The Totally Legitimate Guide to Buying Gifts for your Favorite Blogger this Holiday Season

Now that Christmas is jus a mere 35 days away (not five, like the Target holiday section would have you believe), it's time to start thinking about... Christmas presents! Shopping for Christmas presents is hard enough as it is, but shopping for a blogger is even more difficult. They have such specific, ever-changing tastes, and you want to get them something good, because, well... it's probably going to end up on their blog. So what's a person to buy? Here are some helpful suggestions:

Bloggers love coffee. Bloggers REALLY love fair trade coffee from local coffee shops, but since you can't hunt down each blogger's favorite place, Starbies will have to do. You can think of a Starbucks gift card as the gift that keeps on giving, as each gift card will result in at least five sepia-toned coffee photos. That's what I call a win-win situation. Also? bloggers LOVE pumpkin spice lattes. (Send an e-gift card and save on shipping.)
Bloggers love being organized. Even more than being organized, they love talking about how organized they are. Cue Erin Condren Life planners, the Mother of All Planners (TM). With this, your favorite blogger can keep all of her work, personal and blog things in the same place. Sure, it's huge, but bloggers love big totes and they cannot lie, so the size is fine. Plus, you can monogram them. And what do bloggers love more than planners? MONOGRAMS.

This is an especially good gift if the blogger is your wife/girlfriend/sister/best friend, because anyone who spends time with a blogger knows that anything (no really, ANYTHING) can end up on the internet. Even though a lot of bloggers keep their blogs a secret, they would still love a tshirt. Trust me on this one.
Most bloggers have blogs because they missed their calling in a more interesting, more fabulous profession. You can deny it, but it's totally true. Also, there's nothing bloggers love more than interesting decor they can highlight during their house tour vlogs.

Sure, a blog is KINDA like a journal, but sometimes you need a place to put your innermost thoughts, AKA all the things that are too scandalous for the public. This is a guided journal, so you you can leave the content creation for your blog. Also, all of us bloggers are a little unhinged, right? A journal called "My Dysfunctions" would be a great gift for any of us.

Bloggers love champagne. Okay, bloggers love drinking in general, but they ESPECIALLY love champagne. Also, jewelry. That genius Kate Spade combined the two into one affordable earring set! Buy a pair for you, and a pair for your favorite blogger. These would be perfect for New Years.

haha that pillow is hilarious! I saw a mousepad that said "I'm not a player, I just blog a lot" and I want it!

I drank the Erin Condren kool-aid and I so regret it. I mean I do legit want a Starbucks card because I have an addiction, but that is far too boring of a gift to receive from a fellow blogger. It would have to come in a pinterest-inspired gift card carrier, obviously.

Duh! Danae said...

I might buy that pillow for myself!

That T-Shirt is too funny! The pillow is adorable too! Great gift ideas!

Treasure Tromp said...

Meg Doherty said...

Oh yes, I do think Erin Condren is going to be on my Christmas list this year!

Beginning with Becca said...

Oh my gosh I want all of these things! I might have to send this list out to the people who have asked me for one this year! :)

Jessa Olson said...

I need everything on this list... This is the best list ever.. I wish I could find a good planner that didn't cost so much that I could keep everything organized..

I asked for that pillow for Christmas. I hope Santa brings it.
