6 Top Gifts for the Men in Your Life
Let’s face it, buying gifts for most guys can be a challenge. The average dude is content with a beer, a football game on the tube and a decent car. And if he’s a dad, he’s likely got everything he wants – a home, some toys for the weekend, and the love and ridicule of his family. What more does he need?
So this holiday season, check out these six gift ideas for the gentleman who has everything, but forgot where he put it.
1. Tile Sport, $35
This tiny tracking device helps you find your keys, phone or anything else of value that keeps finding its way to places without you. Click the button and the tracker makes a sound if it’s within 100 feet. If it’s not, find it with the app on your phone. Can’t find your phone? Click the waterproof Tile Sport and your phone will ring. Leave the app running and it tracks the last place and time you had the item in question.
2. iMuto Portable Charger X6 Pro, $60
Is his phone battery always wearing down? This portable charger can completely recharge his device in minutes and still have plenty of juice to power up another phone. Weighing less than two pounds, the iMuto Portable Charger X6 Pro has a universal connector and can gas up a phone even as it’s charging itself.
3. Corkcicle Chillsner, $30/pair
Though the fridge and the cooler may be stocked, eventually the flow of perfectly chilled brews runs out at any football watching party or holiday get-together. With the Corkcicle Chilsner, he can cool down his brew instantly. Just insert the stainless steel icicle into the beer and voila! Ice cold beer.
4. Picnic Backpack, $80
Is your man a romantic at heart? Then give him the ultimate picnic, with the picnic backpack. It comes pre-packed with melamine plates, goblets, flatware and napkins for four, a bread knife, wooden cutting board, salt and pepper shakers and a sommelier's corkscrew. It even has a detachable wine cooler and sable-gray felt blanket that attach on the outside of the pack. How is he going to carry all that? With a man-sized pack and padded straps for comfort personalized with his name. He’ll be the coolest guy on the lawn or beach.
5. Fred Atomic Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer, $13
See, you think your guy would turn up his nose at this gift, but here’s a little dude-secret: nothing sucks the testosterone out of a man more than the arrival of unsightly nose and ear hair, particularly if it’s accompanied by a compensating departure of head hair. With the Fred Atomic Trimmer he can fire a death ray at the offending hairs. It does require one double-A battery.
6. Zepp Golf 2 3D Swing Analyzer, $130
What golfer doesn’t want a swing coach attached to his wrist? The Zepp Golf Analyzer records his club speed, club plane, backswing length and a host of other metrics, and records video of the swing, all viewable on a phone app. It even provides comparisons with pro swings and advice on how to improve. PGA Tour, here he comes.
Really, it’s easy to buy guy gifts, as long as you think like one. Happy holidays!
