Gift Guide for the Creative Girlboss

With Christmas just around the corner, you may find yourself struggling to figure out what gift to get that special girlboss in your life. She works incredibly hard, and you want to make sure you get her something that she will love! So I thought today, I’d put together a list of some of my favorite gifts ideas for the the creative business owner!

1. Custom Notebook or Planner from MayDesigns

It’s no secret that I love MayDesigns. Their custom notebooks and planners are so much fun! If you’re getting this as a gift for a girlboss, choose from tons of patterns that will fit their personality the best. Then customize the front with their name, a monogram, or their favorite quote! Finish their notebook by customizing the inside pages. For the average girlboss, consider a calendar or “To-Do” list theme. If you’re splurging, throw in an adorable folio for your girlboss to hold all of their notebooks! They will love it!

2. Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is for the girlboss on the go, and is perfect for photographers, bloggers, and educators! With her watch, your girlboss will be able to keep track of calendars, events, reminders, and timelines (if she’s a photographer) for the day! It’s also perfect for staying in touch with clients with the ability to respond immediately to calls or texts straight from your watch. Make sure you get a band that is the perfect color for her brand!

3. Custom Fotostrap

This is the perfect gift for any girlboss with a camera, which includes bloggers, photographers, boutique owners, and so many others! The Fotostrap comes in a variety of colors, making it easy to find the perfect one! Consider choosing a strap that works with their brand, or maybe get them their favorite color. Sweeten the deal by adding personalization to the strap. You can add their monogram, or even send in an image of their logo. Foto will engrave the design into the leather strap, making it a great gift for the holidays!

4. Can Cooler (or ANYTHING) from All She Wrote Notes

Personally, I’m obsessed with everything from All She Wrote Notes, so you honestly can’t go wrong with any gift from this shop! Maghon provides a huge variety of products featuring her unique style of calligraphy. Personally, I’m obsessed with her “Cheer’s Ya’ll” can coolers, which I keep in my office and use daily. They come in a wide variety of colors, so you can get the perfect one for your girlboss! These would also make amazing stocking stuffers!

5. Calligraphy Mug from Chalkfulloflove

Again, I am obsessed with all things calligraphy, so it should come as no surprise that there is another calligraphy item on this list. This time, it’s a mug from Chalkfulloflove. You can’t go wrong with any of Sarah’s adorable calligraphy mugs, though my current personal favorites are the “Get Cozy,” “Sweater Weather,” and “Merry Christmas Ya’ll” mugs. I don’t care if a lot of them are seasonal — I use mine all year!!

6. Starbucks Gift Card

Do NOT underestimate the power of a little gift card…we small business owners ALWAYS appreciate a Starbucks gift card. No only is it a nice little treat for us, but most of us practically live on coffee (especially during the fall months). The only time I end up drinking coffee is if I go to a Starbucks where I can get a “froufrou” coffee (as my father-in-law likes to call them), so it’s even perfect for a rare coffee drinker like me!

7. Bouquet from FarmGirl Flowers

Want to brighten someone’s day? Or send a wonderful gift straight to someone’s doorstep? If so, order a gorgeous bouquet from FarmGirl Flowers! They have unique arrangements that are all beautifully presented and carefully wrapped in burlap. Trust me, your girlboss will ADORE this gift! And as an added bonus — her house will smell incredible for a week!FarmGirl Flowers Bouquet | Emily Moore Photo

8. Gift Card to the SC Stockshop

Again, don’t underestimate the power of a gift card. The SC Stockshop is a great tool for girlbosses to show off their products and do business beautifully. They can be used for marketing, social media, blog posts and websites — the possibilities are endless! These images are more expensive than your average stock image website, so a gift card in any amount helps your girlboss get the images she’s been dying to get!

9. Wooden Mountain Photo Holder from Shophumble

I discovered this little Etsy shop from a post in the Rising Tide Society facebook group a few years ago, and I just HAD to have this. These little mountain photo holders are handmade and come in a variety of different colors, making them the perfect accessory to any office! They also have them available in natural wood colors for the minimalist girlboss. You can buy them individually or in a set of three.
