2021-Holiday-Gift-Guide-Tech

There are so many new tech releases on a regular basis that it can be hard to keep track of what came out this month, let alone the rest of the year. This was a great year for tech with hundreds of new releases ranging from phones and laptops, to cameras and speakers, and everything else in between. We picked out a dozen of the best tech gifts for men.

Fossil-Gen-6-Smartwatch

Fossil Gen 6 Smartwatch

When it comes to men’s gifts around the holidays, a watch is a safe bet. If you want the classic looks of an analog watch with all the functionality of a smartwatch, you won’t find better than the Fossil Gen 6. The powerful new Snapdragon platform with increased performance rapid recharging are great, but we’re much more taken by the stylish design, easy to read 1.28″ AMOLED display and performance tracking. This is the smartwatch for people who don’t want to feel like they’re wearing a computer on their wrist.

$319
Sonos-Roam-Portable-Bluetooth-Speaker

Sonos Roam Portable Bluetooth Speaker

There are plenty of average quality Bluetooth speakers you can pickup on Amazon for a fraction of the cost of the Sonos Roam–we own dozens of them–but none of them perform like this beaut. In addition to the precision-engineered acoustics that deliver incredible audio quality, it has automatic tuning, 10 hours of continuous playback, IP67 dust/water/shock resistance and built-in smart assistants.

$179
GoPro-Hero10-Black

GoPro Hero10 Black

The brand that essentially built the action camera market is back with the all new GoPro Hero10 Black. The most powerful GoPro ever is packing a revolutionary GP2 processor, 5.3K video with double the frame rate, 23MP stills, HyperSmooth 4.0 stabilization and cloud connection for automatic uploads. This is the only action camera worth buying this year.

Apple-iPhone-13

Apple iPhone 13

The new iPhone 13 is here, and is probably going to be the most asked for holiday gift this year. The design hasn’t changed much, but each of the four different options (13 / 13 Mini / 13 Pro / 13 Pro Max) is outfitted with a new processor, bigger battery, brighter screen, larger storage options and, most importantly, significant camera upgrades like 12-megapixel ultrawide sensors and new lenses (depending on model).

$700+
Arcade1Up-Arcade-Console

Arcade1Up Arcade Console

Nothing ties a basement, rec room, or man cave together like an arcade cabinet, but original arcade cabinets are hard to find and stupid expensive. Arcade1Up is remaking all the classics from Ms. Pac-man and Galaga, to NBA Jam and Mortal Kombat II, to Pong and TMNT II, in 3/4 scale upright, head-to-head arcade table or Countercade options (depending on the game) with modern tech and the vintage control feel.

$230+
Native-Union-Heritage-Valet-Wireless-Charger

Native Union Heritage Valet Wireless Charger

We can’t imagine a world without wireless phone charging or a valet tray on the nightstand to store your essentials. So get the perfect men’s gift and combine both. The Native Union Heritage Valet Wireless Charger offers a unique blend of the finest Italian leather and aircraft-grade aluminum to create a statement piece that looks great even when you’re not using it.

Braun-BC21-Digital-Alarm-Clock-with-Wireless-Charging-Pad

IKEA x Sonos Symfonisk Speaker Lamp

What’s better than upgrading your home audio setup with high-end Sonos speakers? When that same home audio upgrade is built into a stylish, functional lamp like this collaborative piece from IKEA. The IKEA x Sonos Symfonisk Speaker Lamp comes in black or white with two shade options and works with other Sonos products or your streaming services.

Braun-BC21-Digital-Alarm-Clock-with-Wireless-Charging-Pad

Braun BC21 Digital Alarm Clock with Wireless Charging Pad

Bespoke alarm clocks aren’t something all that common anymore, but that could change with the Braun BC21. In addition to having the iconic clock style Braun has become known for over the years, the BC21 also has a wireless charging pad to keep your phone juiced up while you’re resting. Bonus points because it also has a smashable snooze button.

$113+
Microsoft-Surface-Laptop-Studio

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio

If there were any doubts Microsoft Surface devices no longer play second fiddle to the Windows alternatives, they’ve been quashed with the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio. It’s a fully functional laptop with all the greatest tech combined with a fold-flat screen that allows it to function as a tablet. For all the people that still insist on using Windows, this is a game changing piece of tech.

$1600
Polaroid-Now-i-Type-Instant-Camera

Polaroid Now+ i-Type Instant Camera

We love our phone cameras, but there’s something to be said for the instant gratification of printing a physical picture in the moment. The Polaroid Now+ i-Type Instant Camera combines that experience with Bluetooth connectivity for extra creative tools inside the Polaroid mobile app, along with five physical lens filters for more fun. When it comes to cameras, this is the best of old meets new tech.
