Race Day Man Crate

Any ladies out there have trouble finding gifts for the men in their life? I know I certainly do at times; shopping for my husband, dad, and brother can be difficult! Well, today I have the answer to all your gift shopping troubles! A couple weeks ago, a company called Man Crates contacted me about their products. Their company essentially eliminates the need for shopping; they have crates containing different types of items men would want! They have options available for all personality types and interests, ranging from outdoor enthusiasts to gamers to food lovers.

They asked me to create one of my own with all the items that I would put in my ideal Man Crate. What? An excuse to get creative you say? Sign me up! After looking at the website, I knew I wanted to do something running related. While they do have athletic crates available, I think a race day crate would be the perfect gift for all the runner men in our lives!

In order to create a crate, I can choose anything I want as long as all the items can fit in a 2ft x2ft wooden box. I began by looking at items men who run would both need and want. I asked my husband what his ideal crate might have. After compiling a list of possibilities, here are the items that I would put in my “Race Day Man Crate”.

If it is deemed good enough, it may even show up on their website for people to purchase – so if you love this idea, please share on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!

  6. Awesome choices - I love a lot of those products. Actually, I just got a SPI Belt in the mail today. I'm excited to try it out.
    I don't have any men to buy for...which is okay because they're so hard to shop for.
