Our Christmas stocking fillers for men gift guide should give you the inspiration you need to track down that perfect filler for Santa’s sack.

So here are our top ten ideas for stocking fillers – and there’s even more choice over on Pinterest, so you’re bound to find something here to put a smile on his face!

Bear Grylls – Mud, Sweat and Tears

Known and admired by millions – whether from his prime-time TV adventures, as a bestselling author or as a world-class motivational speaker – Bear has been there and done it all. Now, for the first time and in his own words, this is the story of his action-packed life.

Here’s what a reviewer on thought of the book: “A great read. Exciting, funny, honest – I was completely hooked from the start. A no-holds-barred account of what made Bear the crazed adrenalin junkie he is today, as well as the family man devoted to his wife and family.”


‘If found, return to wife’ cufflinks

Fabulously fun cuff-links for your husband!’ If found… Return to Wife’. These apparently best-selling cufflinks make a great gift for any occasion where you plan to combine formal shirts with getting a little too drunk. (Which is surely any time you’re going to wear a formal shirt? Perhaps not.)

Each pair is handmade and decorated from scratch, with a modern-vintage look that will be sure to catch admiring glances. Of course, they also publicise that he’s taken. A smart little stocking filler for your man.



Lee Evans Roadrunner DVD

Roadrunner is Lee’s new show, which he performed over 60 nights in some of the biggest arenas in the country. Lee filmed this DVD during his five nights at the O2 Arena. We think any man would be delighted to wake up on Christmas morning to find this little stocking filler. reviews the DVD: “The brightest, buzziest show of the year. The material can be quite pedestrian – the ridiculous things that women say and nightmare retail experiences form a dominant strain – but when Evans is in full gurning, grinning, strutting, loping mode, the effect is magnetic.”


Jean Paul Gaultier aftershave

The fragrance for men by Jean Paul Gaultier. This Jean Paul Gaultier has been dubbed as a “classic” fragrance, which according to the product descriptions we’ve read, manages to be “powerful, sensual, fresh, sexy, virile and sensitive.”

One reviewer on gave it five stars: “I’ve been using it now for seven years and I love it – nothing matches. The ladies love it.” So our advice is to ignore the possibly eyebrow-raising design and plunge right in. Definitely a stocking filler for him that will get you talking.




Dark brown fleece-lined slippers

From Mantaray comes these dark brown mule slippers – a great stocking filler idea for men. These men’s slippers have a stressed leather-look effect with a cream fleece lining, so they’re sure to be nice and comfortable after a hard day in the office. We think this men’s stocking filler will last a lot longer than what many men will be expecting to find in their stocking this Xmas.



Star Wars R2-D2 Mug

If the man in your life is a Star Wars fan, this fantastic stocking filler will combine two of his passions: droids and drinking. Yes, this 3D ceramic mug is pretty authentic in its detailing – and if you’re wondering how on earth you’re supposed to get any liquid into it, we should tell you that Artoo’s head acts as a lid to keep that cuppa piping hot.




Doctor Who sonic screwdriver remote control

As featured in our top ten gifts for this Christmas, the Dr Who remote control also makes an excellent stocking filler. (Though at £60, although it fits into the stocking, you might want to reconsider his main presents!) Since it’s a fully-functioning universal remote control which works simply by waving it in different ways, we think it’s going to be something that the whole family can enjoy for a long time. Definitely one of this year’s most interesting man-slash-geek-gifts.


The Hangover 1 & 2 DVD boxset

A Las Vegas-set comedy which follows the escapades of every bride-to-be’s worst nightmare: horrific stag night escapades, which threaten the entire wedding. An ideal stocking filler for your husband, boyfriend or brother. gave The Hangover 4 stars out of 5: “While The Hangover is certainly vulgar and not for everyone, I found it to be far from stupid. The dialog and characters are brilliant and had be laughing throughout most of the film. When you start laughing about 30 seconds into a movie, that’s usually a good sign.”



Golf bag pen holder

The golf bag pen holder is the kind of stocking filler we’d recommend for a golf fanatic. It looks like a miniature golf bag, but wait… are those real golf clubs? Of course not. They’re pens. Now stop daydreaming about golf and get on with some real work.

This golf club pen set is a snip at a shade under £15, and will bring a little bit of the excitement of the green to your man’s desk job. Even better, it raises a nice little 74p for your charity.



iPhone wallet

Trust us, your man has always wanted to keep his iPhone and his wallet in the same place. The good news is this iWallet seamlessly combines the two. A stocking filler for men that manages to be practical as well as neat and compact.
