When buying gifts for a freelancer, you may find yourself struggling. With the freedom and lifestyle that contracting brings, it can seem like they have it all.
If you’re running short on ideas, we’ve put together the below gift guide to give you some inspiration.
Noise cancelling headphones
Whether your contractor needs to drown out noise working in a public space or stay focused on a tight deadline, noise cancelling headphones can make the working day more enjoyable.
Purchasing additional cloud-based storage can help contractors keep hold of the important files they may need later on.
Dropbox Advance offers unlimited storage space, so files will never need to be deleted down the line. This option is cheaper than a new laptop and files can be accessed from anywhere.
A getaway break
Life can be stressful for the self-employed, so an experience day is a good opportunity to step away from work and relax. A voucher for a spa day or a city break could be the perfect gift to help that special someone to unwind this festive season.
Check Groupon for a list of offers and experiences in their area.
A daily planner
Organisation is key to keeping a contractor’s work running as seamlessly as possible. A planner can make the ideal gift for the freelancer who prefers pen and paper to the digital alternatives.
Kikki.K offers a great selection of daily planners which help to prioritise both professional and personal lives and bring focus to each day.
USB mug warmer
Caffeine can be a contractor’s lifeblood, and when the work starts to pile up, nothing helps like a hot cup of coffee. This Christmas, give something functional with a USB mug warmer. This is powerful enough to keep a mug warm for hours, saving the need for constant dashes to the kitchen.
App store gift cards
Whether the gift card is used to buy an app to help streamline their work, an album to help focus or a boxset to indulge in, it’s sure to be well-received.
How can Parasol help?
