For several years now, I’ve worked on a ‘Gift Guide for Men‘ with our sponsor, BabbleBoxx. This year’s box is one of my favorites. BabbleBoxx puts practical gifts and unique gifts together in one ‘Boxx’ to make an awesome variety of gifts.
The latest BabbleBoxx gifts are perfect for everyone this year.
Here’s what you’ll find in this Gift Guide for Men 2020:
Vinyl Age Book from Black Dog & Leventhal
This book, Vinyl Age: A Guide To Record Collective Now, is the perfect gift for any music fan. Whether he’s just beginning his vinyl collecting journey, or if he’s an expert collector who has been collecting for years, he’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of this book. It is filled with graphs, images & salient tips.
I was excited to see this book because I’ve always been interested in music. Becky’s parents had a vinyl record player for as long as I’ve known them. They recently gave it to our nephew, and we put a record on every time we visit – they have a huge collection of records & it’s a great way to introduce the kids to these songs.
We’ve noticed a growing trend for vinyl- a renaissance with major retailers & listeners worldwide as people buy these collectibles to remember the ‘good old days.’ Even though everyone has easy access to digital music, there’s just something about vinyl records that draw us back.
If you’re a fan of music, too, you’re going to want to order Vinyl Age: A Guide to Record Collecting Now by Max Brzezinski and Carolina Soul. This book is the most definitive guide to record collecting. Everyone from the crate-diggers to the high-end bidders will be looking for this one.
Phone Case, Air Pods Case & Slim Wallet from Tanon Goods
We knew that the custom goods from Tanon Goods were going to be the best choice for our three boys. The premium leather means they are going to hold up year after year.
We ordered the functional, yet stylish PHONE CASE for Jack. The smooth look is just what he’ll like, plus it fits his phone snugly, so we know it’s going to protect it well. It has been handcrafted to allow for all of the phone capabilities to be attended (buttons, speakers, camera, charging).
We ordered the Tanon SLIM WALLET for Beau (although I ordered a second wallet so I could have one, as well. After his wallet arrived & I saw how great it would be for my cards, cash & ID – I decided to get one, too).
He will appreciate the sleek, minimalistic design now & for years to come. It easily fits in a pocket, so he’ll be able to use it to grab what he needs.
We bought Ethan Airpods this year (he’s been talking about them for at least a year now), so the AIRPODS CASE from Tanon was a perfect choice. It’s smart in looks with its sleek shell, which we had personalized with his initials. He’s going to love it!

Glasses from Zenni
Zenni Eyewear is awesome. You can upgrade any of the Zenni frames to be blue light blockers by adding Blokz® lenses, starting at $16.95. It’s so simple: Just go to Zenni & start with Pick a Frame, then choose Blokz® when selecting lenses.
We recently ordered a pair for our daughter and son because they have the option of including the Blokz lenses, which are designed to block harmful UV and blue light. They protect your eyes from digital eye strain, blurred vision, and they help you sleep better, as blue light is associated with poor sleep.
These glasses are great for anyone working on a computer or for a student taking a class online. They are great gaming glasses for gamers, too. The Blockz are lightweight and they have virtually no color distortion.
The pair that we just ordered (SKU: 206825) is a medium-wide frame with a keyhole bridge. The fashionable look is a twist on the classic tortoiseshell pattern. Made with light and flexible TR90 plastic, they are so comfortable, making them perfect for everyday use.
Phone Stand from Tekneksavr
The Tekneksavr, developed by a certified professional ergonomist, is an ergonomic aid that attaches to your phone. You may have seen it as it was featured in the Houston Chronicle and the LA Times. This phone accessory is a great solution to Text Neck, which many people are suffering from these days.
Doctors recommend holding your phone at “eye-level” to maintain the natural curve of the neck while avoiding bending the neck. The only problem is that holding the phone up can add stress to the shoulders, not to mention we feel goofy doing this. Bending our necks can increase our head weight from 12 lbs to an effective weight of 60 lbs, and it’s been found that some people are bending their neck as much as 60 degrees!
For every inch we move our head forward, the effective weight increases 100%! The result is neck pain for 1 in 5 individuals, headaches, and even damage to the spine. Avoiding poor posture and extra stress to the neck is important for our kids, who are still growing, as poor posture may affect normal spine development.
The Tekneksavr was developed to solve this problem. This phone stand is a great tool to use with our devices to avoid bending the neck. It can be propped against your waist when standing, propped on your thigh when sitting, used as a selfie stick, or used as a phone stand. It also has an adjustable length wand that rotates 360 degrees, which allows you to view your device vertically or horizontally as you vary your viewing angle. You can find it here.
Headset from Turtle Beach
The ROCCAT® Elo X Stereo gaming headset is the perfect headset for gamers. Compatible with nearly all gaming systems, this PC headset from ROCCAT, which is Turtle Beach’s PC brand, gives you more for your money.
This nearly weightless gaming headset is comfortable and functional. The dynamic fit is incredible, complete with a floating heat pad with a self-adjusting metal headband and memory foam ear cushions, with from Pro Specs™ glasses-friendly comfort.
The pitch-perfect sound is due to the precision-tuned 50mm speakers with a detachable noise-canceling microphone. It has immersive surround sound, including 3D audio on PS5 – which adds verticality to the soundscape, meaning you get to hear sounds above you, below you, and around you.
Plus, the 3mm jack means this PC gaming headset has multiplatform compatibility. It includes the pink/green splitter cable. It connects to everything from the PC to the newly-launched Xbox Series X|S and PS5, Xbox One and PS4, and Nintendo Switch consoles and compatible phones/tablets.
The ROCCAT Elo X Stereo headset is a great gift with its game sound/mic performance, comfort, and multiplatform compatibility. Check out this YouTube video for more information, or you can take our word for it & pick it up at Best Buy for $49.99.
I hope these gifts give you some ideas for this holiday season. They are gifts that will be appreciated & remembered.
