One of the items I did not know when planning a wedding (well, outside of anything about planning a wedding), was the requirements to provide gifts and trinkets to all the various guests and support personnel. I was woefully mistaken in the assumption that my betrothed and I could just elope at the courthouse. Turns out there was some major pomp and circumstance to attend to.
Where I defaulted to providing the obligatory and unoriginal shot glasses with names and dates, there are some better options for those ballistically inclined. While .50 cal bottle openers are certainly not new (mine has many a beer under its feet) the fusion of the ballistic beverage breaker and nupital gift is a new one.
Offered by Bullets2Banages.org, a business that donates 15% of the profits to veteran charities, the Bullet Bottle Openers are completely customizable gifts. Offered in various colors including a matte black, pink, brass, and the “silver bullet” the groomsman gifts are a solid change of pace.
The gifts range from about $20 to $40, depending on the options and customization selected. The best part? They can be done in a few days for those of us (like me) who forget all those things one is “supposed” to do for a wedding!
