Are you playing Santa to a guy or two this Christmas?Guys are hard to shop for, aren’t they? There are only so many years you can gift a beer club subscription or stuff their stocking with golf balls! While there are many fun gadgets they would enjoy using for a while, those start to collect dust after a month or two.
I had a lengthy conversation with my teenage son this morning about this very topic. All he wants is a drone with a Go-Pro on it. I reminded him that he already has a Go-Pro that never gets used. I also reminded him that he has a super cool remote control car with a built-in video camera that also doesn’t get used. He argued that he would use the drone, though. Things would be different this time. To which I replied, “riiiiight” in my most sarcastic voice. This mama won’t be spending $600 on a DJI Phantom Aerial UAV Drone Quadcopter for GoPro just so it can collect dust at the back of his closet with the rest of his electronic toys.
So, what should I get him? What should I get my husband? Guy gifts that are actually cool (and useful) are hard to find but here is a great list to help you get started:
