Travelstop celebrated its very first birthday on August 27! 🎉 In light of this occasion, we’ve come up with a list of the best business travel gifts you can get for that beloved business traveller in your life.
Don’t worry, none of this has to do with doing any sort of corporate travel planning for them. We promise.
1. Wireless keyboard ⌨️
A portable Bluetooth keyboard might be the perfect gift for the business traveller who spends most of his or her aeroplane or layover time typing away at emails or reports.
It can be connected to a tablet for maximum portability. Or it can also be used to replace basic laptop keyboards for users that want something more tactile.
If you’re already sold on buying this neat piece of technology, consider getting the Arteck HB030B Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard. Only .24 inches thin, it fits into almost any laptop bag or backpack and additionally offers seven different options in backlighting to optimise its use in low-light conditions.
2. Power bank 🔋
There’s nothing more frustrating for a business traveller than running out of juice in the middle of an important call. To save them the stress and trouble of rushing to the nearest charging port, why not gift them the convenience of extra power in the form of a power bank?
Among the options available, you might want to get your hands on the Anker PowerCore 20100. With that much power, it can charge a phone multiple times at light speed.
3. Packing cubes 👝
With the prices of baggage costing an arm and a leg these days, it’s up to business travellers to pack smart.
Enter the packing cube, the best thing to happen to luggage since they thought of putting wheels on suitcases. Packing cubes not only help store content but also segment them as per the user’s discretion. Maybe not the fanciest birthday present but, undeniably useful.
We recommend the Hyperlite Packing Cube by eBags. At 8 ounces, it’s super-lightweight and comes with a spring-loaded frame that helps it hold shape and compress for convenience in storage.
4. Rolling carry-on luggage 🧳
Speaking of wheels on suitcases, a corporate traveller's most persistent travel buddy is his rolling carry-on luggage. These bad boys offer plenty of storage space and at the same time, fit in overhead compartments. It's the best of both worlds.
This one by Away is stylish, portable, and comes with an ejectable battery to charge your devices.
5. Travel wallets 💼
Visas, passports, foreign currency, a driver's license, notepads, and a scrimmage of other articles are easy to misplace, or worse, lose. Business travellers often travel aboard multiple flights and visit more than a few locations. Help them to not only organise all these essential articles but also store them at an easy to access singular place called the travel wallet.
With a host of pockets, pouches, and card slots, the Zoppen Passport Holder Travel Wallet is a safe bet. Plus, RFID blocking technology prevents your cards from being scanned, offering an extra layer of security and peace of mind.
6. Fire TV Stick 📺
It's been a long day. Back to back meetings and conference calls and a myriad of taxi rides later, a business traveller often finds himself or herself in the confines of a hotel room in the middle of an alien city or town.
What better way to blow off some steam than to stick a tiny device in the hotel television set and access thousands of hours of content via Amazon's very own Fire TV stick? Content from Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, STARZ, SHOWTIME, and CBS All Access at your disposal with the click of a button!
7. Kindle 📖
Business travel isn’t all fun and games. Much of the time is spent, well, travelling! And during those dull moments, nothing passes the time better than a good story.
Gift your loved one a whole library of books and novels housed in a little Kindle to help pass the time on those long-haul flights or traffic jams. Adjustable front lights makes it friendly in all environments. Best of all, the Kindle is currently available at an affordable price of US$ 89.99.
8. Travel steamer 👔
You never get a second chance to make an excellent first impression. Give your business traveller the opportunity to make the best impression with handy travel steamers to perfectly iron out their clothes for any occasion. They’ll be corporate dinner ready in no time.
The OXA Smart 1000W Ultra-Compact Handheld Garment Steamer is renowned for its fast heating. This handy toy is ready to use in 20 seconds flat. You will be gifting your loved one the comfort of ironed clothes and save them time, all at once.
9. Travel fitness kit 🏋️♂️
A fitkit is a great gift for the health buffs out there looking to squeeze in some gym time just before a meeting. It comes with a jump rope, a resistance band, and even tubing with handles that can be attached to the hotel door for pull-ups.
10. Jewellery box 💎
For the business travellers out there who can’t leave the house without the proper accessories, a portable jewellery box might be the answer. Look for one that can carry your loved one’s favourite accessories wherever they go.
Keep a lookout for the Songmics Jewellery Box. It’s got space in there for several rings, watches, bracelets, and other jewellery.
11. Travel pillow 💺
The constant travel can take its toll on our business travellers. Why not make the little time this traveller gets between destinations as comfortable as possible? The right neck pillow could mean those few extra hours of sleep one needs to be rejuvenated and re-energized.
The Travelrest Ultimate Travel Pillow’s unique apostrophe shape makes it a sturdy and comfortable companion for those long-haul travels. It can easily be deflated and stored away so it doesn’t take up too much space in a carry-on.
