    Looking for some ideas for my groomsmen. Besides the stuff you can get from a gift store that you can get pretty much anything engraved ie flask, das boot, cigar case, etc.

    This. I went to the St. Paul Beer Festival on Sunday, a good pack of beer would be awesome. I say try the guys at the Four Firkens... they support ZipTie and really know their stuff.

    EDIT: I see you are from Canada... Four Firkens might be tough, but the idea is solid.

    Reef sandles with beer bottle opener on the bottom. Who doesn't want that?

    hmm... good idea i think ill write them the letter as for the beer one of the guys cant drink, not much for rare beers here since we make tons, have some unique micro breweries and can get beers from around the globe c:

    I brought all of my groomsmen to a Vikings game; much better gift than some stupid flask that will collect dust in some random kitchen cabinet, imho.

    Leatherman tools are always handy. Or an engraved Zippo for the smokers.

    we gave all them a colemans bag chair with there initials painted on the back of the back rest.

    Beer koozies are always cool "to have and to hold and keep your beer cold" is a fun saying to put on them

    my brother in law had a winter wedding and wanted everyone to buy carhart winter gear.... but my sister is dumb and said no.

    LOL, or a fire extinguisher.




    Something they'll actually use would be nice. Grilling stuff is always good, unless they aren't really men.

    I would have been happy with a case of shop towels.

    Last wedding I was in I received a celtic warrior sword (he's super irish). Pretty cool, but what the hell am I doing to do with the thing?

    I went to the Love Dr. off of University and Snelling.... I picked up the cheapest, worst Adult Videos I could find. Then I spent like $30 on individual gifts for them too....

    Oakley Sunglasses can be engraved. If you would like something like that let me know and I can get you Oakley customs for a good deal.

    that would be funny just give them a blank tape that reads "BONER JAMS 03" like on 40yr old virgin.

    I might do the cuff links idea. Thanks guys keep them coming. I would post this on my local forums but they troll those ones.

    Give them something that will last a long time...not something consumable. Maybe a nice LED tactical flashlight. It will last them a lifetime and they will think of you every time they use it. Or a nude pic of the bride.

    Trip to Vegas, forget physical gifts, and forget everything that happens while your there, if I got a trip to Vegas I would probably remember that much longer than a dumb flask, engraved anything, etc... Doesn't even have to be plane tickets, just rent a big ass truck or RV and be spontaneous.
