    Hi Ladies,

     

    My FI is the last of his friends to get married so we are trying to think of ideas for groomsman gifts that aren't your traditional gifts:) Any help ? Thx

      How much are you looking to spend? I know my fiance is really excited to make a custom bobble head of his best friend as a gift... They're kinda pricey, but we're just having 1 attendant, so it's ok. They're really funny and I'm sure any guy would get a kick out of them. But, that's just me.... (:

        Oh my gosh that is such a good idea. How fun! We have 8 guys standing... I know it's crazy but we have a large family and friends we couldnt leave out. I will look into pricing:) Thank You!

          We have 5 guys standing and 5 girls, I am hoping to buy each member of the bridal party a pair of oakleys, since I will be buying 12 pairs in total the store said they will give me a good deal, so I am hoping to spend apx 130.00 per person also I thought it will be nice having all the guys with black glasses and all the girls with white :)

            We got our guys pocket watches off etsy, they are gorgeous, unique and a timeless piece that can be passed down to their children one day,  their sneakers, PF Flyers, and we purchased their shirts and ties (custom made off etsy).  We only have 2 groomsmen so we were able to spoil them a little.  Guys tend to really like watches too!  My fiance loves getting watches when he stands in a wedding! lol

                We are buying the groomsmen each a suit that they will be wearing and a really nice pair of leather sandals.

                  We are buying them the mini video recorders for about $150, but we are only having 2 guys, I don't think I would do that for 8.  Maybe your FI could plan a deep sea fishing excursion with them while you are there?

                    We are buying our 1 groomsmen a camera lens he has been coveting. Our resort is very picturesque and him being fancy-camera-happy can only be ggod for us ;)

                      That's a nice idea :)
                      You don't see a lot of pocket watches anymore, what a classic idea!
