If you’ve ever been shopping for a man then you probably know hard difficult it can be. Especially if it’s a man you care deeply about. Chances are that you just want to buy him a great gift but you just don’t know what to get him. For this article we wanted to give you some ideas. We compiled some of the best gift ideas for men. Each of these gift ideas were handpicked by our authors. We wanted to choose gifts that we thought your man would absolutely love. After all we all have men in our lives and I know exactly how you feel. It doesn’t matter if your shopping for a brother, father, or even a friend these are some of the best gifts we could come up with.
Apple iPad: Our first gift suggestion is one of the hottest gift ideas this year. If you’ve never heard of the iPad it’s another great product brought to you by Apple. The iPad is a tablet computer that can be used for entertainment, reading, and even browsing the web. The Apple iPad allows you to watch movies, listen to music, and much more. Which is exactly why we decided to recommend it as our first gift suggestion. We thought this was one of the best gift ideas for all those tech guys out there who like gadgets.
For the most part the iPad was well received by critics and the reviews are mainly positive. One of the only problems that we had with this gift idea is that it’s actually not cheap. In fact the Apple iPad will cost you a couple hundreds of dollars depending on where you buy it. You could probably shave some bucks off the price by buying used. Ultimately I definitely think that the iPad is worth buying. The reason being is that there is a huge community of developers who make applications for it. Which means that the iPad will ultimately pay itself off when you download some of the free games and utilities.
Xbox 360: Our next gift suggestion is another big ticket item. We decided to suggest an Xbox 360 for all of those guys out there. Since the Xbox 360 is popular for it’s shooting game titles. Which are titles that grown men are more accustomed to playing. We thought it would make a great gift. The reason we wanted to suggest an Xbox 360 in particular is because it has dozens of popular titles. One in particular is a game called Halo. If you’re mans into gaming then chances are that he already has it.
Just in case you don’t know what an Xbox 360 is it’s a video game console that’s produced by Microsoft. It’s one of the most popular video game consoles at the writing of this article and it’s actually my personal favorite. Unfortunately an Xbox 360 will cost you a few hundred dollars as well. However we definitely know that it will be worth it. Since most men out there would jump at the chance of getting an Xbox 360 for Christmas.
Nook: Our next gift suggestion is perfect for all those guys out there who like to read. If you know a guy that likes to read then you’ve got a great gift suggestion. The reason we wanted to recommend this product is that it has a lot of different benefits just like the iPad. One of those many benefits include reducing demand for pulp products. It reduces the demand for paperback books which ultimately helps the environment. Of course the nook not only helps the environment it will also help your pocketbook.
Since a lot of the “digital” downloads cost less than the price of a paperback book. On top of that you’ll also be able to carry an entire library around with you wherever you go. If you don’t know what the Nook is it’s basically a eReader that’s brought to you by Barnes and Noble. The device was created specifically to compete with the Kindle. However in this article we’re suggesting buying the Nook. You can find the Nook available for $149 with wi-fi. Alternatively you could buy the 3g wi-fi version for around $259.
iTouch: For our last gift suggestion we’re going to recommend another great Apple product. Just like the iPad the iTouch will pay for itself. The reason that this author is a fan of Apple is that they have a huge following. Which means that there is a lot more developers making applications for them than any other device on the market. What does that mean exactly? A lot more applications and development. When I bought my iTouch I was surprised at exactly how many applications there were. I was able to find an application for almost everything I could possibly want.
As I mentioned before the iTouch will ultimately pay for itself. You’ll be able to download dozens of games for free. The game range from strategy all the way to online shooters. On top of that you can also download eBooks and read them anytime you want. If you don’t like to read books then you can just download comics. The iTouch is probably one of the best gifts available for those men out there. The price tag is typically in the hundreds of dollars. However just like all of the suggestions in this article you could save money by buying used.
