  1. Personalized Bottle Opener

This isn’t your ordinary bottle opener. Not only is it hand crafted, but it makes for an interesting conversation piece.

Each bottle opener is made from bourbon wood staves that were used at commercial distillery in Kentucky. The story doesn’t stop there. The barrels were then used to age craft beer at a small St. Louis craft brewery. We challenge you to find a more ideal gift for your craft beer-loving groomsmen.

Thousands of Satisfied Grooms and Groomsmen

Since 2008, we’ve been the go-to site for personalized, unique groomsmen gifts and wedding tips for men. We’re also proud to be the original groom’s gift registry.

I reached out to The Man Registry on a Saturday, just 7 days before my wedding, asking for help with my groomsmen gifts. I heard back within an hour and was able to get 8 personalized coolers in just 3 days. Ordering was easy and the quality was top notch. Would highly recommend The Man Registry!
