Coming up with the perfect gift is something of a skill. Far too often, shopping for a gift is a source of stress, when it should be a joyful experience. Buying for a man can present a whole other range of challenges, as many guys are just not great about saying what they want. That’s where you come in, and dazzle with your powers of intuition. Or your access to a curated list of gift options.
The following five gifts can help you find the perfect present for the man in your life. Feel free to take full credit…we don’t mind.
1.) Not Just Another Bag
Does your guy still shlep his stuff around in a worn-out bag that he’s been using for years? Offer a whole new world of carrying convenience with the Travelon Men’s Anti-Theft Heritage Backpack.
This backpack is so much more than…well…a backpack. But let’s start at the beginning. Made of durable canvas in a cool weathered finish, the bag has a roomy inner compartment with a padded computer sleeve. Two front pockets offer easy access, and can be locked for additional security. The straps are padded for a comfortable fit, even of work all day.
But wait. There’s more. This bag also offers security features, including a special zippered RFID blocking pocket. That means passing would-be thieves won’t be able to steal his credit card info with one of their high-tech scanner weapons.
If this isn’t enough, there’s also a detachable key clip with an integrated LED light.

2.) Light up His Life
If your guy is into the whole retro, industrial, steampunk vibe, then he would love a Bird Cage Design Desk Lamp for his home or office.
This awesome lamp is crafted from iron pipe with authentic industrial fittings, and sits on an aged wooden base. The bird cage surround is the perfect way to showcase an Edison bulb (not included) for a truly retro style.
Of course, you are going to hear about how he could have built this himself, and how he’s going to make another one that is even more authentic…

3.) The Man Can
No, it’s not a man in a can. That product is on a different list altogether. The Man Can is a gift basket specifically designed for the man in your life, with plenty of products that he doesn’t even know he wants.
Men like to be pampered just as much as women do; they just don’t like to actually go out and shop for bath and body products. The Man Can offers the perfect solution. The set includes a bar of soap, Bay Rum oil, shave gel, hand butter and a “scratchy body accessory.”
All very manly, all top quality. Best of all, it comes packaged in a paint can, including a can/bottle opener to get into the thing.

4.) Take it to the Skies
Who doesn’t love a high-tech, fun and functional toy? No one, that’s who. Give your guy the chance to feel like a kid again with the Holy Stone F181 RC Quadcopter Drone.
This copter is easy to control, but has amazing specs including 360° 4-Way Flip that allows for a continuous roll in any direction. The range is 50-100 meters, and an Altitude Control Function lets the drone hover at a consistent height.
An HD camera is included, and collects quality images and video. Best of all, the drone is equipped with a return function and security system to prevent loss.
This is a great gift option to elevate your present skills to a higher level. Literally.

5.) Keeping Things Chill
When it comes to insulated beverage holders, the market is somewhat saturated. It can be hard to know which product to choose, and some can set you back a pretty penny.
A Corkcicle Arctican is a great option that provides excellent insulating properties without breaking the bank. This stainless steel insulated can and bottle holder will keep his drink of choice cold for up to 3 hours, even when used in the direct sun.
The cooling power comes from a removable cooling core that stays in the freezer. When he’s ready to head out, he just slips the twist-on core into the sweatless and stainless steel body, then pops in a can or bottle of his favorite drink. A felt sleeve protects glass bottles.
The Corkcicle Arctican is available in a range of colors, including a cool olive green or high-visibility white.
