Men's Stocking Stuffer Ideas (Under $10)

Ready for those cheap stocking stuffers for guys?

1. Pumice Grill-Cleaning Block

Help your guy keep his grill in tip-top shape with this stone (could be the man-take on a piece of charcoal!).

2. Credit Card Survival Tool

How cool to have 11 tools snugly fit into your guy's wallet!

4. USB Arc Lighter

I am completely sold on this arc lighter after getting one for my husband…and then both of us use it as often as we can.

It's got a long neck for safely lighting candles and grills, and you recharge it using the USB port (so no more having to fill in lighter fluid OR having to buy another one when the fluid runs out!).

5. The Salt Lick Dry Rub

Okay, okay – I'm realllllllly excited about this. You see, I live in Texas, and I've had the privilege of eating at The Salt Lick three times (it's located outside of Austin alongside a vineyard).

We've tried approximately 19 different barbecue places in Texas, and this one is THE one. So go ahead and grab their dry rub!

6. Dry Rub Shaker

This stainless steel shaker for dry rubs is definitely manly.

7. Men's Chef Black Apron

I know my husband would really appreciate this black, Masterchef-style apron. Could be a great addition to an online or in-person cooking class, too.

When I first met my husband, he wore a man necklace! I think he would've loved this fire starter one since it's both survival gear AND a fashion statement.

9. Long-Handled Digital Heat Thermometer

Help the guys in your life monitor meat temps while grilling…without singeing their arm hair!

10. Hot Sauces (Iguana Mean Green Jalapeno Pepper Sauce, Zombie Cajun “Lagniappe” Pepper Sauce, and the Belizean Heat Habanero Pepper Hot Sauce)

If your husband is anything like mine, then hot sauces are on his mind. A lot.

Pick up a bottle of two of new and exciting hot sauces your husband has never tried before at your grocery store or local hot sauce store (yes, we have lots of those here in Houston!).

Bottles to add as fillers (bonus!) to your Amazon.com orders to make your shipping free include the:

13. Small Desk De-Stress Toys

Desk toys reduce stress, and give your husband something new to do at work! Like this infinity cube fidget game.

14. Man Candy

Any other chocoholics out there?

How about putting in nontraditional but interesting candy, like a giant jawbreaker (reminding them of childhood!), or a spicy chocolate bar with chili in it?

15. Burt’s Beeswax Lip Balm (Medicated)

This is my husband's favorite lip balm by far, and I often purchase extra tins as gifts for others. The peppermint is fantastic.

Hint: another great product and stocking stuffer is a tin of Surfer's Salve.

Especially great if your man travels for business!

Great article and great ideas!

I just became a member of the World Market store, and I receive daily emails about greatly discounted items available only for that day. In response to a daily discounted deal, which was 50% off a gingerbread house (which by the way is super cute and only $4.99, before the discount), I saw all these old timey games that I used to play when I was a kid. They are small in size and will make fantastic stocking stuffers for my 8 year old. To top it off, I got yellow colored rock candy simulating deer peed on snow, and a penguin that poops out jelly beans as he walks. All perfect for a boy. Merry Christmas !!!! and thanks for all your wonderful ideas!!!


Saturday 17th of December 2011

I LOVE it when the World Market has big jugs of EVOO from Italy on sale for $7.99--amazing deal. Everytime they do (and I have not seen this sale in awhile), I buy three of them to stock us up.


Saturday 5th of February 2011

Hi, Great post I really enjoy thanks.


Saturday 4th of December 2010

Thanks for sharing these inexpensive stocking stuffer. I have seen confused shoppers looking for guidelines. I'll definitely refer to your post.

Tuesday 30th of November 2010

Love it! Plus there are tons of little things I stock up on for $1 or less year round. These are perfect! Love Christmas socks as well!! Can't go wrong there. And not so much a stocking stuffer... but I was planning on making jars of homemade granola for friends and family this year - those people I want to give a little something to but can't afford to spend a lot on. In the past, I've made cookies and chocolate bark.
