Top 5 Christmas Gifts for Men that Won't Break the Bank

Updated on October 26, 2011

For the Traveling Man


I brought my husband one of these for his 40th birthday recently and now everyone he knows wants one. What could be better for those long flights? A memory foam pillow that provides optimum support and comfort but that has the added advantage of providing great stereo sound from his MP3 player, without disturbing other passengers I hasten to add. It also plugs into the Airline jack which will connect him to the airline's radio stations and in-flight movie audio. Quite ingenious and currently available through Amazon for an exceptionally low price. Grab yours today!

For the Workaholic


A fantastic gift for those men who, engrossed in their emailing, inevitably forget their coffee or tea until it's too cold to enjoy (I know I’m guilty of it too!). This slick device plugs into a USB port on a Mac or PC, providing a stylish coaster and matching cup that extends drinking pleasure by up to 30 mins. Sure to become a desktop essential. It also plugs into a 12V adaptor meaning that you man is able to heat his coffee or tea on the road. A great gift for the traveller or desk-a-holic alike!

For the Wine Lover


These remarkable glasses actually improve the nose and flavour of your wine without the need to decant or let it breathe in the bottle. Experiencing is believing - they really are amazing and make a memorable Christmas gift that he won’t want to part with.

For the Man Who has Everything


Those of us who religiously watch ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ each Christmas, know what it feels like to want to ‘Lasso the Moon’ for the ones we love. Now the man of your dreams can have his very own remote control moon and be the master of each of it’s phases, from Waning Crescent to Waxing Gibbous to New Moon. Perhaps the most imaginative gift I’ve come across in a long time, this present is sure to please the man who has everything.

For the Retro Man


A very different Christmas gift that Amazon tells us will "convert his tiny phone into a beefy, comfortable retro phone". Truly fun, this product works with most cell phones (not compatible with RAZR or Nokia models though) and will have everyone wanting to try it. The manufactuers claim that it serves a dual purpose too, as if used reguarly (if he dares!) it may reduce the potential health risks of direct cell phone usage. The sound quality is reported to be excellent too and the price certainly won’t break the bank.

      Love these ideas and had to LOL at the cup warmer as I sit here with a cold cup of coffee. Thank you.
