Is it just me, or is it basically impossible to think of something to say when people ask you what you want for the holidays?
Any other time of the year, I could tell you a dozen things I would want right off the top of my head. But when it’s the holiday season, I can’t seem to think of a single thing.
Well, today I’m getting a jump on that reoccurring problem by creating a gift guide for bloggers. I thought it would be fun to put together a list of things that either a). I want for blogging purposes or b). I have for blogging purposes.
There are a lot of fairly inexpensive things out there that could make great gifts for bloggers. That being said, here’s a few that I’ve found!
Marble vinyl – If there’s one thing bloggers love, it’s marble. You can never go wrong with an aesthetically-pleasing sheet of vinyl if you’re shopping for a blogger who takes flatlays. I can tell you from experience that there’s not much more exciting than breaking out a brand new background. It’s one of those things a blogger could always use.
Capture Your Style – Aimee Song’s “Capture Your Style” is great book for bloggers. It’s filled with useful information about developing a brand on Instagram, which is obviously one of the biggest platforms out there.
Reflector – Having a reflector makes it a lot easier to take bright blog photos on dreary days. I have this inexpensive one from Amazon, and it works wonders.
Cute journals – Stylish journals and notebooks make for some of the best blog props. They’re easy to put into a flatlay for that finishing touch.
Craft store gift card – This is again specific to bloggers who take flatlays. I frequently find myself running to the craft store to pick up things like doilies and confetti, as I’m certain many bloggers do. A gift card to your local craft store would definitely be of use to any blogger you know.
Planner – Having a planner can sometimes feel like a necessity as a blogger. Without having a place to write down post ideas, things can get pretty jumbled and confusing. A planner is a great gift because it can be both fun and practical.
Tripod– A tripod is a wonderful gift for a blogger because it can help simplify the photography process.
