Well how about creating man kits for the men that are filled with fun man goodies? Like, for instance razors, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, deodorant, shaving cream, cologne, musk, gum, mini sewing kit, q-tips, Kleenex, breath mints, foot powder, gel, baby powder, Band-Aids, lotion, chapstick, Vaseline, hand sanitizer, soap, min shampoo and conditioner, etc. There are so many things that men use every day. Alot of the items can be found at the dollar store or in the dollar section of Target.

So you could be super creative with this gift. Men love getting gifts that are fun like that. My mom bought my fiance a man kit one year for Christmas. She filled it with goodies that he uses day. He went nuts over the gift. It was a huge hit with him! She got the man kit at Target for about $5.00. Then she headed over to the health and beauty section at Target and bought him dollar items to fill his man kit with. He still uses his man kit. He loves it so much! Every year for Christmas I get more items for his man kit.

Those flasks and mugs are terribly tacky anyways. No one won’t to take anything with them to drink out of it with an engraved couples names with hearts. They’re guys. Lol ;]
Anways to answer your question there are multiple options. A bag with things such as a deck of cards, and some fun things, you could get them a swiss army knife if they’re into that, something from an auto or tool stool, something for their individual taste, or even have the groom take them to a day of bowling, shooting or paintballing(like the girls would for the spa) as their gift. I love home made gifts and I love the idea of blankets and to be honest this may seem like a girl thing but I made some fleece tied blankets for my best friends(who are guys) for christmas one with their favorite football team, one with their favorite baseball team, and the last one with wolves on it because he’s totally obsessed. They LOVED them and these guys are usually jerks so they weren’t just being nice;] it’s such a great gift because they can keep it on their bed, in their car or take it to the game with them :] plus fleece if you get it on sale can be under $10 for 2 yards which would be more than enough.

They have personalized items that are not that expensive.

Just be yourself. It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else.
