The holidays are the busiest time for business owners. We don’t have time to get y’all gifts, let alone know what to ask for. However, we need love too. So I’ve gone ahead and put together a gift guide for entrepreneurs and side hustlers. When you are building a business, you need a balance of motivation and elbow grease to get it all done. These products are just that: small reminders that “we got this,” tools to make our lives easier, and accessories that are also functional. I promise these gift ideas will make the entrepreneurs in your life feel appreciated and help them grow—or start—their businesses.
1. Super Affordable Beginner Canon Camera
Nothing beats feeling like a million bucks and looking like 1000 likes (on a budget). This camera is great for a beginner blogger who wants to take better photos, record videos and just step up their visual content. I researched cameras for weeks and this is the best one in price and functionality.
This tool changed my life as a blogger and business owner forever. This tool helps you automate your social media sharing, which will save time and energy while increasing blog traffic. (I doubled my blog traffic after I started using it.)
3. Girl Boss Tank
Sometimes, you just have to let them know. This is the perfect tank to wear to a networking event.
4. Karma Wifi
Work can call anywhere, like in a car during a 14 hour roadtrip. This portable wifi hotspot will change the meaning of multi-tasking.
5. Night Pillow
A new meaning for beauty sleep. When you work so many hours, a good night’s sleep is essential. These pillows are heavenly.
6. Dragon Dictation Software
Typing is so 2015. Content should be spoken. Dragon Dictation is talk-to-text software that will cut the time you take to write e-books, emails, blog posts and even a book, in half.
7. Phone-Charging Wristlet
Purses that not only house your phone stylishly — they’ll charge it, too. Need I say more?

10. 5 Minute Gratitude Journal
