1. Yosuda Indoor Cycling Bike
Peloton is a well-known at-home gym brand but the 2,000 dollar-plus initial cost of their entry-level bike makes it is a luxury that might deter even the most hardcore spinner you know from spending. Instead, consider giving him the most in-demand indoor exercise bike we’ve covered since the pandemic started: the Yosuda indoor cycling bike. It features a four-way padded seat cover for comfort and an adjustable non-Tslip handlebar, which helps if his palms get sweaty while working out. Although it’s not equipped with Bluetooth speakers, the Yosuda spinning bike does include an LCD monitor that displays your workout details — distance, speed, calories burned, time and odometer — plus a dedicated iPad holder to stream workout videos or binge-watch Hulu.

2. Üllo Wine purifier
Are you unsure what to get your friend who considers himself a wine aficionado? Skip the generic bottle of red (or white if he prefers) from your local liquor store and meet Üllo’s wine purifier instead. This device helps remove sulfites and sediments for better tasting wine for the home wine drinker who may be allergic or sensitive to those byproducts. The two-in-one gadget is an aerator, too. Using it is also simple — the purifier fits atop his wine glass and decanter and he pours his wine of choice through it to enjoy the benefits of a combination aerator and purifier. The brand recently released an elevated edition that also cools your wine: Chill.

3. Nespresso VertuoPlus
If your favorite guy, whether romantic or familial, would never forgo coffee as a new year’s resolution, then make his day by giving him the Nespresso VertuoPlus coffee maker. Editorial director Gideon Grudo enjoys his VertuoPlus (with an included frother) for “its consistent simplicity and potential complexity: Your coffee is entirely in your hands and won’t require too much work if you don’t want it to.” Beyond the 14 intensity options across Nespresso’s VertuoPlus capsules, it gets going with just a push of a button. The kitchen gadget is also automatic, meaning it scans the barcode on the Nespresso capsule and figures out the exact amount of water, foam or air necessary to whip up a delicious cup of coffee.

4. Wusthof Classic Chef’s Knife
We previously dubbed this kitchen staple as the best all-around chef’s knife, according to cooking pros like Jakob Esko, executive chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay. “This is the first knife you need to purchase. A good chef’s knife is the basic knife and will last a lifetime,” he said. “The heel of the blade is thick and will not get damaged by heavy duty usage. This was my first knife and I still use it today.” Cookbook author Jonathan Bender is also a fan of the German-made knife, which sports an eight-inch long carbon stainless steel blade. He utilizes the knife to whip up various dishes and treats, from splitting the bone in chicken breast to chopping up chocolate chips for homemade cookies.

Truff doesn’t just make hot sauce — they recently launched pasta sauce in the winter, which was featured in our weekly New & Notable column.

6. Honest Amish Classic Beard Oil
If he unofficially extended his commitment to No Shave November into the new year, then he should use beard oil to help moisturize his facial hair and skin. Steve Vilot, owner of Sim’s Barber Shops in Tennessee, previously explained to us in our guide to men’s grooming, that dudes should “always make sure to oil your beard from root to end.” Honest Amish’s beard oil is an Amazon bestseller made from eight hydrating oils like avocado, sweet almond, argan and jojoba to help soften his beard and the skin underneath. Another win, that happens to be aligned with President Biden’s Buy American Act, is that the brand’s products are handmade in the states.

7. Saxx Men’s Swim Shorts
Michael Fisher, stylist to a bevvy of superheroes, like Hugh Jackman and Sebastian Stan, recommends guys sport mid-length swim shorts for the most flattering fit. Fisher’s also a fan of options that feature an elastic waistband and drawstring to keep your shorts up. These stylish swim trunks are made from odor- and fade-resistant material, so they can last through competitive beach volleyball games and plenty of machine washes. Arguably the biggest win with these shorts is the brand’s signature BallPark Pouch, a breathable mesh netting that prevents chafing and offers support.

And Amazon’s Alexa smart assistant can also adjust his smart home devices, including thermostats, smart bulbs and more nifty at-home tech.
