Gift ideas for busy people.
Everyone is busy. Seriously. But, we all have a friend who seems to fit more into their days and their life than even seems possible. And it also seems that person is kind of impossible to shop for because they just have their ish together. This gift guide is for that person.
This is, hands down, my favorite gift idea. And, okay, I am TOTALLY biased because this is what I got Tommy for our one-year anniversary and he LOVED it.
This Push Pin Travel Map (true to its name) comes with little pins to put in the places you’ve been. It’s perfect for people who love to travel or who are constantly making future plans to travel. The map and framing is gorgeous; I was blown away with the quality when it arrived. I want one for my place now.
They sell both U.S. and world maps and you can pick different map colors and frame types. I got Tommy the Earth Toned map in a cherry frame so it would match his office.
Tommy had so much fun thinking back to all the places he’s been and putting pins in. It was really fun hearing his travel stories too.
When I gave him the gift, since we haven’t travelled much together (yet!) I wrote on little cards places we have talked about going and stuck pins in those cards. 🙂
I have given fitness trackers as gifts for years and they’re always a hit. I’m currently partial to the Garmin vivofit 2 since you don’t have to charge it, but FitBit and Jawbone are ones I’ve purchased in the past.
Cost: $70-$150, depending on the brand & model
Coffee Gift Basket
You can create your own using local beans + locally designed mug, or you can save yourself some time and order one that’s already assembled. Overstock has some great coffee-lover gift baskets! This one looks delicious.
Cost: $10-$25, depending on what you include!
Busy people either live by notepads or they could really use a lesson in how to use a notepad. 😉 I love the Get Shit Done notebook and Nordstrom has a surprisingly great selection of notepads (funny and pretty options).
Okay, your turn to share! What gifts do you give to the busiest person you know? I’ve LOVED reading your gift ideas on the other gift guides – seriously so helpful! If you missed them, here’s the gift guide for runners, the gift guide for CrossFitters, and gift guide for your husband!
