    Anybody out there have any good ideas for music related groomsmen gifts? If I could afford to buy them all guitars/basses I would but that would get expensive quickly. Trying to think of something cool for $50-100. Functional or not...haven't really decided but a functional gift might be cooler than just some swag.

    Ideas?

    I got some of mine the Korg Monotron. Now there's a couple versions of that. others I got Vox Amplugs although Amphones would be cool too.

    I bought custom engraved flasks for all my groomsmen. Four out of the five were musicians.

    Yeah I don't want to do flasks...I have at least 2 flasks and a giant beer stein from weddings I've been in so I assume they all have them already.

    Gift cards are always welcome. I did lava lamps but I'm weird. I like the Korg Monotron idea. I love mine, sounds huge with distortion and delay.

    I'm doing these for Christmas this year for a couple of people. Did them last year for the holidays, as well, and they were very well received.

    I got my groomsmen a really nice pen set. They all use them daily. Key is REALLY nice. My dad makes pens, so I just supplied money for parts. I think I spent around $50 per set, but would have been $120ish if I didn't get them at cost.
