We’re excited to announce the release of The Art of Manliness Collection Boxed Set. Our publisher has taken our two books, The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man and Manvotionals: Timeless Wisdom and Advice on Living the 7 Manly Virtues, put them in a handsome-looking cigar box along with some coasters bearing manly iconography and quotes to create a virile boxed book collection for the ages.

The Art of Manliness Collection Boxed Set has almost everything you need for an evening of manful pondering. Just open up the box, pick out a coaster to place your scotch tumbler (or craft soda bottle) on, pick up a book, and begin reading it whilst sitting in your leather chair.

Check out the unboxing of The Art of Manliness Collection Boxed Set below:

The Art of Manliness Collection Boxed Set is the perfect gift for graduation or Father’s Day. Or give it to yourself for being so awesomely manly. This box o’ manliness releases on March 30th (Amazon says May 2. Ignore). The collection is only $19.79! Amazingly, it’s actually more expensive to buy both books separately. Plus, you’re getting the box and some awesome coasters, too!

Preorder a set today so it arrives at your door by March 30. This is a limited edition collection, so order soon before supplies run out.

The Art of Manliness Collection Boxed Set Giveaway

To celebrate the release of our boxed set, we’re giving away one box to a lucky Art of Manliness reader. To enter, simply leave a comment below telling us whether you plan to keep the box for yourself or who you plan to give it to. One comment will be randomly drawn as the winner.

Giveaway ends Friday, April 6, 2012 at 5:00 pm.

I would keep the set, however I would gladly and frequently share the wisdom that I would glean from the books.

1502 Mark April 1, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Keepin for myself…would share with other though as well. :)

1503 Aaron April 1, 2012 at 6:35 pm

1504 Colton April 1, 2012 at 6:48 pm

Check it out: I’d keep the box and coasters, swap out the new books for my worn and read AoM editions.

Then the new books would go to somebody. Not sure to whom, or whether I’d give them away as separate gifts.

But the box and coasters? Yeah, they’re mine.

1505 Rolando April 1, 2012 at 7:12 pm

1509 Rod Motzko April 1, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I would keep this as a reminder of how much more of a man than my two buddies are. I constantly revoke their “Man Cards” when I do something for them, that a real man just knows how to do.

1510 Rod Motzko April 1, 2012 at 7:45 pm

(I am much more of a man than my two buddies are) Grammar police caught up with me….

I hate to be a jerk, but I think I would have to keep this for myself.

1517 Steve Birge April 1, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I would keep the set, add personal keepsakes to it, and one day give it to my grandson, with my leather jacket and zippo.

1518 Adam April 1, 2012 at 9:21 pm

1524 Michael Schultz April 1, 2012 at 10:22 pm

1529 Andrew April 1, 2012 at 11:35 pm

I would keep it, and eventually pass it down through my family.

1530 Sam April 1, 2012 at 11:55 pm

Being at a young 16, with few good male role models, I would keep it for myself. Though I would definitely use it to help some of my friends who are experiencing the same lack of role models that I am

1531 Dallon April 2, 2012 at 12:22 am

I time they will all make a nice well worn set that I can pass onto my Grandson.

1538 Justin April 2, 2012 at 1:37 am

The books would go straight into my personal library right next to the well worn 1970′s copy of the SAS Survival Handbook that my Grandfather gave me.

In time they will make a nice well worn set to hand down to my Grandson.

1539 Adventure April 2, 2012 at 2:15 am

Me, Myself and I.

1540 Andrew Lightfoot April 2, 2012 at 2:19 am

I will keep it, and read these books until the paper disintegrates in my hands.

1541 Rob April 2, 2012 at 2:28 am

I would do both—read the books, then pass them on. Perhaps to a son, someday.

1542 DG April 2, 2012 at 2:40 am

Definitely keeping it to give it away to my little guy when he becomes a big guy.

1543 Asher April 2, 2012 at 2:57 am

I would keep it for myself until I cross the path of someone who needs it more than me. I stumbled across this website a few weeks ago when making sure I was able to properly jump start a car and haven’t been able to stop reading since!

1544 Blake April 2, 2012 at 3:20 am

I would keep them, but share generously.

1545 Brian April 2, 2012 at 3:37 am

I would Keep the book though share it generously and I would give the game to my younger brother

1546 Joseph Anselmi April 2, 2012 at 5:14 am

I would use these to teach my child (due August 15) the way a man should be. If it’s a boy, they will help form him into a good man, and if it’s a girl, they will help her see what a real man is.

1547 Vince April 2, 2012 at 5:41 am

I would definitly keep it for myself. And later I will pass it to my first born son. (If I ever want children.)

1548 Steven B. April 2, 2012 at 5:44 am

Keeping it for myself but sharing the knowledge. :)

1549 Wilhelm April 2, 2012 at 6:15 am

Im sure this is a good set of books for my three sons to share. Of course I’ll check them out first.

1550 Alan Randolph April 2, 2012 at 6:42 am

Looks swell!

1551 Allan April 2, 2012 at 7:06 am

For myself, to improve my wellbeing and then share it with others to help them improve themselves as well!

1552 Dave M April 2, 2012 at 7:21 am

I’d keep it, but share it with my father and 3 sons.

1553 Brian April 2, 2012 at 7:33 am

I would pass on the free gift to my son and buy another for myself, of course.

1554 Mazen April 2, 2012 at 8:07 am

I would pass it on to my little brother.

I’m sure he’ll thank me someday.

1555 Aric April 2, 2012 at 8:25 am

I would keep this for myself and pass it on to my son once he is of an age where he would appreciate it.

1556 Andrew from Canada April 2, 2012 at 9:24 am

If I win to have them for my collection, that way I can share them with other people. I rely on the library for my books, so it would be nice to be able to share with people for a change.

1557 John McLaughlin April 2, 2012 at 9:54 am

I would totally keep it for myself. Though there are already some interesting ideas in the comments about sharing knowledge and passing the set on to sons. I personally like that and would probably do the same.

1558 Rich H April 2, 2012 at 10:09 am

I would keep the set, but I can certainly see purchasing an extra set or two for friends.

1559 Jonny April 2, 2012 at 10:15 am

I would share the set with my dad.

1560 Kris April 2, 2012 at 10:22 am

I’d keep it for myself and show it off to friends.

1561 chris. April 2, 2012 at 10:23 am

Keeping it. But getting one for my younger bro who just turned 14.

1562 Todd April 2, 2012 at 10:28 am

I would keep it for myself, and then pass it down.

1563 Sachin Doshi April 2, 2012 at 10:29 am

1564 Aaron Schnabel April 2, 2012 at 10:35 am

As I don’t own either of the books yet (for shame, I know) I would keep the set for myself.

1565 Youssef April 2, 2012 at 10:41 am

I plan to keep the box, simply for the fact I could refer to it whenever:]

1566 Eric April 2, 2012 at 10:41 am

It would have a high place of honor in the man cave.

1567 John April 2, 2012 at 11:02 am

Are you asking me to do some introspection and come to terms regarding whether I would practice generosity or selfishness when being gifted something for nothing in return?

After minimal thought and deliberation, I’d share it with all who enter my living room :)

1568 Lewis Savery April 2, 2012 at 11:15 am

I would originally keep it for myself, and then I would share the information to the masses and those dishonorable cads who need it. I’d be like a Gentleman Messiah of sorts. But a lot classier than the other ones.

1569 Tracey Bowermaster April 2, 2012 at 11:36 am

I would need to give this box set to my husband. We had a tragic even last weekend. I was running late for a baby shower and became desperate for his help. He had to help make RAINBOW FRUIT SKEWERS, By the time I got home that evening he had been looking up Pug videos on the internet to show our daughter! We immediately got him up and made him load some baby furniture in a truck again to “get his man card back”, as he put it. We’re still worried…

1570 Gordon April 2, 2012 at 11:40 am

I would keep it until I have mastered its message and contents, after that I would pass it onto the oldest boy in the family and tell him the set must be passed on again after mastering it, start a new tradition of manliness in the family

1571 Jeremy April 2, 2012 at 11:47 am

I’d keep them,and pass the wisdom gained down to my son. Then,pass them down to him when he has a son to pass the wisdom on to.

1572 Cliff Williford April 2, 2012 at 11:48 am

I’d keep them, I’ve been needing some coasters, and what better way to get them than packaged free with two great books?

1573 Benjamin Backsmeier April 2, 2012 at 12:06 pm

I would keep it for myself. I would use the knowledge to try and live a more manly life.

1574 Dustin April 2, 2012 at 12:15 pm

WIll look perfect in my man cave! Pick me!

1575 Kate April 2, 2012 at 12:34 pm

My husband loves your site. It’d be great to win this and give it to him for his birthday May 9th….I may buy the box set even if I don’t win it!

1576 Joe April 2, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Would certainly be keeping it myself to start with. The information on this site is invaluable for myself and is being passed along to my son.

1577 JoeGE April 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I would keep the box. However, I would pass along the copy of Manvotionals to my younger brother, as I have already purchased it for myself.

1578 Brian April 2, 2012 at 1:22 pm

I would keep the set for myself.

1579 Lauris April 2, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I’m going to keep it for myself now, but i will lend it for my younger cousin when the time comes.

1580 Ryan April 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

I would keep it for myself, because even though I pre-ordered it on Amazon, it still hasn’t shipped, and says it won’t ship until May.

1581 Matt Dolny April 2, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I’ll probably keep the box set for myself!

1582 Adam April 2, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Like any good book, I would keep it until I found another who could benefit from it more than myself.

1583 Jerome Patrick Shannon April 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm

I’m keeping that mamajama.

…Now give it here!

1584 Jimmy T. April 2, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I plan on keeping it for myself – but with the intention of someday giving it to my son, who I hope will learn from it as much as I have.

1585 Chris April 2, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Oh I’ll be keeping it. It’ll go right next to my reclining winged-back chair on the bookshelf next to my pipe. The coasters will work well with my monogramed bourbon glass (and yes, that’s all true).

1586 pat April 2, 2012 at 2:55 pm

I would love to give these to my step father who I haven’t spoken to in 6 months as a peace offering and possibly renew our friendship

1587 pat April 2, 2012 at 2:56 pm

I would love to give these to my step father who I haven’t spoken to in 6 months as a peace offering and possibly renew our friendship.

1588 Matt April 2, 2012 at 3:05 pm

I was going to buy the manvotationals for my father this year, so if I won this he would get that book. Not sure how the rest would be split though (that box is calling to me mighty strong).

1589 B. Matthew Smith April 2, 2012 at 3:17 pm

As much as I would love to keep the set, it would be given to my best friend/best man as a 30th birthday/”congratulations on your PhD in meat science” present.

1590 Ryan April 2, 2012 at 3:23 pm

I would keep the box set, but I look forward to discussing the second book (which I have yet to read) with my father, who received both books for Christmas.

1591 Matt April 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I don’t have the books, so I would keep the set for myself.

1592 Francisco April 2, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Definitely keep! Will pass down the line when the time comes.

1593 Marques Saito April 2, 2012 at 3:44 pm

I would give it to my brother Kyle. You might say that he is very much adrift in the sea of life right now. Due to some bad choices he is jobless, and living back with my parents. Which is unfortunate because he is a really is a talented person. I hope that he will read these books and be as inspired as I am. Thank you!

1594 Jin April 2, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Keep for decades and pass it on.

1595 Jesse April 2, 2012 at 3:52 pm

It would make a great gift to myself.
