20 03 12 17 41 08 original 600x600 drone

Drone with Camera

Can you think of a gift idea cooler than a drone? How about a voice-activated one? The Snaptain S5C drone is excellent for all GUYs, whether they’re drone newbies or experienced hobbyists.

The user-friendly drone features a one-button setup and voice activation, so there are no complicated controls to learn. 720p video, real-time transmission, and smartphone controls make it easy to show off your drone photos. 

This quadcopter drone is a super stable RC toy for beginners and intermediate users. It has a long range and can connect with a mobile device. It has a number of sensors to help out with active flight. 

Why we recommend it: We love this product because it’s great for all ages and skill levels. It’s truly one of our top Christmas gifts for GUYs.

The controller is pretty simplistic and I don't think it connects to the common Spektrum controllers. However, for most dads and kids it gets the job done. 

For the price, it's definitely worth a look!

19 11 09 13 31 02 original 600x600 adirondack chair

Adirondack Chair

We bought a set of these handsome Adirondack chairs to host people when we get together for smores or a weeney roast around the firepit. We get comments about how comfortable they are all the time. 

Only problem is, once people sit in them, they don't leave our house :)

They do take a few minutes to set up but they hold together well after they're assembled.

Recommendation:

  • put pavers or concrete around your firepit so you don't have to move these Adirondack chairs when you mow the lawn

21 02 16 17 05 24 original 600x600 cocktail glasses

Crystal Cocktail Glasses

A beautiful pair of cocktail glasses is perfect for any social get together. They are the perfect gift for celebrating a special occasion or giving to the GUY you care about.

Recommendations:

  • Try with ice spheres
  • Purchase multiple for a group setting

20 02 26 20 25 11 original 600x600 backpack medium

Hiking Backpack - Medium

We spend a lot of time outdoors. We've tried dozens of bags and packs over the years. One thing we've learned: many of the highend packs are very overpriced. 

The G4Free hiking pack is priced just right for its quality, size, and features.

My son is an Eagle Boy Scout. He got his Eagle before age 13. We spent dozens of nights on the trail. This pack was perfect for his size and equipment needs. We now have two of them. It's hard to pass up such great value.

19 11 14 10 50 14 original sunbrella6x6

Beach Canopy and Umbrella

We spend a ton of time at the ball fields and on the beach. We've tried a number of different shelters and umbrellas. This is the one. I'm surprised by how often we use it agains the surprise rain storm while at the ball fields.

Recommendations:

  • If possible, set it up so the wind doesn't grab it
  • When it's windy, use the tent pegs - avoid chasing it across the field
  • Take it to the soccer, baseball, lacrosse fields, etc.

20 04 01 14 15 45 original 600x600 bocce

Bocce Ball Set

This summer we played "ultimate bocce ball'. We grabbed the kids and headed out on the ATVs to a meadow we picnic in. It's surrounded by trees and has a stream running through it. After lunch, we brought out the balls and had an epic game. The white ball ended up in the stream, on cowpies, under logs, in the rock piles, and lost briefly in the tall grass. We did happen to break one of the balls on a rock when an errant throw ended up in the stream. LOL

Nearly every trip to the cabin results in competitive family fun. 

Recommendations:

  • Don't throw the white ball near vehicles
  • Play in a park or other challenging location
  • Play for chocolate

20 03 25 20 41 36 original 600x600 wilson football

Best Official Football

Football is an essential component of any good Thanksgiving day celebration, Saturday afternoon yard game, or a more official game. There is no better way to have a good time with the buddies than with a classic NFL football from Wilson. It’s functional and timeless, two things all products for men should be. The football is also available in multiple sizes ranging from official to junior, so even the little GUYs can play.

When I was a kid we played for hours in the backyard. We had kids from all over the neighborhood show up for flag football. We used a Wilson then and our kids use a Wilson football now. 

Our youth sports program uses a Wilson as well. Both flag and tackle leagues love the texture and feel of the ball.

Recommendations:

  • Get a pump
  • Wear the right gear

20 03 27 13 47 22 original 600x600 fishing pole jordan lee

Fishing Rod - Abu Garcia

We love to fish! We love fly fishing streams and rivers, boat fishing lakes, drift fishing, etc. Having the right rod reel combo makes all the difference between a rough day on the water and a smooth day focused on fishing and not fixing. 

When we fish pike, bass and other big fish we huck out our bait with a sturfy baitcasting system. The Abu Garcia/Black Max combo is great for your avid fisherman. We love the low profile feel and the stiff action. 

Recommendations:

  • if you're a beginner shop around a bit - for this price you probably won't find a better deal
  • don't get into bait fishing as a beginner - casting can be problematic - get a spinner rod/reel combo

21 02 16 17 38 01 original 600x600 sog fixed knife

SOG Field Knife

The SOG fixed blade, stainless steel, full tang knife with 5 in drop point is a great field knife. It is highly rated and reviewed.

The Pillar is designed to outperform in any tactical, industrial or outdoor situation. Perfect balance and perfect weight are what you get when you provide the best smiths with the best materials and ask them to produce a knife that will make you proud to own it.

The knife is stylish and incredibly functional. This tool can tackle many handy tasks. It can help you build shelter, prepare food, administer first aid, prepare fuel for burning, cut cordage, and so much more. It's just the right size to keep its weight minimized while providing the best function.

What's Included

  1. Single fixed blade (all straight), full tang knife
  2. Sturdy sheath

Recommendations

  • Use as intended - while the tool is sturdy, use it wisely. The blade work great as a blade but not so well as levers.
  • Be safe - all open blades are a liability. Cuts and other injuries may occur if you don't use it correctly. 
  • Go-Bag - include the knife in your go bag for emergency situations. While the knife adds weight to a pack, the tradeoff is worth it because of the field functions.

20 04 03 12 39 40 original 600x600 hammock

Wise Owl Hammock

Camping

We camp a lot. For years the tent was the main source or protection at night. Now, the kids go for the hammocks nearly every time. They love them because they are very light, easy to carry in a pack and easy to set up. No more tent poles or hard ground to sleep on.

My daughter thinks sleeping over water is her new favorite thing. 

Back Yard

During the summer a hammock is left hanging in the trees. You'll see random bodies chilling in it throughout the day.

Recommendations:

  • get the bug net just in case - we had an incident one night with a kid getting eaten alive while asleep.
  • paracord and other webbing can be used if the straps don't reach
  • make sure the trees are thick enough
  • you can do double-decker hammocks but you might not see the kids all day

20 03 24 16 32 40 original 600x600 dutch oven

Cast Iron Dutch Oven

We spend a lot of time camping and hanging out in the outdoors. Cast iron Dutch ovens are known for making some of the most delicious meals, from slow roasted meats to your favorite fruit cobbler. We bought 2 so we could cook dinner and dessert at the same time. :)

Recommendations:

  • season your dutch oven before using, even if it comes 'seasoned' (youtube shows you how)
  • while the brand of briquets doesn't really matter, the quantity does - research how many to use for the meal you plan to cook
  • do a quick internet search for recipes - here are some we love:
    • chicken pot pie
    • chicken alfredo
    • German pancakes
    • mountain man breakfast
    • cobbler (any)

20 12 08 17 15 51 original 600x600 fitbit

Fitbit Smartwatch

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.
