The holiday season is officially in full swing, which means it’s officially time to panic over all the gifts you still have to buy. Have a techy traveler on your shopping list? Get ‘em a gadget they’ll actually use this year.

The Best Tech Gifts for Travelers

Below are some my top picks for tech-savvy flyers. Make sure to comment below if you have other handy gadgets or gift ideas to share.

Beats Solo 3
Every traveler needs a nice pair of headphones. If they have other Apple products I would recommend Beats headphones or Apple Airpods. My top pick would be the Solo 3 headphones. These are great for flying due to their quality sound. They aren’t noise cancelling but they do a pretty good job of blocking enough sound.
Amazon User Review: “LOVE LOVE LOVE!! These are my first pair and they sound good and look good. Happy early birthday to me!!”
Price: Starting at $240 on Amazon

Foxnovo Wi-Fi Smart Plugs
If you know someone who is rarely home, smart plugs could make a great gift. These plugs allow them to turn on their lights remotely, giving the illusion someone is home. They can also use the smart plugs to turn on specific appliances while they are on the go.
Amazon User Review: “Works perfectly. Easy to install. Easy to use.”
Price: Starting at $31 on Amazon

Anker PowerCore 20100mAh
Keeping devices charged is a struggle for any traveler. When it comes to keeping devices juiced, I recommend Anker portable power chargers. This Powercore one is also a great option. It can charge most iPhones at least 5 times, and even charges iPads and other tablets.
Amazon User Review: “Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the battery pack and highly recommend it. It's a great battery backup for those on the go or even at home if you don’t want long recharging cords from power outlet to your desk.”
Price: Starting at $50 on Amazon

Oscaurt Anti-theft Travel Backpack
The Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack’s hidden pockets help dissuade pickpocketers as you explore crowded cities. The bag also includes a USB charging port, night safety feature, and a luggage strap for attaching to a suitcase.
Amazon User Review: “Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the battery pack and highly recommend it. It's a great battery backup for those on the go or even at home if you don’t want long recharging cords from power outlet to your desk.”
Price: Starting at $30 on Amazon

Fitbit Versa Special Edition Smart Watch
For the fitness obsessed traveler who never misses a workout on the go, a smartwatch may be a great option this season. The Fitbit Versa is affordable and easy to setup with Apple or Android smartphones. Count steps, watch calories, and get more out of workouts. The watch also has a heart rate monitor for better accuracy.
Amazon User Review: “Fantastic smart watch that is about 80% of an Apple Watch for less than half the price. If you love the Fitbit community and want a waterproof tracker that adds a ton of smart watch features and has great battery like to boot, this is your Fitbit!”
Price: Starting at $227 on Amazon

GoPro HERO7 Silver
Action cameras are sure to please adventure travelers. The GoPro HERO7 gets high marks for its rugged exterior and waterproof features. Shoot in 4K video and take photos in 10MP. GoPro also offers a ton of accessories to customize cameras to suit whatever your filming.
Amazon User Review: “This is my first GoPro. I own full frame digital SLRs and phones for video so take my review with that in mind. The camera is easy to setup, update and use.”
Price: Starting at $269 on Amazon

Fire HD 8 Tablet
Keep your favorite traveler entertained on the go with the new Fire HD 8 tablet from Amazon. This tablet offers just about every entertainment feature of more expensive tablets like the iPad Mini, and also supports Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa.
Amazon User Review: “I use my Fire HD tablet to read books, listen to audio books and watch TV & movies. I really like how quick & easy it was to get the new tablet up & running. Great sound and picture.”
Price: Starting at $95 on Amazon
