He is out of this world! He is adventurous and somewhat off his rocker (some say), perhaps a ticket to outer space is right up his aurora borealis. Virgin Galactic is taking reservations for humans to travel beyond the speed of light.
“We are at the vanguard of a new industry determined to pioneer twenty-first-century spacecraft, which will open space to everybody – and change the world for good.” — Sir Richard Branson (Founder of Virgin Galactic).

The Green Thumb
If your guy likes to get his hands down in the dirt and appreciates all the wonder he can sow, Home Grown Garden is the perfect gift for the man with the green thumb on your list. We recommend their Deluxe Bonsai Tree Kit that comes with four different seeds that turn into magnificent saplings: Sacred Fig, Japanese Privet, Rickspray Cotoneaster and the Acer Palmatum. Known for their beauty, the only thing you cannot admire about a Bonsai tree is to climb up them.

If the dude on your list is working from home, or perhaps a gamer pretending to work remotely, the X-HMT Heat and Massage Chair will have him on his feet as he jumps for joy over the multi-functions of this gift. This is not your regular, run-of-the-mill office chair. It’s the Game Of Thrones pinnacle to put his derrière. This chair not only provides ergonomic support but also provides heat and massage to increase blood flow, speedier muscle recovery and helps reduce stress. He’ll love it so much; he may even pull it up to the dining table.

Does he heat up the kitchen as well as other rooms in the home? Is his imitation of Gordon Ramsey spot on but also annoying (grating)? Well, this holiday here is the gift that will keep him speechless. Well less talkative while he is stirring, flipping and sautéing the perfect dinner for you. The Hexclad 13 Piece Cookware Set is a showstopper for every wannabe celebrity chef. It’s the true hybrid of stainless steel and non-stick pots, skillets and pans.
Does the dashing man on your list think he’s Bond? James Bond? If espionage is his favorite pastime, perhaps the Nooie Wireless Video Doorbell is the best tech gadget for the home, rental property, or even a mobile home or yacht. This handy camera lets you know who is coming on your property both friend and stranger. I tried the Nooie Doorbell on my apartment door and became an instant fan because sometimes delivery people slip by my doorman. I think your gent will also like this gift so much that he may even put on a tuxedo to answer the door.
I was a lifeguard and swim instructor back in the day. When it comes to bathing suits, I know what I’m talking about and have gone through enough Speedos and trunks to fill an Olympic swimming pool. If the man on your list has hidden gills behind his ears and worships the sun, surf, sand and saltwater, Marwida makes the best swim trunks from sea to shining sea. I mean this in the most literal sense. The swimwear is made from recycled plastics salvaged from our planet’s largest bodies of water. This gift is not only stylin’ but also a conscientious choice to help keep our oceans clean.
He will love this fantastic present that will not only make your guy look great on the greens or on the court, but will also protect his dome. It’s no secret that Carkella makes some of the finest hats in the business, especially for guys who golf, play tennis, sail, and bask in the sunshine regardless of the weather. There are plenty of styles to choose from but this month we’ve selected their Parker. This hat is one of the best sellers due to its signature ultra-lightweight fabric.
The Man Who Has Everything
We all know a guy who has all the toys, big and small. What could you possibly get him this year? We have the answer. This gift is easy, simple to achieve and settles all arguments about financial factors. A donation to his favorite charity.
