So you're getting married soon and you want to give your mates something to thank them for keeping their mouths shut years of loyalty and friendship. Your partner is giving their nearest and dearest something special, and you want to do the same. But where to begin?
Google 'groomsmen gift' and you'll be confronted with pewter mugs with "GROOMSMEN" engraved on the front (super useful!), bullets (yes bullets) with "GROOMSMEN" engraved into the side of them, or maybe bottle opener with, you guessed it, "GROOMSMEN" engraved into it.
Enough already, it's got to stop! NO MORE BOGAN GROOMSMEN GIFTS!
Not wanting to state the obvious, but weddings are expensive (Sherlock!). If you're in the process of planning one, or are involved in one or worse yet, paying for one, then you're going to want to read on.
If weddings are not in your future, but a 21st, baby shower or corporate event is, that is, anywhere where it's customary, or just plain nice, to give a little something to guests to thank them for celebrating with you, then yep, you should probably read on too.
Not sure if you've been lucky enough to experience it, but sometimes, if you stay at a swanky hotel, there's a fancy bowl of fresh fruit or a basket of goodies perched on a coffee table waiting for you when you enter your hotel room. It's terribly exciting! Sometimes the hotel might organise it for you for an anniversary or special event in which case you go for it! Other times sadly, it is trickery and deception, and just like a spring loaded mini bar, one way or another you know you're gonna pay for it! But let's just stick with the positives shall we?
