Man Cave Gift Ideas

Man Cave Gift Ideas

Whether it’s for a birthday, Christmas time, Father’s Day, an anniversary or another major milestone, buying a gift for the man in your life can be a struggle. When it comes to man cave gifts, you want to get something that blends a bit of novelty fun with a piece of kit he’ll really love — and actually get some use out of. At the same time, you don’t want to get something that’s too serious and practical. After all, this is a man cave we’re talking about.

If you want to strike the perfect balance and give him a man cave item that’s sure to delight, you need our man cave gift guide. From the must-have items no lad pad would be complete without to the amazing gifts that will make him say, “Hey, why didn‘t I think of that?” we’ve got it all. So, without further ado, let’s get into the best man cave gift ideas for any occasion.

Man cave gift ideas he’ll actually use

The process of building and furnishing a man cave with everything a bloke could ever desire is an ongoing process — it doesn’t happen overnight. We’ve assembled a list of the best man cave gifts that will suit any setup, whether their cave is currently more of a garage and a dream or the crowning jewel of their castle that plays host to game night every week. 

  • The essential item for any well-stocked man cave

    Let’s start with the basics. It goes without saying that a man cave can’t really earn its name without a way of keeping beers ice cold and ready for action. A bar fridge or beer fridge is an absolute must-have, so guests can keep the good times and cold beverages flowing without the need to leave the comfort of the cave. The size you choose is up to you and the limitations of the space, of course. You might want to go for an al fresco model that will accommodate beer, wine and soft drinks, or grab a retro-style mini fridge that blends with the rest of a collector’s vintage decor and memorabilia. For added convenience, an upright bar fridge with his favourite footy team, band or car manufacturer adds a touch of decor and is a practical way to keep the amber ale flowing.

  • A gift that’s sure to bring the party

    Beer fridges are alright for everyday, but if their man cave is the go-to venue for the end-of-season knees-up, summer parties and regular shindigs, a mini fridge can start to look a little underpowered. What’s the solution for keeping guests well-watered? Enter the kegerator. This wondrous little contraption takes the joy of freshly poured beers from the pub and transplants them smack bang in the middle of the man cave. Made to fit any standard mini size keg, the kegerator uses stylish fittings to connect your beer of choice to taps that serve ice cold bevvies to all of his mates. Plus, there’s the undeniable fun of getting to pour your own fresh schooners every time — like bringing a little bit of the magic from your local into your own residence.

  • The nostalgia-bomb that’s hours of entertainment

    If their man cave already has the widescreen TV with live sports on-demand and a fresh supply of ice-cold beers, you might be stuck for man cave gift ideas to add to the already impressive setup. So, why not bring in an element of childhood delight with a retro arcade game? Whether it’s a nostalgic pinball machine adorned with their favourite character, film or band, a foosball table jukebox, or an arcade game compatible with Nintendo, Sega and Atari console titles, they’re sure to love this trip down memory lane — it will keep the boys occupied for hours in between main title fights and Friday night footy. 

  • Don’t forget the furniture and decor

    So far, we’ve focused on the essential entertainment and man cave items that you first think of when you imagine the space. But there are more subtle elements that help to create the atmosphere of a secluded den of tranquillity. Furniture may not have been the first thing they bought to decorate their man cave with, but you can bet it’ll be much appreciated as a man cave gift. If guests have been relegated to the flea-bitten old couch for too long, try a seriously comfortable two or four-seater leather recliner. With separate controls for each seat, it’s a better way for the boys to enjoy a couch. Plus, the leather is a low-maintenance, wipe-clean alternative to a fabric or cloth-covered couch – a major plus for cleaning up after a big night.

  • The slightly fancy kit his friends will have serious envy over

    For the man cave aficionado that has it all, you might still be feeling stumped for man cave gift ideas that haven’t already been exhausted. It’s at this point we like to recommend pulling out the big guns, with a slightly gourmet twist they might not have thought of themselves. If they’re already enjoying their own beers on tap and bespoke entertainment, why not give them a portable pizza oven? Made from lightweight, transportable materials and powered by gas for a perfect crust and finish, a man cave pizza oven will complete their setup, providing entertainment and delicious food for the whole crowd to enjoy.

  • For the collector

    Rounding out our list is the man cave gift that just might make their year. If your resident man is a super fan or avid collector, surprise him with the gift of a lifetime in the form of signed special edition memorabilia. Not only will their memorabilia gift add to the atmosphere and decor of the man cave, it’s also an investment that can rise in value over time. A prized possession they can keep on their wall and spark many a conversation with, a genuine piece of memorabilia gives any man cave that all-important touch of authenticity.
