Men are notoriously hard to shop for, so finding the perfect gift, especially if the said men look like they have everything they need, is a really daunting task.
That’s why we have rounded up a list of the best cool gadgets for men to please any male gift recipient no matter how picky he might be. What’s more, none of the following picks (except for no. 8) will break the bank.
Cool Gadgets For Men You Need to Consider in 2019
Here are 10 cool gadgets for men that should definitely make it on more people’s wish lists this year.
Bose Audio Sunglasses
Here’s a pair of sunglasses like you’ve never seen before. They come with integrated Bose speakers which allow you to listen to your favorite music while people around you hear nothing.
However, the open-air technology enables you to also participate in a conversation while the music is still playing. You can even make phone calls through these speakers and connect to your smartphone’s virtual assistant via Bluetooth.
The sunglasses reportedly block 99% of harmful solar radiation, which is an added bonus.
Seffel Mug Warmer/ Wireless Phone Charger
What can you ask for more out of life than a hot cup of coffee and a fully charged phone on a chilly workday morning? This gizmo has only one temperature setting (135F), which is the perfect temperature for a hot cup of java and manages to keep coffee at that temperature for 30 minutes or more.
The saucer doubles as a wireless phone charger and it is compatible with most Android and iPhone phones. As a big plus, the mug warmer doesn’t run on batteries and it can be charged via USB.
Other mug warmers run on batteries, but they can barely hold a charge even though some of them are way more expensive.
The coffee mug warmer makes a really cool gift for guys who work in an office or have an unhealthy appetite for all-things coffee.
Memory Card Storage Case and Reader (USB)
Does your gift recipient have an impressive collection of memory cards? Give him this neat Swiss army knife-style 2-in-1 memory card storage case and USB micro SD card reader.
It fits 8 Micro SD cards and 3 SD cards, but it is also compatible with SDHC, SDXC and TF cards. This makes the perfect gift for a man with a keen interest in action cams and quality drone footage.
The Echo (3rd Gen)
For the high tech enthusiast and audiophile in your life, this premium 360 degree audio speaker with Alexa capability will make the perfect gift regardless of occasion
You can ask Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, to perform various commands but the coolest in our book is the ability to order neat things like pizza and pay for them online with a simple voice command.
The 3rd Generation Echo has a crisper and overall better sound and bass than the 2nd Gen Echo, aka the Echo Plus. Get the Echo Plus only if you really really reeeeally need the built-in Zigbee hub.
The Atomic Bear Self-Defense Tactical Pen
This oddly shaped tactical pen is not only a great writing utensil, but a non-lethal self-defense weapon and a window breaker too.
The pen has a rugged and heavy duty construction that can withstand plenty of abuse (including a that from a Pit bull’s strong jaws), and comes with a spare ink cartridge and access to an online self defense class.
Unlike other tactical pens, this is fully refillable and the cap doesn’t need to be unscrewed (it slides off with a firm pull).
PhoneSoap 3 – UV Smartphone Sanitizer & Universal Charger
The average mobile phone is reportedly nearly 20 times dirtier than a public restroom, so the PhoneSoap 3 can really come in handy here.
This extremely cool but underrated gadget will sanitize your smartphone through its scientifically proven germicidal UV-C bulbs and double as a universal charger.
It even sports both a USB and a USB-C port. It fits nearly any smartphone, including the larger one like the iPhone 8+ and the Galaxy S10+. Check out the test video on the manufacturer’s website. Our instant reaction? WOW!
Bluetooth Beanie Hat w/Headphones
This Bluetooth Beanie Hat w/Headphones is another entry on our list of the best cool gadgets for men this year because it can be easily paired with a phone and allows 8 hours of continuous playback before the battery runs dry.
You can even answer phone calls while wearing it and the sound is super crisp and clear. The speakers fit right over the ears and the beanie overall looks very stylish and has a snug fit. And at the current Amazon price, this Bluetooth beanie is a steal.
The AirPods Pro
If you are looking for a really cool gift that your tech aficionado recipient likely does not have but definitely wants, try the much-hyped AirPods Pro.
Apple’s latest AirPods are all the rage now because they sound crisper than the previous model and have much cooler features, like noise cancellation capability, water resistance, and a much-anticipated in-ear design.
What’s more, the AirPods Pro are easier to connect to your iPhone than their predecessors, which is another big bonus for the new model. They come with 4.5 listening time and 3.5 hours talk time, which is also an improvement when compared to the predecessor.
Cool Laptop Cooling Pad
If you want a cool gadget for men that like to play video games on their laptops, then look no further than this laptop cooling pad.
The Cooler Master NotePal X3 does its job, has no distracting lights, and is perfect for long gaming sessions. It is also a handy prop when using the laptop while in bed.
But the best part about it is that it can be customized. Out of the box, it sports three 120 mm fans, but with a little patience and skill you can add 3 more.
Fire TV Stick 4k with In-Built Alexa
If the man on your gift list is keen on watching programming when he likes it and how he likes it, than the Fire TV Stick is the answer to all his prayers.
The Fire Tv Stick is currently the best streaming media stick that can support Ultra HD streaming (also known as 4K), HDR, and HDR 10+.
The current model comes with a fully revamped remote control, lower latency so you no longer have to worry about laggy menus, and smart voice control (you can ask Alexa to change TV input, but Alexa is entirely optional.)
Don’t forget to check out our ultimate list of useful gadgets of the year too. Maybe you can find something for the guys on your gift list there, as well.
