Travel Gifts For Men

The following gift guides include small travel gifts as well as travel abroad gifts for men that travel.

If you’re in need of gifts for a traveling man, we’ve got you covered!

1. Functional & Stylish Toiletry Kit

The most universal gift to give to men who love to travel is a new toiletry kit, also referred to as a dopp kit bag.

With a lifetime guarantee, our absolute favorite toiletry bag for men is the Briggs and Riley Expandable Toiletry Kit.

It’s simple, yet sophisticated design creates a classic appeal.

Likewise, its expandable design makes it handy for all types of travel – long or short, business or leisure.

Along with the robust durability of the Briggs and Riley Toiletry Kit, it has small rubber feet on the bottom that keep it off of wet surfaces (genius!).

Look no farther for one of the best travel gifts for men, or consider this awesome buffalo leather dopp kit, or Tumi dopp kit.

Additional planning tip: Briggs and Riley has matching luggage, carry-on, and a rolling travel bag that would make a great gift for day travel too!

2. Mobile WiFi Hotspot

Another great gift for men for both business and recreational travel is a mobile hotspot!

Long gone are the days of being annoyed by the lack of reliable WiFi Networks when you own the Skyroam Solis Lite!

What we love about the Solis Lite is its lightweight and portable design that makes it easy to pack in a suitcase, briefcase, or even in your pocket.

Be sure to accompany this purchase with a flexible Sky Roam data plan that allows you to buy service by the day, month, region, or GB (it will not work with other carrier plans).

We prefer to store our hotspot in this CaseSack that has a main compartment plus a mesh pocket for the charger and power bank.

Additional planning tip: Solis Lite receives rave reviews from international travelers who report being able to receive excellent WiFii in Europe, North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

3. Portable Charger

Also on the top of our list for useful travel gifts for men is a portable battery charger! 

For anyone who owns a Smartphone, having a portable battery charger on hand is an absolute must, especially when traveling or on the go.

Whether using your Smartphone for GPS, photos, traveling apps, or for talk and text, you’ll be at a major loss if battery power is lost.

My top recommendation for gifting someone a portable battery charger is to ensure that it is universally compatible, lightweight, and has ultra-fast charging power – like this one.

With over 33,000 positive reviews, most people love that this Anker charger is slim and small enough to fit in your pocket.

4. Bluetooth Tracker

For men who like travel accessories, they’re sure to love this high-performance Bluetooth tracker.

You can directly attach this powerful Tile Pro to keys, backpacks, briefcases, or anything else you need to keep track of during a busy outing or adventure.

Simply use the Tile app to ring your Pro when it’s within 400 ft., or even ask your Smart Home device to find it for you.

Tile works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Xfinity, and Siri.

5. LEATHERMAN Multitool

Another great universal travel gift for men is a pocket-size Leatherman multitool.

This multi-purpose device can help get just about any project done as it includes: knives, pliers, screwdrivers, wire cutters, bottle and can openers, a file, a saw, and a ruler (14 tools in 1!).

Along with including a Leatherman on your camping checklist, consider it as a gift for men who enjoy cabins, RVing, boating and exploring the wilderness.

Plus they’re handy to have around even when not traveling!

6. Yeti Cooler

One of the most fun and useful travel gifts for any outdoor, adventure, RVing, or road-tripping traveler is a YETI Cooler! 

This popular brand of indestructible coolers is widely known for its unmatched insulation and ice retention abilities.

Available in several different sizes and colors, our favorite is the YETI Tundra Haul which is the first-ever YETI cooler on wheels.

7. AirPods

A fun option for travel gift ideas for men or travel gifts for dads is a pair of Apple Airpods!

These wireless Apple Airpods with charging case provide high-quality sound for playing games, listenings to music and podcasts, or watching videos.

For guys on the go, the 24-hour+ battery life, as well as the compactness and convenience of pint-sized earbuds, make traveling with them an absolute breeze.

