All men love gadgets and cutting edge electronic devices.  It is just a fact to say that.  I’ve never met a guy who didn’t have a closet or garage full of them.

Ladies, the best gift for your man this holiday season is a cool gadget.  It really is the best way to how someone you care.   There are many gadgets and electronic devices out there that are are new or updated for 2010 that would make for some great gifts.  Check out our list below to get some ideas:

  • Apple iPad MC497LL/A Tablet (64GB, Wifi + 3G)
    The top gift on our list is the Apple iPad. How was this calculated?  Well, we surveyed 100 men and the iPad scored 30 votes in all.  Guys like the sleek style and stated that the Apps made it a must have device.  One guy said that it would finally be a way to replace the morning paper and the problems associated with carrying multiple devices on the subway.  The ipad is a one-stop multimedia bonanza! Reports are out today that some TJ Maxx and Marshalls locations have the 16GB version for $100 off.
  • The best way to experience the web, email, photos, and video. Hands down.

    These aren’t cheap gifts! I suppose gadgets rarely are, though.
    I think I’m going to get my brother a Kindle. I don’t have one (I have an iPad), but I think a Kindle is better suited to him. Do you know if you can ‘pre-load’ it with books? ). Do you know if that’s possible?
