As a blogger, there are plenty of things that I have that I use every day from my phone and camera, to my diary and laptop. As such it is quite easy to come up with a selection of the perfect gifts that you can buy for the blogger in your life this Christmas; from the fun and quirky to the downright expensive indulgences.
For an Organised Blogging Life
2018 Diary and/or Planner
One of my fellow bloggers, Aby from You Baby, Me Mummy has compiled her list of the eleven best planners for bloggers which you can find on her website here; but I think that my top choice would have to be Webster's Pages Planners.
Memory Stick and/or Portable External Hardrive
Point and Shoot (or DSLR whichever they don't already have!)
Accessories for the Blogging Essentials
Clip-On HD Phone Camera Lens Kit
Portable Charging Power Bank
I know I am not the only one who uses their phone so much it is constantly running out of battery. As a blogger my whole job is to be taking photos or be on social media (not a bad thing, that's for sure!) and having a power bank and cable close by for the inevitable moments it runs out of battery is always a good thing. I have three (all from Primark) just to be extra certain I will never run out of battery. The trick is to not forget to charge them once they have been used though!
Fitting everybody you are with, or everything around you, in a photo can be tricky, especially if you want to include yourself in it too. That is where a selfie stick comes in handy. There are three reasons they make the perfect gift for bloggers this Christmas:
1. They are a totally in-expensive item to buy.
2. They are available in so many places (mine is from Primark).
3. They are also super easy to use... the proof of which is I allowed Squidgy to have a go and she thought the whole thing was awesome.
For the Novelty Factor
Little Miss Blogger Mug
For Adding a Bit of Spice to Blog Photos
Speech Bubble Light Box
When it comes to blog photography it is all about the environment you shoot your photos in. Sometimes natural outdoor photography works. Other times you need to create a clean background to focus on the product (or person) you are photographing and that's where backdrops come in. Whether you buy purpose designed products such or some strips of material or even vinyl floor tiles (I totally have some of these!) there are plenty of options all of which will be the perfect gift for a blogger like me!
Props to include in flatlays and other photos are always good gifts for bloggers. Being able to mix it up and create fun, interesting photography is an important part of our job. The photography is always going to be a key part of our blogging and so little lights, cute ornament and other small props will always go down well as a gift for a blogger!
Coffee Shop Gift Card
Bloggers are often found working with a big cup of coffee, and many of us like to work in coffee shops. Not only does it get those of us whose only job is exclusively blogging, out of the house; but it also gives us somewhere comfortable and warm to work, free WiFi included! Popping a gift card for the blogger in your life's favourite coffee shop (mine is Costa if you're wondering!) into a card for Christmas is a great way to put a smile on their face.
Blogging Conference Tickets
There are a number of blogging conferences throughout the year, and most of them you are required to buy tickets for. Unless you are lucky enough to win them in a competition, it can be quite an expensive thing for bloggers to buy if they want to attend; and they are worth attending for networking and face to face time with both brands and other bloggers. Buying them a ticket to one or more is bound to keep the blogger in your life happy!
