20. J-Pillow

J Pillow travel pillow Stocking stuffers for men Christmas gift ideas for travellersOkay, it does kinda look like a upside-down flaccid penis and balls so let’s just get that out of the way right now shall we. I had a chance to test one out recently and I have to say the way it supports the neck and side of your head sure does beat one of those U-shaped travel pillows you see everywhere at the airport. Phallic or not, it was named best British Invention for 2013. 

If the J-Pillow doesn’t tickle your fancy, check out my Guide to the Best Travel Pillows to see what other choices are out there.

Sugru mouldable glue rubber putty stocking stuffers for men Christmas gift ideas

Honestly, I can’t believe I never heard about this stuff earlier. Sugru is a mouldable glue that turns into rubber, and it has about 17 million uses (my estimate, not theirs.) You can use it to create a mount for a GoPro camera, reinforce Macbook charger cables, repair broken luggage, seal a leaky air mattress — just about anything you can imagine and Sugru can be used to fix, alter, or improve it. Check out the Sugru’s website to see exactly what this stuff is cable of doing. Of all the stocking stuffers for men on this list, this is the one I recommend will definitely get the most use.

Stockings, prepare to be stuffed.

39. SIGG Traveller Water Bottle

Sigg Traveller Water Bottle Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas

On my very first backpacking trip I was given a SIGG water bottle, and it lasted me up until a couple of years ago when I lost that sucker. It’s still the best water bottle I’ve ever owned. Classic. Stylish. And the water you get out of it tastes like the water you put into it — no tinny or plastic taste like some others I’ve tried.

Price: starts at $6.91

Where to Buy: SIGG Traveller Water Bottle

40. ICON iPad/MacBook Sleeve

InCase ICON Sleeve for iPad MacBook stocking stuffer ideas for men who travel

Made with the magical-sounding TENSAERALITE  technology (you know it’s special because of the CAPS), the ICON sleeve (there go those CAPS again) is a shock-absorbent case designed for Apple’s iPad or MacBook. It sports a fur-lined interior and a magnetic snap closure for added protection. The $39.99 starting price may sound hefty, but considering the protective shell case I bought for 40 bucks already broke I think it’s a worthwhile investment, especially for the clumsy man on your Christmas gift list.

Price: starts at $39.99

Where to Buy: Incase Icon Sleeve with Tensaerlite for MacBook

  1. What what an extensive list! I can definitely find something on this list for every man I know that loves to travel.

    I think the wine condom is a hilarious and great idea and I am going to go see if that ‘I shoot people’ t-shirt is available for women too 😀

  2. Bloody hell thats an extensive list!!! I was only expecting 10-15 gift ideas ha, been reading through these for for past hour! I love that escape kit, I went onto the site and watched the video of the guy cutting through the tie wrap – So cool! I like the little globe keychain too – I like any little travel mementos like that and I love looking at maps.

  3. What a great amount of options for all types of male travelers. Those who like vintage, gear/gadgets, etc. Shopping for men can be difficult, and you might have made it slightly easier! Thanks 🙂

  4. Wow! An awesome list. Some great ideas here.
    I love that you included the Lifestraw, a great local (to me) company doing awesome things for people without access to clean water, while also providing options for travellers. And I especially love that everything here is so affordable!
    Thanks.

    1. Thanks Sam! I love that Lifestraw too. I read one of the reviews and one guy said he drank the water from a pile of dirty dishes in the sink, and it cleared out all the junk. So apparently it works! 🙂

  5. Absolutely love this list, mate. I only wish I’d seen it a couple weeks earlier so I could get some of the items delivered before Christmas.

    I don’t even want to know how long you spent putting this together, haha.

  6. Very impressive list, Raymond. Women always struggle getting the right gift to men and because they love clothing, they tend to believe that men like them too. I particularly like the escape watch, but there are many other useful gifts on your list.

      1. So, I bought the Go Pro kit. Well not that exact one because Amazon wouldn’t deliver it to Australia. But I shopped around and found one in Australia that was nearly as cheap. I couldn’t believe the price. But in reference to the question about quality further up the comments, it is the exact same case that is readily available in retail outlets here for more money and without all the extra bits. So, definitely value for money in my mind. I’m revisiting the list as there are so many great ideas here. Thanks again.

  7. Jeeez Raymond, that is a long list! I am guessing the manly man with fresh balls is not really needing the escape band, because with a backpack stuffed with all these items he is not going to want to travel very far anymore… 😉

    1. Yeah I love that camera lens thermos too. In my defense, I did mention at the top of the post that women who travel would find most of these gifts useful too. Just didn’t want to name it Stocking Stuffers for All Travellers when stuff like Fresh Balls was on there. 🙂

      Thanks for commenting!

  8. As a woman who loves to travel, I can’t say I wouldn’t love to receive some of these myself! And the smartphone projector is awesome – I didn’t even know these existed. Thank you!

  9. [email protected] says:

    Love this. Wish I would have had the bed bug spray for Ethiopia! I’m just going to go ahead and leave this post open for my wife to take a gander at 🙂

  10. Really really wonderful things you mention in post. Love all the things. i like most Cufflinks, Bluetooth Speakers and Goateesaver for my self. Thanks for the sharing this nice post with us. very perfect things for giving a gift on Christmas.

    Nice article.

  11. Wow!! what a detailed list … loved almost everything you listed, but anti-kidnapping kit is a brilliant idea …
