With Christmas fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to buy your loved ones to bring a big smile to their faces on Christmas Day.
To help you on your quest to find the perfect presents, over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing a variety of gift guides to offer my pick of the best gift ideas. Whether you’re looking to splash the cash or working to a budget, there are ideas for every wallet.
To kick off my series of Christmas gift guides, I’m going to start with gift ideas for the blogger in your life…
1 // DSLR Camera, £various
A DSLR is one of the best tools a blogger can have. I have the Canon 5dmkiii and I absolutely adore it, however there are a number of cheaper alternatives that will do a brilliant job.
2 // Unique Life Planner by Pirongs, £20
Bloggers are super busy people, so a good planner is essential for staying on top of things. I can highly recommend a Unique Life Planner by Pirongs. Not only does it have a week-to-view format (ideal for bloggers), it also has ample space for scribbling down ideas, is small enough to fit in a handbag and is fully customisable. I’ve also teamed up with Pirongs to offer you a 15% discount code across their site using the code: HELLOBABY15.
3 // Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens for iPhone, £69.34
As much as I prefer using my DSLR for photos, it’s just not practical to lug it around all day. Thankfully the clever people at Olloclip have created this 4-in-1 Lens for the iPhone, that simply clips on and off your smartphone and offers a Fisheye lens, a Wide-Angle lens and 2 Macro lenses in one small, convenient package. The Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens works on both the front and rear facing cameras and it really does push the parameters of what’s possible in mobile photography.
4 // Little Lovely Company lightbox, £29
This Lightbox in A4 by A Little Lovely Company will not only look good in a little persons bedroom, nursery or play area, it’s also ideal for bloggers to display little messages on their instagram posts!
5 // Enjoy The Little Things Print, £13.95
A bold and stylish motivational typography print is just the ticket for a busy blogger.
6 // Portable External Hard Drive, £55.99
The blogger in your life can never have too many backups, so although this isn’t a particularly exciting choice, it’s a super handy present!
7 // LED Nail Lamp, £18.99
Bloggers love filling their Instagram feeds with their hands holding something, be it a small child or a cup of coffee. Therefore, a manicure would be the perfect present to ensure their nails look perfect and ‘camera ready’ day after day. To save the pennies on costly salon visits, why not buy the blogger in your life an LED lamp so they can master the perfect manicure at home.
8 // Small Pegboard, £30
Pegboards look super stylish and are the ideal addition to a home office.
9 //Blue Yeti USB Microphone, £99.99
Perfect for youtube videos, vlogging, voiceovers and podcasting, this USB microphone is the ultimate tool for creating amazing recordings, directly to your computer.
All you have to do is browse through instagram to see that bloggers are huge fans of succulents. It’s amazing how these small potted plants add a little pop of colour and texture to an otherwise ordinary photo.
