Technology has become a part of our day-to-day lives and there’s no question that it continues to enhance the way we travel. Whether it’s an action camera to capture memories, a power bank to keep devices charged, or headphones to block out the noise while on the move, the right gadgets can go a long way while on the road. If you’re shopping for a tech-savvy globetrotter this holiday season, consider what gear they don’t already have or what may need to be updated, because there have been some exceptional new updates this year to tried-and-true accessories. But to help you decide, here are 11 gadgets that they’ll love to pack in their bags.

More compact than ever, DJI’s Mini 3 Pro weighs less than 249 grams and has up to 34 minutes of flight time and can fly up to a little over 11 miles with the standard battery that it comes with (there’s the Plus kit option that includes upgraded batteries for even better performance). The camera can shoot 4K HDR videos and 48MP RAW photos, but perhaps the best characteristic is the ability to capture content vertically, a game changer for anyone who has a presence on social media. It also boasts incredible modes like panorama—which includes wide-angle, 180-degree, and sphere shots—as well as a tracking feature that will follow any selected moving obstacle. But if you’re shopping for someone who doesn’t care about the weight or size of a drone and wants the utmost quality, the DJI Mavic 3 still reigns supreme.

When you’re traveling, noise-canceling headphones are a must to help block out the drum of aircrafts or talkative passengers. For one of the best pairs, look to Sony’s WH-1000XM5. These over-ear headphones not only have some of the best noise-canceling technology in the game, but they also prioritize high-quality sound. It also has great battery life, lasting up to a full day when noise cancellation is activated or up to 32 hours when it’s off. But if you know your traveler prefers earbuds, the Sony WF-1000MX4 is also a winner and delivers great noise-cancellation for its compact size.

GoPro outdid itself with the Hero10 Black, yet they’ve still managed to up the ante with its newest iteration of the beloved action camera. The Hero11 Black can still shoot videos up to 5.3K/60fps, but has a slight improvement with still photos at 27MP, including frame grabs, and RAW capture in all modes. It can now also record up to 10-bit color, which is most beneficial for professionals who color grade their footage; even more stabilization; and three new night modes with some fun effects. But the most notable difference is the new 8:7 sensor that makes editing content for social media much easier than any of its predecessors and enables a HyperView lens for extremely wide shots. And, of course, it’s still waterproof up to 33 feet.
