When You Need Man Cave Gifts
The kids are in bed. While I wait for my husband to join me in the living room, I scroll through my newsfeed to catch up on the day’s unimportant happenings – that’s what you do on social media, right?!
It’s hard not to notice the Father’s Day ads filling every ad spot on my computer screen – although the holiday is several weeks away. There’s the usual selection of tired personalized “#1 Dad” paraphernalia and office supplies. (Insert eye roll – the kids can’t possibly give their dad yet another tie and personalized pen – not again, not ever again.)
Where is my husband? The dog is now snoring on her fluffy bed and it’s time for our date night on the couch in front of the TV. This is how most married couples with kids do date night these days, RIGHT?! You know the kind of date night where the two of you are in an unofficial race to fall asleep first.
I finally find my husband in the den, his office, or rather his “man-cave”.
When we moved into the house a year ago, we focused first on the kids’ rooms, then the common areas and before we got to the den we ran out of decorating steam and inspiration.
The “man cave” has since become our catch-all area for anything we need to hide from visitors, to give the optical illusion that we keep a tidy house. There are piles of papers, random pieces of furniture and four very blank walls.
As I open the door to his man-cave, it hits me: Father’s Day is around the corner!
We should spruce up his corner of the house and make it a bit less Neanderthal-like and maybe a bit more his style.
Maybe, just maybe the stale smell of empty chip bags and tired running shoes will become a thing of the past too – a girl can hope, right?!
The next day, I go online to get decorating ideas, when I come across the Fathead website.
When shopping online, it’s easier, faster and cheaper to find a one-stop shop than having to complete transactions at several different sites. The cost of shipping alone makes it worthwhile to shop at one place.
Thankfully, Fathead is just that – a one-stop shop, especially for all your Father’s Day (and man cave gifts!)
Ladies, even if you aren’t planning a man-cave gift or spruce up, take it from me, Fathead has SOMETHING for every man/dad on your shopping list – and for every budget!
Our Man Cave Gift Choices:
My husband is an alumni and die-hard fan of University of Washington. Normally, I wouldn’t agree to wall decorations commemorating a football team, however this IS his man-cave, after all.
When the vinyl decal arrived in the Fathead branded box, I was blown away at the thickness and quality of the material. The extra vinyl decals that came with the big “W” were an added bonus. These wall decals will definitely last for years to come.
The wall decal was easy to install and move, the latter we learned after changing our minds about the best wall for it. Without leaving any marks, we were able to reposition the wall decals a few times, before we settled on the final location.
We have an unspoken tradition in our family that my husband gives me a canvas print of a family photo for Christmas or my birthday. These family pictures are by far my most treasured decorations in our whole house. Knowing how much I value our canvases, I had one made specifically for my husband’s office.
I chose one of my favorite pictures from our Christmas card photo shoot, cropped it and had a 24” x 36” custom mural print made. The result was nothing less than stunning!
Like I said, we have several photo canvases throughout the house, from various vendors. The canvas from Fathead is by far the best quality, solid construction and the most vibrant colors.

If the man on your shopping list is a medical professional, or just has a weird interest in medical charts, these wall decals are all the rage. Not only are they anatomically correct, but they are made on a dry-erase surface. Perfect for a medical office and hands-on explanations.
What a fun way to show off your team colors and your street address at the same time. This is a one of a kind gift idea – perfect for the homeowner who otherwise has everything else!
While you are decorating the front of your house, why not add this fun mailbox adhesive. This is a must-have for the die-hard NFL fan in your family – and it’s removable, for the times when his team doesn’t perform well ha ha.
