Best Gadgets for Men in 2018

It seems like the simple answer to the age old question of “what gift to buy a man” doesn’t it? Answer: a gadget.

There’s always the assumption that men love gadgets. That probably isn’t far from the truth but not all gadgets are created equal.

There’s a difference between a novelty gadget and a useful gadget.

Novelty gadgets should be reserved as stocking filler gifts or for the man who truly does have everything.

For a gadget to make a great gift, it should be fun but functional. It should make life easier or at least less complicated or tasking.

And if he doesn’t wear it every day, it can be kept ticking over by simply sticking it into an automatic watch winder that someone thoughtfully bought for him.

Details of various watch winders can be found on our product review pages.
