Women might be the ones that typically take care of the household chores but they also are often the ones working hard early in the morning, during nap time, or late at night to make a little extra money for their families. If you’re close to a woman entrepreneur there are probably a lot of tools and extras that she would love to have that she either hasn’t thought about or doesn’t want to spend her money on this Christmas. Take a load off of her shoulders by providing some of that as a way to show her how much you support her and her business.
Rule the World Planner – Sugar & Type – $34
This Rule the World planner would be the perfect gift for a new boss. It’s got plenty of pages for her to record her daily and weekly tasks, as well as plan out her editorial calendar in the monthly pages. And no one can resist the gold foil design on the cover!
DreamDoer Calendar – Grace and Serendipity – $24
I love this desk calendar! It is perfect to sit on an easel on her desk keeping her apprised of what day of the week it is (which can be surprisingly easy to forget!). As well, the opposite side of each monthly calendar boasts a beautiful print of an encouraging message that she can frame or adorn her office walls with after using the calendar. The muted colors of this calendar are also going to coordinate with almost any office decor so you know that she’ll love displaying these pages on her desk. Gift them with an easel for the perfect #GirlBoss gift.
31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and Doer – Jenn Sprinkle – $15.99
I recently purchased this book for myself and I can’t wait to dive into it in the new year. After hearing Jenn Sprinkle on Jamie Ivey’s podcast I knew that I needed this book. It is made up of prayers and devotions by amazing women entrepreneurs of faith such as Jennie Allen, Lara Casey, and Holley Gerth. The variety of topics covered in this book touch every aspect of life as a dreamer and doer and works hard to move you toward their goal of “keep[ing] you tethered to your faith and to the Lord, who without His saving grace, all dreaming and doing is in vain.”
Naptime Hustler tee – Grace and Serendipity – $26+
If she’s a mom and an entrepreneur chances are good that at some point she has called herself a Naptime Hustler. Those who have walked this tightrope of entrepreneurship with little’s underfoot know that nap time is often packed to the brim with work calls and tasks before you drop it all to spend time with your babies. Remind her that you recognize this struggle and celebrate her with these gorgeous shirts. They are super soft American Apparel shirts and are available in three different colors. It will quickly become her go-to t-shirt to wear while she’s conquering the world one naptime at a time!
Start with Why – Simon Sinek – $9.26
This book is definitely on my Christmas list after hearing women that I admire over and over refer back to it during Stationery Academy this summer. I’ve heard that this is the book of his to start with so if she’s a new businesswoman she will appreciate your support of her dream and all the knowledge that she’ll learn while she reads. If she’s been in the business awhile you might try his newer book Leaders Eat Last.
#DesignLikeAGirl tee – KiraKira – $25
As you probably saw in my Mentor Monday post with Malena yesterday, KiraKira is a project that I’m passionate about. But even if purchasing one of these shirts didn’t support them I would still want one! Whether you’re looking at design from an engineering perspective or an artistic perspective this is the perfect shirt for her to wear when she’s knocking orders off of her to-do list. Make sure you note that these are ladies t-shirts and aren’t in unisex sizing so be aware of that when ordering.
Verse Cards for the Business Owner – Ashlee Proffitt – $18
This set of 8 Bible Verse cards would be the perfect Christmas gift for a businesswoman. Not only are they beautiful and come with an acrylic stand to display in her office, but they “[bring] a daily reminder of the beauty, joy and gift that being a business owner is.” These cards are 3×3″ so are small enough to stick in a stocking but are perfect as a gift on their own as well.
Business Planning Cards – Grace and Serendipity – $21
These planning cards will quickly turn into a daily must have for the #GirlBoss in your life. Made up of three cards — hashtag list, social media plan, and blog planner — these cards cover the necessities of life as a businesswoman today. And if she’s using any of the most popular planners, the planner insert option snaps into the coils of the planners making them easily transportable. Pair them with a new pack of dry erase markers and you’ve got a gift that she’ll be crazy about.
Custom Stamp for Small Business – Hello World Paper Co – $14.95+
I shared about the lovely return address stamps that Hello World Paper Co does in the holiday gift guide, but today I want to share about their custom stamps for small businesses. I have had getting a stamp made with my logo on it on my to-do list for a long time but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I bet there are other businesswomen that are in the same place as me and would love a stamp for their business. If you can grab a file of their logo you can purchase this listing or you could purchase one of their cute packaging stamps. Any would be the perfect gift for a #GirlBoss!
Big Dreams & Grand Schemes Notepad set – Paper and Honey – $18
This notepad set will make your #GirlBoss smile when she opens her gift. With a touch of humor and beautiful lettering, these notepads will be the perfect place for her to keep track of her ideas and t0-do lists. These notepads are also large (8.5″x5.5″) so she’ll have plenty of room to doodle new designs as well!
You don’t really get into the creative world without having an affinity for doodling and drawing. And with that desire to constantly create you run through your drawing pads very quickly. Which is why a new set of pens and drawing pads is the perfect gift for a #GirlBoss. Designers always love to try new tools and these pens debuted in 2015 so she probably doesn’t have a set yet. And drawing pads of all sizes will always be appreciated. Equip her to take her business to new heights in 2016 with brand new tools to create with.
I know that I might have created this list as a hint to those around me, but these are great gifts for all women entrepreneurs. For my family’s information I only have the book by Jenn Sprinkle already so anything else is fair game. 🙂 If you’re a boss, let me know what you think about my list. And let me know if I left anything off!
