Gift Ideas for Men for $10 or Less | Cool Budget Presents for Husbands, Uncles & Dads
Fun & Inexpensive Stocking Stuffers for Him
Most people find buying presents for men quite challenging, especially on a strict budget, so I've listed plenty of choices here for under $10. These inexpensive products are ideal as stocking stuffers as well as small individual gifts, and I've tried to pick a range of fun and useful items.
I've displayed conventional options such as mugs and key rings along with more creative ideas like reaction training balls to make sure that a wide variety of tastes are catered for.
I hope you find the gift you are looking for!

Swiss+Tech Micro-Max 19-in-1 Tool
How many tools can you fit into a key ring? 19 apparently! As a result of clever design, this impressive collection of tools folds down into a small and compact shape, suitable for keeping in a pocket or purse. I reckon any practical guy or gal would appreciate this cool gadget as a gift.
MagnoGrip Magnetic Wristband
This magnetic wristband is a quality product and would make a great present for any DIY enthusiast or woodworker especially. It's extremely practical and helpful - like having an extra hand!
DC Comics Superman Socks
Along with neck ties, socks (usually Wallace & Gromit themed!) were the gift I most frequently gave to my dad for birthdays and Christmases. Novelty socks have long been a traditional gift for guys and you can find all kinds of patterns available, including these awesome Superman ones:
Manly Man Soap in a Gift Tin
You don't often find soap aimed at the male market, but I think that this product definitely fits the bill - especially with the creative, vintage-style packaging. Also, the scent is musky and there aren't any pink bows, sparkles or florals anywhere to be seen!
SKLZ Reaction Ball - Baseball Agility Trainer
This product is slightly over the $10 budget but I wanted to include it anyway as I think it would be a top choice for any sports person - especially those with a keen interest in baseball.
Great Moustaches Mug
According to Confucius, "A man without a moustache is a man without a soul." If you know somebody who agrees with this sentiment and sports a fabulous mustache, this mug would be a perfect choice of gift!
Goodyear Silver & Black Travel Mug
This travel mug is definitely styled as a rugged men's product, with the tire effect band in the center. Very well suited to mechanics and guys with an interest in cars.
Mr Bar B Q Stainless Steel Smoker Box
A smoker box is used to infuse meat with a wood flavored smoke to give it extra depth. The way you do this is by first soaking some wood chips* in water for half an hour, then draining off the excess water and adding the chips to the smoker box and attaching the lid. The box is then placed directly over the heat source in a grill and heated on a high setting until the chips begin to smoke. The temperature is then readjusted to what you need for the cooking, and the meat is put on the grill. The lid of the grill is closed whilst the meat cooks, which traps the smoke inside and soaks into the food. The slower the meat is cooked, the smokier you can make it. Yummy!
* As an extra tie-in gift to give along with this smoker box, you could also include a bag of flavored wood chips if you wanted.
Norpro Meat Thermometer
Highly useful gadget for cooking and barbecuing, this thermometer measures the temperature in the center of the meat. It could also be used as a joke gift for people who always burn food on the grill!
Van Der Hagen Premium Shave Set
This set is super value and contains everything necessary to recreate a traditional wet shave at home. A brush shave is fun to try to feels nice on the skin.
Jack Daniel's Whiskey On Water Glass
This whiskey glass is an officially licensed Jack Daniels product so it's nice quality, and makes great use of the fact that whiskey floats on top of water. Certainly a neat way to drink a shot, and it would be an enjoyable gift for whiskey drinkers.

This multi-purpose screwdriver is bound to come in handy for any homeowner, and everyone knows that guys like their tools! This product is just really great value considering the build quality and the range of 6 tips included.
Crazy Moose Hat
If you can't buy a ridiculous novelty hat at Christmas, when can you buy one!?
So if you know someone with a sense of humor or a strange taste in hats, then I'm sure you'll be able to find a suitable design online to make them laugh.
