Blogger Gift Guide

10 Gifts for BloggersThis year I decided to try my hand at gift-guiding (it’s a thing). I don’t know if you know this but I use to help create the pages for Tots To Teens Magazine’s gift guides, I loved it! We started our Holiday Magazine waaaaayyy in advance, there were times in October I was pulling out decorations to use as props for the December issue. I enjoyed working with the various companies and the excitement of opening packages to see what may make our list. Naturally, when deciding to create a few gift guides for my blog I got all nostalgic and missed my magazine days. I’ve created three fun themed gift guides, guides I think you can relate to: Gifts for Bloggers, Gifts for Creatives, and Gifts for Coffee Lovers. I basically put together a grownup wish list. (eh hem…)



Gift Guide for Bloggers

10 Gifts for Bloggers {Gift Guide}

1) #GirlBoss  by Sophia Amoruso| I’ve already read #GirlBoss, wrote about it, and would still like my own copy. After reading Sophia’s story and her philosophy on #GirlBoss-ing I think you’ll feel highly motivated to get  your hustle on! 🙂

2) Speaking of Hustlin’ this Everyday I’m Hustling mug by Fifth and Ivy is the perfect desk companion. If you’re anything like me you have a mug full of coffee or tea next to you while you’re writing.

3) FONTS WONDERFUL FONTS!! I’m a font fanatic, I’m actually borderline hoarder-ish when it comes to font collecting.  You can collect fonts too! These watercolor fonts by Angie Makes would make the perfect addition to any blog or newsletter.

6) I’ve heard wonderful things about Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative, it’s on my reading list and eh hem wish list.

 You don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself. That’s the message from Austin Kleon, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere, creativity is for everyone. A manifesto for the digital age, Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side. – On Amazon

7) Embrace Your Narrative! (insert hands in the air emoji) As bloggers, writers, doers, thinkers, creators, or whatever you want to call yourself, you should embrace your narrative. This bracelet by Emery Drive is the perfect reminder.

Many bloggers are investing in styled stock photos, JCM Photo has beautiful styled stock photos at reasonable prices. Now your newsletter, Instagram, and blog/shop images can look just as fancy. 😉

    1. You’re welcome! I’m glad I could help. Some styled stock can be a bit pricey, but JCM Photo & MadeBy Kasia Shop are reasonable. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Steph!

      Is there a reason you haven’t read it? Did you start it and not like it? I’ve heard good things about it, I’ll have to pick it up soon. 🙂

  1. Such great ideas! I love the book Steal Like an Artist — and such a quick read. I keep seeing Erin Condren planners popping up. I may have to get one for myself — or put it on my holiday wish list 😉

    1. I really need to read Steal Like an Artist it’s been on my list, probably after you mentioned it. 🙂 The Erin Condren planner is on my wish list, my husband knows 😉 I truly want to get more organized for 2016.

  2. Starbucks gift card for me, please!!
    And anything photo related.
    I love that mug! I was looking for a belated birthday gift for one of my blogging friends and that would be perfect for her!

    1. I love, love, love that mug! I think that mug makes the perfect gift for you and any other #GirlBoss doing their thang 😀

    1. Thank you!
      I’m still torn, I don’t know which one I want (design wise) but I know an EC planner is in the cards for 2016, it has to be.
      You can never have too many pens. 😉

    1. Thank you, Jill!
      I could totally use the iPhone camera lens, and I think I may have hinted just enough for it to be under my tree. 😀
      I think we all need that mug in our life.

  3. Dean you have seriously hit the spot on so many of these! I’ve added two books to my list and bookmarked the watercolor font. I just might use the font for an upcoming project in a few months!

    1. Thank you, Nina! I’m glad you liked this 🙂
      The fonts are too cute, I’m excited to see what you might use them for!!!

  4. Hey there lady! Hope you’re doing great!

    I love these ideas! I’m going to pass it along in hopes my fam sees this and gets me something from this list :).

    Hope you’re having a great week hun!


  5. I like the styled blog photos. Those are awesome and what a great idea. Maybe I could make money with something like that. I get most of my images from Fiverr.
