Barbara writes, "Hey Outblush! I'm getting married in a few months and my man & I are struggling to think of cool groomsmen gifts. Everyone tends to suggest monogrammed flasks or, uh, cash. I hope we can be more creative and than this so they know we appreciate them. So far we have found tacky/lame ideas or superbly awesome ideas (thanks, Uncrate.com!) which are out of our budget (less than $100 per GM). Can you think of any groomsman-worthy ideas?? Thanks!"
Barbara, we contemplated suggesting this, but decided it would be tacky. Instead, here are a selection of six gifts for your groomsmen. Hope one of them is just right - and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
2 - Air Ribs Gift Certificates ($25-100) - Air ribs. Geniune Texas BBQ in a box. Need we say more?
3 - Macanudo Claybourne Cafe Cigars ($81 for a 25-ct box, on sale) - These premium cigars are hand-rolled in the Dominican Republic and promise a "passionate, mild, aromatic, easy to draw smoking experience." Perfect for a guy's night in.
4 - Ole Henriksen Men's Set ($70) - This "Damn, he looks good!" toiletries kit includes Natural Hair Wash, On the Go Cleanser, Sheer Transformation Moisturizer, & Walnut Complexion Scrub, all in suitably manly packaging.
5 - Big Daddy Driver ($44) - This seemingly innocuous novelty driver club opens up to reveal a weed whacker, so they won't ever be stuck in a weed trap again. Fore!
6 - Con2our Dual Point Hammock Chair ($105) - Cliched, but true: Guys love hammocks. This one comes with adjustable footrests, armrests, pillow, and the all-important drink holder.
