What do you buy for the man that has everything? It’s always a top question that makes it way into my head during for every holiday season. And steamrolling on that topic, what can I but my husband that’s both creative and unique? I scoured the internet this year and come up with plenty of ideas, so I’m passing on them on to you. Here are my top picks for this holiday season.
Make Him a Lord
Yep, this is really a thing. Highland Titles offers the coolest gift: purchase a small amount of land at Highland Nature Reserve, Scotland, and he’ll become an official Lord of Glencoe. Plot sizes start at one square foot and pricing begins at $43.00. A super cool perk: if he ever visits Scotland, he can actually visit his land.
This Is the Drone You’re Looking For
I asked Mr. Locke about drones, because he wants one, and the Mavic Drone Series is a really good choice. Yes, they’re pricey. But it is top of the line and worth the investment.
The one he likes is the DJI Mavic Pro 4k Quadcopter Aerial Drone 2 Battery Bundle Kit. Kit includes:
Mavic Pro + Extra Battery along with:
- Offers up to 4.3 miles (7km) of transmission range – Fly at up to 40mph (64kmh) or for as long as 27-minutes – True 4K, fully stabilized ensures smooth footage – Fly by Phone over Wi-Fi for even easier flight
- Gimbal-Stabilized 12MP / 4K Camera
- OcuSync Transmission Technology
- See description below for a list of included accessories
OLED for the Win
We’ve been looking into buying a new television for the bedroom and Mr. Locke insists on getting an OLED. What’s an OLED tv? It has a beautiful picture, built-in features, and it’s super thin. The LG Electronics 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart OLED TV is a really good choice and Amazon Prime Members get free shipping.
A Stadium Lover’s Dream
Living so close to Pittsburgh, we’ve been lucky to visit PNC Park on several occasions. Mr. Locke always comments on how beautiful the stadium is, not to mention how much fun catching a Pittsburgh Pirates’ baseball game is.
So, I looked up PNC Park on Amazon and found the baseball stadium blueprints. Each unframed 18’x24′ print is:
- Printed on museum-quality paper stock with a heavenly, crisp white finish and beautiful texture
- Hand-drawn artwork of the park including a plan view, signature elevation view, and architectural details unique to the park
Of course, there are plenty of additional stadium blueprints, too.
On the Twelfth Month of the Year My True Love Gave to Me… Beer?
My husband LOVES craft brew. If I’m being honest, we’ve traveled to several places this year to check out it’s craft brew scene (Central Ohio and Gettysburg were especially fun!), so a no-brainer gift for him is a US Microbrewed Beer Club Beer of the Month Club membership. Membership includes:
- Twelve, 12 oz. hand-crafted beers each month from two different lightly distributed U.S. Microbreweries. You’ll get four different beer styles, three of each style.
- Our Monthly Newsletter with detailed tasting notes, beer profiles, brewery histories, and suggested food pairings.
- FREE bartender’s bottle opener with all orders of 3 shipments or more.
No t up to your guy’s speed? There are six different beer clubs to choose from.
No More Dead Space
There’s been complaints in our home that our wifi/router is wanting. While the front of the house gets decent coverage, that back of the house, and the yard, is lacking. Enter Google WiFi system, a new type of router replacement. Her are the specs:
- Seamless Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home, helping eliminate dead zones and buffering
- Replaces your current router, and works your modem and internet service. It’s compatible with major internet service providers including Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon Fios

- A simple app gets you set up quickly and allows you to see what’s connected, prioritize devices, and pause the Wi-Fi on kids’ devices.Family controls allow you to pause the WiFi on kids’ devices
A Redemptive Gift
I know very little about gaming, only the fact that both my husband and teen daughter love it. When I asked what game was the hotness this season, there was a collective shout, “Red Dead Redemption II!”. Just in case you don’t know what it is, either:
Red Dead Redemption II is “an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.”
I Keg, uKeg
Remember the craft brew statement above? When we travel, it was really hard for him to bring home tapped craft beer, especially if we were going to be on the road for days. Enter uKeg. In a nutshell, it’s a way to keep beer pressurized while on the road. It also keeps the carbonization in beer longer at home. If that weren’t enough, its vacuum insulated 18/8 stainless steel keeps beer cold all day, too.
