When shopping for men it’s always a good idea to keep their interests in mind. You don’t have to throw up your hands in dismay and go buy him another sweater. What does he like to do? What are his hobbies? What’s that? He doesn’t like to do anything? He doesn’t have any hobbies? Let’s think it over.

Does he like golf, or fishing, or sports; maybe watching sports? Most men like gadgets. Especially if it’s a gadget that no one else has. Many men are into barbecuing and grilling. They enjoy it and so does everyone else.

If he loves professional sports, we have many gift ideas there, too.

Does he enjoy movies or music? Maybe he just enjoys relaxing in front of the T.V. with a bowl of popcorn or maybe some good snacks.

Does he do a lot of traveling? There are many gift ideas for the traveler and adventurer. I’ve done a little research for you and have a few ideas to offer. I hope this helps.

Gadget Gifts for Men

The Palm Sized DVD Player

Men love gadgets. Even little boys love gadgets; they start their love affair with electronic and music items and anything unusual very early; so we set out to find some terrific gadgets men love.

The Palm Sized DVD Player: It’s small enough to hold in the palm of your hand and fits in a purse or jacket pocket. Whether he’s on the plane, waiting in the Doctor’s office or riding the bus or train, he can be entertained.

The Portable iPod Video Enlarger And DVD Player is just the gadget he needs to watch videos on a 9 inch widescreen with active matrix technology which basically just means much better video quality. It has duel 3.5mm stereo headphone jacks for use by two people so he doesn’t have to watch alone.

The 55 Inch Widescreen Personal Movie Theater

Put on the glasses, connect to a video iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone, portable DVD player, or personal video game system and enjoy The Only 55 Inch Widescreen Personal Movie Theater. This is the same as watching a widescreen 55” screen from 10 feet away. It uses two high-resolution LCDs and dual stereo noise isolating earphones. This technology was developed from the U.S. military. It’s amazing and fun. This is a gift he will truly be excited about and totally blown away. He might even let you borrow it once in a while. You may also be interested in The Portable DVD Player. It’s not much larger than a DVD and can be carried in a briefcase or carry-on. It can be used with the Widescreen Movie Theater. It connects easily to a television or any device with composite audio/video inputs and operates on its rechargeable battery or AC power.

The Only 3D Video Camcorder

One of the most exciting new cameras on the market is The Only 3D Video Camcorder. It fits in his shirt pocket and records in true 3D. No glasses required. The camcorder can also shoot standard movies and pictures for display on the media player in 2D. He’ll love taking movies of the kids on the beach, at Christmas or maybe when he catches the big one.

The Shirtpocket Digital Television

He might enjoy The Shirtpocket Digital Television. This won’t work when he’s on the move, but it may save his sanity when he’s hanging around doing nothing. And it has a headphone jack that enables him to listen with his own headphone without bothering others. Another shirt pocket find is The Shirtpocket Radar Gun. This could be fun at a baseball game to monitor the speed of a pitch or even monitor the speed of the pitch of his own future all star, or find out how fast his kids can run, or find out how fast his R.C cars can go. (R.C. cars are big on the hobby list.)This one is a fun curiosity gift.

Peaceful Progression Wake-Up Alarm Clock

The Peaceful Progression Wake-Up Alarm Clock could turn out to be one of his favorite gifts. It will awaken him naturally with gradually increasing light, aromatherapy scents, nature sounds. It has a snooze button, headphone jack and of course volume control. This is a top seller. I can see why.

The Video Recording Sunglasses is perfect for recording the kids playing on the beach, capturing his kid’s homerun without having to worry about a camera. He’ll find lots of occasions to record and share with his family when he copies them to his computer.

How often does he misplace his cell phone? That won’t happen with The Cell Phone Watchdog. This little gadget sounds an alarm when he and his cell phone are separated more than 30 feet. He can clip it to his belt or attach it to his keys. Problem solved—as long as he doesn’t lose his keys. This one by the way is winner of the “Best of Innovations” award at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show. I just thought you might like to know what a great gift this really is.

This is just a sample of the great gadget gifts available. There are many more gadget items that make wonderful gifts.

Music Gifts

The Bose In Ear Headphones

Music makes life a little easier, a little more fun and a lot happier. When the sound quality is poor the music is not very enjoyable, but when we have good systems working for us we can relax away the tension or jam away the tension.

If you’re looking for in ear headphones I can personally recommend The Bose® In Ear Headphones. My son has a set and he says they produce the best sound of any ear buds he has heard and they’re the most comfortable.

Check this one out. With the Wireless MP3 Shower Speakersicon he can listen to music while in the shower. Just plug iPod, iPhone or MP3 player into the transmitter which can be 150’ away and the wireless MP3 shower speakers sound amazing.

