Unique Man Cave Gifts for 2021

Introduction

It’s the same every year, searching in vain to find that perfect gift for someone that you feel has everything. That’s the problem theses days, if we want something we just go out and buy it. Unlike years ago, when we were so much more patient and waited for a birthday or other celebration of some sort to receive it as a gift.

So, for that person you need to buy for, you need to find something unique, indifferent or just plain unusual. This is probably easier than you think but to give you an idea, we’ve listed a few items that may inspire or remind you of what’s available out there. So, check out our list of unique man cave gifts to see if you can pluck out an item that will suit.

Man-cave items are popular and always welcomed by the recipient. They’re also a great gift idea as a Kris Kringle present at work Xmas functions. Whatever the occasion, here’s our list of products under $20 and over $20. I hope you find something they haven’t got!

Unique Man Cave Gifts Under $20

#1 - Premium Knitted Heat Resistant BBQ Gloves

Customer Reviews

4.8

Pro’s

  • Full wrist protection
  • Protects from extreme heat
  • Anti-slip strips for a tight grip
  • Machine washable

Con’s

  • One-size-fits-all.

Every great man-cave consists of a great adjoining BBQ area and that’s where you’ll appreciate this gift. A pair of heat resistant gloves for protection when cooking up a storm on the BBQ. How many times have you been the master chef grilling away, when all of a sudden, the fat juices start spitting at you, raining burning drops on your hands. Annoying hey. Painful hey!

Well, NO more. Your friend with the man-cave BBQ will love these premium oven gloves that can be used for grilling your favorite meats. The quality of these gloves is amazing and will withstand temperatures of up to 932℉(500℃). They also have a cotton and poly lining which will keep your hands cooler and prevent them from perspiring. Anti-slip strips also help with grasping your BBQ implements.

At 12.2 inches in length, they are one-size fits-all and extend over your wrists for added protection. This is where many burns can happen so wrist protection is a must. You’ll like the fact they come with a hanging rope, so your user can simply hang them in the man-cave after use. They are machine washable, so I’d suggest washing after use before hanging them up to dry.

And guess what, they double up as a pair of wood log fire gloves! You know that wood fire your mate has in his man-cave, use these gloves to stoke and replace wood on the fire. In fact, anything else that requires precautionary protection can do with this pair of heat resistant gloves.

Great features include:

  • Heat resistant up to 932℉(500℃).
  • Anti-slip strips
  • Machine washable
  • Wrist protection

Finally, a pair of heat resistant gloves that do not resemble mittens! Perfect as a gift for the man-cave owner. These have sold extremely well with 130 customers rating these 4.8-stars out of 5.

The only downside we found with this pair of gloves is the fact it’s one-size fits-all. They should have a smaller & larger size as not all hands are the same size. These would fit most people with average size hands.

#2 - 'In Dog Beers I've Only Had One' - Vintage Wood Sign

Customer Reviews

4.8

Pro’s

  • Damn funny!
  • Made locally
  • Hanging brackets

Con’s

  • Some say too small

We all love a bit of humor and a hilarious beer sign to complement your bar is a perfect accessory. You know it feels good when your mates come around and get a giggle out of your new bar decor. This sign ‘IN DOG BEERS I’ve Only Had One’ is a classic sign that will have your guests in stitches.

You’ll find fixing it on a wall is simple, as it comes with hanging brackets. Alternatively you can leave it sitting perched on your bar next to your scotch whiskey decanter.

Having a sign hand made in the USA by a local artist also helps and the craftsmanship is pure quality. Made with solid cedar timber it measures 11.5″ x 3.5″ x .75″ (292mm x 89mm x 19mm).

As a gift for a friend or family member, this is a unique yet simple sign that will put a smile on your dial. Especially if you’re a beer & dog lover, this is a bit of a hoot.

You don’t even require a man-cave to hang a sign like this, but it would certainly help. It would also look the part in a pool room, log cabin or even outside areas.

Great features include:

  • Hand made in USA
  • Authentic weathered look
  • Hanging brackets
  • Just damn funny!

With a great star rating of 4.8, it’s been well received from customers that have bought it.

The largest criticism is the fact that the sign is too small so be aware of the size before you purchase. Most customers have not complained about this at all, just the odd one.

  • eBook, not paper book.

So, your hubby’s BBQ is the ultimate toy to complement his man-cave but sometimes you, being the good wife would like something a bit more, eloquent. Like using a slow cooker to perfectly stew a pulled pork. But he still deserves the cooking credit (like when man cooks a BBQ!) so he needs to be seen dishing up your juicy pulled pork.

