    I have it pretty easy - I'm going to buy my girls a piece of jewelry (there's only 3). We are having a tough time though on something for the guys (3 again). The tradition groomsmen gifts would not really work here (cufflinks - they aren't wearing suits, flasks - done too many times with the rest of the weddings they have been in) - so what are some unique gifts  for the guys that work for destination weddings?

      I got these for our 3 guys.  I think its unique and you can make personal.  We just wrote "thank you for being part of our special day with the date"  I'll let you know how they go over next month.

        Hi Jenn,

        My fiance and I also had a tough time figuring out what to get the groomsmen. My husband was the last of their group to get married, so many of the traditional ideas had already been done.

        The four of them have been friends for almost 20 years, so he ended up giving them each a digital picture frame.  To give it more of a personal touch he had scanned a number of photos of them all throughout the years and saved it to flash drives that he also included with the picture frames.

        We also didn't want to do the traditional gifts for the GM.  We have decided that we are going to buy them flip cameras.  That way they will be able to use them on their trip.

            Hey JayKay,

            We had that on our list as well. It's a great idea! BTW - did you know that if you go to the Flip website you can add a logo to customize it? We were thinking of doing that before my FI decided on the digital picture frames.

                Thanks for the ideas.  We are currently trying to figure this out ourselves!
