When choosing the ultimate gift for the main in your life this Christmas, consider a few of these options. Whether the main in your life is your husband, Dad, brother, or son these make great gifts.
Amazon Echo ($179.99)
The Amazon Echo is a great, unique gift for the man in your life. The Amazon Echo allows hands-free convenience with voice-control that allows you to ask questions, request information about your Amazon account, place an order, play music from services such as Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more. Getting into home automation? Use your voice to control lights, your thermostat, and more.
Amazon Echo Dot ($49.99)
If the Amazon Echo is a little too rich for you blood, the Echo Dot is the next best thing. It has all of the same features and functions, just in a smaller package with a smaller speaker. However, it allows you to connect via Bluetooth to more powerful speakers with no problem.
Samsung Galaxy Gear S3 ($349.99)
I have owned 2 Samsung Galaxy Gear watches and I love them both. Now I’m itching to get a Samsung Galaxy Gear S3. If your guy is an Android phone user, he will absolutely love the integration between his Gear and his phone. He will be able to get email and text alerts, calendar notifications, and notifications from other apps of his choosing.
Apple Watch (Starting at $269)
Yes, I’m an Android girl. However, my husband is in the Apple camp. So, I have to recognize those folks too. 🙂 Seriously though, nothing at all wrong with Apple. I still own and use a Macbook Pro, iPad and iPod Touch.
Apple has recently announced the Apple Watch Series 2. The Apple Watch will allow the receiver to connect to their iPhone, get alerts and notifications, track their fitness, heart rate, and much more.
The Philips Norelco Vacuum Beard Trimmer ($47)
We all like a man that takes pride is looking good. And keeping the beard trimmed is an important part of that. The Philips Norelco Vacuum Beard Trimmer is a must have item. With 20 built-in length options, varying removable heads, and different design/detail options when shaping your beard, any man who has a beard, is going to love this nifty device. The integrated vacuum system lifts the hair for easier cutting and catches up to 90% of the trimmed hair, for less clean up.
Jawbone UP3 ($51.99)
If your guy is into fitness, but it not really the full smartwatch type, the Jawbone UP3 is a great option. For men who love tracking activity and fitness goals, this is the perfect activity tracker to invest in. Track sleep patterns, food logs, daily steps, and calorie counts. And it all comes with an aesthetically pleasing finish as well, so isn’t one of those clunky activity watches, which most people only wear to exercise.
UDI 818A HD+ RC Quadcopter Discovery Drone ($99.99)
Drones are becoming more popular and everyone wants one. The UDI Discovery Quadcopter Drone with HD camera allows him to fly overhead and get great camera footage all-around. With an HD camera and WiFi connectivity, not only will he capture exceptional quality video, but great recording of audio as well, when recording anything from high up above ground for personal use, or even for business uses. Drones are great for capturing footage of events, weddings, or just a family vacation.
