It’s the start of a new year, but not necessarily a new man. We all know that, no matter how many New Year’s resolutions they make, boys will be boys when it comes to certain things. Sports, video games and BBQs are just a few of those things. This year, we’re thinking it’s best to indulge the inner boy to get the most of the year ahead. Whether it’s indulging in games or gadgets, these boy’s toys and fun activities will start the year off right and make the men in your life happy all year long.
If you want big brownie points with your other half, brother, father or friend, video games are pure gold. If you mention EA games to a video gamer their eyes light up with pure happiness in expectation of the hours of fun ahead. Video games are great for keeping the boys occupied so you can have some quality time on the beach, with friends, or just on your own. FIFA 17 is undoubtedly one of their most in-demand games, so you can’t go wrong.
Sports and beach are the ultimate Aussie combination, so no man could resist beach games. Whether it’s a rugby ball or a beach cricket set, boys love to show off their skills and a little bit of a competitive edge. You can take your partner or dad back to his school days with a plastic cricket bat or teach your little cousins or children how to play a sport. Beach games are fun for all, or entertainment for some while others lie back on the beach with no distractions.
Men and gadgets are like chips and dip; they work in harmony together. Gadgets are a great way to start the year feeling technologically savvy and ready to tackle the newest tech trends. One of the best gadgets for a forward thinking male is a virtual reality headset. These attach to his smartphone and allow him to experience virtual reality in a simple, fun and affordable way. Since it’s bound to appear in the future, why not let him try it out and work out the kinks?
Pingpong? Think again, it’s beerpong. Boys and beer go hand in hand, so this is the perfect summer entertainment. It hones the hand-eye coordination and it’s a fun sociable game for the men in your life to enjoy. You may not want to fuel the mischief, but this table is fun for everyone. For those that are too young to drink, beerpong can be played with non-alcoholic beverages, or the table can be reverted to a traditional table tennis table. It’s a fun way to start the year that can continue to keep the boys as boys. Tables like the one below are suitable for all ages and will brighten up your garage!
Barbequeing has just upped it’s game. Boys and their BBQs will never be parted, so it’s best to embrace it and the benefits it can bring. There are lots of fun ways to make the men in your life feel like BBQ kings, but these branding irons are the best ones we’ve seen. This personal gift allows you to brand the meat or vegetarian food with names so that everyone knows whose steak is the burnt one. The irons can be funny captions as well, so the boys can outdo each other with the best sausage jokes. You’ll be reaping the delicious benefits all year.
