Entrepreneurs don’t always take the time to splurge on themselves. Between juggling professional and personal commitments and making sure nothing falls through the cracks, you can barely find time for lunch some days, let alone browsing through the latest tech goodies. This winter, let our holiday gift guide help with your shopping! Tech gifts for entrepreneurs offer a double dose of holiday cheer. They let your favorite people know you’re thinking of them, and your gift will help make their lives a little more efficient.
Eliminate the dreaded cord jungle
With electronics galore taking up space in a home office or cubicle, the cords tend to get out of control. You might not even notice until you need to take a conference call and realize your earbuds cord somehow wrapped itself around everything in your tote bag. Cord organizers won’t break the gift giving budget, but they’re definitely useful. We love these personalized ones from Sinever on Etsy ($27).
Everyone can use more power
Power strips can turn any room into your home office. They’re not always attractive, but they allow you to plug in, recharge, and print from anywhere. Help your tech lover maximize their space by gifting one of the Quirky Pivot Power Outlets ($73). They bend, flex, and fit into the smallest spaces, while still accommodating bulky plugs, which makes them an integral part of an efficient office.
Stay charged on the go
We know. We suggested a cord holder, which is perfectly capable of keeping your charging cable neat and organized. However, if you’re like us and always trying to snag a cord from other family members, hide your own right on your keychain with the Leather Tassel Charging Cable ($60).
Take your live videos to the next level
Social media trends keep highlighting live video as an underused tool for engagement, but we know it can be intimidating. After all, keeping a camera stable isn’t always as easy as it seems. This Polaroid Cube+ Live Streaming Camera has both wi-fi and image stabilization, making it both useful and fun to use, even when you’re on the move ($150).
Pouches keep you organized
Cords aren’t the only thing getting lost in the bottom of your tote bag. We don’t know what we would do without a variety of pouches to keep things together. They’re even better than pockets in a bag, because they make it simple to swap necessities between bags, purses, and the top of our desk. For obvious reasons, we’re partial to this Paper Airplane Carry-All Pouch (starting at $17).
Keep headaches away with plenty of water
With a to-do list a mile long, many entrepreneurs don’t pause for water breaks. That can lead to headaches, which leads to a long afternoon. Water bottles always make fantastic gifts. Aluminum ones are a perennial favorite, but the BKR glass bottles hold a special place in our hearts. We even gave them as a client holiday gift a couple of years ago! This Big Grace Kiss Set comes with a lip balm, a sweet little bonus ($59).
Tune out the rest of the world
Small business owners work on the go all the time, from restaurants to airplanes. Most of the time, ambient noise fades into background, but sometimes you need a quiet space to think and focus. The Bose QuietControl 30 Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones might be a splurge, but they definitely offer the opportunity to truly focus, which means more time with family and friends ($300).
