35 Perfect Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Men in 2022

Sadly, it can feel like stocking stuffers for men are thrown together as an afterthought. You know what I’m talking about: dollar store headphones, a backup power cable, colorful socks, a necktie…boring.

This year, show the man in your life how much you care. Below, we’ve gathered a list of items small enough to fit in his stocking, but which prove that you’re thinking of him beyond the basics. They’re more than just a Christmas appetizer; done right, they can be the main course.

If you want to expand your search beyond what we feature here, focus on some of our other stocking-size lists of the best, including pocket knives, small flashlights, apple watch bands, carabiner keychains, minimalist wallets, bottle openers, and everyday carry tools.

The Palmer is a Classic Utility Knife with a Killer Design

The Palmer Utility Knife


Here’s a beautifully designed and ultra-portable box cutter. The Palmer is designed to fit comfortably into even small pockets, or you can attach it to your key ring or a lanyard for more convenient carry.

It nestles in the palm of your hand for easier wielding and allows you to extend/retract the blade quickly using just your thumb. The anodized aluminum handle is insanely tough, capable of shrugging off water damage and scuffs.

When the time comes to swap out the blade, you’ll find it’s a no-hassle, tool-free job that takes just a few seconds thanks to the Palmer’s patent-pending mechanism. Best of all, you can swap out the blade for the standard utility blades you can find in any hardware store, so you can travel with the Palmer in your pocket (sans blade) and replace the blade at your destination. Now that’s everyday carry convenience and comfort you can love.

The Slyde King Flashlight Slides Open to Reveal an LED Work Light

Slyde King Flashlight


This LED flashlight is designed to make your life easier, safer, and more convenient. Not only is it a flashlight, but it can be pulled open and transformed into a work light perfect for use on any DIY task or job site.

The magnetized base lets you work hands-free, and you’ll find the battery life is good enough (2-12 hours for the flashlight, 4-24 hours for the work light) to keep up with whatever job you’re doing without needing frequent re-charging. However, when the time comes to charge, the USB-C port cuts down on how long it takes for the built-in battery to be tanked up and ready for work.

The flashlight generates up to 2,000 lumens, and the work light up to 500 lumens. The light comes with four modes, a 4X twist zoom (to let you switch from floodlight to spotlight), a battery level indicator, and a rubberized grip that keeps it securely in your hands even if you’re working in wet or muddy conditions.

Add to that IP67 waterproof rating and a body made from aircraft grade aluminum, and you’ve got a truly functional, durable flashlight you’ll use for years to come.
