Top 10 Gift Ideas for Men

An inspirational gift idea list below!

Are you struggling to find that special Christmas or birthday gift idea for those men in your lives? Sure they have a seemingly endless range of gadgets in their house but believe us when we say; “they want more”.   And if you do it right then you will also get the gift giving love back in return.

So what makes a great gift idea for men?  Well we have delved deep into this question before looking at the top 10 gift ideas for men and come up with the following key ingredient’s to ensure they will have a grin from ear to ear upon receiving it:

  • The gift will make some part of their life easier or more pleasurable.
  • It will make them look and feel cool when they are using it.
  • It compliments their interests
Now that we have key ingredients to buying the right kind of present, we can get into the best possible ideas to consider when you are either browsing the internet or going into the shops.


Tablet – They are so much more than just an oversized iPhone or Android smartphone and will change their browsing and traveling experience. We recommend the Apple iPad  or the Samsung Galaxy Tab



Sport Watch – Don’t worry about buying a designer watch as it’s really tough to get it right. However with a sports watch you can’t really go wrong. We recommend the Casio Protrek Quartz Black Dial Atomic or the G-Shock Big Combination Military



Digital Camera – Yes their new Smartphone has a camera but it really is no match for a quality digital camera. We recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5Vor the waterproof Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3



Gaming Console – The gaming console is so much more these days, sure he will be playing games on it but the versatility it offers in the realms of entertainment are mind blowing. We recommend the PlayStation 3 or the Xbox 360 Console with Kinect



Chef Knife set – Even if they don’t like to cook you can always push them into it by getting them a great set of chef knives. We recommend the Global Knife Set or the Wüsthof Gourmet Knife Block Set



Power Drills – Appeal to the DIY tool man in them and get them an array of power tools that they can use around the home. We recommend the DEWALT 6 Tool Combo Kit or the Makita Lithium-Ion Cordless 7-Piece Kit



Noise Cancelling Headphones – Whether they are trying to concentrate at work or listen to their favorite music on the plane, every man needs a good set of noise cancelling headphones. We recommend the Sennheiser HD 598 Audiophile Headphonesor the AKG K702 Headphones



Classic sneakers – A man can never have enough classic sneakers to line is wardrobe but don’t stray to far away from the normal designs. We recommend the Converse All Star or the Onitsuka Tiger Mex 66



Coffee Machine – Sure one of the best things about coffee is the process of going down to see you local barrista and getting you daily fix. But many an man loves the thought of being that barrista at home. We recommend the Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine or the Casa Bugatti Diva



Messenger Bag – Every woman loves a good bag and if there is something that men are secretly jealous of it’s a choice of some cool bags to take to work. It’s true therefore we recommend the David King & Co Distressed Leather Messenger or the Ben Sherman Messenger

    Great ideas, but I have almost all of those! I'm not that handy, so it'd be strange if my wife bought me power tools.
    She usually gets my books as little gifts for things like Valentine's or our anniversary. We read a lot together, and right now I'm on a war novel kick. She bought me "Top Secret Flight" by Dale Cox: the other day, and I really like it so far!

      So you are telling us you have almost all these wonderful gifts, and you think it’s strange you have power tools brought for you? BUT you really like a book called “Top Secret Flight”? Are you sure you don’t sit at home, wearing a knitted jersey from your Nan, watching re-runs of the Discovery channel? Pretty sure your top book idea is about as useful as a pig’s left testy but thanks all the same:)
