1. Man Candles
Forget the same old flowery, sweet-scented candles for women. Men need Man Candles, featuring familiar, earthy scents such as dirt, campfire, sawdust, coffee and more.
Product Review : This candle is awesome. I bought this “mandle” for my home, and I could not be happier. Smells delicious, comes in a beautiful glass, and the color of the wax is very cool. I shopped around different places looking for a good man candle and finally pulled the trigger on this one because it turns into a whiskey glass when I’m done with the candle. Get it from Amazon for $24.99
2. Big Face T-Shirts
Make a bold statement no one will be able to miss. These Big Face T-shirts feature your favorite animal boldly emblazoned on a vibrantT-shirt.
Product Review : With my aging and growing belly (should have reached full-size by now since I am in my sixties), this tee is absolutely outstanding in my opinion. The belly adds a true 3D look to the face, beyond the photo itself, and the grandkids go wild when I wear it. I also have the Pug and Hamster ones, and they, too are loved by kids. Get it from Amazon for $7.09
3. Sex Panther Cologne
It’s the officially licensed cologne from Anchorman. 60% of the time, it works every time, so pick some up as a gift for your man friend and let the hunt begin.
Product Review : My brother loves the Anchorman movies, so my sister decided to buy this for him for Christmas. Let me tell you: IT SMELLS SO GOOD!! The delivery was fast and the bottle is really cool, too. If you’re wondering if this might just be a crappy, gimmick-y cologne, don’t worry. As well as serving its novelty purposes, it seriously smells manly and nice. Get it from Amazon for $40.65
4. Bluetooth Gloves
For those colder climates, these comfy gloves come with Bluetooth technology that lets you take your phone calls without having to take your gloves off. They’re great for winter sports, camping, travel, and other cold weather activities.
Product Review : I did have to get two pairs of these gloves, because the first pair didn’t work. We got them connected to a phone once, but then they stopped working. I had them plugged in for hours and they seemed to be charging, but they wouldn’t turn on at all. Get it from Amazon for $39.95
Who better to take fashion tips from than the most awesome bro on television? The suit pajamas worn by Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother make a perfect gift for fans of the show and awesome bros everywhere.
Product Review : My husband loves the show “How I met your mother.” When I first saw these, I knew I had to buy them! The fabric is so soft and silkie. My husband says the pants are very comfortable, and he looks pretty great in them too! The only downside is that the pants and shirt fit great, but the jacket is a bit to small. Get it from Amazon for $99.95
6. Fatboy Bean Bag
Fatboy Bean Bags are a more sophisticated version of the beanbags he remembers from his childhood. They’re fun, functional, and completely comfortable, making them a great gift for college dorms, bachelor pads, and mancaves.
Product Review : I saw a Fatboy bean bag chair and ordered one but also tried the ottoman for another chair. The ottoman size is perfect and the color is subtle with a slight sheen to it. Very good for houses with kids and animals. I use my bean bag Fatboy for a comfortable, easy to move chair in my bedroom. They are super tough and durable while at the same time attractive and comfortable. Get it from Amazon for $210.73
7. Nubrella Hands Free Umbrella
Finally, a hands free umbrella that keeps you dry and warm without occupying your hands. The umbrella rests over your head and upper torso, leaving your hands free for cell phones, briefcases, and hailing a cab.
Product Review : Gave this as a birthday gift to my boss who adores fishing. At first it got a laugh, but then he saw how handy this would be! Now he doesn’t have to stop fishing just because of a little rain shower. A very practical item! Get it from Amazon for $14.99
8. Beardski Ski Mask
The Beardski Ski Mask is all that is man, so pick one up for the awesome man on your gift list. It’s perfect for snowboarders, skiers, snowmobilers, and anyone who wishes he could grow a full, manly beard to keep himself warm on cold winter days.
Product Review : This mask is legit! Excellent craftsmanship and quality materials. people complain about the mustache but it can be brushed or trimmed to make it more comfortable. I also like that the nose cover can be folded under if you want that true beard look. Velcro fastener offers great adjustment and the fleece interior of the mask is very comfortable. Get it from Amazon for $29.40
9. Pick Punch
Guitar picks are constantly being lost and misplaced, so don’t let your musician friend worry about running out at the most inconvenient times. The Pick Punch lets him create guitar picks out of an endless supply of materials. Old ID badges, expired credit cards, and recycled hotel keys are great go-to options.
Product Review : Had it for about 4 months and I’ve made tons of picks already from old credit cards, hotel keys, casino player cards and those annoying cards you get from promotional junk mail. If you do it right you can get 5 picks from one card. See photos. Get it from Amazon for $19.95

