Tis the season for giving, and if you're still looking for gift ideas for the tech-savvy friends on your list, we may be able to help. Gifts For Men has curated a list of fun, high-quality products that'll make great gifts for your favourite techie.
Everyone needs this if they own a Mac. This one is a no-brainer. If you have a friend who has multiple devices, they will need one of these cables to connect all their devices to an external monitor. Just make sure they don't already have one! Sharing files is always nice when you need to work on something with a coworker.
The AirBar will turn any computer into a touchscreen without a camera or an additional display. The technology uses ultrasonic sensors; ultrasound is a much more accurate method than infrared in getting the cursor to fall exactly where intended. Created by AirBar Technologies, the AirBar connects through Bluetooth and can run for up to two years on a single pair of AA batteries.
DVI cable: If you know anyone currently using a different display, this is a must-have for them. Even if they are using the same display as before, it never hurts to have someone test their setup and confirm its functionality!
This one may not be as useful as some of the other gifts on this list, but it's still good to have around just in case. Everyone is on their phone all the time now, so why not include a dock to make their experience even better? You can even consider buying one with an SD card slot to upload their media directly with ease. Buy one that's portable so they can throw it in their laptop bag whenever the need arises.
The Tile Mate 4-Pack
This gift idea is one that even those who live and breathe technology would appreciate. The Tile Mate 4-Pack features 4 tile devices (EVERYDAY CARRY ITEMS) which can help keep track of your belongings whether they're in the house or on the go. These devices work via Bluetooth and are super easy to use: attach to whatever item you want to track—like your keys, backpack, or laptop—and when you start to lose the said item, use your smartphone's GPS feature to locate it.
Charge your devices wherever and whenever you want with this ultra-efficient RAVPower charger. It features four USB ports, including one 2.4A port for Apple products, and it allows you to charge up to four devices simultaneously. This is the perfect gift for anyone who always seems to be down to their last charge!
Tired of not having enough space on your phone? With this Tile Pro 4TB portable hard drive, you won't have to worry anymore! It features a built-in high-speed USB 3.0 cable, allowing you to transfer photos, music, and files between your computer and external storage super quickly.

Multi-Touch Trackpad Protector
It is a fact that no matter how careful we are, eventually, scratches and marks will appear on our MacBooks. This happens from people constantly using them and sometimes just plain old wear and tear. We want to give your friend something useful and practical this Christmas that they will love and appreciate. When they need to replace the standard trackpad, they will remember you and the gift you gave them.
This trackpad protector has a textured design that provides a comfortable feel, enhances accuracy, and prevents slipping and sliding around on smooth surfaces. It can be applied easily with little mess or clean up and is easy to remove as needed. The product also comes with a one-year limited warranty for peace of mind when giving this gift.
The Anker Astro E1 Portable Charger
Too often, think of the iPad or tablet as the main device techies use. However, smartphones are the most widely used device today because of their versatility.
A smartphone can do everything from acting as your assistant to acting as a remote control for your television or just about any other electronic device that plugs into a wall. For this reason, having a quality portable charger is a must-have accessory for any smartphone user. If you are shopping for someone who loves to travel or is always on the road for work, a portable charger is an indispensable tool.
The Anker Astro E1 Portable Charger offers the best value in a portable charger. It has an ultra-compact design and an internal battery that charges quickly and holds its charge well over time. Its performance is consistently superior to competing chargers and its price can't be beat.
Unihertz Atom Pro
The Atom Pro is the world's most secure smartwatch. It has an octa-core processor and an impressive 480×480 resolution display. The watch has a number of features like: camera, GPS locator, Bluetooth connectivity and S-Voice. You can also use the watch to make/answer calls and send/receive text messages.
Not only is it a great gift for techies, but it's compatible with both android and iOS devices. This makes it easy for multiple people in the family to use it. Additionally, the smartwatch has a magnetic charger that it connects to. This makes it safe for kids since there's no way for them to hurt themselves with the charger. For instance, they won't be able to get shocked by sticking their finger in it.
