Gift Guide for Guys from

With Christmas getting near, it’s time to cross some names off that shopping list! To make gift-giving a little easier, we’ve asked the guys of what they’ve got on their holiday wish list!


Here’s What They Told Us:

John said: 

The XBOX One / PS4

Xbox One v. PS4

“Cause it’s epic. Newest game systems that every dude should want. Pushing some of the best high end graphics that will make your eye balls bleed pixels.”

Arduino Starter Kit 

Arduino Starter Kit

“Every geek has been wanting to get into an Arduino project. You can create just about anything with an Arduino kit and some patience. I’ve always wanted to create an wifi controlled garage door opener. That way I can close the garage if I ever forget.”

Wade Said:

Google Chromecast


“This thing is awesome! I got one back in July when it first came out, now I want one for every TV in the house.  Basically, it turns any TV with an HDMI cable into a smart TV for just $35.00.  It’ll play Netflix, Hulu and Google Play movies, as well as YouTube videos.   It’ll play music.  It’ll even stream video from your computer via the Chrome Browser (so you can even use it to give presentations in a pinch). You can control it from your phone or tablet.  For $35.00, you can’t go wrong with this.”

Google Nexus 7

Nexus 7

“About half the price of the iPad mini, the Nexus 7 is a great value at $229 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version.  Great for reading books, watching movies, playing games and working in Google Docs.  Get it with a Chromecast and your TV viewing will never be the same.”

Gift card to a great men’s department store (Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus)

“Trust me that we’d rather pick out our own clothes and shoes.”

A good bottle of Bourbon (small batch)

Pappy Van Winkle

“We can brag and share with our home boys. A good Liquor Store can give good suggestions (Bakers, Bookers< Knob Creek, Basil Hayden, Woodfield, Bullit, Jefferson Reserve and if you really want to impress Pappy Von Winkle!)”

An iPad Air

“Men love tech toys and gadgets”

Schuyler said:

Playstation 4


“Guys always want to play the newest, best looking games and this is the answer. They focus more on the games, the players, and the online communities around them. Plus its doubles as a blu-ray player!”

Breaking Bad Series Collection

Breaking Bad DVD Set

“I’m a huge fan of Breaking Bad and now that the show is over they have a complete series collection on blu-ray in an awesome package.”

Christian said: 

Sonos Wireless Speaker 

Sonos Wireless Speaker

“This bad boy is a seamless blue tooth wireless nine speaker component that is mounted below your flat screen to turn any room in your home into a bumpin’ world of surround sound. The beauty of this whole system aside from functioning wirelessly, and being extremely sleek and modern in design, is that other components can be added over time. Picture birthday and anniversary gifts to follow after the first investment in the “Playbar”!”

A Good-Quality Pea Coat

Men's Coat from Nordstrom

“Next on my list is a good quality Pea Coat, and this fresh twist on a gentleman’s classic coat is definitely on my list from Nordstrom.”

A Few Other Ideas:

Coin Card


“It’s essentially a tech device that combines all of your credit cards in one place – never have to search through your pockets again!”

Polar Loop

“The loop tracks health and fitness activities. The biggest advantage is that it tracks your activity 24/7 & has a heart-rate sensor to give you the most accurate reading to help you achieve your goals”

  1. What could be better than recommendations of team members from, a fashion and tech savvy company that was recently named one of Internet Retailer's Hot 100?? Nothing! I just bought my husband the Chomecast and I know he's gonna love it! Great ideas here. Thanks!
