Hey there! This is not your ordinary gift guide. My hubby and I put our heads together and came up with this unique guide for you to get ideas for any guy in your life. There is a little something for everyone even though the majority are tech gifts. Just because your guy is not a “tech guy” does not mean he doesn’t like nice techy things so I hope you will give it a good read!
Buying for a guy can be a very daunting task some years. Men, at least my guy, usually buys what he wants when he wants it. They are also mostly larger purchases like TV’s and tech gadgets like Playstations or 3D printers that I probably would not purchase him for a Christmas gift.
Don’t get discouraged and buy your guy socks and underwear for Christmas! The only exception would be if he loves printed socks and you gave him a pair in his stocking! I have you covered with some great items that your guy would be ecstatic to get and love you forever!
Also, DON”T MISS the last part of this article because there are some super fun and unique ideas for any guy in your life.
There are two parts of this post:
- Tech-Savvy Gifts
- Other & Stocking Suffers
My husband, Steven, is the tech king in my mind so I am bringing you a list of things that are favorites of his or things that he recommends. I trust his judgement because he is the go-to guy for all things tech among all our friends and family and their friends and family, LOL!
When your guy mentions a tech item that he wants, pay close attention to the brand name he talks about. This is usually important to him. Some of these suggestions are brands that my husband thinks are the best. I will also include other good brands that are comparable to the ones we suggest.
Also, I need to mention that a lot of these items are gaming items and that does not mean that your average person can’t use them. The tech features in gaming items is usually better and they have more fun features like changing the LED light colors on the item to whatever you want. They are usually faster and better and cost either the same or less than non-gaming products. I am not a gamer and I use them!
Secretlab Desk Chair – This is the chair of all chairs! If your guy works from home or plays games at his computer for long periods of time he will love you dearly for buying him this chair. It is one of the best investments you could make for him!
Secretlab desk chairs became very popular in the last year. They have over 2000 5 Star ratings and multiple editors choice awards. Click the link above and read all the info and I can reassure you that they are the best desk chair around.
After I wrote this my hubby surprised me with my very own Secretlab chair called the Omega and I love it!
Other Options for Secretlab: DXRacer (This was my recommendation last year in my gift guide. Both are great chairs.)
HyperX Cloud Revolver S – Gaming Headset – Steven swears this is the best headset he has ever had. It is 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound and is wired so it does not have to be charged all the time. The wireless ones have to be charged often and they don’t last long. He also loves the surround sound. It’s a high quality headset without the extravagant cost.
Corsair Keyboard: I am going to rave about this keyboard because I loved my husbands so much that I had him get me one. This is the best keyboard I have ever used and it’s really cool because you can set the LED lights to whatever color you want. You could only have guessed that mine is pink!
Logitech G502 Hero Mouse: This is the king of all mice! Click here to read about it. This is the new version of the one Steven and I have that is the Proteus Spectrum. It is great for gaming because of the multiple buttons but also very nice and comfortable for working.
Corsair Cloth Mouse Pad: This is the longest mouse pad I have ever seen! My hubby of course owns this and loves it. It covers under his keyboard and it comes out far enough to rest his arms on when he is typing. It extends under his mouse and gives him plenty of room to move the mouse around while working or playing games.
Sony 4K Blu Ray Player: Most TV’s nowadays are going to be 4K resolution. A good 4K UHD Blu Ray Player would be great for your guy if he loves watching movies. It has unrivalled visual clarity, Dolby Vision and HDR10 for incredible viewing detail and accuracy and high-resolution audio with Dolby Atmos and DSEE HX.
Sony Noise Cancelling Wireless Earbuds: This is such a cool item for anyone on your list that wants a great pair of earbuds and these are NOISE CANCELLING. The Sony ones are compatible with most devices but I have included the Apple version below if you prefer Apple products.
Apple AirPods Pro Noise Canceling Wireless Earbuds:A great gift for that die hard Apple fan. Theses are compatible with Android devices but supposedly some features will be missing. I would only buy these if all the persons devices are Apple devices.
Other & Stocking Suffers
Philips Norelco OneBlade Pro Hybrid Rechargeable Men’s Electric Shaver and Trimmer: If your guy is like mine and does not like to use a wet razor because of skin irritation you should check this out. It gets the closest shave possible without using a wet razor. It gives him a clean shaven look without the irritation.
I recommend this one that I linked. You will find a cheaper version but the batteries are different. Even if you do not need the trimmer get this one. The battery is a Lithium Ion battery as opposed to a NiMH battery. The Lithium Ion battery is lighter and charges faster and it has less “memory effect”. Memory effect is when the battery is recharged before it is fully empty.
Nike Dri-Fit Polo : I had to put this on the list because it’s a favorite of Steven’s and has been for years. It made my gift guide last year. Don’t skip over this one because it’s a really good one!
Nike Dri-Fit polos are pretty special. They don’t have massive logos on them so they can be dressed up. The dri-fit helps regulate heat and it moisture wicking. My husband loves these and got his best buddy wearing them. They are a game changer for your man when getting dressed for work or church. They also look great with jeans to be a little nicer than just a t-shirt and jeans.
Mancrates: These gifts in a crate look so cool and manly to me! They can be a little pricey but you can find gift sets for just about any guy in your life.
Whether he likes sports, tech, hunting, fashion etc there are some unique gift ideas for him at Mancrates. This is a great idea if you are struggling to find something but want to give a thoughtful gift. Click the link to check it out!
Grounds and Hounds Coffee: If your guy is a dog lover and a coffee lover, this would be the perfect gift for him under the tree! “Every Pound Saves A Hound” is there moto! Through the sales of their Fair Trade & Organic coffees they donate to organizations that provide a second chance for pups. They also have the most adorable coffee cups.
Steam Gift Card: Steam is an online video game digital distribution service that allows you to purchase games for your computer. If your man loves to play computer games, this would be a great stocking stuffer he might not expect you to give him!
I really hope this covers all of your needs to help you find a great and unique gift for your guy! Giving thoughtful gifts is always better than just going out and buying socks and underwear, RIGHT?! I know I prefer a thoughtful gift as opposed to a forced one! Happy gifting friends!
