OK, I know the holidays are over and we did plenty of shopping and gift-giving. But, since we did start a new year and more importantly, a new decade, I'm sure we're all planning some serious goals for the next twelve months. Especially if you're a business owner or run a business.
Did you know that women in Utah account for more than 40% of the labor force? That's a lot of ladies and they need great gifts to start the new year off right. Here's a list of fantastic gifts for the female entrepreneurs, directors, managers, co-workers, and employees in your life that they'll love.
1. The Perfect Notebook
You know what they say: the pen is mightier than the sword. Well, I say that pens are fine and dandy, but without the perfect notebook, they're way less mighty. The right notebook is a keeper of great ideas, inspiration, thoughts, dreams, and everything in between. Personally, I like the classic Moleskine line, but there are a lot of other options. Stop by Tabula Rasa in Trolley Square to find just the right one. 2. Peace of Mind
This will sound obvious, but being an entrepreneur is stressful. If you add on juggling familial obligations and a social life, it makes it even more stressful. Give the gift of peace and self care with a meditation app. Try Headspace! It's an app that helps beginners learn how to meditate, then has meditation lessons for all kinds of topics, like getting better sleep, running, cooking, dealing with anxiety, and more. 3. A Subscription
Taking care of business means keeping up with business. Give the gift and power of knowledge with a subscription to the New York Times, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, or any other relevant publication.
Busy business-minded ladies don't always have time or patience to blow dry their hair. I speak from personal experience. Give them a gift certificate to a blow dry bar, like Styld where they can multitask, check emails, return messages, and get great hair all at the same time. 5. Business Cards
When you're hustling, you want people to remember who you are. Give the gift of brand recognition and memorability with some custom business cards. Moo has lots of customizable options to make your brand really stand out.
These are all great options for female entrepreneurs, but honestly, the best gift you can give them is your support, mentorship, and respect for their hustle. They'll appreciate that more than anything else.
