Buy a Piece of Land in Ireland Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who love travel

Like most guys, I think I’d like this gift so one day I can visit Ireland, sit on my little plot with a shotgun and holler, “Get off my land!” Recipients of this present get 1 square foot of actual land in Ireland, along with a certificate, deed, and directions.

84. Vintage Chinese Fortune Sticks

Vintage Chinese Fortune Sticks Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who love travel

When I first went to Hong Kong, like most tourists I gave these a try at a Buddhist temple. It said I would fail at silkworm farming. I still fell in love with the idea, and was blessed to have a former work manager give me a set during a Secret Santa gift exchange. This is a fancier version, and comes with an instruction booklet, and it’s a great holiday gift for any chap longing to return to Asia.

Price: $26.43

Where to Buy: Vintage Chinese Fortune Sticks

Where to Buy: Brass Pocket Compass

86. Digital Luggage & Fishing Scale

Portable Electronic Luggage and Fishing Scale Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Men Who Love Travel

While there are plenty of opinions on the internet about how much luggage you should be carrying, I firmly believe you should carry as much as you (and you only) see fit. Still, the airlines don’t necessarily agree with me. Get this cheap (but well-reviewed) luggage scale for any chronic overpacker on your list.

Price: $3.30

Where to Buy: Digital Luggage & Fishing Scale

88. Gear Tie Rubber Twist Ties

Reusable Rubber Gear Twist Ties Christmas Stocking Stuffer Guft Ideas for Men Who Love Travel

No one looks tangled, messy cords so these reusable twist ties are great for keeping headphones, chargers, and cables at bay. They’re small, so don’t expect to tame your garden hose with these, but at less than 5 bucks not many people are complaining. (Seriously, check the Amazon reviews)

Price: $2.98

Where to Buy: Gear Tie Reusable Rubber Twist Ties

89. Carabiner Clip Bottle Opener

Carabiner Clip Bottle Opener Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Men who Love Travel

Price: $2.98

Where to Buy: Carabiner Clip Bottle Opener

90. BugLit Flexible Task Light

BugLit Flexible Task Light Christmas Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Men

The beauty of these little task lights is the flexibility. The bendy legs can be wrapped around poles, handlebars, tree branches, or even clothing. A cute stocking filler for the camper, outdoorsman, or night-owl.

Price: from $9.49

Where to Buy: BugLit Flexible Task Light

91. Sleeping Bag Liner/Travel Sleep Sheet

Sleeping Bag Liner Sleep Sheet Christmas Stocking Stuffer gift ideas for men who love travel

This sleep sheet/sleeping bag liner is small enough that it’ll fit in any backpack and take up virtually no room.

Price: $9.69

Where to Buy: Blister Medical Kit

95. Resistance Bands Set

Resistance Bands Set Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Men Who Love Travel

Ahhh…the age-old question, “How to workout efficiently when you travel?” For many, the answer is a decent set of exercise resistance bands. They’re far more lightweight and portable than hand weights, and many exercise workout program videos like P90x detail some pretty cunning ways to use them in a fitness routine. This particular kit contains 5 different bands varying resistance ratios. The separate handle clips make it possible to stack them as well for added resistance.

Chuck a couple of these in a backpack or suitcase along with the included exercise guide and voilà, fitness on the go for any guy.

Price: $29.99

Where to Buy: Resistance Bands Set

96. Manly Man Soap with Reusable Travel Tin

Manly Man Soap with Reusable Travel Gift Tin Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men

Soap is a fixture in just about every man’s Christmas stocking, but unfortunately it’s usually the Irish Spring variety. This Manly Man all-natural soap comes in Cowpoke, Road Trip, Buck Naked, and Sasquatch varieties as well (among others), and the tin makes a great reusable holder for travel knick-knacks.

Price: $9.50

Where to Buy: Manly Man Soap with Reusable Travel Gift Tin

97. Goateesaver — The Goatee Shaving Template

Goatesaver Goatee Shaving Template Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men

Okay, when I first saw this I thought it was a gag gift. But once you get past the Hannibal Lector/Bane from The Dark Knight Rises similarities, I guess it does make a unique gift for any guy with a goatee. And while not necessarily travel-related, it is small enough to fit in any man’s Dopp kit.

Price: $16.99

Where to Buy: Goateesaver – The Goatee Shaving Template

98. Barbasol Shaving Cream Can Travel Safe

Barbasol Shaving Can Travel Safe Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Men

Is anyone still using Barbasol? That would be the real crime here. In any case, this looks and feels like a real Barbasol shaving cream can, but the bottom unscrews revealing a hidden chamber for your valuables.

Price: $9.97

Where to Buy: Barbasol Shaving Cream Can Travel Safe

99. Portable Table Top Tennis Set

Portable Table Top Tennis Set Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who love travel

This one’s a little pricey, but sometimes you gotta splurge. And what dude wouldn’t love a portable ping pong game? The paddle handles retract into the paddle, the net retracts into the post, and the post holds the balls.

Price: from $44

Where to Buy: Portable Table Tennis Set

100. Personalized Working Compass Cufflinks

Personalized Working Compass Cufflinks Christmas stocking stuffer gift ideas for men who love travel

For the snappy dresser on your list, these cufflinks are sure to be a hit. Although the compasses do actually work, don’t count on being able to navigate to the equator with these. They’re strictly a novelty gift idea.

Price: £22.99

Where to Buy: Personalized Working Compass Cufflinks

101. Personalized World Travels Christmas Ornament

Great for documenting that last big trip, or planning the next one.

  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.
