Shopping for guys is tough!
Even when you ask them directly what they would like, you get nothing to go on. And if they do actually give you a suggestion chances are it will be something like batteries or food.
With the help of my 4 boys, we compiled a huge list of 50 Gifts for Guys for Every Occasion. That list has some amazing gift suggestions, but stocking stuffer ideas are a whole different challenge. You’re spending your hard earned money on these small gifts, and you want your guys to love every single one of them.
But what do they really want?
Here are some fresh ideas of gifts to include in your guy’s stocking this year—items that are sure to please even the most hard-to-buy-for men in your life including the outdoorsman, the business traveler, the handyman, sports lover and more.

20 Stocking Stuffers for Guys
1. Stainless Steel Travel Mug
A great travel mug is a must-have for the morning commute.
2. Car Phone Holder
Here’s a safer hands-free alternative for when he needs to use maps on his phone.
3. Portable Speaker
These are great for game night, camping, or traveling.
5. Favorite Snacks
Does your guy like beef jerky, nuts, chocolate, or gum? Stock him up on some multi-packs of his favorites.
This doesn’t have to be a boring gift choice. Mix it up with specialty socks like high performance, colors, no-show, or compression socks.
If he loses them a lot, get some inexpensive replacements. If he’s more careful with his earbuds, go for the high performance ones.

Get one of these for his toolbox so he’ll have tons of information at his fingertips during projects.
13. Fogless Shower Shaving Mirror
If he likes to shave in the shower, a fogless shaving mirror is a must-have item.
14. Hot Sauce
Let him spice things up with a favorite hot sauce or get a new one for him to try.
15. Working Hands Cream
Guys don’t typically like to use lotion, but he’ll love this hand cream for those rough working hands.
16. Cooling Scarf
If he likes to be outside but doesn’t like the heat, this is a great choice!
