Hey! Looks like you missed Cyber Monday by a bit, but if you’re looking for some last minute holiday gifts for your fave traveler (or feeling a little self-indulgent 😉 ) check out my top picks:
Let’s be honest: digital nomads and frequent travelers are certainly not the easiest people on your list to shop for. You might think that just about any travel-related gift is gonna fly, but the main issue is that most digital nomads try to keep their personal belongings to a bare-minimum.
It’s probably safe to assume that if they haven’t specifically mentioned needing a bulky new travel journal or super-sized passport holder with 50 pockets and a picture of the Eiffel Tower on the front, there’s a good chance those gifts aren’t gonna make the cut when they pack their suitcase for their next destination.
Just because digital nomads are a tricky breed to buy gifts for, doesn’t necessarily mean cash is the only answer. Here are our top 7 Cyber Monday deals for travelers and digital nomads from around the web:
Think free accommodation in the French countryside (or Thailand, Costa Rica, the UK, you name it…) complete with free WiFi and daily doses of dog cuddles — Does a better holiday gift even exist?!
This is one of the coolest ways to cut travel expenses for your digital nomad. Membership to TrustedHouseSitters.com gives you access to 1000’s of homeowners all over the globe who are looking for someone to temporarily care for their home and pets while they’re away.
Use the code BLACKFRIDAY30 for 30% off their membership plans (today is the last day!)
This is a perfect & affordable gift for a wanna-be digital nomad. BlueHost is one of the most popular website hosts out there (I personally use them for all of my sites & their tech support rocks!), and their CyberMonday sale can’t be beat: over 50% off monthly hosting packages with a free domain included.
This is a serious steal but it ends at midnight so don’t hesitate too long.
Envato is offering a super-bundle for CyberMonday which includes basically everything a creative digital nomad could want. It’s packed with logo mock-ups, vintage icons for websites, world map infographics, watercolor backgrounds and more for only $39 (the original total value is $676).
Anyone with their own website will definitely geek out over these Envato’s CyberMonday bundle items, but you’ve got until this Saturday to decide.
If money ain’t no thang and you really want to knock the socks off your fave travel lover, why not surprise them with a flight to Australia/Fiji/New Zealand?
Of course this is a bit of an extravagant gift, but if you can swing it, 40% off these normally outrageously expensive flights is definitely worth it. (The 40% off FijiAirways sale ends today!)
Rail Europe’s CyberWeek sales are pretty sweet if you’re planning a trip to Europe, and they’re available until Dec. 4.
It would be pretty hard to be disappointed by a Global Eurail Pass ($100 off using promo code EURAILCYBER100). Other deals include $300 off first class 2-adult Grand Train Tour of Switzerland Package, and $30 free with a $300 Rail Europe Gift Card.
Amazon Kindle/Fire & Kindle Unlimited/Prime
As a devout Kindle
worshiper user, I’ll say upfront that a Kindle PaperWhite for $99 with a 6-month Kindle Unlimited subscription for $44.95 sounds like my kind of gift (think access to 1 million e-books and thousands of audiobooks from anywhere in the world).
BUT if you’re looking for something a bit more versatile, an Amazon Fire Tablet for $49 plus an Amazon Prime subscription for $99/year would be any digi-nomad’s dream (unlimited access to movies, TV shows, music, 800,000 e-books AND unlimited photo storage).
***Note: the cool thing about gifting a Kindle Unlimited subscription is that if the user decides they don’t want the subscription they can exchange it for a gift card!
Surprise your digital nomad with 3 months of Skillshare Premium for just $0.99!
Their amazing online classes cover just about every potential money-making topic on the interwebz today (Business, Design, Writing, Computer Programming, Photography, Music, and more).
Even for someone who’s not looking to start a business online or create a freelancing career, this deal is too sweet to pass up.
