Be he your father, brother, boss, husband, son, cousin, or mentor, the man in your life always feels hard to shop for. In fact, according to Google, this common frustration unites millions of search threads every Christmas. What we’ve noticed is that they’re not often equipped to detail what they want as they tend to buy what they need when they need it, which is practical and smart, but it also means that buying guy gifts during the holiday season can be extra tricky – you’re not going to buy him another bulky sweater, a football jersey for a team he doesn’t even root for anymore, or a last-minute pair of socks again, right?
Let’s try something. Is your guy unlikely to have a wishlist, not one to drop hints, and already in possession of everything he needs? If that sounds familiar, our cool, gadget-y gift guide will solve your woes. Because even if he is the most indulgent man on the planet, chances that he doesn’t have his own personal robot or a portable 3D home theater are high.
