Best gifts for busy roadwarriors
- Tumbler – This RTIC brand tumbler is a recent favorite of our entire sales and account management team. This container is stainless steel and double wall vacuum sealed, keeping your drink extra cold or extra hot for hours on end. In fact, they claim it keeps drinks cold for up to 60 hours or hot for 12 hours. It comes with a clear plastic top with an open slit, but you can also purchase a spill proof top as well. Keep your beloved roadwarrior hydrated while always on the go.
- In-car navigation system – This is definitely the most expensive item on our list, but seems too good to be true. This advanced navigation system creates a ‘heads up’ display, so your driver’s eyes are always on the road. An interactive projection is illuminated onto a small part of the windshield, ensuring the driver has easily accessible navigation. Plus, it manages music, incoming calls and messages, and car information, like gas level and speed. This device provides information to the driver in easy, succinct ways, so they can focus on what’s most important, driving.
- Tile item locator – This inexpensive bluetooth tracker helps locate items that tend to get lost easily, such as car keys, wallet, or jacket. Simply keep the small ‘tile’ attached to the item and virtually connect it to the user’s smartphone. Then, when the item goes missing, simply use the phone to locate. If within 100 feet, a loud song will play. If further, the item can be geo-located by the app. This is perfect for the busy professional who is always on the move and in and out of different hotels. Providing them the gift of peace of mind might be just what they need.
- Car Espresso Maker – An on-the-go espresso maker is perfect for the business traveler looking for an extra caffeine buzz. The device plugs into the cigarette lighter in any car to brew a perfect cup of espresso. Plus, it sits comfortably in the cup holder, to avoid spillage.
- Stereo aux receiver – One of the hardest parts of being a busy traveling professional, is a lack of connectivity when it’s vital. With this cheap stereo aux receiver, it makes any car bluetooth enabled. So your roadwarrior can connect to the music, podcasts, or whatever is important to them.
- Power inverter to charge any device – Another issue with consistently traveling for business is the stress of keeping devices charged. This power inverter solves that problem. It easily plugs into the cigarette holder and charges smartphones, tablets and even laptops. This device could be a real lifesaver for someone always on the go.
- Jewelry organizer – One of the downsides of traveling with jewelry is the inevitable tangle its creates. This easily portable jewelry organizer allows packing jewelry in one container, but individually from each other. With mini internal sections, your business traveler can always look great without the mess to clean up later. The bag is a little bulky but could be perfect for the fashion forward roadwarrior.
- A lock you can use on any door – This is a cheap gift, but perfect for any traveling professional. This small device instantly locks any door with no additional tools. It’s perfect for traveling, at home, apartments, motels, etc. Added security is always appreciated, and this device is small enough to bring along anywhere and easy to install in seconds.
- Night cable – This 10-foot charging cable with a weighted knot is perfect for any busy professional on the go. Hotels often have electrical outlets located behind desks or inconveniently low. The weighted knot on the cable ensures that once the device is unplugged, the cord won’t slip off the desk and fall to the floor. Help your roadwarrior with the burden of annoying cables. Plus, it’s perfect for the office, home or where ever your busy professional needs to work.
