And that’s whether you have $10 or thousands to spend.
Gifts for Men Under $20
“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!
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.
Staying hydrated on a long flight, road trip or just walking from the train to the office is an important part of staying healthy. And a refillable water bottle is an important part of keeping our planet healthy. We’ve got tons of water bottles, but we keep coming back to our Contigo AUTOSPOUT. It’s got a clip so we can hang it from a backpack or suitcase. The spout closes to prevent spills, then opens with one touch, which makes it easy to use when you’re juggling luggage, briefcases and kids.
We all travel with more cords than underwear 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 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 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!
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 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 subscription to SprezzaBox. Each month, he’ll get a variety 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.
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.
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 out water 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!
We love this Anker Powercore Elite. It’s 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 room to room, or place to place, with ease. LOFT provides eight full hours of use on one single charge.
Gifts for Men Under $100
Take a trip around the world as you rotate this Whiskey Decanter set on its axis. 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!
Got a gadget-heavy guy? Why not help him keep all of those devices charged? This lightweight power strip has 6 plugs and 3 quick-charge USB ports. And it weighs less than a pound, so it’s easy and light to pack.
Make sure he never loses anything again with the Dynotag Savvy Traveler Starter Kit, complete with a lifetime subscription. The QR tags connect to a private web page and use passive GPS for tracking, so there’s no need for batteries. At under $25, it’s a gift that can save you a ton.
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 can earplugs.
Traveling Dad editor 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.
Why are Omaha Steaks a gift for guys who love to travel? Because guys who also love to cook still want to do that when they’re on vacation. So rent a vacation condo that comes complete a grill on the porch and bring along the Omaha Steaks. You can build your own combination of steaks to be sent right to his door (or delivered to the vacation condo). 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!
It can be hard to find the perfect gift for some men. Design it Yourself Gift Baskets is the #1 Custom Gift Basket site. This is a great way to find a gift for the traveling man who is hard to shop for. You can choose a gift basket theme and then select the products you want to include. Choose one of the golf baskets for the guy who also manages to fit in a round of golf on the family vacation. Or the fishing basket for the fisherman you love. Or the Snacktaskic basket to get him (and the rest of the family) through your next long road trip.
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.
This backpack is perfect for any travel–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 less than $60, it’s a bargain, too
Gifts for Men Under $200
This 2019 version of our favorite-tablet-for-the-price is the key to passing time on long flights. Download videos, stream Netflix or call home to video chat.
What guys don’t still want the girls to think he looks hot? A good pair of sunglasses — like this sharp pair of Ray-Bans — is a great first step. We love the selection at Sunglass Hut. Buy them now so he’ll already have them when you step off the plane at that fabulous, sunny resort!
Level up your gift-giving this year with this DNA genetic testing kit from 23andMe. The guy in your life can learn about his ancestry, then plan a family vacation to visit his ancestral home! It couldn’t be easier; the DNA comes from a saliva sample. Why choose 23andme? It is the first and only genetic service available directly to consumers that include reports that meet FDA standards. There are not many gifts that can give you an in-depth look into your past and future at the same time!
This portable cooler is our favorite Yeti product in this price range:
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.
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. That’s why we got them a GoPro! He can film those memorable moments, 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.
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 at the “most magical place on earth”! 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!)
Airport delays. Sickness. Weather events. You never know what can happen when you travel. When something goes awry, you want to have travel insurance. We are HUGE fans of Allianz Travel Insurance, especially the annual policy for people who travel more than a couple of times a year. Giving the gift of peace of mind is something that anyone can appreciate.
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!
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.
