Great Gifts for Busy Professionals

Do you want to buy a gift for coworkers this year that will actually be appreciated? Maybe you found the gift you bought your Secret Santa recipient in the trash last year, or perhaps you overheard them talking about how awful it was behind your back. Maybe you really tried to be thoughtful, or perhaps you didn’t; either way, you likely said that next year will be different. Well, next year is here, and it is time to shop! So, don’t even think about picking up a gift card or something thoughtless, what you need to be shopping for are great gifts for busy professionals.

  • Clocky Alarm Clock on Wheels Do you have a coworker who is always late because they hit the snooze button too many times or perhaps they actually turn their alarm clock off completely? These wandering alarm clocks will make that excuse a thing of the past. When it goes off, it rolls off the nightstand and keeps on moving, so the person has to physically get out of bed to shut it off. You might want to buy one of these for yourself too.
  • Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals – Nearly anyone can use a little help coming up with recipe ideas that can be made with a busy schedule. This recipe is full of a ton of healthy and delicious recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less.
  • Circa Notebooks These are going to be hot this season. These aren’t your average notebooks; they allow you to tear out pages and also reinsert them. There are a ton of different styles, such as a Method Notebook, 14 Ruled Notebook, Life Stepped Project Notebook, iPad Foldover Notebook, Inside Out Foldover Notebook and more.
  • Ultra Mini Travel Steamer – Are you shopping for someone who has to do a lot of traveling for work? Alternatively, maybe they hit the gym before work every morning, and their clothes get a little wrinkled in their locker. This small portable steamer is perfect. Fill it with tap water, plug it in and remove wrinkles and creases with minimal effort. It even includes a travel bag, and it is small enough to fit in a gym bag or suitcase.
  • Black & Decker Brew ‘n Go Coffeemaker with Travel Mug If you are looking for a budget-friendly gift that is sure to be appreciated, this is it. More than 1,500 positive reviews can’t be wrong!

It is dishwasher-safe, and has a permanent filter, which eliminates the need for paper ones. Now they can brew their coffee and run out the door, with minimal effort.
  • Magazine Subscription – Sure, they may be busy, but there is always time to enjoy a magazine in the taxi, bus, airplane, subway, etc. A few popular picks for busy professionals include Time, Inc., Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Money, Forbes, The Economist and Harvard Business Review.
  • VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand Portable Scanner – This portable scanner is small enough to fit in a briefcase or messenger bag, yet it can support a micro SD card up to 16GB. It can scan magazines, documents and both monochromatic and color images.
  • iRobot 560 Roomba Vacuum RobotRoomba emerged on the scene years ago and has not lost its novelty. Who wouldn’t appreciate a vacuum robot that does all the dirty work for them? It picks up dirt and debris and even traps allergens. Roomba will go about its business and then return to its home base to charge when it is done. This may be a bit too pricy as a gift for coworkers, but it would be ideal if everyone was chipping in for a gift for the boss or a retiree, or if you have a busy professional in your life that you are close to, and don’t mind digging deep into your pockets for.
