Don’t you just love the holiday season? I love it for a number of reasons, but one of them is my annual Holiday Gift Guide. Today, I’m sharing the 5th edition (I know! what?!). And this year’s items are all from small shops/creators. They would be great gift ideas for the creative in your life. Or maybe that creative is YOU. 😉
Gift Idea #1: The Creatives Wall Calendar
First up is something every creative can benefit from. If you’re a planner like me, a calendar is a must. Especially if you’ve been following my two most recent posts about creating boundaries and work-life balance. This gift idea is the Calligraphy Perpetual Creatives Calendar. It’s the perfect size. But it’s also made of plexiglass and undated for easy reuse!
Gift Idea #3: Creative Wall Art
Next, is all about visual aesthetics to get into the holiday spirit. For the kid at heart, the Christmas lover, and the art enthusiast, the Holiday Magic Daydream Art Canvas is the perfect gift idea. It can warm your office and be hung for years to come.
Gift Idea #4: Phone Holder Lamp
Now, I am absolutely obsessed with this Canvas Stand. It comes in a few different colors. There’s even a clip that attaches the stand to your desk. I find this to be an amazing gift for the creative who takes selfies, shoots video, or needs a hands free way to to make content.
Gift Idea #5: Stocking Stuffer
Sometimes, a break from working is needed. These Gummy Bears are the perfect treat. This sweet candy can also double as a wonderful stocking stuffer. And BONUS: there are great flavors with a crazy low amount of sugar you guys. I’m a huge candy lover. I found these at my local Sprouts and fell in LOVE.
Gift Idea #6: Book Of The Year
So, I’m an avid reader, and I highly recommend SoundTracks. EVERY human should read this, but especially creatives and entrepreneurs. This book gives you the tools to overcome overthinking and go after the things you really want to in life. I seriously can’t recommend it enough. Also, the author, Jon Acuff, has a channel on YouTube you should check out!
Gift Idea #7: 2022 Day Planner
How beautiful is the “Perfectly Planned” by Carrie Green and the Female Entrepreneur association? It’s full of everything you would want in a daily planner and available in 4 colors. With the constant list of to-do’s, all creatives can take advantage of this planner.
Gift Idea #8: Camera Bag
Last but certainly not least is the Mina Daypack. This would not be my annual holiday gift guide without something specifically for photographers on the list! And this one does not disappoint. this is fantastic for daily travel. It comes in 3 different colors and is more compact for smaller equipment.
