While we’re extremely simple creatures, buying gifts for us men can be difficult – we know. Whether you’re shopping for a friend, family member, or yourself, it can be tough to find the right item, but we at MenStuff have rounded up some great items to consider when on the lookout for the perfect treat this season.
Araree Smart Wallet
Us guys don’t want to carry any unnecessary things when we’re out and about on the town, but we do need to take the essentials, and the Araree smart wallet will definitely help simplify that. Made from genuine cow leather, the Araree smart wallet sticks to your smartphone turn your mobile device into a wallet. It fits almost every iPhone, Samsung and other smartphone devices (the wallet is 6.3cm wide) and will help carry your credit cards, ID card and cash while making life a lot more convenient.
Everyone has that one politically-minded friend who loves the ins and outs of what South Africa’s politicians are up to, and Zapiro, South Africa’s beloved satire cartoonist, has created the perfect gift that very friend: the Zapiro collectable figurines. Each figurine is handcrafted and hand-painted to closely resemble Zapiro’s well-known cartoon caricatures, including Jacob Zuma, Julius Malema, and Nelson Mandela. The figurines stand 18 centimetres tall and are made of a dense polyresin – a sturdy stone-base material, that can be intricately moulded allowing a great level of detail, and have a similar appearance to porcelain and pottery.
Weber Compact Kettle Braai
For that friend who is yet to treat himself to a braai for his new pad, the Weber compact charcoal kettle braai is the perfect option when you’re short on storage space but still want the vibe of a Saturday afternoon cook-up. This model comes in two sizes at 47cm and 57cm. The rust- proof ash catcher and porcelain-enamel coating make this barbecue extremely durable and easy to clean.
Playstation 4 Pro console
Sony’s new PlayStation 4 Pro console will launch in November and is set to bring 4K and HDR gaming to living rooms across SA. The console will complement the standard PS4, rather than replace it. The name was picked to show that it is part of the current version of the console, but aimed at the higher-end gamers. It is not an entirely new architecture and thus not a new generation of PlayStation hardware. Among the hardware upgrades in the PS4 Pro are a 1TB hard drive, doubled GPU power, and technology adapted from AMD Polaris graphical architecture. These allow the PS4 Pro to reach resolutions “not thought possible on consoles” in 2016. The CPU clockspeed has also been boosted. The Pro will not have a 4K Blu-ray drive.
