10. Flip cam
Starting the list at number 10, we have flip cams. These self-recording devices have loads of utility for young entrepreneurs. They could film themselves for presentations or a guide for one of their products or simply addressing some issues on your site in a video format rather then text. Other then business related usage, the flip cam can be used to record ideas or thought-process for those ideas to be referred to later when it would be needed the most. Due to the how important the flip cam is, we deemed it to be included in the top 10 Christmas gifts a young entrepreneur would need.
Moving onto number 9 we have Coffee. You don’t even have to have an entrepreneur mindset to know how important coffee is to a busy working adult. Coffee is always there to jumpstart you on those lazy Mondays so it seems fitting that entrepreneurs would want no need coffee to start the day. Coffee would give them the strength to go though those long meetings and be energized enough to make it through the whole working day or at least have a good start to one. Whatever the case, Coffee is a must-have to any entrepreneur out there.
At number 8, we have luggage. Whether you work for a multi-national or not, travelling is a way of life for entrepreneurs so luggage becomes a necessity. Going to meet clients, hosting events in a different city and other stuff that would usually require you boarding an airplane for business purpose. The right suitcase can make an entrepreneurs life so much easier and simpler.
7. Business cards
Now at number 7, we have business cards. A business card is quite important when conversing with future potential clients, rather if they are interested in your business or not, you can still give them a business card so that they know who they are talking to, what their position is in that firm and what their working phone number is. It becomes common courtesy to give business cards to these clients as a way to show that you are interested as well.
If you do end up buying a bunch of cards, be sure to make them fancy to an extent and not overdue it. Clients don’t take people seriously who have way to complicated business cards. It sends out the wrong message.
6. White board
Now we reach number 6 which is a white board. Every working day requires rattling your brain for ideas or ways for improvement and general fixes to the current state of affairs in the business and so it’s best to have a white board right in your office for various reasons, not only does help you jolt down important points that you think will help but you can use it as a tool for time management. Write down the task you have to do to and tick them when you have completed it. It keeps track of everything important you wanted to be done with today at the office and so we deem it worthy to be enlisted in the top 10 Gifts you could give to an entrepreneur.
5. A comfortable work chair
Breaking into top 5, we have comfortable chair at rank 5. Business days require long sitting sessions behind the desk so a good chair would do wonders, preferably with arm rest. Even when setting up a business, a good chair is a very good addition so do look out for one of those, professional office chairs do becomes quite expensive since they maximize in comfort and that reclining feature which I wouldn’t mind on my chair but I digress. Either way, gifting a comfy chair would be a pretty good choice unless the respective individual already has one.
4. Gym membership
At number 4 we have gym membership. While business is quite important to a young entrepreneur, so is his/her body. Sitting behind a desk for too long can have its side-effects so a gym membership can be pretty healthy in the long run and we aren’t just limiting our option to iron pumping, young entrepreneurs can learn meditating which can help relax in stressful business situations and sometimes find the idea that they have been looking for or get that concentration back which they lost.
3. Smart phone
Starting off with the top 3, we have smart phone at number 3. Smart phones are pretty important to teenagers and adults alike but for an entrepreneur they are like a lifeline. Most business conversations and dealings go through their smart phones, only the very important deals and discussions happen face to face at a conference room. Be that as it may, a good smart phone, one that is much up-to-date could be very helpful and that is why smart phones are top 3 in our top 10 list of gifts for entrepreneurs.
2. Professional clothing
The runner up for this list, sitting at number 2 is professional clothing. Clothes can say a lot about a man and in a business world good dressing goes a long, long way. If you dress in the appropriate get-up. Full suits, tie in a proper knot and clean suit, then your client picks up on this and knows he is dealing with a professional. Not wearing work shoes or not wearing a tie and your client won’t take you serious at all. Don’t even dare go to business meeting in casual clothes, so it’s a good idea to gift a good suit. The young entrepreneur might need it or may only have one suit and it’s always a good idea to expand the wardrobe.
We now reach the top of the ladder; at first place we have laptop. For a young entrepreneur, a laptop is where it all starts. Planning through PowerPoint and handling customer complaints coming through email. There is so much work an entrepreneur does solely through his personal laptop that it becomes vital to his business. Every transaction is recorded on it and for some; it’s where they start their business so it’s basically the foothold of their hard work. This is why laptops top the top 10 list for useful Christmas gifts for young entrepreneurs.
