Do you have blogger friends and loved ones in your life and you don’t know what you can give them as a way to say that you support their blogs? I’ve compiled a few ideas here that any blogger would appreciate to receive any time of the year.
Domain and Hosting
What blogger doesn’t want this? If your blogger friend has been blogging a while and is thinking of taking it to the next level, hosting and domain would definitely light up her eyes! It’s a blogger’s dream to be self-hosted and having a .com suffix to their blog name. It’s like the blogger version of a start-up business that’s been gifted with a brick-and-mortar store. Who wouldn’t love to receive that, right?
Prices for domain and hosting can go up to hundreds of dollars per year though. But with a little research I found a hosting company that’s pretty easy on the wallet (I swear, I’m practically a broke mama who doesn’t have much to spare) and it’s what I’m using to host my blog. Check out the prices here.
A Pretty Theme
That’s like the storefront of your brick-and-mortar store. And who doesn’t want that to reflect what their store is about? Similar to blogs, a pretty theme helps in the branding (is it feminine, minimalist, boho chic?) and makes for a good user experience. There are a lot of options out there for every kind of blogger. This one from Angie Makes is worth looking into if your friend likes a feminine aesthetic.
USB OTG (on-the-go) / Lightning Flashdrive
Bloggers usually take a ton of photos, and if your blogger friend is still new to blogging, she’s probably still using her phone to take pictures. You know what usually happens? We run out of space real quick. This is where an OTG comes in handy. We just pop the device into our phones and transfer the files to create more space and be able to take more photos. Seriously, this is the only thing in my Christmas wish list this year. I need one very badly.
Hell yes! You can’t go wrong with this one! Every blogger needs one, even the ones who say they can get by with just a notebook. A blog planner makes for a very organized blogging with allocations for blog post ideas, work-in-progress, schedules, images, and social media.
I’ve been using a notebook and my phone’s notes and reminder list to organize all my blogging tasks and I would really love to have them all in one notebook and easily digestible in just one glance.
This one from Stray Curls is so cute. It’s actually a free printable with an option on paying a small amount to receive all 45 pages!
Have I already mentioned that taking blog photos take up a ton of time for a blogger? Help her cut down time and frustration by gifting her gorgeous props to jazz up her flatlays.
Granite and marble-inspired accessories are always a good choice. ‘Stone’ has been popular to use in flat lays and it doesn’t seem to be going away soon. Other materials that look luxe and create contrast is also a good idea.
See how Myra always slays her flatlays with the use of marble trays, faux fur, and flowers? Any blogger would love to take and post stunning images like this.
So those are five things I would recommend for anyone looking for ideas on what to gift bloggers. Hopefully you were able to get a few ideas and that your blogger friend/s would be so happy with it.
Anyway, as a bonus, I am giving away a free Christmas gift tag printable to go with your gifts. Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!
