Gifts for the Person Who Has Everything: The 2017 Edition

Man Crates Damascus Chef Knife Making Kit

If you’re looking for something unusual, something that will really bring a smile to even the hardest to please gift recipient, then Man Crates are definitely worth your attention. I put together my own Damascus chef knife earlier this year, and I can’t tell you how proud I am every time I pull it out of the block and wield it.

I made this thing!

If you have a crafty friend — male or female — they will enjoy making their own, too.

Vi AI Personal Trainer

The Vi AI Personal Trainer is great for those who want more personal feedback than a regular fitness tracker could ever provide; she will cajole you, encourage you, and keep track of how you’ve done. I’m no runner, but she’s good for walks, too. Adding to “her” plus column, Vi makes a good commuting headset that looks and performs better than most; it’s like getting the ultimate convergent device.

The Vi AI Personal Trainer retails for $249, and it is available directly from the manufacturer; you can also find it at Amazon [affiliate link] for $179.99.

PicoBrew Pico

Using the Pico Brew Pico isn’t quite cheating because you are still an active participant in the brewing process, and it’s definitely creating homebrew. This isn’t anywhere near a Keurig for beer, but it’s almost as simple. Instead of having multiple brew pots and needing a lot of space to get the deed done, the Pico brews 1.5 gallons at a time of quality beer in a limited amount of space right on your countertop.

The PicoBrew Pico retails for $799, and it is available directly from PicoBrew and from other retailers including Amazon [affiliate link].
