Christmas Travel Gift Ideas for Men

Toiletries case

When men travel, they need a case for toiletries such as razors, toothbrushes, combs, etc. Gifts.com suggests such a case as a gift. These come in different sizes, so consider how much he might bring. Some come with personalization so you can attach a name or monogram.

A reliable phone

Best Buy carries the 4G LTE speed powered Sony Xperia 1, a multi-faceted phone that would be welcomed by any traveler.

Of course, a suitcase can be one of the most practical gifts to get for a man who likes to travel. Travel+Leisure suggests the Victorinox Avolve 3.0. If he goes on small trips and only brings a carry-on, then be sure to get something that will fit in the cabin. If he takes a great amount on large trips, then buy him a larger bag or even a set of matching luggage. These can also be personalized. Alternatively, you can get him a briefcase if he travels a lot for business.

TravelTow Rotating Luggage Handle

ABC News recommends the TravelTow Rotating Luggage Handle. This innovative product turns any luggage with a regular rigid handle into a rolling piece of luggage. It is inexpensive at under $20 and can save a lot of effort.


If the traveler recipients travels to many different countries where he does not speak the language then he may appreciate a translator. You can get one for two specific languages.

Travel wallet

A nice compact gift for a traveler is a travel wallet. These come in different sizes to hold important documentation such as passports and identification cards.

Travel pillow

It can be difficult to stay comfortable on planes, buses and other methods of travel, especially if one is traveling for many hours. A neck pillow or travel pillow such as TravelRest – The Travel Pillow Reinvented can make your friend much more comfortable. They also make inflatable versions if he travels light. Alternatively, you could get him a travel blanket so he can stay warm on long plane flights.

A gift related to travel can make an excellent present for any globetrotting friend/family member. Price the different items to find something that is within your budget. If he is very picky about the items that he travels with, you can tell him what you want to get and have him chose the style/design he wants.
