Gift Idea For Men: SentrySafe Home Safe {Give Away}

My husband is a police officer, and one of the first things he planned to buy himself for our new home was a safe where he could keep his weapon when he brings it home, safely away from our sons and anyone else. I loved the idea of a home safe, one that bolts to the ground and is too heavy to carry off easily, a fire proof, waterproof spot to put valuables and anything potentially dangerous. We agreed that it would be one of our first purchases.

SentrySafe is a company that makes very secure home safes, perfect for our needs. They offer a selection of products that will protect important documents, media, jewelry, guns, basically anything that needs to be protected from theft or damage. Many of the products are water resistant, portable or boltable (pry-resistant), and fire resistant, so in addition to anything you want to keep from the hands of burglars, you can also keep safe from damage anything that simply has high sentimental value.

SentrySafe believes that every person’s valuables should be cherished and protected, and designs safes to fit the needs of everyone from college students to newlyweds and law enforcement officers to frequent travellers.

A SentrySafe is a gift that will last a lifetime, for your husband, new homeowners, a business owner, anyone who has something to protect. It’s definitely not a typical gift, but it’s a fabulous idea, both useful and unique. Their site offers an interactive tool to help you select the perfect safe, based on your needs.

We received the SFW123CS SentrySafe, ideal for anti-theft, and it’s water, fire and pry resistant. It comes with the option to bolt it to the ground (which, despite it’s hefty weight, we plan to do as soon as our renovations are done, because our most valuable possessions are encased within). It features a combination lock, four door bolts, a key rack, door tray and multi-position shelf, so it fits a lot, and keeps it all organized and secure. This thing is heavy (I’d love to see someone try to run off with it) and once we have it bolted to the floor, I’d say we are worry-free. We can even keep dvds and electronics inside without worry because of the fire and water protection.

    Ooh, I do need a new safe. My last one I lost the key too and was easily able to break in with a power drill, ugh. This looks awesome though.

    The Fire File would also be good to have–there are a lot of papers that don’t need to be in a safe, but would be fairly difficult to replace, so a safe place for them would be a bonus.
