Women know what they want when it comes to gifts and generally expect us to read their minds and know what they want, too. Yet, it’s not so easy for them when it comes to getting gifts for the men in their lives. Most men don’t put much on their Wish Lists and so our significant others end up thinking the perfect gifts are socks, sweaters, a case of beer, and a round of golf.
We can all do better. So, here is the ultimate men’s gift guide that will surely knock those socks and sweaters out of the round up for good.

Guaranteed to leave your face so smooth and pretty irresistible.

DJI Phantom 3 4K
The truth is guys love gadgets and not just any old gadget. Bring us the good toys. This DJI Phantom is the ultimate tech gadget mixed with the reminiscence of childhood robots coming to life.

But, for the simple yet high tech kind of guy, this Samsung Gear S2 Smartwatch is sleek, minimalistic yet powerful, and eye-catching. Linking all your android devices has never been easier and seamless.
Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle
A water bottle is a water bottle. Yet, we love this one because it has the fancy insulation but the design isn’t something that your wife or child is making you carry around for them. Sleek, simple, minimal, and functional. We love anything and everything that’s functional. And, yes, that drone (above) is also totally functional.
Ray-Ban Sunglasses ‘Classic Clubmaster’
Whether we want to admit or not, we really love sunglasses. It makes us feel fashionable, mysterious, cool, hip, and maybe even Brad Pitt-ish. Picture your guy outside with these classic Rayban sunglasses flying his drown around with a smartwatch on his wrist. Pretty happy sight, isn’t it?

Imagine hands-free help from our best friend, Google. Google knows everything and now they’ve figured out that you don’t want to type your search anymore. “Ok, Google, how many days until Christmas” is all you have to say for Google to give you all the answers. This device can stream music, check your email, link to your Nest to control the thermostat in your home, and so much more. The only thing it can’t do is fly your drone, you’ll have to do that yourself. #sorrynotsorry
YI 4K Action Camera
The YI 4K Action Camera is the ultimate dupe for the GoPro. It’s sleeker, comes in 3 different colors, and performs phenomenally. You can record 120 minutes off of a single charge which your phone can’t even do. With an amazing image stabilizer, picture editing ability, high-speed wi-fi, and LCD Gorilla Glass retina touch screen, you’ll be able to beautifully capture all your most precious moments.
REI Trail 25 Pack
Backpacks are making a comeback because of one thing: functionality. A man bag is fashionable, a briefcase is outdated, but a backpack is hip, fresh, and efficient.

You now have two hands-free to chase your kids, fly your drone, and walk your dog.
