Hi All,

What is everyone doing for their Best Men/Ushers/Father of the Bride/Father of the Groom? I need to get some gifts - but not sure what - maybe cufflinks? Or is that too boring?! Plus I have very little money left to spend.

Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks :)

    My fiance is organising the gifts for the best men and ushers. He is looking at giving them cufflinks shaped like subutio players. I'm not going to buy a present for my dad, or at least I hadn't thought about it...maybe I should!

    Those sound like fun cufflinks!! I didn't want to leave the dads out as everyone else gets gifts (BM, Best Man, Ushers, Mums) - so I thought something small might be nice.

    My h2b is sorting out the men, so far he's come up with an experience day zorbing ( i think thats what its called), designer wallet, ipod (yeah because we're loaded!!!) or some other gadget I wasn't listening to him explain.

    That's it so far, thankfully the only men is the BM, 1 usher and my dad.

    My brother and brother in law are wearing suits because they asked too, they are not doing anything to require presents!

    None of them wear suits on a regular basis so no point buying cufflinks or tie pins, and all the men are getting hip flasked filled with JD as favours!

    I love the idea of filled hip flasks. Do the reception venue mind? We were going to try something like this however we were told it was £25 corkcage on every botte including the minitures we were going to give the guys. We are now thinking as favours to give out a voucher for a free drink of their choice at the bar. This will cost aprox £3.50 per guest apparently. I will have T and C's stipulating no champagne, expensive drinks :beer:
