If you have a digital nomad in your life, it can be hard to find a gift for them. Most of us travel light, and therefore probably don’t need a lot of things that you might traditionally buy someone for Christmas, their birthday, or other occasions.
No worries, though! I’ve got you. Here is a list of things that will be appreciated by many digital nomads!
This device allows you to set up a hotspot anywhere you are traveling around the globe. Digital nomads can sometimes end up in areas with less-than-usable wifi signals, so this device is a good insurance piece to carry with you.
You can purchase a variety of wifi plans by the gig or by the month to use your device when you need it, but not have to be paying a monthly fee when you don’t.
This low-tech way to make a cup of coffee is uber convenient for those who are traveling light. It’s easy to pack, and brews coffee straight into your favorite mug.
All you need is a way to heat the water!
This compact device is a tool that can do so many things for you, should you — heaven forbid — find yourself stranded. It make a great gift for those digital nomads who travel with a vehicle!
The Halo Bolt can jump start your car, but in addition, it can work as an air compressor to inflate a low tire, work as a floodlight if you’re stuck somewhere in the dark, and charge your phone or other electronic devices.
If there’s one thing those of us who travel light need, it’s more ways to organize our stuff compactly. I have recently fallen in love with these grid organizers!
They are designed to store all kinds of small items and hold them securely. No more rummaging around in the bottom of your backpack or duffel bag!
While I know that many times you want to buy something more personal, digital nomads are generally going to appreciate gift cards! Whether it is to a restaurant or coffee shop you know they love, or a subscription to an app you know they use, gift cards will almost certainly be put to good use.
Here are some suggestions for gift cards digital nomads might appreciate:
- GrubHub or other meal delivery services
- A Spotify annual subscription
- Airbnb gift cards
- Gift cards to restaurants or coffee shops with Internet that are friendly to remote workers, such as Panera Bread or Starbucks
- Amazon gift cards — even those of us who move around use Amazon lockers to receive package delivered
Digital nomads enjoy pampering, too! Something in a smaller size that is more indulgent that they might buy for themselves — like this Caudalie Paris Hand Cream and Lip Balm set — will not take up too much room and will be appreciated.
Many full-time travelers are always on the hunt for the next best travel gadget, and these nifty skins are a contender!
LeakLocks stretch out to form a silicone skin over your toiletry bottles — stopping leaks.
Roost Laptop Stands are a coveted item among digital nomads. They come with a heftier price tag than many laptop stands, but are so lightweight and portable.
The ability to easily set up a workstation on the road is invaluable, and this laptop stand will help just about anyone with that!
