Looking for that perfect gift (for yourself or) for that special man in your life? We know that buying a gift for someone who’s already got everything in life during this holiday season can be a challenge. After all, a true geek’s life should be filled with all the latest gadgets with no waiting. But what else can flawlessly compliment his perfect collection? Here are some ideas for you:
It’s a more than a heart-rate monitor and more than a GPS fitness watch. Spark is the latest sports wristband from TomTom that has all the bells and whistles plus more. With a built-in music player, you can add your playlists to this TomTom without having it linked to a smartphone. Easy setup to a pair of Bluetooth headphones, this latest Spark gives you that freedom without being tied to carrying a phone around when you’re out for a jog. As part of the latest upgrade, the famous Dutch GPS maker also added daily activity tracking, splitting steps and sleep. This TomTom is slimmer and has a new strap to secure the watch for your active lifestyle. Any active man in your life would be more than happy to see this as a gift on the Christmas morning.
Bose SoundLink wireless headphones
You want to feel that rhythm on the road but without feeling tied up? Bose’s SoundLink (over-the-ear) wireless headphones II may just be that perfect music machine for you. Highly recommended by many as the best in its class, this pair of SoundLink will give you a whole new wireless experience unlike others. With 15 hours of battery life, multi-point for connecting two devices, quick pairing and easy switching between music and calls, this pair of SoundLink will give you that smooth sound only from Bose. It’s great all-day use and definitely built to be portable. For less than $300, this pair of Bose can be your top choice when it comes to choosing the right mobile sound this holiday season.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean (Black edition)
With dozens of electric toothbrushes out there today, which will you wrap up as the ultimate gift for that chic geek in your life? We have leveled the playing field for you as we think Philips’ Sonicare DiamondClean (the black edition) should be your only choice. Sleek and portable, but most of all it’s powerful and does the job right. It was also personally recommended by my periodontist, who has recently performed an excruciating gum-repair surgery (gum grafts) on me. The black edition not only will do the daily cleaning thoroughly, it is portable and can go wherever you go. Philips has packaged it so well, it would actually be a shame not to show it off on your bathroom countertop or when traveling to a desired destination.
Samsung Gear VR
It’s a flawless creation birthed by both Samsung and Oculus. It’s a goggle that provides virtual reality with perfect viewing, including 3D, for gaming and entertainment. This recently released consumer model is probably one of the best and the cheapest VR machines in the market. This version is smaller and lighter and is compatible with more Samsung phones (the Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+) than ever. Its content library (the number of apps) has also tripled since the earlier days. More apps and games are available for you now to experience the Gear VR. Virtual reality has finally become part of the mainstream tech. And if you or someone you know owns a Samsung phone, this is a no-brainer must-buy.
Frank & Oak peacoat
At Geektown, we normally don’t make fashion statements in our gift guides. But this year, we have made an exception. We are selling you the idea of buying a Frank & Oak peacoat for your man. This Montreal-based men’s fashion retailer launched its business by building itself as an e-tailer only, but later transformed itself into an ultra chic boutique chain across North America for all men with good taste. We chose to shine the spotlight on their peacoat for its design and impeccable attention to detail. By the look of its Black Friday and Cyber Monday ads popping up all over the Internet, we know that this may just be the perfect time to try on a Frank & Oak.
