Best gifts for men
Every year, companies release thousands of products that mind-boggled consumers are flooded with. Which designer bag to pick from a hundred? Which leather wallet will last me for years to come?

This Buzzle article gives you the best gifts for men for 2015.
Men may think that it's hard to pick out a gift for a woman, but it's just as hard the other way round. Tastes evolve over time and so does the need to own the latest that a brand has to offer. We're influenced by the comforts of everyday life and the luxuries that invariably plague us - we have the media to thank for that.

While it isn't entirely impossible to find the perfect gift, it is important to know what a man needs and will love at first sight. So peruse this compact list of the best gifts for men in 2015 and look for one that hits the right spot.

Swift Service

Worthy Alternatives: You could choose from Cuisinart Extreme Brew, Mr. Coffee SJX, Bonavita BV1900, Chemex Ottomatic, and Breville Grind Control.

Electronic Lust


DSLR Camera: Capturing photographic memories digitally may seem like an ordinary function in today's technologically advanced age. But it's out with the conventional digital camera and in with its professional twin. If a man loves to shoot everything from scenic views to the dinner on his plate, gift hm a DSLR camera.
Worthy Alternatives: You could go for Canon EOS 1200D, Canon EOS 100D (Canon EOS SL1) (small scale), Nikon D7200, Nikon D3300 for beginners and Nikon D810 for professionals.

Laptop: When work needs to be done pronto from anywhere and at any time, a sturdy, fast-as-lightening laptop is what you require. Whether on the move or in a remote location, a laptop can be a saving grace for those who need instant access. Opt for Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch for the best battery life, the 13-inch Windows laptop Dell XPS 13 Non-touch or the lightweight Lenovo LaVie Z HZ 550. Good options among mid-size laptops are Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon and Toshiba Satellite P50t.

Personal Gadgets: Some men prefer reading books digitally than flipping through an actual one; that's where an e-reader comes in. For the kind of experience that is nothing short of spectacular, encourage his love for e-reading.
Worthy Alternatives: Choose from Amazon Kindle Voyage, Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2015), Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight, and Kobo Aura HD.

Musically Inclined


Electric Guitar: A man who knows how to play an instrument - that too an electric guitar - is scalding hot. Upgrade his current instrument to a flashy, hardcore replacement or keep an ear out for the name of his dream electric guitar. For beginners, Epiphone Les Paul Standard, Fender Modern Player Telecaster, and Yamaha Pacifica PAC112V are some good choices. Gibson Les Paul LPJ, Scheter Damien Special, and Epiphone LP Special II Les Paul feature in the top electric guitar for the year.

Acoustic Guitars: Yamaha FG730S, Fender FA-100 Dreadnought, and Epiphone DR-100 are some options to consider. Visit the website GuitarCenter for a ton of additional alternatives, including vintage makes.

Violin: If his alter ego knows how to play the violin (excellently, that is), stroke it until it's sore by checking out these stringed beauties. When looking for violins of excellent quality and when price is not a constraint, Stentor 1500 4/4 or Stentor 1550 4/4 are some choices you could make. If you are on a budget, WINDSOR SVO44 4/4 and WINDSOR SVO34 3/4 could be your choices. Companies like Primavera, Mendini, and Cecilio are some other good options.
Violin Cases: American Case Continental, BAM Contoured, and BAM St. Germain Shaped are a few options to choose from.

Piano: A man whose fingers glide deftly over a piano's keyboard like warm butter over crisp toast, deserves an instrument that fuels his passion for music; these are your go-to options. As we know, Casio, Roland, and Yamaha are among the top few brands for this instrument. You may consider buying Yamaha DGX650, Casio PX150, Yamaha YDP162, or Roland F-120-WH Digital piano.

Discerning Taste


Bottle of Whiskey: While a lot of men don't really care which whiskey brand they ask for at the store, many others are far too particular to be as random and indifferent. For men who stack up on refined, aged whiskey with the kind of love that women show towards a pair of shoes, then a great bottle of top-notch amber must be selected. Give a man one of these, and he'll be forever grateful.
Worthy Alternatives: Consider getting Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique (single malt), Thomas H. Handy Sazerac (a very good American whiskey), Forty Creek Confederation Oak (a Canadian whiskey) or Redbreast 15.

