The Working From Home Holiday Gift Guide

The Working From Home Holiday Gift Guide

Small business owners are, by definition, fairly self-reliant, which can make them notoriously difficult to shop for. With the holidays just around the corner, support the entrepreneur in your life with a meaningful gift to help improve their workday.

Thanks to quarantine, many normally office-bound small business owners find themselves working from living rooms and kitchen tables. An enjoyable, efficient environment to work in is essential to entrepreneurs. This holiday season, help the self-starters in your life with some nice things to liven up their makeshift workspace. This guide will give you some ideas for priceless products to promote productivity for your peerless producer.

Get Their Sound Going With a Smart Speaker

A speaker assistant is an excellent investment for those whose office has become a desk at home. A quality speaker provides great sound for Zoom meetings, business calls, and background music.

Smart speakers like the Google Home also make life easier with voice-command capabilities, including setting timers, checking the weather, scheduling your calendar, and other efficient features. This little device saves lots of time, so your entrepreneur can focus on creating their business.

Liven Up Their Desk Decor

To an entrepreneur used to a proper office, a folding table in the garage just won't feel like a personalized workspace. Gifting a piece of decor to spice up their makeshift area adds a bit of personality back into their workday. A pleasing to the eye workspace helps improve mental health and productivity.

Maybe a small desk plant could add a bit of life. Creative prints in their favorite color, collectible figurines from their favorite movie, or little decorations that make them happy can boost morale throughout the day. Inspiring quotes and handmade gifts remind them of you and your support during these challenging times.

Help Them Schedule With a Planner

Some may consider it old school, but one way to keep motivation up is to write out anything you need to do for the day, week, or month. Looking at your tasks and goals directly, on paper, helps the mind stay organized and able to manage time wisely. Entrepreneurs make their own schedule and hold themselves accountable to keep their business running. Giving an entrepreneur a planner is a great way to show your interest in their business' success.

Fight Discomfort With an Ergonomic Chair or Cushion

Even the brightest minds can't fully function if the body is in discomfort. Whatever their work situation was before, it's essential to keep the body comfortable now that so many hours are spent sitting at a computer for meetings. An ergonomic office chair can help ease back pain and make working from home more enjoyable.

However, a good office chair can be expensive. If that's out of your price range, even a simple cushion to sit on, a back pillow, or neck support pillow can help keep them comfortable while working on their hustle from home.

After suffering for months from whatever unergonomic house chair they're using for full-time support, these entrepreneurs' bodies will thank you for making the go-to computer position slightly more bearable.

Protect Against Computer Fatigue With Blue Light Glasses

Thanks to the pandemic, an average workday for many people involves endless hours of virtual meetings and other online collaborative tasks. Staring at a screen all day can ultimately lead to headaches and eye strain. A pair of blue light glasses help protect eyes from hours of unfiltered screen time.  

Elevate Their Space With an Air Diffuser or Wall Plug-In

An entrepreneur's at-home workspace should be as enjoyable as possible, even down to the smell of the room. Certain scents such as lavender, peppermint, and jasmine can help improve focus and determination. Give your entrepreneur a pleasant, fragrant work-from-home experience while they pursue their business goals.

Encourage Focus With Headphones

A good pair of noise-canceling headphones can help tune out the many distractions sharing your home space when working from home. Kids running around, pets needing attention, and any other commotion in the house can distract from the tasks at hand for the day. A reliable pair of headphones focuses attention on work and makes the day-to-day experience more enjoyable.

Build Up Their Home Coffee Station

Small business owners are known for burning the candle at both ends, which is why they tend to be coffee fiends. With offices moving to living rooms, your entrepreneur's coffee runs have likely shifted from Starbucks to their own kitchen. Give the gift of caffeine to perk up their morning or ease their late-night grind. Options include local beans, K-cups, their favorite flavor of syrup, fancy tea, or even a personal mug to make them laugh or motivate them and brighten their morning.

Sharpen Skills With Online Classes

There are many resources available online to help with every aspect of starting a business. With the pandemic, we have more time to slow down and gain knowledge in new places. Tips and advice from other experienced business owners can be the final step needed to turn your entrepreneur's genius idea into a profitable venture. Give the gift of knowledge this year to help make their business the best it can be.

Show Your Support
