It doesn’t seem to matter what I’m reading this week, whether it’s social media or just my news feed, I’m surrounded by Top 10 Gift Lists (top 10 gifts for teens, for your dog, for your “Secret Santa”), which got me thinking about entrepreneurs and what they may be wishing for this season!
So, we decided to have a little fun this week and compile our own top 10!
PMA’s Top 10 Gifts for Entrepreneurs
- NeatReceipts – I recently read about this and was instantly fascinated! If there is one goal I set for myself every year (read: set the goal, never accomplish!), its to keep better track of my business finances. Brilliant!
- Super Power Charger – The Charge Hub! – I always forget to charge my phone, and yet I feel like I’m using it constantly to keep in touch with clients. But it never fails that both my phone and tablet are low, at the same time! LOVE this charging hub!
- Tile – I work in coffee shops a lot. It’s a great change in scenery, but, I am constantly forgetting my purse! I pack up my laptop grab my phone, BUT my purse (and wallet) get left behind. So, I love my Tile, it’s save the day, more than once!
- Instant Pot – Now this is a bit of a sensation right now even though it originally debuted back in 2010. This past Black Friday, Amazon.com was preparing for a potential of 500,000 orders. This kitchen gadget is a massive time saver after a busy day. If you haven’t heard about it, check it out!
- UPS Battery Backup and Surge Protector – I recently invested in one like this myself. I host a lot of virtual events, that are being moderated off my laptop; if my power goes off I lose my internet connection instantly, and even if there is a slight “flicker” in power, my modem takes forever to reboot, which means that everyone is disconnected from the call I was hosting. I needed to be proactive and solve this problem BEFORE I needed it.
- Starbucks gift cards – Look into the eyes of any entrepreneur and you’ll know why this is on the list!
- The Ember Coffee Mug –I LOVE coffee, and for the life of me I can’t keep a cup of coffee hot. This mug is beautiful and keeps your coffee the perfect temperature.
- A Zen Garden – I saw this and thought – PERFECT! – I never remember to water my plants, and would love to learn how to tend a bonsai garden, but who’s kidding who, it won’t last a month. Just the meditative act of tending a garden seems to really appeal to me, which makes this garden perfect! Rocks and sand, no living elements – what could go wrong!
- Any entrepreneur will tell you that multi-tasking becomes a way of life, so why not invest in a Roomba and have your vacuuming done for you!
- Sunlight desk lamp – There are a bunch of these on the market, and quite honestly, I’m thinking of getting one myself. Like everyone, I spend too much time at my desk, and not enough time outside. Great lighting at your workspace is essential – so why not get a little vitamin D at the same time!
We’ve shared some of our favorite items – what’s on your list? (feel free to post this up on your fridge for a subtle/not-so-subtle hint to your loved ones!)
