GM gifts

Need ideas for FI of what he can get the guys. What are you guys getting?  We're trying to think of things beyond the typical flask, etc.  And yes, I've already suggested to FI to customize each gift....*sigh* apparently that's too much to think about?? Sorry, mini rant there.

    I found these a while ago and thought it was a cool idea but only if they would actually wear them!

    "Flip" like video camera--H didn't like the Fip's quality, found at better one at the same price point but I have no clue what it was (you'd know better anyway)

    Omg, so piggybacking this one.  Remember how similar our FIs are?  Yeah, mine needs help too.

    Carissa - That is pretty doggone cool!  But knowing a couple of the guys I doubt they'd wear them.

    Melissa - I like the Flip idea.  I had thought about it so we'll see.

    Jenny - too annoying! I KNEW this was going to happen!  Told him a while ago to start thinking about things and now as he sees I've gotten stuff for my girls he goes "Well what should I get the guys?"  How the heck should I know!??

    One of the GM is super into comic books etc so we will do something along those lines.  Another is into old movies and his ex stole them all so we will replace some.  The BM....haven't a clue.  To make matter's worse.....FI doesn't understand the idea of attendant gifts so he is no help whatsoever.

    we had this problem too...H wanted something original..but hated every idea out there. about 1.5 wks before the wedding, i ordered them flasks..cause otherwise they were gettin' nothing. i had H buy a bottle of whisky so they can ceremonial-y fill them up while getting ready...but H forgot, and sent his BM to do it the day of the wedding. =P

    I know it's not very original, but what about Swiss Army knives?  My H uses his all the time!

    My FI, his brother and my brothers (not doing a WP, but if we were) would all love a bottle of their favorite liquor and maybe a fancy cigar.  Or a gift cert for a nice steak.