The MP3 Music and Video Player Keychain

Since your guy likes music, he’ll love The Sharper Image® Touch MP3 Video Player.This 4 Gigabyte MP3 player is all about enjoying your music and videos – wherever, whenever, even without headphones. But they include high quality headphones. He can listen either way. There’s another great product out there that he’ll really appreciate. Get him The MP3 Music and Video Player Keychain. Everytime he walks out the door with his keys in hand, he’ll also have his MP3, because it’s attached to his keychain. Clever!

Has he been complaining about not being able to hear his music because of the noise around him? He needs The Best Noise Cancelling Earbuds. These are said to cancel up to 85% of background noise. He’ll like that!

Fine Leather Gifts for Men

When it comes to clothing and accessories nothing is as appealing as fine leather. And some of the finest quality leather products in the world come from Aspinal of London. These leather gift ideas are intended for the sophisticated gentleman that wants to look and feel his best.icon

Men’s Cashmere Lined Leather Gloves

Aspinal’s Cashmere Lined Leather gloves are a luxurious way to keep his hands warm and toasty on those cold winter days. Oozing with refined style, these gloves are handmade from the finest English leather Nappa kid skin and feature hand stitched details from the finger tips to the back of the hand. But what sets these gloves apart is definitely the comfort of that soft, warm cashmere lining. They are available in brown, black and tan leather.

Leather Billfold Wallets

You can’t go wrong with a Leather Billfold Wallet from Aspinal. What I love about these wallets, besides having multiple options of gorgeous leather designs, is that they also make sure to get every last detail right. For example, Aspinal uses luscious soft-suede for the inner lining and silk lined hidden pockets. These wallets are available in smooth Bridle, Safari Mock Croc Calf and Jewel calf leather. They each have ample space with 8 credit card pockets, 2 large multi purpose pockets and 2 full length pockets for cash or anything else.

Leather ID & Travel Card Cases

Another great gift option is The ID & Travel Card Case. This one is a personal favorite of my son’s. He loves it because in addition to looking stylish it also functions perfectly as a front pocket wallet. So if the man you’re buying for prefers something smaller than a regular billfold, this will work. They are available in Jewel Calf, English Bridle or Amazon Croc Calf leather. Each one has soft suede lining, two credit card compartments, a windowed compartment for his ID and a hidden silk lined compartment perfect for storing cash. My son went with The Smooth Black English Bridle Leather & Cobalt Blue Soft Suede with personalized blind embossing. You might also consider The Double Fold Credit Card Case as another great option for a smaller sized wallet.

Two more vests you might like are The Heated Pocket Vest and The The Removable Vest Lambskin Jacket.

Epuipment & Tools for the Outdoorsman

Another handy gift idea that is great when he is camping is The 14 Day Lantern. Yes, it gives 14 days of continuous light on four D batteries. The LEDs use less energy, are safe for children and are uninteresting to insects. It also has low and high settings. A camping must for most situations is setting up the tent. He would love a simple way of doing this—enter The Instant 7 Person Tent. It pops up in 60 seconds and will accommodate up to seven sleeping bags.

Anyone who loves the outdoors needs good Binoculars. The Superior Clarity Binoculars are the high-definition binoculars that deliver crisp images without the color distortion or lack of contrast common to lesser models. They provide 10X magnification with an extremely wide field of view of 341′ at 1,000 yards and can still focus with clarity, objects only 6 ½ feet away. He might like The World’s Longest Zoom Binoculars if he’s interested in seeing the flick of a deer’s ear at 500 yards away. They easily adjust from 20X to 144X with the simple press of a lever providing sharp, clear images. He may prefer The Best Compact Zoom Binoculars. In tests conducted by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, these compact binoculars delivered the best combination of image quality, ease of use, and durability.

The 12-in-1 Survivor Tool is a must-have for emergencies at home or in the wilderness. Crank the handle and generate power when you need it.

It contains a panic alarm, LED flashlight, digital FM radio, motion activated security alarm, red emergency flasher, cell phone charger, AC charging adapter input, compass, self charging hand crank, signal mirror, thermometer, and lanyard. This could be a real life saver.

My favorite gift idea is The Transparent Canoe Kayak. What could be more fun than paddling along in your canoe and looking at the sea life underneath you? The sturdy canoe hull is made of the same durable material found in the cockpit canopies of supersonic fighter jets. It’s easy to maneuver and has adjustable seats for persons of different heights. The paddlers sit lower to the deck for better balance. The light weight aluminum frame makes it easy to transport. It includes two double-headed paddles, a water bailer, and two flotation devices. On calm waters, this looks like great fun. Don’t forget to wear coast guard approved life vests and it’s recommended for ages 16 and over with parental supervision. For greater stability, you may also need the Outrigger System sold on the same page.

If he enjoys under water activities, especially if he likes taking underwater pictures of the children in the pool; or perhaps beautiful fish or corals when snorkeling on an island vacation is The Only Digital Camera Swim Mask.

A microSD card slot allows you to expand memory for additional pictures or video. Two more swim masks are The Best Swim Goggles and The Best Swim Goggles.

