The holiday shopping season is in full swing and, if you read HARO, it feels like there is an endless call for gift guide submissions – Best Wine Gift, Best Gifts for Vendors, Best Gifts for Moms. But what do you get for the spin master, the content creator, the crisis wrangler – the public relations professionals in your life? We’ve carefully curated the following list of gifts that would delight us if we were to find them on our desks:
Rent The Runway Subscription – As a PR boss, they’re making decisions all day. Reduce decision fatigue with a Rent The Runway unlimited subscription. Members can choose four items each month from top designers to complete their wardrobe. Getting dressed for client meetings will be a breeze and they’ll thank you for the extra time back in the morning.
Crystals for Humanity Straws by Gem Water – Why have plain water when you can have gem-infused water? These sustainably sourced crystal straws are not only a fun accessory, they are environmentally friendly. Select a charm in either rose quartz, clear quartz, or amethyst to adorn your straw and raise your vibrations. Now that’s some seriously good energy.
Calm Subscription – The public relations agency can be a hectic place with lots of clients to manage, hundreds of emails each day, and even a crisis from time to time. It’s no surprise that “PR Executive” regularly tops the list of the most stressful jobs. Gifting a Calm subscription will help your publicist unwind at the end of a long day and drift into a restful slumber so that they can wake up at their best.
Lavalier Kit for iPhone – This clip-on microphone turns any iPhone into a studio in their pocket. Help your PR pro take content creation to the next level with quality audio on the go. They can simply plug the lavalier into their phone and use it to shoot videos for social media with crystal clear audio.
Olivia Pope Minimalist Print – Consider your gift-giving handled! If your PR pro is a fan of the TV Show Scandal, (and who isn’t?) then they will love hanging this Olivia Pope print on their office wall. Keep in mind that the frame is not included, so you may want to have it framed for them to complete the gift.
Digital Photography Workshop – Continuing education is the gift that will keep on giving. Find a local photography class, like this one from Boston Photography Workshops, that can teach the PR pro in your life how to improve their Instagram influencer game. Workshops include photo composition, food photography, and even portraits. Their clients will love their improved skills.
Yeti USB Podcast Mic – For the content creator in your life, give the gift of the Yeti USB Podcast Mic. Available in an array of colors, this mic makes all the difference for professional recording, streaming, and building a captive audience.
So…What’s The Angle Tee – Talk about a conversation starter. We all made our careers by learning how to find “the angle”. This fun t-shirt is perfect for casual Fridays in the office and is sure to spark fun conversation (unless, of course, a client is in the office…)
Everybody Writes – Cross your t’s and dot your i’s. Part writing guide, part handbook on the rules of good sportsmanship in content marketing, and all-around reliable desk companion for anyone creating or directing content on behalf of brands. Give your PR pro the gift of good writing.
Birchbox Subscription – The PR men in your life may not admit it, but they love beauty products too. Birchbox is a cool subscription service that will deliver samples of all the latest male grooming products to his door each month. From daily skincare to beard balms, Birchbox will keep him looking sharp.
We hope this list has given you some ideas to alleviate your holiday shopping stress. What else would you buy for the PR professional in your life? Let us know the comments!
