Shopping for personalized Christmas gifts for men can seem like a never-ending challenge. Year after year, you walk through electronics stores, athletic stores, men's department stores and every other man-friendly commercial destination searching for the perfect gift. Though the right item might feel elusive, don't make the mistake of over-thinking your approach.
Generally speaking, men are uncomplicated creatures - they love beer, electronic gadgets, cars, fire, meat and just about anything else that could be considered "manly." It's likely that the guy on your list will appreciate at least a few of those items. But, if your man is in the process of creating a man cave, we suggest helping him build his dream at-home bar. Scope out personalized gifts for men and kitschy bar details when filling his stocking this season.
Let Him Stake His Claim With Personalized Bar Signs
Generations of men have swapped stories and proven their drinking prowess at the bar, and no man cave is complete without a suitable bar area. How else can he enjoy a few brews with the guys while shooting pool or watching the game? Adding a personalized bar or pub sign will help him take the man cave to the next level (and provide you with a great gift option).
Treat Him to Some Seasonal Beer Accessories
With your man's name proudly displayed by the bar, consider personalizing the rest of his drinking paraphernalia. Finishing touches like seasonal beer mugs (perfect for winter brews), promotional beer lights or posters will make him proud of his home bar. Come January, you can either pack up these festive gifts to return the bar to its normal décor or leave them up through March for a winter-lodge vibe.
Does He Want a Western-Themed Bar? Yes Ma'm
Did your guy always want to be a cowboy when he grew up? Treat him to a few Western-themed bar decorations. A lucky horseshoe can be hung over the bar or the entryway to his man cave - ahem excuse us - "saloon."
Want some real authenticity? Outfit his man cave with saloon-style doors. Trust us - these will keep him more entertained than a 3-year-old with a cardboard box.
For something in a lower price bracket that's equally entertaining, opt for a Western bar accessory like a leather beer holster - it will put a little swagger in his step (though we guess you could also attribute that to the beer). The holster holds his beer bottle for him, so that both hands are free for full-on partying.
