What do you get for the guy who has everything? What about the guy who loves to travel? These ideas for gifts for men come from our Traveling Moms and Traveling Dads. Some sell for less than $20 and some sell for a whole bunch of money. But they’re all great gifts for men who love to travel (even when they have to stay home).
Gift Guide for Men Who Love to Travel
A guy doesn’t have to be a frequent traveler to appreciate these fun and unique gift ideas. Forget the t-shirt, tie or gift card this holiday season. Instead, choose one of these gifts for men, from travel gadgets to high-end electronics, from water bottles to travel pillows, from power banks to noise-canceling headphones. These men’s gifts will delight the dad, brother, son or best friend in your life.
In addition to Christmas, these thoughtful gift ideas work well for Father’s Day gifts, birthday gifts, or gifts for any other day when he deserves something special. To make it even easier to give the perfect gift this year, most of these gift ideas are available on Amazon.
Whether you have $10 for a silly travel gadget or thousands to spend for a once-in-a-lifetime Christmas gift, you’ll find something for the man in your life on this list of gifts our Traveling Dads have on their wish lists for 2020.
Gifts for Men Under $20
When the guy in your life pulls out his wallet, he will always remember you with this super-soft, durable genuine leather wallet. It’s inscribed with words of love to a husband or son. Even better, it includes RFID blocking as well as a functional design with six card slots and one cash slot, which makes it safer for travel. This is one of the best travel gifts for men because it is both useful and meaningful.
We all stuff more cords than underwear into our duffel bags these days. Help your guy keep his iPhone charger and his computer cables in one place with this electronics organizer travel case.
Yes, you could buy an old fashioned 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 less than $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!
For the man who loves his Apple Airpod earbuds. We like the classy look of this personalized case, but we like even more that it has a hook and can be attached to a keychain or something else that is unlikely to be lost in transit. Bonus points for the personalized monogram!
Gifts for Men Under $50
There’s no reason for your Honey to be without his Netflix or Amazon Prime streaming service just because he’s stuck in some hotel room. Give him his own voice-controlled Amazon Fire Stick so he can carry it with him on the road. Just plug it into the back of that hotel room TV and — voila! — all the streaming he can handle at the touch of a button.
We love, love, love our Yeti coffee mug and other products! So this year, we’re sharing them with the men in our lives. Here are two of our favorites that sell for less than $50 each:
Do you have a man in your life who likes to look good and save money? Remind him every month how much you love him by buying him a monthly SprezzaBox subscription box. Each month, he’ll get a gift box of dapper items chosen by a stylist. Each box has a retail value of $100 and the monthly plan is $28/month. Or you can save by buying an annual plan. He’ll get everything from socks and ties to watches and sunglasses. This is one of those gifts that keeps on giving all year long!
One Traveling Dad we know (we won’t name names here, but he knows who he is) has a bad habit of taking his wallet out of his pocket and putting it … somewhere. Then, when it’s time to fill up the gas tank, a panicked search of the car ensues. Enter the Bluetooth tracker finder. It’s an ultra-slim card that slips into his wallet. Then, when the wallet is lost, he can use an app on his phone to make the card ring. Easy Peasy!
We love this Anker Powercore Elite. This portable charger is slim enough to slip into a jeans pants pocket but powerful enough to quick-charge 3 devices at once!
Set your Google Home free! For anyone who loves the voice-controlled features of Google Home, now it can go on the road too! Travelers can use the LOFT as a portable battery base that makes Google Home cordless. Since it is portable, the device can be moved from living room to man cave, home to exotic vacation rental, with ease. LOFT provides eight full hours of use on one single charge. Use the Echo instead? There is a portable battery base for those as well. And it’s under $30!
Make sure he never loses anything again with the Dynotag Savvy Traveler Starter Kit, complete with a lifetime subscription. The QR tags in the gift set connect to a private web page and use passive GPS for tracking, so there’s no need for batteries.
If the man in your life enjoys the great outdoors, you should check out REI.com! The company has a large assortment of outdoor gear, men’s clothing, shoes and more. How about a new pair of hiking boots?
We have never understood those U-shaped neck pillows. A good airplane pillow needs chin support! That’s why we love this Elegear Memory Foam Travel Pillow. It has that all-important chin support. The pillow comes in a carrying bag and includes an eye mask and earplugs.
