Christmas is almost here again, and finding great gifts for the creatives in your life can be a real challenge. We’ve put together a list to help you pick out some gifts that are sure to bring a smile to their faces:
Bullet journals are an increasingly popular way to organise your life. Using a simple system, such as the one described in Ryder Carroll’s highly recommended book, Bullet Journal Method, a bullet journal is a refreshing, offline way to organise thoughts and ideas.
Bullet journals can be pretty and flowery, or simple and functional – the system can be adapted to taste.
The Secret Lives of Color Book
Creative people tend to love two things – colours and stories.
The Secret Lives of Color is a beautifully visual book combines the two, and is a fantastic present for any creative – whether they are a designer, or simply like well designed and interesting things.
Sometimes choosing a physical present can be a challenge, especially if you don’t live with the person. A subscription is a great gift to give that can have a lasting positive impact.
Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited is a great service to get your gift receiver reading more, while Audible is perfect for those who want to listen on the go. We find Audible is particularly good for non-fiction books.
You could even gift them a GBM Music subscription – to ensure they have unlimited access to all of the music we release in the next 12 months to give them a complete musical toolkit to improve the quality of their life!
Music is usually pretty important to creative people, and for that reason, headphones are always a good bet.
Smart speakers are hard to avoid these days, and while they may take some getting used to, we do think they are a good addition to the house.
They make playing more music effortless, which is always a good thing as far as we are concerned.
They are also getting cheaper and cheaper, as well as more subtle.
The Echo Dot is a small and affordable option.
A good backpack is always useful for on-the-go types, especially this one from a company called Sosoon, which has more compartments and spaces than you can imagine.
Charge your phone, hook your sunglasses, and store your wallet securely – this backpack does it all!
We all know we should drink more water, and more and more people are worried about plastic use – the solution? A nice water bottle.
We recommend one of these popular, stylish Chilly’s options.
On a similar theme, single use coffee cups are also very problematic. A nice reusable coffee cup will always be appreciated. We recommend glass, as these do not effect the flavour.
Even better, bringing your own cup will often land you a discount at your favourite coffee shop!
Try this option from KeepCup.
We have long been a fan of Huel – a form of powdered, vegan-friendly meal, which is packed full of vitamins and nutrients.
It may not sound great, but being able to shake up a nutritious meal whenever you want is a huge timesaver – and makes it easy for people who travel a lot to eat a little better.
