10 Luxurious Christmas Man Cave Essentials
Are you struggling to find man cave gift ideas for the special guy in your life? Or perhaps you are that special man and you’re struggling to give your loved one’s gift ideas? If so, then this article is for you. We have compiled ten unique man cave gift ideas, from the affordable to the extravagant, perfect for any man cave owner.
1. Draft beer on tap
There’s nothing quite like the pleasure that comes from pouring your own draft beer in the comfort of your man cave. The four-pint pourer from Krups is our favourite draught beer tap. Just feed a rubber tube through to the tap and you’ll be able to get a real brew in seconds without having to go to the pub.
The Krups tap cools your beer to just two degrees and it pours beautifully, although getting the perfect head may take a bit of practice. It’s also sleek, stylish and very compact, with the same footprint as a four-slot toaster.
If you prefer a more classic style beer tap, your man cave needs a 1-way metal beer tower. This addition is not just a perfect gift; it's an essential one for any beer enthusiast. This sleek and sturdy beer tower not only adds a touch of authenticity to your home bar but also enhances your beer-drinking experience.
Crafted from high-quality materials, the 1-way metal beer tower is built to last. If your man cave has an outside area, this metal beer tower becomes even more indispensable. As you and your friends bask in the outdoors in the summer months, savouring the best of British beer, the tower stands tall as a testament to your dedication to quality beverages.
2. Whiskey Stones
How do you chill a drink that’s room temperature? One option is to add ice cubes, but that’s a big faux pas if you’re a fine whiskey connoisseur as it dilutes the drink. So, what can you use instead? Whiskey stones are small cubes of natural stone or stainless steel that you can store in the freezer and then add to whiskey, bourbon, or scotch to chill your drink without diluting it. At £10-£15, they’re the perfect price for a stocking filler.
3. Smart remote
When you’re firmly in chillout mode, you want to move around as little as possible, which is exactly where this smart remote can help. A handy universal smart remote lets you do all of the usual channel hopping, but it can also function as a remote control for your lights, thermostat, music system, games console and a whole lot more. Pictured is the Logitech Harmony Ultimate, which costs £179.99, but other (cheaper) options are available.
4. The ultimate golf simulator
If 2023 has been particularly kind to you - a lottery win would probably do it - then this golf simulator is perfect to turn your mancave into a game room. Of course, it helps if you like golf, but if you do, then the Optishot2 Ultimate Golf Simulator Package is the ultimate man cave toy. It comes with a projector, software that lets you play 15 courses, a lush green driving mat, a high-performance gaming laptop and everything else you need to never leave your man cave again.
5. Whiskey barrel dustbin
Every good man cave needs a bin, but while bins are extremely functional, they’re also a bit of an eyesore. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. This whiskey barrel bin can add a touch of class to your waste disposal and help to keep your man cave looking spick and span. The barrel pictured is a solid oak recycled bin with a removable lid, but there are also plenty of other options out there that will be part of the furniture.
6. Barrington watch winder
As you’ll probably know, it’s very easy to lose track of time in your man cave, but not if you have a precision watch winder from Barrington. This compact and stylish automatic single watch winder offers an elegant and efficient way to keep your timepiece wound when you’re not wearing it. Available in a range of striking colours, you’re sure to find a watch winder to suit your man cave.
7. Poker Table or Poke Table Topper
Man caves are spaces dedicated to relaxation and recreation, and a poker table will fit seamlessly into this environment. It will offer a fantastic avenue for social gatherings and friendly competitions, making it an excellent addition to any man cave's entertainment repertoire.
Beyond the gameplay, a poker table comes with a range of accessories like a high-quality poker set, adding a touch of sophistication to the space. Whether it's a casual game night with friends or a solo pursuit, a poker set is perfect for man caves, bringing excitement and camaraderie.
8. Wooden Man Cave Sign
A wooden man cave sign is the ideal gift for any man cave enthusiast. A custom-made sign allows you to add a unique touch by personalising it with the recipient's name or a special message, making it a truly one-of-a-kind gift. Not only does it serve as a personalised gift, but it also adds a distinctive decorative piece to the man cave's decor.
Crafted from high-quality wood, these signs are not only durable but also exude a rustic, timeless charm that complements the cosy atmosphere of any man cave. Whether it's proudly hanging on the wall or displayed prominently on the door, a wooden man cave sign is a great gift idea. At £20, they’re also the perfect price for a stocking filler.
9. Mini Fridge or Beverage Cooler
A Mini Fridge or Beverage Cooler is not just a functional addition to a man cave; it's a gateway to convenience and refreshment. These compact appliances are like a treasure chest of treats, always at arm's reach for when the man cave enthusiast needs a quick pick-me-up.
Stocked with their favourite beverages, from chilled craft beers and sodas to energy drinks and refreshing bottled water, a mini fridge or beverage cooler ensures that thirst is always quenched without having to make the trek to the kitchen.
Beyond beverages, these coolers can also house an array of delectable snacks, ensuring that hunger pangs during movie marathons or intense gaming sessions are easily satisfied. With adjustable temperature settings, they can even preserve fine wines or specialty cheeses for those moments when a touch of sophistication is desired.
10. Retro Arcade Machine
Retro Arcade Machines are a delightful testament to their versatility, as they come in all shapes and sizes, catering to the diverse tastes and available spaces of man cave enthusiasts. Whether you have a spacious dedicated gaming room or a cosy corner, there's an arcade machine to suit your needs.
For those with limited space, tabletop arcade machines are a perfect choice. Compact and portable, these smaller replicas can sit atop a table or countertop, bringing the arcade experience to even the tiniest nooks. They may offer a scaled-down selection of classic games, but their convenience and charm make them an attractive option.
As you fire up the Retro Arcade Machine, the familiar sights and sounds of classic games like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Street Fighter, and Donkey Kong come to life. The joy of gripping those iconic arcade joysticks and mashing those colourful buttons is unparalleled. It's an experience that transcends generations, uniting players of all ages in the universal language of gaming.
