6 Holiday Gifts He’ll Actually Use

Sick of getting your man or papa something that stays in his drawer or on the shelf untouched? These gifts will have him saying gracias–and he'll really mean it!

Perhaps the most in-demand gift for anyone with the XY chromosome, Microsoft’s Xbox One provides exceptional launch games (“Need for Speed Rivals,” “FIFA 14”) with super realistic graphics. If you get a chance to play around with it while your boyfriend is asleep, try it out. The improved Kinect system empowers you to virtually control everything in your home entertainment system room—from changing the channel on your TV to raising the volume on your external speakers. Remember, the Xbox One isn’t just a gaming console, it’s a life changer.
