Holiday Gift Guide: For Him

Shauna Hundeby/Demand Media

It's true that it's the thought that counts. Perhaps the special man in your life really does need a new sweater or another pair of socks—but you know that's not what he really wants. This holiday season, skip the woolen stuff and get him something that will knock his socks off.


For the Movie Buff

Watching TV is great, but not when the colors are so muddy that blacks may as well be grays, and the screen goes all blurry whenever something moves too quickly. That's why the man in your life will appreciate the UHD 4K HU7250 Series Curved Smart TV, with stunning ultra-high definition 4K resolution that allows him to watch movies, sports or TV shows at four times the resolution of full HD. With enhanced contrast ratio and Clear Motion Rate 960 technology, everything looks as good as it should. He'll also love the bevy of other features that make it a truly smart Smart TV, from personalized TV and movie recommendations to a Smart Hub that allows him to easily navigate through live TV, streaming content, games and more.


For the Music Lover

Whether he's watching TV or enjoying his favorite movie, a tiny pair of speakers does not make for a fun listening experience. What he needs is a home theater system worthy of the name, such as the H7730WM Home Theater System. The powerful 7.1 surround sound is automatically optimized to deliver the best possible sound experience; he can also make further adjustments to its settings based on his personal preference. The state-of-the-art Blu-ray™ player that comes with the system can also be used to access a variety of streaming services and to browse the Internet, so he needn't leave the comfort of his sofa or reach for his smartphone to set up an impromptu movie night.


For the Guy in Need of an Upgrade

Speaking of smartphones; if his is getting a bit long in the tooth, grab him a shiny new Galaxy S® 5. It includes all the features he has come to expect from a modern smartphone and more, such as a truly powerful camera with HDR mode, lightning-fast auto-focus and smooth selective focus, a crystal-clear high-definition screen that automatically adjusts to the light, and a sleek and stylish body highly resistant to dust and water.


For the Guy Who Loves to Go Big

If he is already in love with his smartphone, he'll enjoy the next step up even more. The Galaxy Tab® S is, essentially, a beefed up smartphone—minus the phone part, plus a host of other features. The tablet's multi-window mode means he'll be able to open multiple apps side by side; he can also connect his Galaxy S® 5 to the tablet through the SideSync system, allowing for seamless data transfer and making it possible for him to make and receive phone calls directly from the tablet.


For a Watch Guy

Back in the day, a good, high-quality watch was the traditional gift for a man, provided he didn't already own one. Well, the man in your life almost certainly doesn't own this one, yet. The Gear™ S can do much more than just keep time for him. He can make and answer calls, and check texts, emails and updates all from his wrist—without his phone nearby. It also serves as a music player and a fitness tracker, making this a perfectly practical gift he’ll be happy to receive.


For the Guy on the Go

If the man in your life is always on the move, he'll need a device that can keep up. Enter the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus, a sleek, lightweight laptop that is more than capable of running Windows and any program or app he might need. Its vivid LED display doubles as a touch screen. It also can be flipped open to a full 180 degrees, giving a very good impression of a tablet with a keyboard attached, only infinitely more powerful—and with an 11-hour battery life, it won't be running out of juice anytime soon.


For the Budding Photographer

Snapping photos with a smartphone is all well and good, but if your guy loves photography then he deserves a proper camera. The 20-megapixel NX30 Smart Camera boasts an articulated viewfinder that remains clear even in bright light and can also capture high-definition video without breaking a sweat. Once it's set up correctly, every photo will be automatically backed up to your man's computer via Wi-Fi, so he will never have to worry about running out of space mid-shoot.
