More people than ever are working remotely nowadays, so be sure to get them something they actually want and need with these super useful gifts for digital nomads.
There's no doubt about it, the internet is changing the way we work and do business.
And this has spawned a growing tribe of location independent freelancers working remotely via their laptops.
So gone are the days where you are tied to one place permanently because of your job, having to commute into the same office each day.
Because anywhere with a good WiFi connection can become your office nowadays.
And this is a great thing.
As it has freed up so many people to be able to explore the world while still earning a living or building a business.
It's the kind of lifestyle that people could only dream about just a few years ago.
But while this new age has given people freedom to move around and live and work where they choose.
It can make them really hard people to buy gifts for.
Because as they are carrying their lives around with them, space in their luggage is always at a premium.
So you'll find most digital nomads become very minimalist by nature.
With every item that they carry around with them needing to earn it's place in their backpacks and suitcases.
Which means if you're going to get them a physical gift then you need to follow these two golden rules:
And with that in mind we've come up with a list of gifts that every digital nomad would love to have.
As they are all super useful and won't weigh them down as they make their way around the world.
So whether you want to buy a gift for a digital nomad just starting out.
Or a gift for a seasoned nomad that has been on the road for years already.
You'll find what you're looking for here.
Gifts To Help Digital Nomads With Their Work
While travelling around the world and living in different countries can be a fantastic experience, you still need to make sure that the work doesn't take a back seat.
Because making a living and covering your costs is vital if you're going to make the digital nomad lifestyle work.
And to do this you need to have plenty of willpower and inner drive to really push on and grind when there are so many other things you'd rather be doing.
Plus working out of different locations all the time also brings with it obstacles that you need to overcome.
So this section is all about gifts that will improve a digital nomad's working experience.
And give them the best chance of staying on track.
A mobile hotspot
If there's one thing a digital nomad needs above all other things it's a solid, reliable, high-speed WiFi connection.
As you need to be able to work quickly and efficiently while staying connected at all times.
And this is even more important if you need to conduct business meetings or teach english over a Skype connection.
However while this is easy to achieve in your apartment, many nomads prefer to work out of coffee shops.
And the WiFi in these can prove a bit sketchy to say the least.
So a great gift to get for any digital nomad is a mobile hotspot, like the Verizon Jetpack.
This way they can carry a reliable WiFi connection around with them and not be relying on anyone else.
As simply inserting a local sim card into the mobile hotspot will allow you to use the data on it in any country you visit.
So it's perfect for avoiding those days where you end up pulling your hair out as the internet goes down in your favourite coffee shop for the umpteenth time.
A WiFi range extender
Another problem can be when the WiFi modem in your apartment is too far away from your room or workstation.
Which can cause it to run slowly, cut out frequently, and just be a royal pain in the backside.
But this is easy to solve right? Just move it closer.
Unfortunately if you are living with other people or renting a private room in a house, this may not be an option.
So what you need is a WiFi range extender like the one above from NETGEAR.
Because by plugging one of these into a socket in your room you can eliminate all of these problems.
As it will send a stronger WiFi signal to the surrounding areas where it's plugged in, extending the range of your router.
While also increasing speeds and reducing interference.
So one of these WiFi extenders makes a great gift for any digital nomad that complains about the quality of their WiFi at home.
A portable power bank
Another constant battle that every digital nomad will be all too familiar with will be the one between their working hours and the battery life on their phones and laptops.
As this can be so frustrating.
Because just as you get into a great work flow, you get that flashing red light of doom that tells you your device is about to die.
And while this isn't a problem if you have a power outlet nearby.
If you are working on a plane, train or somewhere outside it can really disrupt your day.
So a great gift to get a digital nomad is a portable power bank that can charge their devices as they are using them, like this one from RAVPower.
As it comes with 3 USB ports so you can run or charge different devices simultaneously.
And it's small and compact, so easy to carry around with you in your bag or pocket.
The ideal gift to stop a digital nomad getting cut off in the middle of the work day.
A laptop stand
The vast majority of digital nomads work from a laptop.
Which kind of makes sense, as you can't be dragging a desktop computer around with you to coffee shops and from city to city.
