ok, so i have another question.  Groomsmen gifts!  What should I get
'em??  i've got 11 groomsmen, and i'm not rich.  i'm thinking $20
each.  the kicker though, is to not get something so common like an
engraved moneyclip or shave gel and cologne.  guys don't really need
anything, but i at least want it to be somewhat thoughtful and a bit
unique.  any ideas???  thanks!  Bob Leoni

Hello Bob,

Are all the groomsmen sharing a common interest? Grew up together? Can
you give us any information like that so we can better prepare you an

no, their only common interest is that they're all men, who are all
good friends of mine.  ;-)  they did, however, all grow up in the
chicago area, but not close to one another persay.  thanks for
thinking about it!!!  Bob :-)

Hello Leoni1234-ga,

I have found 2 gifts in your price range that I think would be unique.

A personalized beer mug with their name and the date, which you could
add a bottle of beer along with for the reception or your time with
the boys before the wedding.  

You could also do an engraved Yo-yo as a gift though it is about 2.49
more per person than the 20.00 you mentioned.

Can't go wrong with knives, flasks, or zippo style lighters.

My brother got married 4 years ago and gave out mini leatherman's
engraved with the person?s name.  I don't think they were leatherman
brand, but something similar.  A search for Mini Leatherman should
lead you to where these can be purchased (My bro got his at
Sportmart).  I think he got them for around $19 each.  Everyone in his
wedding party still carries/uses the tool all the time.

If you go this route - I would recommend getting the plain silver
ones, as the color/painted ones seemed to fade/chip over time.

dear sir,
If you're still looking for groomsmen gifts, check the CASIO Watches at
Walmart or SuperWalmart stores. In my opinion, CASIO watches in the $20-$30
price range are a very solid value. They are very functionsl, durable, and

As a groomsman I was given a shotglass with an engraved silver outershell.

But look at this:  personalized playing cards, photo, text - could
even include the names of all the groomsmen, bridesmaids,  you two,
too of course:

There are several links, have to check the final price calculations. 
I was enthused about one  - until I saw the set-up price.

Best wishes, Myoarin

thanks guys!!  wow this google thing's really great!!

actually, i dunno what made me think of this, but personal ideas for
each of the groomsmen all popped into my head.  i've found some really
nice stuff, like, for one of my groomsmen who's a beatles fan, i
ordered him a framed beatles poster, and cigars for my cigar-smoking
friend, golf balls for the golfers, on and on...
so it's all workin out!  thank you all!!  bob leoni :-)
