Hey guys,

I'm getting married in about 3 months, and, cutting right to the chase, I have 6 groomsmen and 2 dads who I have no clue what to get as gifts. Each have varied personalities: some like beer, and my dad and best man are in on my homebrewing adventure, but some don't. Some like music, but some don't. Some like sports, some don't. Some like video games, some don't. My brother is a nihilist (for all intents and purposes) and likes nothing.

So the question becomes twofold: Do you think it is feasible to try and get everyone the same thing/type of thing?

And personalities aside, what sort of cool/interesting/unique gifts would you like or have seen?

Flask is my personal favorite. Always classy.

Just get everyone the same thing. I got a great Gerber lock blade as a groomsman - thought that was a pretty cool gift. A flask would also be cool, but don't get all cheesy and have it engraved with crap about the wedding.

EDIT: Dammit, two people beat me to saying, "flask."

I was thinking any engraving would be a monogram only

i got different gifts for my groomsment. cufflinks and different belt buckles. they all liked them.

I don't think there is anything wrong with tailoring the gift for the person if you want to spend the thought for each gift. Nothing wrong with getting the same gift either. It's your wedding, make your own rules.

Cheers.

I gave out engraved flasks for my wedding. Each was just engraved with that persons name or nickname. They were also each filled with that person favorite liquor.

i'll also add that I have received as a gift a pocket watch, which was/is cool as I love watches. Believe my initials were engraved on the back as well.

I considered this but knew some would like it some wouldn't. I would personally have liked to receive it.

I gave a bottle of Captain's Private Stock to each of my 4 Groomsmen. Everyone likes boos. And My friends don't know good stuff from moonshine. So the fact that it was Captain's and Private Stock was impressive to them Not that I know anything about Rum either so i felt good buying them the "Good Stuff".
