Cool Gifts for Guys

Cool Gifts for Guys

Whether you’re stuffing stockings, putting presents under the tree or just dreaming of a better life, we have the perfect guy loot to fill your wish list this holiday season.

Traeger Timberline 850 Grill

Traeger Timberline 850

The future is here. One of the most popular grill and smokers on the market has gone wireless: Traeger’s new Timberline grills can be controlled via the company’s WiFIRE app, letting you look up recipes, change the temperature, set timers, even set an alarm to go off when the meat hits a specific temperature. That means, more time watching the game, and less time manning the grill. $1,700

JBL Flip 4

This may be the best Bluetooth speaker at this price point you can find. We love its portability and the fact that it's waterproof (yes, you can submerge it in water, but we're not sure why you would want to). But the real treat is the sound—the bass thumps and the highs and mid-range are on point. It also features a built-in noise and echo cancelling speakerphone for clear calls, and JBL Connect+ technology that can wirelessly link together other JBL Connect+ enabled speakers. $100

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Rye Whiskey

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Rye

The legendary whiskey maker tries its hand at rye. In fact, this 90-proof beauty is the distiller’s first new grain bill since Prohibition. The result is sippin’ smooth perfection with a flavor that's rich from beginning to end, with accents of caramel and spice followed by a warm (and we mean warm) peppery rye character finish that left us wanting more...and more...and maybe just a little bit more. $27

Captain America Shield Barbell Plates

You may not look like a superhero, but you can work out like one. These patriotic urethane (with a steel center) barbell plates are designed to look like Cap's iconic shield and fit any standard gym barbell. They offer 25, 35 and 45lb options and are sure to elicit chants of "USA, USA" with each lift. (2x45lb) for $290

Super NES Classic Edition

Image placeholder title

This palm-sized reissue of the '90s most iconic video game system comes pre-loaded with 21 classic Super NES games like Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. You’ll say it’s for the kids, but they’re going to have to wait their turn while you school them with your retro gaming moves. $80

EZVIZ Mini 360 Plus

This HD-quality, 360-degree home security camera sets up in minutes, syncing with your phone via a free app and home Wi-Fi. It's ideal for homeowners who want to keep an eye on their house while away, whether that's for security reasons or just to keep up with the family pet. You can maneuver the camera via your phone manually or just use an auto-tracking setting. It also offers a "privacy mask" for those times when you don't want it recording, two-way talk, and night vision to help you see through the darkness. $80

2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster

This supercar is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 that makes 740hp to rocket it to a top speed of 217 mph. The signature look of the Aventador is a combination of deep and bold lines, oriented toward extreme aerodynamics. The new top-down version of the Aventador reinforces this mixture of dynamism, refinement and aggressiveness by means of even sharper lines, inspired by nature and aeronautics, with exhaust terminals that transform the rear end into space shuttle and a front end that recalls the strength and elegance of an angry shark ready to dominate the road. In other words, it's one beautiful beast. $460,247

OtterBox Elevation 20 Tumbler

Smartphone case maker Otterbox is making a strong bid for supremacy in the insulated bottle line with the Elevation 20. The Elevation’s standout feature is the accessories - you can swap in a different lid for any situation: a French press lid for coffee, insulator lid for cold weather, an infuser lid, and (our personal favorite) a cocktail shaker lid. $30 (various lids sold separately)

Cobra’s KING F7 Driver

There's so much to love about this driver. Three different center of gravity (CG) settings in the front, back and heel positions produce three very different ball flights. Move the heavier 12g colored weight to the front position for a lower, penetrating ball flight with less spin and more roll, or place the weight in the back position for a higher, towering ball flight with added spin for more carry. Lastly, when moved to the heel position, it works to create more draw spin to correct a slice by delivering straighter drives. A built-in sensor in the grip pairs with a phone app to track your distance and accuracy with every swing. Which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your swing. $249

LEGO Millennium Falcon

It's not only the largest Millennium Falcon that LEGO has released, it’s also the most detailed and most accurately-scaled: if Han Solo was 1.5” tall, this is how big the actual Millennium Falcon would be. And at 7,541 pieces, it’s also the biggest, most expensive and quite possibly the coolest kit that LEGO has ever released. Bonus: now you’ll have a way to stay busy while the in-laws are in town for Christmas. $800

SAXX Vibe Boxer Briefs

Even without the patented (and hopefully self-explanatory) Ballpark Pouch, SAXX’S boxer briefs would be some of the most comfortable boxer briefs on the market, thanks to the soft-as-cotton, sweat-wicking viscose material. With the supportive pouch, they’re head and shoulders above any other pair on the market. $32

Polar Seal Heated Top

Hikers, skiers, outdoorsmen and even less active sports fans (wanting to stay warm in the bleachers) are going to love this base-layer quarter zip. Choose from two heating zones—in the upper and lower back—and three heating levels from the rubber, LED lit, shock and waterproof buttons on your wrist. The heat kicks in within 10-15 seconds and can last up to eight hours, or until your USB power bank (sold separately) runs out of juice. Trust us, it lives up to the hype. $179

Minimal, unassuming, and easy to set up, Sonos’ Playbase all but disappears in your living room — until you turn it on: this smart speaker enhances speech and dials down background noise, streams music from your phone and acts as a TV stand for sets up to 77 pounds.

Altra Torin IQ Running Shoes

Image placeholder title

It’s a shoe that doubles as a running coach: dual sensors within the soles of these running shoes measure a host of stats, including cadence, landing zone, and impact rate, analyzing your form. Then it sends that information to an app on your phone, which proceeds to give you feedback through your headphones while you run. $220

Based on tactical body armor vests, the plate carrier can add up to 20 pounds to your body weight without adding excessive bulk, while padded shoulders and the stretchable cummerbund keeps the weight from bouncing around while you move. $200

inov-8 BARE XF 210 V2

This super-minimalist training shoe features a thin, flexible outsole and rubber overlays on high-wear areas, making the shoe feel more like a reinforced sock than a cross-training shoe. Not only does it provide plenty of tactile input and stability during a workout, it also makes for an extremely comfortable shoe for walking around town. $110
