Let’s mix things up around here and talk about 18 WAY cool gifts for guys sold on Amazon. An Amazon gift guide of sorts that’ll help you discover nifty gifts for your dad, brother, boyfriend, or husband. From tech products and gadgets to the more practical, this gift guide has you covered, especially when shopping for guys who are “hard to shop for” and seem to have everything. I’m guessing you’ll want to keep a few of these cool gifts for yourself this Christmas.
1. Sunday Lightweight Golf Bag
If you know a weekend warrior (like myself) the Sunday Golf Bag is the perfect gift, especially if the golfer in your life typically only plays smaller 3-par or “executive” courses.
Coming in at an astonishing 1.95 pounds, the bag is very light and REALLY easy to carry.
It holds 6-7 clubs, looks WAY cool, and even has a “valuables” pocket.
It’s also great if you’re heading to the driving range and only taking a few clubs.
The folks at Sunday Golf make very high quality bags for men, women, and kids.
2. Bose SoundLink Speaker
What guy doesn’t like a portable speaker that ACTUALLY sounds great.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a better sounding Bluetooth speaker for the price than the Bose SoundLink.
It come in 5 colors so you can show-off your personal style to the world.
It’s a pretty rugged speaker too with a soft-touch silicone exterior that will hold up over time.
Setup is also a breeze as it has voice prompts that walk you through the Bluetooth pairing process.

3. ASUS VivoBook Pro 15
The 15.6″ full HD display on this ASUS Laptop will turn heads and is the ultimate “guy” laptop.
It also comes with the AMD Quad Core R7-3700 processor that makes it an absolute speed burner and great for gaming.
Need storage too? Not a problem as it comes with a 512 GB hard drive.
Not sure why you would spend over twice the amount on an Apple MacBook Pro when this system beats it in every way possible.
4. Nest Thermostat 3rd Generation
The next cool gift will be the smartest (or warmest) thermostat you’ll ever own.
The Nest Thermostat actually learns the temperatures you like to keep your home at and programs itself in about a week.
It’ll also help you save on your energy costs as “Nest automatically turns itself down when nobody’s home.”
You can also turn up (or down) the temperature remotely with your smartphone so your home will be warm (or cool) when you get home.
5. Amazon Echo (2nd Generation)
I really wish I had waited for the 2nd generation Amazon Echo.
Not only is it cheaper than the original, but has a better speaker with Dolby processing.
It’s also better integrated to work with other smart devices in your home.
I also love the new colors and designs that come with the 2nd generation Echo.
6. Belkin BOOST UP Wireless Charging Pad
Designed to work with Apple for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, this Belkin Charger is pretty sweet.
Just set your device on top and the magic begins. There’s even a green light that comes on telling you that your device is being charged properly.
It’ll even work with lightweight phone cases which is a cool surprise.
7. Ember Temperature Control Mug
When it comes to cool gifts, the Ember Temperature Control Mug will be really hard to beat.
Ember keeps your coffee or tea at the same exact temperature from first to last swig.
No buttons or complicated instruction manual either. Just turn the dial on the mug to your desired temperature and you’re GOOD to go.
8. Insta360 Nano 360 Degree Camera
The Insta360 Camera is WAY cool and compatible with the iPhone 7, 7 plus, and iPhone 6/6S, 6 plus/6S plus, or can be used alone.
With a 3040 x 1520 resolution @ 30fps it takes your smartphone’s camera to a whole new level and allows you to shoot amazing 360 degree videos and photos.
Check out the Amazon product page as it does a great job breaking down exactly what they Insta360 does.
9. LIFX (A19) Wi-Fi Smart LED Light Bulb
The LIFX Wi-Fi Smart Bulb would make for a great gift idea for any gadget or tech lover.
It works seamlessly with Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant, no hub required as it has built in wi-fi.
Oh, and did I mention it has 16 million color combinations along with warm and cool whites?
It’s pretty much the coolest light bulb you’ll ever own.
10. Ring Video Doorbell 2
The Ring Video Doorbell 2 lets you see, hear and speak to anyone at your door from your smartphone, tablet or PC.
Amazingly, the video feed is in HD quality as well.
You’ll also get an instant alert when someone presses your doorbell or triggers built-in motion sensors within the device.
11. Samsung Gear Sport Smartwatch
Another cool gift for the guy in your life is the Samsung Gear Smartwatch as it’s a lot smarter than most humans.
Water resistant up to 50 meters, it also comes standard with “all-day fitness tracking, easy calorie entry and personal coaching.”
Compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones, you’ll also get updates and receive and reply to calls and texts with a turn of the smartwatch’s bezel.
Plus, it’s WAY cooler looking than the square Apple Watch and lets you download and listen to Spotify.
12. Ultimate Ears BOOM 2
This 360-degree Bluetooth speaker, known as Ultimate Ears BOOM 2, sends out terrific sound in every direction.
It’s also really cool looking and comes in 9 fashionable colors.
The rechargeable battery is also pretty legit with 15 hours of playback.
13. WyzeCam 1080p HD Wireless Smart Home Camera
The WyzeCam Camera is priced right and has a TON of cool features.
Not only is it 1080p full HD (with live stream direct to your smartphone), but it also has night vision from up to 30 feet away (even in total darkness).
It also comes with motion and sound detection with free rolling 14-day cloud storage.
Installation is a breeze with the magnetic base and adhesive metal plate that lets you mount your WyzeCam anywhere (no screws required).
14. Dremel Digilab 3D Printer
The Dremel 3D Printer is a technological marvel and is probably the coolest gift on this list.
It’s very easy to use for the novice and is ready to go right out of the box, no assembly required.
It also gets a very high safety rating from the 3rd party UL safety.
15. Personalized Beer Growler – 64 oz
What gift guide for guys would be complete without something beer related?
This Beer Growler from is really easy to fill, clean, carry, and most importantly pour.
Amazingly, it will actually keep drinks hot or cold for up to 20 hours with no “sweating”. Pretty cool, right?
It’s also made from “food grade” stainless steel and built to stand-up to many drops and fumbles.
16. Segway Ninebot ES4 Electric Kick Scooter
This Segway Electric Scooter is pretty bad-ass, not gonna lie.
It zips around at 19 mph and can go 28 miles on a single charge which is nuts.
You can fold it down and get it in any car and even has a LED display, cruise control, and Bluetooth capabilities.
Um…yes please, I’ll take 2.
17. BB-8 Hero Droid (Fully Integrated)
Standing at over 16 inches tall, this BB-8 Hero Droid comes to life with voice and sound responses, along with an intuitive motion sensor.
What makes it really cool are the authentic lights and sound effects, plus true-to-film animations that will blow away any Star Wars geek who receives it.
18. Wearhaus Arc Bluetooth Headphones
Most guys have never heard of the Wearhaus brand but that’s all about to change.
These Wearhaus Arc Bluetooth headphones are game changers. Not only do they sound great and come in at under $100, but they have some cool on-board technology as well.
They call it “Bluetooth 4.0 technology with aptX Codec” that allows users to wirelessly sync and share audio with other Wearhaus units.
So if you love to share music with friends, this “wireless sharing” technology is a must-have.
