A Blogger Gift Guide

It's finally December!  Can you believe it?  I can't.

It seems that time has just flown by this year and I've just been trying to keep up!  This month is going to be cuh-ray-zee because I'm working ridiculous hours (damn you retail job!) and trying to work on redesigning and promoting this little blog.  I'm also trying to start my own online clothing store as well as creating my own line of clutches, bags, and tops.  Those of you following me on Instagram may have seen the mini-clutch I created a couple weeks ago (here).

Anyway, now with Christmas literally right around the corner I'm stuck with an extremely long shopping list so instead of all of us going around and scratching our heads about what to get for whom, let's kick off this month with a gift guide!

I personally love "gift guide" posts because it just makes things so much easier for me and it also helps me to "think outside the box" to give my friends and family a truly unique gift.  And what better way to kick off the gift guides than a gift guide made especially for us bloggers!!

Blogger Gift Guide

Okay, some of you non-bloggers may be scratching your heads at this (*sigh*, they don't get it), so let me break it down for you:

1.  All bloggers, whether newbies or not, need to know a little coding and design.  It's pretty much the building blocks of a successful blog - because no matter how you try to flip it, people are gonna choose to read the pretty/clean blog over a dull/cluttered one.

2.  I wrote about these personalized crop tops before and I really cannot get enough of them!  This is a perfect gift for that fashion-forward blogger in your life.

3.  One word: PayPal.  EVERY blogger could use a little cash, and PayPal is a great way to show your favorite blogger a little support.  The money you transfer to their PayPal account can go towards purchasing ads, hosting giveaways, and getting a new blog makeover (which I'll get in to a little further down).

4.  A flexible tripod is a great gift for any blogger because it allows them to take photos and videos from angles and aspects that they wouldn't be able to with a regular tripod.  Great photos are the key to successfully shared posts!

5.  Our blog is our baby.  And just like any proud parent, we love to see our blog name/URL everywhere, so go on and get something customized for your blogger.

6.  Even you non-bloggers get a kick out of SomeEcards so this could be a neutral gift I guess.  We just love to use these in our posts!

7.  Bloggers are writers.  Sometimes we need to take a break from the computer and find a quiet place, away from technology, to gather our thoughts.  Give your blogger some time to unwind with a cute notebook to jot down some ideas, doodle, or just make lists (we LOVE making lists)...

8.  Giving your amazing blogger a custom design package is like giving her (or his) blog a spa day.  Custom design packages give bloggers a chance to make over their entire blog's look without having to do it all themselves.  These can get a little pricey, but they are an amazing investment.

Alright, so now you've got a Blogger Gift Guide from a blogger's perspective - you have no excuses left on what to get your favorite blogger.

P.S.  If you're a blogger, please feel free to share this with others as your wishlist - so they won't get it wrong this year!


  1. Cool! A gift guide just for us bloggers! These are all perfect! I love that dotty notebook and yes to Paypal :)

  2. these are perfect!! esp the designed theme/layout one. not a lot of people know how to code and rely on the pre-fab ones from their blogging platform so that would be a perfect gifft!
