Holiday Tech Gift Guide for the Man in Your Life

 Holiday shopping for the special guy in your life can be taxing — especially if you aren’t quite sure where your relationship is going yet! Whether you just started dating or you’ve been married for years, knowing the rules of gift giving can help ensure you’re giving your gent a great, yet appropriate gift.

Here’s a helpful holiday guide to finding the perfect tech gift for your guy — at every stage of a relationship:

Newly Dating

When you first start dating, you’ll want to get him something nice, but not freak him out by spending too much money.

Think about accessorizing his mobile electronics collection while making his life easier with portable power. The Justin Power Case by Innovative Technology is a lightweight case that protects an iPad while giving it and all your other mobile devices a boost through the case’s universal USB charging port and built-in rechargeable slim-line battery.

The Boyfriend

Whether he is a bystander or an adventurer, if your boyfriend likes his music, podcasts or sports stats wherever he is, a Bluetooth enabled water-resistant speaker, such as the Slingshot Speaker from BlueFlame, allows him to bring his music and news in the shower, to the beach, by the pool, or tailgating at his team’s game.

Is he an active mobile guy?  Consider upgrading his uncomfortable, lower quality earbuds with the Munitio SV Mobile Performance Earphones.  Ideal for runners, bikers, snowboarders, or any weekend warrior, these gift-priced buds also offer an in-line mic for calls on-the-go.

The Newlywed

Want to spoil your husband during your first holiday season as a married couple? For serious audio fans, consider a pair of SVS`s Bookshelf Speakers, which provide a massive soundstage with refined acoustics so you’ll never need a night out at the movie theater again.

The Hubby

When the focus has shifted from spoiling your husband to spoiling the kids, look for a gift that benefits the home and prevents the need for that “honey-do” list.  A high-quality silent garage door opener is the perfect home improvement gift for you, for him, for the house.  Look for an energy-efficient model with safety features that’s also battery backup compatible, such as those from Linear.

Empty Nesters

If your kids have moved out, now is the time to travel and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Transform your space into a high-tech smart home and give the gift of peace of mind for those times when you’re away.

 A Control4 home automation system lets you monitor and remotely manage your home’s lighting, climate control and security from the company’s MyHome app on your smartphone or tablet from nearly anywhere in the world.  When you are home, enjoy the benefits of an automated system that can control your home theater, music and intercom.

This holiday season, give your man a present that not only complements his tastes, but complements your relationship as well.
