There are just somethings every man loves, this post if going to consist of cheap, affordable gadgets we could all do with. Yes we all want a sports car or a helicopter but this post is not for that. The gadgets listed will make good affordable presents of cool tech toys you or your friend doesn’t have.
This list will not include the obvious products like an iPhone, laptop, headphones and so on. The list will consist of things you probably don’t have.
iRobot Roomba: Robot Vacuum Cleaner
A manly man will rather eat, sleep and breathe dust than vacuum. We generally don’t vacuum, you will probably have a hard time counting how many guys you know that vacuum every day. This is a man gadget every guy will adore– it is completely self-sufficient.
The only thing you have to worry about it cleaning it out every once in a while and charging it up. It one of those gadgets people are skeptical about, but trust me it works. The one linked to on the name goes for $119, which makes it an ideal gift, however, there are better versions that are more expensive; if your budget allows to invest in one, I recommended it.
Zippo Lighter: It never lets you down
You don’t have to smoke to own one, it has become more of a movie culture item often being used to light a cigarette in the wind, set fire to fuel, John McClane in Die Hard and Clint Eastwood. It is a reliable lighter that will light in almost any condition and it’s a handy gadget to have a round. It is a cheap and very cool present to get a friend or yourself.
Mophie Juice Pack: A case that recharges the iPhone
The iPhone battery always dies on the go, any iPhone owner will absolutely love this. Not only is it a case but it will also charge your phone up so you can continue playing games, listening to music or browse the web. If you have an iPad get the equivalent. It has mixed reviews but I think it is great, the case is a bit bulky but remember, you only want to use it if your battery is dying; it is good to keep in your backpack.
Nike Fuel + Band: Monitor Weight and Calorie Burning
Band’s are controversial people think they don’t work or are inaccurate. I have used this Nike Fuel Band and it is very accurate. It counts how many steps you have taking, how many calories you have burned, if you worry that you sit down too much or you don’t know why you are putting on weight or you just want to get fitter, this band is for you and it is a great gift.
Smart Watch: Motorola MOTOACTV
A cool sports watch to take to the gym. A lot of people are reluctant to take their iPhones and iPods to the gym because of the risk of it getting stolen, but a smartwatch is on your wrist, it plays music, its got a GPS for planning out your run, it is sweat-proof and rain resistant. Plus a touchscreen display. It will set you back $136 and it makes a great manly gadget.
