Christmas is just around the corner, and I know my work from home friends probably have a lot of home business related gift ideas. If you know someone who works from home, or if you do and are still looking for Christmas gift ideas to pass on to your friends and family, here are a few Christmas gift ideas for people who work from home.
- A subscription to Entrepreneur magazine – This magazine is full of information and tips for people who run their own business, and for people who are interested in starting their own business. If you know someone who’s interested in starting their own business, or who already has their own business, this would be a great gift for them.
- If you know someone who likes to draw or sketch, this electronic sketch pad would be a great gift. It has a stylus that’s pressure-sensitive, so if you like to draw, your drawings will come out showing the different amounts of pressure you’ve applied to create different shades. In addition, it includes a USB cable that you can attach to your computer and transfer your drawings and documents.
- A portable hard drive -This is a must-have for anyone who works from home because it allows you to back up you work to the hard drive. That way if your documents will be safe in the event your computer crashes. It’s also a great way to transfer files from one computer to another if you want to have them on two computers – for example, if you have a desktop and a laptop, you can use the portable hard drive to transfer your important files from your desktop to your laptop.
Join Vindale Research, the famous survey site where you earn rewards to share your experiences about how you use the internet.
- A bulletin board or dry erase board is a great gift for people who like to have their to do list right in front of them, have a place to jot down notes, or have a place to tack up pictures or important things without putting extra holes in the wall.
- A laser mouse or bluetooth mouse is a great gift idea for the person who’s trying to reduce the number of cords on their desk, or for someone who wants a cordless mouse to use with their laptop.
- Since many people who work from home are also trying to eat healthy, this healthy snack gift basket could be another great idea. It contains healthy snacks like juice, granola bars, fruit snacks, nuts and trail mix among other things. It’s available in three different sizes – small, medium and large, however the price shown is for the medium-size gift basket. If you do phone work like me, however, be careful that you’re not munching while you’re on the phone!
- Another thing that’s important to many people who work from home is properly maintaining their computer on the outside as well as making sure software maintenance is done on a regular basis. Therefor another good gift idea might be a computer cleaning kit that includes screen cleaning wipes as well as compressed air to clean in between the keys on the keyboard, and also to clean the dust off the internal parts of the hard drive.
These are just a few good gift ideas for people who work from home – I would be interested to hear any other ideas that my work from home friends have.
