This holiday season help the special guy in your life trick out his man cave, making him the envy of his buddies.  Whether he uses his space to watch sports, enjoy home audio and video entertainment, play games, enjoy quality libations, or generally bask in secluded R&R, here's an array of gift ideas that'll help make the man cave a space he craves:

 

VTech Two Handset Answering System with Audio/Video Doorbell (www.VTechPhones.com) -- $119.95

For the guy who gets so comfortable in his lounge chair that he doesn't want to have to move a muscle to see who is at the door, consider the VTech Video Doorbell phone system. The two-in-one cordless system and video monitor combines a versatile landline phone, multiple handsets, and an easy-to-install digital camera on the doorbell. When someone rings the doorbell, a photo is instantly and discreetly taken and sent to each phone handset. He can then choose to enable the microphone to speak to the person at the front door or just stream video to further observe the visitor before choosing to answer the door…or not. No need to miss a moment of the big game or lose a turn at the poker table when you've got this handy device!

Renny Home Base Cell Phone Station and Ringer (www.RennyRinger.com) -- $99.95

Your guy will love this convenient cell phone base that'll ensure he never misses a phone call again—even if his actual cell phone is on silent, vibrate, upstairs in the garage or anywhere within 200 feet. The Renny Home Base Station & Ringer connects one or two mobile phones wirelessly—no need for landline or home-phone system for it to work.

As long as the cell phone itself is in range, this station and ringer device shows who is calling, allows for calls to be answered, responds to voice command, offers multiple ringtone options and even streams music from a smartphone with its powerful loudspeaker that employs 3D digital dynamic bass engine technology. It can also be used in a car as a portable Bluetooth, hands-free speakerphone without having to connect any wires or undertake any installation.

TaskOne Multi-Tool iPhone Case (www.thetasklab.com) - $99.95
Now here's a gift that'll help ensure he stays handy and equipped when hanging out in the cave.  The TaskOne iPhone case comes complete with 22 tools built into it (including a kickstand), yet is just as thin as many other cases. TaskOne holds an iPhone securely, and attaches easily with four small screws. Tools included within the case are: 2.5" removable knife with serrations, 1.8" Sawblade, small and large flathead screwdrivers, medium Phillips screwdriver, pliers with integrated 3-6mm wrench, wire cutters, 6 metric Allen wrenches (bike sizes 2.5-6), spoke wrenches (0.127, 0.130), wire stripper, 120mm ruler (110 mm on iPhone 4/4S, bottle opener and kickstand.

What guy wouldn't want to add a little hoops action to his man cave? The SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop is an indoor basketball hoop with the look, function, and durability of a pro-grade basketball hoop. Mini basketball games and over-the-door basketball will never be the same after your basketball fanatic gets this hoop set up in his domain. The SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop comes up with pro-grade, spring-action breakaway rim and a polycarbonate shatter-proof backboard so even slam dunks are possible without any damage. The complete indoor basketball set also comes complete with a 5" mini hoop ball. It sets up in minutes on the door or wall so the fun can get started right away!
