19 11 09 12 25 23 original 600x600 camera cannon

Canon EOS Rebel DSLR Camera

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.


  • take a class - while the point and shoot options are straight forward, learning to use the advanced features will unlock the camera's potential
  • back up your photos regularly
  • view your photos on a PC before having them printed

20 12 09 18 20 23 original 600x600 tumbler

Insulated Tumbler

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?

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.

19 11 01 17 03 01 original 600x600 far side

The Complete Far Side Collection

The calendars were a hit when we were kids. I got one every Christmas. We'd pin them up around the house and send them to people when it applied.

During its 14-year run, The Far Side® was syndicated internationally to over 1,900 daily newspapers. It spawned 23 books and has been translated into 17 different languages.

“Every one of these cartoons is just something that drifted into my head when I was alone with my thoughts. And, for better or worse, I ‘jotted’ them down. It was only later, when perhaps I received an angry letter from someone, that it struck me: Hey! Someone’s been reading my diary!” --Gary Larson, from the preface to The Complete Far Side

Originally published in hardcover in 2003, The Complete Far Side was a New York Times bestseller. Now it’s back as a paperback set with a newly designed slipcase that will delight Far Side fans.

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.

Winter Hat

As we said, Carhartt is always a home run when it comes to high-quality, tough products for GUYs – and females too, for that matter. The “Watch Hat” acrylic beanie is a timeless and unisex winter style that balances both form and function. It comes in a couple dozen colors, is constructed of soft, warm acrylic yarn, and is made in the USA. The material is extremely stretchy and holds its shape well, so it fits virtually everyone.

Why we recommend it: It never hurts to add a beanie (or two!) to your collection of men’s winter gear.
