    I'm getting married in a couple weeks and still need to pick out groomsmen gifts. I need some ideas here, SportsJournalists.com. What did you give for your groomsmen gifts and/or what was the best one you've received?

    I'll have to look up the name of the place, because I had the wrong name, but they make an engraved box for guys to place their watch, rings, keys etc... I gave it out at my wedding and my groomsmen and ushers have all told me it's one of the best groomsmen gifts they've ever gotten.

    Best one I've gotten was a humidor with my initials engraved on it.

    At my sister's wedding, I was pissed when my she bought all the groomsmen nice, engraved watches and gave me a nameplate for my work desk that I've never used. I love watches and the ones she bought the other guys were gorgeous.

    Since my groomsmen were guys I played ball with, I got them all 34" Rawlings bats with their name, number, and the wedding date burned into the barrel. Went over pretty well I think.
  7. I've gotten a variety of things from flasks to cufflinks to shoes.

    In a wedding a couple of weeks ago, my buddy got us each a pair of Roos that matched our tuxes and we then were instructed to change into before the reception. It was a cool idea and it spared our feet some pain that night.

    I did the same thing. Bats from the local wooden bat company with their names engraved. I got each usher (I had a bunch of them. I'm either very popular or unable to make a decision) a book that I picked out personally. Mostly sports or rock related.

    Discover paid for it all. Very generous company.

    Best was an engraved flask. I still have it. I also kept the tuxedo from the last wedding I was in and I was the best man. It wasn't so much a gift as I just kept it.

    Coolest gift I ever received was an autographed baseball by Reggie Jackson. The bride and groom went out and bought different things for each person.
    It's always a good idea to make it personal, something that means something, and/or something they will use.
