Gadget Gift Ideas for Entrepreneurs

Have you been wondering what the remote worker in your life could really use for the Holidays? If you're more of a practical gift-giver, or if you yourself co-work and need gift suggestions to give others, this list is for you. Everything on it can help streamline the workday or add an extra sense of convenience. Plus, it's all available via Amazon Prime for one-step ordering. Happy shopping!

  • Savor Vault: This ingenious document storage system is like a folder – reinvented. With vertical and horizontal hanging files to sort all your important printouts, and 5 compartments across two pull-out drawers for storing smaller items, you'll be organized as soon as you sit down for the day and open it up. When you're finished, the dual magnetic and string-tie closures hold all your effects safely inside.
  • iVoler Laptop Stand: This aluminum-alloy laptop stand, available in 4 colors, is completely foldable and portable. It slides neatly into the included drawstring pouch, making it as convenient as it is functional. Adjustable, it also offers 6 height options to ease neck strain and make both meetings and marathon TV sessions more comfortable.
  • Video Conference Ring Lighting Kit: Small but mighty, this mini clip-on ring light comes with a bevy of options. Powered by USB, you can choose from 5 different color temperatures simulating natural daylight, and 5 different light intensities to suit whatever milieu you decide to work in that day. Never go unnoticed in a Zoom meeting again!
  • Hap Tim Carry-On Backpack with Laptop Sleeve: This large-capacity commuter backpack from Hap Tim is surprisingly stylish for how roomy it is. The two diagonal exterior pockets create visual interest, but it's the plethora of interior pockets, mesh pouches, and elastic cable holders that make it essential for anyone whose office travels with them. The inner laptop sleeve and shoulder straps are both thoroughly padded, and the square-mouth design makes it easy to pack and find your (many) belongings within. Choose from colors including mint green, sky blue, pink, and teal.
  • Caperci Stackable Lunch Box: One thing you'll almost certainly want to pack while coworking is lunch. This sleek Caperci container, inspired by the Japanese bento box, makes it simple to not only transport your meal, but prepare it, too. The locking lid up top stores the included utensils, while the middle compartment has 3 separate sections for snacks and sides, as well as a 'ramekin' space for condiments or dressing. The bottom compartment is split in half, but holds 4 cups total for a main dish (or even a bit of dessert)! It's safe in the dishwasher, the microwave – and, being leakproof, the inside of your backpack or tote.
  • Multi Charging Cable: Never get caught without your charger again. Which charger? All of them! With a USB on one end, and a Lightning charger, Micro USB, and Type C USB on the other, you can charge your devices simultaneously or just mix-and-match what you need to use. It's 4.3 feet long, and wrapped in nylon braiding to make it durable and long-lasting. USB adapter not included.
  • Silensys E7 Noise-Canceling Bluetooth Headphones: These candy-colored over-the-ear Bluetooth headphones make a statement: do not disturb! Whether your goal is to work in silence or to hear every last instrument in your favorite song, you'll be in your own little world with these noise-canceling Silensys headphones. They also have a built-in microphone for hands-free communication. They can work for 30 hours on a single charge, but don't worry about your ears getting sore, because the padding is said to be "marshmallow-like." Take clear calls and avoid distractions with a pair in red, yellow, green, or purple.
  • Ticktime Pomodoro Timer: This isn't your grandmother's kitchen timer. Designed with the Pomodoro time management system in mind, set this hexagonal timer on each of its sides to begin a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 minute work session. Then, watch as the color LED screen gradually counts down, cycling from red to green. The alarm can be muted, making it perfect for shared workspaces. Tiny enough to fit in your palm (or purse), this will be a game-changer for anyone who has trouble getting into a state of flow.
  • Desk Accessory Supply Set: This complete desk accessory kit is missing only the pens and pencils. It includes a stapler, scissors, tape dispenser, staple remover, phone stand, and more – all the essentials you'd find in an office, all in one place. Made in a translucent blue-to-yellow gradient acrylic with gold metal accents, it'll look elegant spread out on any hot desk or cafe bar counter.
  • SchoolCubez Portable Desk Organizer: This contraption is like a workspace in a bag – literally. What looks like an average travel portfolio with a handle actually folds out into a 3-walled cubicle with a base for stand-alone balance. But it's not just a desk divider, either. On each side of the "wall" are essential storage and organizational features: a document folder, headphone hanger, clipboard clip, supply pouches, and a zippered slot for notebooks or a laptop. It even comes with a whiteboard for brainstorming. Simply stow it and go, no need to remove any of your things. Make any shared workspace your own instantly with this foldaway cubicle.
  • Orbitkey Organizer Case with Wireless Charger: The Orbitkey Nest keeps all your small valuables in one place – and keeps them fully charged. Say goodbye to clutter with this handsome organization box that secretly hides a wireless charger embedded in the lid. It has designated spots for an SD card, credit cards, and a spare key, but the plastic inner dividers are modular to securely grip anything you put inside. This is perfect for commuting with important, easily-lost items such as a mouse, power adapter, USB flash drive, pocketknife, earbuds, and loose cash. Paired with internal padding for safety, you'll never break or misplace any of your essentials while on the go, or have to worry about low-battery alerts once at your destination.
  • HPRT Wireless Inkless Printer: This compact, wireless printer is the definition of 'convenience'. At a size of 12 x 2.5 x 2, it's significantly smaller than a normal printer, and it works via Bluetooth or USB. Ink isn't even needed, as it uses Thermal Transfer technology to print, and it's compatible with regular A4 sized paper. With its own charging cable and carrying case, this printer is as portable as they come.
