Yes, even if you’ve never strapped on a ski. This one is water and wind-proof, thanks to its DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The coat has a warm, soft sherpa-like interior lining, a detachable hood with a drawstring, and numerous pockets, including two inside. It also comes in 17 color options.
Why we recommend it: Winter coats for GUYs are absolutely essential, and this one is highly functional and stylish. We especially like the versatility of being able to detach the hood and all the useful pockets.
Best use - this windbreaker ski jacket is ideal equipment for:
Have you ever played in the snow while wearing jeans? Take our word for it, it’s not very pleasant.
Live fearlessly this winter with the ARCTIX high performance Snow Sports Cargo Pant. The outer shell is laminated to a breathable high-tech material that wicks body moisture away to keep you dry during outdoor exercise or hard work. All critical seams are reinforced and sealed for a truly wind and water resistant garment. The multi-layered construction of the pant features advanced lightweight insulation with heat-trapping micro chambers designed to help you stay warmer than traditional insulation.
Why we recommend it: We love this product for men because it packs a big punch in a lightweight, non-bulky package and it has pockets – rare for snow pants.Buy On Amazon
We have had our Canon Rebel for years. It takes great quality photo shots with easy to operate lenses. The 24MP sensor allows for great detail. We won't need to replace the camera for many years because it does all we need.
The camera is easy to upgrade because it works with other standarized equipment. Lenses, straps, memory cards and other equipment are easy to swap out.
In our tests, we've compared the Rebel to other DSLRs and found it's not missing obvious features or gear. Buying the camera in a kit like this gives you everything you want for a very affordable price.
The Garmin Forerunner 35’s primary function is a running watch, but it’s packed with additional features that all GUYs (and gals) will appreciate. A pedometer, heart rate monitor, calorie tracker, smartphone notifications, and Garmin’s legendary built-in GPS functionality are among some of its best features.
Why we recommend it: While the Garmin Forerunner 35 is awesome for serious runners, it also makes our list of cool Christmas gifts for men because of its versatility.Buy On Amazon
We built our home theater system with the Onkyo receiver 5.2.2 Dolby Atmos at the center. It takes input from numerous devices and pumps out the necessary power to our SVS speakers and sub.
Video game night with the kids' friends becomes an epic experience. Watching movies is completely immersive. We've seen the dog lay in the middle of the room and follow 3D sounds all around the room with her eyes. When it rains in the forest, she looks up like she's expecting to get wet. The sound puts you right in the action.
Are you an audiophile like we are? A center speaker has a challenging part to play. It has to be a soloist, delivering clear and natural dialogue across a broad soundstage. A split second later, it has to fill the role of back-up band, melding with the ambiance of the environment to contribute realism in movies and music.
The Prime center channel delivers on both of these demands with world-class precision via its 1 inch aluminum dome tweeter, dedicated and independently sealed 3.5 inch midrange driver and dual 5.25 inch woofers, a true three-way design that is a rarity for center channel speakers in their price class. Voicing is neutral and natural, bringing dialogue and vocals forward just enough to be clear and intelligible. Yet, when called on to play its part in transitions like a jet fighter soaring across the sky from left rear channel to front right, it blends in to create a smooth, realistic transition. Elegantly styled like its Prime siblings, the Center will look beautiful in any listening environment.

The Charge 4 keeps track of virtually every fitness, health, and wellness metric imaginable. Aside from logging workouts and other activities, there are functions for heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and keeping a diary of what you eat and drink. It’s also waterproof and has built-in GPS.
Use built-in GPS to see your pace and distance on screen during outdoor runs, rides, hikes and more and see a workout intensity map in the app that shows your heart rate changes along your route. Track workouts in real-time with goal-based exercise modes. It’s swimproof and water resistant to 50 meters
Aside from providing workout metrics, the Charge 4 offers sleep tracking, food logging, a heart rate monitor, and more. Our favorite features are the Spotify integration, built-in GPS without needing your phone, and the fact that it’s waterproof. The Fitbit app is also extremely helpful.
Why we recommend it: This Fitbit is one of our top Christmas gifts for men because let’s face it, every GUY needs a bit of help keeping up with his goals. GUYs need accountability and the Fitbit Charge 4 offers exactly that, making it one of the best gifts for men who workout.Buy On Amazon
My wife and I can only sleep on down pillows. We love these goose down pillows. The product description says they are: Shell: 100% Cotton. Stuffing: 85% Goose Feather, 15% Goose Down.
I'm a big guy and use 2 of them.
The Convertible Sleeper is a miraculous patented foam chair that reveals a hidden mattress when its cover is removed. Soft and moldable, it's the perfect furniture piece for sitting or sleeping.
Sitting on one of these chairs can only be compared to sitting on a cloud, since the lack of pressure points means it conforms perfectly to your body shape for the most comfortable recliner in the world - and the only one that converts to a bed. There's no easier or more fun way to turn a movie night into a spontaneous sleepover.
I personally wear a beard (gotee). Have to admit, that thing can get pretty itchy - even when showering daily. Of course keeping a beard trimmed is important but maintaining the hair and skin beneath are absolutely key.
I know a guy who can't wear dark shirts because he sheds so much skin and wisker debree. It's pretty distracting to talk to him. I've seen food in it and often wonder if it's got critters too.
Guys need to keep the scruff groomed and clean.
We started with this Hatchet for backpacking. We love it! Growing up we used a wooden ax for our firewood. It was bulky, full of splinters, and eventually wore out quickly. We decided to test the Fiskars polymer product to see how it compared. I won't chop wood now without it. We take it on every campout, including backpacking.
The balance is great and it holds up really well.
The ESPN foosball table is a sturdy game for all ages. When we first got it, the game was a hit. Now adays we get the most play time out of it when family and friends come over. The kids will have a tournament with their buddies.
This honey sampler includes salted honey, spicy honey, and lemon honey. It is sweet with a kick of additional flavor. The honey is wildflower sourced with an infusion of additional flavors.
Find a gift for a man with a December birthday. Remember, December birthdays are competing with the holidays, Christmas, New years, etc.
Be sure to get them a separate, unique gift that let's them know they haven't been 'blended in' to the other holidays. Make the gift personal.
