So Christmas is only a few weeks away! Still looking for the best Christmas gifts for the men in your life? We’re here to help! This year we decided to do some research to find out what men were actively searching for online in 2011. As we suspected, of course: Gadgets…. Men want gadgets!
This page features the top 7 most wanted gadgets by men for 2011 & 2012.
#7. Garmin nuvi 1450 LMT GPS Navigation
The New Garmin Nuvi 1450 has FREE lifetime updates. If your man uses an old GPS unit, chances are his maps are outdated (hence, getting lost). Problem: The old GPS’ require paying for updates and no one wants to do that so the old units are pretty much… useless.
#6. Apple Ipod Touch 8 GB
The Apple IPod touch is great for music and apps (no phone service included). Does the man in your life go to the gym? Ride the subway? Is he a fan of music? Is he an Apple Junkie ? Then he’ll love an Apple Ipod Touch to complete his Apple gadgets. (I love mine!)
#5. Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Player
Roku 2 XS is basically Internet TV for ANY TV which allows you to stream apps such as Netflix, Amazon Video, and Pandora. It also allows you to play games such as Angry Birds with just a flick of the wrist with the motion-activated controller (similar to Wii controller). So if he’s a TV man, he’ll love this!
#4. Canon Rebel EOS T3i Digital SLR Camera
The Canon T3i is the hottest camera on the market for 2011 & 2012. If your man is a fan of taking pictures, he’ll love you for this one. (It’s on my list, too).
#3. Bose Soundlink Wireless Speakers
Bose Soundlink wireless speakers allows you to stream your music wirelessly from your phone – from just about anywhere. So if the man you love loves listening to music, he will definitely appreciate these.
#2 – Apple TV
Warning: you may lose your man to this one… It’s Apple TV! Apple TV is a cost effective way of turning any TV into a SmartTV with access to a ton of apps (similar to a smartphone) .
#1b. Kindle Fire Tablet
OK, so this one we all want. The Amazon Kindle Fire is the hottest new color touchscreen ereader we’re all drooling over. Watch Movies, TV, videos, read books, download apps… you name it.
- It’s in Color (the original Kindle was not)
- It’s a Touchscreen (swoon)
- It Destroys the Ipad price…$199 vs. $899? (sweet!)
#1a – Apple Ipad 2 Tablet
So due to some very upset men, we had to go ahead and add the Apple Ipad to this list. Here’s what men have to say about this one: ‘Ladies, if you really want to make an impression, get us the Ipad…we insist’.
So there you have it. The best gifts for men in 2011. Happy gifting!
