Guys to Give Guys – Sports Trash Talk

We get it, we get it.  Sometimes it doesn’t feel like the most manly of activities to research, purchase, wrap and deliver a special gift for your buddies…
That’s why this manly, trash talking service is the perfect “gift” for sports loving, high-fiving, beer guzzling men. will have a real person call your bud and talk trash about any team, any sport.  You can customize calls or make it anonymous.  They’ll brag about your sick quarterback, play your teams fight song, or celebrate a big touchdown and really get under the skin of your rival buddies favorite team. 

Prices range from $1.25 – $2.25 and for $10 you can have them call your buddy every day for 20 days leading up to the big game. 
This is a fabulous idea I found on Netted by the Webbies

I am about to attempt to build a model tonight for our WGN segment …. I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out 🙂

You can buy it at the Legoland Discovery Center Tower

If You Loose Your Beer – Just Page It

First of all, I am obsessed with the name of this company, Man Cave.

They have just about everything you need to outfit you or your man’s very own man cave.

Men tend to get left out when it comes to hostess gifts. Give a beer pager or another one of my favorite ideas for the site, their Meat of The Month Club.

Cloud 9 Living – Give an Experience Gift

Especially in times like these, many people don’t always need or want the tangible gifts they used to.

That’s why I am loving these “experience gifts” from a company called Cloud9 Living.

They have 1,000’s of different types of experiences you can pick from all over the country.  You buy a gift certificate that comes in a cute gift box and the recipient can pick their memorable experience of choice!

Definitely a more memorable gift than another scented candle.

Give A Man Candle

Give “Mandles”… Candles for Men.

Give candles made out of beer bottles with manly scents like Hooters Waitress (tanning lotion with a hint of fryer oil), Hungry Man TV Dinner (roast beef & creamed corn), Munchies (Fritos, pot), and of course, stripper breath.
