Q: What's a better groomsman's gift—cuff links (my choice) or a bottle of tequila (my fiancé's pick)? I think giving booze is juvenile.

A: Although cuff links have a certain sartorial significance, most guys—unless they're big into rocking French cuffs—don't have a use for them. Chances are the groomsmen will be psyched about getting something that they will actually enjoy. And, to be fair, tequila has gone upscale with the arrival of several high-end brands that can cost as much as a bottle of premium scotch. Still not convinced? Have your fiancé pair the tequila with cool crystal highball or shot glasses, which will make the gift more formal than frat boy.
