The Christmas Gift Guides are out in full force with many trying to be a little different this year but what if you don’t want to buy a pair of fluffy socks?
There are some great subscription based gift ideas but I wanted to dig a little deeper to look into what was on offer across the internet and how these could translate as the perfect Christmas gift ideas for entrepreneurs.
I think I’ve done it.
I’m confident that all of these gifts will be well received by people who understand business, culture, a stress free life and the finer things in life. They’re brilliant gifts for entrepreneurs or for anyone looking to broaden their horizons and improve their home life.
Here’s my pick of the best out of the box gifts for him, for her and for you!
Who wouldn’t benefit from some personal tuition with one on one guitar lessons? This is a great gift for anyone, even those who have never tried to play an instrument. As they take their new lesson in the New Year, they will thank you for their thoughtfulness and with a great music teacher they’ll also have a wonderful social experience.
PPC or Adwords
It may seem like a strange gift but I know I would adore a voucher for a PPC agency in my stocking. Imagine, your friend’s blog, website or new endeavour could receive a boost in the New Year, when business slows down dramatically. What’s not to love? Talk to a PPC Agency and see what you could buy for Christmas, be it a full site boost or a one off consultation.
Personalised Number Plates
Even I would love a personalised number plate and I drive a little battered Yaris. A friend or loved one would adore opening this on Christmas morning. You can make it personal to the two of you or choose a registration you know they’ll love. It’s the gift that will keep on giving as they’ll think of you with a smile every time they take the car out.
Professional Dog Training
There’s a reason we’re advised against buying puppies for Christmas. Those that do usually seek a new home for the pup in January when the novelty wears off and they realise the puppy must be trained. Even the best behaved puppies and dogs could do with some improvement, whether it’s learning new tricks or having a brush up on the basics, such as toilet training or chewing. A session with a well respected dog behaviourist will be a gift your dog loving friend will adore, as a well trained pup makes for a much happier home.
Fame for Five Minutes
My job is to gain exposure for brands through my magazine articles and I will happily do this for a friend so they can see themselves on the cover of a digital magazine for a day, to share with their friends. Just get in touch and I’ll do the rest.
Have you ever bought a gift that’s out of the box? Let me know as I’d love to add it to my list!
