Gifts

we're paying for either an excursion or spa experience for everyone in the wedding party. i think experiences and memories are sometimes worth more than a gift, ya know?

 

we're also probably buying the guys' shirts and the girls' jewelry, if i can ever figure that stuff out, LOL!

I just found this website and thought it might be useful for people still looking for GM gifts.

Groomsmen Gifts | Best man Gifts | Quality Groomsman Gifts

 

I've never used it so I can't speak to the service but they have a cool option for sports fans. You can get a personalized, signed photo of favorite players. You just give them the first name, choose one of 3 sayings and they digitally autograph it.

 

Just thought is sounded kinda neat.

I have been given a few things from being in different parties, watches, flasks, mp3 players, etc. The problem is usually I have something better than what the gift is, so I never use it. The only thing I really got any use out of was cufflinks. A nice pair of cufflinks that they can all wear on the wedding day if they are dressed formal, and then use afterwards. You can do the engraved initials with that if you want to personalize them.

Now thats not a bad idea. You usually have all the guys wearing shades standing outside, at least now they can all look neat having the same ones on.

As a groomsman, I've received moneyclips, pocketwatches and bbq sets, but I thought the best idea was sports memorabilia that reminded the groom of me. He gave a piece of memorabilia to all of his groomsmen specific to their favorite team. He also told a story behind what made him think of giving us that piece of memorabilia. The personalized touch really stood out.

Since the guys are taking care of thier own attire and the travel for themselves, we are getting them nice watches - my FI is a watch-guy so it is fitting from him and great for the guys.

 

The girls were easier becuase I'm covering the cost of thier dresses, jewelery, shoes and the spa (hair and nails) the day of the wedding. So, I am not getting them a "gift" per se, but covering all expenses except travel.
