Looking for groomsmen’s gifts they’ll really be able to use? My Fab Find is the Zippo® lighter, a classic essential that the company has evolved into an impressive array of designs, from sleek and professional polished chrome to more personality-driven designs like the ones I’ve chosen here. Now, the groomsmen’s gifts don’t have to match; you can pick the design that’s most him.
Your groomsmen will appreciate that you’ve chosen a design that suits his interests, perhaps even his humor, and they’re really going to appreciate that you got them a lighter that works, not some cheap lighter that never goes aflame when you need it to.
The Zippo® lighter makes my Fab Find list because it saved the day for us during Superstorm Sandy’s aftermath, when we had no power for a week, our grill lighter ran out of gas, and you couldn’t find any lighters or even matches in the stores, let alone D batteries for flashlights. People were actually selling lighters on the street for $100 a pop during that traumatic time. But we had my husband’s Zippo in a cabinet, and it worked. We had candlelight for the whole house. The neighbors saw the glow in our windows and asked if they could use our Zippo. So if your groomsmen ever find themselves in a natural disaster or even just your garden variety blackout, they’re going to love you even more for giving them a gift that saves the day, comforts their families, and rescues them.
