One of the best parts of the digital nomad lifestyle is being able to showcase and maybe even brag a bit about all of your travels. This map is a fun way to show off everywhere they have been.

Makes for a great conversation piece or wall art for when they decide to hang up their nomadic hat.

Sometimes the best gift for a digital nomad isn’t something that you can order online. If you are truly stumped, offer up a comfortable spot to sleep and a home-cooked meal the next time your digital nomad is in town. Or, make reservations for a weekend at a luxury hotel with room service that doesn’t at all resemble road food.

Think of little ways to indulge your digital nomad. They work hard and they deserve it.
