Q & A For Holiday Gifts For Men

We, here at Man Cave Mastery, are toning down the locker room hogwash, lipping our lizard brain shut and, basically, trying to be upright citizens in front of the dames… At least for this article.

This is us, clamping down the dozens or so porn tabs on our computer… See, we are not all knuckle draggers, we can behave.

In the following piece of investigative reporting, we’ll look at the tough questions. We will dig deep into the masculine psyche in order to give womankind the skinny, the dope, the word on the street regarding what to get your love bunny this Christmas.

What's The Ideal Gift For Men?

Are threesomes out of the question?

If your response is a bar no contest Yes!” A scandalous “how dare you!” And a determined “never in a million years,” Then you've stumbled into a goldmine of wisdom and advice. Now, if your frisky compunction leans towards a festive day-dream followed by a saucy: “sound fun”, then, by all means, close this column and go to bed. Sleep tight with the knowledge that your hubby hit the jackpot when he found you and, better still, with the assurance that you have his soul by the balls.

Now to the enigma at hand: what to get your boyfriend? What get your lover? What to get for your husband? A riddle that has plagued womankind since the dawn… And a puzzle must men can solve with taking their morning piss. I'm going toss back the curtain and let the fairer sex get a glimpse at the wizard, the hidden truth… MEN AREN’T THAT HARD TO BUY FOR!

The problem is, and here's the rub, most women tend to over analyze our saurian intellects. We are simply creatures that are easily distracted by shiny things; if it's cool, then we will live it.

How Much Will It Cost Me?

Can you truly put a price on happiness? Oh, you can… Then, let's lay down a few accounting rules. You are here, knocking at our doorstep because you are no doubt on a budget. If this is not the case, if you're bank account has more zeros than binary code, then stick the keys to a new Lamborghini under his gold plated tree and be done with it.

This is a budget friendly article. We will be exploring cool, dynamic doodads that will make you the dudette, the boss, and allow you to keep the house from being collected by the house.

Why Can't I Just Buy My Man A Tie For Christmas?

Did he sleep with your sister? Did he stay out a whole weekend, dragging himself in on Monday smelling of booze, STDs, and vomit? Does he have a second lease in the nearest Dog House? Do you hate him? Are you a sadistic witch?

If, once again, I'm shocking you with my interrogation, and all you can do is yell at the screen a wrathful bark of: “NO!”, then why in God’s name would you sully your image with a tie? You might as well give him a pair of socks and divorce papers.

Should I Buy Him A Practical Gift?

If he needs a white shirt for work, or a new pair of work boots, if he needs a new belt, and you fulfill his NEED on Christmas morning, he will be gracious but disappointed. Christmas gift giving, is about being creative and having fun. It's about blowing him away. There's a reason why he's using the same old boots since last May. There's a reason why he’s going to work trying to hide the pit-stains under his arms. The fact is, he doesn't give a toss! If he wanted the things he needs, he would have gone shopping ages ago.

When he opens his present, what sort of reaction are you looking for? “A whoa!!!” He suddenly transforms into Golem or a “that's nice,” a meh and a gift swept into a corner?
