Would you consider yourself great at selecting gifts for friends and family? Whatever your answer, if you have a blogger and or creative or entrepreneur in your life, they can be hard to shop for or so I’ve been told, if you want to get something for the entrepreneur in your loved one versus something that fits the other aspects of their personality. Today, I’m sharing some suggestions for you to use as a gift, something to pair another gift with or starting point in your search for the perfect gift this holiday season in this holiday gift guide for bloggers and other creatives
Holiday Gift Guide For Bloggers & Creatives
Laptop Table: I’m not always working while sitting in my wheelchair so I wanted to find something that works whether I’m sitting on the couch or the floor. I found this laptop table on Amazon and I’ve been using it everyday since. The table is easily adjustable so that you can easily put it on your lap if you choose to use it sitting on the couch. I like to raise it to the highest height then put it on my lap when sitting cross-legged on the floor, this aspect is what truly sold me on the product. However if you don’t like doing it you can put the table in front of you and use the clips to hold your laptop in place so that it doesn’t move when you type. This feature is great if you prefer to type that way as the tilting aspect of the table. I have my favorite ways of using this laptop table, but I’ll recommend it to anyone because there are so many customizable options for it so it made the top of the gift guide.
Etsy Gift Card: I’d been hearing about Etsy for years before I actually decided to start searching it for blogging tools. Etsy has amazing templates for websites and stock photos for blog or social media posts. The marketplace is a great way to search for what you need and discover new businesses for ideas in the future. In addition to those products, Esty offers cute items such as mugs and t-shirts about blogging that you can either buy or the blogger in your life can purchase for herself with the gift card.
Tripod: A great blog can’t exist without some amazing photos and although stock photos exist, there is nothing like taking your own photos. Since someone can’t be around all the time, a selfie stick and tripod, an easily portable tripod , is a great gift for any blogger or creative. Amazon has several options, but for the past two years, I’ve been using the UBeesize 50’’ Extendable Lightweight Aluminum Tripod Stand. This tripod is easy to manipulate whether or not I’m in my wheelchair and has a Bluetooth remote to take pictures so that I don’t have to use the timer, A tripod allows you to play around with angles to get some amazing shots so that the content any blogger creates is amazing.
Selfie Stick: A Selfie Stick is a given, taking the perfect selfie can seem impossible, but a selfie stick can put some of the fun back into the experience and is a definite time saver. I’ve had a few selfie sticks since I started this blogging journey, but right now I’m currently liking the Ambertronix 40″ Lighted Selfie Stick Tripod, Removable Bluetooth Remote. This selfie stick doubles as a mini tripod and though I’ve used it in that manner, I prefer to use the selfie stick way because it almost seems like a smartphone is too heavy for the tripod option. In selfie stick mode I was happy with the light modes it has because more light is more often than not helpful for great photos. These products both have their pros and cons, but are great options, especially if the blogger in your life is just starting out
Yogibo Lounger & Support Pillow : This is a new discovery for me and after trying the product for a few minutes in store, I already know that it’s going to be a feature in my daily routine when I’m working on the blog. The Yogibo Lounger is comfortable enough to be sitting in it for a while to work if you want to get off the couch and in my case out of the wheelchair. These beanbags aren’t the same ones that you may have used years ago since they appear to have more form in my opinion and the accompanying support pillow I hope to get does just that, it’s enough to keep me balanced and comfortable. I’m excited to get it and see how it holds up after daily use for a year.
Gift giving can be fun, but it can also be difficult to find a gift that you know your loved one will like. I enjoyed the time I have used each one of these products immensely and I hope that you found something for the blogger/ creative in your life, if not I hope this gift guide inspired some great ideas that you can pair with other gifts. Well this wraps up my first ever gift guide post, I’m not sure that I’ll be doing many of these, but it was fun to this. Happy holidays
