5. Apple iPhone

Whateva! But Apple iPhone is still the most favorite gadget for men. So if your boyfriend didn’t own one earlier then this is the perfect time to make him feel happy.

No one needs to know anything more for Apple iPhone and neither do you need to know where can you buy.

6. Yamaha Bodibeat

There is hardly anyone who doesn’t love music. And if that comes with a sensor that keeps track of your pulse and changes the music bits accordingly, then its a must have gadget. Why don’t you gift it to your man?

This MP3 player uses a pulse sensor to play songs that match your heart rate. Speed up, and it pulls superfast tracks, slow down, and it’ll give you something to chill out to. The machine can do this because it has a built-in accelerometer and pulse monitor, which are useful for more than just song management: The Bodibeat saves exercise logs monitoring your workout that you can upload to your computer. Yamaha first announced the Bodibeat over a year ago. As of now, it is finally slated to come out this fall.

7.  Sigma DP-1

Gift your boy friend or hubby a digital camera this Christmas. He is gonna love it because it is uinique. Digital Single Lens Reflex Cameras (DSLRs) are bulky. Digital point-and-shoots are portable, but their images can’t compare. Sigma changed that earlier this year by putting a really large image sensor—the size of an entry-level DSLR—into a small point-and-shoot. The reason that DSLRs have better image quality than point-and-shoots has little to do with megapixels and everything to do with sensor size
