The 10 Best Holiday Tech Gifts Ideas for Men

Updated on June 28, 2023

Updated Dec 2, 2022 - Gadgets for guys? Kinda stereotypical. But if you’re set on shopping for electronics, gadgets and fun tech, this gift list is guaranteed to please all the different men in your life this Christmas and Holiday season (or any other occasion for that matter).

Gift Ideas for the Man in your Life

While it would be predictable for us to say that electronics always make the best gifts for men, we all know that’s not true. Men are people too, and some people like poinsettia plants. Some people like socks. Some people like personalized water bottles. We digress. The point is, tastes are individual. If you’re set on the direction of tech though, we’re happy to help you narrow things down. 

First things first, stick with refurbished electronics. Yes, we’re kind of obliged to say that, but if you give it a real think, you’ll see it also makes a lot of sense. At Back Market, you can get the look and feel of premium tech without the hefty price tag. To put it more bluntly: you can basically save a ton of money and still come out looking like a holiday hero.

So let’s jump right in with the best tech gift ideas for men, each curated with your goals in mind.

1. Electric scooter: For the man that’s always on the move

Want to see a man jump around in excitement like he used to do when he opened presents as a kid? Say no more - an electric scooter will surely bring out his inner-child. This is perfect for the guy who chooses to drive when the destination is clearly walkable or for the constant mover who logs 15K+ steps a day.

2. The smartwatch: For the man who needs to track everything

Score brownie points with a fun gadget that he can use every day. Smartwatches have come a long way in just a decade and now we can track pretty much all aspects of our life right from our wrist. Just don’t blame us when he’s constantly bringing up his step count, sleep score, or resting heart rate.

3. The tablet: For the man who needs entertainment on-the-go

What better way to treat a guy who’s constantly traveling or for the little man in your life that needs a little distraction to give you some free time. Whatever the case may be, a Samsung tablet, Microsoft Surface or iPad will be a gift to keep him entertained for years.

4. The iPhone: For the ‘all things Apple’ Guy

If the man in your life can’t get enough of Apple products, there’s a good chance that his love for Apple all started with the iPhone. If that’s the case then he’ll be blown away with a gift that’s a model upgrade to his current iPhone. But we understand that these can be pretty high-priced gifts especially if you’re buying them new from the Apple Store. Luckily, you can find even the newest iPhone models discounted on Back Market, so be sure to check out our availability of iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 smartphones.

5. MacBook: For the man that’s Instagram boyfriend material

So your man is pretty tech savvy. That’s a good start. But if they’re going to help you edit all your pics and videos then they’ll need the right tools. Equip them with an affordable MacBook with a lot of horsepower, and baby, you’ve got yourself a workhorse. How’s that for a smart holiday gift?

6. Video projector: For the man that you want to eat popcorn with in the dark

Ready to plan your next date night with some screen time? You might want to consider gifting a projector, which is great for men that want to snuggle up to a movie or show, upgrade his man-cave or better yet, host the next big sports game.

7. Coffee Maker: For the man that needs his caffeine fix

Do you know a guy who’s been using the same basic coffee pot for years and drinks more than 2 cups per day? Look no further than to gift him a fancy coffee maker that will change his view on coffee from a habit to an indulgence.

8. Pressure Cooker: For the man who needs a little help in the kitchen

Are you looking for a gift for a guy who’s not so talented in the culinary department? Consider getting him a pressure cooker that might help take a little ‘pressure’ off of him the next time he hosts dinner.

Alternatively, if you’re gifting for a man who spends most of his time in the kitchen and watching the Food Network, then consider finding him a new kitchen appliance for him to experiment with.

9. Headphones: For the music-lover

What better gift to give a guy that can’t stop browsing Spotify for new music than an upgraded pair of headphones or earbuds? If he hasn’t gone wireless yet, this is the perfect opportunity to hook him up with some Apple Airpods or Beats by Dre for some of the best music quality on the market.

10. Camera: For men who like to experience life through a lens

Some guys can never replace the quality produced by a classic camera with the camera on their phones. Why not surprise them with a great camera gift without breaking the bank?