Take a trip around the world as you rotate this Whiskey Decanter set on its axis. It even comes with two whiskey glasses! If whiskey isn’t your guy’s drink of choice, no worries. Just fill it with vodka. Or gin. Or brandy. Or, well, you get the idea. This is one of our favorite gifts for men who love to travel because it lets them dream of world travels along with their Friday night drink!
Gifts for Men Under $100
This bluetooth speaker is the go-to for tunes on the go. It’s sturdy and durable so it won’t break when a kid drops it. Plus, it’s waterproof, so it can go to the beach. It’s got a built-in microphone for calls and LED lights that make it fun at a campsite. Plus, it comes with a strap carabiner to hang on a backpack for a hike and the charge lasts all day. That’s a win-win-win-win-and-win!
TravelingDad editor Paul Eisenberg says he “felt like a boss on an ice-cold flight” because he never took off his 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.
Encourage your globetrotter to track his travels on this magnetic travel map. TravelingDad Dan Miller says it’s one of his favorite travel gifts ever. He uses it as a world map checklist to know where he’s been — and where he still needs to go. This is a great travel gift for the guy who is an uber-traveler or even just a globetrotter-wannabe.
Keep track of your home when you travel! 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 some peace of mind when they’re traveling and the rest of the family is home alone.
Traveling Dad Raphael 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.
Philips Norelco Shaver
This compact cordless shaver easily tucks into a Dopp kit and provides up to 20 shaves on one charge. That makes it perfect for long road trips when a pre-dinner freshen-up is required or those overnight flights that land just in time for a big meeting.
Gifts for Men Under $200
This portable cooler is our favorite Yeti product in this price range:
This sous vide cooker comes heartily endorsed by the Traveling Dad of Traveling Mom Breeze Leonard! She says he uses it all the time and recommends it to everyone. We love that it’s small enough to tuck into a suitcase and take with us to the vacation rental house!
We Traveling Moms and Traveling Dads love our Lumix cameras! Panasonic makes several Lumix waterproof cameras, at prices ranging from less than $100 to $300. All of these cameras are small so they’re easy to pack and carry. But they shoot incredible photos!
Why are Omaha Steaks a great gift for guys who love to travel? Because guys who also love to BBQ still want to do that when they’re on vacation! So rent a vacation condo that comes complete with a grill on the porch and bring along the Omaha Steaks. You can build your own combination of steaks to be delivered to the vacation condo (or his home if traveling isn’t on the agenda right now). If masses of red meat aren’t his thing, order the seafood, pork chops or desserts. There is no better way to say I love you than to have a giant ribeye arrive on his doorstep. Besides, if he’s happy grilling, it means you aren’t cooking on vacation!
Gifts for Men, $200 and Up
Keep your favorite man active by gifting him a FitBit Ionic smartwatch. These sleek watches not only look great, but they help coach you through your workouts and include built-in heart rate monitor and GPS, so he’ll never get lost, even when he’s getting those steps in by exploring a new city. The Fitbit smartwatch is just one of the many Fitbit products to help encourage your loved ones to stay active.
Our Traveling Dads love travel adventures and they love sharing those adventures with the whole family. The man in your life can film those memorable moments, too, then use the GoPro app to upload his videos and share them with the whole family. This camera is tough so it’s the perfect gift for the adventurous man in your life.
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 and durable. Plus, they are just plain cool!
This is the ultimate vacation for the Star Wars fan in your life. Book a trip to Disneyland or Walt Disney World so your guy can visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! We recommend purchasing your Disney tickets through Get Away Today. Not only does it offer the lowest prices, but if you ever find tickets cheaper, the folks there won’t just match the price, they’ll actually beat it by giving you a better deal. (If you call to make your purchase, be sure to mention TravelingMom!)
The ultimate luxury travel gift is a romantic adults-only all-inclusive Sandals Vacation. With resorts in the Bahamas, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua, Grenada and Barbados, Sandals has a resort that will fit your man’s interests as well as your budget. Check the site for incredible offers, including scuba diving lessons, green fees and free nights! (We’re big fans of the Sandals in Jamaica!)
What tech loving guy doesn’t want the newest model iPad, iPhone, Kindle Paperwhite. New tech means longer battery life, which is the key to happiness on long flights, or long road trips with bored kids.
