Gift Ideas for Marketing & Branding Gurus
If you have a friend of family member who’s an agency addict and are struggling to find a gift, here are a few things we know we’d like to receive.
For the creative thinker: Stretch Mind-Strong
When the creative juices aren’t flowing, make sure your creative-guru has something to help “put their gray matter to work.” Stretch Mind-Strong is an interactive paperweight / malleable eraser that stretches even the most creative mind to new heights. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a great Oliver Wendell quote.
For the business-savvy: Spa Day
This person is always reading, doing, and likely doesn’t take time to stop and relax. Giving this person a day at the spa, or even just a massage, will be just what they need—and it’s likely something they wouldn’t think about getting themselves.
For the obsessively organized: Date Book
Whether they’re planning an office event or scheduling a dinner date, this person is constantly writing things down. And since they already have the organizing down to a science, give the gift of sanity with a large date book. We like this gold one from PaperSource.
For the social media mogul: #hashtag chalkboard
Witty social media banter can keep someone glued to the computer screen for far too long. That’s why we recommend this nifty #hashtag chalkboard. It’s a great way to bring two worlds back together—plus it looks great.
For the mobile multi-tasker: powermat charger
This person is constantly “on” and on the go, checking emails, responding to client emergencies, and overall solving the world’s problems. All that hard works wears down a battery, so keep them on the move—and not tied to outlets—with a powermat charger. Alternatively, we recommend a mobile hot spot.
For the developer and tech-obsessed: Wi-Fi detector shirt
Just because this person knows how to use technology better than your average Joe, it doesn’t mean he or she wants to boot up a laptop or phone to check if there is available Wi-Fi only to be let down. Instead, this shirt acts as a Wi-Fi detector, lighting up as the signal strength fluctuates.
For the copywriter: Dragon Naturally Speaking
This person appreciates the little things—like commas, em dashes, and the ever-used-incorrectly apostrophe. And while next year’s version of the AP Style book is an easy gift, it’s likely that this person has already backordered it. Instead, get them something they can really use: Dragon Naturally Speaking. Writers can brainstorm out loud, and speak their ideas before starting to write.
