    Hey, I'm getting married in a month and I've been getting killed by my fiancee because I don't have my groomsmen gifts bought yet. I wanted to get them nice duffel bags with their names embroidered on, but haven't found a great source. Any ideas?

    Best groomsman gift I have gotten so far is a vinyl type collapsible cooler with the wedding info printed on it and a 6 pack. 2nd best gift was a real nice deer knife.

    Pick up the tab for their tuxs if you are not already, that is always appreciated.

    One of the coolest things I've received was an all purpose divot tool (think Swiss Army, but all golf related tools) with my name etched on it.

    That is a good idea.

    Or a 4 pack of really heavy nice pint glasses would be cool too.

    This or mugs would be cool. A nice set of drinking tools is always good to have.

    I bought my groomsmen black and white checkered vans that we all wore at the wedding and my wife bought her bridesmaids chuck taylors to wear at the reception - everyone loved them.

    I got a Leatherman multitool for being in a wedding. Pretty cool, and something I still use.

    I gave my groomsmen Small Nike Duffel bags with their name/nickname embroidered on the end. I just ordered mine from Iowa Sports in Cedar Falls I think.

    Thats actually pretty cool. Would be handy playing bags or something during TG for a spot to put your beer.

    That RedEnvelope site sometimes has some cool stuff - I thought that was one of the more ingenious items for an ISU fan. Plus it makes you look like a cowboy. :wink:

    This isn't going to go well... ;)

    I went to scheels and got the ISU golf towel, balls and tees package thing, and had their names embroidered on the towel.
