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!

The Man Registry is phenomenal. The customer service is exceptional - seriously. You send an e-mail and a person (a friendly one at that) actually responds within an hour. Also, gift options are diverse and plentiful so you'll be able to find what works best for you.
