Stocking Stuffers for Men

Updated on November 3, 2013

Finding Stocking Stuffers for Men

I love everything about Christmas and especially finding just what I want to fill stockings. I have found that stocking stuffers for men are not that hard to come up with if you will take a few things into account:

* things they use

* things they love

* things they like to eat

This year, I have quite a few men's stockings to fill, so I started looking around. I came up with a lot of different ideas and options. This article is to share the wealth! Others might need some inspiration for stocking fillers for the men on their list. So, here we go!

A Portable Back Scratcher is a Great Stocking Stuffer for Men - He can scratch to his hearts content

An inexpensive but very useful stocking stuffer most men will appreciate!

I know my dad and hubby love to have a back scratcher to reach those hard to reach itches.

**Bonus -- it saves my manicure since I don't have to do it!


Stocking Stuffers for Men -- Carabiner Pen - A Pen at Hand

1x Carabiner Retractable Keychain Pen - Black

This is on my list for my husband this year. He needs a pen handy in his job but can never find one. He tried putting it in his pocket and we ended up with an inky mess.

This one will allow him to attach it to his neck lanyard or belt loop and have it anytime he needs it. The retractable feature means it won't be laid down somewhere and lost, too!

Terrific stocking stuffer idea for my man!


I started a tradition years back -- each of my family members gets a special ornament in their stocking. It represents something they love -- food, sports, hobby, team, place -- whatever! It's all about them. They really look forward to seeing what I come up with each year.

Sports Team Ornaments make Terrific Stocking Stuffers for Men - (and women too!)

Be prepared to laugh, cry and completely relate to Justin Halpern's book! I am not a guy but man, did some of this make it sound like he was talking about my dad!

Look for unique and different items that will stand out. I like to mix in gum, candy and fruit to finish filling the stockings.

Ballzee Pocket Ball Towel , 2 Pack

My whole family is crazy about golf. I love to find gadgets or equipment to add to their stockings that they can use while they play the game.

According to my husband, this Ballzee pocket golf ball cleaner is wonderful. he can keep it in his pocket and easily clean the ball on the green. Much better than carrying a towel with him all the time. Perfect price for a stocking stuffer too!

      Some men are so hard to buy for. I'm sure this information will be very helpful to lots of people! The back scratcher would be really appreciated around here!

      These are all great stockings and stocking stuffers for men. My personal favorite it the multi tool. Everyone in our family carries one, including the women :)

      What great ideas! One year I gave hubby his own peanut butter spoon in his stocking. That went with the super duper size jar of peanut butter he got from Santa! Trying to find stocking stuffers for men is harder than those for the kids. But, you put together wonderful ideas.
