The holidays are right around the corner, so it’s only natural for you to start thinking about the gifts you will be looking to buy for the special persons in your life. I’ve put together a list of five gifts I think are perfect for the men in your life, ranging from gamers to audiophiles.

Vinyl Age: A Guide to Record Collecting

Any true music fan knows that there is nothing quite as good as vinyl. Sure, you can access any song, artist, or album from your smartphone at a moment’s notice, but it’s simply not the same as analog.

Vinyl Age: A Guide to Record Collecting is written by Max Brzezinski of Carolina Soul Records, one of the world’s largest high-end record dealers. The book serves as the definitive guide to record collecting for seasoned veterans to complete amateurs, covering the growing trend of vinyl and more! It makes for a great gift for the music lover in your life.

Handcrafted iPhone case, Airpods case, and Slim Wallet from Tanon Goods

Tanon Goods has taken my aesthetic obsession to new levels with their premium leather iPhone, Airpods cases, and slim wallet. Each donning my initials in silver, printed on Oyster colored leather. Other personalization options include 6 leather color options, 3 custom fonts, and 4 custom foil colors.

These leather goods are definitely sitting high on my list for last-minute stocking stuffer gift ideas. If you plan on getting just one product, use my code ‘JOE-10‘ at checkout for 10% off. Otherwise, receive 20% off when you buy 2 products, and 30% off when you buy 3 products from Tanon Goods.

Blue Light Blocking Glasses

As someone who spends more time in front of a screen than I care to admit, I have made it my mission to protect my eyes. One of the ways I’ve done this is through blue light blockers from Zenni Eyewear. They’re great gaming glasses, too, because they are comfortable for long periods at a time.

The model I’m rocking is 503512 in grey, but can also be purchased in Green, Tortoiseshell, and Ivory Tortoiseshell. They feature Zenni’s Blokz lenses, specially designed to block out harmful UV and blue light, which are the main causes for digital eye straight and disrupted sleep. I can for sure attest to disrupted sleep from too much screen time. I’ve had major improvements to my sleep after wearing blue light glasses daily.

Phone Stand from tekneksavr

Admit it, you have neck pain from looking down at your phone too much. Heck, I’ll admit it. The Tekneksavr is here to save your poor little neck from all that strain.

This unique ergonomic aid attaches to your phone with an adjustable wand to prop against your torso when standing, or against your thigh when sitting. The wand easily rotates 360 degrees so you can view your device vertically or horizontally. Additionally, it can be used as a selfie stick or phone stand.


Gaming Headset from Turtle Beach

Looking for a multiplatform headset you can take from your office to your gaming room? I have just the thing.

The ROCCAT® Elo X Stereo gaming headset features a lightweight design that won’t wear you down during long gaming sessions. Its self-adjusting metal headband and superior memory form ear cushions make it so you get the perfect fit, while its detachable noise-canceling microphone ensures you have crystal-clear comms when teaming up with your friends. The Elo X is compatible with everything from your PC to the new Xbox Series X|S and PS5, etc. Best of all, when used with a new console, gamers will experience immersive surround sound (including 3D audio on PS5).
