Do you have a friend or loved one with a birthday coming up? Or perhaps you have someone who simply just needs a gift for being who they are- we have you covered. There are a variety of gifts for a man cave, some pertaining to specific themes while others can be extremely vague.
The key is to find the gift that stands out and shows the person you are getting it for that they are awesome and deserve something awesome! Let us take a look at some of these man cave gifts that relate to the two most common types of man caves out there: the sports man cave and the nerd / geek man cave!
I come from a sports family, and we always have a game on each day. Whether it is football, hockey, baseball, or any other sport, there are a variety of things you can look at that scream “THIS IS PERFECT!”
Everyone deserves something, and the fact that you are looking to get that special person something for his man cave speaks volumes- so let’s dive into the pinnacle of sporting gifts: autographed memorabilia. I am not talking a basic stamped autograph made by a machine and produced in surplus, but rather a genuine, authentic autographed item that is either rare or simply perfect for the likes of a fan.
There are a variety of options out there in terms of autographed memorabilia, some of which are common while others are unique. Some of these autographed options include:
- TOPS cards
- bats or baseballs
- championship banners
- hockey sticks or pucks
- And a lot more!
Choosing which option you want to purchase as your man cave gift is simply dependent on the likes of the person you are buying it for. If you are unsure if he has the space for signed equipment, an autographed photo from a player on his favorite team would be perfect. If you want to go a bit further, you can find the name of a hall of famer from his favorite team and find that online to get him that unique, priceless item to complete (or start) his man cave!
Are you wanting to go a bit more unique? You can find numerous sporting equipment online that players have taken the time to sign for fans of all ages. Signed baseballs and bats, signed hockey sticks and pucks, or signed jerseys/cleats are perfect for this option. There are possibilities of going even further in purchasing jerseys or cleats that were worn in specific games. This is the ultimate option that would put you in the best position of buying the ultimate man cave gift!
If these options are a little too specific and you are looking for something he will use for more than a display mount, you can find numerous lighting, furniture, and bar options as well!
Memorabilia Galore – No Man Can Say No!
Autographs aren’t for everyone. Sometimes all we want (or the person you are getting a gift for) is something we can use daily that relates to our favorite sport or team. Any signed memorabilia has a one time value, something they can mount in a display case or hang on a wall. This is great for a high majority of people, but it may be better to add something that has a multiple use function.
There are a variety options out there that relate to specific teams, such as:
- Mugs, Glassware, Shots
- Billiard Accessories
- And MANY more options!
The key for determining what to purchase as a gift isn’t as specific as autographed memorabilia. You simply need to know what they person needs. If they need a chair, end table, or coffee table, you simply need to find one that has the team’s logo and matches the color you deem fit!
Mugs and glassware has a bit more options than that of furniture, as there are dozens of options for each team someone may follow. If you are purchasing a gift for someone who is a fan of an NFL team, then your options of purchasing a cup with current team logos and players, or one with older logos and hall of famers.
There are far too many options to list here. I encourage you to take a look at our post regarding the best sports memorabilia sites to find the best options available and perhaps gain an idea of something you may not have thought of prior!
With that said, not everyone is a fan of sports. Let’s take a look at the second most popular man cave theme for ideas on the nerd or geek concept!
Nerdville – Population 3.5 Billion
I may have made that number, but let’s pretend it is accurate plus or minus 2. Deal?
With so many movies and television series being made each year, the comic related memorabilia has had an uprising in both demand and content. Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, and DC have all had a massive boost to their fan bases with the new Netflix shows and cinematic features being released every few months.
With this strong showing of visual stimulation, there has been an uprising of different content available for purchase online. There are so many options out there for autographs of famous actors playing the roles of your favorite comic characters, as well as autographed movie scripts and movie release posters.
Purchasing a gift for someone who is a big nerd should be captivating and to the point. If he is a fan of a specific movie, comic, or television series, then purchasing an autographed poster or photo by one of the characters is the PERFECT gift! Comics are another huge option for any nerd, as there are a lot of comics out there. You can find a surplus of comics related to most nerd’s fantasies HERE should you know what characters that special someone likes.
With this said, not everyone is a fan of having display cases of comics or character replicas throughout their man cave. We have a few other options for you as well!
Geeked Out Gifts
I could write for days on different geek items that I would want for my man cave, but I will save you the eye strain and contain myself (deep breaths).
Some of the best gift options for a basic man cave that many forget are mug or drinking options. These can be as simple as the little mugs you see at Target with Iron Man’s face- but there are far many more available that people fail to realize. We have composed a list of some of the best ones HERE should you want to go this route.
Additionally, there are a variety of lighting options that you could play with if you decide to go down that route. There is a Mario Chomper lamp that is creating a craze for all ages. Add that with a Professor Xavier X-Men chair and there is no stopping the geek powers you have created!
With so many options in both the sports and geek or nerd related genre, you may not have know where to start. We hope we have helped break down the possible routes for you to take and provided you a link to what we have available here.
