With Christmas fast approaching, we’ve put together a list of 10 products which are suitable for any tech loving nomad.

Printing photos while traveling has now become incredibly simple with the PoGo mobile printer from Polaroid. Simply connect your camera to the device and relax as each photo prints in under a minute.

Joby Gorillapod Flexible Tripod

While carting around a tripod may not sound ideal, the pocket-sized Joby Gorillapod is small enough for even the most luggage conscience travelers.

Victorinox SwissFlash Alox USB Army Knife

“When will I need a Swiss Army Knife with a built-in USB drive” I hear you ask? Well, probably never. But it would make a damn cool present nonetheless.

Victorinox | Amazon

Flip MinoHD Video Camera

Another product which is pushing the boundaries of portability, this pocket-sized camera will dispel any notion that camcorders are too large to travel with. With a built-in 8 GB memory card, it will shoot two hours worth of stunning footage in high definition.

Flip | Amazon

Offgrid Solar Backpack

Keep your handheld devices charged with this versatile backpack from Voltaic. Also included is a padded laptop sleeve, integrated phone pouch and 1,500 cubic inches worth of storage space.

Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Crying babies, annoying passengers and loud traffic. Block them all out with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones. With a wide range available, a decent pair can be purchased for under a hundred dollars.


Kindle eBook Reader

As an avid reader, I like to carry several books with me when I’m traveling. However, it can become quite tiring carting them around for the whole trip. The Kindle provides a lightweight solution for reading while on the move. At only 10.2 ounces (which is lighter than a typical paperback book) it’s capable of storing up to 1,500 books.


Trackstick GPS Tracker

As the name suggests, it’s a light-weight GPS tracker which records your movements. Simply connect the device to your computer through USB and view your traveled routes using the latest mapping technologies from Google Earth, Microsoft Live, MapQuest or any other similar mapping programs.

MacBook Air

Lightweight netbooks are becoming a popular alternative to their larger and heavier laptop counterparts. If you need a lightweight machine which is still powerful enough to run resource hungry software, a MacBook Air may be a viable option.

Apple | Amazon

Duracell Rechargeable Powerhouse USB

Understandably not the most exciting gift on the list, however this portable charger can be a lifesaver when you need to charge multiple handheld devices at once and you don’t have access to power.

Duracell | Amazon
