With the gift-giving season upon us, we’re all on the hunt for the most sought-after gifts this side of the North Pole. Lucky for you, we’re continuing our gift guide series with a few ideas for the men in your life. Yep, we’ve got 5 techy, gadgety electronics gifts for him that will make the Yuletide a true joy. And don’t worry – we know there are all kinds of interests and preferences out there, so we’ve rounded up a diverse selection of under-the-tree gems. Happy shopping!

1: Remote-control cars

Who hasn’t meandered through Hammacher-Schlemmer’s endless online store and lost themselves in a sea of glow-in-the-dark tchotchkes and all-in-one radio/TVs? Their diverse selection of tech is a joy just to peruse. Little surprise, then, a remote-control car from the gift guru’s inventory of special value products tops our list of electronics gifts for him this year. You can wow with big-wheel trucks or tap into his sporty side with a sleek two-door racing car. And let’s be honest – how else is he going to spend his time in the stay-at-home era?

2: The most advanced smartwatch we’ve ever seen

Sure, you can surprise your husband, son, brother, or friend with one of those mainstream smartwatches, but do they look as cool as the TicWatch? Mobvoi, a smartwatch company that’s rethinking the whole connected tech market, has focused on durability and style. That means your special someone can track those calories, steps, and heart rate while getting compliments about his fashionable new accessory. They even have models that track oxygen level and help manage stress. That’s more all-in-one than those espresso machines with built-in grinders, frothers, and TV screens.

3: Headlights 2.0

Know someone who loves his car more than anything in the world – so much so he spends his weekends cleaning, vacuuming, and polishing it? We might just have the perfect gift for him. Another topper on our list of electronics gifts for him this season, LED Light Street bulbs make it easy to add a bit of snazz to a prized ride while also ensuring those headlights don’t burn out for years. Here’s a quick comparison: LED lights will last about 50,000 hours whereas your traditional headlights only shine for about 5,000. Plus, they look so much cooler than those old-school bulbs.

4: Top-tier amp for those music-making sessions

Looking for a gift to satisfy the musically-inclined? How about a premium amp or music mastering software from Positive Grid? They’ve practically perfected the art of music-making, thanks to serious software that allows for sound tweaking, effects rendering, and fine-tuning. It’s all specifically designed for guitar players, so be sure to keep that Van Halen fan in the fam in mind. Honestly, Positive Grid’s offerings – both hardware and software – seem so fancy and dynamic that we couldn’t begin to plum the depths of their features. But we’re pretty sure big-time strummers would love something from their inventory.

5: Cork-thwarting Coravin

We’re not sure about you, but we always have a hard time with wine corks. They come out in pieces – or not at all – and leave cork crumbs in your wine. Or, you have to wrestle with an awkward cork in front of guests while pretending to have everything under control. No more. We’ve added a cork savior to our list of electronics gifts for him this season: the Coravin. Not only does this avoid cork removal altogether, it keeps your wine fresh for longer. (And while it’s not technically tech, it’s very gadget-y, so we opted to include it in this gift guide.)

That’s not all, though! Need more electronics gifts for him? Take a look at our Specialty Goods & Services category, or dive into the Gifts section of Grand Giraffe. We’re pretty sure you’ll find some delightful presents sure to make him smile.
