    LOL...I dunno, when FI and I moved in together, he had so much weird stuff - an etched deer mirror, b&w's of half naked women professionally framed, eew... just not my style at all...

      I think your initial idea of sunglasses is the best.. Thats what we are doing. And I know your saying they aren't forever, but really, either is jewellry.. the girls most likely won't wear it forever, they will grow out of it, just like the guys will of the sunglasses.. Maybe thats just my opinion b/c I grow out of jewellry all the time!

      I really liked that decanter idea too! Lots of people say flasks, which makes me cringe and think of high school cause thats what i got my high school grad date, but the decanters would actually really last through all fazes (sp??) of their lives..

        we wound up going with Cross pens (they were about $150 each) and leather planner/journal things.

          We are buying each GM's suit and tie for the wedding. We got them nice suit that they will be able to wear again...and it saves them money by not having to pay for them themselves!

            I really like the decanters too. How about a monogramed money clip?

              Honestly, going back to your initial post, if your BM and GM's are really outdoorsy fishing/hunting loving guys, a personalized hunting knife would be a great idea. My step-father is a moose hunter and fisherman and he LOVES his knifes and keeps them forever...he has one from the early 70's when he first started hunting. The only thing would be that you can't bring it down to Cuba with you...don't know how well that would go through customs ya'know....

                We only have FI's brother to buy for, but he is the guy who has everything. I was thinking about a leather passport holder, and FI may just do an excursion or something with him in Mexico as a thank you.

                  We were anti the traditional ideas too - plus, everyone had already gotten all of those things from prior weddings.

                  In addition to help pay for their outfits, my DH got his 5 groomsmen Billabong board shorts for swimming - they all loved them. Maybe you could add some cool sunglasses or something too - they would be easy to transport.

                  Good luck - only a few months to go! : )

                    My FI just got a poker set that had my future last name on it - the ___'s. We're not big poker players (or really, at all), but hey it was something. The other gift he got for a different wedding was a Vineyard Vines tie (they had tuxes, this was just an extra thing). All the GM wear suits to work / their offices.
                    I think the board shorts are a really nice idea!

                      My FI was in a wedding last year, and he got an engraved BBQ tools set. It was really nice in a silver briefcase type thing...
