The Best Practical Gift Ideas for Bloggers and Entrepreneurs

 

This list of gift ideas for bloggers has been heavily requested from real bloggers around the world – it’s a collection of the top picks on every blogger’s wish list.

 

And if you’re not a blogger (or if you’re anything like my husband) you probably have NO IDEA what kind of gifts your blogger friends and loved ones *actually* want. 

 

We’re a unique breed of human and the things that we want, need, and love tend to bea little less than mainstream.

 

But fear not, my friend! 

 

I’m here to save you from that shopping headache and the dreaded mistake of buying a thoughtful, but unimpressive, gift for that awesome blogger in your life.

 

… Lookin’ at you, hubs!

 

Over the past year, I surveyed hundreds of part-time and full-time bloggers. 

 

I asked them about the top gifts on their blogging wish list. And I’m here to share that list with you…to help you (and my husband) choose the perfect gift for the bloggers in your life.

 

Here are the top 29 gift ideas for bloggers (as requested by REAL bloggers)!

Let’s start with the practical stuff, shall we?

 

PRACTICAL GIFT IDEAS FOR BLOGGERS

 

In no particular order, we’re listing out the most requested practical gifts that bloggers want and need! 

 

GIFT #1 : WEBSITE HOSTING

 

Every legit blogger has to pay for website hosting every year. It starts off relatively cheap and the price goes up as you grow.

 

Website hosting essentially provides a safe space for our blog to live on the internet. So, it’s kind of a big deal for bloggers.

 

Wanna make a blogger’s day? Gift them with a year of website hosting.

 

You’ll need access to their hosting account to pay for their website hosting directly. Or, you can buy a prepaid gift card and include a personalized note that says the gift is for website hosting.

 

Best practical gift ever!

 

GIFT # 2: BLOGGING EDUCATION

 

Most bloggers have their eye out for a great course or book that can help them step up their blogging game and reach their goals.

 

If your blogging friends or loved ones haven’t specifically mentioned the kind of blogging education they want to invest in, try drawing them out by asking what they’re focusing on or learning about right now in their business.

 

Here are some awesome courses and e-books that make great blogging gifts!

 

Pinteresting Strategies by Carly Campbell

 

This Pinterest marketing course is one of the most popular options out there and was created by a well-respected blogger. Every blogger has either taken the course or wants to take it! And it’s cheaper than most of the alternatives.

 

Definitely a good gift option!

 

On-Page and Off-Page SEO e-book Bundle by Debbie Gartner

 

This super affordable e-book bundle has two of my favorite educational products for bloggers. Buying the bundle gets you a nice discount and these books are a great gift idea for any blogger.

 

Stupid Simple SEO by Mike Pearson

 

This is a premium search engine optimization course that can absolutely change the game for any blogger that wants their content on page one of Google.

 

The only catch is that you have to sign up for the free SEO training first and then purchase through the webinar (or through later promotional emails in the email series). 

 

Affiliate Marketing, Simplified! by Cate Rosales

 

This is my action-packed online course that teaches you how to increase your affiliate marketing income, as quickly and easily as possible.

 

It’s affordable, super detailed, and a great gift for bloggers that are trying to earn more money from their blogs!

 

Product Perfection by Tracie Fobes

 

This course walks you through everything you need to know about creating and selling your own digital products.

 

If you or your blogging friends have been wanting to sell printables, or other digital products of your own, this is a great and affordable educational resource or gift!

 

GIFT # 3: THE GIFT OF TIME

 

If you know any bloggers in real life, you probably know that we’re spread pretty thin a lot of the time.

 

Trying to create great content every day, build a profitable business, put out fires, and care for other responsibilities – it’s A LOT.

 

So, here’s a gift idea that bloggers won’t soon forget: give them the gift of time!

 

  • Babysit their kids
  • Walk their dogs
  • Mow the lawn
  • Hire them a housecleaner
  • Run quick errands

 

A cute way to present this gift would be with a fun little coupon that they can cash in at their convenience! 

 

GIFT # 4: THE GIFT OF AUTOMATION

 

Along the same lines, we always appreciate things that make our work life just a little bit easier. 

 

There are so many practical gift ideas for bloggers that fall into this category, but here are two great ones.

 

Tailwind

 

This is a Pinterest and Instagram automation tool, and it’s a big time saver for bloggers that are committed to Pinterest marketing.

 

If you want to save a couple bucks and make this a gift that keeps giving all year, you can buy them the annual plan.

 

Publer

 

This is a scheduling tool for all sorts of social media platforms, and it allows you to create recurring content for up to six months in advance! Saving you a TON of time.

 

GIFT # 5: STOCK PHOTO MEMBERSHIPS

 

Most bloggers need access to stock photos at some point in their blogging career.

 

This is a practical gift that all bloggers will appreciate!

 

Some stock photo membership options:

 

 

You can usually just purchase the membership and give access to the blogger so they can download the stock photos that you bought for them.

 

GIFT # 6: LEGAL PAGES

 

All bloggers are required to have legal pages on their websites, but some can’t afford THE GOOD ONES. The ones that are drafted by an actual lawyer.

 

Although they aren’t super expensive, they might come as an unexpected surprise expense, so offering them up as a gift is pretty awesome.

 

Here is the legal bundle of absolute essential legal pages that every blogger needs: Legal Bundle by Amira from ASelfGuru.com

 

GIFT # 7: EMAIL AUTOMATION

 

Email marketing is an essential part of every blogging career, and therefore, a necessary expense.

 

Don’t hesitate to give the gift of an email service. 

 

If that blogger in your life doesn’t already have an email marketing system set up, you can create one for them through one of these platforms:

 

MooSend

Mailerlite

Converkit

 

If they already have their email marketing in place, consider offering them a gift card or prepaid card dedicated to this expense!

 

GIFT # 8: SHORT PIXEL

 

This is a plugin that allows you to optimize the images on your blog. And we all know that bloggers use lots and lots of images!

 

Short Pixel is an essential tool and a great gift idea. You can purchase Short Pixel here.

 

GIFT # 9: A NEW CAMERA

 

Having a DSLR camera is pretty much on every blogger’s wish list. Here are some of the favorites among them: 

 

Canon Rebel T7i

 

This is the camera I use and love. Super easy to use, for amateurs like me!

 

Nikon D5600

 

This one is a bit more expensive but gets a lot of positive reviews in the blogging community.

 

GIFT # 10: PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR

 

Some other ideas if a new camera isn’t in your gifting budget.

 

Lightbox
Ring Light
Photo Presets
Flatlay Backdrops
Flatlay Props

 

A little basket with a ring light and some flatlay props is a super cute gift idea!

 

GIFT # 11: A BLOG PLANNER

 

There are sooo many amazing blog planners out there, and they are very specific to the needs, schedule, and interests of bloggers!

 

Here are a few best sellers, but pretty much any blog planner or entrepreneur planner would make a nice gift.

 

The Simplified Planner

The Happiness Planner

The Passion Planner

 

You could also go with a good ol’ fashion monthly planner like this one, to be on the safe side!

 

GIFT # 12: NOTEBOOKS AND STATIONERY

Help that blogger get on their feet and get that blood flowing with a standing desk or a standing desk riser like this one.
