Gift Guide: Men’s Stocking Stuffers

My husband is notoriously difficult to shop for. He has everything he needs, and if he doesn’t, he buys it. I mean he is easy in the way that he doesn’t need or want much, but its so tough to figure out what to get for his stocking stuffers! I rounded up some things that I am actually buying for my husband’s stocking. For some context, he is a Director of a company and travels quite a bit. Check out what is on my (his) list!


Dude Wipes I feel like I wouldn’t be a good wife without a gag gift? This is one of those gag gifts he will actually use and enjoy. Just read the product description through the link and you’ll see…

Body Building Hair Gel Ever since I met my husband 10 years ago, he has feared that he is balding. He isn’t. He is just blonde. Even so, this hair gel should help him out! Plus he loves this Jack Black brand.

Slim Credit Card Wallet My husband isn’t a fan of wallets. For the longest time he carried them around in his wallet with one of my hair bands… This one is nice and slim so I know he will love it!

Face Moisturizer This is that Jack Black brand he loves! He has and uses this, so why not replenish his stock?

Foaming Shave Gel I like to try and get him unique/nice things when I have a chance, and a stocking is the perfect excuse! This higher end shave gel is actually not expensive at all, and I am sure he will love it!

Sunglasses I have a pair of this brand sunglasses already and I love them. They are sturdy and a great product, and inexpensive for the quality! Plus he tends to lose sunglasses…

Letter Opener My dad had a letter opener when I was a kid and I thought it was the coolest thing. I think you have officially reached adult status if you have one in your office.

3-in-1 Travel Product Since my husband travels a lot, this is a winner! This is one of his favorite brands, and why not combine all your toiletry needs into one product? Less to pack!

Cashmere Scarf As much as my husband doesn’t spend money on himself, he does like nice things. This scarf is a bargain for being cashmere! I can see him wearing this all through winter. And repeating “I love my wife” all day long as he wears it…

So those are my big choices! I will probably throw in some candy bars, gum, and lottery tickets just for fun. What was your favorite? Did I miss anything? Let me know below!

Mens Stocking Stuffer Guide

Buying for men is TOUGH. Maybe it’s just my guy, but he never wants anything. And when he does, he buys it. So whenever holidays or birthdays roll around, I am always stumped! At least with stocking stuffers I have my go-to items that are sure to please.


[eafl id=766 name=”Mens Sunglasses” text=”Sunglasses”] / [eafl id=764 name=”mens fun socks” text=”socks”] / [eafl id=763 name=”jack black face lotion” text=”face lotion”] / [eafl id=765 name=”Fitbit Blaze” text=”Fitbit Blaze”] / [eafl id=761 name=”Calvin Klein Boxer Brief” text=”Brief”] / [eafl id=760 name=”Jack Black Clay Pomade” text=”Clay Pomade”] / [eafl id=762 name=”jerky” text=”jerky”] / [eafl id=767 name=”Ibeats” text=”headphones”] / [eafl id=768 name=”gum” text=”gum”]

[eafl id=766 name=”Mens Sunglasses” text=”Sunglasses”] are a hot item in our house. Both Marcus and I have an affinity for a good set of spectacles. Marcus, however, seems to lose them as quickly as he buys them. I can’t count how many pairs of Oakley sunglasses he’s lost over the years! These [eafl id=766 name=”Mens Sunglasses” text=”sunglasses “]are so inexpensive, but you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at them. Here’s to hoping this expensive habit can be salvaged!

My husband has always been about his funky [eafl id=764 name=”mens fun socks” text=”socks”]. I am always adding to his collection, and these fit the bill! In the book he wrote (releasing soon! #shamelssplug) he explains the significance behind his socks and how it helps him at work. Go check out his website and you can preorder a copy of his book today!

My husband is not high maintenance in the least. He does, however, enjoy a good lotion or product. He started using the Jack Black line in the past couple years and he loves it! This [eafl id=763 name=”jack black face lotion” text=”lotion “]would be a great addition to his collection.

We are a Fitbit household. Both of us are pretty active, and it is a fun way to stay competitive with our fitness goals. Marcus loves his [eafl id=765 name=”Fitbit Blaze” text=”Blaze”]! And my brother in law just got one too. This would be such a great gift for the athletic guy, or the guy who wants encouragement to be more athletic.

This may be TMI, but I recently went through Marcus’ clothes. I don’t want to tell you how old some of his undergarments were. Or maybe I could try and tell you, but they were before my time and I don’t even know how old they are! (We have been together for 9 years for some context). I have been adding to his brief collection and he is a huge fan of these [eafl id=761 name=”Calvin Klein Boxer Brief” text=”Calvin Klein boxer briefs”]! A little more expensive, but I promise they are worth it. He will thank you!

Marcus has used tons of different hair products over the years. When he started using the [eafl id=760 name=”Jack Black Clay Pomade” text=”Jack Black Clay Pomade”], he was sold for life. Very easy to use and to style, and your ‘do stays put and looks effortless.

