Build The Ultimate Men’s Sanctuary With These Epic Man Cave Ideas
Man caves are a room designed by men, for men. Space is prioritised for manly hobbies, from playing video games, watching sports to woodworking. Man caves have so much room for activities. Man caves come with complete freedom. That’s why our man cave section is one of the most popular areas of our gifts for men section.
It’s no wonder it’s the dream of every Aussie bloke to have their very own man cave. But we’re not here to help you build any old man cave. We’re here to help you build the ultimate man cave.
Man caves can also be a peaceful sanctuary from wives, children and especially mothers-in-law. It’s not that men don’t love and cherish them, but they sometimes need space to recharge their own batteries—by draining their PlayStation controller’s batteries.
On the outside man caves can look like any other room. They’re often disguised as an extra bedroom, garage, basement or shed.
Men were made for man caves
There is a meat-eating, crude, rugged caveman inside all males. It’s buried deeper in some than others. A man cave is a place for men to get in touch with their masculine side. Men can watch sports, play video games, drink, enjoy hobbies and speak their mind with their mates without having to worry about offending the sensitive souls of today's politically correct world.
The ultimate cave of happiness
Men give nicknames to things they love. It’s why best mates aren’t called Richard. They become Richo, Richy or Dicky. Man caves are so loved they have been given many names; a masculine sanctuary, mancave, the shed, man land and testosterone territory. Technically, caves are tunnels that have an end. So if a man cave is a tunnel, what’s at the end of it? Happiness.
How can you recognise man cave at a glance?
If you look for the signs, it’s obvious. Here’s what to look for:
> All furniture points directly at the TV.
> It’s the messiest room in the house.
> Occasional yelling at an umpire can be heard.
> Walls are covered with posters of legendary men like Steve Waugh, and scantily clad women like Pamela Anderson.
> The refrigerator contains beer, meat, and more beer.
What to do if you stumble across a man cave?
Immediately you must ask yourself, have you been invited into the man cave? If you have, feel free to enter. However, leave your feelings and political correctness at the door to collect on your way out. If you have not been invited, DO NOT ENTER. I repeat, DO NOT ENTER. Man caves are a place to be respected. No matter what smell is coming from a man cave, man cave protocol dictates that you wait for permission before entering.
THE ESSENTIAL RULES FOR MAN CAVES
A man cave without rules is like a hungry chimp on a school bus; chaos. Laying some ground rules before inviting your buddies around is essential. Here are a few rules you can pick and choose from:
> The toilet seat stays up.
> The man cave owner controls the remote.
> No flowers and scented candles. If you want a plant—get a cactus. And if you need to cover an odour try cigars.
> Fart at will.
> When a sports game is on you may ask “What’s the score?” upon arrival. However, asking “Who’s playing?” is grounds for removal from the premises.
> A mini fridge or bar must be kept within the room.
> Junk food counts as nutrition.
> Drinking wine spritzers is grounds for immediate expulsion.
> No rom-coms allowed. Ever.
> A big TV is required.
> If it itches, scratch it.
> Disputes are settled by wrestling or paper, scissors, rock.
> The ultimate rule for any man cave, is the owner decides the rules. Their man cave ideas become the constitution. If you have man cave ideas, you can convert them into your own hard and fast rules.
