I think there was a post about this in the past, but I am having trouble locating it. If anyone can find it, please post a link. Otherwise, please chime in with any cool ideas for groomsmen gifts. A buddy is getting married in a few weeks and is looking for good ideas. Cost will certainly be an object, but this post is for ideas regardless of cost. Thanks,

Carl III

Is he looking for practicale or showy?

I gave out nice travel bags from Lands End with their initials, my best friend gave out mini Leathermen, and another friend gave out initialed silver money clips.

For the one wedding I was in, besides my own, I got a Cross pen and pencil set.

How about a beer stein engraved with their names on it. I got one a while back and still use it.
I agree, a good friend of mine gave these out, imported from germany. Excellent gift.

I received a engraved Beetle desk clock when I attended my sisters wedding. I suggest give them something they can use.

Yeah I got the same at two different weddings. The one I was a groomsman and the other the best man. The only difference was that when I was the best man I recieved a gold set and the other guys a silver set.

Thanks gang. We appreciate the ideas. The rehearsal dinner is going to be either at Denny's or Golden Corral depending on the wait. We were thinking of stuff like soap-on-a-rope or NASCAR action figures and of course a bottle of Jack, but your ideas sound a lot better. Hopefully, we won't have to bail the best man out of jail for the rehearsal and the wedding. He likes to fight a little too much. The bride is getting a case of cigarettes for each of her matrons and a pack of those girly cigarette holders. I think she's gonna do a personal t-shirt for each of them as well down at the make-your-own t-shirt place. Either way, thanks again for the ideas.

OK... I was just kidding, but I couldn't resist. The wedding is actually going to be on a Plantation in Baton Rouge, LA. It'll probably be a fairly high brow affair. I think beer-of-the-month or thinkgeek.com might be winners. The engraved stuff is ok, but only if they will actually use it.

Thanks again for the suggestions,

Carl III
