R2D2 Coffee Press - a great gift idea

ThinkGeek do have a range of cool R2D2 gift ideas to choose from so if your man doesn't like coffee you could get him a tea pot, lidded mug or desk lamp just to name a few.

Back to the coffee press, R2D2 will hold 4 cups of freshly brewed coffee for you aka 32oz, which is sure to be enough to help you face the day ahead!

Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker

Whether the man you're buying for is into fitness, or just needs to feel inspired to do a little exercise the new Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker will certainly help to encourage him to increase his activity.

Creed, Aventus by Creed Cologne

Cologne is a great choice as a gift idea and Creed is one of the more popular ones for this year so keep him up to date in the cologne department with a bottle of this -

Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge

This was designed with whiskey drinkers in mind, but to be honest I think it would be just as good for bourbon or tequila drinkers too.   Now I haven't actually trialed this myself, but the idea behind it is really good.

The Corkcicle whiskey wedge makes a great gift idea for people who enjoy not just whiskey, but any spirits
Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge

Now this includes a double old fashioned glass and a silicone ice form and basically it means you make an ice wedge to keep your drink cool. Now purists will ask how on earth this stops your whiskey from being watered down like ice cubes and it's basically about science.

As the guys on the Big Bang Theory would tell you it takes longer for a large wedge of ice to melt than it would an ice cube. Of course it does melt so you may find the bottom part of your drink is a little watered down, but it's not nearly as bad as using ice cubes and it looks really, really cool!

Converse Chuck Taylor's All Stars

Now what can I say about this hi top sneakers that you don't already know?   They're hip now, but also have that retro feel so that if you're buying them for a dad or uncle then they also have a nostalgic feel about them.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars Hi Top Sneakers make a great gift idea.
Converse Chuck Taylor's All Stars

Now this converse sneakers are a great gift idea, but if you're not sure they're quite right for the man you're shopping for you can find a selection of hi-top sneakers in a range of designs from patriotic to funny, even a cool zombie inspired walking dad pair on Zazzle.

Beats Solo 2 Wireless On-Ear Headphones

The Solo2 Wireless headphone's durable housing and compact, foldable design make it the ultimate on-the-go accessory for the man on your list.   They come in a range of colors, but if you're unsure I don't think you can go past the space grey color featured here -

Digital Tape Measure

What to get the handyman in your life?   What about a digital tape measure?   It's so much better than the old fashioned ones!

Bacon Flavored Coffee

Everything's better with bacon which is why bacon flavored coffee is a great gift idea......

Bacon flavored coffee is a great gift idea for any man because everything's better with bacon!

Bath Robe

A bath robe is a great gift idea especially in winter where you want something warm and snuggly to slip into.

There are lots of different types of bath robe available depending on who you're buying for from Super Hero Bath Robes to other geek inspired robes and many more.   I've selected a very comfortable looking hooded robe for you to look at today -

Meat Socks

Socks as a rule can be a pretty boring, if practical, gift for a guy, but these 'meat socks' are anything but boring!

You have a choice of bacon socks (everything's better with bacon!) or cheeseburger socks (who doesn't love a good cheeseburger?)   The decision is really hard to make, but of course no one's saying your can't buy him both!

Meat Socks make a great gift idea for the man in your life

BBQ Toolbox

This is a cool gift idea, it looks like a regular toolbox, but when you feel like some steak and sausages you have your own BBQ on hand.  

I know a couple of men that I'm shopping for who would love to have this in the trunk of their car.

The BBQ Toolbox is a cool gift idea for that man that has everything.

BB-8 Droid

This Star Wars inspired gift idea is a must have for any fan - your very own BB-8 App-enabled droid which you can control with your smartphone or tablet.    I can see hours of fun with this little fella.

I have to say that this has been available for a while now and is proving to be very popular - whether people are buying them as  a gift or to keep for themselves is hard to know though!

The BB-8 Droid makes a really great gift idea for any Star Wars fan, look how it's interacting with the fish in the fish bowl - so cute!

This is a gift that is perfect for numerous Star Wars fans and not just the men on your shopping list, I can see a lot of women enjoying this droid as well.

Funny Mug

A mug is a great gift idea as I've said in the past, and I personally like funny mugs like this one from Zazzle -

If you don't like this particular mug I've got a few different selections of mugs for you to choose from including funny mugs, geek mugs, the Muppets mugs, Superman mugs and more.


The the beer enthusiasts out there, here's a game that they should enjoy....

Available in polarized and non-polarized these sunglasses are an absolute classic.

The Ray Ban 'New Wayfarer' Sunglasses are a great gift idea for the man who likes to be noticed.

Every Person in New York by Jason Polan

This coffee table book is a 408 page paperback book that is bursting with sketches of over 30,000 people.

The sketches are very simplistic, but the book itself is a great conversation starter.

Batman Desktop Bat Signal

Any man who's a fan of the Dark Knight would love their very own Bat Signal (hell even a few women I know would love this including a certain teenage girl I have on my Christmas list!)

A desk top Bat Signal, a perfect gift for any Batman fan
Desktop Bat Signal

This mini Bat Signal runs off of 1 CR1632 battery which is included, also when you purchase this awesome Batman gift you also get a mini book packed full of info any fan would love.

TV Remote Control Bottle Opener

Now I don't know about you, but I've yet to find a man who doesn't hold the remote control in a death defying grip, it's as though they are hard wired not to let anyone else touch their remote control ever!

When I saw that you could get a remote control that also doubled up as a bottle opener I knew that at least one person on my list was going to want one!

Game of Thrones Longclaw Umbrella

Now it's always nice to get a practical gift for someone and what can be more practical than an umbrella?   However the universal black umbrella designed for millions of business men to use seems a little boring so why not spice things up with.....

Licensed Game of Thrones Longclaw umbrella - a perfect gift for any GOT fan
GOT Longclaw Umbrella

With a handle carved like the hilt of the legendary Valyrian steel sword that Jon Snow welds - Longclaw - you'll be praying for rain to have an excuse to use this umbrella!

Thug Kitchen Party Grub

This recipe book comes with a side of well as over 100 recipes.   A great cookbook for the man on your Christmas list.

Thug Kitchen Party Grub a cool cookbook gift idea

Donut Warming Coffee Mug

If you love a donut with your morning coffee (or any time of the day coffee) then you'll love this idea - a donut warming coffee mug.

What man wouldn't appreciate this as a gift (and why not order two and keep one for yourself at the same time).   I know I've said before that mugs make the best gifts, but donut warming mugs ..... be still my beating heart!
A donut warming coffee mug is a great gift idea that will ensure a very happy morning for the recipient!

Star Trek USS Enterprise Remote Control Drone

If you're buying for a Star Trek fan then this USS Enterprise remote control drone looks like a whole lot of fun.  Not only can drones be fun, this one has 10 authentic sounds and lights that any Trekkie will appreciate.

USB Cufflinks

I think the reason why most of the men I know enjoy Bond movies or Mission Impossible is because they have a secret yearning to be a spy and to have some of the 'spy toys' from these movies.

If you give them a pair of these USB cufflinks you're also giving them the type of secret agent 'toy' that Q could easily give 007 and I think that will be a big hit.

USB cufflinks make a great gift idea for the man in your life

The Beer Briefcase

The beer briefcase is one of my favorite (this year anyway) of the selection of beer lovers gifts available this year.  If the man you're buying for loves to drink a few beers then this might just be the perfect gift for him (as long as you fill it with his favorite beer as well).

Zombie Cajun Hot Sauce Gift Set
