  • tapes games cd's dvd's (duh!) lol. Just kiddn' with ya's. Well maybe some fake electronic candles. How about an ''ocean sound wave, or raining sounds machine that walmart sells, (this is all that stuff I'd put in it) and a little rock waterfall corner for you!, oh ............for HIM. sorry, small style multi function table, with foolsball game, pool, ping pong, and off to the other wall put a heat massage seat, or chair with a portable padded heat/ vibration massage chair pad. Books on projects to ''to-do'' fix - it's in the bath, plumbing, books or magazines on hunting, or man stuff. lol. Black lights, stereo chair with headphones, (too much?????)LOL!!!!

  • Nesting side tables for snacks and drinks. A popcorn machine or a pinball machine...any kind of machine except maybe a sewing machine. Dark curtains (brown, navy, crimson) and a matching rug to catch the spilled monsters before they destroy the carpet. Lowe's has a lot of special lighting sets, to set his gaming mood. My fave are changing color lights that go behind the entertainment system.

  • I paid for the cost of finishing our basement into a man cave for my hubby and a boy cave for our children a couple of years ago! LOL

    I divided the basement in half (where the stairs are positioned) and on my hubby's half, bought 3 black leather recliners, installed a wet bar with mini fridge, installed floor to ceiling shelves to house his sports memorabilia, framed all of his cherished sports photos, and moved and arranged all of our workout equipment (weights, treadmill, stair climber, benches, etc.) to one end, installed an older stereo system we had so he can play music while working out, and ran a fourth line to hook up the flat screen TV to our satellite subscription. I also added a storage closet that houses a card table and some folding chairs, so he can have a few friends over to play cards and watch "the game!"

    My boys' cave is similar just toys instead of weights, a TV and the pool table! :o)

  • yeah i like the idea of pinup girl posters and a table for snacks and stuff.. he doesnt really drink (family history issues) and he doesnt really care for sports at all.. hes a gamer nerd and hardly ever has friends over.. but maybe this room will change that.. hopefully.. i think i will get a model boat thingy from michaels for him to put together tho.. he loves sail boats so that might be cool but idk..
