Christmas is just a few days away. Have you filled your Christmas tree with presents for all your friends and fellow event planners? …or have you left Christmas shopping till the last minute? 

If so, stay calm! We’ve prepared a list of last-minute gift ideas that are easy to purchase, involve minimal wrapping, and will put a smile on your friends’ faces!

 

Goal Planner/Journal

The one thing that every motivated, self-starting, and incredibly busy professional needs in their life, is a goal planner. 

This can be as simple as a journal for your event planner friend to write their 2018 goals into, or a dedicated goal planner such as the Passion Planner or Freedom Journal, which include a structured format and motivation to help your friend achieve their personal and professional goals in 2018. 

 

iTunes/Google Play Gift Card + A List of Recommended Apps

At PowerVote, we absolutely love apps, and absolutely recommend them for boosting your events, and productivity. But since you can’t purchase an app on behalf of a friend, you can do something even better – gift them an iTunes or Google Play gift card, and let them purchase the apps they want. 

And to help them get started, you can give them a list of recommended apps that will help them work better – by themselves, or in collaboration with teammates. Or you can simply point them to this article about our favourite collaborative tools. 

 

Bluetooth Headphones

While the headphone jack may be sooooo 2015, there are a surprisingly number people who haven’t given Bluetooth headphones a chance. You can introduce your event planner friends a whole new world of wireless freedom, with a pair of awesome Bluetooth headphones. 

If your friends are into bass-heavy beats, most commercial headphones from popular brands (such as Sony, Jaybird or Beats) should satisfy their audio cravings. For audiophiles who prefer natural, flat response sound, we highly recommend headphones (or earphones) from B&O or Onkyo. 

 

Audible Membership

For the entrepreneurial event planner who loves reading for personal development (or stress-relief), this can be a life-changing gift.  Perfect for the busy professional who’s always on the move, your event planner friends can now “read” more books than ever – while in the car, at a supplier’s office, or when enjoying some downtime at an event. 

 

Massage Package

After a long week at work, running between offices and venues, and pulling overnight shifts – what more could a busy event planner ask for, than a pampering massage?

This can be a pretty costly gift, but if the event planner that you’re buying a Christmas gift for is that special someone in your life – you can show them how much you love them, with this gift from the heart that will soothe their body and soul.
