I've heard of cigars, but in this "stop smoking campaign" our world is in, I am not sure how it would go. I don't think any guys on his side smoke, but my family enjoys their cigars. This is a good question, I'll be sure to keep checking for more suggestions.

I think you can still do kind of generic things.

How bout:

 

Axe body spray

Flip flops

Cigars/lighters

Waterproof wallet

Beer koozie

Bottle opener

 

Just to name a few. Hope this helps.

I like the cigar idea -- depending on if your guys like them. We are stuck with this too - we are giving mugs/bags as favors, so we can't give that to them. I was thinking engraved beer steins or something!!

 

I would love to hear what you are getting your girls -- I am SO stuck.

Thanks ladies for all your suggestions. For the girls, I am giving pashmina's as the main gift.

I think most of the OOT bag will mostly be used/liked by the women:

1. The bag itself (Jute - very cute)

2. Starfish bookmark

3. Personalized mugs (I know the guys will like these too)

 

I have thought of the bottle opener idea and the cigar thing. Our guys would like cigars. There are some guys that I'm not sure about. Maybe I could do cigars for the one's we know like them and then do bottle openers for the others.

I found some starfish bottle openers that I love, but do you think that would be too "girly" for the guys?

See......women are easy!!! :)

One idea is something to throw around. We were in Cancun a few years ago with a group of friends and the guys mentioned a few times that they wished they had brought a football or something. I think I saw some of those foam ones at Dollar Tree!

Thanks for all of the ideas ladies. I like the football idea.......

 

The best pricing for the starfish bottle opener's is on e-bay. They will sell in any amount you want, you just need to e-mail them. I attached the link. I haven't worked with them yet so I can't speak to the service or quality but this is probably where I will purchase.

    • 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?
