We’re constantly bewildered that hockey was invented in Canada because hockey basically is boxing on ice with occasional skating breaks, and Canadians are a peaceful people whose rare public disturbances are, more often than not: “moose-related.”
If you broke into a Canadian’s home, which is literally just opening an unlocked door, you’d probably be welcomed with pea soup and maple cookies. But, speak any less than supportive of the regional hockey team, and that same person would check you straight through the glass.
Our NHL Barware Crate honors Canada’s greatest gift to the world: bone-crushing, beard-growing ice hockey obsession.
The NHL Barware Crate is the hat trick needed to energize any diehard hockey crew. It includes four NHL-licensed team pint glasses to hold the fuel every fan needs to keep up with the fastest game on earth...from the most comfortable spot on the couch.
We converted some game-used sticks into sweet bottle openers via woodchipper, so now he can crack open his beers with the same gear used to crack professional hockey players’ teeth.
Contrary to popular belief, he doesn’t need to soak faceoff circle stains into his tabletop to be a true fan. The much better option is to pass around team puck coasters, so he won’t have to take a sandpaper zamboni to his coffee table.
And of course, all the snacks his close friends and his closest friend, his playoff beard, can handle.
Gear him up with the NHL Barware Crate, and he’ll be a pair of skates and a few extra teeth away from jumping the boards for a line change.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

At first I didn't know who my crate was from, and then I saw the card and "hoped" it was from my wife (and not some stalker) since it said some loving things. I think she was getting me back for the taping I do every year on her Christmas gifts, because the box was sealed REALLY well (thank you for the mini crowbar). When I looked inside, I saw the Blackhawks package which will be part of the collection in my Man Cave (okay - it's just a bedroom acting as my home office/play room). I'm also going to keep the crate and use it as a wall shelf or garbage can (maybe a foot stool). Now that I know about MANCRATE, I will definitely order more items for myself and other friends/family.

I was really struggling to find a birthday gift for my boyfriend of 5 years. A website suggested Man Crates and, knowing how much he loves hockey and the Minnesota Wild, I went ahead and purchased this. He loves it, and all of his brothers want one now too! It came exactly on time and in perfect condition (although he jokingly wanted to say it was broken so he could get more!). I will definitely order from here again.

I gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift. We were not going to exchange gifts as we just purchased a home. Well, I couldn't help myself and when I gave it to him he wasn't too happy. However, he had so much fun prying it open and it was full of all of his favorite Blackhawk goodies that he told me he wasn't mad and he loved it!! Just order it!! You'll be glad you did!!

Bought this for the BF for Christmas! Watching him open it, duct tape and all was fun for me and he was thrilled with the everything inside. I think his favorite thing was the hockey puck coasters. Such an awesome gift idea and we're going to buy a crate for a friend for his birthday :)

Wanted to send a Thank you to my boss and this made the perfect gift. He really liked it and I was glad I was able to find something he would enjoy that didn't cost a fortune.
