Default You guys have any ideas for Groomsmen gifts?

I'm getting married in March and need to think of a few ideas for the groomsmen's gifts. Most like sports so i figured that this is a good place to start a little brainstorming session with my brethren. Here are the "rules"

6 Groomsmen
3 ushers

Looking for fairly cheapish options. No more than 30ish.
Gifts will be given in front of family so PORN sadly, is not an option

Fellas and ladies if you are here, any ideas?

$25 gift cards to Applebees or some place like that would be cool.

I'd go with a nice money clip w/ a team logo or something. Cheaper than a flask.

This is exactly what I was thinking - last wedding I was in we each got a different bottle of bourdon...and we were also given cigars. Those are doable for like $25/$30 (not the finest bourbon, but it'll do). Very cool.

When my brother got married this summer, each groomsman had a different colored vest/tie combo. Our gift was a pair of light gray (matched the tux) adidas gazelles with shoelaces to match the vest and tie. Wore them instead of shiny dress shoes, it was a real hit.

man this is a great thread, and thank you all for the well wishes! i also thought it was a good idea to start the thread because there are always some good stories or little jokes that are associated with weddings lol. its the elast little bit of fun we can have with the whole deal lol.

what are your guys thoughts on like a "brand" for steaks of a favoriote teams.
tervis tumblers?
grilling stuff?

what do u guys think about/what are your thoughts on getting the entire group the "same gift" with variations or different gifts all together?

Congratulations man! I got my groomsmen each a flask engraved with their initials. Or a bottle of alcohol is also good (as long as it's a reasonable price!)

I got my 2 groomsmen different things. I got one some real nice Golf Balls (the best Titleist ones out there), and the other guys some Ohio State stuff. My groomsmen weren't really the sentimental type or big drinkers, so I just bought them stuff they would enjoy.

(Haha)

I'd do a little giftbasket for each one -- practical + booze + food, but I tend to go over the top for presents.

Yeah, I was in a wedding in September and all the bridemaids were stealing swigs out of the groomsman's flasks.

I got married last July and got everyone an engraved mug with their name, date, and groomsmen engraved on them. Cost me right around $30 a mug, they all seemed to like it. Hopes this helps.

One of my favorite gifts was engraved Zippos. A lot of great ideas in this thread.

No Straight Man could ever drink out of this glass.

I do like the engraved Cigar Holder or Flask Idea.
