What is a man cave, essentially? It’s a designated area – a media room, basement or spare room – that serves only one purpose: As a sanctuary for the man of the house. It’s where he can gather together all his gadgets and grown-up toys.
While the origin of the term remains somewhat unknown, some say that it was first used by John Gray in Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. It’s also worth mentioning that “man cave” has received a lot of hate, with some asking people to stop using it and bury it for good.
Man caves are usually used for getting together with other men to talk, watching sporting events, playing poker or pool, holding beer or wine tastings, and other social bonding activities. Below is a list of luxurious items that what would make for great gifts for a man cave. Check out the post right here for more gift ideas.
What’s a man cave without a proper booze dispenser? This log dispenser works best for man caves that have a more natural – cave-y – feeling to them. Since it’s handcrafted from urban harvested Ohio hardwood trees, no two dispensers are alike. They are also hand covered with a water-born clear finish.
The new and improved version of the liquor dispenser comes with a better proofed container and it accommodates more types of bottles.
There’s no better gift for a man who’s always been a great fan of Star Wars. This lightsaber is an elegant and collectible weapon, mimicking an instrument of destruction with sublime touches. The magical touch of a professional blade smith created the hilt, with attention to every detail of its construction.
This saber can be described in three short words: a work of art. Thanks to its elegant handle and grenade V section, this LED saber makes for effortless mock dueling.
Looking for man cave gadgets? This Home Cinema projector would be perfect for a man cave that doubles as a home cinema. It delivers bright, full-HD widescreen entertainment. Epson projectors, while also portable and user-friendly, are also known for their vibrant images.

Men can be rather undecided when it comes to man cave furniture – why bother with a lot of it? That’s where this large bean bag chair comes in handy. It comes in various colors so it can compliment even the strangest man cave themes. The bean bag is a unique piece of furniture that will allow him – and his wife/girlfriend, if she’s allowed in the man cave – to enjoy the home theatre setup.
Even though they are called bean bags chairs, they are not filled with beans or Styrofoam pellets. Instead, he’ll find it extremely comfortable to sit in “the softest, highest quality shredded foam” out there.

If you have always thought that pool should be played in style, then buy him this solid wood piece of art. It works best in a man cave with a sleek design, where a lot of steel items – such as shelves or furniture – are visible. If he’s a Game of Thrones fan, he will dig the rough finish and the antique look. Comes with black felt; overhead lights are not included in the Amazon offer.
While modern video games are certainly fun, nothing compares with the vintage of an arcade machine. While you used to have to go to the arcades to play your favorite games, now you can do it from the comfort of your own man cave.
Help the man you’re buying this Ms. Pac-Man machine for relive the joys of his youth (or childhood). This arcade gaming cabinet has been design to identically reproduce the original coin-operated version. The next-gen machine comes a permanently deactivated coin door.
In addition to the two original games, it also includes four hidden bonus games: Speedy Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man, Rapid Fire Galaga, and Speedy Pac-Man. The vintage feel is also emphasized by the fact that all the original arcade controls have been reproduced, as well as the original artwork.
Is he a fan of baseball? Then his man cave needs this signed baseball. It’s a man cave piece of décor guaranteed to make his friends envious every time they come over to watch baseball together. For maximum effect, make sure you encase the ball in a glass cube.

These fancy speaker drivers would make the ideal gift for any audiophile with a man cave. Designed and manufactured by Focal, in France, these Aria 905 bookshelf loudspeakers are more powerful than they look.
Despite their small size, they are capable of reproducing very natural sound worthy of much bigger loudspeakers. The manufacturer recommends them for rooms – or attics, basements – measuring 10m2 or less (107ft2). The ideal listening distance? Just 2m.
The ultra-compact hi-fi loudspeaker comes with a 5” woofer with Flax sandwich cones, which helps it provide a very high-def sound. The front vent, in addition to the built-in wall mount, makes it an easy task to wall-mount the speaker without effort.
