It’s that time of year again – gift giving season! And if you’re looking for a gift for the man in your life (be it friend, boyfriend, husband or father), you know how tough it can be to buy for them. They’re into cars, games, and most of all – gadgets. But which one to get? Will they like it? Do they have it already? How much is it going to cost, and heck, is it even obsolete now? Well not to worry, we’ve compiled a list of the latest, greatest, most non-obsolete coolest gadgets he could want. From video game consoles, to headphones, portable power plugs, and more. These gadgets are so cool in fact, that even the most discerning of gear geeks just won’t be able to wait to unwrap them. And if not, well, then at least it’s the thought that counts, right? Nah….
ROLI Lightpad Block
For the wanna-be rockstar in your life, the ROLI Lightpad Block is a pressure sensitive music pad that makes you sound like you’ve had years of training, even if words like “rhythm” or “keys” are foreign to you. Simply sync it to your iPhone and let the concert begin. Price: $180
Sennheiser Wireless Headphones
Beats by Dre – so last year. This year it’s all about the iPhone 7 abandoning its headphone jack and everyone needing to find a more compatible pair of headphones. And when it comes to excellent clarity, along with a noise-cancelling atmosphere, the Sennheiser Wireless Headphones fit the bill. And with a bill of only $400, that’s actually a steal.
Parrot Mambo Drone
Just like a personal body-guard, everyone wants their own personal drone. So for only $100, you can get your own in this Parrot Mambo Drone, fully equipped with a plastic pellet cannon for a full-on aerial attack on your in-laws. Oh, wait, you’re getting it for your hubby. Scratch that.
Xbox One S Battlefield 1
If he doesn’t have an Xbox One already, then skip that and get him the Xbox One S. Just like how the iPhone does, this Xbox is a version and a half. That means it comes with crisper graphics, more power, and this year’s number one game Battlefield 1. Price: $250.
Does your man own a ton of gadgets? Are they expensive or even sometimes get lost? Then the Tile Slim is a gadget tracker that either slides into his wallet, or sticks to his beloved gadget – and pings your smartphone should it all of a sudden start to get up and start walking away (if you know what I mean). The perfect gift for that paranoid / absent-minded geek in your life. Price: $30
Fender Mustang 90
So he wants to be Bon Jovi. All good, you support his dreams and we commend you for that. That’s why we recommend for you the Fender Mustang 90 guitar – the guitar that has a short neck for the not-so-nimble beginner, and, it won’t ever fall out of tune. Also, it looks great, so when he gives up after just two weeks, it’ll still look slick while it collects dust in the corner, Price: $500
Some guys are Xbox guys, others are Playstation ones. Do you know which one the man in your life is? If Playstation, then the PS4 Pro is what’s on his wish list. Like the Xbox One S, the PS4 Pro is the latest upgrade from Sony that adds slicker graphics and a ton of processing horsepower. Price: $400
JLab Epic 2 Wireless Headphones
Another option in the wireless headphone category are these JLab Epic 2 Wireless Headphones. Unlike some men, they don’t want a bulky headphone set sitting atop their head. They prefer something small that fits in their wallet, yet provides a crisp, clear sound. Price: $100
Anker Portable Battery
Here’s the ultimate dad toy: the Anker Portable Battery. Whether he’s camping, tailgating, or out on the back porch sunburning – he’s going to want to be able to still plug in his TV, stereo, microwave to zap his burritos – whatever. Price: $500
Soundboks Portable Speaker
Every tech geek has a portable Bluetooth speaker to use with their Smartphone. But the best of the best is this Soundboks Portable Speaker that cranks out tunes at an ear-bleeding 119 decibels for 8 hours straight! Price: $770
Mini Museum Second Edition
When the tech guy in your life is impossible to please, surprise him with the Mini Museum. It’s carefully sliced-up artifacts incased in acrylic.

DJI Osmo Mobile Phone Stabilizer
Thanks to smartphones, the camcorder has become obsolete. And yet, they still shake when you shoot something with them.
