This season is a lot about giving. Last week, it was about giving thanks. Now, it’s about giving back! Did you know that tomorrow is actually #GivingTuesday?
In light of that, you may want to give something random but useful to your friends. Grab one of these nifty gifts for them, and put some smiles on their faces.
#1 – Origin (Dan Brown)
Giving someone the gift of reading is always great. For this, Dan Brown’s latest book Origin is a good choice. Full of the usual Dan Brown excitement, Origin will surely give your friend something to keep busy with this holiday season.
Unleash the inner creatives in your friends! Sheaffer’s line of calligraphy pens are excellent for people who love to make art out of their words. It’s good for both pros and those just learning calligraphy.
Got friends who are Star Wars fans? They’ll surely love this one. Not only is it a 501st Legion minifigure, but it’s also an 8GB flash drive! Now that’s multipurpose.
Your writer friends will thank you for this. Any writer knows how important having a notebook anywhere they go is. And with Rhodia’s simple yet brilliant design, your writer friends will surely love to take this with them everywhere.
#5 – Energizer Book Light
Any bookworm would love to have this by their side. This handy book light by Energizer clips onto the pages of any book. With that, reading in the dark just got a lot easier. And the efficient LED light ensures long battery life. Give one to a bookworm friend and they’ll love you for it
#6 – Miquelrius Pouch
We all have that friend who just loves to collect pens. To lose any of their pens surely gives them great pain. But give them one of these pouches by Miquelrius, and you’ll help them avoid that pain. Each pouch has enough space for all the precious pens your friend lives to hoard.
#7 – Zig Brush Markers
Your artist friends will love this fancy set of markers. They’re brush markers, meaning they write just like a brush would paint. Except that with these, there are no messy paint splotches.
Your artsy friends again will love this. The point 88 markers are great for anyone wanting a different writing experience. Think of a fine point pen using permanent marker ink. That’s essentially what the Point 88s are.
And they even go well with the Miquelrius pouch in #6, so why not give both if you can?
#9 – Wreck This Journal
This book is great for any of your friends who want something unique and fun. Wreck This Journal contains dozens of fun, stimulating activities for anyone. The things it’ll tell you to do will, surely, wreck that journal.
This goes again to your bookworm friends. With an ever growing collection of books, they’ll need bookmarks too. And with these cute magnetic bookmarks, they’ll never lose track of where they are again. Even if they read many books at a time.
#11 – Lapoche Charge Me Up Bag
This is for your techie friends. Those who always bring their whole arsenal of gadgetry with them. This bag will hold all the chargers and cables for their laptops, tablets, phones, smartwatches, drones, cameras, and more. It even has space for flash drives, SD cards, and other small electronics accessories. This bag ensures all of these charging-related devices are all in one place.
Maybe you have a friend whom you see as a future leader. Or maybe he/she is one now. Well, what better thing to give him/her than a book like this? Leadership guru John C. Maxwell will equip your friends with the skills they need to succeed as they lead. The Complete 101 Collection covers attitude, relationships, teamwork, and even mentoring. Maxwell indeed makes you more well-rounded.
#13 – Olife Desk Organizer
Do you have a friend whose desk is always cluttered? Why not give him/her a helping hand through this cute little desk organizer? It’s a good place for your friend to keep all those loose pens, erasers, boxes of staples, paper clips, scissors, rulers, and more. This will surely help him/her get his/her desk in order.
This goes for your friends who love to analyze anything. They’ll love the premise of Freakonomics, which explores “the hidden side of everything”. From buying dinner to getting insurance, Freakonomics takes very mundane things and reveals the unexpected reasons behind them. It also explains, in a weird way, why people do the things they do.
Do you have a friend who you think needs a daily dose of inspiration? Give him/her One Page at a Time. No, not literally give him one page a day; give him the book with that title. Each of the 365 pages gives a short, yet meaningful creative project anyone can do. Enjoy creating every day through writing, drawing, and reflecting.
This book was the winner of the 2015 Goodreads Choice Awards! Any of your bookworm friends will love its story. Mare Barrow, a “Red” by birth, is suddenly thrust into a life of royalty in the presence of the “Silvers”. No spoilers here; just give this to a friend and let them find out what will happen. One thing’s for sure though: Red Queen does not disappoint.
Any of your friends will love this fan. It’s perfect for when they’re out and about and can’t take the heat. It’s a quick and easy way to cool down. And it’s small enough to fit into almost any bag. It’s also rechargeable, so it’s eco-friendly. No need for disposable alkaline batteries.
This is for your audiophile friends. Their sound-tripping will be a lot more satisfying with this bluetooth speaker nearby. It’s a more powerful alternative than just their phones’ speakers. It’s ideal for sharing their jam with others, or if they’re just at home and don’t want to use earphones.
Just about anyone with a phone knows the struggle of running out of battery too soon. Help a friend overcome that struggle through this 5200 mAh powerbank. Any friend would thank you for giving them something like this. You’re literally giving them power.
#20 – Lapoche Shoe Bag
Got a friend who loves hitting the gym? Surely he/she would love somewhere to store his/her gym shoes conveniently. Give them one of these Lapoche Shoe Bags. Maybe that will even motivate them to work out more.
Those are just 20 things you can give to your friends, family, and those that matter to you this #GivingTuesday. Take part and give back to those who have given you much already. Surely they’ll appreciate you for taking the effort!
