Classic Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Him

It’s always good to include some of the classic gifts in his stocking. Ties and socks are our go-tos!

Classic Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Him

  1. Scarf – With it being winter, it’s time to bundle up. Give your hubby this nice scarf that he can wear to work or just on cold days.
  2. Sock it to Him – Include a pair of socks and a FREE printable for a foot massage from you, because every hard working man deserves a good foot massage!
  3. Pocket Knife – A good pocket knife with multiple tools is a great gift for any man.
  4. Pens – If your man can find paper, but never a pen, get him some pens so he can’t ever complain about not finding a writing utensil again!
  5. Mechanical Pencils – If your man would like an alternative to a pen, give him some mechanical pencils.
  6. Lead Refills (for Mechanical Pencils) – My hubby has a million pencils laying around, but can’t use them because he is out of lead. Some refills are perfect for any husband in the same predicament!
  7. Shoe Polish – Every man needs to polish up their shoes once in a while. Any color will do!
  8. Shoe Polish Shine Brush – To go along with the shoe polish, you need a brush to shine it on the shoes. Any man will appreciate this stocking gift.
  9. Shoe Shine Cloth – No polish is complete without a cloth to finish up the shine. This gift is sure to please.
  10. Tie Clip – A tie clip can be given to any man. It will give their business attire a more professional look or dress up an outfit for a nice occasion.
  11. Cufflinks – Every man whether he works in an office or on Wall Street can use a nice pair of cufflinks. Try a pair of classic engraved cufflinks, personalized silver initial cufflinks, or some nice stainless steel cufflinks.
  12. Necktie – Every man needs a new tie once in a while. And a tie is a great stocking stuffer. When wearing his tie, he will always know that it was gifted with love.
  13. Mint to be Together – Every husband appreciates fresh breath. This gift will give him just that along with letting him know how special he is. Get some mints, print off the FREE printable, small container (test tube), and he will appreciate a gift he can take to work with him!
  14. Headphones – Talk about the perfect men’s stocking stuffer. Headphones are great for working out, working in the yard, or listening to an audiobook. Your babe will love these when he pulls them out of his stocking.
  15. Tool Belt – These handy belts make for the perfect stocking stuffer.
  16. Matching Drinking Glasses – There are special occasions in anyone’s life that could call for a little ‘sprucing’ up. Whether it be an anniversary or a football game (my dad loves to pull out a nice glass and pour himself some sparkling cider to watch his games – funny, I know), these drinking glasses are perfect.

Couples Stocking Stuffers for Men

These stocking stuffers for Him are so cute and you can add a little gift to your stocking, too when you buy the set!

Stocking Stuffers for Men

  1. His and Her t-shirts – I know that matching t-shirts are a bit cheesy, but for the right occasion, they can be really cute! They will be sure to put a ‘cheesy’ smile on your man!
  2. Hint Box – In every marriage there are times that you wish your spouse would take a hint and pay attention to small things you want :). I sometimes really try to drop a hint (which usually my hubby gets), but sometimes he just doesn’t quite remember or ‘get it’. {WINK}. So, make these ‘hint boxes’, fill out the strips of paper, and then you each have a list of things you can get without having to try to read your spouse’s mind! In the end, you will BOTH be so much happier – less stress on guessing what the other wants and being able to receive things that are on your list. GREAT!
  3. His and Her Pillowcases – Anyone who likes to go to bed will LOVE these cute pillowcases to sleep on. With these, your spouse will go to sleep thinking of you and wake up with you on their mind still! What a great way to set the tone for the day. There are a variety to choose from like this I love you more set or this Mr. & Mrs.
  4. Date Night Stickers – Give your hubby these date night stickers and plan the week, month, or if you are really ambitious the whole NEXT YEAR’S worth of date nights! Then place these stickers on those dates so you won’t forget!
  5. Matching Mugs – I love this time of year because I get to get out our mugs and make hot chocolate! It’s making me warm just thinking about it. My favorite is the yummy extras we add: mini marshmallows, candy canes, peppermint, etc. Give him these his and her mugs to enjoy some hot chocolate Christmas night. For an added bonus to your honey, include the hot chocolate in the mugs or any ‘extras’ you will have that evening!
  6. Couple’s Journal – Get a notepad, decorate it, and give it to your spouse for you each to journal in of your memories together.
  7. Pillow Talk – Keeping the spark alive in a marriage can sometimes be difficult during all the holiday madness! This printable will help you stay close with fun conversation starters!
  8. Our Love Story Books – All couples have a story about how they met and fell in love. Make a book of your love story using magazines and some FREE printables and give it to your man for him to keep!

  11. Couple Gratitude Journal – Everyone has heard of a gratitude journal, but here is a little twist to it. Make a gratitude journal for you and the hubbs to share! You each can record things you are grateful for or acts of kindness, etc. You will both enjoy reading each other’s entries AND your marriage will be strengthened. There is nothing better than that!
  12. Year in Review – At this time of year you are reflecting on how the year went, what you did great and ways you can improve. With this gift, sit down with your man and reflect together and record your great moments. This is truly a gift that will last a lifetime.
  13. Couple’s Picture Block – Put a little twist on the normal picture in a frame gift. Make a picture block of the two of you and give it to your hubby for him to display at work or add it to the decor of your house. Either way, it will be a gift that lasts a lifetime.
  14. Designer Ornament – My husband and I have a tradition of getting a new ornament every year, as do a lot of other families. Getting this designer ornament allows you to include any pic and design you want to make it extra special for the year 2013 (or any to follow :))!
  15. Love Magnets – These magnets are so cute AND will help your hubby feel extra special with the love notes you leave hanging from them!
  16. Things You Don’t Know About Me Jar – No matter how long you have been married, there are still SO many things your spouse wasn’t a part of in your life. Fill a jar with a treat or snack of some sort along with slips of paper that your spouse DOESN’T know about you. He can pick a candy and slip of paper each day. Then when it’s empty, it’s his turn to fill it up so you can learn about him too!
