One important manly characteristic is being constantly aware of your surroundings. With this in mind, here are some gifts to help your man know what’s going on.
Tired of having to look out a window on each side of the house to see what’s going on outside? Then this,
Set of surveillance cameras is what you need. With 8 cameras, 4 of them wireless, and it’s own computer to monitor and/or record them with, it’s worth almost every penny of the $7,000 it costs. Smaller and less expensive sets are available.
Then there’s that pesky problem of seeing at night. You either have to have flood lights all over your property, or get one of these,
night vision monoculars. I can’t believe something this useful only costs $200. This baby is on my Christmas as of now.
Of course, one has to keep an eye on things during the day as well,
and this pair of binoculars is just the thing to help with that task. They’re military spec, waterproof, shock resistant, and have a built in range finder. What more could you expect $125 to buy?
On the other hand, seeing isn’t everything. Sometimes it’s important to listen as well,
and the Detect Ear will let you do it better than most. This top of the line model, at $500, may be more than you need, so a less expensive unit may be appropriate.
It’s also important to know how fast things are moving, which is where your,
Bushnell Velocity Speed Gun comes in. At less than $80, it’s worth it just to know how fast cars are going by your house.
Temperature is also an important piece of information to have, and with this,
infrared thermometer, you don’t even have to touch something to know how hot/cold it is. At less than $80, this is going on my want list as well.
This next item,
which is a Mini Sound Meter for around $140, may be the best buy of the post. Seriously, with this gadget you have scientific proof of why it was necessary to punch out your neighbor for allowing his teenage brat to play overly loud music. If it only gets you off of one assault charge, it pays for itself.
Then there’s the weather, which everyone supposedly talks about, and with this,
home weather station, you’ll know exactly what you’re talking about. Sure, you can always get weather information off the TV or Internet, but not for your backyard! Why the hell do you care what the temperature is across town when, for $90 you can know exactly what the weather is right where you are. Besides that, it has a radio link to an atomic clock, and atomic stuff is very manly.
Sometimes it’s best to go with low tech solutions, such as this,
visual body scan device, which I hear is going to be used in airports starting next year. So, how can you possibly resist spending $3 for the added home security scanning every visitor for concealed items will bring?
