A Present You Need a Crowbar to Open? Behold, Man Crates!
Earlier this year we swooned over Broquets, bouquets for bros. This holiday season, the dudes have a new novelty gift to look forward to: Man Crates!
As the name suggests, this winning gift idea is a series of crates designed with dudes in mind. Every crate is shipped with a laser-etched crowbar… because that’s what you need to open the crate. How ridiculous (read: awesome) is that? Whether you’re shopping for a zombie survivalist, a bacon-obsessed carnivore, or a dapper gentleman, this site has a crate for you.
Don’t expect to find any lame nose-hair trimmers in these crates. As their Man Crates Manifesto states: We say ‘no’ to ugly neckties, aftershave, and executive trinkets. We don’t save wrapping paper, we don’t do ribbons.
We definitely know quite a few dudes that can get on board with that sentiment. Here are our three favorite Man Crates for giving this year.
The Bacon Crate ($60): For the dude who actually gets tears in his eyes at the promise of a new way to eat bacon, this crate is packed to the max with bacon everything. Each crate includes 2 flavors of bacon jerky, bacon popcorn, bacon salt, bacon peanut brittle, bacon sunflower seeds, and bacon popcorn. You might say… this little piggy went to market.
Zombie Survival Crate ($100): Obviously someone needs to protect us from the zombies. This is for the lone survivor who travels quickly and quietly, with all his tools at the ready. In this crate, you get a zombie survival guide, zombie flashlight (also known as a flashlight), first aid kit, duct tape, twinkies or spam, and, wait for it, a MACHETE. What?!
Retro Gamer Crate ($80): Ready to get like a million points with your geeky significant other? Forget about the Bottle Caps, Nerds, and Mike & Ikes — this is all about the Retro-Bit NES Console and two classic Nintendo games! Of course, the candy is pretty cool too.
All in all, we are definitely ordering a couple Man Crates for the dudes on our list. What about you? What other winning gifts for dudes should we bookmark? Talk to us in the comments below.
