Travel-Inspired Stocking Fillers Under £20
Whether you’re loading up on stocking fillers or you simply don’t want to break the bank, take a look at these travel gifts for men under £20, which he’s sure to love!
Travel Token Keychain
If he’s been to lots of places (or is planning to) then a travel token keychain like the ones from The Wander Club, Vagabond Life or Traveller Collective are perfect travel gifts for men. The leather keychains are usually quite smart and stylish and you can buy him the travel tokens every year, so it’s basically the gift that keeps on giving!
Personalised Travel Journal
Whether he’s a travel blogger looking for something smart and sleek to write his blog ideas in, or he just wants somewhere to jot down notes he needs for the road, a travel journal is a great gift idea and stocking filler. We particularly like these journals, which can also be personalised.
If he’s into snorkelling, surfing or bodyboarding, or simply likes to snap photos in the pool then he’ll love having a waterproof pouch. He’ll have full use of his phone underwater and somewhere handy to keep his money and keys while he’s in the water.
Foldable Water Bottle
A foldable water bottle is another stocking filler we recommend for travel lovers as they help people to drink more and roll up into a small size when they’re empty, so it won’t take up unnecessary space in his backpack. Check out this one on Amazon as it’s got great reviews and won’t bust the bank!
Scratch the World Map
If he doesn’t already have one, a Scratch the World map is a great gift idea under £20. It’ll look smart hanging over his desk, will help him remember all the places he’s been to and will help him dream up lots of new places to travel to as well!
Super Soft Travel Pillow
Okay, so you’ll probably struggle with fitting a travel pillow inside his stocking, but it’s still a great and cheap travel gift for him. For some added comfort on his next trip, go for a super soft travel pillow like this plush blue one.
Universal Travel Adapter
It wouldn’t be a bloke’s stocking without a few practical gifts thrown in. This universal travel adapter works for over 200 different countries and has three USB ports, so this should be the only adapter he ever needs to take when travelling.
Travel-Sized Toiletries From His Favourite Brand
If you know he has a favourite brand of toiletries, have a look to see whether they come in sizes of less than 100ml. Right there, you’ll have a whole bunch of stocking fillers he can use on his next trip! This Baylis & Harding set is great value or if you want to splurge a little then why not try something by ManCave?

Novelty Travel-Inspired Coffee Mug
What would a stocking be without a few novelty gifts thrown in for good measure too? Check out this fun camera lens coffee mug – especially if he’s also into photography!
Personalised Leather Luggage Tags
These leather luggage tags on Etsy look great, can be personalised and are cheaper than you might think! They’d also make a great travel gift for couples if you buy a matching set for him and his other half.
Personalised Passport Holder
Carry-On Cocktail Kit
How awesome are these carry-on cocktail kits? Because the liquids come in under 100ml, he can take them on the plane (all he needs is a glass and some mixers) or he can enjoy them when he finally gets to his hotel. There are a few different varieties available on Amazon for drinks like The Old Fashioned, The Moscow Mule, a Champagne Cocktail and a Gin & Tonic.
Compression Packing Cubes
Grab him a set of compression packing cubes like these ones if he’s backpacking or travelling hand luggage only and he’ll definitely thank you when he’s packing for his next trip!
Help him to pack light and stay well-groomed on his travels with a pint-sized shaver. This one from Braun has lots of great reviews, comes with a built-in travel lock so he won’t cut himself while it’s in his bag and is battery-powered for on the go.
Affordable Travel Gifts For Men Under £50
Most of the travel gifts for men mentioned in this section are actually on the cheaper end of the scale (around £30), so they still won’t break the bank! You’re welcome.
RFID Travel Organiser
We could never be without our travel organiser, which makes finding travel documents a breeze at the airport. Check out this RFID-blocking one, which also looks seriously smart!
It’s not just his passport that could do with some RFID-blocking technology! Help him keep his credit cards safe with an RFID wallet. Ekster is a popular brand for this type of wallet, but they can be a little on the expensive side. Here’s a cheaper option just for credit cards or check out this one, which also has space for coins and notes.
Anti-Theft Travel Backpack
Sticking with the safety and practical theme, an anti-theft travel backpack is a great gift and they’re actually a lot cheaper than you might think. Take a look at this one or this one for some affordable but no-less-fantastic options.
When dressing smartly, men who are into travel should always have a set of travel-inspired cufflinks such as these planet earth cufflinks, these airplane altimeter cufflinks or these custom coordinate cufflinks.
Smartphone Lens Kit
If he’s into photography and loves a gadget or two then a smartphone lens kit ticks both boxes. There are lots of different ones to choose from, such as this starter set or this one with a 22x zoom lens included.
Lightweight Camera Tripod
A lightweight tripod is another great travel gift if he’s into photography and travel as he’ll be able to get some great shots and pack light! Check out this one – it folds up fairly small!
Portable Hard Drive
Of course, he’ll need somewhere to store all those incredible photos he’s going to take. This fantastic hard drive has 1TB of space and is lightweight and portable so he can easily travel with it if needed.
Why not buy him a portable speaker so he can play his favourite music in the shower or while relaxing in his hotel room? This one by Sony is a bestseller on Amazon or this one by Anker is also a great option.
Travel Photo Prints
Help him decorate his “man cave” or home with some attractive photo prints. There are lots to choose from on Etsy like the ones by Andy Holmes, JW Irvine, or TravelPrintStoreCo. His favourite photographer might also have some options on their own website. You could even get some of his own photos blown up into a larger size and framed for an extra special straight-from-the-heart gift.
Customised Compass Gift
Giving him a compass that’s been personalised with a message of your choice is a sweet little gesture and makes a great travel-inspired decor item for his home as well!
Get Your Guide Gift Card
We book all our day tours through Get Your Guide as it’s easy to do online and they have a super generous 24-hour cancellation policy! So why not buy him a Get Your Guide gift card and let him pick from over 35,000 incredible experiences, day trips and tours from all over the world?!
Frequent Traveller Gift Guide: Luxury Travel Gifts For Men Over £50
And finally, if you want to splurge a little on someone special then here are our picks of fabulous travel gifts for men over £50.
Foldable Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Where would we be without noise-cancelling headphones? Probably clasping our hands over our ears in exasperation with airplanes full of screaming children or white noise! Grab him a smart pair of foldable noise-cancelling headphones if he doesn’t already have some and he’ll surely be thanking you the next time he flies!
Smart Weekender Bag
Get your favourite travel lover ready for his next weekend jaunt to the coast or epic road trip with a smart weekender bag or holdall. We think he’ll like this grey canvas holdall, this tan leather holdall or this chocolate brown leather duffel bag. Or why not get one personalised with his initials?
Travel Subscription Box
If your favourite travel lover is missing travelling right now, then definitely consider a travel subscription box as a way of either helping him to travel virtually, or to get him ready for an epic trip he plans to take as soon as it’s safe to do so. We’ve recently reviewed a whole bunch of travel subscription boxes here, but if you’re short on time, then here are the best ones for him:
Luxury Travel Experience Gift
When you know he’s already got everything he could possibly want or need for travelling, help make his next trip even more memorable by giving him a unique travel experience. You could buy a specific experience from somewhere like Virgin Experience Days or BuyAGift. But we’ve also recently heard about Tinggly, which is another travel gift experience company – but with two major differences. First, there’s no expiration date on the experience! And second, each gift box allows your favourite traveller to choose his own experience in countries all over the world! Cool, huh?!
4K Drone Camera
And finally, this one is a bit of a splurge but drone photography is becoming more and more popular with every year, so he’s sure to love a 4K drone camera if he hasn’t already got one. Prices vary a lot and you often get what you pay for, but it is possible to find some great affordable options. Take a look on Amazon, or if you’re not sure where to start, check out this one and this one – both of which are relatively affordable and are popular on Amazon.
