Headphones
A comfortable over-ear fit, better passive sound insulation, large lambskin-covered memory foam ear cushions and the option to switch noise cancellation on or off, that’s the Bang & Olufsen’s latest toy, the Beoplay H9 Headphones. Not only incredibly functional in all its assets but also superb in design.

Snapchat Lenses
If you know someone who’s trying to grow his or her business through Snapchat, try finding this unique one-in-a-million-gift. The Spectacles are fun sunglasses, professionally equipped with recording technology that captures 10-second circular videos you can share in Snapchat. A subtle light on the glasses shows friends that you’re recording. Included is a particular case which also functions as a charger. Even though it’s a long shot (the only way to score this Unicorn-gift is through special vending machines called Bots, popping up on various locations in the US), an authentic Snapchat-hero’s travel bag cannot lack these Spectacles. So if you’re based in the US, finding a Bot would be worth it! (Read More)

 

 

 

 

 

Drive Dock
Being a digital nomad and having your office on the road also means you usually don’t have a physical space to store necessary documents or files. Having your whole life and business on one single device can be tricky. Therefore it’s always recommended to keep a couple of external hard drives on hand to back up your files. However, mo’ hard drives, mo’ problems. Either you need to stay very organised and know which files are on which hard drive, or you’ll be plugging and unplugging your external memories repeatedly until you tap into the right files. What if there was a way to avoid all this hustle and you could just swap hard drives like they are floppies? Well, it wouldn’t be almost Christmas if there wasn’t! The OWC Drive Dock is here to make your digital nomad life easier. Compatible with both 3.5-inch ‘desktop’ drives and 2.5-inch ‘laptop’ drives of the SATA variety (virtually all bought in the past decades), the Drive Dock is an ingenious device that can hot-swap between hard drives and even read two simultaneously! Travelpreneur-must-have for $244. (Read More)

 

 

 

 

Professional Motion Pictures
For professional motion pictures, DJI is by far your go-to brand. The company sure knows a thing or two about stabilising a camera. The DJI Osmo+ Camera is a unique piece of art with its upgraded new features including 3.5x optical zoom, advanced stabilisation and a Motion Timelapse mode that pans the camera while shooting. The Osmo+ is a must have for all digital nomads who wish to take their marketing to the next level in 2017, as we’ve entered the area of motion picture marketing! Video will play a significant role in 2017, so make sure you’ve got the right gear for the gig! (Read More)
