Getting married in one month and have not purchased my groomsmen a gift. Do you guys have any suggestions? I was thinking about a Browning FTD knife (like the 615)- see [URL]www.browning.com/products/catalog/knives/fdt_knives.htm[/URL], but I'm open to anything. Thanx, Steve

I received an engraved money clip.

All of my groomsmen received a Leatherman "WAVE".

I got my groomsmen each a silver flask with their first and last initials on it. They loved it and I got them on ebay for cheap! CB

I have in my pocket a very nice gold money clip that I recieved for my troubles from a friend not so long ago. Sounds like you got a pretty good idea though.

How about a good pair of Oakley sunglasses,,, [url]http://oakley.com/product/eyewear/[/url] I recommend "M" frames. Jay [img]http://www.commspeed.net/jmurray/images/iroc-cop.gif[/img]

I gave the folding KISS knives to all my groomsmen and ushers.

It is a once in a life time event (or should be), let's give the obvious, AR 15's. (Glad I'm already married Hee Hee!)

Private lap dances at the strip club you end up at during the bachelor party.[sex]

About a billion years ago, I gave my groomsmen cigars with bullet style cutters & reproductions of ceremonial Japanese swords. The lapdances came much later...

Try the [url=http://www.pestdetour.com/rzap.htm]handheld bug zapper[/url]. It says it's human-safe, but I've never found anyone who will think about touching it a second time. Loads of fun.

I got mine the Columbia River KISS folder. They are very small and practical and not to expensive. Almost everyone I gave them to still carry them.
Link Posted: 4/2/2002 9:31:47 AM EDT
Damn, I'm in the same predicament. I'm getting hitched in less than two months and I don't know what to get my groomsmen either. I've got 6 of them, and $90 knives are too much for my small wallet. Now that $7 bug zapper might just be the ticket! lol

dont get mugs, I got like 10 of the bastards all different with my initials, buried somwhere in the back closet.

I always thought that a blow job from the bride was a nice touch. [bounce]

I gave Blackhawk Conceal Carry fanny packs.

I gave CRKT Mirage knives to my friends. My best man and I recieved the grey ghost, while the other guys got the standard mirage. I emailed about 8 different online knife sellers and told them I wanted to purchase 8 knives, so I was cut(no pun) a pretty good deal. Zippo lighters are also a great idea. Just make sure the best man's gift is just a tad nicer than the rest.

We bought 3 D cell maglight/2 AA mini mag combo packs for the men. The women got earings. The maids who were close friends with my wife stated that they would have rather had the maglights, and that the other women felt the same. We got the packs at Sam's Club a a lower price, which was nice.

Congradulations!! shot glasses with a paticular loggo that fits their personality? Outback Steakhouse gift certificates? The flask idea is also good.

Buck makes a small pocket knife that looks good with initials engraved on them. Not too expensive and every one needs a Sunday go to meeting knife. Hell buy them all a brick of .22's and a bottle of crown. (not to used at the same time of course[:)]

I just bought my Groomsmans gifts, im getting married on June 1st. Get the bestman a little extra. I got them all Zippo's with the name ingraved on them and got him a small Gerber pocket knife also. my .1/2 cents Riz

got married a year ago, my groomsmen got knives too. benchmade, i figured if it practical they would accually use it, and they do! kinifeoutlet.com has good prices [newbie]

Depends on the crowd, I suppose... Been in a couple of weddings where the groomsmen received knives. 1. Received a BEAUTIFUL Tiffany and Co. Swiss Army knife (made by Victorinox). Sterling silver, I believe. 2. Received a SwissChamp with my name professionally etched in the side. Came with a leather sheath, sharpening stone, and MagLite Solitaire. Own lots of knives, Leatherman tools, etc...but this knife is my favorite. Carry the latter every day I'm in uniform. First one's in a drawer some place.

Sorry, dmuldrew, but that is clearly not appropriate. He should try to give the groomsmen something they haven't already gotten before. [:P]

Congrats Steve. FWIW I think the knives are an excellent idea.

A set of cocktail glasses with the groomsmen's intials engraved on them. You and your new bride will be toasted many times. ARH
