Is it okay to pretend to be giving back weird personal items to my groomsmen instead of real gifts?

Boxing Up The Groomsman Gift

The best groomsman gift shouldn't cost a lot of money. Actually, it shouldn't require a lot of thought or careful consideration either. Nothing screams “creative groomsmen gifts” more then something totally unexpected and highly inappropriate. Hey, this is your wedding and you can do whatever you want! For this groomsman gift you don't have to spend any money at all, or very little money. All you need is a box and a bunch of stuff from your place. Start out by saying something about moving on, letting go of the past, and returning things your friends have left at your place over the years. Then start pulling things out of the box with a little explanation on what the item is. Here's an idea of what I mean, although you're only limited by your creativity:

  • Tommy, here's that ointment you've been looking for. Hope you feel better soon.
  • Ralph, I found your diary under my bed and made the mistake of reading it. The cops should be stopping by tonight to ask you a few questions.
  • Doug, here are those ladies heels you were looking for. Size 11, right?
  • Merv, I found those white pleathor pants you were looking for but couldn't pull them off the rubber doll. Sorry man.
  • George, my friend. Remember when we tried to pierce your tongue with the knitting needle? I found the knitting needle!

Okay, it's a little crazy, but so are your groomsmen. It's up to you how far you want to go with the stunt. The idea is to share a good laugh with friends and family, not alienate people you've just met, or friends you've known forever.
