Don’t get the man in your life a tie. Sure, it seems like it’s something he needs (and it probably is), but don’t do it. No matter how fine the silk or how nicely it matches his favorite suit, a tie gift just has “afterthought” written all over it.
He’s better than that.
Also, don’t buy the man in your life a pair of pants. Yes, he certainly needs a new pair of pants, but that’s beside the point—it’s not what he wants. And while we’re at it, don’t buy him a belt, a tennis racket, a sommelier class, a wok, or a set of fishing lures. That is unless you secretly hate him and want to slowly drive him from your life via a steady parade of underwhelming holidays and birthdays.
What your brother/husband/boyfriend/son/dad/uncle wants and needs in his life is the latest technology. And it’s not just about status or frivolity—he needs to be empowered in our increasingly connected world. And he needs you to buy it for him.
In these uncertain economic times, it’s not like he’s going to buy himself a tiny grill-cleaning robot. He doesn’t need to have that in his life, but he also doesn’t want to spend his weekend chipping at old burnt meat when there’s a ROBOT that will do it for him!
That’s why you need to be the hero in this scenario and buy him the amazing technological doodad he won’t buy for himself. For that is why we have the holiday season and that is why we present you with this list of 9 amazing gifts for the man in your life.
1. DJI Phantom 3 Professional
Don’t let the man in your life fall behind in the race to rule the robot skies! At just under $1,300, the Phantom 3 Professional from DJI is a fairly big purchase, BUT it packs in enough quality features to make it one of the best consumer drones you can buy. With automated take-off and landing, built-in GPS, and 4K video capture capabilities, the Phantom 3 gives users an unparalleled view of everything around them. What better gift could there be than the very sky itself?! (Or, at least the sky under 400 feet, per FAA regulations.)
