Have I told you lately how much I love this time of year? Have I told you lately how much I love to shop? Yes it is true. I love picking out the perfect gift for someone special. I love searching for the best possible deal on Black Friday. I love the crowds, the food, the festivals… this is my time!
Today I have selected some of my favorite gifts for bloggers and home business owners. These are great for gifting to loved ones, virtual assistants, or yourself.
Commit30 planner – If you follow me regularly, you’ve already heard me talk about this planner more than once. Daily planners are essential for entrepreneurs. And when I’m ready for growth, I find committing to a short-term “challenge” is the best way to accomplish big things. This planner helps you set monthly goals and achieve them by completing daily tasks. Awesome! I ordered mine, and it should arrive soon.
Business card holder – On my “to do” list for 2016 is attending at least one blogging conference. I have to sort it out. I just need to make my travel arrangements and buy some cool new business cards, which I haven’t done in five years! For easy storage, I found this cute little holder. There are over 200 fabrics to choose from and monogramming is free. (If you’re wondering where I buy my new “blogging” cards, Also from Etsy. They have a huge selection of custom cards to reflect every personality and niche.)
Inspirational art – Every home office needs a little inspiration. I love this watercolor with a quote from Chuck Close, “Inspiration is for amateurs; The rest of us just show up and get to work.”
Diva Light Ring – This is a bit off topic, but I’ve heard a lot of recommendations for the Diva Light Ring for periscoping, video blogging and indoor photography. It’s definitely on my wish list though I don’t know if I’ll be investing anytime soon. Perhaps Santa will leave it in my stocking.
Headshot – Another splurge, but a professional headshot is a must in my book. Again, my headshot is probably five years old. Shameful! ? I’ve already scheduled a fun photo shoot for March and I plan to do a few headshots for the blog that also reflect my personality. The good news is that there are so many people offering amateur freelance photography services today, you can probably find someone really affordable in your community or on Facebook.
Would love to hear what’s on your wish list this year. Leave me a comment below.
