5. Fitbit Surge Fitness Tracker
Does he love to work out? A fitness tracker is a great gift, especially if his current tracker is old and outdated. GPS-enabled fitness trackers are ideal for both cyclists and distance runners.

In addition to GPS, the Surge also monitors your heart rate, tells the time, and gives you call and text notifications.
If you’re interested in other fitness trackers with GPS, you could also consider the newer Fitbit Blaze, which offers connected GPS and a more colorful display.

For the guy who loves star-gazing, we definitely recommend picking up a telescope. The Orion 10034 GoScope II kit is designed specifically for amateurs who are interested in observing the surface of the moon. In addition to being used after dark, you can also use it during the day to observe birds or natural wonders. This affordable kit is perfect for amateurs who are just starting out, though more experienced home astronomers may want to seek out a higher-octane telescope, such as the Celestron CPC 1100 StarBright XLT GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain 2800mm Telescope. For most homes, however, the Orion 10034 GoScope II is a solid choice.
