Valentine’s Day may seem like an overrated holiday, but if there’s a tech-something your guy has been eyeing, now may be the perfect time to surprise him with it. 

The tech world is booming, especially with much of the world going digital since the pandemic.

Why not surprise your man with one of these 5 Valentine’s Day gift ideas for outdoorsy guys who happen to love a bit of tech too? 

A Smartwatch 

If your man values his health and fitness, a smartwatch would be a super gift. 

Depending on his needs, you can go for something a little more basic—that tracks basic metrics like  steps, calories burned, daily exercise, and sleep—or something more advanced, which cater for specific sports, like golf, hiking, or boating. 

Garmin is a great way to go if you want a quality smartwatch. He’ll be able to keep track of his exercise, sleep patterns, and general health, check his texts on his wrist, and find his way home from anywhere with built-in GPS! 

A Drone

Which guy doesn’t want a remote-controlled camera plane? If your guy is into photography or videography, or enjoys an active social media presence, a drone could be a fantastic and fun tech/outdoorsy gift for him.

A drone can also be a useful and fun addition for outdoor activities like hiking (get amazing photos and get  an idea of what hazards may lie ahead on the trail), fishing (get a bird’s eye view of the lake!), and spying on the neighbors. Just kidding – check the laws in your area! 

An Outdoor Survival Kit

If your man is less techy but loves the outdoors, a survival kit is an exciting gift for him. These kinds of kits contain interesting bits of equipment like a compass, a knife or similar tools, a flashlight, a fire-starting kit, an emergency blanket, portable water filter, and a rope.

Depending on what kinds of outdoor adventures your guy is into, you can go simple or comprehensive. If you know exactly what he likes, you can even buy pieces separately and put one together for him! 

A Fish Finder or Sonar

There’s something romantic about a candlelit dinner in the comfort of your own home. But why not do something different, rugged, and exceedingly manly and take him on a fishing weekend instead of the traditional romantic gesture? 

A useful, practical gift for an avid fisherman is a sonar device or fish finder. He won’t spend hours fishing in a spot with no fish!

Whether he loves freshwater or saltwater fishing, this is a great way to get him a tech gift and take him on an outdoorsy excursion to try it out. 

A Virtual Reality Headset

If your outdoorsy man can’t get outdoors—whether the reason is bad weather, illness, or pandemic lockdown—a virtual reality headset could satisfy his techy side and give him a different kind of “outdoor” experience.

Whether he takes a virtual roller coaster ride or explores virtual worlds and all their outdoor beauty, this could be a great option for guys who love the outdoors but aren’t able to get there often (although we highly recommend getting to the real outdoors as often as possible!).

We recommend getting him something he can use as often as possible, but don’t leave it there! Get involved and get him extra excited about his gift. Get your hands dirty using some exciting outdoor tech together!
