If you’ve never seen them before, look up videos of Yeti cups surviving car fires or still having ice in them days later. They’re like actual yetis, but of the cup world.
Ramblers are the only cups available with Yeti’s proprietary MagSlider lids. They’re also dishwasher-safe, come in tons of colors, and are insanely durable. Even if your GUY already has a Yeti collection, one more never hurts.
Why we recommend it: Yetis are our go-to gifts for men, no matter what the GUY’s into. We all drink something, after all, so why not keep it extra cold or hot?Buy On Amazon
The BodyBoss 2.0 can simulate any gym workout with a collapsible bar, resistance bands with handles, a door anchor, and more. The resistance levels can be adjusted, so GUYs can continue to use this as they crush their new year’s resolutions.
Why we recommend it: We love this product because GUYs can use it anywhere, from their living room to apartment patio, plus it can be used while traveling.
When XBox releases the new Series X in November 2020, the company promises it will be “the fastest, most powerful XBox ever.” Games from all four generations of the XBox are compatible on the Series X, making this one of the best gifts for men. Ever.
In terms of gaming specs, the Series X blows the competition away. The graphics are insane, with built-in HDR and 8K capabilities. That’s not a typo – 8K, not 4K. Microsoft is also offering “backwards compatibility,” making previous generations of games playable on the Series X.
Whether you’re shopping for your boyfriend, husband, brother, nephew, dad, or even yourself, the Xbox Series X is guaranteed to be one of the best gifts for him – and certainly the most memorable. Gamers will completely geek out over the speed, processing power, 4K video, and insane graphics. It can also play games from all four previous Xbox generations.
Why we recommend it: Do you want to be the reigning king or queen of the holidays or not? If you’re a gamer (or the GUY you’re shopping for is), this is one of the all-time best products for men.Buy On Amazon
We love our ATVs. We spend a number of weekends trekking around our area exploring, camping, fishing, etc. We take the Garmin along to keep us on track.
Garmin GPS devices are reliable. We typically use one when we're deep in the back country. Road and trails can get confusing in unknown surroundings. At least once during an exploratory outing we find ourselves backtracking to correct a wrong turn.
We have a friend who has the Garmin inReach Explorer. It connects to satelite communications to allow 2-way text messaging from just about anywhere. It's surprising how often we've used the texting features to let people know where we are and when we'll be home.
"Calvin and Hobbes is unquestionably one of the most popular comic strips of all time..."
I wonder some times if our kids identify too much with Calvin. :)
A couple of them are on their second round through the famous comic collection. Our guests pick them up. We find them in the bathroom. We find kids curled up in their beds with them.
Calvin and Hobbes and their adventures are staples for our kids.Buy On Amazon
The Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker with Alexa is ultra-compact and has a lengthy list of features. Some of the best are setting alarms, reading news highlights, controlling other smart home devices, and voice-controlled calling and texting.
Why we recommend it: As homes continue to get smarter, we especially love tech products for men that can keep up.
Set up one bundle and get your audio tracks rolling. The hardware/software kit comes ready to connect your instruments, mics, etc.
The Ultra is Roku’s “top of the line media player,” compatible with a wide range of devices, streaming services, and live television. Gamers and tech GUYs will geek out over the 4K, HD, and HDR streaming abilities and the many voice-activated controls.
Why we recommend it: We already thought the Roku Ultra was an ideal new year gift idea, but the lost remote finder feature really sealed the deal.
This BenQ 4K home theater projector is an awesome and unique gift for GUYs. We love this product for men because the dynamic iris perfectly optimizes light, color, and contrast. It can also be installed in small areas, providing a home theater experience even if space is limited.
Our home theater screen is 8 feet wide. This BenQ projector is perfect for the room. Combined with a Dolby Atmos surround system with high-end speakers we become immersed in our movies.
We do love our in-home cinema and probably catch a movie once a week. The projector creates bright and clear images.
The annual highlight is to have a group of boys over and set up multiple XBoxes so all 16 can play Halo against each other. The projector is such a huge part of that event.
Why we recommend it: This is one of our favorite creative gifts for men because let’s be honest, who wouldn’t love a 4k home theater setup?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.
Have you ever dealt with identity theft before? For work we went to California to a conference. We learned about RFID technology (the ability for scanners to read cards and identify people) and how useful it can be. Well, like most useful technologies, people have figured out how to use it for illicit behavior.
Thiefs can walk past unsuspecting marks and scan their wallets including credit card data among other personal details. It's spooky.
Protect yourself with technology that blocks RFID scans.
The Ancestry DNA testing kit plus the Traits add-on helps people build their family tree and learn a great deal about who they are and where they came from. If you’ve ever wondered why you have very distinctively-shaped ears or when your great-great-grandfather went bald, this kit can tell you.
My grandmas have binders and books and software housing hundreds of family stories and origin documentation. They respect their ancestors and value their posterity. Family is everything to them. We hear stories about gold miners, homesteaders, pioneers, land owners, poverty, interesting marriages, etc.
The AncestryDNA test is a great way to get back to your roots. GUYs who value their family will find value in tracking down their heritage.
Why we recommend it: Ancestry DNA makes some of the most popular DNA testing kits. The addition of the traits feature makes this one of the most unique gifts for GUYs.
Find a gift for a man with a January birthday. This is the month of resolution and goals. Help GUYs achieve their goals and develop their talents in media, music, art, etc.
The weather is pretty cold in most parts of the country and fathers may be involved with their kids at school. Find gifts to foster those relationships.
During the holidays this year devices and electronics flew off the shelves. Home theaters are hot and so are outdoor accessories.
