Guys, in particular, can be notoriously difficult to shop for, so to help we’ve rounded up some of the best stocking stuffer ideas for men. While stocking stuffers are small, they can also be unexpectedly delightful, so peruse our list to find great gift ideas for a memorable Christmas morning.


Make shaving environmentally friendly with the Bulldog Original bamboo razor. Its flexible head manoeuvres around facial contours for reliable coverage and a lubricating aloe strip soothes just-shaved skin. Tempered steel blades and a sustainably grown bamboo handle make this a green choice for a guy who values ethical sourcing as much as a smooth shave. Recycled stock packaging and environmentally friendly inks up the earth-conscious cred even more.


Every man needs a good pocket knife, and this red Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD tool has all of the basic attachments to handle everyday tasks. The 58-millimetre blade lets him slice through everything from packing tape to rope, and the other gadgets come in handy at home and on the road. Hook the attached key ring to his vehicle or house keys for convenience.


Accessories showcase what’s important to a man, so celebrate the holidays with a black and grey belt that matches the camouflage daily wear he has. This Genuine Dickies belt is made of a cotton and polyester blend for comfort and convenience, and the simple sizing eliminates the guesswork when you’re buying one for a special guy’s Christmas stocking.

He’s constantly taking the cooking outside and has become an expert at grilling everything from steaks to salmon. Help him up his barbecue game with this instant-read digital barbecue thermometer. The metal probe takes an accurate reading, so he knows exactly when to flip, and the large LCD screen is easy to read when he’s trying to create the perfect medium-rare rib eye.


Encourage your guy’s culinary ambitions with this 18-centimetre Farberware santoku knife. The self-sharpener keeps a proper edge on the high carbon stainless steel blade, so your personal home chef can feel confident about slicing ingredients and chopping cooked meats. A contoured ergonomically designed handle helps him keep a good grip on this durable knife while preparing meals for friends and family.


Your Apple-obsessed guy needs a pair of earbuds that maximize the enjoyment of his favourite devices, so stuff his stocking with these AirPods that let him listen and talk hands-free. With three hours of talk time on a single charge and an included wireless charging case, these accessories keep him connected all day long, and they sync with his MacBook and watch.


Stuff your dude’s stocking with a Christmas gift that shows you appreciate his sense of fashion as well as a need to stay cozy on blustery days. This V. Fraas soft acrylic scarf in an attention-getting paisley pattern looks equally good wrapped around the neck or hung down along coat lapels. It’s reversible, so he can switch things up when he needs a change.


Stocking stuffer ideas for men often include favourite grooming tools. Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide men’s razor blade refills fit into existing razor handles and are just the right size for his stocking. The five extra-fine blades provide an exceptionally close shave, and a precision trimmer built into the back of the cartridge helps him take care of stray hairs in hard-to-reach places.


Some of the best stocking stuffer ideas for men come in the form of snacks, and for meat-loving men, this thick-cut Jack Link’s bacon jerky makes a great edible gift. The hickory-smoked flavour and hearty protein-rich pieces may make him feel a bit wild, so be careful when he peeks into his stocking and finds this tasty meat treat.


Attention to detail has taken him pretty far in his career, and that extends to his meticulous attire. These men’s stainless steel black square cufflinks are a gift that puts the finishing touch on business suits or formal button-down shirts. Slip a pair into his stocking on Christmas morning to show him how much you appreciate his sense of style.


Help him achieve just the right temperature for sipping without any unwanted dilution with this set of Chill ‘N Rock drink stones. He can freeze the nine soapstones and add them to his whiskey glass to cool the drink in minutes. An included storage bag lets him easily bring the stones along when travelling so he can enjoy his optimized indulgence anywhere.


Give the young — or young at heart — man in your life a way to show off his casual charismatic inner self.

He’ll love getting creative with home illumination using this Merkury smart bulb. The colour-changing light features a long-lasting LED and has embedded Wi-Fi for easy control from just about anywhere.

Your spouse leads a busy life. Look for great stocking stuffer ideas for him that provide the base support he needs for everyday adventures. This two-pack of J by Jockey men’s flexible boxer briefs are made of cotton and just a hint of spandex to keep him comfortable. These form-fitting briefs give him the freedom to move whether he’s playing sports with the guys or out on a date night with you.


Ensure that he’s ready to handle any outdoor situation with this Victorinox Swiss Army Camper knife. The stainless steel tool holds up to rugged conditions, and the variety of implements let him cut kindling for a campfire, unscrew a cork and open a bottle of beer to enjoy at the campsite. This multifunctional pocket knife makes quick fixes and everyday tasks easier, especially when he’s spending time indoors.


Whether he’s watching the home game in a chilly open stadium or hanging out with friends around a winter bonfire, keeping comfortable is a challenge in cold weather.

Four light modes help customize his ride.


Whether he’s setting up your base camp for the week or handling an emergency auto repair, your DIY guy can tackle any situation.
