8. Polk Audio AM4219-A Hinge Wireless Headphones
If he doesn’t already own a pair of wireless headphones, we highly recommend these Hinge headphones from Polk. I was lucky enough to get a free sample of these headphones and go hands-on with them for several month. There’s a lot to like here: they’re comfortable, offer surprisingly good sound quality over Bluetooth, and they boast a cool and compact hinged design. The headphones come with a handy pouch for carrying them around, and you can expect excellent battery life and easy Bluetooth pairing. The sound quality is excellent, and the audio experience feels well-balanced. If you’ve had bad experiences with wireless headphones in the past, it may be time to give the technology another try. Also included with the headphones is a single detachable cable with inline control. The cable enables you to use your headphones when Bluetooth isn’t available, or the headphone’s battery has no charge.
These headphones tend to go quickly around this time of year, so check out some cool alternatives in our guide to the best wireless Bluetooth headphones. You can also shop more audio solutions from Polk here.

18. Moshi Aerio Messenger Bag
Moshi is one of my favorite tech accessory companies. Their Urbana bag is featured in our list of the best laptop bags, and their MacBook gear also gets a shout out on our list of the best MacBook accessories. The folks at Moshi were nice enough to send me their latest bag, the Aerio, for some hands-on testing.
I own a few different Moshi bags already, but I think this one is my favorite. It’s got plenty of room for a laptop, tablet, and files. It’s designed to fit 15-inch laptops, but it can also store your camera in a pinch. The laptop compartment is padded, and there’s a water-repellent coating on the bag for better peace of mind. It’s also got a strap for attaching the bag to rolling luggage, so it’s a nice option for frequent flyers. The shoulder strap is very comfortable, and uses the company’s classic ViscoStrap technology to alleviate shoulder strain, just like the Moshi Urbana bag. I have to say that while I love the added storage capacity of the Aerio, I still find myself reaching for the slim-profile Urbana on days when I don’t need to schlep around the city with my entire tech arsenal.
The only downside is the price. At just under $150, this is a lot of money for a bag. If you need a cheaper alternative, try the Aerio Lite Vertical Messenger Bag, which makes a great carry-on. You can also browse more messenger bags here.
19. Pebble Time Round 14mm Smartwatch for Apple/Android Devices
Pebble used to be known for their square watch faces, but now the company is finally offering a new smartwatch with a more traditional rounded face. It’s available in two different colors, to suit your personal style. It is water-resistant, and charges super-fast. The company bills this device as the “world’s lightest and thinnest smart watch.” If someone on your gift list needs a new watch, this is a great option that will work with most major smartphones running iOS or Android. Want to see more smartwatch options? You can shop the whole Pebble smartwatch line here. If the smartwatch thing isn’t really for him, shop traditional men’s watches here.
Price: $199.99 (20 percent off MSRP)
20. Salvaged Walnut Slab Coffee Table
