There are men, and then there are manly men. For that grizzly, man in your life you’ll have to cater your gifts to his tastes. If you’re lost on the kinds of things he’d like, we’re here to help. Here are some of the best gifts you can give a guy that men want to be.
Monogrammed Steak Brand
A true grillmaster leaves his mark on his meat so everyone knows who cooked their steak to perfection. This monogrammed brander makes it easy to char your initials right onto that sirloin, giving it a very distinct look. This is hand-forged out of iron, the same way you’d make it if steak branders was your business.
Zombie Survival Tool
In any zombie horror flick there’s always one man that steps up to answer the call, and when he does he’s usually brandishing a weapon of some sort. This survival tool can smash open windows, split zombie heads, and chop down a tree for kindling all in one.
Sex Panther Cologne
Take a page out of Brian Fantana’s notebook and wear Sex Panther cologne in order to attract the ladies. It’s pulled right from Anchorman and is officially licensed, so you know it will work every time 60% of the time. Unlike in the movie this actually smells good.
Stone Drink Dispenser
There’s a certain elegance to stone, maybe it speaks to our time spent in the Stone Age, or maybe it just seems like it will last forever. With this drink dispenser you’re getting ancient looking reliability in a modern day liquor dispenser. This is cut right from cobbled granite for years of use.
Plaid Flannel Shirt
Plaid flannel is pretty much the unwritten fashion staple of today’s burly man. They go great with beards, beers, chopping wood, and anything outdoorsy. This offering by L.L. Bean is a true classic, and is well made for years of regular use. You can even add monogramming to make it one-of-a-kind.
Craft Beer & Snacks Basket
Most manly men won’t go within 10 feet of a gift basket, but they’re willing to make an exception for this one. That’s because it’s filled to the brim with an assortment of specialty beers and delicious snacks, enough to get through a poker night with the fellas or a long weekend solo.
John Wayne Ceramic Mug
John Wayne was a man’s man, and there’s nothing cooler than having The Duke on your coffee mug. He’s captured in a classic pose, in full western garb, and shooting a look that let’s everyone know who’s in charge. Aside from that it’s microwave and dishwasher safe, just like Mr. Wayne would have demanded.
This hatchet has been dubbed unbreakable, so he can swing as hard as he wants with no worries of a broken handle or blade. That comes in handy when you’re splitting wood and on a roll, you don’t want to wonder if your ax can keep up with you. This features an ultra sharp bland for more one-strike splits.
Bricktown Jerky Sampler
What’s better than beef jerky? More beef jerky! This pack has them covered with all of the dehydrated meat snacks they can handle, with not just beef but also turkey and pork thrown in for good measure. It comes in a nice gift packet which even the most macho guy can stop to appreciate.
Stanley Classic Flask
This old school flask is like taking a page out of history, but is still one of the best ways to sneak a swig when the mood strikes. It’s got a wide mouth on it, so he’ll have an easier time getting a proper drink from it, not like those sissy thin mouth flasks.
Grenade Screwdriver Set
What man doesn’t want his screwdriver set to resemble a weapon? In this case it’s a hand grenade that opens up to reveal a pretty deluxe screwdriver set, complete with both types of heads, plus more. Once the project is finished it all gets wrapped back up into grenade form.
Beerd Can Beer Cozy
This beer cozy gives his beer a beard, so he can drink it in style. When a bearded man drinks beer it only makes sense that the beer should be bearded as well. This gift makes great photos as well, and is sure to keep the beer cold, as beards do a good job of insulating the face.
Mounted Squirrel Head
Small game hunting is nearly as manly as the real thing, and this mounted squirrel is proof that some good things come in small packages. But in actuality, no squirrels were harmed in the making of this wall mount, so no need to call PETA, just a fun gift for a hunting enthusiast with a personality.
Wild Man Beard Conditioning Oil
Beards can be a real eyesore, but the manliest of men will sport them because it’s the most rugged look you can get. You can help them soften things up a bit with this leave-in conditioner that is designed to make it silky and smooth. Keep the rugged look, lose the prickly feel.
Dogfish Head Beer Soap
Beer loving men will also love the idea of cleansing their body with the goodness of beer. Basically you can’t go wrong with anything beer-related for a manly man, because the two go hand in hand. This is made from a hand-crafted IPA so don’t be surprised to find him smelling himself all day.
Balls of Steel Whiskey Drink Coolers
Sound off like you’ve got a pair! These whiskey coolers won’t melt like ice cubes do, they’ll just cool off your whiskey like they’re supposed to. You may have seen whiskey stones before, which are a similar idea, but these send the message that you’ve got what it takes to be a man.
ManHands Manly Scented Soap
The soaps come in an array of interesting scents like Fresh Cut Grass, Bacon, and even the leathery smell of a baseball glove. This leaves ordinary hand soaps in the dust, at least when it comes to giving your hands a manly aroma. Also try Beer, Pizza, and Butter Popcorn varieties.
Merica, [email protected]#$ Yeah T-Shirt
If your man has been known to walk around the house singing the classic song from Team America, they’ll love this shirt which features the refrain in a cool design. It makes for a fun shirt while on a bar crawl, and is sure to illicit a response from anyone that reads it and recognizes it.
Duct Tape Bi Fold Wallet
Does he use duct tape for everything? If so he’ll get a kick out of this duct tape wallet. It’s lightweight, thin, and extra durable. It’s entirely made out of duct tape, except for the metal grommet which can attach to a chain connected to his pants so it never gets lost or stolen.
Bring the unmistakable smell of a campfire to a cubicle near you with campfire cologne. It’s a way to infuse yourself with the smell of the great outdoors using true-to-life smoke rather than a phoney liquid. You can take the man out of the forest, but you can’t take the forest out of the man.