Is it just my guy, or do men love weird foods? I personally do not understand the [eafl id=762 name=”jerkey” text=”jerky “]thing, but it is always a hit. [eafl id=762 name=”jerkey” text=”This “]variety pack of different types would be a fun gift!

My husband, the king of losing all the things, somehow has hung onto his really nice headphones for a while now. He has and loves his [eafl id=767 name=”Ibeats” text=”Beats”]! Another one that is more money, but totally worth it. If you’ve never tried them, you don’t know what you’re missing! Your guy would be totally thrilled to find [eafl id=767 name=”Ibeats” text=”this “]in his sock.

Always a crowd pleaser in our house is [eafl id=768 name=”gum” text=”gum”]. I have some stashed in my car and diaper bag so I can pop a piece and not offend the world while running errands. We always need more, and we love [eafl id=768 name=”gum” text=”this “]kind!

Is yours as hard to shop for as mine? Share what your go-to stocking stuffers are! I need more inspiration!

Ultimate Woman’s Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Do you leave buying stocking stuffers to the last minute? (Raises hand…) I am trying to be conscious about it this year and get better about it. My husband, on the other hand, would admit he may or may not forget about my stocking until Christmas Eve every year… and then I get a stocking full of gum and Snickers bars. Not that there is anything wrong with that! But it got me thinking… maybe a gift guide for the guys for stocking stuffers for women might be beneficial! Here is what I thought would be AWESOME to find in my stocking. Some things I use daily but can always use more of, but I would still be equally as excited to get! And some are new and I really think I need too. Gifts are my love language! Sorry…


[eafl id=712 name=”dry shampoo” text=”dry shampoo”] / [eafl id=702 name=”kate spade wallet” text=”wallet”] / [eafl id=714 name=”bangle” text=”bangle”] / [eafl id=715 name=”essie cabana boy” text=”nail polish”] / [eafl id=716 name=”liquid eyeliner” text=”liquid eyeliner”] / [eafl id=708 name=”buxom lipstick” text=”lipstick”] / [eafl id=709 name=”lashblast” text=”mascara”] / [eafl id=710 name=”quay sunglasses” text=”sunglasses”] / [eafl id=711 name=”michael kors x ring” text=”ring”]

[eafl id=712 name=”dry shampoo” text=”Dry shampoo”] is life, whether you are a stay at home mom or not. I know I would appreciate something like this. Let’s hope she thinks you are sweet and not hinting at a hygiene issue…

I’ve had the same [eafl id=713 name=”kate spade wallet” text=”wallet”] for a few years. As much as I love it, it is time for a change. The scallops on this [eafl id=702 name=”kate spade wallet” text=”wallet”] are to die for!

This [eafl id=714 name=”bangle” text=”bangle”] is so simple and chic. Something like this is inexpensive and perfect to add to anyone’s jewelry stack!

These [eafl id=710 name=”quay sunglasses” text=”sunglasses”] are amazing! I love the black rims for winter. I really need a pair. (Husband?)

I have only gotten into painting my nails consistently in the past few months. And even when I do, the polish doesn’t last more than a couple of days. I have always just been really rough with my hands, nevermind adding children to the mix. Either way, I need to add to my polish collection! This [eafl id=715 name=”essie cabana boy” text=”gray”] is so perfect for winter.

When (or if) I do my makeup, you can be sure that [eafl id=716 name=”liquid eyeliner” text=”liquid eyeliner”] is involved. The curse of being naturally blonde is that when I don’t wear makeup or eyeliner specifically, people ask if I’m sick. Wonderful. So, if I go into public and care how I look,[eafl id=716 name=”liquid eyeliner” text=”liquid eyeliner”] is in order.

My sister-in-law introduced me to this [eafl id=717 name=”buxom lipstick” text=”lipstick”] a few months ago and I’m in love! I usually am not a fan of lip-anything since I drink so much water (or eat constantly, let’s be honest), but I can make an exception for [eafl id=717 name=”buxom lipstick” text=”this.”] It subtly plumps your lips and adds just a hint of color. It’s perfect!

I’ve used this [eafl id=709 name=”lashblast” text=”mascara”] since I was in high school. Not even joking. I’ve tried others over the years, but honestly nothing comes close! [eafl id=709 name=”lashblast” text=”This “]is a great staple, low price point, and fits perfectly in the stocking.

I love this [eafl id=711 name=”michael kors x ring” text=”ring”]! I have a cheapie version of it, but this nice Michael Kors ring would be a nice investment. (My husband dislikes when I refer to anything that doesn’t increase in value as an investment. In my opinion, if I call it an investment, it helps justify the purchase. Right?!) [eafl id=711 name=”michael kors x ring” text=”This”] looks so chic as a right hand ring. Simple and understated. Put it in the stocking!

Men, I hope you are planning ahead this Christmas! Get your ladies some nice things in their stockings this year. Believe me, planning ahead pays off!

Have a great day everyone!
