Top 13 Male Christmas Gifts
If you are looking for the perfect Christmas gift for your partner, the man in your life, your son, your Father or even your Grandfather your best bet is to zoom in on gadgets rather than cloths and cologne. Of course, it all really depends on how much you are willing to spend or what the spending limit which was recommended in your gift exchange.
We all know that most men need a little help in the wardrobe department, but just like when they were little kids brightly wrapped underwear is still underwear and not really a gift to dance around the house for (unless you know what kind of underwear they like). If you are really looking to wow that man in your life this year then one of these top requested gadgets is a better idea to put a smile on his face.
1) Amazon Kindle starting around $139
The Kindle is a e-read and because it is a gadget it is much cooler then a book. If your guy likes to read but thinks books cramp his style a Kindle is a great gift. He can easily download his favorite books, magazines and newspapers and read then on the go.
2) Parrot AR. Drone helicopter $300
If your guy likes toys (and what guy doesn’t) this little remote controlled helicopter is a great idea. The heli is operated via iPhone app and has two built in cameras, one that faces forward and one that faces down so he can catch all the action when he scares the heck out of the cat.
For full professional capabilities you cannot do better than the Nikon D3S ($5199) This camera has all the bells and whistles and can even shoot clearly at night in a dark ally.
If your guy is more of a point and shoot then the Panasonic Lumix LX5 ($500) is a better idea.
4) Motorola Droid X $200
Currently the most perfect cell phone on the market. It has a large screen, multimedia and an easy to use keyboard among other features. For around $200 it does not get any better.
The newest iPad from Apple is slated to come out in the early part of 2011 and is well worth the wait. The new generation is rumored to not only be smaller and lighter but will also fix a few problems like connection networks and camera capabilities. If your guy has been dreaming of an iPad then a gift certificate to get the next generation is a great idea and well worth the wait.

For the guy on the go there is nothing better than a high tech way to stay safe on the go. We all use our cell phones and you really need a good hands-free head set for the car.
7) Sony Bravia LX900 3-D HDTV $3600
What man would not love to watch a 3-D movie right from home. This television looks just as good in 2-D as 3-D.
