I know this thread has been done, but hear me out - the situation is a bit different.
My dad and three of his friends are completely remodeling my kitchen over the next couple of weeks. None of them want to be paid - they're just helping out. My dad found a great deal for golf/lodging at Treetops, so he bought the packages to take the buddies who are helping on a golf weekend. I ordered a gift card from Big Buck so they can go out for dinner/drinks when they're up there.
I'd like to get something else smaller, maybe to go along with the golf weekend thing. They are all retired and as far as I can tell, they love golf, golf, and more golf. I think they are all Spartan fans.
Thanks for any ideas!
I'm not giving my Dad and his friends anal. Thanks.
Hookers and blow
If not anal, then perhaps painal? I needed brodson to weigh in on this...

Give them each a stack of dollar bills so they can go to Omar's and make it rain.

all at the same time might be kind of tacky but if it was on an individual basis it could be a nice personalized thank you gift.

Here is the starter kit:
Seeing that they are 3 guys on a golf roadtrip up north without female supervision, I'm going to out on a limb and say quality liquor/beer of some sort might be appreciated. Can never have enough of that on such said trips.
Bottle of good scotch or bourbon.

If you're looking to get a Dude gift, I would suggest a rug (preferably the kind that would really tie a room together). Or maybe just a bottle of vodka, a bottle of Kahlua and some half and half.

When will Women learn that men are simple efficient creatures? It doesn't take much to make us content:
Competition, Booze, Meat, and Sex....and that's pretty much it.
Since Sex seems to be out of the question, and you've already gotten competition covered with the golf, that leaves you with Booze and Meat.
Get em liquored up, and treat em to a steak dinner and they'll be in your debt.

Come on, no one here would suggest you give your Dad anal (well, Brodson might (in all caps), but relatively few others).
I didn't mean FROM me in that way. Just on a secondary level... the anal middle-man, if you will (but please don't).
Seriously though, booze should be covered with dinner. I was thinking some sort of token/trinket thing. New golf hat or towel? Gift cards to the range?
spartan golf balls, spartan tees, and maybe a spartan club cover
I don't know your dad and his friends, but I know most guys wouldn't mind having something around where they are staying so they can have a drink/beer when they get home from the course, while they are hanging around getting ready for dinner, nightcap after dinner, etc.
Edit: And don't do a trinket or something unless it is very nice or cool and they will actually use it. I'm sure they all have plenty of hats/shirts/towels etc they have accumulated over the years and pretty much just use for painting/doing work around the house.

Give 'em each a Vespa and a Spartan zubaz hat.

Spartan golf balls would be nice. You can even have them personalized for them. Every guy will also gladly accept a towel for their golf bag (they are kind of like t-shirts, you never then one down).
Dont get your dad and his buddies some token/trinket thing instead of booze. Trust me, it will get thrown in a drawer, forgotten, and then in 5 years thrown away or donated to goodwill.
Indiscreetly give them each a fleshlight. Except your dad. Unless he's single.
I say a Spartan cooler (on wheels) for each of them, along with a sixer or twelve pack of their favorite beer. Another option would be tickets to the scUM game this fall at Spartan Stadium so that they can go as a group. Or get four (4) tickets and you can be their driver for the day as well.
What this man says
Two words: topless caddies.
Or maybe call the golf course, give them your credit card, and arrange to pay for all of the group's drink cart purchases.
