Before all the Scrooges come down on me for being so early with the Christmas gift guides, I really wanted to put together six different gift guides….
Today’s post is all about the presents that the blogger in your life actually wants – whether that’s your girlfriend, your daughter or your best friend – I’ve got you covered! I’ve put these gifts gifts ideas into three sections, hope you guys can get some help from these:
Gifts under £10
Diary/Planner: No good blog can thrive without a dash of careful planning, so every blogger is in need of a good diary in which they can organise their editorial calendar. One with space for scribbling down ideas, but small enough to fit in a handbag would be ideal. If you’re looking for blog planner, Etsy have some great printable versions that come in on budget with money left over to spend on a binder to put them in – any blogger would love this thoughtful and creative gift idea.
Portable chargers: For those who like blogging on the go, a juiced up laptop or smartphone is essential. Portable chargers are a great gift for tech-conscious bloggers who run their battery down Instagraming, writing or vlogging while on the move.
Blogging Guides: If you’ve just started your blog or know someone who has, you might still have lots of unanswered questions about adding widgets, designing your own blog header or writing a gripping ‘About’ page. That’s where blogging guides can come in handy. Blog, Inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho is one such example that budding bloggers could find useful and inspirational.
Gifts under £50
Business Cards: Having business cards can give a blog that extra professional edge. They’re also great for swapping with other bloggers at events, or leaving around the local community in relevant shops/cafés/offices. Business cards can be quite a personal thing, so unless you know their style really well, it might be worth buying a voucher or letting the blogger choose their own design.
Privacy Screen: If your blogger travels a lot and writes on the go, it can be frustrating to feel as if those around are reading over their shoulder. Privacy screens for laptops and tablets are the solution here, as the screen is only visible to whoever is sat directly in front of it.
Blog Hosting: Every professional looking blog has its own domain name, and so blog hosting is a gift that any blogger would really appreciate. There are so many options for blog hosting, so have a shop around to find the best for your blogger.
Gifts under £100
Camera gear: Camera equipment is often one of those things that every blogger lusts after but is reluctant to splurge on. So if you have a bigger budget you could make their day with a piece of kit for their camera. How about a new lens, flash or tripod?
