Gift Guide: Top picks for the traveling techie

Dec 02, 2016 by The Go Ahead Tours Team

We all know a traveler who stays organized and connected, even when on the road. They’re always in search of the latest gadgets and supplies that can simplify their travels. Looking for holiday gifts for a traveling techie like this? Finding ideas for them is a breeze with our Gift Guide.

Gift Guide for the traveling techie

1. Cord organizer

The traveling techie most likely brings a slew of devices and chargers with them on tour. This travel organizer is a handy way to keep all kinds of electronics in one, easy-to-access place. Plus, its elastic bands hold cords in place so they don’t get tangled.

2. Portable speaker

There’s no need to sacrifice quality when listening to tunes while traveling. This expandable travel speaker easily charges up with a USB cord and plugs into any smartphone to bring the soundtrack of choice to life.

3. An e-reader

Lightweight and compact, an e-reader is a must for any traveling techie. We recommend the Kindle Paperwhite, which has long-lasting battery life and a built-in light for nighttime reading. (We also suggest loading it up with these travel books.)

4. Noise-canceling headphones

A good pair of noise-canceling headphones can make all the difference during a long flight. Slip-on this comfy pair from Audio-Technica and noises inside the cabin will sound like they’re miles away.

5. Backup charger

This type of traveler never wants to be without power. Gift them a portable charger that can be packed in a carry-on bag for a quick smartphone or camera charge anytime, anywhere.

6. Activity tracker

There’s so much to see and do while out exploring the world. We love keeping tabs on it all with Fitbit activity trackers, which can do everything from counting the number of steps taken to calculating heart rate throughout the day. Pick from the wide range of shapes, size, colors, and capabilities to give your tech-loving traveler a tracker they’ll love.

7. Hard-sided suitcase

Not only do they look sleek and streamlined, but hard-sided suitcases offer great protection for everything that’s inside of them. This Samsonite suitcase is lightweight and easy to roll through airports and train stations while on the go.

8. Sleep set

Even the traveling techie needs to take a break from the screens sometimes. Help them wind down and get some shut-eye during an overnight flight with a sleep set, including an eye mask and comfortable, inflatable travel pillow.

9. Go Ahead gift certificate

Our gift certificates come in any amount and can be put toward any of our 175+ tours around the world. Give our team a call at 1.800.590.1170 if you’re interested in purchasing one this holiday season.
