1. A hoverboard

Why it's cool: It doesn't really hover as the name suggests, but a hoverboard does a good job of carrying you from point A to point B without you having to lift a toe. Hoverboards can be incredibly fast too as they can travel up to 20km/h, which is an equivalent to the running speed of a fast adult.

With the pretty bling-bling LED lights, it's no wonder a hoverboard is the hottest and most sought after tech gift right now.

2. A drone

Why it's cool: You don't need to keep a pet. Get a drone. If GoPros were the trend last year, drones have taken it up a notch or two. Flying a drone and capturing aerial views of pretty much any terrain allows any guy to slip into a satisfying 'pilot mode' that was once only possible if you owned a toy helicopter, or if you were well, a pilot.

3. A lightsaber

Why it's cool: The reality is that you don't have to be a diehard Star Wars fan to own a lightsaber and be proud of it. With the current hype of the new "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" movie, lightsabers have arguably become the coolest weapon of all fantasy and sci-fi movies. If you're a guy reading this, we know you've probably flirted with the idea of swinging a lightsaber around in your living room in an epic duel with an invisible enemy...

4. A virtual reality device

Why it's cool: A virtual reality device gives you an immersive 3D experience in which your head movements are tracked in a three dimensional world. Not only can you watch movies in a kickass 3D format, but many games especially those developed for mobile, are starting to pick up on this technology too. Perhaps the future of gaming and movie is already here.

Why it's cool: Ever since Samsung in 2013 announced it was developing a curved screen smartphone, gadget pundits have been ecstatic with the phone's potential, and Samsung didn't disappoint.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ provides users with new ways to access information, engage with their mobile device, and gives quick access to 5 favourite apps as well as top 5 contacts - all with the swipe of your thumb.

In a time when smartphones can hardly differentiate themselves from other phones, this curved screen indeed offers something fresh for the tech savvy guy. With the dual curved screen, users can enjoy more immersive viewing experience, enhanced by QHD Super AMOLED display, when playing games or watching contents.

6. A LEGO set

Why it's cool: LEGO isn't just for kids. They're for adults who don't want to grow up.

Ever since LEGO tapped onto the superhero movie market - especially the Marvel and DC series - the 'it' toy has become a craze amongst young adult enthusiasts with releases of collections, packed with the most fascinating details. A completed LEGO set makes an excellent centrepiece for the home too.

7. A portable Bluetooth speaker

Why it's cool: Consider this a more modern, edgy take on the typical surround sound home theatre system. Having a portable speaker is the most fuss-free way to share music with a group of friends at a house party, picnic, or a camp-out. You can play and control the music seamlessly from your smartphone by just syncing it with the speaker via bluetooth.

8. A very slim wallet

Why it's cool: Guys hate bulky wallets. Fitted trousers and skinny jeans have left very little space left for guys to fit their wallet in their pocket.

By using a slim wallet, only the essential items will be carried around such as identification cards, credit cards and money, blending perfectly with tight skinny jeans. No coin compartment? That's all you could ask for.

9. A fashionable backpack for work and play

Why it's cool: A well-designed, well-made bag has become a must for guys who have graduated from carrying sporting bags or lugging around dated suitcases. It's the perfect accessory and meeting place for both form and function. After owning one, guys will find it hard to leave home without their packed bags.

10. A smartwatch

Why it's cool: Smartwatches are a great way to read notifications on your phone, track your daily activities (especially health-related ones) and gain quick access to apps.

Samsung Gear S2 is one of the best smartwatches around. Gear S2 comes with a durable stainless steel body that sits slim and sleek on your wrist. You may change your watch band as per your taste from the variety of band options provided too. Things you need most from your smartphone are available with a simple twist on the Gear S2. Gently turn the bezel to scroll through long emails, zoom into a map and play the next track. Getting someone a smartwatch as a gift will definitely score you priceless brownie points.
