Groomsman Gifts

So I need to figure out a groomsman gift and I do not want to make it the same cheesy ass money clip or pen or flask. Those are over played and not useful in my opinion.

I was going to get everyone a SureFire G2 Flashlight with the nylon holster and then have peoples initials embroidered in the holster. Think that is cool?

http://www.surefire.com/maxexp/main....=0,0&strfnbr=6

Second question, anyone know someone who does embroidery?

Have you seen Ians taste in watches? He would have to win the lottery to make that work

Clearly the classy thing to do would be to rent out autobahn the morning of the weeding for a private trackday for all the groomsman, and your favorite website admin




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Leatherman is a great idea. I got a set of 4 highball glasses with my initials one time (and a bottle of basil haydens to break them in). The glasses get used quite a bit, and putting a bottle of everyone's favorite booze in with their glasses was a nice personal touch.

yes it does, you have a cheap friend. especially since bridesmaids have to buy the dress, groomsman only have to rent a tux.

interesting, at least I know that for when I get married 10 years from now She's not cheap, I just don't think she knew that either (plus they don't have a lot of money to begin with anyway)
