  4. 4 Corrugated Shipper Box

    To keep your gift in pristine condition, and to keep the mailman from getting jealous.

The Fathers of Flavor

The mainstream media and its biases toward hygiene, clear articulation, and pants have always been a bit harsh on our cavemen ancestors. So their cave paintings weren't intentionally "abstract", and sure, they couldn't count past five without setting down their club, but cavemen weren't the total, no-brain nitwits they're constantly perceived to be.

The Caveman Crate celebrates our foreheaded forefathers' finest food contributions to modern humanity: the discovery of nuts and meat.

Prehistoric Taste Test

There's a reason humans don't eat anything and everything in existence, and it's not for lack of trying. It's because those "crude, lumbering" cavemen of old performed a thorough, detailed taste-analysis on every species and substance on the planet: sorting the good from the gross, the safe from the poisonous, the tasty from the soy-based, gluten-free vegan alternatives.

The neanderthals were our nutritional trailblazers, hunting and sampling every creature to ensure no taste was left untested. The best of beasts became the jerky bedrock for the developing civilization, namely: buffalo, cattle, turkey, and deer.

We've hand-selected four quality packs of seasoned jerky meat from these delicious species to demonstrate how far mankind has progressed in flavor and to instill gratitude toward the brave cavemen that brought us here.

Nothing But Nuts

Besides meat, our paleolithic parents also consumed wild almonds and cashews, with "wild" being a flavor dependent upon the nearby water, weeds, and waste. While sending these same primitive "flavors" would be the best way to fully appreciate the sacrifices our cavefathers made, for safety and satisfaction reasons, we've opted to instead include the best of the modern nut spectrum: Toffee Butter Almonds and Citrus Chili Cashews.

The Caveman Crate is our best way of paying homage to our food roots, the original sustenance explorers that became our fathers of flavor.

Each and every Caveman Crate comes hand-packed with these items curated by our team:

  • Buffalo Jerky
  • Chef's Cut Beef Jerky (2.5 oz)
  • Field Trip Turkey Jerky (2.15 oz)
  • Crockett Creek Venison Jerky
  • Butter Toffee Almonds (4 oz)
  • Chili Citrus Cashews (4 oz)

All orders placed before 3pm local time will ship the same day.

  • How do I know if my gift will arrive in time for the big day?

    Great question. When checking out, you can select your gift’s guaranteed arrival date. We’ll show you all the shipping options and costs, and you can select which one works best.

    In general, we abide by the Rule of Three:

    If you’re order is placed before 3pm local time, we’ll ship it out that same business day.

    If your order is placed after the 3pm cutoff, well, all hope is lost…kidding! We’ll have your gift out first thing the next business day.

    NOTE: Any gifts with personalized items will require an extra 1-2 business days so we can manufacture it to perfection.

  • I’d like to surprise him. Could you deliver his gift on a specific day? Pretty please?

    Well, since you asked so nicely...of course!

    When choosing shipping options in checkout, you can also select a later delivery date. We’ll keep his gift safe and sound in our warehouse until it’s time to send it.

    Pro-Tip: You can choose delivery dates well into the future, so you could select and schedule all your important gifts for the rest of the year. How clever and responsible of you!

Not only was I excited to send it, but he was thrilled to receive it!

    Every item in this crate is top notch. Truly excellent. We have also enjoyed the Hot & Spicy Crate and the Sriracha Crate and have discovered a few new favorite snacks through these awesome, thoroughly masculine gift boxes. My giant, manly boyfriend and I, a wee lass, have both enjoyed (and sometimes struggled with) the crate opening process as well as all of the contents immensely. I have been recommending Man Crates to everyone I know this year as the ideal gift for those who can be tricky to buy for, and I fully intend to keep doing so, as these guys have yet to let me down.

    Most importantly, though, (to me, anyway) is the truly amazing customer service that this company provides. I cannot possibly say enough lovely things about the kind, caring individuals who work for Man Crates. They truly take pride in their products and respect their customers in a fashion that is rarely seen from businesses today. I completely adore this service and everything they offer.

    You know you want to try it. Just do it. Go ahead. You won't regret it. We never have. :D

    Excellent Jerky

    The Jerky in this crate was phenomenal. I would not waste the 10 dollars on the duct tape though. It was ripped and the labels were on top of it. I would recommend putting another layer over the duct tape then apply shipping labels. The crate itself was well worth it and would recommend it.

    Fun Gift but.....

    I bought the Caveman crate for my 17 yr old nephew so he would have something to open while my 2 brothers opened their alcohol themed crates. All the crates were loved and deeming the included crowbar not manly enough the brothers and nephew went to the workshop to get bigger and better tools. The 3 of them had a blast and lots of laughs. My only disappointment was that my nephew's crate was supposed to be wrapped in duct tape for extra added fun (we are a duct tape family). Fortunately I asked about it and it turns out it didn't get the extra packaging. The customer service was excellent, totally apologetic, refunded the $10 in addition to being very generous and refunding the shipping. I will try again for high school graduation.

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas. Needless to say it was almost all eaten in 3-4 days. Loved everything about this crate from the Jerky, to the nuts and mostly the crate it comes in. Will be purchasing again.

    Outstanding and Unique

    I bought this crate for my husband for his birthday. He loved it--the crate, the jerky, the nuts, the concept. All were top-quality products. You get your money's worth and a really unique gift with Man Crates. Excellent customer service, too.
