They say that every man needs a knife. And a screwdriver. And a pair of pliers. You probably see where this is going.
Well, what if your boyfriend could have all of these and more, all in his pocket or bag? These are what make Swiss Army knives and other multitools such wonderful presents for men.
Of course, it’s important to get a quality multitool that won’t fail your man in his times of need. One of the best starter multitools is this Leatherman Sidekick, which will set you back a $125, but should last him a lifetime. If you look harder, you might be able to find it on sale at a discounted price elsewhere.
2. VR Headset
If your boyfriend is a gamer, there’s a fair chance that one of the best gifts for him is a pair of virtual reality goggles to immerse him in faraway worlds.
While the more expensive and fully-featured headsets cost hundreds of dollars and need to be paired with a gaming console or a powerful PC, there are also simple headsets that let you slide your phone in for a stunning experience.
This VR headset costs just $50 but will whisk your partner away on amazing adventures. It’s a cute gift that’s good for more than a few hours of fun.
One of the most underrated gadgets for men is a reliable power bank. After all, in an age where cameras, laptops, smartphones, and even smartwatches are all essential to a man’s daily activities, being left without power can be a hassle of the highest order.
This $100 power bank gives you standard 2A USB powers that will quickly charge almost any supported device, plus powerful 30W USB-C ports that can charge MacBooks and Nintendo Switches for on-the-go work and play.
4. Luxury Watch
If you’re looking for a good gift for a big day like an anniversary or birthday, a luxury watch is a tried-and-tested solution that’s not a terribly unique gift, but will definitely be appreciated.
This Tag Heuer watch is one of the cheapest models from the famed luxury watch brand. With 200-meter water resistance and a gorgeous chronograph layout, it’s as good as it gets at the $1800 price point.
Wanna give your boyfriend a happy Christmas? Get him a pair of top-quality headphones that will open up his ears to a whole new world of sound quality that few ever experience. Wireless, noise-cancelling, and reputably-branded are three big characteristics that you should look out for if you want the best possible bang for your buck.
These $400 Sony headphones tick all the boxes, and are pretty much the “quality ceiling” for many music enthusiasts. Past this point, few people can actually hear the difference!
Most men don’t have the luxury of handbags to keep everything they need in, but then they hardly need anything on their person to begin with. For most men, you’re looking at a phone, car and home keys, and a wallet. While the first two are pretty much up to him, you can take control of the latter and get your boyfriend a fancy wallet for his cash, cards, and ID.
This wallet features genuine distressed leather for that vintage look, and also packs in RFID blocking capabilities for that extra layer of security.
