    So, I've got my wedding coming up, and I'm trying to pick out gifts for my groomsmen but having trouble doing so. I've got eight guys to buy for, so I'd like to keep it under $40 a piece. All I can find on the internet though is the same barware/corporate gifts/pocket watch stuff that's sold on EVERY website out there (try searching yourself and you'll see what I mean). Anybody seen, heard of, or come up with any cool ideas for groomsmen gifts that are more original than these? Any help would be appreciated.

    Buy em Transformers? No seriously, in the last wedding I stood up in, the groom gave us all knives. He went out of his way to find ones that fit our personalities and needs. In fact, he did a great job as I carry the one he gave me every day.

    William Sonoma has a bbq tool set that many guys would be into. I believe it's about that price.

    My wife and I did engraved Leatherman multi-tools. Everyone loved them.

    I've also seen engraved flasks and the standard fare.

    For one wedding, I wound up with a Remington electric razor.

    Yeah, my brother had bought little shot glasses and was going to get them engraved etc, but never did, so we didn't get a damn thing.

    I never thought of buying for the bridesgrooms or bridesmen.I only thought you had to buy something for the bride and groom.

    the last wedding I attend we got (drinking) glasses wth our names engraved in them (sand blasted type). Im not sure if these type of gift are common since I only been a groomsmen once.

    If it was me and since I draw probably give each one them a peice of my art that represted thier personallity. Some sort of abstract style art, something that u can hang that would go with any interio style of the house. Non of that flowers, bunnys, puppy dogs bullshit

    For my wedding, I found watches that each came with a pen and a pair of sunglasses. Found them at JC Penny's. Each set was different so none of my four guys got the same gift.

    I was a groomsman for my brothers wedding. He hands out his gifts and all the other guys are getting watches and stuff like that.

    He hands me mine and lo and behold it's a vintage Transformers lunchbox with thermos!

    Who needs a watch when you can display something you used to carry PBJ in 20 years ago!

    I got a nice leather wallet with my initials "seared" into the leather or whatever you call it at the wedding I was in. It was nice, I was impressed.

    It's tradition for the bride and groom to give gifts to their attendants. I think it's only fair to give a gift out of gratitude, as the couple asks so much in the way of time and money out of bridesmaids, groomsmen, ushers and others.

    Guests of the wedding are only assumed to bring gifts for the bride and groom.

    On topic, my friend got all his groomsmen t-shirts with our nicknames and a number from the Pistons' starting lineup, he also had a "wedding Finals" logo he designed himself on the front of the shirt. A great gift which I wear on the weekends when I'm relaxing at home.
