#2 – GoPro HERO4 BLACK Starter Bundle – $520
Whether he’s vacationing, camping, water sports, hiking, biking, walking, or other outdoor fun, the problem is that it’s difficult to capture all the great activities he loves with just a smartphone or digital camera. Most are just not designed to take the abuse, weather, moisture, and other aspects inherent in action-adventure outdoors. Fortunately, they’ve designed a video camera you may have heard of that is designed specifically for capturing all those great outdoor memories that make having fun together outdoors so great. He will find a thousand ways to enjoy his new video camera that will easily be able to keep up with his busy lifestyle. The GoPro HERO4 Black is the latest iteration of this popular camcorder, and with all its features and accessories, he will find it to be an endless source of fun and enjoyment.
#3 – Apple iPad Air 2 – $620
The predictions are that the newly released Apple iPad Air 2 will be the hot gift for the holidays just like the iPad Air was last year and it’s easy to see why. A new faster A8X 64-bit processor with onboard motion co-processor, lighter and thinner construction, class-leading Retina display with 2048×1536 pixel resolution, better webcams, and the same long 10 hour battery life all make the iPad Air a highly desirable tablet from the company that rewrote the rules on tablets. If your guy is in the Apple ecosystem already and likes the larger form factor, this is the gift of the holidays for him.
#4 – NOCO Genius Boost GB30 12V UltraSafe Lithium Jump Starter – $130
Even tough guys can feel a little helpless when they get to their car only to find out that the battery is dead and the car won’t start. The obvious solution is to have a set of jumper cables stored someplace in the vehicle. The problem is on a cold rainy night after work, when he’s the last person left in the parking lot, those cables aren’t going to be very helpful. He may have AAA, but who knows how long they will take to show up to jump-start his car? The solution is to carry a portable battery jump starter in the vehicle that doesn’t require jumper cables, a 2nd vehicle, or a Good Samaritan to help. The standard models are heavy, bulky, take a lot of space in his vehicle, and are difficult to use under the hood. The answer is a new lithium-ion battery jump starter. These things are amazing. They are lightweight, compact, and are powerful enough to start even a 6.0L V8 engine over and over again without recharging. Plus, they come with a light for under the hood and the ability to charge portable electronic devices through a built-in USB port. This is the perfect gift for your guy, but you might want to consider getting one for all your vehicles.

Your guy has all the tools, but maybe you noticed he seems to spend most of his time going up and down stairs or back and forth between where he stores his tools and the project he’s working on.

What he needs is a portable tool box where he can keep all of his tools and yet take those tools to any project he’s working on.

#12 – Midland GXT1050VP4 36-Mile 50-Channel FRS/GMRS Two-Way Radio – $70
Remember using walkie-talkies when you were a kid? They were supposed to work for up to a mile, but you were lucky to hear someone in the next yard. They came with maybe 1 or 2 channels if you were lucky and they all had lots of static on them. Two-way radios have come a long way baby! The range has been extended to 36 miles, they have 50 channels to choose from, provide privacy codes to block other conversations, vibrate to alert you to a call, are weatherproof, have a whisper function to allow you to talk softly while being heard clearly on the other end, have hands-free operation with no external microphone required and so many more, we can’t list them all here.

#13 – Presto 03430 Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven – $43
I don’t like pizza…said no one ever!! Hey, it’s America’s favorite fast food, but ordering delivery a lot can really hit the wallet. Those frozen pizzas he buys at the store never seem to come out right in the oven and even the fresh pizza he makes himself is not ideal. Along comes the perfect pizza gift. Presto makes the Pizzazz Plus Rotating Pizza Oven that will allow him to cook the pizza crust and toppings at two different temperatures so that they both come out perfect every time. Plus, this pizza oven cooks pizza fast without using as much electricity as an oven. Think of all the money he will save by buying frozen or making his own pizza perfectly every time. Also, as a bonus, he can make his very own healthy pizzas that are hard to get from delivery or frozen. Give the perfect pizza oven to your pizza lover.
#14 – Bushnell H2O Waterproof/Fogproof Roof Prism Binocular – $77
He always seems to remember to take a camera with him because he has his smartphone, but one item he leaves behind would allow him to see more on his adventures to the outdoors. I’m talking about binoculars. He can zoom with a phone, but he will find out quickly that the zoom action on smartphones is horrible. Whether at a sporting event, on vacation, or just enjoying outdoor activities it’s inevitable that situations come up where he would love to be able to see what’s going on more closely. Not all binoculars are created equally. Get a set that are ruggedized to take hard knocks and are fog proof to give the best image in any environment. Get him binoculars and give him a closer look at the world he lives in.