But not with kitchen utensils, that’s not good enough. A man needs Man claws! So, check out these awesome meat shredding claws which will give the man in your house a heartening boost whilst giving his mates claw envy!

Some customers rated these 4 stars because they didn’t appreciate that the book is actually an eBook meaning it’s digital and you need to download it. Others we’re a little concerned about the seals of the mallet but mentioned it would just require closer cleaning.

Okay, now we’re talking! Your man (or mate for that matter) works hard on his man-cave or other jobs around the house and often works with a beer in hand. However, you do need to place your beer down to get stuff done. The problem here though, is forgetting were you’ve place your beer!

That’s where this beauty comes in. You’ll never misplace your beer again with this beverage holster attached to you, everywhere you go. It’s made from premium leather so looks the part and is extremely strong.

You’ll like the snap closure on the bottom to keep the beer from slipping through, genius! The cowboy style beer holder simply attaches to your belt for hands-free convenience. It’s lightweight due to being made from soft genuine leather and has a water-repellant surface.

If you’ve got a party of some sort (Xmas, birthday etc.) this is a great unique idea that will not only please the recipient, but you’ll find everyone will want one!

Even those that do not drink beer can benefit as you can obviously insert any drink you like into the holster.

  • Don’t come as a pair (just buy 2!)

Does your friend with the man-cave have a good sense of humor? Well, they better get one when you buy them this classy wine glass which is personalized for your 30-year recipient. It shows off a brilliantly funny inscription with the year 1988, 30 years ago for this year’s celebration.

Indicating the age of the person intended, and stating they are ‘Aged to Perfection’ and of a ‘Vintage’ era, this wine glass will fill the room with laughter. Also great as a pair for a 30th year anniversary.

Personalized gifts like this can be so memorable, this will not be one of those presents that will be put straight in the bin or passed onto someone else! When thought has gone into a gift like this, you will see it displayed for years to come.

It’s also a glass that the recipient can use as it’s a fully functioning, classically elegant, piece of glassware. A stemless wineglass is a gift for either a male or female, wine doesn’t discriminate!

The glass is made from the highest quality and fits a capacity of 15 ounces. With a wide base and smooth rim, any user will really enjoy their favorite tipple.

With links to other celebratory years also, these are a very special gift for the intended one.

#6 - Large Cooking Fork Tool for BBQ Grilling

Customer Reviews

4.8

Pro’s

  • 11 Inches in length
  • 3 Available colors
  • Multiple uses
  • 200% wider than a normal fork

Con’s

  • Have to buy a second for serving salad.

Whoa, have you ever seen a tool like this! Well, yes, you’ve seen the smaller version in standard cutlery, but not this man-cave size! It’s a beauty isn’t it, large enough to stab a whole joint of pork.

You’ll love the size which is big enough to flip steaks, turn chickens or delicately lift fish or other meats out of the BBQ and on to your plate. It has a multitude of purposes including using it to hold meat when carving. You could even purchase a second one and use them as salad servers, very unusual and unique.

You will be astounded with this 11-inch giant, as it’s over 200% wider that a standard fork and 50% longer! This will make your man feel like ‘Tim the Tool Man’! It’s the ultimate gift for the cooking bloke!

The smooth to touch handle is made of tactile rubber and comes in 3 colors, black, red and green. You will also notice that a hole is pierced through the handle, ideal for hanging your fork when not in use.

There’s not much need for tongs if you have a ‘Big Fork’ as it can handle all the necessary BBQ turning. I must say, this is an ideal gift for any occasion and not just for a man-cave. They’d be great inside for serving from buffets or platters, and can you imagine serving spaghetti!

And just watch, keep one at your place and you will not find anyone walk past and NOT pick it up. It’s just so hard to resist.

Great features include:

  • 200% wider than standard fork
  • 11 inches long
  • 3 colors
  • Multiple uses

This should really be a 5-star rating (instead of 4.8) as the only customer that has given it a 4-star rating loved the fork! Go figure.

Great reviews, great product. The only problem is that you’ll have to purchase a second one to use them as salad servers.

#9 - Sports Bar Beer Keg Tap Handle

Customer Reviews

4.8

Pro’s

  • Chalkboard for labelling beer
  • Engraving on one or two sides
  • Natural Walnut
  • 8″ Long

Con’s

  • Chalk can possibly rub off from hand pouring

Do the kegs behind your bar change with the different brews that you craft? Afterall, nobody drinks the same beer all the time, do they? Okay, some might but most don’t. So, you need to differentiate the beer on offer. How do you know which tap consumes which brew?

