Ever watch “My Big Fat Redneck Wedding” on the CMT network? It’s a reality show that documents down-home country couples as they prepare to take a trip down the aisles of matrimony -- it’s like a train wreck that you can’t turn away from. After watching a bubba-thon of these episodes one day and getting high on Cheetos and Twinkies, I started thinking about what would make some really cool groomsmen gifts for the redneck.
Can of Coins - There’s no tackier way to express your sentiments for a friend’s help during your wedding than by presenting him with some coin – and we’re talking actual coins in a coffee can. While this gesture in groomsmen gifts shows that you can’t be bothered with the time it takes to pick a personalized gift, a true redneck recipient will be excited to receive fresh funds for a beer run.
Beer Gifts – Speaking of beer runs, any groomsmen gift related to beer – preferably a cheap, mass-produced domestic – is one sure to get consumed. Let him drink beer from high falutin’ personalized beer mugs bearing his favorite past-time. Or, make sure he never runs out of tops to pop with a Joe Six Pack Belt, a genius invention that keeps half a dozen cold cans strapped down to his body.
Tattoo Shop Gift Card – Nothing says true friendship than getting inked, present him a pre-paid certificate for a tattoo to supplement his already impressive collection. Perhaps these groomsmen gifts can be redeemed at the end of a wild bachelor party!
Steak Brand – Put some sizzle into your groomsmen gifts with a steak iron, some feature monograms while some feature logos – there’s even a NASCAR iron. Fixing up a beef filet might sound out of his league, no one says he has to sear the design into a prime cut -- steak brands work just as well on Spam. Yum!
