I don’t know about you but I really wish when Christmas rolls around that the people in my life would ‘get’ what I do for a living so they can buy me some gifts I can use to make more money 😉
You know, gifts just for fun are cool and all but there’s something about a free business tool that gets me all geeked! I know you know what I mean, right?
Well, if you’re looking for some ideas on great tools you could use for your business on any budget, check out the lists below. I might just copy/paste some of these onto a Christmas Wish List I’ll randomly leave around the house. Or maybe add this blog post to my email signature with a big HINT, HINT in front of it, lol.
Feel free to do the same!
What To Buy An Internet Marketer For Christmas
Hosting, Baby – Can you imagine waking up on Christmas morning with a brand new, thoughfully picked domain name and a whole year to do something with?? I know I’d be super stoked! So, loved one, please buy me a domain name and hosting from one or more of these reputable hosts, k? ….
Or, Domain Name For My Baby – Another fun idea for a new mom or dad is to grab the domain name of their baby if you can still snag it. Just think, we live in an age where most anyone who’s born will grow up with the internet as a simple way of life. They’re be no ‘getting use to’ the technology, they’ll just live it. And more likely they’ll want to have a website or at least a way to control what shows up when potential employers ‘Google’ them later in life. Snag it now and a techy mom will be so impressed! (If she hasn’t already snagged it up herself).
i Want a Tablet For Christmas – Obviously we all want tablets. iPads are very cool, but not everyone can afford them. There is the HP TouchPad or the Blackberry Playbook (which I’ve already treated myself to as a pre-holiday gift!).
E-Readers For The Holiday Classics: (Starting around $100) Nothing like reading an internet business book on an e-reader! Darling I don’t really care if you get me the Kindle Fire, the Barnes-Noble Nook or the Kobo eReader Touch – as long as my books come in bites, I’m cool…
Headsets, Honey – The true techy is someone who uses Skype to talk to friends, facebook chats, holds a webinar or too and uses VOIP to call just about anyone. Logitech’s ClearChat is a great choice for anyone, or the Lenove P95- is a little higher end. A really cool microphone for the podcaster would be a SnowBall by Blue:
Capturing the Christmas (and Marketing) Memories – “Dear, I’d love to take great pictures of the holidays. Then, when the holidays are done I can use my great gift to build my business – what a smart way to use your money, honey!”
Here are some great memory capturing devices for online business owners:
Don’t Forget The Stocking Stuffers – There are soooo many options when it comes to stuffing the stockings of a lover of the internet! I’ve selected just a few to talk about below, I bet you can come up with more 😉
Gift cards that I’ll use while doing business on the go, like a Starbucks Gift Card, an Amazon Gift Card so I can buy books for my eReader, a Best Buy Gift Card and iTunes for my music and podcasts of course! Oh and how could I forget, for us Canadians there’s always a Tim Horton’s Gift Card…
AND See THIS?! A USB Flash Drive AND a Necklace – It’s so Pretty and Functional!! I’m about to die of geekyness as I research these gifts, lol! I Want it, I want it, I WANT IT! (Oh, and just in case you didn’t know, I want it!)….
Well, I could go on and on here with stocking stuffers, USB drives but you get the picture…
Gifts abound for the techy, geeky, internet marketer… just think of what they love to do and I bet you’ll find something they’ll love to receive.
So now it’s your turn: What’s on your Christmas list this year? What are you hinting at to your honey? (or kiddos?)… talk to me
p.s. Just so we’re clear many of the links above are my affiliates links. That means I get a commission if you click over there and buy. Since I paid my VA to help me research this and then took close to two hours I figure it’s a fair trade, since you might get some simply awesome gifts in the deal! (Either from yourself, or from your loved ones if you share this post with them 😉
