    This is what we've talked about before and what we're thinking we'd like to do. I don't really want to do a full on destination wedding but she hasn't ruled that out yet so it's an option too

    If we're talking about weddings, what is everyone's favorite groomsmen gift that they have received? Most threads on the topic are from 2010, and now that I'm in my 30s a lot of those replies aren't relevant. Best groomsman gift I've received were AirPods, but I have an absurd amount of groomsmen (to match my BFF) and that's more than I'd like to spend.

    I'm currently thinking engraved cufflinks for each of them.

    Do something functional/useful rather than occasion-specific imo.
    I like the cooler idea.

    The most useful groomsmen gifts I’ve gotten are a nice gym bag. He got it monogrammed, which is a nice touch.

    Also an engraved double walled/ insulated water bottle. Cuff links are always nice too.

    I, too, like the cooler idea, but one of my groomsmen did that for the groomsmen gift at his wedding. It's probably the longest lasting and most useful groomsmen gift I've received.

    Is your BFF (or you) crafty? I use my wife’s Cricut to make vinyl wraps/decals for stuff. You could get items then customize that way.

    Im partial to the gift I just gave my 7 groomsman. Posted about it earlier somewhere on tmb...maybe the tydefan leather thread, idk.

    I gave them each a GC to a leathersmith which happens to be local to me.
    I know that different people have different wallet preferences so instead of picking out a specific wallet, I gave them the $$ amount equal to a wallet and said pick one or get a leather accessory that you like.

    I gave my groomsmen a framed printing of a historic gameday program for their favorite college team. Here's the link, but unfortunately it looks like this guy ran into licensing issues as only a handful seem to be available for sale now. Everyone liked it though, and I thought it was cool and different.

    All my gifts were personalized. I didn't do like a set of things. Two guys got customized flasks, one got a decanter set, one got books, and my brother got a machete (he's a surveyor).

    Pro tip for all of you...

    If you’re going to present a “development guidelines” class and part of it is “always use Arial font”...

    Make sure you’re using Arial and not Calibri in the doc you’re currently presenting

    best gifts I've received align with what others have said:

    canvas cooler engraved with initials

    gym bag with initials

    cocktail glasses with intials (noticing a trend? haha)

    I'll add something different though, one really cool gift my cousin got us was a .50 cal bullet bottle opener.

    These guys were on shark tank and support US troops so even has a feel good effect - https://bottlebreacher.com/

    Pretty cool piece to keep on my bar, and they have all types of designs
