12 best gifts for digital nomads

Presents for globe-trotting online workers

Remote work has exploded over the last few years, but for digital nomads, it’s nothing new. For years, some digital nomads have enjoyed working from hostels, Airbnbs and beachside hammocks, while others travel the globe for other reasons. Remote workers have long taken advantage of flexible arrangements to travel, and more companies plan to offer remote work options for their employees. Ultimately, it seems like the trend of online work is here to stay.

It can be hard to pick a present for a digital nomad. Most need to travel light and can only fit so many possessions into a backpack or suitcase, but there are plenty of products that will help them enjoy their days on the road even more. Here are some suggested gifts for the digital nomads in your life.

Affordable gifts for digital nomads

Sawyer Products Squeeze Water Filtration System: available at Amazon

This ultra-lightweight, packable water filter from Sawyer is a must-have for anyone traveling off the beaten path. It’s smaller than a stick of deodorant, lightweight and more versatile than a traditional water pump. The Sawyer Squeeze is a great way to ensure you can drink clean water as you travel the world.

iVoler Folding Laptop Stand: available at Amazon

There are many benefits of an ergonomic setup, and for people who don’t have access to a sit-stand desk, this folding laptop stand is a great choice. Light, portable and adjustable, this device is the perfect way to pack light without sacrificing a comfortable workstation.

Amazon Basics Packing Cubes: available at Amazon

Any experienced world traveler can always use these packing cubes. Packing cubes help you keep your backpack or suitcase organized. They also lessen wrinkles in clothing and separate your dirty laundry from clean clothes. This Amazon Basics set is affordable and comes with a mesh top panel for ventilation and visibility.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