However this can open them up to some health problems if they're not careful.
As when working on a laptop it's impossible to keep the screen at eye height.
Which means you constantly have to look down at the screen, putting a strain on your neck and shoulders.
And before you know it, you end up up with pain in your back, neck and shoulders after a long day of grinding away.
So a really essential piece of kit for any digital nomad is a laptop stand, such as the Roost stand.
As it raises the screen to your eye level, meaning you can look straight ahead at it rather than down.
And this keeps your neck and spine in alignment, meaning you can maintain a healthier sitting posture.
Which eases any pressure on your body and keeps you healthier as you work.
However you'll also need to use a separate keyboard and mouse if you use a laptop stand.
So if your digital nomad uses a Macbook (as so many do) then the ones below will work great.
However if they use a windows based laptop then you will need to get a different wireless keyboard and mouse that is compatible with that instead.
But getting your nomad all 3 items together makes for a nice little gift package.
And you get the added bonus of knowing you are doing something to help improve their health with these gifts too.
An external hard drive
When you are working on the road you will be storing lots of important files and information on your laptop.
And this can cause you a problem in two ways.
As firstly it can fill up your laptop's memory and cause it to run slower than usual.
And secondly, if you lose your laptop you will be well and truly screwed.
So a good solution that makes a useful gift for a digital nomad is to get them an external hard drive like the La Cie Porsche.
As this will allow them to have back-up copies of their most important files in case of any laptop thefts, damage or losses.
And it will free up memory space so they can work that bit faster too.
Another essential piece of kit for any digital nomad.
Noise cancelling headphones
One good thing about working in a traditional office environment is that it's set up for working.
Which means noise and distractions are kept to a minimum, allowing you to get on with what you need to do.
However the working life of a digital nomad is often a lot different to this.
As when working from coffee shops or on the move on planes, trains or buses, you are surrounded by a cacophony of noise, movement, and action.
Which can make it really hard to concentrate and focus on your work.
So in my opinion a vital piece of kit for every digital nomad are a pair of noise cancelling headphones, with a popular choice being the bluetooth enabled Bose QC35 headphones.
As this way you can slip them over your ears (or plug them in if you prefer earbud type headphones) and all the noise and distractions will immediately disappear.
Allowing you to work in peace in even the noisiest and busiest of environments.
And these also have the added advantage of drowning out noise when you take public transport (another must in my opinion!).
As well as providing great sound quality when you use them for their actual purpose, which is to listen to music and movies/tv shows.
A productivity planner
Having the freedom to work online without a boss looking over your shoulder or strict working hours to keep can be a real blessing.
However it also takes a lot of self discipline.
Because as you have no-one to answer to, it is up to you and you alone to make sure you put the hours in and get the work done every day.
And when you are living in exciting and exotic places this can be challenging.
As you will want to be outside exploring and having fun rather than stuck inside on your laptop.
But it's absolutely vital that you keep yourself in a good work routine if you are going to make a success of life as a digital nomad.
And a gift you can buy someone to keep them honest in that respect is this productivity planner.
As this will help them stay on track and stop them from procrastinating.
Based on scientific research into what makes people productive, it allows them to add weekly goals and make those goals easy to track.
Plus using one has been found to increase focus and productivity when used daily.
So a productivity planner is a great gift to give to any digital nomad that struggles to stay on top of the work/life balance.
A months membership to their favourite coworking space
Check out this video to get an idea of what coworking is all about.
Being a digital nomad can feel like a lonely furrow at times.
And while the freedom is great, some people miss the social buzz of working in an office full of people.
Coffee shops can fill the void a little.
But you are always surrounded by noisy distractions in them.
And relying on shaky WiFi while working on chairs and tables that are not suited to sitting in for hours at a time.
Not to mention the evil glares of the coffee shop staff as you nurse your one Americano for 4 hours.
So a great alternative is to use a coworking space instead.
As these have been especially created to cater for freelancers and digital nomads.
And as such you will be surrounded by like-minded people that can inspire and motivate you to go further with your business.
Not to mention being able to work in a place with rock solid WiFi, ergonomic chairs to keep you healthy, and free flow coffee.