Hats for Outdoorsmen

Anytime he’s outdoors, he should wear a hat no matter what time of year it is. We all know about protecting ourselves from the sun. Not only do we have the UV rays to worry about, we also have the heat or cold and insects. Men can be picky about their hats, so we’ve selected several for the outdoorsman for you to check out.

The Drover’s Kangaroo Bush Hat - This one is made of kangaroo leather and is much softer and more durable than cowhide. Exceptional sun protection.
The Uncrushable Leather Hat – He can pack this one in his suitcase and even crush it and it instantly pops back to its original shape.
The Insect Repellent Hat – Provides safe protection from mosquitoes, ticks, no-see-ums, and black flies.
The Packable Panama Hat – Exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer this hat springs back to its original shape when unpacked. It is made in Ecuador from bleached leaves of the Toquilla palm.
The Nor’easter Waterproof Hat - Its laminated 100% nylon exterior repels water while its seam-sealed interior guarantees your head will stay dry. In windy conditions, the hat ties on with a cord in the front and back of your head. Includes a secret pocket in the crown.
The Evaporative Cooling Brimmed Hat – All he has to do is run water over it, shake off the excess and wear. It conducts body heat outward, while retaining the cool water and releasing it slowly through evaporation, cooling his head. Its ventilated crown also provides cooling.

Barbecue, Grilling, Beer and More!!

Barbecue Grill Gift for MenMen love the outdoor scene and part of the outdoor scene is barbequing and grilling, relaxing with friends and maybe enjoying a cold one. There are several gift ideas that we thought your special guy would like.

For the man who is really into cooking, The Roaster/Smoker/Grill is a complete outdoor system that will eliminate the need for several cooking systems. It has three parts: the charcoal basket, the cooking chamber and a lid. He can smoke or roast meat or remove the lid and cooking chamber and use it as a grill. It even has an accurate temperature gauge on the grill. This item is on sale and quantities are limited. If you’re interested, don’t wait around. Sale items go quickly.

Another useful item for getting the coals going quickly using hot air is The Only 60 Second Charcoal Starter. The big advantage is he won’t have to use lighter fluid.

He will especially appreciate The Grill Comfort Shade. It attaches to the grill and adjusts to any angle. It’s mildew and rot resistant so it can be left outdoors. It’s not an ordinary umbrella. It’s job specific and it does its job.

Another great help in keeping him comfortable while he’s grilling and barbequing is The Cool Mist Outdoor Fan. Even though he loves to cook outdoors, he’ll love it even more when he’s comfortable and cool.

Any good cook wants his utensils close at hand. The Grill Master Ultimate 4pc Apron Seticon was made for just that purpose. This clever apron can be personalized and has several pockets for his utensils and an insulated pocket for a cold refreshment. It also includes a detachable bottle opener, a padded oven mitt and towel.

    Last year (08) was my husband and i 5th christmas together. I wanted to get something special for him. He loves football like you wouldn’t believe. He actually was the head football coach at the junior high school here for 10 years that come to an abrupt end when the teachers changed also in 08 it’s a long story but he was devastated it was the first time I ever really seen him cry. he is a real manly man. It was like someone had passed away in our household. So with all this it made me think even harder. Even though it was a little expensive (we’re not wealthy) I still saved up and got 2 tickets to the pro bowl in Hawaii 2 airline tickets and 6 night stay!!! I told a couple of his friends they were amazed and wanted to be married to me to. He was clueless. I told the kids just a few days before Christmas and wanted them to be a big part of the opening. On Christmas day my stomach was turning from the excitement he was last in line to open gifts so he began thinking that this was a big gift. As my youngest daughter gave him his first gift he opened and seen a small plastic football. “what is this thank you baby”. Well then my oldest daughter gave him the second present as he opened it he saw a small toy airplane. “whats goin on” he says well then I gave him the last one he opened an airfreshener that looked like a lei from hawaii “okay whats goin on what is this for” he says with the biggest smile on his face. I told him to look underneath the christmas paper. He did. It was the itenerary for our trip to hawaii and the pro bowl tickets!!!!! WE had a blast and he will never forget it! Now how do i top it I dont think i’ll try because the feeling will last for all christmas’s to caome. Thanks

    I have looked at many websites for my husband’s gifts in the past, and this is by far the best. It gave me tons of ideas for golf, beer, and tailgating presents. Thanks!

    Ok.. I have a dilema.. my man doesn’t fish, hunt, do anything tech or sports. So whats left? I see nothing here for this kind of guy. I did the expensive leather bible thing last year with the large expanded concordance and all the highlighters, etc.. he has gotten daily use out of it though. Any other ideas?

    Hi Diana,

    How about a Peaceful Progression Aromatherapy And Nature Sounds Wake-Up Alarm Clock. Everyone has to wake up in the morning, but nobody enjoys the abrupt experience of the typical alarm clock. Why not get him something that makes waking up a pleasurable experience?
