Default Gift Ideas for Groomsmen and Best Man

I'm getting married in September and I'm looking to you guys for some groomsmen and best man gift ideas. I don't want to do the old cliche' gifts, like monogrammed cuff links or handkerchiefs.... All 3 are avid bow hunters and outdoorsmen. Your help is greatly appreciated!!

I got on overstock.com and bought some Swiss Army duffel bags and had them embroidered with their initials. It's been 8 years and everyone still uses.

I have got a n embroidered soft side gun case for being a groomsmen and really liked it.

I got my guys the coolers that are in the barn wood stands with the lids. They seemed to like it. A little big and bulky but something they would use often.

On the small side, Ive seen a couple places that have cuff links made from pistol brass. Looks pretty cool and you can get them in about any caliber.

Amen to that. I got married in a regular suit and my groomsmen just wore suits they already owned as well. My best man got an engraved knife and the other groomsmen got an engraved Zippo lighter.

Sure wish this was the thought for the 5 weddings I've been in. Instead, it's cost me $800 while the groom got the free tux. I would have been pleased if they would have made it my gift.


Instead, I decided to go with suits and buy them for the groomsmen. Now they have great looking tailored suits to wear multiple times in the future.

yeah since I'm a groomsmen in your wedding I have to agree with Landon on this one. I was looking forward to my gift, that's the only reason I said I would be in your wedding.
