When shopping for the travelling friend that loves the latest technology or if you are shopping for yourself (hint, hint) here is an easy shopping guide of twelve great tech gifts for the traveller in your life.

This gadget immediately aerates the wine for a better flavour and is compact enough at only 4×6 inches to take on a picnic or pack in your carry-on. If they enjoy their wine at home, they’ll love this portable aerator for use when they travel.
I believe, that most of us that travel on a regular basis would agree, we can never get enough tech gadgets! I enjoy surfing for gift ideas to buy for my friends and love making wish lists of all the items I dream of owning.
