We all know that men are difficult to buy gifts for. What we do know, however, is that men love gadgets. In all the lists of cool gift ideas for men, electronic gadgets are listed as number one cool gift for men, followed by other gadgets upon gadgets, and a Lamborghini somewhere in between. Some must-have gift ideas for men, listed cell phone as number one. It seems that there was a survey done asking men if they would rather be on an island with their wife/fiancé/girlfriend or their cell phones, and 70% of men chose their cell phones. Astounding, isn't it? I mean astounding that 30% of the men surveyed who answered otherwise, lied.

How men survived the human species after years of receiving neckties as gifts for Christmas, Father's day and their birthdays, heaven only knows. Although it's been rumoured that some men had hanged the well-intentioned necktie giver using the necktie gift as a noose, no written records could be found.

Thank goodness for cool gadgets, right guys?

Most electronic gadgets are rather expensive. But men love gadgets of any sort. Men love gifts they could play with and tell their friends about their new toys. Men are really boys at heart. One thing I love about men is that most men don't really care how much you spend on their gift. It's how cool and fun the gift is, that matters to them. So unlike, women.

So, here are some really cool gift ideas for men in 2014. You might want to get a head start for Valentine's Day, Father's Day, Christmas and birthdays.

Cell Phone

As recent survey shows, cell phone is the number one cool gadget in your guy's list.

If he is an Apple iPhone user, chances are, he already got the new iPhone 5. Recent reports show that 62% of U.S. iPhone 5 sales have come from existing Apple iPhone owners who are upgrading to the new device. But, if he is waiting for you to surprise him with a new iPhone 5 for for his birthday, by all means, surprise the poor guy.

If your guy is an Android user, it is interesting to note that while the iPhone smartphone maintains a lead in the U.S., Android still dominates worldwide. However, taken as a single model, the iPhone is still the biggest seller globally, stronger than popular Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Among the Android phones, Samsung Galaxy S3 is the best to compare with the new iPhone 5. So, if you can't decide which smartphone to buy, here is a summary of an in-depth comparison recently published in Digital Trends between Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.

  • iPhone 5 is better than S3 when it comes to design and construction, screen quality, user interface, audio and video, cameras, voice assistants, and future updates.
  • S3 is better than iPhone 5 when it comes to feel, operating system features, charging and connecting accessories, maps, and battery life.
  • Tied when it comes to app stores, personalization, hardware specifications, and voice and LTE data service.

So, there you go. It's your call. One thing for sure, a new cell phone is a really cool gift for your man this Christmas, Father's Day, or his birthday.

I have not been attentive of my hubs lately, and had missed replying to your very kind and thoughtful comments. My bad. I apologize, and I thank you all for reading my hub and leaving me a comment. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I wish you all a wonderful day,


Keeley Shea from Norwich, CT on February 05, 2013:

Holy Cow! This is an informative hub!!!!! I love most of the stuff too. I have voted up and useful and will save it to my favorites for when it is time to buy gifts for dad, boyfriend, or my 2 boys, or my boss even! Super AWESOME!

Kathryn Kutny from New York State on December 03, 2012:

I like your gift ideas for men. I will have to get my hubby something from this list. I think he would love the floating globe!

LYNNCAPLAN on November 04, 2012:

Really cool atomic watch, got him one for fathers day last year. although when daylight savings does come around, unless you place the watch near a window overnight, its not so easy to reset. this year for his birthday it wasnt so easy. he always says he does not want anything, for me its always a struggle to find something nice that he will use for years to come, rather than getting a throw away gift. i did find an incredible quality messenger bag called the Tofino by RADBLACK. for those fussy men in your lives, try them.

cancerina on May 04, 2012:

yea but what to get a sporty boyfriend who is deeply into triathlon racing?? I cannot afford a bike, a special one..

car-leasing on March 30, 2012:

I Like the floating globes, they look really interesting.

HawaiiHeart from Hawaii on March 21, 2012:

That floating globe is so cool!

tarajeyaram from Wonderland on March 21, 2012:

Wow - very nice hub! Voting up and up. Men would be glad to get some of those gifts. Keep up the great job.

Rufus rambles from Australia on March 20, 2012:

Eliminate Cancer from Massachusetts on March 20, 2012:

I'll have to check this out again during the holidays :)

Reve from Dhaka on March 18, 2012:

On my point of view, it certainly depends on the age of the person. Most of the youth will not prefer having books as the gift, and you can certainly try out some cool gadgets as the gift. For adult, you can try out giving some books, watch and some other things according to their likings :)

cocofireah from USA on March 05, 2012:

Thanks for this great tips of gift ideas!Look like very god!

