The most popular gift idea was alcohol (37%), followed by a personalised gift (22%) and football tickets (16%). Other gift options included festival tickets, favoured by those under 25, and cufflinks, which were more popular with over 40s. 

When it comes to cost, 56% said between £40-£60 was the amount they expected to be spent on a best man gift, while 4% thought more than £100 was necessary. 

Only 51% of respondents thought grooms should buy a gift for their other ushers, with gifts expected to cost between £20-£40 and alcohol once again named as the gift of choice.
