UE Wonderboom 3 – Best Gift for Men Under $200

You’ve probably heard of the UE Boom, but this little guy packs a similar punch for under $200. The UE Wonderboom 3 has become our office speaker of choice thanks to a crisp room-filling sound with powerful bass. It’s remarkable what kind of audio you can get out of such a small, portable speaker.

Headline figures for this portable speaker are great too, with up to 14 hours of battery life, IP67 dust and water resistance, and drop-proof construction.

Priced at AU$149.95 we think this makes the perfect gift for men who want something they can use in the home office, on the job site, or anywhere they want to take the music with them. We’ve used this portable speaker camping, travelling, and adventuring across multiple countries. You just never know when you’re going to need it, but you’ll be thankful when you have it!

Sony WH1000-XM5 – Best Gift for Men Under $500

We get to try a tonne of great products here at Man of Many, but few do we recommend as often as the Sony WH1000-XM5 noise-cancelling headphones. Forget the Apple Airpods Max, these are the best consumer-grade noise-cancelling headphones on the market with near-silent noise cancellation, great audio quality, and the comfiest earcups in the game.

Maybe the most impressive feature of all is the battery life of up to 40 hours (30 hours with Bluetooth and noise-cancelling enabled). The perfect travel headphones, they beat the Bose QuietComfort 45 (24 hours) and Air Pods MAx (up to 20 hours) by a long shot. We brought them on a recent trip to the UK and didn’t have to charge them once between our home in Sydney and the hotel in London.

Often found priced under AU$500 the headphones are available in white, black, and a new midnight blue colour which is or pick of the bunch.

Price: from AU$548

Tissot PRX – Best Gift for Men Under $1000

The Tissot PRX is still one of the best watches you can buy for men under AU$1000 thanks to its vintage sports-meets-dress watch aesthetic and reliable quartz movement. We go hands-on with great watches every week here at Man of Many, but we often find ourselves throwing the Quartz PRX back on when we just want something stylish, simple, and timeless. It gets the approval of watch lovers everywhere, no matter where they sit on the brand spectrum.

If you’re feeling adventurous you can spend a bit more and get yourself an automatic Powermatic 80 PRX that’s priced at $1,100 AUD or the flashy Chronograph Automatic that’s priced at $2,900 AUD. Our pick of the bunch has to be the quartz though for its affordable price point.

Price: from AU$575

New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080v12 – Best Fitness Gift for Men

If New Balance could only make one running shoe, it would be the 1080. They tick all the boxes for fitness freaks, whether you’re talking about cushion, support, or breathability – it’s all top-notch.

Technically speaking, the Fresh Foam X midsole offers comfort and support while the Hypoknit upper is designed to provide stretch, support, and breathability in key areas. The brand has mapped the most important underfoot cushion areas and targeted flex zones for the ideal cushion vs. support trade-off.

We struggle to take these off, wearing them in a variety of environments from the gym to the morning commute they’re a do-everything running shoe that’s not too extreme.

Price: from AU$260

Apple Watch Ultra – Best Tech Gift

If you’re an Apple user looking for the best smartwatch on the market to gift the man in your life then the Watch Ultra is your bet. Smartwatches are a great gift idea for men that they’ll use every day to track their fitness, notifications, and general health.

We’d save time mentioning the features the Apple Watch Ultra doesn’t have, but some of our favourites include Stride Length, Ground Contact Time, Vertical Oscillation and Running Power. Not to mention all the new workout views, such as Segments, Splits and Elevation. Not an athlete? You’ll appreciate the long-lasting battery life of up to 36 hours.

Gozney Roccbox ‘Yellow’ Limited Edition | Image: Ben McKimm / Man of Many

Gozney Roccbox Portable Pizza Oven – Best Gift for a Foodie

Not a week goes by without cooking a pizza or two in our Gozney Roccbox. The ultimate gift for a foodie in your life, the Roccbox is one of the best pizza ovens on the market. A segment-defining product, it’ll cook you pizza, steak, chicken, wings, or any of the Gozney recipes found online without much of a learning curve.

In fact, the only foodie gift that even comes close is the much larger and more expensive Gozney Dome that’s better suited for large outdoor entertaining venues. After testing the Gozney Roccbox for ourselves, we found it to be a far more cost-effective option for couples and those without the space required to set up a full-size Dome. We highly recommend the Roccbox if you’re living in an apartment or what to take the Roccbox away with you for weekends and camping.

Watch us cook some Korean chicken wings in the Gozney Roccbox on our Instagram.