This is where these beer keg handles come in handy. Ideal for connecting to your existing faucets, each tap handle comes with a chalk board area for you to write which brew name. For instance, let’s say you brew up a storm of craft beer and name it ‘Nudges Best Brew’. Simply abbreviate it on your chalkboard area to ‘NBB’ or ‘Nudges’. This way you’ll know exactly what’s in the tap when pouring.

You’re mates that come over to watch the game and have a few beers can see exactly what they are getting, and if you had a 4-tap faucet kegerator, you can try all four and know which beer is which.

There’s a number of different styles and sizes and even a few peculiar tap handles. Each handle has the standard 3/8 ” – 16 UNC threads. This is the standard size in the US.

This tap handle is made of Walnut timber, weighs 0.45 pounds and has a laser engraved skull featured on the wood.

Another great idea for a birthday, Father’s day or Xmas which is perfect you a home bar, kegerator or even a soda maker!

Great features include:

  • Natural Walnut timber
  • One or Two sided engraved
  • Approximately 8″Long X 2″ Wide X 1″ Thick
  • Chalkboard tap

With over 10 different styles available, you may choose to buy a couple for your dual tap system.

The only criticism is the when pulling beers, the chalk may rub off depending on how you hold the tap handle. So just write it again!

Customer Reviews

  • Large sized meat injector
  • Full injector kit
  • Aluminum free

Con’s

? Only 1 year warranty

How would you love to be able to inject flavors into your joints of meat when going into the oven or BBQ? Not only a great gift for the male chef but anyone that loves to experiment with food.

Do you find that when you marinade your chickens or roast turkeys, the inside is still a little flavorless and dry? This is because the outer fractions benefit from your marinating whilst the inside does not.

Well you can change all that with a Meat Injector! Yep, I never knew such a thing existed until coming across this awesome set. Having used it personally, it creates a melt-in-your-mouth juicy flavor deep inside the meat. I find this so good for a BBQ.

Professional chefs use these, how did you think they create better roasts than you! Your friends and family will be excited to try your turkey, and then amazed at the flavor.

Made by Premiala, you know you’ll be purchasing the best quality product that produces great performance.

You’ll receive a nice gift box which includes not only the main meat injector, but 3 different sized needles for various types or marinades and sizes of meat. You’ll also get 2 needle cleaning brushes, 5 spare silicon o-rings and an eBook to guide you through the injecting process. It’s the ultimate gift displayed as a nice boxed set.

Do away with cheap plastic syringes and get the absolute best. You’ll find the difference is huge, it just works as expected. It’s also very easy to clean up afterwards. You’ll like the fact it’s ALUMINUM-FREE and made with 100% food-safe 304-grade stainless steel.

Great features include:

  • Aluminum free
  • Full seasoning injector kit
  • 3 various sized injecting needles
  • Gift boxed

#11 - Myron Mixon Pitmaster 3 in 1 Grill Tool

Customer Reviews

4.8

Pro’s

  • 3-in-1 tool
  • 8-inch blade
  • Non-slip grip

Con’s

  • No protective sleve. (Other options do include this)

Have you ever seen a knife like this before? No, it’s not a fishing knife for gutting the trout you’ve just caught. It’s a 3-in-1 BBQ knife that allows you to flip food when on the grill, slice your meat or other foods when on a chopping board and best of all, it’s a bottle opener for a hard-earned thirst.

How many times have you been cooking the BBQ and need another beer. Your mate brings you a beer and expects you to take the cap off, but you don’t have a bottle opener! Well now you do, no more complaints sending your mate back to beer fridge for the bottle opener.

This versatile knife has an 8” precision sharp blade adjoining the 7” non-slip comfortable handle. It’s made from high-carbon stainless-steel and will be your go-to tool whenever at the BBQ. My advice with this tool, keep out of the reach of children. Look at that knife tip!
There’s no special washing requirements, simply wash in warm, soapy water.

You’ll also notice that there are other options to buy a full kit or various size blades.

Great features include:

  • Non-slip grip
  • 3-in-1 tool
  • 8-inch blade
  • Bottle opener

The only negative is that it doesn’t come with a protective sleeve. With a blade like this you would probably expect one.

Other than that, the reviews are great giving a 4.8-star rating.
