Every man is different. In the same way, every man cave will be different. Having said that, however, there are certain absolute essentials no functioning man cave should ever be without. Whether you are decking out your own man cave or looking for a gift for the special man in your life, check these must-have items out.
An Entertainment System
Technology is essential for every man cave. Every great entertainment system starts with speakers. You want to be able to play your tunes, your videos, your sports, and your games at a satisfyingly loud volume. Next, deck out your system with a state-of-the-art flat screen digital television and cable system so you can catch all the games. There is a mountain of options for entertainment systems but knowing what you are going to be doing is essential. Do you want to play video games in peace or are you looking for a pad to invite the guys over to watch the game? Tailor your man cave to fit your specific, manly needs.
Beverages and Snacks
It goes without saying that a man cave needs to be fully stocked with snacks and beverages. Since no one else gets a say but the man of the cave, you can enjoy your favorite soft drinks, adult beverages, and tasty treats in peace. As well, you will want to be sure you have a refrigerator and (if needed) a freezer, as well as a bar area and some mixers so making drinks is a breeze.
A man cave is all about relaxation and paramount of this is you man-throne. Having a comfy recliner, a soft couch, and a selection of seats for the guys to hang out in is a must (having them match is optional).
Because it is your man cave, there is no reason for anyone to question what you love. They are guest in your fortress of solitude and must bask in the glory that is your collection. You might consider any memorabilia that interests you. The more extravagant, the better your man cave will feel.
You’re a man. You need the tools for the job, but you also need a place to put those tools. Whether your preference leans towards the latest high-tech tools or Makita parts and accessories, nothing says “man cave” like a diverse selection of power tools to show that you really are capable of looking like you know what your doing.
Games are a must in a man cave. You might prefer poker or blackjack, darts or a pool table, video games, or some combination thereof. You will want some folding chairs and tables too for group gaming.
With these six man cave essentials, you can look forward to many days and nights relaxing in your own private space.
