Great travel gifts for men are hard to find.

Or actually, shopping for men is difficult period. 

Especially when you’re trying to think of something useful, thoughtful and isn’t um, video games. Since my boyfriend is a guy that loves travelling, I’m constantly thinking of unique travel gifts for him that won’t completely break the bank. I mean, I find men aren’t as easily swayed by “things with maps on them” as I am. Bummer.

Save this post for later on Pinterest:

So, if you’re one of the many out there seeking gifts for men that travel, you’re in the right place. This list details the best travel gifts for him, suited for all budgets. I hope it helps you in your quest to find the perfect gift 🙂


Best Travel Gifts for Men Under $20

Here are some super affordable gifts for men who like to travel – all with a tidy price tag under $20!

Personalized Bottle Opener

If you’re shopping for a man with simple pleasures (namely one who enjoys cold brewskis and having his name on stuff), then a personalized bottle opener is one of the best unique travel gifts for him to receive!

Especially for those who travel often, a bottle opener is typically that one little item that we always forget or can’t find. Luckily, these ones are attached to your keys soooo… if you can’t find it, you’ve got some bigger problems to deal with. I love this simple design from Etsy.

Awesome drinkware

Badass beer glasses to remind him of his time at Oktoberfest, fancy whiskey glasses to remind him of scotch tastings in Edinburgh, etc. etc. Often, *ahem* alcohol plays a memorable role in one’s travel experiences, and with some cool drinkware, you’re able to remind him of those fond travel memories.

The perfect thoughtful gift that is guaranteed to get some real use. Click here to scope out great deals on beer steins and other drinkware.


Lightweight Travel Journal

You can never go wrong with a sleek, minimalist notebook for documenting one's travel adventures. You might think that this is a dull gift, but I've never met a traveller who wasn't mildly obsessed with nice notebooks!

The best part is you can customize the gift according to his personality, or even get one customized just for him. I love the ones from Moleskine (click here to check deals) but Etsy has a wide array of personalized options too. Here are a few.


Lightweight laptop

Last but not least, this is less "gifts for men who like to travel" and more just "gifts for any living human being", but I mean hey, let's be honest: if you're looking to ball out and splurge a bit to spoil your traveller this season, you can't go wrong with a good laptop.

Bonus points if it's lightweight and durable. I'm definitely an Apple fangirl, and don't have anything bad to say about my MacBook Pro! It has been with me to dozens of countries and counting, and is never too heavy to lug around. Click here to shop some of the best deals.
