Don’t let the lack of communication fool you; some men are picky, and sometimes a gift card is the only gift that doesn’t require dumpster diving for receipts a week later.
But even selecting the right gift card can feel like gazing into the Unknown, casting doubt upon your knowledge of him, his interests, or even existence itself. No gift is worth an existential crisis.
Smash & Grab is our answer to these hard-to-gift guys: a concrete brick engineered to be as frustrating to crack as his stubborn taste. Once fully demolished, he’ll be left with a code that can be redeemed for his choice of gift card:
There’s a soft spot in every man’s heart for boisterous, innocuous, total destruction. That young boy who derived unfathomable joy from demolishing intricately stacked block towers is now a grown man with responsibilities and limited opportunities to wreak havoc.
Smash & Grab is the gift of socially-appropriate destruction: two inches of pure concrete that he gets to, nay, must completely obliterate. We’ve even included spring-hinged goggles and a ball-peen hammer, so he can swing wildly whilst smiling widely.
He’ll smash. He’ll sweat. He may even get carried away and start eyeing that fireplace you’ve been meaning to replace with a manic grin. But he’ll eventually emerge from the rubble with his perfect gift card of choice and a hell of a story he’ll love sharing.
Smash & Grab gives him exactly what he wants, and then some!

I don't know who had more fun... me or hubby! It was so hilarious! He saw the box, guessing it was a shirt... then lifted it and that idea was out the window. Then he opened it thinking it was something "cute" to set up - packaged in a manly way (& was being very gracious about that). LOL! When I realized he didn't take the "Smash Me" seriously (who'd thunk something was in a brick after all!), I asked him if he wanted to take it outside. His response was PRICELESS! I LOVED the confusion this created in a man who's always a GENIUS! (insert some little horns on my head if you wish! :P ) His eyes lit up as he went outside to see what was to be revealed. THEN... oh it just doesn't stop! He thought perhaps this was just a "cutsie brick" made with plater of paris, so he gave it a little tap thinking it would crumble. LOL! When he realized this was a job for a he-man, he smashed it (while hoping he wasn't going to hurt what was inside!)! Oh my... this whole gift from start to finish was full of fun, pleasure and laughter! WE had a blast! Then he saw what he got and thought he'd get to pick a gift on a website ("what kind of overpriced shaver will they have?"). Noooo.... realizing Bass Pro was an option, it was over! A huge Thank You, Man Crates, for making me the best wife ever yesterday, getting all the accolades for YOUR creativity! Thought I'd pass it on to you... the ones who were the masterminds behind me!

Thank you to the ManCrates team for making this past Christmas so much fun. All the sons and boyfriends received crates. Once the confusion passed the house was filled with laughter. The best was dad who thought he was in on the joke until he got the duct tape box. After going outside with the brick he came in with it half smashed asking if it really was a gift. The box with the pieces in it has been brought to work, and friends for an ongoing reliving the moment. Thanks for making me a hero!

I have got to tell you all.....I found mancrates.com this year and sent this particular one to lots of friends and family. I got some other ones too. I have had the most fun.....everyone has loved them. I have had more than one say....am I suppose to smash it? I had more than one who liked the cement block so much, they wanted to put it on a shelf for display. I had one who tried putting the block back together, so they could put it on display. Had one who thought when they got it...is was just a stress reliever. No one knew the real gift was inside it. Had one say while smashing it....oh I struck gold. Gosh it has been sooooo much fun. They even have Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kits if you know someone who is into that. I said I was going to have fun this Christmas and I did. You just got to check them out. I am risking putting this on Facebook, because one of my recipients still hasn't smashed theirs yet.

I ordered this one for my dad and, although they accidentally duct tape wrapped this box instead of the one I requested, he had a blast smashing it open! He liked that he could redeem his gift card where he wanted to.

I gave this gift to my son and the boyfriends of my two daughters and they all loved it. I was sent a video of each one of them smashing the card, it was entertaining and felt good to know that they really liked the gift they received. I'm sure they liked the pajamas I gave them too.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my step dad who seems to have everything, and is also a non-materialistic person, so it is always difficult shopping for him. The wide grin on his face when he saw the safety glasses and hammer were awesome. My whole family enjoyed watching him "smash" open his gift card, and I love that there are so many choices for him, this is definitely the perfect gift for any guy who is hard to shop for! Man Crates is the BEST!!!

I got this for my husband's birthday. He's the Operations Director for a maintenance facility and has been out of the field and stuck in an office for awhile now. What a joy to see his face light up as he wielded that hammer like the good old days!

I got this for my husband's 30th birthday. He opened the present when we threw his party and boy, did I win major wife points for this. He absolutely loved figuring out that he had to smash the concrete to get to the gift and gleefully put on the glasses to get down to work. He gathered everyone outside while he smashed the concrete block, which thankfully wasn't as easy as it looked to break. He was even happier to discover that he could pick where to spend his hard earned money. He kept telling me how cool of a present this was (dare we say the coolest ever?) and how I was such an awesome wife. :) Happy husband, happy wife. :)

I just received this gift from my wife. It is the best most unexpected gift I have ever received. It was awesome!!! It was enjoyable to smash the block open and find the gift card inside.

The smash and grab gift card was an awesome gift for my bf's 50th birthday. I was worried it would be too easy to open and crumble on the first smash but it took a decent amount of effort to fully open. It wasn't too difficult though. He chose to use the gift card at cigars.com and got a great deal for the amount he bought. It's much better than just a regular gift card.

It was hard to be away from my father on Father’s Day. I wanted to send him something really special that he would enjoy for his special day. I sent him the Smash and Grab and he had a blast smashing the brick to get to his gift. My relatives enjoyed watching him also. He was even MORE excited when he read the card and found out he had a choice of gifts to choose from. Love, love, love the Smash and Grab! Thank you Man Crates!

My husband received this a birthday gift from his son in the service. He was like a little kid in a candy store! Put on the goggles and went out to the yard to SMASH his gift!!!
