Top 10 Healthy Holiday Gifts for Men
With cooler weather, have you thought about giving the men on your list a comfortable, outdoor jacket? REI has many to choose from, and we like the popular Raven style. With a rugged cotton, canvas exterior, the jacket has a soft interior and articulated sleeves for ultimate comfort and style. It’s an all-purpose jacket that goes from a night at the movies to a walk in the woods and more.
Give the guys on your holiday gift-list a break from violent and loud video games. With Lumosity, they get a personal trainer guiding them through over 40 online games designed by scientists to improve cognitive skills. You can play the games any time and track your progress.
Whether the men on your list like to fish, camp, hike, or just spend time in the wilderness, they’ll need a good knife set in order to prepare meals. Camp Chef’s nine-piece knife set will make food-preparation a breeze with Stainless-steel blades and ergonomic handles. And it comes with a cutting board and bag to keep everything clean and organized.
Is there a guy on your gift-list who gets take-out or microwaves mac ‘n cheese almost every night? Treat him to Mantry, a food-of-the-month club for men that provides American artisan food and “what to do with it.” Each month, he’ll receive six, full-size food products with stories and recipes packed in a wooden crate. It’s simple and fun. And who knows? He just might start cooking “real” food!
For the avid outdoorsman on your holiday gift-list, check out La Cross® Technology’s Wireless Color Weather Forecast Station. With a quick glance at the screen, he’ll know the forecast, temperature, humidity, heat index, and dew point. And if a long nap is on the agenda, the snooze alarm will help him wake up in time for dinner!
If your active man needs a simple way to carry his phone, I.D. and key while working out, check out the Armpocket Racer™ ultra-thin sport armband. It’s water-and-slip resistant and offers durable protection and comfort so he can focus on training.
Spice things up in the kitchen this holiday season with the Food52 DIY Deluxe Hot Sauce Kit! Complete with recipes and six bottles of hot sauce (including: Sweet Heat, Louisiana Style, Caribbean, Brazilian, Garlic, and Garden), your guy can experiment and share his spicy, hot creations!

The speakers provide up to 10 hours of run time and work with any, Bluetooth-enabled helmet that has an ear-piece sleeve.
