gifts for my groomsmen?

I'm getting married Nov 1st and I'm struggling to come up with something to give my groomsmen for standin up. I don't want to do the typical flask or anything like that. I need some help, any ideas?

Mike

Do a search, this has been discussed many times.

I bought my groomsman/woman an engraved Leatherman.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I gave mine golf putters with their names engraved on them. They were more for display than for playing.

Take Care and ride safe,
Brian

I guess the big question is how much do you want to spend for each groomsman?

The only other thing besides the usual I have ever received is smith and wesson flash light, nothing fency but quite practical. I will be interested in hearing some of the suggestions as I will have the same dilema next June.

Congrats and good luck,

Greg

Xbox 360's with a Live Memebership, there are 199$ and like 40$ for the membership so you can stay in contact when you get married and lose the entire world, because you got a wife.

Go with a good knife with initials engraved on it. Give them something they can use and not be put away and forgotten about.

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

What are you getting the best man? He usually gets something special. When I was a best man I got a nice watch.

i got my best man the same gift that I got the groomsmen. I did what Chills did, I did laser etched leatherman's. I also got them for the ushers and fathers as well. I got myself one to and use it regularly.

shot glass set
flashlight - this was mentioned already
leatherman
if everybody is into football, you could get them Bears jersey's with there names on the back
xbox 360's @ $200 a pop is a little on the pricey side (especially if you have to get 6 or 7 of them) but if you have that kind of coin to throw around, it's not a bad idea.

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

I have received a variation of a cup both times I have stood up. First was a beer stein with my name on it (quite nice looking actually), the second was a set of lager glasses.

I stood up in my friend's wedding a while back and everyone (even the ushers) got money clips with our initials engraved on them.
