One of the best parts of the digital nomad lifestyle is having the ability to work anywhere in the world - setting up your private office by the beach, in the middle of the rainforest, or on top of a mountain - but all these wonderful distractions can be just that - distractions.
So this holiday season, our Franc & Iris family have hand-picked, tried and tested remote worker essentials to help you maximise your productivity, and work with style and ease with the Ultimate Gift Guide For The Remote Worker.
1. Laptop Sleeve
Since our lives virtually depend on our laptops - it’s crucial we treat them with the utmost respect. However, such is usually not the case.
This holiday season, this is a must-have for everyone who is frequently traveling with their laptop!
2. Laptop Stand
Sitting in front of a laptop all day can not only be exhausting on the mind but also the body. Since our bodies naturally bend downwards to the screen, it usually doesn’t take long until your neck and back will soon despise you!
Our suggestion? Minimise back pain with a laptop stand. Your screen sits higher, so you can keep your neck straight. And if you’re anything like us, this will also refrain you from working in bed all day. 😅 The perfect solution for digital nomads who can’t bring a big computer screen around with them!
3. Noise-Canceling Headphones
Go ahead, pay premium prices for a fancy co-working space! That won’t stop there from being that random one guy from blabbing at the desks, distracting you while you’re trying to get your work done.
Take our advice and invest in some noise-cancelling headphones, to drown out that guy who won’t shut up about the ~totally epic~ villa party he went to over the weekend. Ahhh, sweet relief!
4. Wireless Mouse
Cue the present everyone opens and is like ‘...Really? Why? 😐’ and then shortly after using, learns they cannot live without. Everyone needs that gift-giving person in their life who gives them the things they wouldn’t ever think about buying for themselves but then ends up using daily.
In steps... the wireless mouse. Our sweet, uncalloused digital nomad fingers get tired of swiping across that £1,500 keypad, okay! Trust us, drag and drop more efficiently with a wireless mouse this holiday season.
5. Anti-Blue Light Glasses
Did you reallyyy think we were going to write an entire holiday gift guide without mentioning our very own productivity essential? Don’t be so silly! 😜
In all seriousness, one of the major downfalls of working remotely is staring into screens so long your eyes feel like you haven’t blinked in 10 hours, feeling as dry as a desert with blurry vision. Not cute and not productive.
Help the digital nomad in your life protect their eyes, help them sleep better and reduce headaches / migraines with stylish frames that help them maximise their productivity and are kind to their eyes. Trust us, blue light glasses are worth it.
Let’s be honest, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to cool gadgets out there to help support and upgrade your laptop lifestyle! The Franc & Iris family of remote workers think these are the five essentials in creating the perfect remote office, and also help keep it easily under 23 kg 😉🛫.
Happy holidays & happy shopping!