So if you know a digital nomad that loves to work out of coworking spaces, a nice gift idea is to pay for a months use of their current one.
This will usually set you back about $200 but your nomad will love it as it will free up some cash for them to spend on fun things instead.
Plus it'll feel like they are using the facilities for free for a month, and we all love a freebie right?
Online courses to improve their skills
There are so many ways you can earn money online these days as a freelancer.
Web development, graphic design, coding, videography, programming, creating apps, vlogging, blogging, affiliate marketing ... the list goes on and on.
But one thing rings true in each of these fields.
And that is that the landscape is constantly changing.
Which means a digital nomad always needs to be learning and improving their skills to stay ahead of the game.
And one way they do this is by developing new skills via online courses.
Because the more skills you have and the more strings there are to your bow, the more opportunities you will have to earn money.
So if you know a digital nomad who wants to learn some new skills, how about buying them the online course of their choice as a gift?
This way they get to further themselves and you get a good feeling knowing you are helping them on their way.
And a good place to start is Udemy.
As they have thousands of courses that are perfect for digital nomads.
Gifts To Help Digital Nomads Stay Organised While On The Move
Having to pack up all your worldly belongings and move on to the next place every few weeks or months can take it's toll on even the most patient of digital nomads.
And it can be all too easy to lose or misplace stuff along the way.
Or get frustrated when you can't find what you need when you need it.
So this section will cover gifts that can keep a digital nomad organised and in control, no matter how often they move around.
A new backpack
As a digital nomad you will always be carrying a bag.
Whether that is when travelling or just to carry your laptop around with you during the day.
And as these bags get used so often they can take a bit of a hammering.
Which makes a new backpack a great gift idea for digital nomads.
And a great one for everyday use is the Timbuk2 Vert backpack.
Because this one looks great and is small enough to carry around comfortably, but still big enough to fit all your gear into.
And it is great for organising your stuff too.
As it has a padded compartment for your laptop, as well as internal pockets where you can keep your pens and smartphone.
Plus there are also side pockets where you can keep a water bottle or other small items for convenience.
However if you want to get someone the ideal backpack for when they are travelling from destination to destination, then the Osprey Farpoint 40 is the one to go for.
In fact, this backpack is legendary within the digital nomad community and for good reason.
Because it's the perfect backpack to use as a carry on for planes.
As it's the perfect size, is comfortable to carry with it's padded straps, and is lightweight.
Meaning you can pack more stuff in without going over airline weight restrictions.
Plus it's really easy to pack, as you can open it out flat like a regular suitcase.
So this one will be a winner with any digital nomad or seasoned traveller.
And finally, if you are looking for a travel backpack that is more focused on security, check out the Pacsafe Metrosafe anti theft backpack.
This one is a great bag in it's own right, with 25L of capacity and a padded laptop sleeve that can hold laptops up to 15".
But it's the security features that set it apart.
As there is a stainless steel wire mesh woven into the fabric which makes it slash proof.
And the zippers lock at the top, meaning they stay out of reach from any potential pickpockets.
There is even an RFID blocking pocket to protect your passport from being illegally scanned.
So if you want to help a digital nomad keep their things and identity safe and secure on the move, one of these backpacks will do the trick.
An electronic cable organiser
As the name suggests, digital nomads are a tribe that love and rely heavily on technology and gadgets.
So laptops, tablets, cameras, microphones, drones, hard drives, and all sorts of other devices are all likely to be found in the average nomads back pack.
However having all these gadgets creates a new and frustrating problem.
Which is you end up with a ton of different cables and chargers to carry around too.
And these can be a real pain.
As they get tangled up, lost, left behind, or buried at the bottom of your bag when you really need them.
So a great gift to help a nomad avoid cable fury is to get them an electronic cable organiser like the one from Bagsmart below.
This way they can store all their cables in one place, with each having it's own pocket or compartment.
So they'll never lose a cable again..
And they'll be able to find what they need quickly and without having to contribute to the swear jar too.
Space inside a digital nomad's luggage is like gold dust.
With every spare inch being taken up by an essential item.
