Great gifts for a XXI century guyEvery year it is the same. As if the consternation of Christmas shopping was not bad enough, there is always the headache of choosing a gift for that one man who just cannot get enough of gadgets, but seems to have it all already. is here to solve that problem for Christmas 2017. Here is our list of the top 5 must-have geeky, gadgetry gifts for XXI century men.

The Oracle Touch by Sage by Heston Blumenthal

It is a well-known fact that nerds, geeks, and diverse gadget-fans in general need coffee to survive. The problem is, making the fantastic coffees we are so accustomed to receiving from professional baristas is almost impossible at home.

Enter the innovative chef known for using liquid nitrogen and reindeer milk to make scrambled ice cream. The Oracle Touch by Sage by Heston Blumenthal is a stylish machine that requires a little more than coffee beans, water, and milk to produce a range of barista-grade coffees with just a swipe and a tap. It even cleans itself, which is more than can be said for some of the men we know.

Fitbit Ionic

All that coffee means some men have an awful lot of caffeine to burn off. The Fitbit Ionic makes a perfect gift for the active geek, and offers them personalised health and fitness functions.

The fitness tracker that is more than a fitness tracker boasts a cutting-edge GPS, a SPO2 sensor, contactless payments, smart notifications, water resistance up to 50m, improved heart rate tracking, and even on-board music.

Nokia Steel HR

Want to see something funny? Give the gadget-loving guy in your life a Nokia Steel HR for Christmas, and watch him try figure out what it is!

The Nokia Steel HR is a smartwatch that not only tells the time accurately and never has to be wound up, it also tracks activity, monitors heart-rate, analyses user data via the Health Mate app, and offers health and wellness programmes, and smart notifications – and still manages to look like a sleek, stylish watch.

Apple iPhone X

The Apple iPhone X has quite the price tag, but put this in his Christmas stocking alongside that sugar mouse and tangerine, and the geek in your life will love you forever – or at least until the next iPhone is released.

The iPhone X (that’s 10 in Roman numerals) is proof that Apple is serious about luxury tech. The smartphone comes with Face ID, 5.8-inch Super Retina HD display, Qi wireless charging, telephoto and 12MP wide-angle camera, 4K video recording, and the ability to deliver 2 hours’ more battery life than the previous model. A sterling choice for the man who wants to be able to text his mates, play casino games in style on the go, surf the web, uncomplicate his life with 101 handy apps, and do much more at home or on the move.

The Xbox One X is the ultimate giftXbox One X

Gadgets and gaming are a match made in heaven, and the Xbox One X looks set to take that relationship to the next level – which might just happen to yours if you leave this under the tree for the man in your life.

We cannot call the design of the console itself particularly revolutionary, but, as with most things in life, it is what’s inside that matters. When it comes to the Xbox One X, what matters is its 12GB DDR5 RAM between CPU and GPU, an 8-core 2.3Ghz processor, and 6TFLOPS graphical horsepower. Dolby Atmos and UHD Blu-ray are supported, and the console has backward compatibility for a selection of more than 300 existing games.

Any one of these gifts is perfect for the XXI century gentleman, so now you’ve got your Christmas shopping done, you can sit back, relax and play a few of your favourite games!
