Cool Gifts for Guys

Cool Gifts for Guys

Let’s face it, guys can be hard to shop for when it comes to gifts. Whether you’re looking for a birthday gift for guys, a Christmas gift, or a gift for a man to mark some other special occasion like an anniversary or job promotion, hopefully this list will help make things a little easier. I’ve gathered up an assortment of gift ideas for guys here, inspired by the men in my life, with something to suit every type of guy and budget.

Cool Gifts for Guys - worth the splurge

Game of Thrones Ice Sword of Eddard Stark
PowerPot Thermoelectric Generator or PowerPot V
XYZprinting Da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer
PlayStation 4 Console
Doctor Who Collector Series Dalek Watch

When you’re looking to blow the budget on a truly spectacular gift, these gift ideas are sure to wow him. Game of Thrones loving dudes will geek out over this Eddard Stark Ice Sword replica. The officially-licensed prop sword comes with a certificate of authenticity and a display plaque. Geek guys are also going to love the cool steampunk-looking Doctor Who Collector Series Dalek Watch.

In the Playstation vs Xbox console war, my boyfriend has placed his vote with the new PlayStation 4 Console as the gift that tops his wishlist.

I honestly don’t know a guy who isn’t OBSESSED with 3-D printing right now. A close friend recently got her husband a 3D printer for his birthday and he’s been whipping up all sorts of futuristic creations ever since. The prices of 3D printers have come down a lot in the last few years, so while they’re still a bit of a splurge, you can easily find great models at an affordable price, like this XYZprinting Da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer.

Outdoorsy guys & doomsday preppers will love a Power Pot Camping and Emergency Cooking Pot. It turns heat into power, so you can cook your campfire dinner and charge your iPhone, or any other USB powered device at the same time! How cool is that?

Boba Fett Varsity Jacket
Star Wars Stormtrooper Bathrobe
Litiholo Hologram Kit – Make 3D Laser Holograms with “Instant Hologram” Film
Borderlands 2 Swag-filled Limited Edition Diamond Plate Loot Chest
Mr Beer Brewmaster’s Select Home Beer-Making Kit

I honestly don’t know a guy that isn’t at least a little obsessed with Star Wars. That’s why both this Boba Fett Varsity Jacket and the Star Wars Stormtrooper Bathrobe are great gift ideas for lightsaber loving dudes. (Have a Star Wars obsessed guy in your life too? HINT: check out this list of more Star Wars inspired gift ideas.)

Guys loving playing with gadgets and experimenting with the latest technology, so if you’re not ready to throw down on a 3D printer, you could always get him a Litiholo Hologram Kit instead. It comes complete with an “Instant Hologram” film that doesn’t require any chemicals or special processing. This would be a great gift for dads & sons to enjoy together.

Borderlands and its sequel are two of my boyfriend’s favorite video games. He rarely plays a game all the way through more than once, but he’s played this game countless numbers of times, because it’s just that fun. If your guy would agree, this Borderlands 2 Swag-filled Limited Edition Diamond Plate Loot Chest is for him.

Beer. What guy doesn’t love it? Get your budding brewmaster started and help him craft his own brew at home with this Mr Beer Brewmaster’s Select Home Beer-Making Kit.

Superman Symbol Performance Golf Club Cover
This Guy Loves Bacon Apron
Batman Money Clip
Cards Against Humanity
Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player
Honey Badger Don’t Care Vintage Print Flask

Know a superhero loving dude? Does he also play golf? Then he’s gonna freak when he unwraps the Superman Symbol Performance Golf Club Cover. (If he has another favorite superhero, never fear, because Batman, Spiderman, the Hulk and Captain America are available as gold club covers too!)

Your favorite geeky guy will probably get a kick out of a Batman Money Clip too, but if you think he’d like something a bit more tech-y, go for a Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player, which will let him stream his favorite YouTube videos and online music to his tv, using his iPhone, tablet or laptop.

Is your guy a joker? Get him a Honey Badger Don’t Care Vintage Print Flask. (But don’t skimp – get him a bottle of Jameson to go with it!) Pork lovers will want to wear a This Guy Loves Bacon Apron next time they’re grilling.

Feeling selfish? Get him a gift you can enjoy together – Cards Against Humanity is the world’s best party game for people who are a little wrong in the head. (The dirtier your mind, the better you’ll be at this game!) Bonus tip: get an expansion pack or two to extend game-play and keep things interesting. I recently picked up the official First Expansion and Second Expansion, as well as the unofficial Crabs Adjust Humidity – Vol One. I’ve played just the base deck many a time, but adding in these expansion packs definitely made the game a lot more fun!

Think he might like something a little stronger than coffee or tea? This set of 3 Beersicle Beer Coolers will keep his brew frosty without watering it down. If he’s a Bourbon or Scotch fan, he’ll appreciate making the perfect ice spheres at home with a Silicone Ice Ball Maker. Not only do these giant balls of ice look impressive, their shape melts much more slowly than regular ice cubes, keeping your drink colder longer without watering it down!

Is he a 2 wheeled kind of dude? Get him a Slim-Grip Bicycle and Motorcycle Mount for his iPhone or Android device.
