10 Gift Ideas for the Marketer In Your Life
The holiday season is here, and if you haven’t finished your holiday shopping, the clock is ticking! Whether you’re a marketer who needs some ideas to add to their wishlist or you need some inspiration for what to get your co-worker for the office secret santa, we have some great ideas perfect for anyone that lives and breathes marketing.
- Charging Station
Just like many business professionals, marketers tend to use many different devices all day long, which leads to many drained batteries. This convenient charging station has a spot for your apple watch, iphone, and airPods, so you don’t have to pick and choose which device gets to have a full charge.
- Standing Desk
Sitting at a desk and staring at a computer screen all day is pretty common for most marketers. Sitting this much can have adverse effects on your health, and put you at a higher risk for many health issues. Standing desks are a great way to be able to continue working without having to stay seated all day. They promote a more active work environment, and keep people moving. While a brand new standing desk can be pricey and may not fit in your work space, these standing desk converters can give the benefits of a standing desk without breaking the bank!
- Apple pencil
If the marketer in your life already has an iPad, an Apple Pencil is the perfect gift to make their tablet even more useful. There are countless apps for note taking, drawing, and much more, great for any creative type. Whether they’re using it in the office, at home, or at meetings on the go, they will be thankful for the ease and flexibility an Apple Pencil brings.
- Coffee Gift Card
It’s no secret that everyone loves coffee, but at our office we REALLY love coffee. A gift card to a favorite coffee shop is always a welcomed gift, especially this time of year when people are trying to cut back on their daily spending to save money for Christmas gifts and other holiday expenses. This can be the perfect gift for a co-worker or friend that may not be so easy to buy for.
While we’re on the subject of coffee, a mug is also a great gift for pretty much anyone – especially if it’s funny. This one from Amazon is perfect for people who work in marketing that probably spend half their life proofreading ads, blogs, etc. making sure everything is spelled correctly.
- Mug Warmer
Last coffee gift, I swear (I told you, we REALLY love coffee). If you’re anything like me, you pour a cup of coffee, take one sip, the phone rings, you send a few emails, get pulled into a meeting, and the next sip of coffee you take is ice cold. These coffee mug warmers are perfect for people working in an office and will keep your drink warm while you tend to other things.
- 2022 Planner
While many people have transitioned to keeping their calendar digitally, some of us still like to use good old fashioned pen and paper. There are countless planners out there that will work, but these Personal Planners can be customized to suit your needs. They also offer gift cards, so you can let them pick out exactly what they want!
- A Great Book
Reading is the perfect way to unwind and reduce stress after a long and tiring day at the office. There are many awesome marketing books out there, but a fan favorite in our office is The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The lessons in this book can be related to marketing, but can also relate to many other aspects of life.
- Noise Cancelling Headphones
Many marketing agencies have adopted open concept office spaces, which are awesome for collaboration and create a fantastic work environment. While there are many benefits to an open office, it can be tough when there is a deadline and you need to focus. Noise cancelling headphones can help block out everything else and focus on the task that needs to be done.
- Blue Light Glasses
Whether they’re an account manager, a graphic designer or a digital marketer, chances are they spend a lot of their day working on your computer. Blue light blocking glasses increase contrast on the screen, making it easier to focus and subsequently reduce eye strain. This can reduce headaches and eye pain that may be caused by looking at a screen.
These gifts are just a few of many ideas that would be perfect for the marketer in your life. From gift cards to local businesses to music subscriptions to donations in their name, the options are endless. When shopping this year, try not to put too much stress on yourself to find the perfect gift and remember a gift of any type is always appreciated. Merry Christmas!