Flask: What if a man needs a little pick-me-up drink when a bar's out of sight, or he's too far from home to pour himself one? That's where a handy flask comes in. Whether on a long road trip or camping in the woods, a flask is an easy accessory to carry around when a man needs a quick swig of the good stuff. Check out these nifty offerings: Secret Binocular Flask, Ernest Alexander Flask Set, Personalized Laser Engraved Real Leather Flask, or Culinary Concepts Hip Flask.

Sporty Hunk


Sneakers: Whether he's going out for a jog or gearing up for a day at the golf course, a pair of top-grade sneakers is a must-have. These are sure to keep his pedes snug and will have him spending more time on them too:

Worthy Alternatives: Choose from John Lobb Levah, Nike Air Huarache Black, Nike Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB, Adidas MCN Americana 84-Lab, Nike Air Max 1 "Patch", Air Jordan IV "Oreo", and Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost.

Outdoorsy Must-Haves: For a little something special for the outdoor fitness buff, check out these incredibly cool choices: Burton x Red Wing Rover Limited Snowboard Boots, Linus Almond X Summer Bike, FitBit Wireless Personal Trainer, Nike+ Fuelband, Mizuno JPX-825 Irons, or Hydroflask.

Traveling Sportsman: One must travel in comfort especially if it requires hours of waiting, plane-hopping, or bumpy road trips. These gifts will make him look forward to traveling: Go in for Osprey Nebula 34 Backpack, Soloman Agile 12 Set backpack, the Cenzo Duffle Vecchio Brown Italian Leather Weekender Travel Bag, or Cape Cod Leather World Traveler Duffle Bag, SethRoberts-Classic Expanded Pattern Rich Plaids Cashmere Feel Winter Scarf, Alpine Swiss Winter Scarf, or all mountain skis like Nordica NRGy 100 and Blizzard Bonafide.

Bad Boy, Good Boy


Leather Jacket: A style-conscious man must own at least one leather jacket that he can couple with any look. No wardrobe is complete without this rugged addition; look into selections like the Dolce & Gabbana Perforated Leather Jacket, Barbour Leather Jacket, Roots Leather Jacket (varsity-meets-biker-boy design), or Burberry Leather Jacket.
Leather Accessories: T. Anthony Classic Duffel, Emil Erwin Cordovan Trifold Wallet, Bric's Leather Duffel, Coach Crosby Leather Portfolio Envelope, Coach Leather Gloves, or Bill Amberg Full Grain Leather Messenger Bag.

Sunglasses: Nothing like a pair of sunglasses to keep away those pesky sunrays - don't compromise for a pair that costs nothing and doesn't protect his peepers. Check out these uber trendy sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviator Large Metal RB3025, Tom Ford John, Rag & Bone Lambretta, Persol Round Sunglasses, Barton Perreira Lawford, or Paul Smith Yorkshire.

Closet Staples: Give him a helping hand when it comes to polishing off a boardroom meeting look, or one that he can carry effortlessly even when he steps out for a drink with the boys. You can mix and match these options to create an ensemble of sorts: Esquivel Calf and Alligator Shoes, Alden Unlined Chukka Boots, Club Monaco Cardigan, Berlin Two-Button Moleskin Blazer in Light Grey, Pewter Woodgrain Cufflinks, Toms Red Plaid Men's Classics, Indochino Custom Made Suit, The Hill-Side Blanket Tie, John Varvatos Mock-Collar Zip Jacket, or Donald J Pliner Ember Suede Cap-Toe Oxford.

Two of a Kind


A man needs a good shoulder bag to lug around, and not some kind of backpack he still uses from his college days. Upgrade his style quotient by combining two essentials - a great shoulder bag and a pair of bright loafers. These pairings are quite the head turners; feel free to mix and match:
