Christmas is right around the corner and that means it’s also that time of the year when we bang our heads against the wall trying to think of what to get for that special someone in our life.
Last week I posted gift ideas for a traveler… but what if your loved one is a blogger?
What are some of the best gift ideas for bloggers?
Whether they blog for income, for fun, or a little of both, I’m sure you’re wishing for some ideas on resources that would make their lives easier!
Well, I’ve come up with some thoughtful but practical gift ideas for bloggers in your life. They range from small stocking stuffers to pretty hefty gifts so I’m sure you’ll find that there’s a gift for any budget.

Gift ideas for bloggers: to make their lives easier
I discovered Visme recently and let me tell you: I’m low-key obsessed! I had been using
- Canva for my blog, social media, and freebie design,
- infographic generators for my – duh – infographics, and
- PowerPoint for my presentations
up until now but after this, I definitely won’t be going back to using a million different tools! Visme is a simple yet powerful, all-in-one visual communication tool that allows you to create interactive presentations, infographics, visual reports, documents, etc, via an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop online platform. And with the ability to upload specific brand fonts, colors, and design layouts, your beloved blogger’s branding will always be 100% on-point.
2. Key | Smart
The average person has 9 keys on their keyring, and no idea what 3 of them are for!
So even if your favorite blogger works from home (and therefore doesn’t have an office key), who couldn’t benefit from some organization in their keyring?
Car keys, house keys, suitcase keys (for the travel bloggers), and perhaps even a laptop security key… gift your favorite blogger a Key | Smart to help bring some clarity and organization into their pockets and purses.
Link-able will not only help them grow their blog outreach through guest posting, but it’ll do so in a way that takes a TON of work off their plate.
Tailwind is magical. A Tailwind subscription (you get $10 off if you use my link) will take hours of work off your blogger’s plate if they’re using Pinterest to drive traffic to their blog (hint: they probably are!)
Tailwind will not only post for them, but it’ll do it at the best times to ensure their content gets seen by the most people possible.
But wait… Tailwind gets even better!
If Tailwind is magical, then Tailwind Tribes is the cherry on top.
Tailwind Tribes are basically groups where bloggers post Pinterest pins they’ve made for their content.
Then, you share content made by them and they return the favor by sharing your posts.
Unfortunately, the free Tailwind Tribe account is capped at joining 5 tribes and posting 30 pins total.
But if you use my link above, you get $15 towards either a Tailwind subscription or a Tribes Powerup! Powerups increase in price depending on how much posting the user will do but if you’re feeling particularly generous, their biggest program offers unlimited tribes AND unlimited posts!
If your loved blogger is into Instagram, then a Planoly account is the way to go for a gift!
Planoly is an application used to:
- plan out their Instagram posts,
- schedule and publish photos automatically,
- read and reply to comments,
- and analyze engagement on posts.
Needless to say, it’s a fantastic tool for bloggers and influencers killing it on Instagram!
This content planner is the only one in print designed for bloggers and social media planners, with stickers for nearly all social media sites.
If your techy blogger also has a love of putting pen to paper, then this beautiful content planner will not only make their day but also keep them incredibly organized!
Notion is one of the top tools I use on a daily basis for my blog. I use it to organize my ideas for blog posts, categories, and tags.
I also track blog post structures, meaning what images and resources go with different blog categories.
Notion syncs across my phone, laptop, and desktop and this way I always have my content right at my fingertips 🙂
Gift ideas for bloggers: to keep them growing
I have a blog post about journaling for business in the works but if the blogger in your life is into paper and pencil journaling, they NEED this planner. It will not only get them more organized, but they’ll truly start seeing their blog as a business, with a business plan, quarterly goals, and budget.
Milotree is great for growing your blogger’s social media following! Basically, it’s a plugin that allows you to recommend your social media pages to your blog visitors.
You can connect your Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Youtube, and email list and grow them all simultaneously through the traffic you’re already generating to your site!
After all, if someone reached you via Twitter, they may not know you’re active on Youtube as well, so it’s a great way to let your readers know where to find you in the social media world.
Gift ideas for bloggers: cute stuff
And if your blogger is anything like me, their favorite way to crank out the content is in their cozy little work nook with a coffee and some comfy clothes.
If they ARE, I’ve got some cute stocking stuffer ideas for you below.
I’ve made each photo a link to the item on Amazon so if you see something you like, be sure to click through and put these goodies in your Amazon cart!

Gift ideas for bloggers: pro tip
If you want to set your blogger up for success, my biggest recommendation is to gift them a blogging course!
This course on becoming a travel blogger is absolutely the way to go if your loved blogger is looking to get into travel blogging! I personally took this course and got SO much out of it! The Travel Blogging Fast Track not only taught me the types of content I should be making for my travel readers but how best to go about my travel blogging in order to set myself up for success.
If your blogger is considering entering the travel blogging sphere, or if they’re already in it but not quite sure how to monetize their work, I HIGHLY recommend taking this course. You’ll be amazed at how quickly their skills grow when it comes to creating content.
The 5 Day Start a Money Making Blog Crash Course (also from It’s a Lovely Life) is another incredible course to gift your blogger if they’re just starting out on their blogging journey.
It’s a free course but hey, it’s the thought that counts!
And signing up your blogger for this course is not only thoughtful, but it’ll set them up to start blogging on the right foot. 🙂
I hope I’ve given you some useful suggestions for the best gift ideas for bloggers in your life.
Let me know below what gifts for bloggers caught your eye the most, and if you’re a blogger yourself, maybe you might want to drop a hint and share this blog post with your family and friends! 😉
