Amazon

Buy at Amazon, $299

Why we like it:

  • Three levels of noise cancellation for a better listening experience
  • 20-hour battery life
  • Alexa-enabled for voice access to music, information, and more

You can’t find better noise-canceling headphones than the QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones, and its 29K+ reviews on Amazon back this up. They deliver a listening experience like no other, featuring touch controls, 20 hours of battery life, and they connect with Alexa. Choose between black, silver, or triple midnight.

Promising Review: Unbelievably happy with this product. I cannot live without my Bose QC 35 II’s (even considering a second one to keep at work). It is empowering to put these on and all the noise pollution just goes away. I bought them for home and hadn’t planned on taking them to my large open floor office. I put them on and suddenly realized there was a very low and loud humm coming from the ceiling…Now gone. I sit there in my cubicle and feel sorry for everyone else because they don’t have a pair of these.

Best Sports & Games Gifts for Men on Amazon

Putt-A-Bout Par Three Putting Mat

EDITOR’S PICK: BEST SPORTS GIFT FOR MEN

Amazon

Buy at Amazon, $32.99 (was $49.99)

Why we like it:

  • 3 practice cup cutouts
  • Non-skid backing
  • High-quality putting surface designed to stay smooth

This fun 3-by-9-foot, kidney-shaped putting mat is the perfect gift for golfers, from beginners all the way to seasoned pros. With three practice cups, he’ll have plenty of targets to hone his putting skills, and the built-in “sand traps” designed to catch missed shots are an added design element that he’ll love. Don’t forget to stock up on foam golf practice balls that are great for indoor use. Bonus: You can sneak in your own practice puts and be ready to hit the course too!

Promising Review: So easy to line up a putt and give yourself a true feel and a great line. I slapped down a chalk line for 6-foot putts…This has helped me soooooo much on the course. It’s made my short putts easy… This is a steal. My friend has a $200 set up and this exceeds it. It does the job and more. I have it set up on a wood floor and it rolls true.
