Last Updated on October 31, 2020

When you give a gift to your man, you want that heartwarming grunt of pure pleasure. So let’s talk about man cave gifts that can do just that.

Maybe he seems to have everything. So, what do you get him?

Goodness knows, as much as a bro can complain about finding a gift for a woman, buying a gift for Dad, your brother, husband, son or boyfriend can be even tougher.

Man Cave Gifts

That’s why we’ve compiled this collection of Man Cave Gifts. It’s our man-approved list of things that will elicit that grunt of satisfaction and approval that means he’s dancing around on the inside.

Let’s talk a bit about the Cave of Man before moving on to specific (and frankly amazing) Man Cave Gifts.

What is a Man Cave?

man cave n. A room, basement, shed, or other area which is reserved solely for the man, his stuff, his hobbies, and his bros.

The man cave is his space. It’s a stinky, sweaty, bro-centric space to sit – think – nap – create – repair – destroy in joy and despair.  The space where his favorite beer is on tap, his recliner is always reserved, and the game is on.

It’s a place for the movies that inspire him, the art that reflects him. Where the video game graphics are discrete, and his favorite teams compete. His personal man-space. Some call it the Man Cave – Man-Land – the Mantuary, a sanctuary for his sanity.

Man Cave Decor

The Man Cave is always in as a decor trend for dudes.

The themes vary based on his interests, from the big screen TV running Sports Center, to the greasy garage with the beer fridge, to the paneled room with busy book shelves or the classy gentlemen’s pad.

Whatever it is, it’s awesome.

Typically, man cave decor includes plaques and pictures of his favorite things, with the central feature being a huge tv reserved for sports, war movies, and video gaming.

Man Cave Essentials

Every man cave should have at least several of these items:

  • Giant flat screen TV
  • Totally sick sound system
  • Recliner for him
  • Additional seating for bros
  • Gaming system
  • Home bar & accessories
  • Mini fridge
  • Sports or fandom memorabilia
  • Games (pool table, dart board, board games, etc)

You could also take it to the next level with the premium Barrel Head Garage Clock, which is available here.

4. What Happens in the Man Cave Sign

Man Cave Vintage Sign

What happens in the man cave stays in the man cave.

It’s not so much that there are secrets that need to be kept in the Man Cave; it’s not exactly Vegas in there.

Well, maybe not. Probably.

The main thing is that we don’t want what happens in there to contaminate the whole rest of the house. A man cave is sort of a metaphysical quarantine on the one side, and a boundary of the sanctuary on the other.

It’s good both ways. Get your man this vintage distressed wood man cave sign here and make sure whatever the heck happens there stays there.

5. Penalty Box Personalized Hockey Sign

Gifts for the Man Cave

If he’s into The Sports, there’s a sign for that. There’s the Penalty Box Sign pictured above, with a 3D puck emblem and crossed hockey sticks.

Then there’s a Fishing Hole Plaque for a fisherman’s lair, a 19th Hole Sign for the golfer, Billiards Room Sign for the pool room, Touchdown Tavern Plaque for the football junkie, and 10th Inning Pub Sign for the baseball connoisseur.

The Shootout Pub is a slam-dunk option, the Fishing Camp Vintage Sign is quite a catch, the Vintage Boxing Match Marquee will knock ’em dead, and this stellar Distressed Wood Vintage Man Cave Sign announces that all sporting events will be celebrated with good times and great friends.
