As an executive, it can be tough traveling on the road all the time. It’s important to invest in products made specifically for the traveling business person to make your life a bit easier.
Here’s ten of the most essential items for business travelers:
1. Beats Headphones
Beyond their world-renowned quality, Beats are lightweight, durable, and comfortable. Their noise cancellation and dynamic acoustic effects leave an impact that standard headphones can’t match. Starting at $199.95, Beats Headphones are a must-have for anybody who listens to music during long business trips.
To make sure your trip stays on track, a Filofax Organizer is a must. Made of beautiful brown leather, the Malden Organizer includes a two-week agenda, ruled notepad, contact pages, and room for pens, calculators, and other gadgets. The peace of mind is well worth $160.
3. Business Luggage
When you’re constantly on the road, it’s important to have luggage that can handle the wear and tear. Briggs & Riley has an entire set of business luggage that’s made to be lightweight and durable, with laptop cases, and everything else you could need. These luxury luggage bags start around $300 (matching toiletry bags are $50 each).
4. Bluetooth Keyboard
Being able to get real work done efficiently requires a keyboard, but smartphones and tablets don’t have that luxury. Logitech’s Bluetooth-enabled K810 keyboard, however, allows you to pair with any iOS, Android, or Windows system. This gives you access to a fully functional keyboard no matter where you are- for only $100!
5. Luxury Neck Pillow
On a long flight, a comfortable neck pillow is indispensable. Tempur-Pedic, renowned for their incredible mattresses and pillows, have designed a small neck pillow made specifically for travelers. It provides lumbar support and ensures you’ll stay relaxed all flight. These pillows cost $79.00 each.
6. Leather Laptop Briefcase
Saddleback has created a lightweight, heavy-duty leather briefcase that’s able to carry today’s modern electronics while maintaining a classic look. Able to carry tablets and most laptops, there are additional pockets for pens, chargers, and room for papers and files. A medium bag is $461, while a large bag is only $474.
7. Universal Power Adapter
Whether it’s a long layover or a day full of meetings, sometimes you just don’t have time to charge your tablet, laptop, or smartphone. MyCharge has developed a sleek, powerful universal power adapter that provides up to forty hours of juice to any Apple, Android, or USB device- up to three at a time! This convenience will set you back only $129.99.
8. Travel Sleep Sound Machine
Falling asleep in a noisy hotel room can be difficult, but the Travel Sleep Sound Machine by Sharper Image makes it easy. With soothing noises to help you fall asleep and a variety of peaceful alarm options, you’ll be able to show up to any meeting well-rested and alert. These machines will only set you back $99.99.
9. Pocket Projector
You never know when you’ll need to give an impromptu presentation, so having a pocket-sized projector can be a lifesaver. Brookstone offers a 100 Lumens projector that connects to any smartphone, tablet, or computer and can project HD video with ease. With speakers included, this costs $299.99.
10. Travel Shaver
When it comes to compact travel shavers, it’s impossible to beat the Remington DA-307. Using stainless steel and microscreens, the DA-307 provides an incredibly close and comfortable shave while staying small enough to fit into any travel bag. You need to show up to your meetings looking like a million bucks, so the $184.99 price tag is well worth the investment.
