So it is freaking cold here in the Chicago area. I was talking to a friend who is getting married and unfortunately I am going to miss the wedding, and when she asked “What should I buy the Groomsman (lesbians, always the butch) I said why not get them something to keep them warm like a Leather Flask that you can also engrave.
Now, I definitely have a thing for a drink here and there, but this is seriously not a bad idea for a gift for the Groomsman or Lesbians as 1. You can fill it with a nice brandy or cognac if you live in a cold climate and pass them out to the party to keep them warm while they wait and fuss over you. 2. A flask for some reason always comes in handy at some point in your life. 3. Flasks are entertaining, people love to act like they are drinking, make jokes and really actually have a great time with them. 4. If you ever end up going to a concert, (Madonna for me) and they have no Vodka, I learned fast to bring my own and the way I got it in was with a flask, a leather flask actually like this one, and was able to enjoy one of my favorite performers with one of my favorite beverages. 5. If the Groomsman have kids and the kids won’t sit still, you can empty out the booze and give them something to play grownup with or let them participate quitely and drink apple juice or something out of the flask. 6. If it is freezing out, as we all know, Liquor makes you at least feel warm and be less sensitive to the cold….this is not a scientific fact as far as I know, but at least for my friends and I, Liquor seems to do the trick and what better thing to have if you ever get stuck outside in the cold or it is freezing one night, that to have your trusty engraved flask with you. 7. A Flask is not an ordinary gift to get and as you can tell with some of the posts in here, I don’t like to do things ordinary. I like to be unique and fun, so why not give your wedding party monogramed flasks or have their names engraved into a leather flask for their wedding party present.
Anyways, I am not sure how I went from wanting to write about how it is freaking freezing in Chicago and how a flask would help to keep you warm in the cold by supplying you with liquor and thinning your blood to a list of reason why you should give leather engraved or monogrammed flasks away as wedding party gifts, but if you decide to buy one for your self or 20 for your wedding party, make sure you send one my way because you can never have to many flasks. lol.
The flask I recommend is from Ashmont Engraving and is called the Vail Leather Flask. It is classy and gorgeous and I love it. It is also on sale right now (2/7/09) for $28.80 + shipping and handling. Here is the description they provide.
