If you’re still searching for the perfect gift for the tech-lover on your list, look no further than these innovative, travel-friendly gadgets. From earbuds and headphones that seamlessly stream music and podcasts, high-tech water bottles and wands that kill germs in 60 seconds flat, satellite trackers to keep their mobile assets safe and secure, and more, they’re sure to please any tech-obsessed traveler for under $150.
Ensure that the tech-lover on your gift list will never leave another pair of headphones behind in the back-seat pocket of an airplane with Urbanista’s Miami over-ear headphones in eye-catching Ruby Red or Teal Green.
Featuring sleek and modern Swedish design, up to 50 hours of playtime, active noise cancelling, and comfy cushioned ear pad covers, they pair clear sound with supreme comfort. A sturdy-but-lightweight case will help keep them in prime condition for miles and miles.
Water sources often contain contaminants, and water bottles breed bacteria when they sit uncleaned. But one stylish solution is LARQ, the first-ever self-cleaning water bottle and water purification system.
Travelers can get reliably clean drinking water on the go in just 60 seconds. Simply press a button on the cap to activate UV-C LED lights that eradicate up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from your water and bottle (and, when on “Adventure Mode,” 99.99% of viruses too).
The bottle automatically kicks on to purify water every 2 hours. Plus, it keeps its contents cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12.
JLab’s True Wireless Earbuds have lots of smart features that make listening more seamless.
Frequent travelers will love the Movie Mode, which syncs up the movie-watching experience by reducing audio lag (meaning the dialog will actually match what’s playing out on screen).
Wear Detect Sensors automatically pause music and podcasts whenever the earbuds are taken out of the ears, then restart when replaced.
And with wireless charging, 48+ hours of playtime (12+ hours of Bluetooth playtime in each earbud and 36+ hours from the charging case), and a 2-year warranty, they’re meant to go the distance.
Help your favorite globetrotter healthy wherever they travel with CHI’s portable and compact germ-killer.
Just wave this rechargeable wand over surfaces like airplane tray tables and computer keyboards. Ultraviolet LED lights kill 99.9% of germs within one minute. A battery charge lasts for about 2 weeks with normal use.
Travelers in need of tunes, troubled sleepers looking to block out the sounds of traffic, meditation devotees who want to stream a soothing podcast in bed before sleep, and those who simply find in-ear devices uncomfortable will appreciate the gift of SleepPhones’ super-soft fabric headbands with built-in speakers.
Controls to play, pause, and adjust volume are built-in. When the fabric headband is ready for a wash, just remove the speakers and toss it in the washing machine.
In plush fleece (for anyone who wants to be extra cozy and warm) and breathable, moisture-wicking fabric (for workouts and people who are hot sleepers), the super-slim flat speakers inside mean wearers will get clear sound without sacrificing comfort or a good night’s sleep.
Let’s face it: few people take the time to get their photos printed for frames or albums these days. Which means that all our gorgeous travel pics are just languishing away on our phones and in the cloud.
Help your favorite traveler simplify the process of displaying their photos with Aura’s sleek frames, which are made for the digital age. Simply pair the frame with the app to add and edit photos of favorite people and places, and invite others to add their photos remotely too.
For those who want to keep tabs on their boat, motorcycle, or other valuable mobile assets (or want to make sure that their families can keep tabs on them for safety when they’re off the grid on adventures), it’s worth it to invest in a satellite tracker.
This essential device can send a text or email when movement is detected, and users can monitor their asset’s real-time GPS coordinates via phones or computers. (Note: in addition to the cost of the device, a $20 activation fee and service plans apply.)
