Gift Ideas for Guy Travelers

GREAT gift ideas for the Guy Travelers on your list

Why are guys hard to buy for? Am I the only one who thinks that? Every year I hear from women that they need ideas for the guys in their life.

Look no further! If your guy is a traveler, you’ll love these ideas for your guy.

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Felt Valet

How many times have you or your favorite guy traveler left something behind in a hotel room? Small things are the most likely to get left behind in the rush of packing and heading off in the morning. This lightweight and super soft valet folds flat and keeps all his small goodies in one place so nothing gets left behind.

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Charging Station

Everyone has multiple devices that need charging – phones, cameras, laptops, iPads, iPods, and even watches! If your guy plugs in a different one in every plug in the room then something is going to get forgotten. We have done that plenty of times…until we got a charging station!

This is the charging station  we use and we take it everywhere! It keeps everything that needs to be charged in ONE spot so nothing gets left behind. AND, it only uses one plug so that leaves other plugs in the room open for things like an iron or a hair dryer.

Your travel guy, whether he is a business traveler or a traveler for vacation, will love this gift.

Gift ideas for the Guy Traveler – High Speed Portable Charger

Portable chargers are a GREAT device that can be used every single day. This one is awesome because it is a high speed and charges a ‘compatible device to 80% full in 35 minutes’ which is lightening fast. Another cool feature isa flashlight which is fantastic in case you need them in the night and you are in an unfamiliar place while traveling.

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Behind the Seat Coat Hanger

I love this idea! This hanger is the perfect spot to hang a coat while driving, whether it is for a long road trip or just to get to the airport. I think I might get one for us because I hate a coat hanging in the window – it just isn’t safe not to be able to see out of the window!

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Manly Cleaning Stuff

A guy who camps will enjoy these wipes for a ‘shower’ when you are out in the woods. Pre moistened so no extra water needed and best of all – they don’t smell like a girl! Actually these are completely unscented and the packaging says “Dude” sized.

They say that smells can trigger memories more than any other sense can. So why is it that hotels have soaps like lavender and flowers? That is wonderful for a girls’ weekend, but what about the manly guy traveler?

Try this uber manly smelling soup. This manly smelling soap comes in masculine smells like pine tar, cedar citrus and gold moss. If you order these, please let me know what gold moss smells like. 😉

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Travel Fitness


Traveling makes it hard to stay on a workout schedule. Regular workouts cut down on stress and improve well being. Keep your guy feeling great while on the road!

Fitness buffs LOVE working out – even on the road and this kit helps them do that – even if they arrive at the hotel after the gym is closed…or when it is being renovated.

Keep that core tight which also helps keep back pain at bay! These small bands are really fantastic for a hotel workout and they are lightweight and pack small.

Muscles need to constantly be challenged to remain strong. Your guys will enjoy a challenging and interesting workout with these cards that give you lots of ideas for new exercises.


 Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Cat Nap Blanket

Want to keep your traveling man germ free on a flight? Give the gift of keeping those feet warm, toasty, and off the GROSS airplane floor. (If you need convincing how disgusting the carpet can be….read here.)

This cool blanket has pockets for your feet and folds up into a tiny pocket. There is even a video on how to get it all back into that tiny pocket! Which your guy might need, but I sure would!!

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Keep Valuables Safe in a Hotel

There are lots of places to hide money when you travel. The easiest it to use the hotel safe if there is one. These ‘unsavory’ underpants hidden ‘safe’ has to be the craziest place to hide money that I have ever seen.

Whether your guy might actually USE this ‘safe’ to hide money or just laugh his head off when he opens this as a gift, I predict a lot of these sold this year.

Here is another safe and this one is a little more palatable. The trick to using these is to not throw it away when you use all the deodorant!

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Travel Safety

Waking up in a new hotel room will have you stumbling around in the dark. Once I broke a toe that way when I ran into the corner of the bed in the dark. If your guy packs this little night light will make the whole place safer!

Outdoorsmen will like this cool gadget which is in the form of a bracelet, but contains these tools: compass, whistle, fire starter scraper/emergency knife and it is made from 550 military grade Paracord. In all honesty, I have not idea what ‘550 military grade paracord’ is, but doesn’t it sound really cool and manly? Your guy will think so, too.

If your guy isn’t a ‘bracelet’ guy then how about the THIS cool camping safety gadget to hang from a backpack. This one is really even cooler because it has 27 tools: aluminum foil, bandaid, whistle, carabiner, flashlight, wire saw, tool card, instructions, alcohol  pad, cotton, compass, U buckle, fishing hooks, floats, weights, pins, paper clip, fire starter, swivels and paracord rope. Cool stuff for our outdoorsman!

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Bragging Rights Travel Tree Display

I love this fun way to display all your travels! It is perfect for a desk at work! The tree comes with 3 signs but you can buy an extra package and have them printed with anything you like!

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Fire Starters – Flaming Mice

If your traveling guy likes the rustic camping type adventures then starting a fire is a real issue. These cool mice make starting a fire easy and even have scents. What does a flaming mouse fire starter smell like? The fragrances include: Bubbblegum and Candyfloss (I think we call that Cotton Candy in the US), Blackcurrant and Nectarine, and a Lemon and Lime combo. Who said camp fires had to be dull?

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Travel Rest Pillow

This travel pillow is above and beyond others because it is long and allows for full lateral support. I love this one so much I’m buying one for myself. (Hey – I’ve been very good this year. Am I the only one who shops for others and themselves at the same time? LOL!) Look at all the cool ways you can use it! Wear it or strap it to the seat and it won’t slip around.

This would be a great gift for any traveler on your list!

Gift ideas for Guy Travelers – Matador Extra Bag

Airline requirements seem to change with the wind. Is your bag too big? Too heavy? What if your guy finds the perfect gift for you and it won’t fit into your suitcase?

Give him the gift of peace of mind with this extra bag by Matador.  It feels like really good gear and is puncture and water resistant. It isn’t girly like something you’d take the grocery store – this is a tough bag.

Matador sent us one to try and we LOVE it! We used the Matador Freerain 24 packable backpack which is tiny, tough, and loved by the whole family. My son confiscated it and claimed it as his own!

No matter what the requirements are this little bag will get him out of any luggage bind with lightweight extra room! Strong and lightweight, this easy to pack bag will be a favorite for your traveling guy.

Gift Ideas for Guy Travelers – Personalized Tie Bar

This little metal bar can be engraved with whatever you like. It is designed to be hand sewn (Oh, come on….easier than sewing on a button! You can handle that!!) to the back of the tie you buy at a store. This little metal bar is like a grown up version of the “I love you!” message your mom put in your school lunch each day. Give your business traveler a little love each time he puts on a tie. Have the kids choose what to say!

Gift Ideas for Guy Travelers – Travel Jar

Encourage daydreaming of travel with this cool travel jar with map decal. Use it for collecting tickets and photos and momentous of previous trips or for saving money for future trips! Either way, your guy traveler will love this cool gift.

Order online from Wide Eyed Wander through Etsy. You can feel really good about this gift because part of the proceeds from every purchase goes to a health charity.

    Hmmm…. The hanger thing is pure genius, and I just may buy a few. The manly scented soap idea? Stinko, me thinks. Can you imagine it? Beer scented soap? No need to get soap, just drink a 6-pack!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      LOL! Beer scented soap cracked me up…you could just spill a little on your wrists and dab it behind your ears, right? And you would still get to drink the rest! LOL! But, the hangers are really awesome. I’m buying some,too!

  3. Great list! I must say I love that pillow and might have to get one for my next long flight!
