If you’ve got a frequent traveler or even a commuter on your list this year, these are some top stocking stuffers.

Travel tech gifts get more advanced every year. This creates a fantastic opportunity to make sure that the jet setter or commuter in your life always has the latest and greatest.

The 2017 holiday season is here, and it’s becoming rapidly clear that some gadgets are topping shopping lists.

The following are some of the top travel tech gifts that are expected to be among the first to fly off the shelves – physical and digital – this year. The best way to make sure you get your hands on them before they sell out is to know what they are so that you can look for them as quickly as possible. This will let you find out who is selling them and what kind of savings will be available for you on Black Friday, Cyber Monday and other holiday sales.

Get these travel tech gifts as early as possible to find the lowest prices before they all sell out.

1. Mogix Power Bank – This high capacity, slim and light external battery charger makes it possible for your gift recipient to charge a smartphone and another device like a tablet or e-reader at the same time. With a huge 10,400 mAh capacity, you can recharge a smartphone around six times, or charge two devices at once. With two fast USB charging ports, an indicator that uses lights to tell you how much juice is still left in the back up battery, a sleek design with rounded corners and the choice between a black or white model, it is the ideal travel solution for long or short trips. For the commuter, an even slimmer and lighter 5,000 mAh model is also available.

2. Espro Travel Coffee Press – If you spend a lot of time traveling to work every day or if you’re constantly living out of hotel rooms as you fly from one place to another, then you may feel forced to drink the sub-par coffee provided to you or spend a fortune on specialty coffees from coffee shops every day. The Espro press is the perfect travel press that lets the traveler in your life make a fantastic cup of coffee using French press technology in a stainless steel travel mug that will keep the beverage hot for up to six hours. This press is about ten times finer than a typical French press, so your recipient will get all the flavor without any grounds.

3. TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones – These earphones were designed by Sony to be perfect for users during workouts, but they’re also fantastic travel tech gifts for all the same reasons. They are sweat-proof (IPX5 splash rated), feature a massive seven hour battery life (talk time) and 175 hours of standby. They use Bluetooth 4.1 technology by way of an internal ceramic antenna that ensures a stable connection. The short, necklace-style wire connection keeps the headphones free of tangles regardless of whether your gift recipient is wearing them or whether they have been jammed into a carry-on pocket.
