For the Tech Savvy Guy
Whether he’s turning the house into a Smart Home or shopping the latest Apple accessories, your tech savvy guy knows everything about the latest technology releases. Luke definitely fits this category, and he assured me that all the tech savvy guys will appreciate these gifts:
Tile Pro (2020)- $50
He will never misplace his keys or wallet again! These Tiles sync up to his phone so if he misplaces them, he can find them using the Tile app. Bluetooth connection can be paired with Alexa as well.
Echo Flex- $20
This little gadget works just like an Alexa Echo or other Alexa devices. It can be plugged directly into any outlet giving you the opportunity to make every room in your home a little smarter.
Mechanical Keyboard- $99
A luxurious keyboard for the men in your life who work on computers frequently. This mechanical keyboard has the option to change the keys to different colors. The mechanical feature of this keyboard is very satisfying for the user and makes typing a more pleasant experience.
For the Outdoorsman
If the guy you’re shopping for loves the outdoors, he is for sure going to love these gifts! From camping to hunting to cooking out in the backyard, your outdoorsy guy will find these items useful:
Portable Camp Fire- $28
With a portable campfire, the possibilities for outdoor adventures are limitless! The Radiate Portable Campfire comes with 3-4 hours of burn time, it’s reusable, and it’s made from recycled soy wax to reduce embers and smoke.
Insulated Water Bottle- $21
This insulated water bottle (aka a Hydroflask knock-off) will keep him hydrated throughout all of his outdoor adventures! I can speak from experience when I say that this water bottle works exactly like a Hydroflask would but it is more than half the price. Simple Modern water bottles come in many sizes and color options so they feel very customizable. I highly recommend this one!
Personal Water Filter- $12
Whether he is hiking a mountain or venturing through the backyard, you can never be too prepared! This personal water filter will help complete any disaster kit and is perfect for camping, hiking, or being extra prepared.
I cannot say enough good things about hammocks, and if your guy loves the outdoors he is going to love this gift. If you are buying for your husband or boyfriend, look into the “double nester” version so there’s room for the two of you!
If He’s Into Sports:
Sporting Event Tickets- Prices Vary
This one may take a little digging on your part, but it will be a fun experience that you can share together or one that he can experience with friends! First, figure out his favorite sports teams. Then take a look at stubhub.com or eventbrite.com (really any website that sells event tickets) and see what’s available. Winter is basketball season, so you get bonus points if you can score some NBA tickets. If you don’t want to spend too much money, college basketball games are also really fun and a great gift idea especially if he has a favorite college team.
Protein Powder- $55
This particular protein powder tastes great and is one of the more affordable options out there. If the guy you’re buying for is always at the gym, he will appreciate getting this useful gift!
Fitness Tracker Smart Watch- $198
A fitness tracker and smart watch combo is a great gift for anyone who is active! The Fitbit Versa 2 has Alexa built in to make it simple to check the weather, set alarms, and control your smart home devices. With a 6+ day battery life, he’ll be able to track way more than just his steps- he can track his heart rate, sleep, flights climbed, calories burned, and so much more.
Resistance Bands- $20
This resistance band set comes with bands ranging from 2-30 lbs, a door anchor, ankle strap, two handles, and a carrying case to make working out on the go easier than ever.
Bonus Gift Ideas
Here are a few last minute items that I think many guys would be excited to receive!
Whiskey Stones Gift Set- $30
This gift set is perfect for the at-home bartender. The Whiskey Stones gift set comes with eight whiskey chilling granite cubes, two crystal shot glasses, and a wooden box to keep it all in. A very classy gift at an affordable price!
Red Dead Redemption 2- $40
This video game is a sequel and is set in the wild wild west. Luke is OBSESSED with this game and spends 80% of his free time playing it so I know it must be fun. It’s an open world game with various side missions and a captivating story line. The graphics are beautiful as well so you might even enjoy watching your guy play!
AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker- $30
An AeroPress is not your average coffee maker. This little gadget is for quality coffee only. Each press makes 1-3 cups of the most delicious coffee. Bonus points if you pair this with a bag of whole coffee beans.
MVMT Watches- Prices Vary
MVMT watches are high quality and come in a variety of styles to match everyone’s preferences. All watches feature an interchangeable band to switch up colors and styles even further.
Air Fryer- $30
Cooking can be as easy as throwing literally everything into an air fryer. You can make chicken, vegetables, reheat pizza, cook frozen foods- the list goes on! A great gift idea for a guy who is living on their own for the first time or someone who loves to experiment in the kitchen.
That wraps up this gift guide!
I hope this gift guide helped you brainstorm gift ideas for all the men in your life! Stay tuned for my “Gifts for Her” holiday gift guide dropping soon!
