    FI is having the same issue for his guys. He is thinking about personalized ball caps from the guys favorite teams and also golf shirts or something? Its up to him but i know he hasnt figured it out lately.
    If your FI did want to go the impractical route, I dont think there is anything wrong with taking a picture of it and just including it in a card. And then they get it when they get home. Its not like they would use those things while they were at your weddinga nyways.

      we are having a hard time with this as well! I agree with Nadine...if it is too hard to bring it down either send it early in the mail, or take a picture to bring down with you.

      I'm giving all my bridesmaids their gifts early as I have 10 and it will be impossible to bring all the stuff down with us.

      Anyway, one gift we though of was a Flip Mino Camcorder...have you seen those? they are little pocket sized camcorders and you can get them for under $100 for the 30 minute versions..FI likes electronics and gadgets so this may be a good option for his guys.

          Fun Ideas - I like the mini camcorder, golf shirts and surf shorts!

          i am keeping those all in mind, we were also considering an engraved bottle of johnny walker scotch.

            I've always liked the Men's Toiletry Bag as a gift for GMs, here's the link:

              I was able to get a really good deal on Oakley sunglasses, so we got our GMs a pair each. They were the basic version (black frames with gray lenses.) Also got hardshell cases. I guess it totally depends on finances. My brother got his GM's iPod Nano's when they first came out in 2005. Im sure he dropped a pretty penny on those :)

                Thanks Nadine and Megan :) - yeah they have them on amazon - I think they are the lowest cost there.

                  For our BMs and GMs we are doing a beach bag filled with stuff they can use for their trip and giving it to them before we leave. The guys are getting a backpack with a pair of ray-ban aviators, reef dram sandals, and a crew product travel kit.

                    OOooo... I really like the idea of swim shorts and sunglasses or the picture thing. The last wedding FI was in every guy got a bottle of their favorite alcohol along with a gift cert to somehwere that they liked. Every guy got something different and you could tell the groom really put some thought into it. Gift certs were great because everyone was traveling. Some examples were Captain Morgan w/ Oakley card, gin w/ golf course card, wine w/ wine bar card. There were 8 GMs so if you have fewer you could do something more personal than a gift card from the store.

                      Oh, I might have to look into that camcorder Jess! great idea and good price!
                      We were going to get the boys Rayban sunglasses - my FI wanted to do that - these boys are so into their sunglasses, then they could have them in Mexico and take pics with them. But when we went to look at them, I didn't think they looked that great on my FI - so we are trying to think of something else.
