It’s that time of year once again. You’re just about recovering from being trampled on Black Friday, your trigger finger from Cyber Monday is cooling off, and it’s time to get gifts sorted for those special people in your life. All too often we hear on social media and in conversation how difficult it is to buy for men. Personally, anything Pokemon or Halo-related will do fine, but not all men are bountiful open books as I.
Best tech gifts for men
Whilst it helps to get to know the specific man in your life, there’s always a few default gifts you can buy, but we’re not about to recommend a razor and be done with it. At PC Guide, we pride ourselves on our tech knowledge and making sure our readers are clued up on how to work PCs to smartphones. We’ve decided to put this to good use for the holiday season by recommending some cool bits of tech that should appeal to any man:
Nespresso – Vertuo Chrome by Breville with Aeroccino3
This bad boy is the ultimate one-shot coffee setup. Nespresso is a market leader in the coffee maker game, and the Vertuo is one of their most popular models. Compatible with a range of large or small pods, this package also includes Aeroccino3, a milk frother that doesn’t need steam and comes out perfect every time. The Vertuo uses Centrifusion technology that gently brews your coffee and espresso for a perfect cup every time.
Arlo – Pro 3 Indoor/Outdoor Wire-Free 2K HDR Floodlight Camera
There’s no greater bond than a man with gadgets. Arlo Pro 3 records 2K HDR video and covers view spaces with up to 2000 lumens worth of light thanks to its built-in floodlight. Its 160-degree viewing angle means you can keep an eye on things, down to picking out someone’s license plate. With 3 months of Arlo’s security plan included, it’s also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Homekit, and Samsung SmartThings.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag (4 Pack)
How often does your Dad misplace his car keys? If it’s anything like us, that’s a lot. Samsung Galaxy SmartTags makes anything trackable within 130 yards, even when offline thanks to the Galaxy Find network. Hook them onto your keys or whatever you need to track, register the tag on the SmartThings app, and away you go. It’s more of a practical gift, but you can guarantee you’ll get repeat thanks for this one.
DJI Mini SE Quadcopter with Remote Controller
Weighing in at under 249 grams, DJI Mini SE is super portable and simple to use. This perfect beginner’s drone also includes flight tutorials to make sure you hit the ground running, but not literally of course. Due to its weight and quality of DJI engineering, you can expect around 30 minutes of flight time from the DJI MIni SE Quadcopter.
Echelon – Reflect 50″ Smart Mirror
Another fitness gimmick, right? Wrong! Echelon provides custom workout routines brought to you live by real instructors. The Echelon Smart Mirror uses its optical flow technology to deliver those interactive workout session Echelon are known for. Its integrated Heart-Track technology accurately captures your heartbeat too. All personal stats are tracks too, so you know where you’re up to and can manage your goals accordingly.
ViewSonic M1 Mini
Fancy a traditional film night but don’t want to pay out $100s for a projector? No worries, the man in your life can keep this mini projector in his pocket and fire out a 1080p protector image whenever he likes thanks to ViewSonic M1 Mini. For the best clarity, it’s recommended to go for the 854×480 resolution, but its 2W JBL speakers and USB/HDMI ports make this the perfect projector on the go. Who doesn’t want a game of Smash Bros. on the wall at work, right?
Panasonic – Men’s All-in-One Facial Beard Trimmer and Body Hair Groomer
A decent shaver just makes life easier. No one wants to be unclogging a cheap pair of hair clippers first thing in the morning, which is why Panasonics all-in-one offering is a great gift for the man in your life. offering 39 length settings from 0.5mm to 20mm, its stainless steel blades should be able to take on any job it’s given. You’ll also get 50 minutes of use out of a one-hour charge, so there should be no excuses for keeping that beard on point.
Amazon Music/Disney Plus offer
This is a creative one but bear with us. Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, and more content is live on Disney Plus. Why not grab him a subscription? Better yet, why don’t you grab him an Amazon Music subscription and get up to six months of Disney Plus for free? Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone. Simply sign up to Amazon Music Unlimited and enjoy Disney Plus.