Java Programs from India on March 05, 2012:

Bien Fait Cakes from Greensboro on January 25, 2012:

There are some great ideas here, especially the floating globe and the spy gadgets. Both are great for all ages.

ukbusiness from Bristol, UK on January 25, 2012:

Like Derek said, I think a lot of these gifts would slowly go out of use and be later found at the back of a cupboard somewhere. That being said, I find it really hard to get presents that they will love and use regularly. Getting something that compliments a hobby is always a good idea

kxdorey from Beverly Hills, California, USA on January 13, 2012:

Wow are those spy gadgets ever cool. That is an awesome idea.

maryperales91 from Colorado Springs on January 12, 2012:

These are awesome gifts. My husband would love to get one of theses while he is deployed.

princesswithapen on December 19, 2011:


I stumbled upon this hub from Google while looking for a gift for a friend. The wireless headphones are an awesome gift idea. Men can enjoy watching the telly without bringing the house down! Awesome hub with a nice collection of gift ideas.


jbrock2041 from Park City, UT on December 06, 2011:

Great ideas, especially the wireless headphones. I know several guys that would love those. The one gift that made me chuckle a little bit was the floating globes. I've always wondered why men like to have globes in their office anyway. Are they with a client and one of them says, "Hmm maybe we should see where that is on the globe?" It just makes me laugh every time.

I appreciate ideas since I seem to be awful at shopping for gifts so thank you and perfect timing since I'm going out shopping today.

mattyfaz from Australia on December 05, 2011:

Nice ideas! I would actually really enjoy some of these :)

Chad Young from Corona, CA on December 05, 2011:

These are great ideas! I like the wireless TV headphones because my wife can't sleep when I'm watching TV in bed at night because of the sound...problem solved! great hub, voted up and useful.

Matt Stark from Albany, CA on December 05, 2011:

This hub is amazing! I pretty much only have to email this hub to my wife and my Christmas list is complete. Thanks!

Toni Brit-Toni from United Kingdom on December 05, 2011:

Great Hub Rosie, I was a bit gutted to see that you didn't have any toy RC helicopters, as they only cost about £15/20 an are so much fun around the house.

Brought one last year for the other half(lol not better half) and even I loved playing with it, best thing is last year they where round a houndred pounds mark so massive discounts.


observantmate on December 04, 2011:

nice hub for the holidays

ancestralstory from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on December 03, 2011:

Some nice ideas! I want one of those globes...that's pretty awesome.

CZCZCZ from Oregon on December 02, 2011:

Was enjoyable to look through this list of potential Christmas gifts for men. While I may pass on the floating globes, any of the gadgets would be a wonderful present to open this holiday season.

Charlie from Scotland on November 27, 2011:

Very nice hub. Three things you do really well here: Firstly, it is very well written and researched - those are certainly things that men would want for Christmas! Secondly, it is very clever how you combine your hub with products that might sell, I would be interested to know how many of the above items have been bought through this hub. The revenue you get from it musn't be too shabby! And finally, I could tell you were a woman by the first item, portable headphones so women don't have to listen to the damn sports on television all day! Haha, keep up the good hubs, I think you are on to something here!

Cynthia Zirkwitz from Vancouver Island, Canada on November 27, 2011:

thanks for the suggestions!

tjml on November 26, 2011:

nice info! these cheap gifts are very useful for men.

Jonathan McDowell on November 16, 2011:

I'll take one of each lol! Nice article.

Jonathan McDowell on November 16, 2011:

I'll take one of each lol! Nice article.

Edwin Chan from New Zealand on November 16, 2011:

I've always wanted a pair of wireless headphones, great to see the Sennheisers there too!

Kim Morgan Gregory from The Coast of The South Carolina Lowcountry on November 16, 2011:

Wow, great suggestions! Men are SOOOOooooo hard to buy for. Thanks for the insight to new ideas for gifts.

Will1015 from Brooklyn on November 16, 2011:

In truth, none of these gifts are necessities, but let's face it, men are impulsive. The majority of us don't always consider practicality. The fact is, this stuff is "cool" and that's what we want for gifts. Usually if we need something, we'll go get WHEN we need it (not usually ahead of time). I think cool novelty items are perfect gifts for most men. Great article!

Miss Paula on November 15, 2011:

This was very helpful,thanks for some great gift ideas.

GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having read the preceding comments, I was hesitant to add mine as I cannot enthuse so much about these “executive toys”. Most of these are the sort of gifts that seem a good idea at the time but will soon be consigned to the back of the cupboard once the initial novelty has worn off, and eventually find their way to the charity or thrift shop. Even the watches, which are probably the most useful of these items, do not suit everyone’s sense of style.

On the up side, I do like ‘Dead Fred’ and ‘Splat Stan; these I could just leave on my desk and use over and over again. They are a low-cost gift which you can give just for fun.

I'd be curious to know which "recent survey" said that men would rather be on an island with their cell phone than with their woman. Of course I guess it would all depends how often they make whoopi. On a side note, the Bucky balls are awesome and the dude knife holder made me laugh out loud.

Valerie Washington from Tempe, Arizona on November 14, 2011:

The TV headphones are a great gift for many men (and their long suffering wives!) because many men tend to be harder of hearing than their wives due to workplace noise.

I know I need the volume up higher than my wife, so the TV headphones would be great...unless she wants to talk!

Angela Joseph from Florida on April 24, 2011:

The little darlings are not so hard to please after all. You know, I notice the men everyday when I step into the elevator on work. The minute they get in they begin playing with their cell phones until they get off. Guess they never grow up.

L.L. Woodard from Oklahoma City on April 24, 2011:

You've featured some super cool gift ideas for men here. Can't imagine any guy getting one of these gifts and being disappointed.

Gets on April 24, 2011:
