I’ve had a lot of women email me asking, “do you have any ideas for stocking stuffers for your husband?“
I often don’t think about Christmas gifts until the last minute! I’ve got some big things, but I often leave little things, like stocking stuffers, until later. And I find buying gifts for men really challenging.
So a while ago I asked the question on my Facebook Page: what are great stocking stuffers for husbands? And I decided to compile a list of handy stocking stuffers, sexy stocking stuffers, yummy stocking stuffers, and more! So here we go:
(Note: Updated in November of 2015 with new ideas–and current prices!)
I know you’ll find something here you’ll love!

Tool Logic Credit Card Holder 9 Tools in one – $12.50
This is the coolest thing! It’s the size of a credit card, but inside are stuffed 9 different tools–a blade, a toothpick, an opener, tweezers, and more! I love it, and guys will too.
Travel Alarm Clock & Flashlight (in one!) – $13.40
So handy for the guy that spends a lot of time on the road. It’s an alarm clock and a flashlight in one!

Sexy Stocking Stuffers for Your Husband

You can get it in paperback or for your ereader. But how can you give an ebook in a stocking? Well, great news! I’ve got coupons now that you can download and print out to put right in there. There’s a link in the book that takes you right to the coupons, but you can find them here. Here’s a very small version of one of the coupons:

Want to make your husband putty in your hands? Denis Merkas created this awesome video course that couples can take together to learn how to give each other amazing massages. If your husband is stressed at work, or if he works hard physical labor, you can make him feel amazing (and sure, he learns to massage you at the same time!) The videos are PG rated, but are really helpful and quick. Each video is just a few minutes long, but they add up to one amazing massage as you learn new techniques and then figure out how to put those techniques together and watch him melt. And you can access them right away–it’s a lifetime membership.
Pocket Constitution – $1.50
On a totally different note, if you have a liberty-loving American husband, he may love a pocket constitution! Just something small you can easily carry around to remind yourself, and those you’re talking to, what the limits of government really are.
Dilbert 2016 Desk Calendar – 12.08
For every guy who works in an office, Dilbert comes to the rescue! Hilarious cartoons for cubicle living and bureaucratic incompetence.
Fun Stocking Stuffers for Men
Original Wizard Game – $4.20
Is your husband into card games? This one’s awesome! It’s kind of like a much more complicated, but addictive, euchre. Play with 3-6 people, but it’s wonderful for having another couple over. If you want to start doing more social things this year, with less reliance on video games and movies, try Wizard! It’s our favorite.
Exploding Kittens Card Game – $20.00
“Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.” Yes, you have exploding kittens. But you can also get them NOT to explode by using laser beam cards, catnip, and more. It’s the hottest new card game, guaranteed to make your family laugh! Can be played by 2-5 players.
Classic Dave Barry 2016 Desk Calendar – $10.11
Dave Barry is a humor columnist for the Miami Herald, and is absolutely HILARIOUS. My husband and I have read some of his books out loud together–and doubled over laughing, barely able to get through sentences. So share this desk calendar with him to make him laugh this year!
Pick up a gift card to Starbucks, or Amazon, or iTunes. If he’s a guy who loves Starbucks but who feels guilty spending that much on coffee, give him a gift card so he has your blessing! Or give him a gift card to fill up his Kindle or iPod.
If you’re Canadian, CardSwap is a great source for gift cards! They offer all major gift cards in the country, and you can buy them there and earn points, which you can then use to earn FREE cards to ANYWHERE. And here’s what else is cool: If you have a bunch of gift cards you’ve never used, you can “swap” them for ones that you will use!
(right now, for instance, you earn almost 9% in points if you buy an Applebee’s card).

Packs of Gum – $1.00
Everybody loves gum! Give him something he’ll think is a treat.

Stocking Stuffers To Make Him Look–and Smell–Great!
O’Keeffe’s Working Man’s Hand Cream – $6.95
Does your husband work with his hands–even in the cold? He likely gets chapped hands, but who wants to use girly cream? Get him some manly cream–that works great!
Old Spice classic aftershave – $7.34
You can’t go wrong with Old Spice!
Facial Hair Trimmer – $10.49
Okay, most men don’t like to admit it, but once you hit a certain age, hairs keep growing. And they don’t stop! Here’s a handy but inexpensive trimmer for those hairs that keep sticking out.
Philips Beard Trimmer – $17.95
If your man is really into facial hair, and wants to keep growing it past Movember, then get him this specialized trimmer just for his beard. No more scissors that don’t work!
Men’s Thinsulate Gloves – $24
If you live somewhere where it’s cold, get your man some thin but warm gloves. Great when filling up with gas, when taking pictures outdoors, and any time you’re taking a walk!
Healthy Stocking Stuffers for Your Husband
Have a health conscious hubby? Here are some fun ideas. But please–don’t buy these just because you want your husband to lose weight! He has to buy into the idea already, or else the gift likely won’t go over really well (it’s the equivalent of him buying you a bathroom scale). But for a guy who loves to move, these rock:
Pedometer–Count your steps! – $14.33
Have you walked 10,000 steps today? Here’s a pedometer that keeps track! Just put it in your pocket and leave it be. It can even be set to monitor brisk steps or calories.
Bike Computer/Odometer – $16.17
Husband into cycling? This 20 function bike computer tracks speed, distance, time, calories burned, and more!
Joggers’ Bluetooth Headphones – $19.99
These are normally $70, but are on massive sale. They’re comfortable headphones for jogging/running with bluetooth capabilities for almost all popular devices. Battery is rechargeable and lasts for 6 hours of music. Instead of having to plug it into the device, which can be difficult when jogging, the bluetooth gives more freedom of movement (so the headphones don’t get yanked off). Fun!
Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Wristband – $96.03
You’ve heard about Fitbit–but maybe you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet. This Christmas is the time! It’s awesome–the wristband tracks steps, distance, and calories burned, and then at night it tracks your sleep and your quality of sleep–and then wakes you gently in the morning. It syncs with your computer, phone or tablet to help you keep track of your fitness. It’s truly the revolution! (and you can get one for yourself in pink, too!)
BONUS: Give Him the Gift of Sleep!
Slumber Cloud Temperature Controlling Pillowcase Covers and Mattress Covers – $49.99-$170.99
Do you sleep “hot” while he sleeps “cold”? Do you bundle up while he’s throwing off the covers? Slumber Cloud has a patented technology that keeps your pillows and comforters a constant temperature while you sleep–absorbing heat when you produce it and keeping the bedding cool, but releasing it if you get cold to warm it up. So you’ll sleep so much better, and stop bothering each other with different internal thermostats. If you’re looking for a great gift, give him the gift of sleep!
And check out Slumber Cloud’s complete sets–with pillows, pillow covers, mattress covers, sheets, duvets, and more!
