Though wedding planning is not always entirely relaxing, creating a registry is fun. A wedding registry list gives wedding guests pre-picked gifts the couple is certain to love. You can add items from any retailer, any platform, and any corner of the internet (at least when you register with Zola!) to create the ultimate wish list of everything you want and need to start your life with your soon-to-be-spouse.

And while there’s definitely room on the registry for items for the two of you as a couple, there’s also an opportunity to register for a few wedding gifts that are just for you—and that includes if you’re the groom. But finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, it can be hard to find a groom's gift he’ll absolutely love. Here are some of our picks for the best fun wedding registry gifts for guys.
