The Amazon Fire TV Stick can turn any television with an HDMI port into a hub for entertainment. In addition to services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, the Fire TV Stick can also link up with a Spotify or Pandora account, so that playing music on your TV or stereo becomes easier. Add an affordable price tag, and the Amazon Fire TV Stick seems destined to be one of the top 10 gadgets for men this holiday season.

The New Apple TV

Announced earlier this fall, alongside the iPhone 6S, the new Apple TV works a lot like the Amazon stick, plugging into your TV via HDMI port. As with the Amazon product, the Apple TV acts as a sort of cable box to link a TV with streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO NOW, and more. The Apple TV also includes extra features, though, including the option to use the box as a gaming console. You can download apps and games to your Apple TV, and play them with a wireless controller—sold separately. Also, the Apple TV allows easy integration with the new Apple Music streaming service, so if the person on your list has made the switch from Spotify to Apple, the Apple TV is the best way to make music playable throughout the house.
