As every man knows, it is a tough and hectic world out there. So after a long day’s work (or an even longer pub crawl), chasing after the kids and keeping on top of a thousand things DIY-related, it is just pure manly heaven to be able to retire to your own little sanctuary. An escape from the trials and travesties of life. A special private zone where you can revel in your masculinity and have some badly-needed bloke time. Want to watch the footie without the wife complaining. Go ahead. Want to finish off that last six-pack of cold lager. Knock yourself out. Need to scratch an itch in an unmentionable place. Who’s stopping you!.
Us guys have had the man-room, the man-lounge and even the ‘man-cave’. Now personalised card company Scribbler have come up with the latest reincarnation of the man-space, just in time for Father’s Day on the 16th June. Introducing the Man Chair.
This Father’s Day, instead of buying your dad that shirt with the shocking pink stripes that he will only wear once under pain of death and then ‘forget’ at the bottom of his wardrobe….or that cologne with an aroma so powerful it could sedate anyone within a 10-mile radius, why not gift him his own chair complete with male-friendly knick-knacks. A place where he can sit all day, interruption-free, with everything he could ever desire just an arm’s stretch away. Somewhere he can escape from the real world, a homemade slice of paradise, right there in his living room, study or garden shed. He and he alone is allowed to sit in his man chair. It’s his sanctuary; a child-free, woman-free, rule-free zone, complete with everything he could ever need or want.
Here’s a humourous video showing the birth of the Man Chair (Contains some mild comical sexual references).
Like any great idea (or sportscar), the Man Chair can be as individual as the Man himself. So with Father’s Day just around the corner, Scribbler wants to know what kind of Man Chair you will be gifting Pops. Perhaps you want to throw in a mannequin hand, so Dad can keep the flies off his kebab. Or emergency snack drops by remote-controlled helicopter. Or a sofa with side pockets to stash the TV remote or phone for when the ‘old man’ needs to handle those all-important calls to his rugby mates…or get away from those annoying ad breaks at half-time.
Just send in your ideas for the perfect Man Chair to Scribbler and the funniest – or rudest – ideas will be selected for a special mention on Scribbler’s blog, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Now it’s just a question of squeezing in a widescreen telly in the lounge and filling up the fridge with a few cold ones.
