We all have a few people in our lives that are impossible to shop for and, with Christmas a little over a week away, we may be scrambling to think of something great for that person. Well, if that person is an entrepreneur or startup founder, we can help. Check these gifts out:
Look no further, StartupLansing has the perfect gifts for that special entrepreneur in your life.
Freehand or Capacitive Gloves
[two_thirds] It’s cold in Michigan. But, entrepreneurs can’t stop doing what they do just because of some frigid temperatures. Make sure the entrepreneurs you know can access their devices on the go, but still keep their hands toasty, even during the harsh Michigan winter. Whether the fingers of the glove pull away to allow access to your touch screen, or they use capacitive technology, anything that makes work easier will make an entrepreneur happy. [/two_thirds]
[two_thirds] For the multi-tasking entrepreneur (and what entrepreneur isn’t?), the Nimbus is a fun, quirky gift that will satisfy their over-stimulated brain. A physical dashboard with four faces, each gauge, when linked with your smart phone, can keep you apprised of a wide range of info. From Tweets to emails to personal health stats, with Nimbus, an entrepreneur is never out of the loop. [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] [/one_third_last]
[two_thirds] It was a hot topic this year, with the announcement of the Apple Watch release and while you won’t be able to get an iWatch until early next year, there are other Smart Watches currently on the market. And, if you really want to get in good with the entrepreneur in your life, it’s probably the ultimate gift. Apple users have to wait a little longer, but Samsung has what you need for this Holiday season. [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] [/one_third_last]
[two_thirds] An entrepreneur has to have the latest gadgets, so if you can’t justify a Smart Watch purchase for your favorite entrepreneur, a laser keyboard is just as techy, just as cool, but a little less expensive. [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] [/one_third_last]
[two_thirds] A lifeline for many entrepreneurs, coffee in any way shape or form can be a great gift. Whether it be coffee subscriptions so you never run out of fuel, a pound of coffee from your favorite local roaster, (Bloom Roasters offers both!) or an espresso machine so you don’t have to leave the office for that afternoon cup, if it involves coffee, entrepreneurs probably want it. [/two_thirds] [one_third_last][/one_third_last]
[two_thirds] Entrepreneurs are busy. They work alot. By the time they get home after a long day of coming up with brilliant ideas, the first thing on their mind might be food. But the last thing on their mind is making it. Give the gift of a food subscription using services such as Plated to make meals simple, easy and delicious for the busy entrepreneur. [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] [/one_third_last]
Whether it be beer, wine, scotch, or bourbon, entrepreneurs like to drink. With subscriptions to monthly clubs you can keep your entrepreneur’s bar stocked. [/two_thirds]
[two_thirds] To work off all that coffee, food and alcohol, maybe you should try a gym membership, to keep that entrepreneur in tip top shape. [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] [/one_third_last]
[two_thirds] There can be some days when an entrepreneurs will barely set foot in his office. When out meeting clients and making connections, they need to make sure both they, and their phones, stay fueled. A portable battery is a great way to stay charged. Depending on the size and price you are looking for, there are a few different models you can choose from; a few include a Bolt or a Mophie [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] [/one_third_last]
[two_thirds] Sometimes an entrepreneur works from home. Sometimes, they may not even make it out of their pajamas before their phone is ringing or email has to be answered. If they are going to work in their PJs, they might as well do it in style. Get your entrepreneur a pair of fancy pajamas (who doesn’t love silk jammies?) and while you’re at it, get them personalized with their initials or even their company name.
