41. ZUS Car Charger and GPS Car Locator

ZUS car charger and GPS car finder

Oh ZUS. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways? First, it’s a dual USB charger that plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter (not that many cars come with a cigarette lighter nowadays, but I digress, and thankfully the outlet is still there. Second, there’s an app available for both Android and iOS that uses GPS to track the location of your vehicle. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time locating my own car at the mall, let alone a rental car. Third, it charges your device twice as fast as normal cigarette lighter car chargers. (PRO TIP: Put your phone in airplane mode to get it charged even faster.)

This is one device I travel everywhere with. I’ve even asked a couple of friendly-ish bus drivers to plug it into their outlet to charge my phone during those long overnight bus journies. 🙂

Price: $29.99

Where to Buy: ZUS Car Charger

42. Travel Packing Cubes

Eagle Creek Travel Packing Cubes Christmas stocking stuffer ideas for men

As unsexy as these are, they are quite useful for just about any traveller. The meshy bit allows you to see what’s inside at a glance, and the cube itself allows you to keep everything in one place. Still probably far more sexy than my collection of mismatched hotel laundry bags I use to organize my stuff though.

Price: $21.20

43. Scratch Map

For anyone itching to go travelling (hee hee), this Scratch Map may be just the thing.

Well, that’s probably not the actual idea behind this, but you get the picture. In any case, it’s a cute Christmas gift idea for any travellin’ man.

TP Link WiFi Extender Repeater Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for guys

If you’ve ever felt the pain of staying in a hotel room that’s just a smidge too far away from the WiFi signal, then next gift idea will bring some much needed comfort. It extends your laptop’s WiFi signal to pick up signals that were previously out of reach. Many users state they get 4 bars where previously there was one. Works for both Windows and Mac operating systems, and considering it’s also less than 20 dollars, this is pretty much a steal.

57. SAS Survival Guide

SAS Survivak Guide unique Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who travel

Considered by many as the best survival handbook on the market, the British Army’s SAS (Special Air Service) Survival Guide covers not only emergency preparedness and outdoor skills, but many topics similar books don’t even begin to address. Some examples you say? Determining directions, understanding rescue signals, identifying plants, dealing with different climates and terrains, reading clouds for weather prediction, plus detailed directions and diagrams for trapping, skinning, gutting, and cooking animals. Just to name a few. Available in print or Kindle editions, it makes a great Christmas gift idea for any man. And it’s less than 10 bucks to boot.

  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!

    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. 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.
