2016 Theresa’s Reviews Holiday Gift Guide for Men
After doing some research on top men’s gifts this year, I added a few of my top suggestions for several categories. Shop the links to make purchases he’ll appreciate. From electronics to food to experiences, here’s what to get him.
For men and children alike, the hard-to-find NES Classic Edition has a fun appeal that has put it at the top of everyone’s Christmas list. As soon as the NES Classic Edition was released, it sold out quickly, but stores restock it in small quantities throughout the holiday season. It comes with 30 games that include Super Mario Bros., PAC-MAN, and more. Gamers will appreciate the gaming system that started their love of gaming.
This item tops the list of items on my shopping wish list this year. Since it’s in such high demand, it will have to wait until after Christmas. An “I Owe You” coupon in the stocking might have to work instead.
Men love updating their electronics. Some ideas include buying a new computer, surround sound system, or television. For a more moderately priced gift, check out the Crasher XL Splashproof Bluetooth speakers from JLab Audio. From the beach to the pool, they can go anywhere. Having splashproof electronics is ideal for the adventurous type who is always having a good time. Whether you want to amplify your music at the ocean or make answering your phone more simple by the poolside, the speakers are both practical and fun.
Household tools are a practical gift idea. For the sensible guy who takes his house projects seriously, the new Black and Decker Drill SMARTECH 20V Max Lithium Cordless Drill/Driver comes with modern features. When I gave my husband his choice of any Black and Decker product, he gravitated towards the drill. You can always use an extra drill or upgrade your old one. One of the most unique features is that it has a built-in LED light. For the early adopter, the drill comes with an accompanying app that helps you manage the battery life.
Outdoor Cooking Gear
This past summer, my family started cooking with the Weber Spirit E-310 Grill that Lowe’s Home Improvement gave our family, and we have enjoyed using it ever since. Because the grill come equipped with three burners, it has plenty of room to cook food for anyone in the neighborhood who happens to drop by your home. Not only does the food come out delicious, but there is also plenty of space to put the food on the fixed side shelves. This is the ideal gift for someone who doesn’t have a grill or wants to upgrade the one he has.
Indulgent Gift Ideas
If you want an indulgent experience, buy a gift card from Cloud 9 Living. Although we used our gift card to relax as a couple at the luxurious Spa at Turf Valley, you can choose from a range of unique and exciting experiences. For the adventure seeker, choose from zip lining experiences, flying a helicopter, and being front seat for a NASCAR drive. You can also go on food tours, cruises, and city tours. To make the gift a practical choice, men can easily exchange their experience for one they prefer more.
Inspired by my incredibly exciting, recent adventure to New York City, the New Patsy’s Golden Gift Basket comes from a restaurant that is so highly regarded that Frank Sinatra is one of many celebrities who have dined there. With this extravagant food basket, you get everything a foodie would love. From specialty pasta noodles to the delectable Patsy’s sauce, the basket has all the ingredients you need to cook a classic pasta dish, but there’s more. You also get delicious Cantuccini (Italian almond cookies),Oli Ola Artichoke Hearts, Urban Oven Crackers, Colavita Basil Pesto, Patsy’s Balsamic Vinegar, and Di Iorio “sinfully” fantastic dark chocolate.
For a fashionable, eco-friendly gift idea, Shade Tree Sunglasses are polarized to help keep your eyes healthy in the sun. With the Socrates Dark Painted Walnut Wayfarer style, you get a pair of dark sunglasses that are not only nice looking, but also help our country cut back on petroleum-based plastics. Made from hand-finished Red Rosewood and partially painted black walnut, the sunglasses have a traditional style, while adding a subtle carved design near the temple.
If you want gifts that encourage healthy living, I have several suggestions. First, for a man who is watching his diet in the new year, check out the Snackers Celebration Snack Tray from Verona’s Gift Baskets. I gave this gift basket to my dad on his birthday, and he loved it. In the basket, you get smokehouse almonds, honey roasted peanuts, cocoa dusted almonds, pistachios, cashews, and more. When snacking on nuts makes up for skipping desserts, this gift basket is ideal.
For the fitness fanatic, the Withings Body Cardio Scale provides all your health stats with a simple app. In the app, you can instantly track your weight over multiple weigh-ins to help you notice trends. Every morning when you wake up, you can also use the scale to check the weather outside so you dress appropriately. In addition to the weight measurements, you can learn about your BMI, body fat, water percentage, muscle mass, bone mass, and even your heart health. If you are shopping for a man who loves working out and tracking his fitness, this is a great pick.
