Top 5 cool birthday gifts for men

Top cool birthday gifts

It’s hard being good all the time. It’s hard always getting it right, and sometimes you’re gonna find yourself stumped for a cool birthday gift. You’re going to hit a mental block on just what exactly you can buy to satisfy and delight. A dad, a brother, uncle, grandad, second cousin twice removed; the men with birthdays come in all shapes and sizes. It can be quite a minefield, all this being cool, but at Luckies we understand that, so if you think you’re in danger of buying your guy a Crocs voucher out of sheer exasperation and you’ve used up all the good ideas you thought you had, we’ve got 5 cool birthday gifts for men listed below to save your skin.

Explorer Bottle

Our Explorer Bottle is a stainless steel drinking bottle that does exactly what it says on the tin. Just to be clear, like we said its made of stainless steel, and it says it on the bottle which isn’t a tin. But look, you get the jist. It can be clipped to a bag or waistband for the more scatty birthday boy in your life, and he doesn’t need to be a Bear Grylls to benefit from its hardwearing exterior.

Camera Light

The Camera Light is a rechargeable ambient light presented as a vintage camera. Perfect for a bedside table, desk top, or corner of a feature shelf in a particularly cool living room.

Perry The Capitalist Pig

Perry The Capitalist Pig is a chalkboard money box, so if think your man is a little more difficult to please, maybe suggest he saves for his own gift. He can even keep track of his proximity to (and distance from) his goal by writing on Percy’s belly.

Adventure Wristband

The Adventure Wristband is a slap on PU leather wristband that houses an 8GB USB drive. Perfect for travellers, big important business men, or maybe just if your guy likes pretending he’s a spy – all equally cool reasons they might need portable storage.

If he’s a Summer baby, the coolest gift you can get him is one he can use at his (inevitable) BBQ birthday party. The BBQ stamp can be heated up in flame, and has 3 toppers so that he can brand different messages into the meat he’s cooking – “Black and Blue”, “Nearly Burnt”, and “Little Bit of Blood”. He’ll be the coolest host at the coolest party, and your job will be done.

3 unusually cool birthday gifts for any occasion

Cool birthday gifts

There are a lot of great things about being invited to a birthday party. Cake, music, watching other people’s drunk elderly relatives dance to Miley Cyrus, cold chicken nuggets, cake, booze, cake. Did we mention that we enjoy cake? Anyway, despite all this, the one downside to a birthday party, is that whatever cool gift idea you think you’ve had, has to be opened in front of at least 15 strangers. Don’t feel so cocky now, do you? Well don’t worry, we’ve got at least 3 ideas for unusually cool birthday gifts that will save you from public shaming amongst strangers.

Cool gadgets

If your guy is into his tech, our Hologram Viewer is a really cool gadget you can give as a birthday gift, and we can pretty much guarantee no one else will have thought of it. After downloading the free app, your giftee can create their own custom holograms on their phone and project them through the viewer. They can even make a birthday hologram and project it at the party. If you’re giving it as a birthday gift, they’ll also receive a personalised text message with instructions on how to download and play their own holograms.

Unusual gifts

Captain Greenfingers? Or maybe he loves space. Maybe it’s both, and you’ve hit the absolute jackpot with our Rocket Planter. The rocket shaped plant pot is a really great unusual gift. If you’re feeling particularly generous, you could also buy them a red plant to put in it, completing the jet fire effect.

Gifts for any occasion

Scratch Map Poster

Luckies are best known for our Scratch Map, which in itself is a pretty unusual and cool gift to give.

The Scratch Map comes in a number of varieties, including the Gourmet Scratch Map for your foodie buddy, the Adventure Map for your daring pal, or the Deluxe Edition if you really want to birthday treat them.
