7 Toys Every Adult Should Get for Christmas

HolidayGiftGuide revised

One of the best parts about the holidays is being able to put the most outrageous, strictly just-for-fun things on your wish list. When a man reaches a certain age, there are few things he really needs and can’t actually buy for himself. Remember those college days when a stock supply of toiletries would be par for the course from your mother? Well thankfully, those days are long gone (hopefully). Forget the Costco socks and jumbo-sized bottle of mouthwash, here are seven toys you need to ask for this Christmas!

1. Lexus RC F Remote Control Car

Christmas morning probably brings you back to your early years, the ones filled with rushing to the tree in the wee hours of the morning to unwrap your next favorite distraction. Bring that same excitement back and ask for the limited-edition Lexus RC F Remote Control Car, a 1/10 scale replica of the first ever Lexus RC F. The high-performance vehicle is built on an all-wheel drive Apex chassis and driven by the powerful Reedy 3300k V 540 brushless motor. $350, available exclusively at Barneys.

2. Coleman RoadTrip LXE Grill

The Coleman RoadTrip LXE Grill is a must-have when it comes to tailgating essentials. This portable propane grill delivers quality performance on the go, making you a definite invitee to the next game or on all future car camping trips.

3. The Coolest Cooler

Allowing you to take all the necessities along for the ride (and by necessities, we mean everything you need to get the party started), The Coolest Cooler is a game-changer when it comes to good times while adventuring. Features include a built-in blender, wireless Bluetooth speaker, picnic set, bottle opener, USB charger, and LED lid light. Bring it along on camping trips, to tailgating parties, on trips to the beach, or simply use it as an excuse to throw a party in your backyard. $499.

4. Sticky Sounds

New to the market, Sticky Sounds is bursting onto the (already slightly saturated) portable speaker scene with a fresh take on what makes a speaker truly geared toward an adventurous lifestyle. With 8 hours of battery life, this rugged sound machine even floats, meaning you can even perch it on your surfboard for those days when the ocean is your office. $68.95.

5. Skyrocket Drone

With the ability to capture your most adventurous moments more easily now than ever before, the drone has taken the selfie sensation to the next level. Before diving headfirst into the marketplace (did you know that some drones require the operator to have special licenses?), start with a not-so-expensive version of the toy. Having recently launched its new line of Sky Viper Drones, Skyrocket manufactures an HD Video Drone, featuring one-touch panoramic video capture and pre-programmed with a controlled-spin flight pattern to capture full 360-degree views at any altitude, and the Stunt Drone, featuring easy one-touch barrel rolls and flips in four different directions. $84.99 for the HD Video Drone and $49.99 for the Stunt Drone.

6. Pocket Shot

The Pocket Shot is the sling shot re-imagined. Crafted with a circular design and made to allow users to load and shoot various projectiles at two to three times the rate of a regular slingshot, this isn’t a toy for your son or nephew — this one’s got your name written all over it! Take it with you hunting, camping, or for some fun in the backyard, and better yet, ask for the Whisker Biscuit Cap, too, which will transform its purpose, allowing you to shoot arrows. Each product is $25.00.

7. Electra Ghostrider 3i

Electra’s Ghostrider 3i is fit for any automotive fanatic, with its stylish hot rod-inspired design, this ride features modified components like tricked-out forks, struts, fenders, and handlebars, so at least you won’t have to sacrifice both engine and style. If you’re an outdoorsy kind of guy, you probably have at least one bike in the garage. Whether it be pavement or mountain trails you’re after, your bike of choice probably isn’t the best for cruising around town, so you definitely need a set of wheels that will safely get you from one bar to the next, right? $1,049.99.