11. Camera Lens Mug
A travel sized coffee mug features incredible detailing to look just like a camera lens.
Product Review : I chose my Seller based off all of the feedback that I read and the reviews as they are clearly mixed. Obviously there are some bad sellers with imitations having the wrong labeling, cheap plastic dollar store style imitators vs. the one you see in the advertisement. Be very careful which seller you purchase this from. Get it from Amazon for $10.69
12. Underwater Dogs
The Underwater Dogs book is a fun, funny, and delightfully surprising photo book for the dog lover on your gift list.
Product Review : I assume dogs have ALWAYS looked like this when they are diving & playing in the water. Now, Seth Casteel has captured for us views that have never been seen before. After a 1-page introduction, each turn of a page shows a photo of a dog looking into water or diving under the surface pursuing a toy. Get it from Amazon for $12.18
13. Voodoo Knife Block
Add a touch of dark whimsy to the kitchen with this fun and unique Voodoo Knife Block set.
Product Review : Got this as a funny gift for my boyfriend, he loves it! It’s funny and the knives are actually really good. It’s been a great conversation piece and the knives being so good is a bonus. The clear plastic backing behind the sharp points of the knives makes it safe for countertop use. I was surprised that it is made of hard plastic but there is a heavy weight in the bottom to keep it sturdy on the counter or tabletop. Get it from Amazon for $159

Now he can have his candy and eat it, too. He can fill the candy dispenser with his favorite treat and then choose between three different settings, depending on how much candy he’d like to have dispensed. Candy poursout in its proper amount with a simple wave of the hand.
Product Review : I was a little leary at first when purchasing a motion activated dispenser, but this one has been in constant use now at work and never a problem with dispensing! very easy to fill, clean and change bartteries.

Product Review : Actually saved my pole. I’ve been limited to fishing at night and I mainly fish for carp as that’s the only thing here in Colorado that puts up a fight other than stripped bass. The carp drug my pole into the water and the blue led light on it was just enough for me to see my pole while i was chest deep in the water chasing it. Get it from Amazon for $12.13
21. Survival Bracelet
This stylish, masculine bracelet is actually a 2-in-1 survival kit. It’s made from a 16-foot parachute cord that’s accessed by unraveling the bracelet. In addition, it has a fire starter feature, in case you ever find yourself in need of warmth or light in the wilderness.
Product Review : Bracelet came with some good instructions and it was sturdy as hell. The only thing is that I wish the locking blade was a little less sharp and/or protected in some way. I gave it to an older man and his skin is now very thin and fragile so I advised him to never actually wear the bracelet as I was worried one flick of a wrist would cause the blade to break open his skin. Get it from Amazon for $10.97
22. Chalkboard Mug
Great ideas often start after the first cup of coffee. After you’re sipping your morning cup, don’t be caught without a surface on which to capture your great ideas. The chalkboard mug serves as both a coffee mug and—you guessed it—a chalkboard.
Product Review : We recently purchased the Konitz Classic Chalk Talk Mug as gifts for good friends. We thought the idea of being able to write and erase on the cup was perfect, since the husband of this couple changes his mind about what football or baseball team he is currently supporting, according to whether they are winning or losing!!! Get it from Amazon for $34.99
23. Zombie Tarot
These tarot cards are more man-friendly than your typical deck: the artwork is a fun and campy zombie take on the classic tarot card theme.
Product Review : Giggle. Snort. Roll on the floor laughing. Guaranteed you will do one or all of these if you get this deck! What a complete package! I gotta say, I just got these cards today, and I can’t stop looking at them. I have been thru this deck three times, the third time literally with a magnifying glass…the authors have made the words “attention to detail” their mission statement. Get it from Amazon for $14.84
