Being a man isn’t easy. When men have a family, they accept that there are going to be restrictions on their daily lives for many years to come. They sacrifice their career and social life to help bring up their little bundles of joy. Don’t get me wrong, they find the experience rewarding and wouldn’t have it any other way.

We should all give our men love and respect at every opportunity. If you only surprise yours with a bottle of beer on his birthday, you must do better. They live in the modern world, so why not treat them to an unexpected high-tech gadget that will make their millennium?

Here are my top 5 high-tech gifts for your man.


Smartphones took the world by storm over the last decade, and the iPhone is one of the market leaders. They have the power and intelligence to do almost everything that a full scale computer can do. There are hundreds of thousands of apps available that will do astonishing things. The imaginations of the app builders seem boundless. When he takes a look at one of the app stores, he will find solutions to issues of which he was oblivious.

Tablet Computer

A tablet computer is a step up from the phones. They have large touchscreens that allow you to surf the internet and update your social media presence. New models hit the market regularly. Many of them cost less than a smartphone these days.


Gifting a laptop will fill the gap left by smartphones and tablets. You need a keyboard when writing long letters or emails. You can edit pictures with more ease and connect to a printer. They will always be in demand because people enjoy working on large machines. You can also give them a desk mat from somewhere like Kinetic Labs to let them protect the new laptop from dents and scratches.

Remote Control Toy

Make the kids jealous and buy car, plane, or remote control helicopter with camera. Who said that these gifts are only for children? If he has ever been curious about what the roof looks like, he could get a bird’s eye view. We are all nosey at heart. It is a useful way for him to improve hand-eye coordination too.


Not all people want to learn how to use the best and most complicated gadgets. Many enjoy reading books so you could buy him an e-reader instead. Though we take them for granted, they are sophisticated pieces of kit. Luckily they are simple to use so anyone can use them. He might need some help to download the books in the beginning, but he will soon get the hang of it and then there will be no stopping him.

There are many more items on the market for you to think about. These are just my top five. You might decide to buy a Bluetooth music player for him to use in the shower. It will play music that streams from her smartphone. Perhaps he will make good use of a video camera. The possibilities are endless thanks to the inventions in this modern world. I wonder what is yet to come.
