Gifts for the guys???

Recommended Posts

Hey girls. I am making my BMs starfish necklaces. Swarovski crystals have starfish beads and also sand dollar beads. If you make jewelry then I would recommend it. The necklaces I am making will average to about $25 each with the crystals and nice silver hooks ect.


I am also trying to figure something out for a gift for them, the necklace just does not seem like enough when I have asked them to come so far for my wedding. My sister gave all of her girls cute coach coin purses that we all still use. I was thinking about going to the coach outlet to see if there is any cute bag I can find them. I would like to keep it under $150 though. I only have 3 BMs so I want to do something nice for them.


As for the guys, I am completely lost. I thought about watches but they all have several of them already. Again, it is our 3 brothers as the groomsmen and I want to do something nice. I thought about doing a fishing charter for them in Mexico but then that is a one day and it's done kind of gift, should it be something they can keep?

I got my girls spa wraps and Lodis clutches - I went a little overboard on them b/c they are doing so much for me.

And my FI got the guys leather bags (like work bags, not briefcases but ones they can take too and from work) from Cutter & Buck. They loved them

Oooh, I like the ideas of leather bags, the grill set & the chairs for the guys!


I'm getting a bunch of smaller things for the girls (clutch, jewelry, flip flops, spa wrap, etc) but for the guys we wanted to do one bigger thing (we're also buying their shirts). Right now we've been tossing around the ideas of a Kindle or maybe a small camcorder for 2 of the guys. The 3rd (my bro) needed a new computer cuz his died so FI built him one & we just sent it to him as our gift for being in the wedding. He was really excited about it & we were glad to give him something he needed.


Some other ideas - maybe an ipod nano or mp3 player if they don't have one?

Or maybe a camera? There are some good ones for around $150

Do the guys have any hobbies? If they like to fish would they want a really good fishing rod? (you could give it to them before so you wouldn't have to bring it).


Still not sure what we'll do for our parents though.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
