Picking gifts for groomsmen is TOUGH—especially when you have a picky groom! We always knew that half of our groomsmens’ gifts would be a tie for each guy to wear, so that was easy. I picked those up from Men’s Wearhouse—and with them already on sale, plus a 50% off coupon, they came to be about ten bucks each! Major score!
Unfortunately, the second part of this gift hunt wasn’t so easy. Mr. Elk wasn’t really a fan of the conventional groomsmen gifts available, mainly because he didn’t deem them practical (the only exception being personalized beer mugs, which he had already been gifted by his brother at his brother’s wedding. Of course a beer obsessed guy would want to give everyone that!). Mr. Elk has always been more of a fan of gifts that can actually get use, rather than cutesy, potentially more meaningful gifts, so we got to work. After days of thinking and searching, my brain was really hurting. But finally, we had an idea that he approved of—a multi-tool! After all the things I suggested were shot down, I was so glad there was ANY idea Mr. Elk approved of, so I immediately had him order these up…just happy to be done!
Oh, did I mention we decided on these like two weeks before the wedding? Yea…whoops!
Did you wait a while before making an important decision regarding the wedding? Did it work out for you?
