Finding gifts for men who travel can be hard – they have to be light, functional, fun, interesting – the list goes on! And if you’re someone who spends all their time Christmas shopping finding things you would like, it’s even harder. Unless of course, you’re into giving things that you can benefit from too – I mean, that’s win-win all round right?

1. Noise canceling headphones

Noise canceling headphones are a must for any traveler who spends long periods of time on trains, planes and, automobiles! Perfect for blocking out the surrounding noise they make it much easier to switch off and relax – what more could the traveling man ask for!

Don’t forget a headphone splitter so you get to benefit from the headphones too!

2. Smartwatch

Watches are usually a safe bet when it comes to gifts for men who travel. They are a great addition to any man’s wrist, whether he’s hiking through the great outdoors or treating you on date night. Smartwatches can monitor your heart rate, keep track of your location, play music, record your exercise data and more! With styles, prices, and functions galore you’ll definitely find a smartwatch that makes a perfect gift.

3. Flashlight and flask

Being prepared is a must for any traveler and, no matter where you find yourself, there’s always a need for a flashlight and a flask at some point. So having something that combines them both is a great way to streamline your gadgets!

4. Snapchat sunglasses

For the social media man in your life, these glasses are a must!

5. Travel journal

Travel journals are a great way for you and the traveling man in your life to record your own personal experiences while you’re exploring the world.

6. Anti smell compression socks

We all know that men’s socks smell 🙂 These are definitely high on the list of gifts for men who travel and are perfect for any man who loves hiking, sports or just has that habit of taking his shoes off as soon as he walks in the door!

Copper infused socks are probably the most technical socks you’ll find with reinforced heels and toes, extra cushioning and dynamic arch support, every traveling man is bound to love them!
