    I'm like half-way through my OOT bag buying and I've already gone crazy with buying too much stuff, but hey, that's half the fun. I still need to buy more though!!!!

    I really need some help finding something for the men. I know that I posted this before and I've searched through the other threads, but everything that I keep bringing up, Francis keeps veto'ing my ideas, and it's starting to piss me off. I first wanted hats for the men, but he didn't like that. Then it went to poker chips and playing cards- no go on that one. Tee shirts, no way. I offered golf balls and tees, but he says they are too heavy. Ugh, help ladies. My groom is being too much of a bride.

    do you mean a wall? I think the saying is I have hit a wall...sorry you will find it all, the girls on here are incredibly resourceful...and honestly if you don't get everything you want then no one but you will notice.

        What about shot glasses and personal key chains?? Men are hard to buy for.

          Haha, just shows how much I've hit the wall, I can't even get sayings right. LoL.

          We are throwing in koozies already. The keychains are a good idea though.

            When i saw "i hit a tree" i thought you had a car accident or something, thank god that wasn't the case. lol I always mess up sayings.

            a girl from canada had posted before that she found little travel kits for men at walmart. i think they had shave gels, razors, toothbrush, etc. maybe you could do something like that. Does your fi have any good ideas? how about an electronic travel game like solitaire or poker.

              Food is good.

              And those travel mugs that you freeze (so that people can get bigger drinks at the resort!)

                Are you doing individual bags or for couples? To be honest, guys don't care about getting stuff.. Matt has been in a few weddings and his gifts are either long gone or up in a cabinet. (mug with his initial, flask, etc)

                What about a few beach balls for at the pool or a squirt guns?

                Don't stress too much. Everyone was happy with a koozie.

                  Thanks so much. I am thinking that is what my fiance is attempting to get at as well, men don't care.

                  Congrats on the pregnancy.

                    I don't think men really care too much about stuff in the bags either. We did water guns and water bombs from OTC. The guys loved them!
                    We also did condoms for the single guys....if you have any of those.
                    Oh and thank god you didn't hit a tree! That's what I thought this thread was going to be about.
