  1. Black Orchid by: Tom Ford

Captivating, sexy-rich, and worn by some of the best!

  1. Prada Amber by: Prada

Courageous, fresh, and lovely-warm scent.
Mellow and sophisticated cologne for men that would reprise the theme of their eponymous feminine fragrance, namely amber.

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.
