    I am finding it very easy to find affordable, cute, useful items for women but am stumped on the men.

    Suggestions I've had but not crazy about.....

    Beach towels
    Booze (I know I can't go wrong with this)

    I need a REALLY great idea!!!

      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
        Waterproof wallet
        Beer koozie
        Bottle opener

        Just to name a few. Hope this helps.

          I guess it depends on what are you giving the girls.

          t-shirt with a funny logo
          hat with some kind of sports logo

            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.
