We all know that men love their gadgets, their toys. But what are their toys in 2009? What are the best gadgets for men? In this article, we'll explore 10 Christmas gadgets for men. Some are obvious. Others may not have entered your mind.
The number one Christmas gadget for men this year is the Amazon Kindle. The Kindle allows you to hold up to 3,500 books, magazines, and documents in the palm of your hand. Want a new book? The Kindle allows you to have it in less than 60 seconds with its built-in communication capabilities. With the introduction of a new, larger model this year, the Kindle is easily a "must-have" for the gadget man.
Men love to have great TV's and gadget-men like to have the top rated LCD TVs. This Christmas promises to be the Christmas of the LCDs with newer and larger models coming out all the time. From a 52 inch wonder to a small pocket LCD, you can find an LCD TV that he'll love this Christmas.
Gadget men like to be ahead of the curve. For these men, gift number three is the Roku Digital Video Player. This device lets you download movies from the Internet (Amazon, Netflix, Blockbuster) and watch them on your LCD TV. With this device, you will never need to rent a DVD again.
It's a stereotypical saying that men never ask for directions. With gift #4, they do not have to. Get the man in your life one of the latest GPS devices and he'll always know where he is and where he is going. And, today's portable GPS Navigator also does many other things like locate the nearest Walgreen's or steakhouse while listening to your favorite music.
Gadget men do not want to watch movies on DVD. This is so old school. Get your man a Blue Ray Disc Player for Christmas 2009. Combined with his new LCD television, he'll be in viewing heaven.
Gadget men not only need cameras, they need the best cameras. A little cheap digital will not do. The Gadget man needs an SLR camera. These are the ones that allow you to take all kinds of great pictures from any distance. A digital SLR (single lens reflex) will have him taking fantastic pictures that he'll show all of his friends.
One tech toy that all men must have is an MP3 player. The best MP3 player for the money right now is the iPod Touch. This iPod does everything short of make you breakfast. Look for special deals on this iPod during the holiday season.
A gadget man worth his salt is not confined by a set of headphones. The true gadget man plugs his iPod into a home stereo system that he plays throughout the house. If your man is in need, consider getting him a great home stereo for the holidays.
One of the smallest, coolest devices out there right now is the Flip Video Camcorder. This device fits in the palm of your hand and records hours of video in HD and then easily connects to your TV for inspired viewing.
And finally, as gift number ten, your beloved gadget man needs a Netbook. These are super-small but powerful computers that you can bring anywhere. In this connected world, it may end up being one of his favorite toys.