As one of our best family road trip tips, pair a gift of Airpods with an Apple Itunes gift card for your man to make themselves an updated travel playlist!

Additional planning tip: Guys love noise cancelling headphones too if they don’t mind wearing a headset. Check out these ones that have over 35,000 five-star reviews!

8. GoPro Camera

Another great travel gift for men is a GoPro action camera.

GoPros are a must-have for guys who love to record their adventurous moments – think hunting, hiking, snowboarding, or white-water rafting!

The sleek and compact GoPro HERO8 captures both photos and video, as well as is waterproof, and extremely durable.

Guys can connect their GoPro to a smart device using its WIFI feature. Hence, they can view their videos on a computer or smartphone at any time.

You can also monitor the camera’s activities from these devices, using them as a remote control.

Additional planning tip: Looking for more gift ideas? AirPods also top the list of our top travel gifts for teens!

9. Travel Gift Cards

If you’re shopping for a man who truly seems to have it all, consider getting him a travel gift card.

For men who love to travel, consider gifting them a travel gift card that will help add to their music and movie playlist, fund a future airplane ticket or hotel stay, or provide gas for a cross-country road trip.

The following travel gift cards can be purchased on Amazon.com or found at local big-box stores such as Target and Walmart.

  • ITunes
  • Spotify
  • Netflix
  • Lyft
  • Amazon.com
  • Visa
  • Airline gift cards
  • Hotel gift cards
  • Gas gift cards

10. Trendy Hardside Luggage

A bit of a splurge item, a perfect gift for men who travel is a piece or set of hard-side luggage.

As a best-seller in luggage, this Samsonite Omni PC Hardside Expandable Luggage is both useful and stylish, plus, makes a great mens’ travel gift.

With its 10-year limited warranty, multidirectional spinner wheels, expansion capabilities, and trendy look, we think this is THE perfect gift to give a guy!

In addition, teach them our expert packing tips, as well as pick up some packing cubes (our most recommended travel product) to compliment the purchase!

11. RFID Blocking Passport Holder

Every traveler needs someplace to safely store their passport, ID, boarding pass, and credit cards.

A personal favorite traveling item of mine, a travel passport holder, is guaranteed to be a useful travel gift for anyone with upcoming air travel.

This RFID blocking travel passport holder doubles as a wristlet and has an exterior pocket large enough to fit a Smartphone inside.

12. Travel USB Charger Adaptor

This particular universal travel adaptor accepts plugs from more than 150 countries.

As one of the most useful travel gifts overall, you cannot go wrong with purchasing this affordable travel adaptor!

13. Digital Picture Frame

A fun and heartwarming gift for men who love to travel is a digital photo frame!

There is no better way to stay connected to your travels, be reminded of fun travel memories, and to re-live a family vacation than to be reminded of it via photographs.

This 15-inch Pix-Star frame allows video and photo sharing by email or via the Pix-Star app (iOS and Android) on your smartphone, making it the perfect gift to share pictures instantly with your loved ones around the world.

14. Travel Cocktail Kit

These compact and portable cocktail kits are ideal for airplane rides, hotel rooms, and on-the-go excursions!

Available in a 4, 6, or 8-pack travel cocktail kit, I love the idea of giving these as Father’s Day gifts, Bachelor Party gifts, or to give to your man before a business trip or guys’ weekend getaway.

Each cocktail kit provides the premium ingredients needed to prepare a perfectly tasting cocktail, however, does not include the alcohol.

Be sure to check them out and share them as travel tips!

15. Tie Case Organizer

If traveling for business is a regular occurrence, one of the best gifts for men who travel is a tie case organizer.

LeanTravel products look to redefine the standards of luxury and functionality with their stylish travel products as well as are made with durability in mind.

This case can fit up to 6 ties and contains an inside storage area to safely store cufflinks, bow ties, tie bars, collar stays, and other travel essentials for men.
