Have you got a blogging friend and need some ideas for gifts this year? Or are you a blogger and want a hint list to put under your partner’s nose?
Here are some ideas for presents to buy the blogger in your life.
Ticket to a blogging conference
A blogging conference is where bloggers meet each other, network with brands, and learn tips to help their blog develop and grow. They are usually very useful things to attend. From around £35 to £200. If the blogger in your life already has their eye on a particular conference, or has their ticket already, then what about gifting a hotel stay nearby the conference, or their train ticket so they can get there?
That Selfie Pro
Taking photos in winter can be a real problem, and many bloggers are (quite rightly) very proud of their photos and devastated when they come out all grainy due to the low light. So this little clip-on light diffuser can really improve selfies, and photos of things taken at a distance of up to 2m. 6 studio quality LEDs and 5600k colour temperature mean dimly lit selfies should be a thing of the past. £24.99 including free shipping, and guaranteed delivery in time for Christmas if you order now.
A good notebook
Sometimes a blogger is hit with inspiration when they don’t have access to a computer, so a notebook is really handy for logging down those ideas. There’s a huge range of notebooks out there, (this one’s from Happy Jackson) and you’re bound to find one that suits your blogger friend and your budget.
Earn bonus points if you gift this to a blogger trying to up their Pinterest game. This helps them to schedule pins and consequently have more of an online presence to their Pinterest followers. Then that increased visibility should translate into more people pinning their posts, and more traffic to their blog. Monthly subscription for $9 or an annual membership costs $104 if you get a referral code (worth $15).
I have some brilliant gloves that allow me to use my phone’s touchscreen without getting my fingers cold. Bloggers use social media whatever the weather, so keep your blogging friend cosy by gifting them some smart gloves (£9)!
A blogger might understand the need for this more than a non-blogger, but if your blogging friend has wordpress.com at the end of the address you type in the bar at the top of your browser, then they aren’t self-hosted. Being self-hosted can mean that bloggers could earn money from their blog, and basically just take it to the next level. Hosting can cost around £3-5 a month. For 10% off a hosting with TSOHost, use the code babyfoote10host (affiliate code).
Buying gifts for someone that already has everything makes it difficult. I hope that this gift guide helped you find the perfect gift idea for a blogger, whether they’ve been blogging for a while or are fresh out of the starting blocks.
