‘Tis the season… of having no idea what to get for the people in your life.
Hey, give us some slack. If “gift-giving” is a love language, it makes sense that some of us feel lost in translation.
Good news for you, we asked our team to recommend the best gifts for the entrepreneurs, freelancers, and small business owners in your life. (For the record, this list is not sponsored.)
And as long as we’re here, don’t forget that Santa can also gift LIFETIME DEALS on powerful software in the AppSumo store.
Kitchen Gear & Delicacies
Cheers to new kitchen gadgets, snacks, and libations!
Bodum Travel Press | $19.99 | “French press is great, what is not great is waiting around until it’s ready to drink. Nobody got time for that. Stop standing around, just run out the door with some hot water in your Bodum Travel Press and plunge after a few minutes. Good to go.” – Jarrett
Instant Pot | $119 | “Love to cook but don’t have time for an elaborate meal M-F? Make delicious meals in no time.” – Ashley
Buc-ee’s Famous Beaver Nuggets | $10 | “The best snack of all time.” – Brandon
Botanist Gin | $40 | “Super flavorful thanks to the double amount of ingredients used compared to other gins. Pair this with Dolin dry vermouth to make a truly exceptional martini.” – Julien
Hidrate Spark 2.0 Water Bottle | $49.95 | “The hustlin’ entrepreneur in your life probably needs some assistance with self-care. The Hidrate Spark 2.0 Smart Water Bottle tracks water intake and glows to remind you to stay hydrated.” – Mel
Innovation, vision, strategy… it’s all starts with getting good zzz’s.

Casper Foam Pillow | $119 | “Great pillow.” – Chelsea
Gadgets to help entrepreneurs solve their everyday problems (and have a little fun):

It’ll wake you up in the morning, turn on your lights, tell you your schedule, play you a diddy, and even set your alarm for the next day! Perfect for the entrepreneur in your life that could benefit from some external organization and an automated routine.” – Candice
Is there anything more 2019 than streaming?
Fire Stick | $24.99 | “With the streaming wars just beginning, the Fire Stick almost feels like a necessity. The entrepreneur in your life already has a lot on their plate—they don’t need to be buying new TVs or dongles to keep up with the times.” – Chris G.
Disney+ | $7 | “From Disney Channel Original Movies (DCOMs if you’re in the know) to the oldies we grew up on, this is the perfect way to bring home the classics this year!” – Ilona
Finally, all the cool gifts that don’t fit into a single category:

Red Wing Blacksmith Boots | $299 | “My great uncle was a traveling doctor who lived to 97. His #1 piece of advice? Take care of your feet and wear good shoes. I’ve been wearing these Red Wing boots just about every day for the past three years and have been very happy with them.” – Chris S.

Herschel Laptop Sleeve | $39.99 | “Let’s face it: Entrepreneurs probably spend more time with their laptops than with anything (or anyone) else.
