Shopping for guys is hard. They’ll never tell you what they want or they’ll go get it themselves. Like, come on!! Just imagine trying to find stocking stuffer ideas for them!
My dad and my husband fall under this category. They would say they really want something and then a day later you’ll see them purchase it! Have the same problem with any of your male family members? Or even your boyfriend?
Well, have no fear! Here are some stocking stuffer ideas that you can stuff in their Christmas stocking and that they will 1) continuously need throughout the year and 2) something creative that they will use.
Some of these items can be considered Christmas gifts and that’s okay. My dad has this tradition of placing some of our gifts in our Christmas stockings. It’s so much fun knowing what you could be getting in your stocking this year!
If you’re also looking for stocking stuffers for women, we have just the post for that here.
Clever Christmas Stocking Stuffers For Men!
1. Magnet Wristband
Have a handy Dad who always uses a cup to place his nails in? Or are they like my husband who tends to misplace nails whenever he is building something *sigh*.
This gift is such a useful gift for anybody who is always building and/or working on multiple projects.
Everybody needs socks! No matter what you do, you always need socks haha. If you want to go in a bit deeper If you know your dad or boyfriend works in construction or even wears worker boots. Then you can get them heavy-duty socks. Or even socks with funny designs.
3. Tile Tracker
Sorry for calling out my husband, but he tends to lose his keys and wallet easily. One time he almost washed his car keys because he didn’t check his pockets after he came home… If you have any men in your life that tend to misplace their belongings, this would be the perfect stocking stuffer for them.
4. Meat Shredder Claws
We all know that one person who just loves to barbecue and also eats meat daily. These Meat shredder claws are amazing for making shredded chicken or even pulled pork!
5. Sneaker Balls
I was introduced to sneaker balls very recently and believe they WORK! Sneaker Balls are great for deodorizing your shoes after wearing them. This item would be great for all of my athletic guys out there.
6. Lightsaber Chopsticks
I mean, come on. Lightsaber chopsticks?! Eating noodles will be on another level in my house haha. You can get a set of 2 or even 4 and they each come in different colors. Bonus! Adding in a gift card to their favorite sushi place, how cool is that?
7. Tire Pressure Gauge
A tire pressure gauge helps to indicate the pressure on the tires. I’m not a car genius, although this would be a great stocking stuffer idea for your dad, uncle, or even your Brother!
9. Portable Charger
A portable charger is a major necessity if you travel a lot. This would be great for the guy who loves to travel or who is always on the road. You can never have enough portable chargers on you.
10. Working Hands Hand Cream
This is by far the best hand cream for anybody who works in any labor job. This helps with cracked, rough skin. If you notice your dad or even your boyfriend who works in the construction field, I would totally buy this for them as a stocking stuffer!
11. Handheld Water Bottle
For the fellow runners out there. You can place a water bottle phone, keys, and even your ID to go running with you.
12. Gift Cards
You can never go wrong with getting gift cards! You can get them a gift card to Amazon, or their favorite store, or a gift card for their gaming console. This could help them buy a digital game or purchase some upgrades.
13. Whiskey Chilling Stones
This is something I’m actually looking for as a stocking stuffer for my husband. I believe this is such a super cool gift for anyone who enjoys a little drink and wants to be cool about it! Your Dad would totally make this a conversation starter with his friends when they come over.
14. Fancy Shaving Cream
Just like how women love new skincare products, and men also like to try new shaving cream products!
15. Favorite Coffee
Know someone who is a coffee lover? Buy them their favorite coffee! Or even a new edition kind. Remember to purchase the coffee in the same form he makes his coffee in the morning.
For example, if they use a Keurig, remember to buy a K-Pod form of their coffee or a bag of ground coffee.
16. Mini Booze Bottles
Another gag stocking stuffer. Place some mini booze bottles in their stocking. What a fun way to say happy holidays. If you go down to your local liquor store and pick up some of their favorite booze in a miniature form. Or even an alcohol bottle they never tried before!
17. Playing Cards
The one thing I notice with my in-laws is that they love to play cards on any occasion. I believe this would be a perfect stocking stuffer gift for the guys who love a great card game!
18. Favorite Treat
When we were younger, my mom and dad would place our favorite candy inside our Christmas stockings. Not just the small package but the ones you’ll see at Costco or Sams Club. If you know your boyfriend’s favorite candy, why not stick it inside their Christmas stocking?
19. Shoe Cleaner
Know someone who is into sneakers? Or loves to keep their shoes clean? Instead of wrapping a small shoe cleaner kit, just place it in his stocking. Or if you are getting him a pair of shoes for Christmas, you can place the shoe cleaner in his stocking.
20. Mini Hot Sauce Bottles
Another gift for our guys who love food that is spicy. Place mini hot sauce bottles in their stocking. It could be a brand that they already know or a new brand they possibly may want to try.
21. Pocket Knife
Such a useful thing to give as a gift. A pocket knife can be used for so many things. Such as; opening boxes, cutting rope, and so much more. This pocket knife is great for any guy who loves the wilderness. They can use this on their hike or even while camping.
22. Phone Case
My husband tends to drop his phone A LOT. It’s to the point where it’s cracked in multiple places. This is a clever Christmas stocking stuffer idea for any guy you know who needs a sturdy phone case.
23. Beard Bib Apron
Living with a man one thing that will absolutely know you is after they shave you’ll see their hair everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE! If you are looking for a solution (also a great stocking stuffer idea) I highly suggest giving this to them.
My husband will be seeing this in his Christmas stocking this year! Will save me a ton when it comes to cleaning up the bathroom.
