I’m writing this post of must-have gifts for bloggers for my husband. (psst. and you might want to give this list to your husband, too.)
There is an endless number of products or services a blogger could want to have prepaid or even courses to take. Believe me, I have a list for each one!
But when it comes to gifts for bloggers, sometimes our friends and family aren’t really wanting to dish out to pay for our email service subscription. Because, where’s the fun in that?
Plus, my mom always said that a gift wasn’t something you planned on buying or were going to buy anyway (which is why I only got extra fancy toothbrushes in my stocking, not boring ones).
So, here are some of my favorite gifts for bloggers that are on my wishlist this year.
I sit in my desk chair for hours a day (who are we kidding?! hours at night. :P) and it’s served its time. So, a desk chair is a big ticket present if you’re wanting to shoot for the wow factor. I don’t know any girl who wouldn’t want a gorgeous desk chair to sit in.
I’m going to preface this with I don’t sell the oils. I’m not one of “those” people, but I do use oils at my desk. I have an awesome diffuser that I try to keep puffing away with oils that will help me with whatever I am needing for the day (comfort, inspiration, less anxiety). I’m needing a few different flavors, so they are on my list.
“Those” people will say that you can only buy quality oils at one of “their” companies, but I have compared and love Eden’s Garden. You can get them on Amazon (and they have comparable blends to the other companies), but I think it might be cheaper to buy directly from their website. Their oils are 100% pure therapeutic and smell stronger to me. Plus, some of their oils are organic.
Right now I’m using the keyboard that came with the computer. It’s pretty standard. Big, clunky. You get the idea. But, I recently opened up my old mac laptop and started missing my old keyboard.
Whewwww…..what a breath of fresh air. I type more than 99% of Grammarly users, so I would love for every stroke to be a happy one. Amiright?
At the moment, I’m currently eyeing one of the highest acclaimed ergonomic keyboards for writers. She’s a beauty.
I’m currently using a desk lamp that probably belongs tucked away in a guest bedroom somewhere, not out in front of me all day and all night. Don’t get me wrong, it’s cute and all. I’m just ready for something that looks a little more….productive looking.
I can’t tell you how many water rings are on my glass desk because of my water glass condensating all over the place. I just got this amazing stainless insulated cup in white (slim 24oz) and it’s amazing. It’s beautiful and functional. And less than $30. You can’t get any better than that!
Cute work at home clothes
Let’s get real here for a minute. I kick around in leggings, tank tops, and sloppy overshirts. I look like I just rolled out of a tiger fight in my bed when my husband gets home most days.
Would I love for my home clothes to be cute? Um, yes!! But who’s going to spend good money on cute home clothes when date night clothes are usually more priority?
Also, my husband probably can’t go out and buy this for me, so I’ll need a gift card. But, if I’m given the gift of home clothes, I’ll probably buy cute clothes I can kick in at home.
Girly office supplies/organization
I love having a cute organized desk for working from home. It’s important. I get stressed out when it’s a mess and I’m more eager to get to work when it’s cute.
Am I asking for too much here? Possibly, but it’s an idea worth exploring, right? Being a work from home mama is a long-hour kind of day. The minutes and hours sneak away throughout the day because kids, snack times, and potty breaks are calling. Sometimes, I’m crunching right up until the hubs walks in the door.
Having a stash of pre-cooked meals (or even having one available every week or two) could save a ton of stress.
If a meal service sounds kind of hoity-toity to you, a simple coupon book of freebie takeout days (preferably already purchased onto gift cards so there is less to worry about with the budget).
That’s right. A planner. This is the gift to beat all gifts. Want to know why? Because when you have goals and a plan plus trackable accountability you’re going to start getting stuff done. No more spinning your wheels when you have list full of empty checkboxes just waiting to get checked off. Feeling me?
And when you start getting those boxes checked off, you’ll be more productive, profitable, and you’ll have more time. I’m pretty sure that’s what heaven is going to be like.
As a work a home mom, I always feel like I need to be listing to what’s up in the house (even during naptimes). So, I never really get to jam out with my earphones in for productivity sessions.
But I can totally flip on a speaker and slam out some great work to my productivity music. (https://www.helpscout.net/blog/music-productivity/)
I am terrible at making time for reading, but I have a huge stack of audiobooks saved up for the day I get my glorious speaker. Imagine all I could learn while I’m slamming out some work behind my new keyboard!
She might not tell you, but every blogger wishes she knew how to take better pictures and had the equipment to make it happen. You might have just started sweating bullets, but there are options out there for every budget. And if she already has a camera, she probably wants a sweet lens or cute camera bag to go with it. You can’t go wrong with either of those.
psst. If you’re thinking about buying your first DSLR camera, be sure to check out this post before you actually buy it!