However one good way of squeezing more stuff in is to use a set of packing cubes, such as these AmazonBasics ones.
As they will compress the contents of your luggage down.
And they also make it much easier to organise the contents of your suitcase.
So you'll know where everything is without having to root around and mess everything up.
Plus the mesh lining allows you to see what's inside too, making finding stuff even easier.
So these are an essential piece of kit for anyone that spends a lot of time travelling around.
Making them an ideal gift to buy for a digital nomad.
A laptop sleeve
Your laptop is the main tool of your trade as a digital nomad, so you need to take care of it.
And one way to do that is by using a protective laptop sleeve, such as this one from Tomtoc 360.
As these sleeves are padded, splash proof, and bump proof.
Meaning you can keep your laptop protected as you carry it around each day to coffee shops, coworking spaces, or when travelling on buses, trains and planes.
So if your nomad is a bit accident prone or careless with their gear, one of these protective laptop sleeves will make a nice gift for them.
And could save them a fortune in having to replace a laptop prematurely.
A passport holder with a phone charger
Another thing that you'll use a lot and want to keep protected as a digital nomad is your passport.
So a good idea for a gift is to get a nomad is an attractive passport holder.
And this one from Lovie Style is extra special.
As not only does it look cool, coming in a range of colours with different travel quotes on the front.
It also comes with a slim power bank that slips inside an inside pocket of the passport holder.
And this allows you to charge your smartphone if you run low on battery in the airport or on the plane.
Which is such a great idea.
And this wallet also has RFID blocking protection.
So no-one can illegally scan your details, meaning your identity stays safe.
An all round useful gift for any digital nomad or frequent traveller.
Gifts To Keep Digital Nomads Entertained
Life as a digital nomad isn't all work, work, work.
So how about getting them a gift that will help them to enjoy their downtime instead?
The following gifts will all do that.
And they'll also come in handy for making the hours pass by faster on long travel days too.
A Kindle Paperwhite
If you know a digital nomad that loves to read, then you may think buying them a few books would make the ideal gift.
However as I mentioned previously, space is at a premium in a nomad's suitcase.
And this makes carrying around a bunch of physical books both impractical and unwise.
So why not treat them to a Kindle Paperwhite instead?
As this is something lightweight that takes up next to no room at all.
And they can load it up with as many books as they like!
Personally I find one of these a godsend for travelling.
And if you want to make it an even more digital nomad focused gift, you could preload it with a few books that they'd be interested in.
One example would be the 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss which is one of the books that started the whole digital nomad revolution.
Or you could get them Vagabonding by Rolf Potts, which is full of tips and advice on how to travel long-term and live life on the road.
And how to get back into 'normal' life if your nomad journey comes to an end.
Or if you know an aspiring digital nomad, or one just starting out, then this book by full-time digital nomads Daneger and Stacey is a great choice.
As it's full of practical tips and advice on how to survive and enjoy the digital nomad lifestyle.
With detailed guides on the top digital nomad hotspots around the world.
And the good thing about this book is that the information is completely up to date and relevant for today.
However if you'd rather let them choose their own books, you could get them an Amazon Kindle gift card instead.
A Nintendo Switch
Another great way to pass the time on planes, trains and buses is to play some video games.
And one of the most popular options for digital nomads is the Nintendo Switch.
As not only can you use it as a handheld games console to play on the move.
You can also plug it into the TV in your apartment and play video games on the big screen.
So it's perfect for any gamers that haven't got room in their cases for a Playstation or an Xbox.
And you can even play it with a friend while travelling as it can be split up so it becomes one screen and two separate controllers.
So it makes a really great addition to any nomad travel day.
And a gift that they'd be truly excited to receive.
A portable speaker
Another essential gadget for life on the road is a portable speaker.
As you'll want one to to play your music on, rather than listening with headphones all the time.
And they are great for bringing movies or Netflix to life when watching on your laptop.
Plus they are great for days by the pool or on the beach with friends to get some music playing as you relax and enjoy yourself.
And a portable speaker that is ideal for nomads is the JBL Flip 4.
As this one is small and light enough to slip easily inside your backpack or day bag.
And it connects to your laptop or smartphone wirelessly via bluetooth, so no wires or need to plug it in.
Plus you get up to 12 hours of playback with each full charge, so it won't give out on you in the middle of a party!
A quality camera
As a digital nomad that can choose to live anywhere in the world, your life will be filled with stunning places, new people, and breathtaking experiences.
And you'll want to capture all of these wonderful memories by taking plenty of photos along the way.
So if you want to splurge and really treat a digital nomad, think about buying them a great camera as a gift.
As this way they can take professional looking photos and videos that will truly capture the beauty of the places they visit.
And a real favourite among nomads, bloggers, and vloggers is the Canon Powershot G7X Mark II digital camera.
As this camera comes packed full of fantastic features that will have even amateur photographers taking amazing shots straight off the bat.
And it also shoots 1080p full HD video allowing you to capture the moment perfectly to share with your friends and family back home.
So it's a really great piece of kit that any digital nomad would treasure.
Another option for the more adventure minded nomads would be the GoPro Hero 6 digital action camera.
As this camera allows them to take some truly stunning action shots and video.
Because it's sturdy, waterproof and made for fun and adventure.
So you can strap it to your helmet when doing extreme sports, to your snowboard on the slopes, or onto your surfboard when riding the waves.
And it'll really capture the whole buzz and adrenaline rush for you to enjoy again once you get home.
However if your digital nomad already has a great camera, you could consider getting them a tripod for it instead, such as the Joby Gorillapod SLR Zoom.
Because using a tripod will allow them to set up shots that look fantastic as well as keeping their videos steady and professional looking.
And the Gorillapod tripods are great, as you can adjust the flexible legs to create a steady stand for your camera on any surface, no matter how uneven it is.
They even have rubberised feet so they can grip well on slippery surfaces too.
And you can also use them as a handheld tripod if you want to shoot steadier video on the move.
So any digital nomad that loves to take photos or videos will also love to have one of these.
A Netflix or Spotify subscription
Now I'm pretty certain that most digital nomads will already have either or both these.
As they will then have an almost endless supply of movies, binge-worthy TV shows, and music to go through.
So being bored is no longer an option!
And the good thing is you can use both of these on your smartphone too.
Which means they are great for keeping you entertained on long journeys.
So if you find the one digital nomad out of a hundred that doesn't already have Netflix or Spotify, gift them a subscription and introduce them to the 21st century!
Useful Gifts That Digital Nomads Will Appreciate
This section contains a few handy items that every digital nomad will get plenty of use out of.
And they may be things they don't even realise that they need.
Which make them great gifts to give and receive.
A new pair of sunglasses
The whole point of the digital nomad lifestyle is to have the freedom to choose where you want to live and work.
And more often than not people are going to follow the sun around when they get this choice.
So digital nomads will always appreciate a nice pair of sunglasses as a gift.
And these are not only good as fashion statements or for keeping the glare out of their eyes.
They can also protect their eyes from damage from the strong UV rays that you find in tropical climates.
So when picking out a pair of sunglasses as a gift, make sure they have the following:
This way you can help a digital nomad to keep their eyes healthy and look great at the same time.
Now it can be difficult to know which type and style of sunglasses to go for as you have so many different ones to choose from.
So it may be an idea to ask them which kind they prefer before taking the plunge.
But a classic style that never goes out of fashion are the Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses.
So if you're not sure, then a pair of these will normally be a safe choice.
And to give you an idea we've included the Chromance Lens for men and the Brush Bronze for women as examples above.
A travel plug and adapter
A must for any digital nomad that is travelling through different countries and continents is a good travel plug adapter.
So one such as the one from Saunorch makes for a really useful stocking filler.
As it has four different wall plug options covering all the major destinations and can be used in over 150 countries around the world.
Plus it has 4 USB ports, so they can charge their many different devices simultaneously.
And it'll also automatically adjust it's current depending on which device you are using or charging.
So it's safer and more energy efficient to use, and you get a faster charging time.
Which all makes this international travel plug adapter a really great addition to any digital nomad's backpack.
