Slim RFID-blocking wallet

Among my favorite gift ideas for men who travel is an RFID blocking wallet. Protect your credit and debit cards from electronic identity theft. 

And the low profile means it’s slim enough to carry in your front pants pockets so there’s no unsightly bulge in the back pocket to attract sticky fingers. Although, in general, I don’t recommend carrying anything in exterior pockets while traveling. 

Osprey Daylite Plus 

Osprey Daylite Plus Pack

This 20L backpack is a great travel gift for men. It’s perfect for hiking or serious daytripping with more capacity than the Daylite. It measures 9 x 10 x 18 inches and weighs only 1.19 pounds.  

There’s a sleeve inside you can use for a tablet or a hydration bladder. The Osprey front “shove-it” pocket is great for things you need to stow quickly but have access to easily. 

Eddie Bauer Men’s Guide Pro Pants

My hubby loves his Eddie Bauer hiking pants. They’re comfortable, breathable, water repellant and fit him like a glove. He loves the stretch and how well they move with him. 

They pack surprisingly small (great for traveling with a carry-on only) and are sun protection rated UPF 50+ 

I love that Eddie Bauer partners with bluesign to make sustainable textiles that are safe for the environment and their customers. 

Streamlight MicroStream pocket light

My hubby rarely travels anywhere without a flashlight. At just over 3.5 inches long and 0.5 inches in diameter, the StreamLight MicroStream is the perfect flashlight to slip into your backpack or pocket. And it weighs in at just over an ounce. 

This LED flashlight is made of corrosion-resistant aluminum and features an “unbreakable, scratch-resistant polycarbonate lens.” 

Portable charger

A solid power bank should be on every list of best travel gift ideas. There isn’t much worse than being in a new destination and running your phone battery down. Having a charged phone on you when you travel is a priority. 

This one by Anker is one of the smallest and lightest 10000 mAh power banks out there (smaller than a deck of cards), so it’s great for slipping into your backpack or pocket. 

It comes with a micro-USB cable (USB-C and iPhone/iPad Lightening cables are sold separately) and is good for multiple cell phone charges. 

Toiletry bag

This toiletry organizer features a double zipper opening so you have easy access to your items in the main compartment. 

There’s also a compartment for wet items (like a washcloth) and another that lies open flat. Elastic loops keep your products standing upright.  

It’s also water resistant, which is great for those who share a bathroom with someone who’s prone to get water all over the place when she washes her face…not that I know anyone like that. 

Recommended for those who check their luggage, as this is not a small case.

Smartphone camera lens kit

Take your phone photos to the next level with the Xenvo pro lens kit. It comes with a 0.45x wide angle lens and a 15x macro lens (for fine detail up close) plus a carrying case and quick release lanyard so you can carry your lens on you and grab it quickly when you need it. 

These lenses are compatible with all iPhone models, plus Samsung, Google Pixel and more. 

Kindle paperwhite

The Kindle Paperwhite is perfect for travelers who enjoy e-books but don’t enjoy reading them on backlit phone or tablet screens.  

The slim design is perfect for slipping into your pack so you have it with you on the go to read whenever you have a few minutes to pick up a good book or just whenever the mood strikes.  

You can choose 8 or 16 GB of storage. (16 GB will hold A LOT of e-books.)

The newest Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof…so go ahead and use it at the pool, the locker room, the beach or wherever.  

Wireless noise cancelling head phones

noise cancelling headphones

If you’re looking for a good value for over-ear noise cancelling headphones, try this #1 best seller on Amazon. These Anker Soundcore Life headphones reduce ambient noise by up to 95%. 

You’ll get an estimated 40 hours of play time on a single charge. If you’re in a hurry you can get 4 hours of play time on a 5-minute charge. 

They feature memory foam cushion around the ears. 

black Sony overear headphones

If you want to splash out on a top tier gift, I will always recommend Sony headphones over Bose. 

This set comes with features like a built-in microphone so you can take calls, voice access to music through Alexa, and the “speak-to-chat” feature automatically adjusts the volume so you can have a conversation. 

Yeti Roadie 24 Cooler 

Large black Yeti cooler

Perfect for the road tripper in your life, it’s tall enough to hold a 2-liter bottle upright and designed to fit well behind your vehicle’s front seat. 

The Roadie 24 also includes some improvements over the old Roadie 20. Aside from larger capacity, it weighs 10% less than the 20 while insulating better.  

Classic Moleskine notebook

If you want to go “old school” when selecting a travel gift for him, there’s nothing like a nice Moleskin notebook. The classic hard cover large size (5” x 8.25”) is perfect for journaling your travels, keeping track of your “to do” list, and more 

And the thick, high-quality paper handles inky pens quite well.  

Use the inner folder to hold ticket stubs, receipts or other remembrances of your travels.  

Comes with an elastic band closure and comes in a ton of great colors.
