Holiday Gift Guide for The Online Entrepreneur
I love gift guides! They’re my favorite spreads in holiday magazines, and I love pinning them on Pinterest. I strive to find the perfect something for the important people in my life beyond a gift card - and sometimes that applies to myself as well.
Whether you are the entrepreneur or you have a very important person in your life who runs their own show, CEOs need some extra TLC. We work with a passion and a drive that steers our priorities and sometimes that means long hours and not enough self-care.
Not only am I an online entrepreneur that works from a home office, but my favorite clients and students are as well. I’ve put together a list of favorites that will make any entrepreneur’s day brighter, more relaxing, and more productive.
Please feel free to forward this blog to your friends and family if they need holiday gift ideas, and don’t forget to pin!
1) The Daily Greatness Business Planner
$49.95 (price without 5% discount)
I am a total business planner and daily planner junkies. I have used everything from planners found in Target to the Bullet Journal method to my own printouts. There is NOTHING that approaches the The Daily Greatness Business Planner.
“Arguably the most comprehensive and stunning business planner on the market, the latest planner in the Dailygreatness series is a must-have for your business in 2017 and beyond.
Encompassing everything you need to succeed in your business over the coming year, this planner is designed to upgrade your thinking while helping you hit your yearly business goals. With a unique combination of an undated yearly planner (you can start anytime), finance & budget worksheets, goal, action and appointment planners and the best personal development tools, distilled down into a simple daily, weekly & quarterly structure, this powerful tool will support you in creating the habits of a Peak Performer.”
Most online entrepreneurs are creating content for their business that involves speaking - Facebook Lives, YouTube, Podcasts, Interviews, Vlogging, etc. Having great audio equipment makes you sound like the professional you are. Samson is an industry leader and this little microphone is affordable and just what you need.
A great webcam is another essential element of running an online business, from client meetings on Zoom or Skype to creating videos for your courses - you have to look high-res. Another industry leader, Logitech provides a great quality webcam.
4) The Social Media Playbook
A workbook and planning guide to create a kickass social media strategy. Designed for Small Business Rockstars just like you!
This is your playbook to create, document + plan the big picture of your social media plan for the coming year. This workbook + guide will help you put it all together.
**PLEASE NOTE** The Social Media Playbook will no longer be offered as a stand alone product after 2017. It will be offered as part of a more comprehensive course:
5) Sharpie Twin Tip Assorted 8 Pack
I prefer to write in my planner and on post-its with markers, and these Sharpies are dual-tipped and colorful!
6) Post-it Super Sticky Notes
Speaking of Post-Its - it’s my preferred method for brain-dumping ideas, plans, and projects. I love categorizing by color for my to-do’s.
7) Hydro Flask - 64oz
It’s so easy to forget to drink water during the day when you’re focused on your work. Hydro Flask is known for being high-quality and is available in tons of colors (I love the teal).
My diffuser is one of the first things I do when I sit down to work in the morning. I choose one or two essential oils for the day based on if I need comfort or focus.
9) Slipper Sock Booties
When I’m working from home - even when I’m dressed for the day with hair and makeup - I’m usually wearing cozy slipper booties. Especially in the winter, these make me feel like I’m practically working from bed, even if I’m not.
10) Electric Kettle
I keep an electric kettle in my office for morning coffee and afternoon tea. Little things like setting up a tray with a favorite coffee mug, tea, coffee + coffee press feel luxurious and convenient.
The perfect organic lip balm to keep chapped lips at bay.
12) Aloe Vera Plant
There’s something about live greenery that makes any room better. Good for air quality and hard to kill, having an aloe vera plant in your office is a great addition.
So there you have it - my holiday gift guide for an online entrepreneur’s essentials. Is there anything you’d add to this list? Let me know in the comments!
