As the holidays (quickly) approach, you’ll find gift guides galore written by bloggers on what to buy this year… but what about gifts for bloggers? Here’s gift guide and present ideas for those hard to shop for people: bloggers.
Blogging Planner ($8 – plus $5 to get it bound) – This is my favorite blogging planner. It’s made by a blogger for bloggers and includes pages to write down goals, seasonal blogging topics, giveaway trackers, to-do lists, expense and income reports, guest posting trackers, sponsor record keeper, and more! It’s basically the most comprehensive blogging calendar I have ever seen!
Tea Towels ($22) – Whether a food blogger or an instagram junkie – every one enjoys taking photos of food. Tea towels add character to photos or change it up so that your food isn’t on the same surface for EVERY picture.
Desk Organizer ($49) – Between the planners, spreadsheets, notebooks, and coffee mugs desks can get messy. Cute desk organizers are a win-win keeping workspace clear and allowing us to put more
junk notebooks in its place.
Notebook ($14) – Mini notebooks are a great idea because you never know when the next great post idea will pop into your head and will need to jot it down real quick. I keep a notebook on me at all times.
Magazine Subscription – my favorite place to get blogging inspiration is magazines! I love Food Network Mag and get it shipped to Australia every couple months.. but many bloggers go to Vogue, People Style Watch, Better Homes and Gardens, and Fitness magazines for ideas. So find out what this person likes, or writes about, and you can’t go wrong with a subscription to that mag.
Camera Purse ($349) – It can get a bit clunky to carry around a camera bag and purse on a vacation, and I absolutely love this purse that combines the two. A bag of the same style, not leather, and less pricy here, or a similar bag for less than $150 here.
Camera ($549) – who wouldn’t want professional looking photos to share on their blog? I have a Cannon SL1 and love how small and lightweight it is. It’s so comfortable in my child-sized hands. My favorite lens for shooting food photography is the 50mm f/1.8 ($125), which basically makes your food stand out and blurs the background. If they’ve already got a dslr camera, a Tripod ($21.49) is a great gift as well.
Coffee Mug ($16) – Blogger drink a lot of coffee (well, not this blogger, but I do enjoy tea). Whatever your bloggers drink of choice you can’t go wrong with a cute mug and quote. I especially like the mugs from the Small Glow etsy shop because there are a few I think all blogging gals and guys can relate, like Coffee before SEO, Make it Happen, Time to Check Stats, Enjoy the Little Things, and Trust in Your Dreams.
Glitter Coaster ($34.95) – And the perfect place to set down that cup of coffee is on a glitter coaster!
Coconut Milk Bath ($45)- After a long day working and blogging my favorite way to unwind is in a relaxing bath (reading and commenting on blogs from my ipad – the blogging never stops), these bath salts ($22) are also great!
