Got a super special man in your life who’s consistently difficult to shop for? If so, we can tell you…we know the feeling! Whether it be that hubby’s birthday is coming up, Father’s Day is rapidly approaching, or we’re trying to find a Christmas gift for our big bro, we always find ourselves scratching our heads for ideas, and before we know it we’re saying “many happy returns” with a bar of Dairy Milk and a hanky!

That’s why we’re stoked to have come across Crate Day – an awesome new Central Coast business that specialises in making your man’s day with some very unique hampers! The concept of Crate Day is that you get to choose the perfect themed crate for your lucky man. Whether it’s a pre-made selection of gifts, all sealed up in a wooden crate or a handful of items that you’ve chosen to ‘create your own crate’, there’s a little box of magic that’s just perfect for your bloke.

AND, one of the coolest things about Crate Day is that every crate is delivered with a pry bar, so your man can have an awesome time getting on the tools to crack open his crate. You can even choose the difficulty level for the cracking – have it standard or make them work a little harder for their gift.

Crate Day is owned and operated by Central Coast mum Vicky Brown and it launched just three weeks ago. Vicky says, “Every minute of every day, there’s an Aussie woman struggling to come up with the perfect gift idea for a special man in her life. So I surveyed a bunch of men to find out what they really, really want, and these insights became Crate Day!”

You can see Crate Day‘s epic selection of available crates below or see more details on their website here. Plus, they’d love you to follow them over on their Insta page.
