Today in my 2022 stocking stuffer series, we're going to keep it going with the men. Let's take a look at 101 stocking stuffers for the main man in your life.

From dad, to husband, to boyfriend, you're going to find a lot of practical and fun ideas in this list.
For Men, From a Man
This is a story I told in the previous version of the post and had to tell again. When I first sat down to write the post, and stared at the screen for a good 5 minutes. I quickly learned that I don't know men as well as I thought.
Noah (my husband) happened to be home as I was working on this. I casually asked him, “If you could get anything you wanted in your stocking, what would it be?”
Over the course of the next hour, he rattled off the vast majority of the great stocking stuffers you see below. I filled in the gaps with a little bit of research, and 101 Stocking Stuffers for Men was born! I couldn't have done this without his help.
I've included many different interests and price ranges on this post. Many of these could be used for small gift ideas if needed. I've found a lot of unique, out-of-the-box items that will make many different kind of men happy.
I try to focus on items that can easily be ordered online. We all know the best kind of holiday shopping is the kind you can do from your couch! Most of these items are available through Nordstrom (free shipping) or Amazon (prime shipping if you're a member).
What do you put in a man's stocking?
There are so many options for stocking stuffers for men! In spite of what others might say, men are as (if not more) complex than women. They have unique and varied interests, hobbies, and preferences. As you'll see below, there are stocking stuffer ideas in many different price ranges.
Don't limit your ideas to only manly scents or sports accessories. Men get lots of those small gifts all throughout the year. Christmas is a chance to really personalize your gift gifting to make the people in your life feel loved.
I'm sure you know the general interests of your husband, father, or even son. Find what they love in the list below. Simply pick one or two of those stocking stuffers to give them on Christmas morning. It's as easy as that!
Without further ado, let's look at my list of over 100 stocking stuffers for men! I hope you love this combo of classic stocking stuffers, essentials, and unique gift ideas.
