Gifts for Men Who Love to Travel
Travel gifts for men are not easy to find. Men are hard to shop for, in my opinion. They don’t get excited about a lot of things. However, a good trip can send even the blandest man into a tizzy. If that’s a man on your list, have I got some amazing travel gifts for you, all of them approved by my hard-to-buy-for husband!
1. Magnetic Travel Map
One of TravelingDad Dan Miller’s favorite travel gifts for men is the magnetic travel map he was gifted. He loves using it as a world map checklist to track his travels. This is a cool gift for the uber-traveler or maybe someone who has dreams of global travel but hasn’t made the move just yet.
2. Zeus Sport Bluetooth Headphones
You will be AMAZED at the quality of these bluetooth headphones for how little you pay for them. For under $35, the wireless headphones come with comfortable rubber ear hooks which means your earbuds stay in place while running, sweating or during any indoor or outdoor activities. These earbuds have superb stereo sound and deep bass. At such a great price, you may want to grab a pair for yourself, too.
3. Personalized Leather Wallet
When the Dad in your life pulls out his wallet, he will always remember you with this super soft, durable genuine leather wallet. The text reads: Gift To My Husband, I loved you then, I love you still, always have, always will. Not only does this wallet look good, it also includes RFID blocking as well as a functional design with six card slots and one cash slot. This is one of the best travel gifts for men because it is both useful and meaningful.
4. Ring Video Doorbell
There is a reason why the Ring Video Doorbell is a best seller. It can help keep your family protected while you are traveling around the globe or across town. The Ring Video Doorbell wirelessly connects to a home Wi-Fi network and sends real-time notifications to the user’s smartphone when someone is at the door. If a package comes when you are traveling, you can see it! With the free Ring App, users can see an HD Video stream of the person at the door and speak to that person using two-way audio communication. Ring Doorbell will send an alert when someone rings the doorbell or when motion is detected, and it works with Alexa. This product has helped to give many Dads I know some peace of mind when they’re traveling and the rest of the family is home alone.
5. Echo Dot
The 2019 version of the Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to do pretty much whatever you want. You can play music, control smart home devices, make calls, get the latest news, set alarms, and so much more. It’s a great travel gift for men because it’s so small he can easily pack it on trips to bring with him. For under $50, your wallet will love it, too .
6. Monster SuperStar BackFloat
There’s a party in the pool, and SuperStar BackFloat is throwing it. The Dad in your life can take this powerful speaker to the beach, the campsite, or lounging in the pool of the private villa you managed to snag. The BackFloat is a rugged Bluetooth speaker with an incredibly tough silicon casing that seals water out and is completely shockproof too. Plus, the gold color means it just looks like something a baller would have, yet it’s under $50. It is one of the best gifts for men who love to travel because it can be used at home or traveling anywhere!
7. Solo Arc Laptop Backpack
TravelingDad, Rapheal Ocampo, loves his Solo travel bag! This Arc Laptop backpack was made for professionals on the go. It is lightweight, durable, and can handle anyone’s busy day! The bag is equipped with a padded laptop section and multiple pockets for organization. Whether the Dad in your life is traveling for work or pleasure, this is sure to make it more comfortable. At $56, it’s a steal!
8. Panisonic Lumix DMC Camera
This Panasonic Lumix underwater camera is one of the best travel gifts for men because it’s small, yet shoots impeccable photos. It has a resolution of 16 megapixels. Raphael Ocampo at TravelingDad.com loved its WiFi capability most. He writes, “The Lumix allows you to set up a network connection so that you can upload your best photos to your phone. Once you upload there you can post to social media or elsewhere to show off your skills.” Plus, it’s waterproof!
9. What I Love About You Fill In The Love Journal
Yes, you could buy a travel journal for the man in your life to fill out, but perhaps it would be more meaningful to write in this fill-in-the-blank journal yourself and let him take it with him on his next trip. The prompts are super easy to fill out and don’t take much time at all. The book sells for under $10 and doesn’t take a lot of time to read either. It will be a keepsake that will keep you with him no matter how far he travels!
10. Allianz Travel Insurance
Travel is an adventure. And sometimes adventure goes awry. When that happens, you want to have travel insurance. TravelingMoms and TravelingDads love this annual policy for people who travel more than a couple times a year. Giving the gift of peace of mind is something that anyone can appreciate.
11. Globe Whiskey Decanter
Take a trip around the world as you rotate this Whiskey Decanter set on its axis. With whiskey being one of the most popular drinks right now, this decanter shows it off really well. This is one of our gifts for men who love to travel because it lets them dream of world travels along with is Friday night Whiskey Sour! At $33, it’s an impressive gift at a small price.
12. Cool-it Caddy Men
The Cool-It Caddy Icepop Bag is super helpful on those long flights, road trips, or even golf outings, especially in warm destinations. It is a handsome bag but does not look like a purse! It features top opening access with zippered closure, side handle, and a fully insulated interior. The freeze and go inserts keep medications, drinks and snacks fresh and cool from 4-7 hours. Just pop the inserts in the freezer until frozen, place in the lining of the Icepop Bag, pack with essentials and hit the road!
13. Awesome Travel Jacket
Traveling Dad editorial director Paul Eisenberg says he “felt like a boss on an ice-cold flight” because he never took off the Eddie Bauer Men’s CirrcusLite Down Jacket. That same day it also served him during a chilly airport pickup in NYC as well as a brisk Florida evening hours later. A handy carry-sack, stowable in the jacket’s inside pocket, makes the jacket very portable and easy to shove into a carry-on or personal bag.
14. Power Outlet Center
For the gadget-heavy guy, why not help him keep all of them charged? The Powramid C Power Center features a unique design, with six power outlets arranged around the body of the surge protector. This gives users the freedom to accommodate bulky power bricks without obstructing neighboring outlets. And everything gets charged…whether he’s on the road or at home!

16. Beats Studio3 wireless headphones
These are the next generation of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Lightweight yet fantastic sound and noise canceling abilities. They are one of the best travel gifts for men because they are compact, foldable, durable, and better sound than ever. Plus, they are just plain cool!
17. Wet Dry Bags
“Real men use wet bags,” TravelingDad Paul Eisenberg told us, apropos of nothing.But he was sincere about how useful the Travelon Wet and Dry Bags are for the “unspeakably disgusting” moist gym clothing he goes through while traveling. The nylon bag is a vast improvement over disposable gallon zip-top bags, Paul says, which are fine early in the trip, but by the time you head home “you want something sturdy for your wet unmentionables.” Gifts for men who love to travel can be practical too!
18. Ekster Ultra-Slim Wallet with Tracker
The person who receives this wallet will never lose their wallet again! Help him keep track of his Benjamins with the Ekster wallet and tracker. The bluetooth tracker means you can always “call” your wallet or track it if you’ve misplaced it. (It also works in reverse and will “ring” your phone…even if it’s on silent.) This ultra-slim wallet comes in a stylish gift box too.
19. Dynotag Savvy Traveler Starter Kit

This is one of the travel gifts for men that will make them look good!
21. Travel Alarm Clock. Really.
We asked Paul why he honestly still needed a travel alarm clock and he assured us other methods, from wake-up calls to smartphone and tablet alarm apps, have all failed him at one time or another. Plus, why should he waste the battery of his phone or wonder if it really did automatically switch time zones when he did. The Marathon Travel Alarm Clock also gives him the date, temperature and swivels 180 degrees.
22. World’s Toughest Sunglasses
Go ahead and up the ante with these sunglasses. Forceflex High Performance Eyewear are nearly indestructible, scratch resistant and the most flexible, adjustable frames on the market.
