Gifts he’ll love
Whether it’s your dad, a friend, or your hubby, we all have at least one man in our lives who is impossible to shop for. We’ve searched the Internet for the gifts he’ll actually use and love. Shopping for everyone on your list? You can never go wrong with these top 60 Amazon Prime gifts.
Time for a gift that actually matches his style
If earthy, woodsy tones have always been his style, he’ll love tech gifts and timepieces that match his preferred aesthetic. A new TruWood Hawk wooden watch made with black sandalwood will show him you’re paying attention to all the most important details—including time.
If he’s always wondered what the generations before him contributed to his existence, an AncestryDNA Genetic Ethnicity Test is the perfect gift for any impossible to shop for man. It’ll help clue him in on whether or not the family rumor of his great-great-grandfather coming from a far off place is accurate, and if his love of pizza has anything to do with his genetics. Find out the surprising facts about home DNA tests.
Tell him to take that work call, FaceTime with relatives, and watch videos of the family more comfortably than ever with new Apple AirPods. They come with a charging case and let him use his favorite up-to-date iPhone with earbuds, totally without wires. Be sure you know these things you didn’t know your AirPods and earbuds could do.
Luggage he’ll be eager to use
If he’s caught the wanderlust bug, travels frequently for work, or just likes long weekend getaways, he’ll love a new SOLO New York Downtown Travel Duffel with rolling wheels. This always-neutral grey shade carry-on bag totes everything he needs in a convenient 22-inches of expandable space. Be sure to check out more of our favorite carry on bags.
You’re all bound to smile and want to capture precious moments with a new Kodak Smile Instant Digital Printer. It uses Bluetooth technology to instantly print photos directly from iPhone and Android devices with the free Smile App. This is just one of the tech gifts your dad would love.
Love is immeasurable, unfinished projects are not
Give the tinkering handyman in your home a new Craftsman Pro-11 Tape Measure so he can measure twice, cut once, and be happy for years to come. He’ll manage to find new ways to use each of the 25-feet of this professional-grade tape measure features. He’ll be able to use it for these DIY home repairs anyone can do.
For home chef guys
If he’s a lean, mean cooking machine prone to watching his favorite celebrity chefs late at night, he’ll get a kick out of new Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich Knives. Celebrity endorsements aside, they’re truly great knives thanks to durable Japanese steel blades, Bowie-style tips, and long-lasting features like hollow ground edges. If you’re wondering, this is the best way to keep your knives sharp.
Major technology in his pocket
Musicians, YouTubers, podcasters, and other audio technology lovers will melt when they receive a new Shure MV88 Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone. It’s small enough to fit in his jeans pocket—case and all—yet still advanced enough to use his Apple lightning connection to power this very-professional audio device. Plus, it’s relatively affordable, making it one of the most exciting gifts for audio-loving men. Don’t miss these 22 all-American holiday gifts, either.
Vintage charm is music to his ears
A new Solo speaker from Como Audio will let him tune into any Internet radio station he has access to via Bluetooth wireless technology, or he can stream one of 30 million songs from Spotify Connect. He won’t need to use his phone or device for most of the Solo’s functions, so he’s free to take phone calls, catch up on work emails, or anything else as he listens to his preferred tunes.
