10 Things To Buy A Blogger For Christmas


I have been writing or blogging online since the early 2000’s. Receiving a present to help me enhance or complete a blog post is thrilling. That tells me, the gift giver was listening to me.

Here are 10 things you should put on your list to buy for the blogger in your life :


Notebooks / journals : A notebook or journal is important for a blogger. As it is where they place all their ideas they jot or write down. Many times a blogger will write down a rough draft in their notebook or journal before having it go live on a blog post.


Pens or pencils – Gifting pens or pencils of different colors are important tools for bloggers. As it allows the blogger to log different things down. Which can be found at a glance depending on the color. This works for anyone with OCD who likes to be organized. I prefer pens. As I think ink lasts longer on paper. Compared to lead.


Highlighters – Highlighters are a great tool for bloggers. As the blogger can cross off the topic or idea out of their notebook or journal. Still being able to see it, access it, as a way to review things when notebook / journal is complete or to go back and reference a part written down.


USB Flash drive – Those cute little portable USB flash drives are a great resource for any blogger to store articles, photos, idea, social media url’s, blog links, referral links, references and more.


Coffee cups – I tend to drink coffee or tea when I first wake up and start blogging. My favorite coffee cup was broke. I have yet to find a suitable replacement for it. I like to find a unique one that fits well in my hand. That is different from the ordinary coffee cup.


Single Snacks – I like to keep a stash of single snack near the area I am working at. Whether it is at my desk on my computer or sitting at a park blogging on my tablet. Snacks help me deter from over eating. I tend to choose healthy snacks. As I have type two diabetes. Depending on if my sugar is high or low depend son what snack I will eat. Snacks also help a blogger to shave off hunger while writing their blog. Instead of buying a greasy burger at the nearest fast food joint.


Throw blankets – Those small throw blankets you can as cheap as $3.00 from Wal-mart are a good present for any blogger. As in the colder regions of the world. A warm throw blanket can be used to keep a blogger’s feet or lap warm while blogging. If you can't get to Walmart, you can order off Amazon and get your blanket within two days with Amazon prime.


Gift certificate – You can buy a blogger a gift certificate in any amount for them to put towards their internet bill. Or help them get cable if they are blogging on nothing but wi-fi.


Amazon codes or Paypal – You can buy a blogger Amazon codes or donate to their Paypal. That way the blogger can buy something they want online. Or use it to buy items they can get cheap to review online.


Camera – This includes camera, camera accessories and or a camera bag. As all of these will help a blogger on their journey. As good quality photos are a must on any blog.
