(StatePoint) Holiday shopping is not always easy, especially when you place a premium on giving your loved one the perfect present.
But this year, don’t let shopping for the men in your life stress you out. By pinpointing their interests and shopping accordingly, you can scratch this task off your to-do list with ease.
Here are some great ideas to get you started:
Home Theater Buff
Enhance your home theater buff’s viewing experience by beefing up his projector with a newer model. For example, Casio has just introduced a new line of projectors that feature enhanced connectivity, improved audio, higher brightness levels and 3D capabilities. You’ll be helping him cut costs too, as the entire portfolio eliminates the use of mercury lamps, allowing consumers to extend the longevity of their projector. For more information, visit www.ShopCasio.com.
If your man is completely attached to his home theater system, there’s no reason to ignore this interest of his. Help him beef up his video collection by signing him up for a membership at www.filmmovement.com, which sends your recipient one award-winning movie each month to keep.
Modernize your reader’s habit with an e-reader like a Kindle Fire, Nook, or PRS-T2 from Sony. With one-touch downloading of books, this gift is especially appropriate for the reader with an insatiable appetite.
If you’re shopping for an old-fashioned kind of guy, you can still make his reading experience an easier one with a hands-free bookstand from Barnes and Noble or Levenger.
Whether you’re shopping for a serious musician or a hobbyist, your gift recipient will appreciate high-quality equipment. For example, the Privia digital piano line from Casio is introducing four new keyboards that have an authentic piano feel, dynamic grand piano sound, and all the benefits of portability. The PX-350 and PX-850 also provide the ability to record sound files directly to a USB thumb drive so rehearsals and performances can be easily captured and shared. He’ll be belting out seasonal tunes just in time for that New Year’s party. For more information, visit www.casiomusicgear.com.
If you’re on a budget, consider a gift that keeps on giving. For example, a pick punch, from www.uncommongoods.com, will allow him to personalize the guitar-playing experience with custom guitar picks made from expired credit cards and gym membership cards.
Help your outdoorsman streamline his backpack for all those upcoming hunting, fishing and camping trips. The Leatherman Freestyle Multitool from LL Bean, for example, is a knife/fly fishing tool hybrid that includes regular and needle nose pliers, and wire and hard wire cutters.
You can help him get his bearings with fewer gadgets. For instance, a new Casio Pro Trek watch, the PRW5100-1, is not only solar-powered and water resistant, but includes a compass, as well. Additionally, it reads altitude, barometric pressure and temperature -- making it great for his next outdoor adventure.
With some great ideas, you can make his holiday experience even merrier this season.
