    Hey guys,

    So I'm getting hitched in the fall and I'm trying to figure out some decent gifts for my buddies in my wedding party. I was thinking beer steins, but I'm on a budget and I don't want a cheap looking stein or glass. I was thinking a personalized beer stein but I want it to be something that my buddies will actually utilize and not just collect dust after a couple of years.

    Any other ideas? Thanks.

    Buy something funny that also can come in use, like a fleshlight.

    Get wooden beer tankards engraved or lasered or whatever. They are huge and sturdy and would get put to use.

    Flasks is another go-to.

    Anything with alcohol in it or maybe even something herbal is always good guy gifts.

    Well everyone in the wedding party are beer drinkers. However, knives and scotch are pretty good ideas. What kinds of scotch should I stick with?

    Where would I be able to get wooden tankards? Another problem I have is the shipping and duty costs for international online stores...

    Get something functional, not some crap that is never going to get used like cufflinks or a beer stein or a flask. Go out to your local liquor store and buy everyone two or three 22oz bottles of really, really good craft beer. Give it to them before the wedding, tell them it's going to be a great night and a great party, and you want them to remember the night next time they sit down after a horsesh!t day at work and want to pop open a good beer.

    My buddy got us all nice bottle openers with our names on them. Pretty useful, and seemed relatively cheap.

    I got an iPod nano when I was best man. A beer stein or quality knife would have been a big improvement.

    +1 on the fleshlight, TS. But fair warning. The fleshlight doesn't come, and trust me it's in use all the time.

    I've gotten a flask, a nice bottle opener, a book press, a small leather note pad with a nice "thank you" note on the first page, and golf balls. I'd rather have gotten nothing than the golf balls I knew he got free but I liked the others.
