Where To Find Your Gift

What Not To Give

Sadly, there's a good chance you're not making it out of a wedding without one or two bread makers. Or maybe a couple of toaster ovens. These are the perfect example of gifts to avoid because of how cliched and deeply impersonal they are. It would be similar to giving a letter opener, wallet, or a set of tools to your groomsmen. If they needed one of these items they probably would just go out and buy it for themselves. How many identical tool sets does one man need? The gift you give should be memorable and unique. But it shouldn't be so unique that it has no real use or application. You want to provide your groomsmen with something that will not only stand out but will have a useful purpose. Sure, most guys like Samurai Swords but do they make the most practical gift? Probably not. The same can be said for a set of branding irons, unless your friend lives on a cattle ranch
