This year, like most years, I’m struggling to figure out the perfect Christmas gift for my husband.
He’s a bit hard to shop for.
He has high standards and usually high price points for things he wants, and during the year usually buys what he wants/needs whenever he needs/wants it.
He also has high standards as to what qualifies as a gift. He doesn’t often see things that he “needs” as gifts, or at least not good gifts.
Thankfully, I don’t consider stocking stuffers for him as stressful to figure out as they don’t have to fit his high caliber of what qualifies as a gift and what doesn’t because they aren’t really “the big gifts,” if you know what I mean.
It’s much more acceptable to have stocking stuffers be small need items, rather than small want items.
When it comes to stocking stuffers, I adhere to traditional stocking stuffers. I’ve seen some crazy stocking stuffer lists out there for kids and adults that contain items that would never fit in a stocking or are crazy expensive and, in my opinion, belong under the Christmas tree!
No, I like to keep things practical and traditional and cheap!
There’s no need to go fancy or spend a ton of money on stuff that while it may be “funny” or “unique” or even somewhat cool will not be used past a week and end up sitting on a shelf or in a drawer somewhere.

I abhor spending money on gifts that will go unused! To me, those make for lousy gifts!
And that’s why I stick to minimalist stocking stuffers for men, kids, and myself.
If you’re looking for more creative stocking stuffers for guys then this may not be the best list for you.
If you want stocking stuffer gifts for men that your man will use and love, this is a great place to start.
Traditional Stocking Stuffers for Men
Personal Care Stocking Stuffers for Men Ideas
My husband is not one for receiving personal care products for gifting occasions, so I try to limit these in the stockings, but I still give some anyway, because it just makes sense and are so easy to grab!
You can pick up body wash gift sets which include body wash, deodorant, and other personal care items like razors and shave gel for great prices from Walmart.
Car Care Stocking Stuffers for Men Ideas
My husband really likes having a clean car, inside and out. He regularly takes the car to the car wash, even though I have figured out a way to wash our car in an apartment without water. But, I have to take the time to actually do that!
I don’t like how expensive these can be over the course of the year, which is why it can be smart to take advantage of discounts or promos for the following and gift them to him in his stocking!
- Car Wipes
- Car Fresheners
- Gas Gift Cards
- Car Wash Gift Certificates (look for deals on Groupon)
Outdoor-Loving Stocking Stuffers for Men Ideas
If the guy you’re giving to really likes the outdoors, hunting, camping, sports, working with tools, and so on, think about the following gifts for outdoorsy guys as small stocking stuffers for him!
- Tactical Flashlight
- Ammo (see my gift guide for gun owners for more ideas!)
- Flex Grip Work Gloves
- Hand Warmers
- Grilling Tools and Supplies – Spatulas, Seasoning, etc.
- Small Hand Tools (or you could gift him a Wera’s Tool Advent Calendar as a unique advent calendar!)
Gadget and Electronic Loving Stocking Stuffers for Him Ideas
A lot of guys I know like their electronic toys and gadgets, my husband included. It can be fun to give stocking stuffers for him that he needs and/or would like as a little upgrade or to make his electronic use even easier or better.
- Attachable Phone Camera Lens
- Phone Case or other Phone Accessory
- Portable Phone Chargers
- Car Chargers
- WiFi Extenders
- USB Wall Outlet Plugs
Clothing Stocking Stuffers for Husband Ideas
My husband isn’t huge on receiving clothes as gifts, but if yours doesn’t mind, I think the following are pretty easy and simple stocking stuffers for guys:
You could also put in like a gift certificate to a Men’s online styling service subscription box.
Monetary Value Stocking Stuffers Ideas for Him
And sometimes giving your man money is perhaps the best way to go! They can spend the money on things they already use and can buy what they really want, when they want, during the year, without taking a hit to the budget perhaps.
Plus, at Christmastime, there are many stores and sales on Gift cards, tickets, and other things that it makes it a great way to save money.
- Gift Cards – music, restaurants
- Tickets – Movies/Concert
- Wallet or Money Clip
- Lottery Tickets
Food Stocking Stuffers Ideas for Him
I always put in an orange and some little candies but think a few other little treats would be great too!
- Orange (read why we put oranges in stockings!)
- Beef Jerky
- Specialty Popcorn
- Carnivore Club Subscription
- His Favorite Candy
Other Stocking Stuffers for Men Ideas
And lastly, here are couple more ideas I had that didn’t quite fit into the categories above:
- Christmas Ornament (including one of these nativity ornaments)
- Fancy Pens
What makes the perfect stocking stuffer?
Some of the best stocking stuffer ideas that are opened on Christmas morning are the ones that are small gifts but a great addition to something that they actually need. A gift set is a great idea, camping gear is good for someone who loves to camp, and anything high quality that is built to last is a practical stocking stuffer as well.
When it comes to good gift ideas, think about funny mugs and other unique gift ideas. A party game is always great for unexpected stocking stuffers and make some of the best gag gifts.
Don’t forget that handmade pieces are also great stocking gift ideas! Just figure out what are some of their favorite things and you’ll make a great choice! Maybe you’ll find one of my top pick ideas above as a great option for your gift recipient.
I hope this list helped you finalize some last minute stocking stuffers for men ideas!
Even if your man is happy to receive anything and isn’t quite as picky as mine, I hope he’ll still find high-value and use out of the items I listed!
