What to get your hubby this holiday season? Here are a few of my favorites which I'm sure will impress your man as well!

Anki Drive - When I was a kid I had a slot car race track. It was all fun and games until either the needle broke off the car, a piece of the track broke and wouldn't connect, or I’d go full throttle on a high bank and the car would fly off the track. Anki drive is an update slot car racing. Users are able to control the cars with their android or iOS device and either race against against a friend or an intelligent AI. You can also upgrade the cars with virtual upgrades to the engine and weapons, giving it a real life Mario Kart feel.


Amazon Prime - Like most shoppers, I love instant gratification. but I’m foregoing Black Friday this year in favor of Cyber Monday. Amazon Prime has been my go to when purchasing goods online for myself or as presents for others. In addition to 2 day free shipping on most products, there’s free streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime instant video, Prime music, and the Kindle owners’ library.


Moto 360 - I didn’t usually wear a watch until I got my LG G watch. I like gadgets and gizmos and I wanted to give Android wearables and smartwatches a try. Seeing an LG G watch on sale for $150 I took the plunge and I love it. I don’t have to dig my phone out of my pocket when I get a notification on my phone, I can see my upcoming appointments, see who’s calling, even get directions or look up things from my watch, so just like guys collect watches, I wouldn't mind picking up the round Moto 360.

VIZIO 54-Inch 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer and Surrounds- I love movies. My first job was at a movie theater. I have a lot of DVD and Blu rays. I have subscriptions to Netflix and Amazon Prime videos and upgraded to a 70” HDTV. My current problem is my receiver died on me, so no surround sound. The S5451w-C2 is 54 inches of awesomeness. Easy to set up, 5.1 surround sound with a wireless subwoofer and rear satellites so no hiding of wires. I can also connect wirelessly through bluetooth to listen to music.
Worx Aerocart - I’d love to get one of these for around the house. Part wheelbarrow, part hand truck, and part lift, I’d put this through it’s paces around the house, especially n the backyard. With run flat wheels, the capability of lifting 300 lbs, and fold out arms with platform, I can think of a lot of projects that the aerocart would be great with. Maybe I shouldn’t ask for this as this might add to my “honey do” list


Powerbeats2, Beats by Dre - If you ask my wife, I always have headphones on, even in bed. I listen to music, audiobooks and podcasts all the time, but the wires always get in the way. Sure I have a pair of Motorola buds but the neckband gets uncomfortable sometimes and lets face it, these Powerbeat2s just look awesome.

Coleman Roadtrip LXE Portable Grill - My new favorite cooking toy right now is my Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator. I have my backyard 4 burner grill to brown the meat and get that Malliard reaction that makes food yummy. I’d like to be able to grill on the go. have a picnic at the park or camping and not depend on charcoal.

Whether your hubby is a tech geek, has a green thumb, or is a great cook - these are all great gifts your man will appreciate! Happy holidays!
