    The best groomsmen gifts

    I'm sure people have gotten some pretty cool groomsmen gifts at a wedding before. I'm one of 9 groomsmen for my friend's wedding tomorrow and at the rehearsal brunch today he gave all us groomsmen our gift. We all received a tactical pouch that housed a Gerber 06 Tanto automatic knife and a Surefire 6P LED Defender. I wasn't expecting anything and would have been totally happy with the traditional money-clip or flask... but how cool of a groomsmen gift was this little tactical package??? AWESOME!!!

    He is the best! Unfortunately... I imagine the Gerber is 100% illegal in CO due to both blade length AND because it is auto. =(

    I'm not 100% sure on the law there (in CO)... but autos can not only NOT be carried... they can't technically even be owned even in the house can they?

    Sounds like a good friend. Yeah, I wish I had the money when I got married to spend on the boys, but for my wedding I found some imitation samurai swords. They were pretty cheap, but real steel. We had a lot of fun in the parking lot that night, and I'm pretty sure my mom was freaking out that one of us was going to lose a finger or something.

    At my brother's wedding, he gave all the groomsmen a heavy shot glass with pewter on the front with our names inscribed in them. We also all got a shot bottle of Southern Comfort and all toasted at the rehearsal dinner. It was very cool and i use the shot glass every weekend.

    Shot glasses & samurai swords... both awesome gifts.

    At a birthday party for a friend of ours... they went and got about 40 or 50 miniature bottles of liquor and stuffed them inside a pinata and had a couple of people take whacks at it with a samurai sword. Uh... not the brightest idea... but sure beat the hell out of candy. hehe

    I opened this thread thinking you were looking for suggestions... at the front of my mind was "a nice knife or flashlight." Imagine my surprise when you received BOTH!

    Your friend really did it right.

    I am in this very situation myself, a groom looking for the right gift. The last wedding I was in I got a fifth of Knob Creek Bourbon...MMMM. I am leaning towards a nice light or knife for my guys as well. Instead of a couple things, I will probably just go a little more on the one thing. Leaning towards a knife right now but it may change, to a nice light.
