The second item I have is a RFID Protected Passport Cover. You can see right here, it’s a nice chocolate color and on the inside, you put your passport here and you can put a couple of credit cards here as well. I really like this, it’s a nice feel, it feels very luxurious and for under $20, it’s a great deal.
The next item I have for you is a leather gorgeous Journal, you can see here, it is very nice packaging and has a piece of leather to wrap it up and they have beautiful pages lined pages on the inside, nice detail, you can see right here, really nice detail, I really think that this is great for a guy that likes to take notes or a guy that’s quite the planner on the trip. I like traveling with guys that are planners because I am not a planner, I’m a fly by the seat of my pants, kind of girl. This BEDSURE leather journal notebook is 5×7 inches and it has 240 pages, it’s easy to care for and actually looks better the more worn, it is.
So, the next item we have is a 66-piece FIRST AID KIT. First Aid Kits are extremely important and again, make your guy’s life a lot easier, all he has to do is take this, pop it in a suitcase and he is good to go. There are band-aids, there’s tape, there’s a little bit of Neosporin, actually there’s a pair of scissors as well in here, check out these little scissors which are great, not just for first aid but for other things.

There are medical supplies for emergencies, survival, hiking, camping and just general travel and cycling.
And next is a great headlamp, the next item I think is great to have whether you are camping or not camping, I always take a head torch or a headlight with me. This is a great one, I really like this there are several but I found that this one had all of the bells and whistles had the brightest light and everything I needed for under $20.
So, the next item I have on the list for your favorite guy are some graduated Compression Socks. I really like this set, super high quality, very masculine with the gray, nice graduated, it’s good for circulation and it’s great on an airplane. These physics Compression Socks are 70% Nylon and 30% Spandex. They come in different colors but I found these to be the most attractive for the man in your life.
This ALPINE SWISS men’s wallet is very luxurious for being under $20 and fits perfectly in his back pocket. This is a RFID Protected Wallet as well and RFID Protection means that somebody can’t come by with that, whatever in their bag and swipe your credit card numbers. So, I thought this army green was a very handsome color as well.
Next, this is a great gift for a guy, of course, that’s also a great gift for a girl if you’re buying or you can buy couples, this is a very nice mask to wear when you’re on the airplane or it’s really light outside, and you want to take a nap. This eye mask is made by MZOO and it is a perfect mask for men its 3D contoured cup, makes it very easy on your eyes.
Next, you’re going to love this DUDE WIPES. Yep, just give your guys some dude wipes, they’re disposable, you can flush them, need I say anymore? these were only like $2. So, if you need an extra gift but don’t want to spend any money, this is your item.
This is a professional stainless steel nail clipper kit including 15 pieces of nail, clippers, trimmers and even scissors. Perhaps your guy won’t take every item but this has everything you could need and if he takes it, you can actually borrow some of it, it’s quite heavy though so be prepared that this is going to take up a lot of your weight. It’s probably like a pound and a half, so, just take note if you’re backpacking, this is probably not it, if you’re going on a luxurious trip, it might be a great fit
If you have some great ideas for guys for the holiday season, for the birthday, for anniversaries, please let me know especially if it’s under $20 because I will definitely add them to the next video. Also, if you’re interested in items over $20, make sure to watch the video of luxury items for that man in your life.
So, the next item on the list is this very nice army green flask and what I really like about it is the top here is connected, so you can’t lose it, and additionally it has a little funnel, so you can fill up with your favorite alcohol. Also, it’s quite large, so I think that this is a great fit because then you can share what’s in the flask with your man. This Hip Flask is made of stainless steel and holds 12 ounces, it comes in multiple colors so make sure to click the link below and see all of your options available to you.
So, the next item I have on the list is a very nice very lightweight, sort of a canvas style with a little clip here, you can see the clip right there. This will hold all of your guy’s electronics, so, you can put all your cords here, you can put batteries here, anything you want, little clips here, you know, maybe his Bose speakers or his Earpods or anything like that. I really like this, this is good for any traveler, not just a man but I got it in black, just so, it would be more attractive to the dudes. The 32-ounce motivational water bottle and time marker has a straw, it’s BPA free and is leak-proof. It comes in multiple colors but I thought the black was the most masculine. It actually has a straw in it, it’s got a little hook that you can hook. One thing I like about this bottle, it’s quite skinny, so it will fit in most backpacks. I also like here that this is a lock and then you can pop it open and have a drink and then lock it, so, it doesn’t leak. So, this is a great fit I really thought this was a fantastic water bottle and you can see exactly how much you’ve had to drink.
Travel PILLOW special is the fact that it is a hundred percent pure memory foam, it’s comfortable and breathable and machine washable. So, this is a neck pillow, I think this is memory foam and it feels so good, girls I’d buy one for myself as well. This is very, very nice, you can hook it onto your backpack or anything, and even though this looks extremely bulky, look what happens? it folds up and squishes up into a little tiny of course, my hands aren’t very strong but it squishes up and fits inside, this little tiny memory foam bag. So, I think this is one of the best necks pillows I have found, especially for under $20.
Next, we have a dopp kit again not like the first one that’s full, this one is empty but what I like about this one is it is a hanging dock kit; you can see here the hanger and then there’s plenty of space, and it said there are 17 pockets in here where you can put things. So, this is a bit bulky, I don’t recommend this if you’re trying to be super-efficient in your traveling, but this is actually a very nice gift, a little bit of detail right here, high quality canvas, looks really nice and would be a great gift.
So, the next five items and actually the last five items in the 20 under $20 for the man in your life are all electronics or have to do with filming, this cam kicks remote control CAMERA SHUTTER with Bluetooth wireless technology is perfect for every day and every vacation. You can actually buy this and get two of them at once, it usually comes with a little chain here, so you can wrap it around your arm but I love this, it has saved me for all of my selfies and everything like that I’m using. This universal travel adapter has an all-in-one international AC plug, it has fast charging and it has four USB ports. It covers the US, UK, EU, Australia and more than 150 countries. Look how nice this is, and nice carrying case and this is a universal charger and there are the outlets here, you can plug in here depending on what where you are from and what outlets you use. I just really like this one because it had the nice carrying case, it doesn’t take up a lot of room, it’s actually very lightweight and very efficient and I thought it was very masculine as well.
And next, this wall mount has a multi-function design, four USB charger ports and three AC outlet plugs and it has a built-in surge protector. For the gentleman who is into his electronics and this is primarily for traveling domestically in the U.S, Mexico or Canada, this is the only plug on here. This is three plugs and four USB ports, I think this was a great find, it’s very lightweight, it’s very easy to use, it’s also very easy to see in a backpack, so you can pull it out and if you’re at the airport you can plug this in and then plug everything else in at once. I thought this was great, I’ve looked at several items but I thought this one was one of the best.
The next item I have is a PORTABLE TRIPOD, the reason I’m not showing you the PORTABLE TRIPOD is because I’m filming on the PORTABLE TRIPOD. It weighs about three pounds and it extends to five feet, it’s fantastic, it has a lever that goes like this, and it has been a lifesaver for all of my filming and all of my selfies. So, if your guy likes to take photographs or take photographs of the two of all, the try PORTABLE TRIPOD is fantastic, and also, it shrinks down to about this size.
The next item, and the final item in the 20 under $20, is a GORILLAPOD, and a GORILLAPOD has a little ball where you can wrap around a tripod they’re only about this big and you can spend 50 or $60 on one but you can also spend under 20. They’re about this big, you put your camera on top and then you wrap, it around a tree or around a pole and it’s a great addition to any of your photography and travel videoing.
