It's no secret that spring has sprung here in Charleston. It's been made abundantly clear to me through my sinuses and allergies. But more importantly, I can tell it's spring because of all the adorable couples I know that are getting engaged and/or have spring or summer weddings planned! eeeeekk! Mitch and I got married in the fall because that's our absolute favorite time of the year. But spring and summer weddings are nice too. And since there are a few up in the air around these parts lately, I decided to throw together something that is often left out or easily forgotten during the wedding shenanigans; a "guy's gift package" for either your groomsmen or for the groom himself.
I know Mitch really appreciated a few special things that the fellas in our wedding gave him. They were sentimental, consumable, and masculine. And just in case any guy out there is struggling to come up with something fun to give that buddy of his during a special time in his life, here's a little nudge for ya. Again, this could be something for a wedding gift, a groomsmen gift, or a "just because" gift you ladies surprise your man with.
I made a trip out to Walmart in search of some goodies for the guy's gift package. When I saw the Cubero Cigars I knew I couldn't go wrong. So, fun fact-- I didn't know this until we got married (and then when we had a baby) (and you probably already know this, so forgive me) but often times, guys give guys cigars as a celebratory thing. Whether it's a wedding or a new baby being born or something else worth celebrating. So what better addition to the gift package than a pack of high quality cigars. These Cubero cigars pack a pretty powerful punch- with delicious smelling and tasting qualities, a natural wrapper, and premium quality blends. And it doesn't stop there. This brand is available in pipe tobacco and fine-cut tobacco. If there's one thing my husband loves to do to get his chill and relax on, it's gotta be smoking a pipe.
\\\ Cubero Cigars in 3 master blends
\\\ altoids - 'nuff said
\\\ a pack of cards- because who doesn't like playing cards?
\\\ dress socks- Mitch. Loves. Dress socks. Like seriously, he's sort of obsessed with them. Argyle socks=dapper. Or Tom Haverford.
\\\ a handwritten letter- if this is for a groom or groomsmen, this is a pretty unique approach to personalizing the gift. Mitch was given a handwritten letter from a good buddy and to this day it's in a special place because it meant so much to him.
\\\ gum- Mitch occasionally enjoys chewing on gum while he smokes. Adds fun flavor.
HONORABLE MENTIONS THAT I DIDN'T HAVE ON HAND:
-Ray-ban Aviators (not pictured because my husband is currently using them but they sure do make cigars look extra cool)
-a stainless steel flask
-favorite snack of the giftee
I grabbed an old cigar box that was collecting dust up on a shelf in our closet and thought it would be a nice vintage vessel in which to give the gift.
I definitely like gifts with personal touches and special meaning. What would you add to a gift like this?
