Although, Jimmy Kimmel was a bit upset about not getting invited to the wedding, his adorable gift to the couple might make them regret their decision of not inviting him. Keeping in mind Ben Affleck’s Dunkin’ Donuts obsession, Kimmel got them a pair of sterling silver bride and groom Dunkin’ Donuts cups.
