Gift Ideas For Travelers – Dads and Grads Too
The best gift ideas for travelers is not only for those who travel, but it’s also for those that drive a car or love the best in tech. I am about to uncover are perfect for grads and dads, so bookmark this page, or order them as you are reading. Let’s shop.
When you travel, you learn there are things you come to rely on, time after time and trip after trip. From reliable charging cables to accent pieces that can change up a style effortlessly. Don’t forget you will need a burst of power and I’ve found that too.
All Things NOMAD. For years, I’ve collaborated with NOMAD and I am happy to say our collabs continue on. Todays’ products are provided by NOMAD, and tested, used and traveled with by me!
Have you ever been on a trip and wanted to easily change up an accessory? Here’s the one you want, a Classic Watch strap that will take you from the ‘blah’ to the ‘YAH!’ It takes seconds and suddenly you are dressed up, or your watch is!
While Apple watches are great, they also are blah with their silicon ugly straps. Sorry for all of you looking at your strap and regretting it now. Timepieces make statements.
While an Apple watch makes its own statement (you are on top of your life and organized), the one it should make when you are dressed for important meetings or functions really is missing.
Somehow Apple just misses the mark here. To me, the watch is both a statement piece and a useful item, yet it so mundane on the wrist. The NOMAD Traditional Leather strap is the piece the watch has been missing.
Crafted of Horween Leather it allows the strap to weather after coming into contact with the daily elements and it develops a lovely patina. Comfortable on the wrist and it truly sets your Apple watch out amidst the sea of silicone ugly straps.
The back of the strap is lined with soft leather, so no worries that it will irritate the skin, it won’t! Perhaps the features to really note are the Stainless Steel Buckle and Lugs. Created of ‘industry-leading marine grade 316 stainless steel.
Of course, you can easily switch back to your silicone strap whenever you want because it is so easily interchangeable.
I can call this cable chatter, but if you don’t have these cables you may not have chatter! We’ve all been there, on a trip, in a rental car, or at a place where we forgot a cable and suddenly no phone.
You search through your travel bags and no dice. Lesson learned. Here’s how to correct that missing cable issue forevermore, whether you are on vacation or in your car, these pieces will fill in the void.
Universal Cable – The Beast of a Cable
Don’t buy those flimsy cables that keep on tearing. Get the NOMAD Universal Cable crafted of braided ballistic nylon cable making it rugged and travel worthy. The Universal Cable offers an integrated multi-tip charging option to charge any USB-C, or Micro USB device, including Macbook.
What else? It’s also a USB-C to USB-C cable. Two tips offer a legacy USB-A to charge from all old USB-A ports and a legacy Micro USB so you can charge those older phones, wireless headphones, etc.
This cable is the beast of a cable because it is ready for any and every situation, no more worrying about being without a Charge!
2 – in – 1 Cable for the iPhone
It’s a charger and a cable is that even possible? Yes. If you have plugged in the USB end to charge the battery you are on your way. In fact, the battery cable will charge the phone before charging the internal battery.
Tuck the battery cable into your backpack, it’s long enough to still reach your phone and allows you the freedom to use the phone while charging. I carry mine in my purse every day and my purse is always with me. I rely on this 2-in-1 cable daily!
Rugged as I’ve ever seen or worked with. It gets banged around in my handbag, falls to the bottom, and even dropped on the ground and it still keeps on working! Truly my kind of product!
The Battery cable is durable. It’s nylon wrapped, MFI Certified Lightning Cable with a high capacity 2800mAh portable battery.
One of my favorite things about this battery cable is that it provides my iPhone 8 a full charge for life on the go!
Power Up On The Go
Combine the 2-in-1 Cable for your iPhone with this NOMAD PowerPack and you are literally powered up on the go for a long time! Or, use the Universal Cable for a tough cable, that is long and put the PowerPack in your pocket yet keep using your phone!
Why do I have only a picture of a box? Well, on a recent trip, I believe the hotel staff liked the charger so much they walked off with it. Unfortunate as that is, it’s another testimonial to the value of this piece. Fantastic to have.
Rugged? Yes! I dropped it onto asphalt when retrieving my phone and it was fine. I do not recommend doing this just to do it, but mentioning it because it is durable and fine after that 5 foot drop.
With all of the options for charging it is the PIECE that you need with you on every trip, just remember the cables for all the others, LOL! Durable, waterproof, and smaller in height than most smartphones.
In fact, this tucks nicely into pockets or backpack pockets and is ready to use when you need it. The integration of TILE to find this when you lose it is invaluable. We’ve all been there when you sitting in one place charging and suddenly walk away with full intent to come back.
You forget where you were and can’t find the PowerPack because you forgot where you were when you were charging. Fear not, install the TILE app and it will locate your charger.
It’s time to shop. Let’s go tech and shop gifts that no grad, Dad or Mom can be without. Ready? Time to shop. Powerpacks, Cables, and Watch Straps are gifting ideas that will help you out. Head over to NOMAD and peruse the site. Don’t forget to get something for yourself.