Best gifts for men starward nova

Starward Nova Whisky – Best Drinks Gift for Men

If you’re looking for great drinks gift ideas for men, it’s hard to look past whisky. And when we’re talking about Australian whisky, one name comes to mind these days, Starward. Affordable, great for all palates, and award-winning, it’s hard to look past this great dram.

In terms of the bottle we’d recommend, we flip-flop between the classic Two-Fold release and the Nova Single Malt we’ve included here. But we always keep an eye out for limited releases like the Ginger Beer Cask.

Starward Nova is great for all palates, with aromas of raisins, bananas, clove, toffee and nougat. Matured in red wine barrels and with an ABV of 43% it’s fairly sedate up front before settling on the palate with red berries, cinnamon and spices. You won’t believe it’s only aged 3 years.

Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum – Best Luxury Gift

It makes sense that our top luxury gift ideas for men would also be one of our favourite luxury fragrances for men. Le Labo Santal 33 is up there with the greatest fragrances ever created, and while expensive, it will have the man in your life smelling a million dollars with notes of cardamom, iris, violet, Australian sandalwood, cedarwood, papyrus, and musk.

To describe this scent in a sentence would be unfair, but as it warms on the skin we found it musky, slightly smoky, and addictive. In the words of Le Labo “Imagine sitting in solitude on the rugged, wide plains of the American West, firelight on your face, indigo-blue night skies.”

LEGO Ford Mustang – Best Unique Gift

Us men are a simple breed and when you’re looking for a unique gift for men, it’s hard to go past LEGO. Enter the LEGO Ford Mustang, combining two of our favourite things on earth, build it yourself brick art and 1960s American muscle. Your man can even customise his creation with different license plates, engine blocks, exhausts, and bumpers. Of course, that’s assuming he can actually build the 1471 piece creation.

Regardless of his engineering prowess, you can bask in enjoyment as he sits there frustrated, swearing his head off at an instruction manual.

Frank Green Ceramic Reusable Cup – Best Sustainable Gift

We’re all trying to do our little bit for the planet these days, even if it’s something small like swapping from coffee cups to reusable bottles. Enter Frank Green and their reusable coffee cups.

After trialling a number of these cups, this is our favourite thanks to its no-spill lid, triple-wall vacuum insulated construction that keeps your drink hot (or cold), colour, and choice of sizes. We opted for the standard 10oz / 295ml cup when we got ours. Best of all, it fits standard car cupholders.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 – Best Photography Gift for Men

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 film camera is the photography gift you give the man who has it all already. There’s a good chance you’re not going to fork out $1,300 for a new DJI Drone, so we recommend playing it safe, fun, and a little vintage with a film camera.

If the man in your life is anything like us, it’s fun to whip out the film camera every now and then when you want to change things up from the perfect digital images you’re used to capturing. We’ve been using this model for the better half of 12 months and we love the auto features like exposure and variable shutter speed to cover any mistakes you might make with lighting (film isn’t cheap).

Well, maybe a set of studio reference speakers… but we’re being realistic on price here and at $708 the Pro-Ject Primary E Bluetooth Turntable is sleek, easy to use, sounds great, and is made to the standards of the more expensive turntables available from this leading brand.

To seal the deal, the Pro-Ject Primary E even comes with its own counterweight and anti-skating weight pre-set, so all you have to do is plug it in and let Skynard rip. It couldn’t be easier.

BioLite AlpenGlow Lantern – Best Camping Gift

After testing the majority of camping lanterns on the market ourselves, we finally settled on purchasing the BioLite AlpenGlow 500 rechargeable and we haven’t looked back. It’s far from the cheapest option on the market, but we’ve always subscribed to the buy it right, buy it once philosophy.

Things to Consider for Gifts for Men

When it comes to gift ideas for men, simply wrapping a bow on a new fragrance isn’t quite enough. In fact, if you want to get the special occasion right, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • Price: Perhaps the most obvious consideration, the price will inevitably play a factor in your purchasing decision. While you may want to splash out for a significant birthday or gifting event, more often than not, you’ll be aiming around the $50-$100 mark. To get the most out of your alcohol gift idea, don’t be afraid to shop around for the best price.
  • Interests: Before you pull the trigger on a cheap gift, it’s important that you consider the giftee’s interests. While some ideas might be frugal, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good.

Alternatives to Gifts for Men

If you are looking for something a little more specific, we’ve got you covered. Outside of just camping gift ideas, we’ve collated our favourite releases across a number of different categories. So, no matter what that special someone in your life is keen on, you’ll find it here.
