Here we've rounded up some of the best travel gadgets around. We're sure that any of the Xmas gift suggestions below will be a sure-fire hit with any business traveller.
Here are our favourite business traveller gifts.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
Think of noise-cancelling headphones and chances are you'll think of Bose. The company's technology range is known the world over for being the crème de la crème in noise-cancellation. The 700 is the latest pair in the company's arsenal, and is hugely comfortable to wear and use. Also perfect for drowning out the office.
Maybe your traveller doesn't like the over-ear style of headphones, though - but is an Apple aficionado. They might find the new AirPods Pro perfect, in that case. They'll still get active noise cancellation for those plane and train rides, with all the benefits of Apple's easy pairing and great audio.
Netflix Gift Card
Being stuck and bored in a hotel room with nothing on the television can be really dull. Get them a Netflix Gift Card and when they travel they can at least watch a stack of movies and TV shows. Better still, when you travel with Netflix you get access to different shows in different parts of the world, allowing you to explore things you might not be watching at home.
Tile Pro luggage tracker
This small luggage tag is so much more than it looks, letting the owner track the location of their bag or keys. Now coming with a replaceable battery, it has a 300ft range, and comes with a built-in siren so you can find your keys, or anything else you've attached it to. An accompanying app offers control and tracking.
Bang and Olufsen Beosound A1 2nd Gen speaker
It might be small, but the B and O BeoPlay A1's big sound makes it standout in the portable Bluetooth speaker market. We may have baulked at its price tag at first, but given how good it sounds, we think it's worth every penny.
iPad Pro 12.9
Laptops are well and good, but for portability and adaptability there's just no beating a tablet. Apple's iPads are some of the slickest on the market, and the iPad Pro's redesign with rounded sides is a wonder to behold. We think this tablet is likely best for most travellers, and makes for the perfect movie-watching, ebook-reading buddy.
Mophie Powerstation XXL External Battery
The Mophie Powerstation Plus XXL battery portable charger offers 20,000mAh of charge is available with a Lightning cable and there are different capacities available if you want something smaller. You'll get 3 USB ports: 2x 2, 1A USB-A output port and 1x 1, 5A USB-A output to charge your gadgets. While this model doesn't offer USB-C support, others in the range do.
QuietOn is an earplug combining active noise cancellation and acoustic noise attenuation without the worry of having to wear big headphones or what music you should be listening to. Whether that's sleeping on a plane or trying to get some work done at the office the only worry you'll have is the person you give them to might not be able to hear you talking to them in the future.
ANRUI Toiletry Bag with Strap
It's not a tech gadget, but if you know someone who travels through airports a lot this is the gift to get them if they don't already have one. Rather than faff around with a silly plastic bag, this keeps their toiletries tidy and professional, while also being incredibly easy to handle at security. We swear by them.
Skross World Travel Adapter MUV USB
If trying to find the ultimate travel adapter for that frequent flyer in your life then you can't go wrong with the Skross World Travel Adapter. Rather than just delivering a way to plug things into work in a foreign country this adapter goes one step further and includes the ability to charge two USB devices, even if another device is connected via the adapter at the same time. It also means they won't have to pack a barrage of other chargers too.
