Though the saying suggests food, I think we all know the way to our rural guy’s heart is truly tech gadgets! And not just any technical wonder but one that serves a functional purpose.  After all robot dogs are cute, but if they can’t fetch car keys, interest in the gift will quickly wane.

You want to give the gift that keep your guy thinking of you every day and thanking his lucky stars that he has someone who “gets” his love of all things cool, purposeful and techie.

We’ve got you covered.  These five clever tech gadgets will wow any guy on your shopping list — and with a price point under $50, you’ll probably want to pick up one for yourself!  Far better to have matchy-matchy tech than outfits, anyhow…

looq @7PM Smart Remote Controller creates a universal remote out of any iOS/Android smartphone, making users king of the couch. No more fussing with multiple controls or switching between wands to control various media; @7pm is compatible with more than 9,000 different entertainment system models.

The 2-inch @7pm device plugs directly into the smartphone transforming it into an easy-to-use remote that boasts touch-screen controls and user personalization options. The “big button” display can be used to change channels and volume, create a favorites list, and switch between devices like a DVD, set top box, stereo, or almost anything else that uses an IR remote. Shake mode (optional) adds ease and fun as viewers simply shake the phone to adjust volume and/or channel settings. It just doesn’t get any easier than that!  Plus, your guy will never have another lost remote!

    All very cool items and I have the head light. My husband and son were quite jealous over it so I bought each of them one. I know a few people that could really use that remote.
