The Best Stocking Stuffers Under $50 for Men
Perfect for fathers, brothers, husbands, boyfriends, best friends and more, these budget-friendly finds will make great gifts to slip in their stockings.
From opening jars with tough-to-twist-off lids and cracking jokes to occasionally offering a shoulder to cry on when I need it most, the men in my life definitely make things better. And yet, despite doing so much, they often ask for so little in return.
So, this year, I've made it my mission to turn the tables around and spoil them with stocking stuffers they'd never buy for themselves, from useful gadgets to funny books and handy accessories. Even better? They're all under $50. Scroll on to see the list and show your dad, brother, husband, boyfriend, best friend and more just how much you appreciate them.
Bring a little order to his office whether at home or on-the-go with this luxe leather charger roll-up case. The clever organizer contains multiple compartments for his headphones, USB drives and more and can even be customized with his initials hand-stamped on the exterior.
Dad jokes never go out of style. If he's a new dad or dad-to-be, then sneak this hilarious and essential "parenting" book into his stocking. Inside The Very Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes, he'll find 224 pages filled to the brim with jokes that will make his kids groan, sigh and walk out of the room. Dad - 1. Everyone else - 0.
You'll blow his mind and tastebuds with a hot sauce set packaged like a bundle of dynamite. When you hand him the kit, let him know that the Chipotle Pepper pairs well with tacos, Smokey Bourbon with barbecue, Garlic Herb with pizza, Garlic Pepper with wings, Cayenne Pepper with eggs, Garlic Herb with seafood and Ghost Pepper with Thai food. (We're kind of jealous, honestly.)
If he loves a good gag gift, swap last year's snow globe for this hilarious Mars Dust Storm. Once the red clouds clear, he'll see the planet view of Mars, with detailed topography of Valles Marineris and Olympus Mons on one side and an adult and child astronaut on the other.
If the way to his heart is through his four-legged best friend, then hit him with a personalized pet portrait for his dresser or nightstand. You can customize the frame with a natural, charcoal, black, espresso or another finish and add his buddy's name down at the bottom.
We love a man who cares for the environment, and we have a feeling you do too. Give him a way to sip and eat sustainably wherever he goes with this reusable flatware set.

It's hard to argue with a new hammock. If your guy's happiest when he's in the woods, surprise him with a compact travel hammock that he can take anywhere. Though crafted from lightweight polyester, the seat is incredibly durable and comes with a convenient pouch for easy storing in his bag.
Whether he's at home or on the road, your guy will get great use out of this black leather travel case. Inside, he'll find dedicated compartments for his watch, cufflinks and wedding ring, plus a zipper closure to keep everything nice and secure. You can even monogram the top with his initials for a personal touch he'll love.
By day, he goes to work. But by night, he captures heroes and collects his reward from the Empire. Sound familiar? If so, give your gamer guy a special spot for his "weapon" of choice with this Boba Fett-themed tech stand. When he needs the controller to track Jedi through the galaxy, he can swap in his phone so Boba has something else to hold onto.
Consider this the practical gift that he never knew he needed. If he's guilty of cramming, rolling or wrinkling his clothes in his duffel bag or suitcase, hand him this set of packing cubes. The three mesh bags in small, medium and large will keep his outfits organized until he's back home.
