19 Gifts for the Remote Worker in Your Life

Someone you love starting a new remote gig on Jan 1? Someone you work with looking to maximize their remote working experience? We polled some of our most in-the-know and on-the-go pals for their must-haves.

Go Big

Apple Watch

Get reminders to move when you’ve been sitting at a desk for too long or use Apple Pay to get on the train without taking out a wallet. Two quick taps and you’re good to go.

Bose QuietComfort 20 Noise Canceling Earbuds

Remote workers love connecting and networking. Until they don’t. These are spendy but the quality has yet to be topped.

Chromebook

Several travel and freelance writers we know swear by the Chromebook for ease, access and affordability.

Stay Connected

Outtek Smart Surge Protection 2500W

You want a surge protector. And extra plugs. And a USB port. Get it all in one.

Jackery Pop Portable Charger

Super small, super lightweight and may just save your rump in a bind.

Get to Work

Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse

When the trackpad just won’t cut it anymore, a wireless mouse is a quick fix.

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard for Business

This keyboard was noted as being comfortable, flexible and great for small space setups.

Awesomely Analog

Machine Era Solid Brass Pen

Feels great in the hand, will last a lifetime and uses a standard Pilot G2 cartridge.

Pentel Graph Gear 1000 Automatic Drafting Pencil

For sketching or illustration, this retractable pencil also has a good sized eraser.

Moleskin Classic Notebook

It’s a classic for a reason.

Partstock Stainless Steel Card Holder

Keep those cards safe with a holder great for men and women.

Sip & Snack

Tazo Tea

Although all coworking spaces provide coffee, sometimes it’s nice to have something more mellow. Carry around a few Tazo Tea sachets.

Bodum travel french press mug

To make that tea, or for the premium coffee snob who needs to self brew, a stainless steel travel french press is a perfection option.

S’well Wood Water Bottle

Beyond staying caffeinated, staying hydrated will keep you happy and productive.

RxBar

A local Chicago option but available everywhere, these bars are made of 100% real food and no unnatural overly-processed junk.

Sencha Green Tea Mints

Coworking is about networking. Make sure your favorite remote worker always makes a good impression.

On the Move

TSA Pre-Check & Global Entry

For frequent travelers, consider gifting them these multi-year headache erasers.

Pick up a book

Several coworkers mentioned always having a great book on hand. Check out NPR’s list of the best books of 2015.

Fujifilm x100T

One perk of remote working is seeing more of the neighborhood, city and world. Help someone document that with more than a phone.
