On a mission to turn the “modern man into a gentleman”, the guys behind Forgetful Gentlemen cards have dissected the obstacles that keep men from writing cards and obliterated them one-by-one. Between their email reminder service, their “Guide to Articulate Writing” and the postage they actually put on the envelope for you, they have literally taken away any possible (or shall we say plausible) excuses that prevent your guy from getting his thank you notes done.
And, they are very, well, manly. Letterpressed with a simple image, they are clean, sophisticated, and look like they’re from the desk of a man who knows something about the finer things in life (and who doesn’t want to Don Draper it up…
Check out these products from the Green Bride Guide Registry. These are the top holiday editor’s picks for 2011!

When I saw these customized bow tie flasks from The Hair of the Dog I thought they’d make a fantastically fun gift for the groomsmen! All flasks are stainless steel and can be personalized with names, dates, initials, etc. You can even select a different background color to coordinate with your wedding colors.
And, if you don’t want to leave the bridesmaids out, not to worry, there are custom flasks for the bridal party, too. Even the bride and groom, if that’s how they want to roll!
There are a slew of styles and colors so finding the perfect fit to commemorate the day shouldn’t be too difficult. Keeping the groomsmen from needing a little “hair of the dog” the day of the wedding? That may require a little more effort.
We love the guys over at The Man Registry; they’re funny, have a great site just for the wedding men folk, and are very, well, manly. We couldn’t be happier to have them guest blogging for us today with ideas from the heart of their site. Enjoy!
Here’s a scenario that might sound familiar: there’s a month to go before the big day and you’ve just realized that your fiancé hasn’t even begun looking at groomsmen gifts yet. Don’t worry, it’s natural. Guys (as you know) love waiting until the last minute to get things accomplished. If you want to grease the rails, here are a few suggestions from The Man Registry…
It may be because I grew up with four sisters but I think men are notoriously hard to buy for; there are only so many books and CDs you can buy before it looks like you’re not even trying…
So, we’ve put together a few ideas to get you going, but, please, offer up your suggestions in the comments. I need all the help I can get!
For the Beer Man
Sometimes drinking beer is just not enough. Brooklyn Brew Shop’s Beer Making Kits include everything he needs to get started, including a glass fermenter so he doesn’t have to mess up the bathtub. And even if he’s not making his own home brew, Beer Savers,…
I have a rather large weak spot for mustaches. Not so much the Tom Selleck kind; more the portable kind that you can whip out at a moment’s notice to get the party going.
At our wedding we ordered these fantastic mustaches on a stick and what we discovered was people love a mustache. For real. Folks that normally seemed uncomfortable posing for photos suddenly… well, sometimes a picture really can do what words can’t.I’m pretty sure if your grandma starts acting like a pirate, your mustaches have done their job.
Which is why these photo paddles from PhotoJoJo are the ultimate photo find. They come in a set of five, including a speech bubble, which would…
Omerica is one of those companies where the more you look into it, the cooler it is. Not only are they super eco-friendly (on average, they plant 700 trees for every one they use) but their products are all-organic, completely handmade in Denver and, oh yeah, their stuff totally rocks.
