A Mini Christmas: Pocket Gift Ideas for the Yuletide Season

Giveaways to Motivate

It’s not the size of the gift that matters, it would always be the thought that counts. This is true for the most part, as many of us are busy nowadays to even think up of a fairly sized gift for our loved ones, as a way to prepare for the upcoming holidays. In this case, any gift that involves glitz, glamor, and functionality would stand out the most, as long as it’s given straight from the heart. With this in mind, you might be trying to figure out what sort of gift would show your biggest appreciation towards them. Would ornaments suffice? Would the brand and model make up for the budget? Different questions, various gift ideas, and even lesser time to prepare (Christmas is just a 2 months away, after all). Well, set your worries aside as we’ve got you covered, with a few pocket-sized gifts that would really show your families, friends, workmates, and loved ones how much they mean to you.

1. A USB Drive

Modern problems require modern solutions. This gift really proves that big things comes in small packages. If the intended recipient is one to carry around huge data and important files for the whole duration of a work shift then this would be the perfect gift for them. Imagine all of the work reports, all of the contracts, all of the invoices, compiled and compressed into their soft copy versions. Ask around any student or employee, and they’ll tell you the very same thing – USBs are one of the most useful devices to ever graze a classroom and an office space. Of course, you’d have to avail high-quality ones, unless you want your recipient to have corrupted memory dilemmas all the time.

2. A Card Case

Out of all the things that your gift recipient may need, a card case may very well be one of it. This pocket-sized item wouldn’t only keep and organize all of their calling cards, it would also keep their ATM cards, valid IDs, and credit cards safe, especially during this modern era of financial scams. Some card cases even have a modified and enhanced casing, which keeps credit cards and ATM cash cards safe from RFID skimming devices. Of course, there are some who would prefer to avail a customized version for their loved ones, and there’s nothing wrong about that. By inquiring about the services offered by these card case shops, you may even get a wonderful deal, card case and customization packaged into one purchase.

3. Post-it

Another pocket-sized item that the intended recipient can use both at work or on-the-go. Let us tell you the significance of memo pads, first of all. While organizers and notebooks are the usual preferred items to write on during meetings, they are not really easy to carry around. Some hardcover versions of organizers are even heavy, and imagine carrying that around on a meeting-filled day. And let us not even get started on notebooks. Much like organizers, some of them are bulky enough to be called a paperweight. Another thing about notebooks is that they are meticulous to carry around, especially those which are not padded. To clarify, padded notebooks are those which ends are glued together, unlike those which are quilted. Most common notebooks are quilted and are a stubborn bunch, with the metal rounds in the end getting caught in fabric during crowded walks and elevator rides. Avoid the embarrassment and go for a memo pad. Easy to use, easy to carry around, and are practical to use, especially the ones which leaves are color coded (Post-it, in particular, have four main colors, pink, green, orange, and yellow). – avoid comparing item to notebooks and journals since these are also some of the items we offer.

4. A Ball Pen

What would a post-it be without a ball pen? You’d need something to write with, after all. A well-made ball pen would usually write on any form of page or surface, no problem. It’s the ink capacity that you will have to worry about. Here’s the thing about pens, the more you use them, the lesser their ink would be. In such case, a high quality pen would be a much better choice. Due to a) having a slower rate of ink blot, thus saving them in the long run, and b) and the well-made structure which would survive any accidental falls from your pockets. Some pens would even stop writing after a few falls, and they can be a real hassle, especially if you have a lot of pointers and reminders to write down after an important meeting.

Quick Christmas Gift Ideas for the Busy Entrepreneur

Water Bottle

For the busy entrepreneur, time is money, time is gold. Things are always fast-paced, everyone’s a connection, and all opportunities are open to challenges and success. Yes, determined employees are focused and driven, which is why trying to catch their attention, would be a difficult task. This difficulty is even more amplified if you consider the fact that they’re included in your Christmas list of people who have been nice to you all year and are deserving of a nice gift. It doesn’t seem problematic at first, but coming up with a gift for people who are always busy and on-the-go would greatly stretch your imagination to its fullest. Well, you’re in luck, as we’ve got just the right list for you, a plethora of Christmas gifts which would catch the attention of even the busiest person you’ve ever known.

1. A Wristwatch
This is one gift idea which we can all agree would be fit for any busy entrepreneur who loves to make the most out of their time. Being the most obvious choice in the list, it would be an injustice not to put it as the first one. Wristwatches are definitely useful, but not in the most specific reason that people give them credit for. Yes, they tell the time, the most obvious use of a watch, but others also use them as personal accessories. Most of the time, you’d see well-dressed corporate people walking around in lavish office halls, carrying their suitcases and swinging their arms as if they’re the CEO of the building, as if they’re the “man of the hour.” And, believe it or not, this actually works. Style is emanated from people who are confident about themselves and are confident about their fashion choices as well. You may find it hilarious and trivial, at best, but small things such as wristwatches can actually function as an elegant piece, a fashion statement.

2. Water Bottle
What do you give a person who is always on-the-go? Why, a handy water bottle, of course. Usually, corporate people are holed up in their comfortable offices, enjoying the soft, laid back office chair. Depending on their position and job description, employees would need to go out and travel towards a business partner to either provide progress reports or negotiate more deals. If your supposed gift recipient falls under the category of the latter, then, do them a favor and buy them this magnificent water bottle. The thing about travels is that they can really take a lot out of you. Energy, vigor, and sweat, you name it, employees on-the-go are exhausted by the end of the day due to constant travels, and every once in a while, they may need to rehydrate. This is where a nifty water bottle would come in handy. Of course, you also have to make sure that they get a proper amount of liquid each day. In that case, a Water Bottle would be a definite choice, featuring 1 Liter worth of liquid space.

3. A Powerbank
People on-the-go are mostly glued to their cellphones. If they’re not asking for directions towards the next destination for the day, they might be waiting for more text updates regarding the agenda of the upcoming meeting. And we all know what happens to smartphones with frequent use. Yup, the battery usually runs out! Good thing there are now such things as powerbanks. This has become a necessity nowadays. You may call it a device, an accessory to another device, etc. but one thing’s for sure, it’s definitely a life saver. If you ever consider gifting a powerbank, keep in mind that they come in different sizes, both literally and in terms of their mAh (milliampere hour). Bulky powerbanks are good if the recipient carries around a suitcase or bag to work every day. If they don’t, then you are better off giving them a smaller version and model. For the mAh (milliampere hour), basically it indicates the amount of energy stored in the powerbank itself. Know the type of cellphone that your gift recipient uses and how often they use their cellphones. These would important information, especially when you’re shopping for the right powerbank. Some of them come in 2,000 mAh, 3,000 mAh, etc. Feel free to ask the store personnel as well if you’re not sure about the type and model.
