram cuff links and asked that we wear them in the wedding....a very nice touch. They were just simple square silver cuff links with our initials engraved in them. I can't imagine that they were too expensive (maybe $35 -$50/set)?

Give them each a certificate.... good for 1 Dinner a year on you.

On or about the anniversary of your batchelor party each year, take them all out to a Sports Bar for Burger, Beer and Bullshit.

Be a great way to stay in touch with your best friends for a long time and an annual event you will all cherish.


Celebrate Friendship !
