How did the necktie become the gift of choice for dads? We all know what men really want. Yes, they may spend their days coveting the latest technology, but what they crave most, in my experience, is a dank cave where the air is sweetly fouled by the aroma of cigar smoke and there’s a complete absence of window treatments or cleaning products.
The man cave: Every man hankers for one. It may seem difficult to shop for this cave, because it is defined by what is not in there. But I braved this paradox anyway and pulled together some deals — several of them exclusive to the Deal Seeker — that are sure to send him the message that everyone is happy when he is happy. Especially if he’s in his man cave.
30% Off Enevu Cube lights
Man caves and fancy lighting do not mix. But push a button on these low-energy LEDs, and you get clean bright or ambient light exactly where you want it. You can change the brightness or even the color. They work as flashlights, too. Men love flashlights. Or you can hang them as lanterns.
They are splash-proof and impervious to the scent of socks or cigars. I wrangled you a 30 percent discount off the $29.90 price tag. Go to Enevu and use the promo code “DealSeeker” when you check out. This code will work today through June 5.
60% off Catalyst iPhone cases and accessories
Men are dangerous – at least to cellphones. So Catalyst put together a collection of waterproof cases, mounts, and accessories for Deal Seekers that will protect a man’s iPhone in the cave, while biking to it, and in many other places the human male goes to escape window treatments and indoor carpeting. And Catalyst is offering you — because you are smart enough to read me — 60 percent off! Go to the collection by following this link, make your choice, and use the promo code “CatalystDealSeeker” at checkout. This deal starts today and runs through June 15.
5% off Narrative Clip
Chances are, once Dad is settled into his remote and rustic cave, he will get lonely and long to look at sweet moments from his own life as a dad. If he’s not great at getting out a camera to capture those, the Narrative Clip wearable camera might be the perfect tie clip. It captures life as it happens and streams it to his phone so he can edit, share, or just recall.
On the Narrative site, use the exclusive code “GetNarrativeClip2” for a 5 percent discount on a preorder of the (normally) $199, out-soon Narrative Clip 2, an exclusive skin for the Clip 2, and a chance to win a “Golden Ticket” for a free round-trip plane ticket to visit a loved one.
Bargains on in-cave entertainment
For a man to truly enjoy his man cave, though, he needs more than a dirt floor and damp walls. He needs a big-screen TV, surround sound, and an Xbox One. So I tracked down some good deals on those, too.
At Walmart — in stores or online — a 42-inch RCA LED42C45RQ Class LED 1080p 60Hz (3.4-inch ultraslim) HDTV is down to $269.99 from its original $449.99.
At Walmart.com the Pyle PT628A 400W 5.1-Channel Home Theater System is a smoking $152.47 — down from $431.99.
And you can save $59 on the Xbox One Halo Bundle — $349 in stores or online. Remember: If you have a reason to get him to spend lots of quality time in that man cave, entertainment will get it done.