A sleeping mask and ear plugs
Getting a good night's sleep on a regular basis is vital for keeping our minds sharp and our bodies healthy.
However when you are traveling around as a digital nomad, sleep can sometimes prove elusive.
Because you can never guarantee you'll have a quiet and dark sleep environment to lay your head each night.
For instance the AirBnB you've booked for a month may have bright street lights shining through your bedroom window all night.
Or be above a noisy bar with music pumping out until the early hours.
And all these disturbances with your sleep are not just bad for your health.
They can also lead to your work suffering as a result.
So a really thoughtful gift for digital nomads is a sleeping mask and some ear plugs.
As this way they can black out bedrooms that are too bright.
While also drowning out street noise that may wake them up throughout the night.
And as an added bonus, both the sleeping mask and ear plugs work well on long plane journeys too.
Allowing a digital nomad to get some shut eye on the flight and arrive at their destination refreshed, energised, and ready to get straight into it.
So treat a digital nomad to the gift of a good night's sleep with these lifesavers!
A travel neck pillow
Another gift that can make the travelling experience a whole lot more pleasant for digital nomads is a neck pillow.
Because how many times have you got off a long-haul flight with your neck and shoulders aching like hell?
Or struggled to get any sleep because your neck was hanging painfully to the side or constantly falling down and waking you like a nodding dog?!
So getting them a comfortable neck pillow can really help them to relax, get some sleep, and make travel days a lot easier.
And a great one to get them is the BCozzy chin supporting neck pillow.
As this one is super comfortable, lightweight, and clips easily onto your backpack.
And it's quite unique as you can twist and adjust it into multiple positions.
So you can wear it like a traditional neck pillow that will support your neck as you sit in your seat.
Or you can stack the two ends at the front to create a pillow that holds your chin up and stops nodding dog syndrome.
And you can also fold it back on itself to create a side neck cushion if you want to lean against the airplane window to get some sleep.
So it makes an ideal gift for digital nomads that take regular plane, train, or bus journeys.
Hanging luggage scales
Another bane of a digital nomads life are airline weight restrictions.
Because each airline seems to have different rules on weights and sizes of luggage that you're allowed to carry on or stow.
And if you don't read the small print and turn up with overweight luggage it can be a very expensive mistake to rectify.
So help a digital nomad avoid these extra costs and headaches by buying them the gift of some hanging luggage scales like the ones above from Tarriss.
This way they can always stay one step ahead and make sure that their luggage is the right weight while packing.
And arrive at the airport safe in the knowledge that the money in their pocket can go on some beers and pizza at their destination, rather than into the pockets of an airline fat cat.
Gifts For Digital Nomads That Will Surprise And Delight Them
This section is all about thoughtful gifts that a digital nomad won't expect to receive, but will absolutely adore.
So not only will they get a nice surprise with each of these.
You'll also get bonus brownie points for thinking outside the box and getting them something memorable.
An AirBnB gift card
Travelling to new cities or countries every month or two can make it hard to find suitable accommodation.
As lots of landlords will insist on a minimum 6-12 month lease period before they'll let you rent out their apartment.
So a lot of digital nomads rely on AirBnB to secure monthly or short-term accommodation.
As while it's a bit more expensive, it's also far more flexible, allowing you to rent for as long or as short a time as you like.
And they are super convenient too.
As the apartments come fully furnished, have WiFi already set up, and factor the utility bills into the overall rental price.
So you have nothing to worry about and can get straight down to work as soon as you move in.
And for this reason an AirBnB gift card is a gift that will always go down well with any digital nomad.
As they can use it to either save some money the next time they book an apartment.
Or use it to pay that bit extra for an even nicer place.
Either way it's a winner.
A tour or adventure experience in their current destination
The things we do and experience in life last longer in the heart and memory than the things we own.
Which makes giving someone the gift of a great experience or adventure an attractive alternative to getting them a physical gift.
As this way they get to enjoy a really fun and exciting day out doing something they probably wouldn't have thought of buying for themselves.
And you can take advantage of their current location to treat them to an experience or tour that is unique to the place they're in.
This could include:
In fact the list of options is almost endless.
