The inspiration for creating Stateside Man Goods, http://www.statesidemangoods.com/ grew out of Mike's (founder) experience while deployed on several occasions with the United States Marine Corps and later as a civilian. During his time away from home, Mike realized that most of the care packages guys received when deployed were, well... ordinary. While everyone is extremely thankful to receive anything when far from home, it was obvious how attitudes and overall moral rose the few times an individual was fortunate enough to have been sent something extraordinary in a package. It was the combination of these factors that led to Stateside Man Goods.
Our goal is to always provide only the best products that can be found in just one spot- The Stuff Guys Really Want™. We know this from our own experience of having been there ourselves.
Our product line has been reviewed, tried, tested, and approved by Men- most of whom still deploy away from home. We know what it is like to receive something special while deployed and strive to ensure that others do, too.
To offer the best gift and care packages for Men in the world.
We accomplish this by constantly evaluating our current and future selection of items with the help of men worldwide.
Why We Are Better:
Very few businesses have been designed solely for the purposes of providing excellent gifts for Men. Fewer have been designed to provide excellent Gift Packages for Men. And yet, there are even fewer that have been established to provide excellent Gifts Packages for a real Man. In fact, there is only one...
At Stateside Man Goods we don't offer hundreds of categories featuring ordinary items that very few guys really care to receive anyway. After all, there are but a few paths to a real Man's heart- alcohol, tobacco, sex, guns, and food. Throw in sports, particularly ones that involve fighting, as well. Stateside Man Goods has got the food part down pat better than anyone else. (We'll see about the others down the line.)
Our Gift Packages are simple, but filled with fantastic products carefully chosen by GUYS. Our Care Packages are the best available- anywhere. We don't fill them with ordinary items, useless accessories, or silly games. Our premium snack foods taste great. Many of our snack items are unique to small town and family owned businesses across the country, and are not found in 99% of the gift packages on the market. Our non-food items are unique products that guys love- like handmade leather belts and extremely high quality knives.
Our gift packages are compiled in wood boxes or unique burlap sacks, as opposed to baskets, or other useless forms of gift packing. Sorry, no fancy bows on these gifts...
At Stateside Man Goods, you won't find two dozen of the same item type. We keep our selections simple- just the way guys like it. We intentionally keep the number of brands we carry small to ensure that only the best make it into your gift package. After all, there isn't much room at the top.
