I was in a wedding last Saturday, and got a personalized flask. I filled that sucker up and sipped from it the whole night. It kept me cutting loose on the dance floor. Viva liquid courage!

I will be giving my guys one of these. They are under 30 dollars and I use mine almost everyday. It's something small enough, but yet functional enough to take it with you everywhere. Those fold out knives are cool, but have limited applications.

I got mine engraved Louisville Sluggers, had their name, our names and the date and everything. They were beautiful and I'm disappointed I didn't get one for myself. I don't recall exactly what I paid but I think it was somewhere around your $30 limit.

I gave my ushers booze - I gave my groomsmen cuff links (all different styles) - really nice ones from brooks brothers that I knew they'd never buy themselves.

I received a mini keg once. I enjoyed it

I like the flask idea as well. Received one of those too.

I got my groomsmen engraved Louisville Slugger baseball bats. Easy process on the LS website, quick shipping and they looked awesome. Cost was $45-50 each including shipping so a little more than you may want to pay, but for me it was totally worth it over yet another flask/mug to add to the collection. Even got one for myself in Black/Silver as the groom.

Highly recommended!

PM if you want more details.

I did the same thing (a couple posts above yours), but I didn't go through Louisville Slugger, I forget what website I went through. They were FAST too, only took like 10 days.

The last wedding I went to the groomsmen all received beer mugs with their names engraved, but the beer mugs were huge. They had to have held at least 40 oz. They poured their beer into them as soon as they got them and it looked like they had maybe 1-2 drinks in them, but it was atleast a bottle

As my Bros best man, I got a large MagLight engraved, which I keep in the truck. Cool, practical, something I use daily and something I wouldn't have bought myself.

Ive gotten Pocket Knifes, but those are shitty, Booze is always cool but you really need to make it special(splurge for expensive stuff but maybe smaller bottles)

Another friend did some books that catered to each groomsmans hobbies...well thought out and was more of a "I really wanted to show I value our friendship" gift

I gave my guys their Tie and a bottle opener that will mount to anything. There was a little tab to glue on a beer cap from their favorite beers. My wife found some cool little boxes from Hobby Lobby to package it all up.

Maglite's what a great idea. I have had my large one for ages and use it at least once a week if not more. I am sure someone has mentioned a pocket knife but its something they will use. Whether to open up something in the car from a store or cutting open a letter.

I did the same thing...dont remember them being that much though. Thought they were closer to $20.00. But that was also back in June of 1998. LOL!

My brother was just part of a wedding and got an Allen Edmonds game-used wallet. They are definitely pricey but I guess the guy wanted to get something super nice. They have MLB and NHL teams, I'm not sure where the guy got them but they only have a few examples on their site...

Allen Edmonds is now featuring Tokens & Icons Recycled Nostalgia

EDIT: This link shows all different pieces from their Tokens & Icons stuff

All of my groomsmen were big poker players/fans so I got them all custom clay poker chip sets with their favorite teams, beers, etc. on the chips. The company can do any image you send them...it was a big hit but I guess it only works for the right audience. Can't remember the price but think it was about $50 per set.