As there are really cool things to do everywhere.
So help your digital nomad have fun on their day off by treating them to the experience of a lifetime.
As it will be a gift they certainly won't forget about it in a hurry.
A night in a fancy hotel
When you are living as a digital nomad you have to keep a close eye on your costs and expenses.
Because freelance work is totally different to the security of receiving a regular paycheck.
As even when things seem to be going well, your income could dry up at any moment.
Which means you always have to keep some money aside for a rainy day to tide you over if the bad times hit.
So for this reason most digital nomads become very good at living minimally and not overspending on things.
And they are loathe to splurge on any 'luxuries', preferring to spend their money wisely on the essentials instead.
So why not splurge for them?
As treating them to a spot of luxury that they'd enjoy but would never dream of buying for themselves makes the perfect gift.
And one way you can do that is by booking them into a nice hotel for the night with all the trimmings wherever they happen to be.
This way they can kick their feet up and relax, order some room service, and enjoy the 5 star facilities without any of the guilt.
And take a day off from frugal nomad living.
A day at a local spa
Another luxury that digital nomads may not feel right about treating themselves to is a day at a health spa.
But this is a mistake, as it can really help them with their work.
Because it gives them a much needed break from their laptops, as well as some rest and relaxation to freshen them up for future challenges.
Plus the massages, saunas, jacuzzis and treatments will all work their magic and leave them feeling refreshed and rejuvenated afterwards.
So help your digital nomad to relax and take some downtime by gifting them a day at a nice spa in their location.
They will love you for it!
Priority pass airport lounge access
As a digital nomad you will take plenty of flights each year.
In fact you are likely to become an expert on the good and bad points of so many airports in so many different countries!
However the hassle of travelling can really get you down and kill the vibe if you're not careful.
As you get sick of being herded like cattle through security, having to wait in overcrowded departure lounges, and paying over the odds for crappy food and drinks.
However there is a gift you can give a digital nomad that can greatly improve their travelling experience.
And that is by getting them a Priority Pass membership.
This will give them access to over 1,200 airport lounges across the globe where they can escape the hustle and bustle of the crowds and relax before their flights.
As these lounges have super comfy chairs, free food and drinks, great WiFi if you want to get some work done, and plenty of space.
Not to mention peace and quiet.
So this is a great gift for any digital nomad that is constantly on the move.
As it will take the stress out of the travel experience and mean they arrive fresh and ready to go, rather than tired, frustrated and angry.
A donation to a charity of their choice
Travelling really does open your eyes to many things.
Giving you a fresh perspective on life and a more balanced view of the world.
And as such, many long-time travellers and nomads become very socially aware of the world's problems and inequalities.
Especially when travelling and living in third world countries.
Which makes them keen to help in any way they can, either by volunteering their time or by donating to a cause they're passionate about.
So rather than buying your digital nomad a gift for themselves, why not offer to make a donation to a charity of their choice instead?
They will love this idea and at the same time you will be doing some good for people in need too.
A real win-win situation.
A plane ticket to fly home for the holidays
On the whole the life of a digital nomad is a pretty amazing one.
As you get to see and experience the world, meeting new people every day, and live in some truly spectacular places.
However that doesn't mean you never get homesick.
Because there are times when you really miss your friends and family and wish you could spend some time with them.
And this is never more true than during the holidays.
So a great surprise gift for any digital nomad would be to buy them a plane ticket to fly home to spend the holiday season with their family.
This is something that most nomads would truly love to do, but don't as the prices are through the roof at this time of year and they can't afford to do so.
Which makes it an awesome gift to give.
Both for them and for you too.
Life on the road as a digital nomad is fantastic.
But buying a gift for one is difficult because they have to carry their whole world around with them as they travel.
So you need to make sure any gift you buy is something that won't take up too much space and is something they will use all the time.
This can be a gift to help with their work, keep them organised, entertain them during their downtime, or simply something they'll find useful to have around.
Or it could be a tour or experience that will help them make the most of their current destination.
Whatever you choose, we hope you've found some good ideas and inspiration in this post of gift ideas for digital nomads.
As these gifts will be sure to put a smile on their faces.
