9 Gifts for Men Who Travel

9 Gifts for Men Who Travel

Not sure what to get for the man in your life who is always on the go? Pick from these nine hot travel gifts, which include luggage, accessories, clothing, and more.


Is there a guy in your life who is constantly driving or flying to new cities? Help him make the most of his trips—whether they’re for business or for pleasure—by giving him the gift of gear this holiday season. 

For The Businessman

Eagle Creek’s Gear Hauler is the perfect carry-on for flights, especially for those work trips that turn into weekend trips to the trails. It’s a duffel and backpack in one—making it versatile enough to bring to a board meeting, and then to a nearby campsite.

Once he’s got the bag, help him fill it up with a pair of Vans Sk8-Hi MTE Cup shoes. These weatherproof high tops are built to handle snow and ice, but don't have the bulk of traditional snow boots. They are great for both casual work events and early-morning hikes. And if he’s a newbie to the work-pleasure travel circuit, hook him up with a Pack-It Specter™ Starter Set, which will help him separate his clothes for work and play.

For The Budding Traveler

Set him up with the No Matter What™ Top Load Backpack, which will give him the space to pack for his adventures and bring some comforts from home. It’s big enough to fit all his gear for a day or overnight trip, and it has special compartments for his wants, like a laptop for streaming movies while camping solo or staying busy in transit. Pair this bag with The North Face Men’s Apex Bionic 2 Jacket for a lightweight shell that will protect him from the elements without taking up too much room in his bag.

For The Tour Guide

For the guy who is leading groups or setting off on trips that will take him many miles over many days, the ORV Trunk 30 is rugged enough to keep up with him and big enough to make sure that he has everything he needs. This bag comes with an Equipment Keeper™ compartment on the outside to secure extra gear, wet/dry compartments, and a even a built-in Porter Key™ bottle opener to help him toast to those long days. Make sure to stow a pair of SmartWool PhD® Outdoor Mountaineer Socks inside to help his feet stay warm, dry, and comfortable as he travels.

For The Day-Tripper

Does your husband or boyfriend head out on lots of quick trips? Then the last thing that he needs is to be bogged down with another travel bag. Instead, consider gifts that will help him travel comfortably and safely. Eagle Creek’s All Terrain Money Belt will make it easy for him to keep his important valuables on him as he hits the slopes or trails. And it will fit discreetly under this Timberland Bear Head Packable Down Vest, which will help him keep warm without having to carry (or wear) loads of layers.
