1. Automatic Mini Donut Factory
Even the man who has everything probably doesn’t have his own personal donut factory. This automated donut machine from Nostalgia Electrics is an offbeat gift that’s perfect for the guy with a serious sweet tooth.
Here’s how it works: An automatic dough dispenser creates perfectly shaped donuts, which are then fed onto a small conveyor that dips the donuts into hot oil. A flipping mechanism automatically flips the donuts for even cooking, and then they finished donuts are placed into a small bin. Donuts are one of those treats that are best served when they are still warm from the fryer, making this gift perfect for any guy who wants to enjoy sweet treats at their peak.

11. Zink hAppy+ Wireless Touchscreen Printer
Printers can be frustrating. The hAppy+ printer has a touchscreen interface that makes it a lot more user-friendly than the typical home printer. This printer is compatible with AirPrint enabled apps and Google Cloud Print apps. He can also insert SD cards to print a project. One awesome feature is the fact that this printer doesn’t use ink cartridges. Instead, the printer uses full color ZINK zRolls. One small downside is the size of the printer. However, despite it’s small size, the printer is capable of printing photos that assemble into print sizes from 4×6 inches to 16×20 inches. Another perk of the small size is the fact that you can take this printer anywhere.

19. Smartgolf Stiff
Need a golf gadget for the man who already has every conceivable golf gadget? This club is a newcomer to the marketplace, and it offers built in sensors that provide precise analysis for your golf swing. Unlike other “smart golfing” solutions that attach to an existing club (and might interfere with your perception of your swing), all of the sensors here are built into the club.
The club connects with your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi, and gives you detailed feedback on how to improve your golf game. The club is designed like a driver with a 35 inch shaft, making it ideal for indoor practice. This tool is designed to help him keep up his game during the off-season, when it is too cold to play outside.
If his game doesn’t require a stiff club, the regular Smartgolf club may be a superior option. It’s also a bit cheaper than the stiff model.
