The Creative Entrepreneur's Gift Guide by Dubsado
It’s that time of year! Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your noise.
With that comes the joys (and pains) of gift giving. You know you could just wing it with a gift card or socks, but you’re better than that. You want to get something special for the people that matter! The thing is, a lot of the people in your life (yourself included) may have leaped into entrepreneurship recently and you might be thinking “how do I best spread holiday cheer to all those creative entrepreneurs?”
Well, fear not. Dubsado is here with a handy guide to some fun, practical and inspiring gifts you might consider! In no particular order (and with no sponsored items) here is our Creative Entrepreneur's Gift Guide for 2018!
Ethical fashion is the way of the future, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring. People want high quality, stylish and comfortable clothing that they can feel good about, and All Birds is bringing all of those things to the table! They've got modern, wool shoes that are sleek, soft and surprisingly cool and warm when you need them to be. They also offer other clothing items to keep you looking good from head to toe!
We’ve talked with them on our podcast, but have you taken the time to check out the incredibly stylish, practical and unique products from Atlas Supply Co? If you wanna make a splash, go all out with a leather bag for that mobile entrepreneur in your life! Any photographers need a new camera strap? They have you covered with those and so much more! This is a dream gift for any entrepreneur! Need some stocking stuffers? Check out their new line of air fresheners at Belairfresh.co!
You know what is better than looking stylish? Looking stylish AND protecting your eyesight at the same time. With business continuing to transition online, we spend more time than ever looking at our screens. That’s more time than ever being exposed to blue light, the light that those screens give off. Heightened exposure to blue light CAN have repercussions; that’s where Felix Gray comes in. They designed stylish glasses that also act as blue light filters! Perfect for your office or when you're working on the go!
The Giving Keys is a company with an incredible vision and heart. You may recognize them on the countless celebrities who rock their signature necklaces, but did you know that The Giving Keys employs people transitioning out of homelessness? The Key is stylish, helps to support those in need AND acts as a pay it forward vehicle. Each Key comes with a word; the idea is to find someone in need of that word, pass your key to them and share the story! I’ve proudly rocked several keys and couldn’t recommend it enough!
When it’s crunch time and that deadline is approaching, who doesn’t bust out their favorite playlist? Or what about when you’ve got a few shots to edit? We spend a lot of time listening to our favorite music or podcasts, why not do it comfortably? If you’re looking for amazing noise-canceling headphones, try out this option from Bose! Personally, I'm a huge fan of Audio Technica! They offer high-quality headphones that won’t break the bank! I rock the Audio Technica ATH-M50x!
Hydroflask is all the rage this year and for good reason! It’s sleek, durable and keeps your liquids at the perfect temperature! Whether you need that coffee to stay hot, or that water to stay chilled, the Hydroflask is the perfect gift for that entrepreneur on the go! Perfect for the mountains or your office!
If you're like us, you're kinda obsessed with Chip and Joanna Gains. So when Target announced a limited time, an exclusive line of Magnolia products, the world had a collective freak out. This beautiful line of home products have quickly become favorites with content creators. Get something that will look good in the home and on that insta feed.
More people are working entrepreneurial lifestyles, but we’re also seeing an increased awareness regarding general health and wellness. I mean, we all love a stop at In-N-Out around here, but most of the time, we try and keep our bodies fueled by the good stuff. That sentiment has seen the rise of delivery meal prep services! Services like Blue Apron will deliver fresh ingredients to your home on a subscription model! That way, busy entrepreneurs can cut right to the chase of preparing delicious, healthy, home-cooked meals!
The Moleskin notebook has been a staple of creatives for years now. It’s held our precious thoughts and exciting ideas, but now, it’s been taken to another level! The Evernote Business Notebook allows you to take your notes, then capture and transfer those notes into digital versions, quickly and easily! It’s amazing and we can’t get enough! Help give a creative’s journaling repertoire a high tech upgrade!
You can’t go wrong with this one. We’ve talked a bit about being mobile entrepreneurs and the importance of our phones, so it would make sense to have every available fail safe to keep them alive. Every entrepreneur would be happy to have an easy to use and highly convenient portable charger to make sure they can stay effective no matter where they are!
We've said it before but we'll say it again: There is just something nice about writing things down. Simplified Planners make organizing fun, easy and stylish! Seeing my life at a glance, in a beautiful place, is such a confidence booster on a busy schedule. Plus, Emily Ley's new non-spiral planners are amazing!
Another feature on our Podcast, Yellow began as a life changing 3-day creative conference in Los Angeles and has since expanded to a full-blown membership society. Whether you get that creative entrepreneurial woman in your life a ticket to their stunning conference or a membership for the year that includes all the perks and gifts you can imagine, you can’t go wrong with inspiring them through Yellow! They have local chapters all over the world for members and are empowering creative entrepreneurship in ways we love!
You knew it would be here, because you know how game changing it’s been. For new or experienced entrepreneurs, a good CRM can be revolutionizing for their business AND personal life. So, why not gift them a subscription to the best? We believe no one empowers creative entrepreneurs like Dubsado, so give someone the gift that will actually keep on giving to them. Dubsado will help that entrepreneur book more clients, sell more services and save more time than they could ever imagine! Not a bad way to kick off the new year!
