Have you guys heard of Uncrate? It's kind of like Pinterest for guys. Not that I have anything against guys on Pinterest. I'm on there, too. But this site is my favorite because it cuts away all the bridal floral arrangements and butternut squash lasagna recipes and leaves the things guys actually care about: technology, gadgets, movies, rides, etc.

Here are some of my favorite man things discovered on Uncrate recently. I'mma call 'em "T.J.'s Treasures." You can call it my Christmas wish list a couple of months in advance.
Stack Stoves

Wouldn't you know these "Stack Stoves" aren't available yet in the U.S.? Sleek as all hell, they scream European design. Designed by Adriano Design and built in Italy by Castellamonte, these ceramic stoves come in round and rectangular styles, with a variety of bases and finishes available.

This Whiskey Barrel Adirondack Chair, priced at $470, is a sight for sore eyes. Uncrate suggests that it's pretty enough to use indoors, and while I agree, I'd like a half dozen to line up across
my new deck.

Less Andy Warhol, more Hulk Hogan. At $20 a piece, these WWF Legends Minimalist Posters are an easy way to give a pop art pop to a room. Each includes the wrestler's signature move at the bottom.
Stact Wine Wall
How cool is this Modular Wine Wall from Stact? I love that it looks cool enough to double as a work of art and that you can add panels as you see fit. Also, gotta love that the funds behind this genius idea were raised on Kickstarter just this past September.
Beard Beer Coozie
Uncrate theorizes that this Beard Coozie will "instantly make you the coolest drunk guy at the party." Cool or not, this coozie cracks me up.
Keybrid Carabiner Key
And, really, coming from a guy who spends half his day fiddling with keys, these Keybrid Carabiner Keys are just plain awesome because they make transferring keys to new homeowners a much happier, much more stylish, far less fumbly experience.
