If I had to make a starter pack for the creative entrepreneur, it would include comfy athleisure, cozy desk candles, inspiring business books, & pretty desk supplies to name a few. If you have a small business owner in your life, this entrepreneur gift guide is for you. And of course if you’re a entrepreneur yourself, then just go ahead and add to cart or pass this list along to your loved ones. You’ll thank me later 😉
Enjoy my tried & true roundup of gift ideas for the creative entrepreneur. Here’s to a Christmas filled with inspiring & useful gifts that will last you all year!
Magnolia Magazine Subscription : Receiving a Magnolia Journal Issue in the mail might just be the definition of happy mail. Love flipping through this inspiring read… Jo can do no wrong when it comes to designing a beautiful life.
Stanley Quencher Mug : Pretty sure I couldn’t consider this a creative entrepreneur gift guide without one. Every work from home desk needs a Stanley. And of course, the more colors in your collection the better.
Black Leggings : The perfect black leggings are the power suit of the entrepreneur and these Lululemon dupes are amazing (I own several pair!). A great pair of stretchy leggings is a must for long days at the desk writing emails, blogs, and for conquering all the awesome, important things we do as entrepreneurs on the reg.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones : A must for team skidmore. Love these headphones for getting in the zone & batching out some work. Love the white smoke color.
Arobox Subscription : The temptation to sneak out your phone when working from home is real. After having Arobox Founder Heath Wilson on the podcast, I’m truly obsessed with this product. A simple, creative, & aesthetically pleasing way to limit your screen time.
Elevate Utility Bag : Every entrepreneur needs a pretty leather work bag & this utility bag by Elevate is a must! Handcrafted by artisans in India, it works as a tote, crossbody and backpack all-in-one (plus room for a 13in laptop). Be on the lookout for Founder of Elevate Jessica Hotz on the podcast soon!
Make Life Beautiful book : One of my favorite books of 2023 & such an inspiring read, perfect for this creative entrepreneur gift guide.
Striped Lake Pajamas : Is there anything better than a slow morning from the couch sipping coffee in your pjs and working from home? While I don’t recommend always working in your pjs, sometimes it’s a guilty pleasure. These striped gems by Lake are Team Skidmore approved.
Metal Candle Tray : This brushed brass candle tray is perfect for your desk & displaying all of those candles you may or may not be writing off 😉
Big White Yeti Candle : I’m pretty sure this candle has made the list on every single one of my gift guides this year. For good reason because it smells amazing and supports a great small business! Get it, you won’t regret it! 8 oz, glass jar. Pair it with these brass wick trimmers for a sweet gift!
Cute Timer : You know I’m all about productivity & time tracking. This cute timer (love the sandy peach) is perfect for increasing productivity while you work.
Eye Mask for better sleep : Optimizing your sleep as an entrepreneur is so helpful when it comes to brainstorming, creating, & managing a business. I love this lightweight and contoured eye mask for catching those precious Zs.
Mug Warmer : A practical gift the entrepreneur in your life is sure to love. This mug warmer is a life saver for limiting those trips to the microwave to reheat your coffee… Can’t slow down this work flow.
L’Occitane Almond Hand Cream : A nice hand cream to keep in the desk, especially for the winter months!
In Kind Magazine : This beautifully curated bi-annual magazine is a recent favorite of mine. Designed to touch on the conversations modern women are having about motherhood, career, ambition, personal style, and more. Such a lovely gift for the entrepreneur in your life & perfect for displaying on the coffee table!
Stories from the Influencer Next Door : Rounding out our entrepreneur gift guide with this beautifully designed read. Love this coffee table book for the creative entrepreneur. Perfect for display in a home office.
