Men of all ages will most definitely love our stocking stuffer underwear ideas. Check out our top picks and let us know which one is your favorite?
Hipstripes Boxer Brief ($30)
Positioned as a gift, these boxer briefs add an element of surprise with the unfolding of each of the package’s four flaps. The front flap sports the brand’s bold black and yellow stripes; the interior flaps read “caution,” then “go slow” — playfully teasing the gift recipient. “It’s almost like origami when you unwrap the box,” Jean Fox, co-founder of Hipstripes, told The Underwear Expert. Made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex, the boxer briefs show off flirty messages on the waistband. S-XL.
Ken Wroy Trunks ($26)
The New York City-based brand packages its range of low- and mid-rise trunks in a square-shaped box with a view of the Manhattan skyline. Made from 95% cotton and 5% elastane, the brand’s Clowning Around and Feeling Sexy trunks provide playful prints and bold colors. S-L.
Jac5’s SuperSmart ($32-$38), Barking Mad ($29-$38)
As opposed to traditional cardboard boxes, these two collections come in a stylish, re-usable zip pouch made of nylon and showcases the brand’s five-legged dog logo–inspired by the founder’s five Jack Russell dogs. The two collections boast bold colors and striking prints. For ultimate comfort, Barking Mad is made from either 100% cotton or a premium stretch cotton blend while SuperSmart is made from either modal or nylon. S-XL.
Papi Sexy collection ($24-$26)
The perfect gift for Christmas or even Valentine’s Day, this range of low-rise briefs, Euro trunks, Brazilian trunks and boxer briefs come in a red or black box that showcases a glossy finish that screams sexy. The collection, which also comes in red or black, is made from 83% cotton and 17% spandex. The Sexy collection features the brand’s first Pouch Enhancer. S-XL.
Pact’s Handprinted Stars Boxer Brief ($24)
Ideal for the tree hugging man in your life, Pact offers packaging for all of its men’s underwear ranges on paper made from FSC-controlled wood in a factory powered by wind energy and printed with vegetable-based inks. These boxer briefs are inspired by the heritage of stars as a symbol of American pride and made from 95% organic cotton and 5% elastane. M-XL.
