Digital nomads rely on their devices, making a portable power bank an essential gift. From experience, you cannot have too many power banks. We LOVE this one because it has the cords connected to the power bank, it really keeps things organized and you aren’t searching through your mess of cords! It also holds 10,000mAh which is enough to charge 2 Phones. They will be delighted on Christmas Morning.
These noise-canceling headphones are a game-changer for digital nomads. They are perfect for listening to music, audiobooks, and drowning out the rest of the world when on the move. These are perfect because they charge quickly and have a 2,200mAh rechargeable case that can be used to charge a phone in an emergency but also keep your headphones charged forever! They sit nicely in the ear while exercising. The case is small and fits easily everywhere. Definitely a must have.
Help your digital nomad maintain an ergonomic work setup while on the go with this laptop stand. When you are working everywhere and anywhere, it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to get comfy to work for the day. The chair and table ratio is never quite right, but this solves that problem. It is small and light weight (2 key things for working while traveling). The metal frame makes it durable. Any digital nomad would love this!
There is a good chance the digital nomad in your life has an adapter of some kind, but this one is special. The plugs are contained in the case and slide out so there aren’t loose connectors everywhere. There are USB A and C ports for charging devices. It adapts all plug forms for almost everywhere in the world. AND IT HAS A BACKUP FUSE INCASE SOMETHING DOESN’T WORK PROPERLY. Trust me, this one adapter takes the place of at least 10 cords/adapters. When weight and space are as critical as they are for digital nomads, this is essentail. We have 2 ourselves.
What better Christmas gift than to invest in your digital nomad’s professional growth with an online course or subscription! Or at least help them for a month or 2 with a subscription they already have. That lets your travelers focus on what they really love to do! They may have subscriptions for web hosting, Adobe Suite, cloud storage, or any number of digital tools to help them stay productive and efficient. If you really want to make an impact, consider giving them a year subscription to Trusted House Sitters to save them cost on their travels!
Do you know how hard it is not to spend all your money on food while traveling? Darn impossible. Especially when you have no way of saving leftovers. Long term travelers would love to have these because they are light weight and pack small! With these, you can bring lunch on a hike or save some chopped veggies for breakfast in the morning. These are a game changer.
A good watch is critical for a traveler. It needs to be rugged, easy to use, easy to read, and have all of the features a traveler would want. This one does! It has options for 3 time zones, 3 alarms, 12h and 24h formatting, and is water resistant up to 200m (660ft). From experience, the vibration alarm feature is top notch! If you are staying in hostels, you don’t have to worry about disturbing others and it is a huge mood booster not listening to a blaring alarm first thing in the morning.
This will sound silly, but the Christmas cliche is that the right socks make all the difference in the world. Regular cotton socks get holes within a couple of weeks due to all the walking. Compression, athletic, moisture-wicking Nylon socks that are machine washable are absolute requirements. The travelers in your life can NEVER have enough of these socks.
