63. Into the Wild Bus 142 iPhone/Galaxy Case

Into the Wild Bus 142 iPhone Galaxy Skin Case Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Men

I’m a big fan of the book and subsequent movie Into the Wild which details the story of Christopher McCandless, the young American adventurer who abandoned all his worldly possessions, travelled through the US and Mexico, and who finally perished in the Alaska wilderness.  So when I saw this smartphone case with Bus 142 from the Fairbanks City Transit System, I just had to include it. Raving fans of the film will love this subtle homage to the beloved Magic Bus.

Price: from $15

Where to Buy: Into the Wild Bus 142 iPhone/Galaxy Phone Case

64. The Call of the Wild (Documentary)

The Call of the Wild documentary Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who love travel

If the man on your Christmas gift list liked the last stocking stuffer idea, he’ll love this one. The year before the theatrical release of Into the Wild, filmmaker Ron Lamothe headed out to retrace Christopher McCandless’ steps, visiting 30 states, two Canadian provinces, and Mexico while interviewing dozens of folks along the way. Those folks included Dr. Thomas Clausen, who debunked the potato seed poisoning theory presented by Jon Krakauer in the book and the film, and Leonard Knight, the glassy-eyed creator of Salvation Mountain in Slab City, and even the chap who found McCandless’ wallet. It’s unfortunate that the doc was mostly overshadowed by the Hollywood film released the same year, but it does still make a great gift idea for anyone interested in more in-depth detail of Chris’s story.

Price: instant download $15, DVD $25

Where to Buy: The Call of the Wild Documentary

68. Pocket Sundial

69. Fresh Balls

Fresh Balls

Well, it pretty much does what the name suggests — hygiene for the groin, it keeps your balls fresh. Talc-free, aluminum-free, and paraben-free, this lotion keeps the boys dry even in the most oppressive of heat. But don’t believe me, listen to what some of the reviewers on Amazon have to say.

“My balls are fresh, a silky goodness like three angels holding my goods in their velvety hands.”

“My balls don’t stick to my leg…this stuff really works!”

“Your nuts will never be happier.”

Enough said. It’s a fun, useful, and cheap stocker stuffer for any guy in heat.

Price: $10

Where to Buy: Fresh Balls

70. Philips Norelco Bodygroom

Philips Norelco Bodygroom 5100 Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who love to travel

While on the topic of “down there,” another great Christmas gift idea for men is a manscaping tool of some sort. You see, when a fella has been on the road for a while, things can start to get a little unkempt. I’ve had an older version of the Philips Bodygroom, but this one has a few improvements over its predecessor, including a one-hour charge time.

Price: $34.95

  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.
