Living modern means dressing modern and styling your house in a similar fashion. To find some great gifts for any gentlemen you know, shop for modern Christmas gifts that will make home décor fun again. You’ll find wall art reminiscent of Banksy pieces, cool lighting accessories that will bring some modern infusion into any space, and awesome metal sculptures you’ve likely never seen anywhere else.
We’re in the 21st century folks, so we should start acting like it. Take advantage of the amazing virtual reality products—yes, they really do exist! For an inexpensive option, try some Merge VR goggles—perfect for a range of ages, from the littlest ones in the family to the older kids at heart. They’re under a hundred dollars and their capabilities are pretty dang cool. The goggles use your smartphone to create a virtual reality in which you can explore, travel, play, and learn. The company has not begun shipping yet, but if you preorder you can get them delivered before Christmas, meaning you can wrap them up and place them under the tree! This is a gift no one will expect but everyone will adore. Prepare for hours of experimentation after this one has been unwrapped Christmas morning.
Keep Up with the Times
While they’re still picking up steam in the mainstream market, Apple Watches will surely become the next iPhone—the thing everyone has and everybody wants. They’re pretty pricy, like most Apple products, but the price is worth the capabilities. These handy gadgets can be used in conjunction with your iPhone, and provide all the benefits of a phone on your wrist. From fitness tracking to love buzzes that will let your far away sweetheart know you’re thinking of them, this is an awesome present for anyone on your list.
If you worry about leaving the kids at home with a babysitter or have a pooch who magically gets out of the house every day, your spouse might be glad to receive a modern surveillance system for your home. With a setup like the Nest Cam, you can watch all the goings on in your home from the office, or even on your phone if you’re out of town on vacation. This peace of mind could do wonders for any busy family, and many of your family members would surely be appreciative of the extra security. You can even talk through the camera from afar—alert your family that the dog ran out, or yell at an intruder to scare them away. I wouldn’t be surprised if this became the norm in future homes.
If you have an outdoorsy family member or friend that loves taking their cool GoPro with them on every adventure, make sure they have all the awesome accessories to capture the best moments in the best possible way.

You can peruse them all at GoPro.com and make sure your friend or family member cements their amazing memories so you can watch later on.
