When searching for the perfect travel gifts for men, you’ll want to get him things he’ll actually use. This mens travel gift guide gives you all the best ideas and won’t waste your time on things that don’t fit into his travel lifestyle.
Plus, all of these travel gifts come in under $100, so you’ll still have enough money to actually see the world. I’m all for spending less money on ‘things’ and more on experiences, but here are some essentials that will help make his hectic travel days easier.
The Top Travel Gifts For MEN Under $100
Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Headphones are an ideal gift for a frequent traveler, especially one who flies a lot. These noise cancelling wireless Bluetooth headphones by Cowin actually rival some of the big brand names we all know and love. Here’s the best part – they’re half the price! They fully charge in 4 hours, but give you 30 hours of playtime. Combine that with their 18 month warranty and how comfy they are to wear, these are the perfect gift for any travel guy!

Basic Soft-Touch Tees
Basic Tees are so important for any guy on the road. These super soft and stretchy shirts by Alfani get high ratings and come in lots of different colors. They are casual enough to wear with swim shorts on the beach, but nice enough to pair with khakis or jeans for day-wear. Tip: they are a little tighter on the fit, so size up if you are unsure.

Fire 7 Tablet
One of the best travel gifts for men on the market – the new Fire 7 Tablet. It works as a Kindle and a tablet all in one, so you don’t need to carry multiple devices and tons of books. You can load it with movies for long flights, stream Netflix from your hotel room, or read dozens of books beside the pool. The battery life is longer, the tablet itself is lighter and it claims to be more durable than the latest iPad. All for a fraction of the cost!

The travel gift that protects your money – a RFID blocking wallet! This leather wallet from Herschel not only looks trendy, but it also has some cool safety features. It has built-in RFID technology that shields your personal information from electronic scanning machines. Without RFID technology, credit card info can be stolen when a thief bumps into you in public, which hacks the ‘tap’ feature on your card.

Travelon Toiletry Bag
I personally bought my husband this Travelon toiletry kit FIVE years ago and he still uses it to this day. It’s super high-quality, washable, sturdy and fits more items than you’d expect. I asked him why he likes it so much and he said “It has a waterproof pouch inside incase something leaks in my suitcase, and it hangs on the back of the door or a towel rod.” He also mentioned he likes how it organizes all his man-stuff so he can find it easily.

Essential Travel Hoodie
No matter where a man might travel, he is going to run into some cold weather. (Usually it’s from getting trapped indoors or on transportation with frigid AC on full blast!) Getting him a soft and comfy zip-up hoodie is a great gift because it’s so versatile and practical. This one by Carhartt in particular is great because it doesn’t weigh a lot for packing into luggage, but it still keeps off a chill. Tip: This hoodie fits long and slightly big, so take that into account when ordering!

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
A great travel gift for any music loving man – the JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speaker. This little speaker has too many features to name, but here are a few that stand out: It’s waterproof, so he can use it outside in bad weather, or even poolside. It gives 12 hours of playback time on a single charge. It can have 2 devices paired to it at once so users can take turns playing their music. The sound quality is surprisingly impressive and yet it only weighs 1lb. Great, now I want one….

Black Collared Shirt
The one thing about travel is you never know when you might need to dress up a little. Heading to different restaurants or situations might all of a sudden call for a certain dress code, and you don’t want to show up unprepared. However, over-packing dress clothes takes up a lot of room – which is why a simple collared shirt like this one from Lacoste is a great idea. A simple black collared shirt can morph from being casual beach-wear into most situations that require something a little dressier.

If you’re looking for gift ideas for men who travel, consider getting him this smart heart rate monitor and sleep tracker!

One of the best features of the Fitbit Inspire HR is that it lasts up to 5 days on a single charge, so it doesn’t need to be plugged in constantly.
