You might not understand what your blogger friend does, but you want to support them somehow. They spend hours “behind the scenes” writing blog posts, taking pictures, making videos, scheduling content, and chasing dreams. There are lots of ways you can support them throughout the year (read their blog posts, share them with your friends on Facebook and Pinterest, and subscribe to their newsletter for example) but if you want to find the perfect gift, these gift ideas for bloggers will help you.
Making videos or taking pictures requires lots of light. Attaching a light ring to attach right to your phone is super helpful.
Mugs or Cups
Some bloggers run on caffeine. Find a mug that supports their funny side or sarcastic side or uplifting side. You can’t just drink coffee all day long. Water is just as important. A mug that can travel with them throughout their busy day is a blessing.
Having a good planner to keep track of an editorial calendar and deadlines is very important. There are lots of different styles to choose from. If you’re not sure what kind will work best for your friend, a notebook will work just as well so they can keep track of all those ideas they have floating around in their head.
Phone Camera Lenses
Great pictures are a huge part of blogging. Don’t you enjoy looking at your friend’s pictures? These lenses will help them up their game.
External Hard Drive
All those pictures take up a lot of space on laptops. Having another place, like an external hard drive, to store them will help keep their laptop running quickly.
Making videos requires a steady hand. I don’t know anyone who has a steady hand like that so most bloggers use a tripod to hold their camera while they record. Choose one that holds a variety of phone or camera sizes so they’re able to use it with all their different equipment.
Phone microphones can pick up a lot of different sounds. You want the world to hear your friend’s brilliant ideas and hilarious jokes and a small lapel microphone can be incredibly helpful.
One of the things that has helped me most with my blogging confidence is other bloggers. When you find a supportive place to ask questions and get support, you don’t want to leave. Reaching out to brands is a way to grow your business. Purchasing Brandi Riley’s Pitch Book Bundle is a great way to grow your confidence and start reaching out to brands to grow your relationships with them.
Do you love those flat lay Instagram pictures? You’d be surprised how much work goes into creating those. These backdrops help make even better pictures.
Picmonkey is a great program that bloggers use to make graphics for their blogs. Canva works well too and both can be used on line so they can create images anywhere. Gifting them with a subscription is certain to make them smile.
It never fails that after spending a day doing Facebook Live videos, sharing Instastories, and taking pictures for blog posts your phone dies. Having a great portable charger can be a lifesaver. And don’t forget the charging cords too. You can never have to many of those laying around.
