gifts for men who travel

It’s time to do that holiday shopping! If you’re looking for a present for the man in your life that loves to travel, this list is for you! We’ve included gifts in a wide variety of prices and styles for you to choose from. Now, here is the complete list of gifts for men who travel….

Tech Gifts for Men Who Travel

LOOP Adapter

There is always a lot of planning involved when traveling to another country. In the past, I would always look up what type of outlet each country uses and then if I didn’t already have the appropriate adapter I would have to go out and buy one. The LOOP adapter is great because you can just bring it along and don’t have to worry about how you will plug things in a different country. I love that it also has USB plugins.

BOSE Noise Cancelling Headphones

Anyone else all about the over ear Bose noise canceling headphones? I love them, but for traveling I prefer the earbuds. Not only are they much easier to pack, but I also like earbuds while flying because then I can still rest my head against my pillow or the window and I don’t have big headphones in the way. They are also perfect for blocking out the noise of things like the loud engine noise on planes.

UE Roll 2

My husband Thomas bought one of these speakers a few years ago and we absolutely love it. It is easily portable, connects to any device by Bluetooth, is waterproof, and it floats! Another thing we love about it is that you can connect multiple speakers together. In other words, a friend of ours also has one of these speakers and at a party, we can put both speakers in different places and they will play the same music through the Bluetooth connection. 

ProCase Electronics Organizer 

Is anyone else guilty of having just way too many cords? When we travel we always have headphones, phone cords, camera cords, aux cables etc. To keep them all organized this roll-up organizer is a lifesaver. I love this one because the roll-up style is great for organization and I feel like it takes up less space in my luggage than some other electronics organizers.

DJI Mavic Air Fly More Combo

OK, this is definitely a splurge-worthy gift, but if you are splurging, this is the top travel gift I would suggest splurging for. We just bought the Mavic Air Fly More combo and it was without a doubt the best purchase we have made in a long time. The amount of amazing things that this drone can do is ridiculous.

I saw a quote recently that said something like, “Thank you drones for making pictures and videos that used to cost thousands of dollars available to everyone.” So true. So true.

Travel Day Gifts for Men Who Travel

Carry-On Bag

Who doesn’t love a good carry-on bag? This one is perfect for an overhead bin on a plane or just to take in your hand for a short trip. It’s extremely lightweight but durable and perfect for any frequent traveler.

Travel Organizer

I’ll admit it, I’m usually that person rifling through my bag for my boarding pass, however, I’ve gotten better about it and my secret is definitely a travel wallet. Travel days can be stressful. This wallet simplifies things by providing a place for all travel documents and passport. It’s extremely convenient and will make travel days so much easier!

Anti-Theft Backpack

This anti-theft backpack is great for your laptop and anything else that needs to stay super safe. This is great for travel days but I also love it for exploring big cities.

Sleep Mask 

Good eye masks are hard to come by. I hate that I can just never get all the light out. I think my nose is just too big or something. Anyway, this eye mask is perfect for blocking all the light out plus it is extremely soft and comfortable. Every frequent flying woman will love this gift!

Travel Accessories for Men

Snorkel Mask

We like the full face snorkel mask because this one has a GoPro mount. The full face view makes for a really cool snorkeling experience. The only downside to these full face masks is it is difficult to dive down with one on.

Life Waterbottle

Having a refillable water bottle is a must have for any woman traveler. I particularly love this one because the straw in it kills bacteria and parasites as well as reducing chlorine and pesticides.

Packable Hammock

If you are shopping for a guy that loves to be outdoors while traveling, this hammock is great. It is made of parachute material so it is extremely durable but also folds down to an extremely small size when you need to fit it in your baggage. This hammock also comes with straps and steel carabiners so it is easy to attach to any trees. It also comes in a variety of colors.

Microfiber Towel

A friend gave us a microfiber towel last year as a present and now we don’t go anywhere without it. If a guy in your life loves to travel to tropical places, I guarantee he’ll love a microfiber towel. They are excellent because they dry so much faster than traditional towels. Plus, they take up wayyyy less space in luggage.

Airbnb Gift Card

Am I the only person who had no idea that Airbnb gift cards were a thing? Well, apparently they are! An Airbnb gift card is the perfect gift for a guy who loves to travel if you don’t know what else to get them. Every traveler (well almost every traveler) loves Airbnb!


Every traveler needs a nice journal to keep track of all the cool things they experience! I love this one because it’s small and can fit easily in a bag. Plus, the design is simple and understated.

To Wear While Traveling

Rainbow Sandals

We love Rainbows because they are the perfect travel flip-flop. The sole is durable, they are comfortable and last for a very long time.

Keen Newport Sandals

For living in Costa Rica, we live in our Keen sandals. These are a great gift for a guy who travels to warmer climates. You can wear them in the water. You can wear them hiking. You can wear walking in a city. 

Books for Men Who Travel

Destinations of a Lifetime

This is the perfect coffee table book to give as a present for a travel-loving man. I love that this book not only has amazing photographs, but it also includes info about each location with the best way to get there and when to go.

How to Travel the World on $50 a Day

This book is written by Matt Kepner who is well known for his awesome travel blog called Nomadic Matt. This guide is great for any guy who is thinking about long-term travel. Matt has been traveling for several years now and really knows his stuff.
