Affordable Wedding Favors for Men

Friday, November 7th, 2014

We know that women often receive wedding favors at the wedding reception but male guests like to receive nice tokens of appreciation at special events. The key is to give male wedding guests masculine gifts that are fun but still practical at the same time. One idea is to give each male guest an engraved shot glass because many men enjoy alcoholic beverages and a neat shot glass would be great for them to have. You can buy colored shot glasses with masculine designs such as cars, sports equipment or music notes.

Personalized Keychains

Another good wedding favor for men besides the engraved shot glass is to give all of the groomsmen personalized keychains. These are practical gifts that will be used for years to come and the keychains are inexpensive to buy in bulk. Purchase the keychains in neutral colors since these are the most fitting colors for men at weddings.

Tickets To Sporting Events

Tickets to sporting events are also neat wedding favors to give your groomsmen and you can package the tickets in black or a dark brown envelope with a funny engraved message on the front of each envelope. The messages can be about your groomsmen’s personalities that pertain to their favorite sports.

Miniature Colored Blank Business Cards

For the groomsmen who own businesses, you can assist them in promoting themselves by giving them a small bag filled with personalized business cards that contain their names and contact information about their businesses. This is a nice practical gift to give to business minded groomsmen.

Fancy Ink Pens

Men will always need good stationery to use so if you’re looking for good wedding favors for your groomsmen, fancy ink pens are great to give them. Package the ink pens in dark colored pen cases and then wrap a bow around each of the cases for the personal touch. Add a few notepads and bookmarks to the bag with the pens.
Women are not the only ones who enjoy cool party favors when they attend weddings; men like these as well. Think about the personality of your groomsmen and give favors accordingly. You don’t have to spend a fortune on groomsmen’s party favors because you can get them at inexpensive prices. Package the gifts in decorative yet masculine gift bags and attach thank you notes to the bags. You should also include useful items such as mints and travel size deodorant.

Gift Ideas for Husband’s Man Cave

Friday, November 7th, 2014

So it’s been a few weeks since your wedding and you are thinking of ways you can decorate the new home together. Why not turn the basement into a customized man cave for your husband? Your husband will enjoy his personal space and he can invite friends over for games or small gatherings during the year. You can place a wine cellar or bar inside the man cave and then you may decide to include posters of your husband’s favorite football team. For the husband who visits pubs, you can order a few customized pub signs for him to put on the door to the man cave. Here are other gift ideas for the man cave.

Game Equipment

Inside the man cave your husband wants to relax and feel like a kid again and the best way to provide this kind of entertainment for him is with game equipment. Your husband may not like video games but you can place a dart board, pool table, poker table and a few boxes of different card games in the basement so your husband and his buddies can enjoy themselves with friendly competition.

Box of Vintage Wines

For the husband who has more sophisticated tastes, substitute the cases of beer for boxes of good vintage wines that he can store in his wine cellar inside the man cave. Vintage wines are a great way for your husband to show off his classy lifestyle and these wines also taste good. Purchase a combination of red and white vintage wines.

Electric or Gas Grill

If you’re turning the garage into a funky man cave, give your husband the gift of a grill so he can prepare his signature barbecued ribs for the family and good friends. Read reviews of different grills from various brands and choose a model that would suit your husband’s cooking needs the best.

Flat Screen TV

There will be times when you and your husband will not want to watch the same movies or TV programs and if you’re creating a man cave for him, a good gift to buy for him is a flat screen TV so that your husband can watch his favorite shows and relax in peace. In addition to the TV you can buy him a few DVDs, some personalized beer mugs, monogrammed coasters to place the mugs, and some customized area rugs in his favorite colors.

Salute in Style!

Royalty Glass Bottom Tankard

My husband and I have been married now for 7 years, and I’m perfectly happy when I go back and look at our wedding photos and see the flasks our groomsmen received at the rehearsal dinner.

Happy–but now a little envious, too. How could I not be after seeing this exquisite collection of pewter glass bottom tankards? Featuring four different styles appropriate for a variety of occasions, these tankards set the new standard for class in gift-giving for men.

Each pewter tankard is perfectly polished and designed with the highest attention to detail. They hold 16oz of your favorite beverage and come in a handsome black card box, making even the packaging elegant. Crafted with a strong-arm handle and clear glass bottom, every tankard can be personalized–either with initials or a full name, depending on the design–for that extra special touch.

I can imagine going back in time and seeing our bridal party toast with these tankards. I can see giving one to my dad when he retires in a few years. I can picture the smile on my husband’s face if he receives it for Father’s Day next year. Whatever the reason, this is a man’s gift, and any man would be grateful to receive it.
