    Your language is starting to be confusing. If it's your big day, then I'd assume you're the groom and he's your best man (or one of your groomsmen, if you have multiples). That or you're both grooms, in which I think we'd be talking about a wedding gift, not a groomsman gift?

    Apologies. Didn't mean to confuse everyone. That's a good reason re-read what I've written before posting.

    I am getting married. I have my best man coming in to town to stand up for me. That will be it for the wedding party. I did offer to pay for his suit, but he has politely declined. I need to figure out what to a) get him as a gift and b) what price range that might be in and c) whatever else I'm missing out.

    @Shade That's actually not a bad idea...

    Thanks again.

    Got it, no worries just want to make sure we're giving input on what you're actually after. It sounds like a gift that's personal and tailored to him might make sense, regardless of the price, since he declined cash for the suit. Maybe y'all can get an old fashioned shave together on the day-off or something, plus a smaller personal gift, more as part of the experience than anything.
