There are stereotypes that women love bags. Don't be fooled, men love bags just as much. Whether you get him a personalized weekend bag or toiletry bag, he will love getting a bag as a gift. Browse our assortment of personalized men's travel bags below..

A gift he can carry anywhere and serves its good purpose too. A bag for your man will always be a well-appreciated gift, one that he will thank you for every time he uses his bag.  Finding the right bag for him will take more than just what looks great or is trending on shops. You will have to take time to know what activities he has. Is he more of the outdoor adventurous type or one who would rather stay indoors or at the office most of the time. You need to also think of the design and style he would go for. Needless to say, you need to know your man well in order to get the right bag for him. And what more can represent the depth of knowing the recipient of your gift than handing him a bag as a gift.

Here's a simple guide to help you choose the best bag for him: 


You must consider why he will be using his bag. Are you buying it for office, school, sports or travel use? From there you can start streamlining what to buy whether a duffel bag for that weekend travel, a satchel or messenger bag for school or daily use, or a tote bag for the office.  Although bags may be used for different purposes, it is still nice for him to have a particular bag he can use for a distinct purpose.


Design can be an issue in searching for a bag as each design fits certain usability most of the time. The duffel, weekend, over overnight bags are designed either for long weekend bag packing or gym clothes for a workout day. The designs and built of these bags may not necessarily be a perfect fit for formal and professional places. Just the same, the design and look of a briefcase, a tote bag, or even a folio will not fit the gym environment or a weekend getaway on a beach or nature. The compartments and pockets even the way it should be carried, bags’ designs go side by side with function and purpose. Your choice of bag to give will now be narrowed down based on design.


A men’s style may look simple but if you dig in in all its totality, it can sometimes be more complicated than women’s. That mentioned, bags are essential parts of the style so choosing the right one is not merely an embellishment issue but an actual necessity for their fashion. If you are giving a bag to a man who works a blue collar job and whose wardrobe is always formal, you may want to match it with tote, briefcase, or folio bags. A satchel is a dainty match for a professional outfit but if a man is very particular in keeping his ironed shirt free from crumple, you may just want to stick on handheld bags. Recent fashion suggests that even professionals can wear backpacks given that the design still looks formal.


Gone are the days of bags made of sackcloth. Depending on the purpose, design,  and personal style of the wearer, bags are made with different materials. Some are made with leather, vegan leather, cotton canvas, nylon, Cordura, denim, straw, neoprene or synthetic rubbers, or mesh. All these materials serve certain purposes and fit certain designs that may abide by particular styles.

Each has advantages and disadvantages as well. For example, cotton canvas bags are affordable, light, and easy to clean.  However, light-colored cotton canvas bags tend to get dirtier easily. They also wear down faster than other materials. In comparison, leather bags are more durable and will look more refined with age. This material gives any bag a more sophisticated look even with backpacks.  However, leather bags are heavier, more expensive, and require more care and personal treatment to maintain its quality over time.
