Christmas is almost here. Haven’t picked up a gift just yet? Sometimes, the hardest part of the holiday season is picking out the perfect gift for the man in your life. What does he want, anyway? What does he need? It seems like every man out there has everything they want, and it gets even harder if they’re tech-obsessed.
Beyond the obligatory fresh socks and underwear stocking stuffers, here are eight of the coolest tech gifts for men.
Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch
With a stainless steel watch band and additional band options, the Gen 5 is a good-looking alternative to other smartwatches. Even better, you don't give up substance for style. The Gen 5 features fitness and heart rate tracking, along with Google's Wear OS platform for seamless syncing with your Android phone.
Are you consistently losing your keys? The Tile Pro GPS tracker will ensure that never happens again. With a 400-foot range and a loud ring that can stand out in a crowd, just open up the app next time those keys slip under the couch cushions to find them with no hassle.
Every man appreciates a hot drink that actually stays hot. Give him the Ember Mug 2 and he can control the temperature of his favorite beverage right from his phone. With a 1.5-hour temperature control, the Ember Mug 2 will keep your man’s hot beverage perfect until the very last drop.
No cable? No problem. Stream the game wirelessly in breathtaking 4K resolution with the Google Chromecast Ultra. Men might not be great multitaskers, but the Chromecast Ultra lets them stream from their phones while browsing game threads on Twitter.
The Sony WH-1000XM3 are arguably the best over-ear noise cancelling headphones around. When he wants to just sit and chill uninterrupted with his favorite album or podcast, these headphones are a great choice. He’ll also be listening all day, thanks to the maximum 30 hours of battery life.
Nobody likes cleaning. Grab the messier man something he will love with the iRobot Roomba 675 robotic vacuum. The iRobot Roomba 675 boasts a dirt detection system, automatic charging, and a three phase cleaning system for effective cleaning of even the worst manly messes.
Switch up the classic gaming console experience with the Nintendo Switch. The hybrid design lets you play the Switch on your TV, a table, and as a handheld. The man of your life will be entertained with titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Going old school? The Switch can also play NES and SNES titles.
If he’s into photography or videography, the DJI Mavic Mini is a must-have. The three-axis motorized gimbal makes sure those 2.7K aerial videos are stable and clear. Photos also look great with the 12MP sensor. Other cool features include a video transmission range of four kilometers, a 30-minute flight time at up to 14kph, and a sub-250g weight.
