Holiday Gift Ideas for Clients and Colleagues

Need some last-minute holiday gift ideas for your clients and colleagues, but crunched for time? Here’s a list of suggestions that you can easily pull off in the few shopping days left during the holiday season.

  • Universal battery chargers. This is a very popular and handy device for frequent travelers like team Elevation. We all have experienced that moment where we need just a little more juice to finish a phone call or project. Check out the Magicstick by Powerocks at $39.99.
  • Portable projector for mobile devices. This is ideal for fellow business associates that frequently give presentations on the go. Plug the Brookstone Pocket Projector Mobile into your mobile phone and you’ve got instant illumination.
  • A charitable donation. Making a donation in your client or colleague’s name to a nonprofit organization will be much appreciated.
  • Stylus for touch screen devices. Stylus pens are very popular among tablet users. There are a lot of options to choose from depending on what kind of “doodler” your gift recipient is. For fast sketches or short notes, try a standard stylus like the Marware Capacitive Stylus. If your client or colleague is very precise and likes to write more than sketch, check out the Adonit Jot Pro Fine Point Stylus.
  • Over-the-ear headphones. Another excellent choice for the frequent flyer on your list. Balanced to Calvin Harris's studio preference and boasting XC sound engines, the SOL REPUBLIC Master Tracks XC 1631-33 feature adjustable, noise-isolating SonicSoft speaker cushions and a durable FlexTech headband. If you’re looking for a less expensive version there are more options available like the Pioneer Steez Effects DJ headphones.
  • Touchscreen gloves. These can be a real life saver when working outdoor events in the winter. Make sure your clients and colleagues can stay warm and use their touchscreen devices at the same time. Take a look at Isotoner’s smarTouch line, which includes choices for men and women.
  • Spa gift certificates. Sometimes we need to be reminded to take a little time for ourselves. Purchase a gift card to a local spa or take advantage of spafinder.com, a convenient service for travelers.
  • Wireless portable speakers. With a wireless portable speaker you can play your favorite playlist or Pandora station without wires or a docking station. The Pioneer A1 Wi-Fi Speaker features AirPlay and HTC Connect technologies that let you wirelessly stream music from select Apple or HTC devices.
  • Gift cards. Relieve the pressure of finding the perfect gift and buy a gift card. According to the National Retail Federation, six in 10 holiday shoppers would most like to receive gift cards. With the Gyft Digital Gift Card Wallet, you can “buy, send, receive, manage and redeem digital gift cards straight from your mobile device or computer.”
