Sports related wedding gifts?

Postby SOUTHSIDE HITMEN » Mon Aug 14, 2006 9:23 pm

I don't know where the correct forum is to ask this question, but anyone give or receive a sports related grooms gift? I was thinking of giving my grooms men personalized jerseys, but they were going to be 110 a pop. I have 10 people standing up so that's out of the question. Anyone have any ideas on my little problem?

"Candlesticks make a nice gift."

Seriously though...what about something like a zippo lighter or flask with their initials and their favorite team logo. I know zippos are made with team logos on them.

You could buy them tickets to a game. That way they can sit around and reminisce about how Hitman used to be able to go to the games before he put on the leash. ;-D

I'm going to move this over to GT.

10 people is a lot. Even a pair of tickets for each guy is going to be expensive. Not sure if you guys are into fights or if you live close enough but you could always throw a sports-related party for them. Order the next Boxing/UFC/Pride PPV, supply the beer and food. You could do that for about $200 which would only be $20 a head.

20 bucks each to your groomsman? the same guys who are gonna end up dropping anywhere from 500 to a 1000 bucks on or for the groom in a months time? that's cheapo.

a buddy of mine is getting married in 2 weeks, 32 people not including the bride and groom standing up! :-o

Ok, I have to ask as my curiosity is now peaked....


1) 32 people????? Please explain that one.


2) Groomsmen spend 500 to 1000 on the groom? For what? I got ripped off then! My guys didn't spend but MAYBE $300 combined, including tuxes, gas, liquor, etc.

I need more wealthy pals. :*) :*)

Course, our wedding stuff was mostly trade outs and family & friends cooking or DJing or whatever they do, so I put out almost no cash. ;-D

1. 15 people standing up on each side. 1 ring bearer 1 flower girl. she's very very italian so like half of her family is standing up on his side. it's silly, gonna end up being like 650+ guests! gonna be a great time.

2. and maybe youre right about wedding prices, guess it depends on the groups.
