"Man Crates is one of the coolest websites I found for manly gifts. Not only does the gift come in a… more wooden crate with its own crowbar but it comes with super cool items inside. He got 4 NHL glasses, hockey puck coasters, a bottle opener made from a used hockey stick, and a few top rated snacks!
