Wondering what to buy that person in your life who is addicted to the computer and blogging? Christmas is just around the corner and I have some ideas for you:
Every blogger needs someplace to jot down their thoughts and plan out blog posts. There’s something about getting away from the computer and sitting down with a journal that helps get the flow of ideas started. This leather journal from Kiki James is one I recently received and it is simply beautiful. The cover is a soft, buttery leather and the pages have almost a handmade paper feel to them. They have a variety of colors and styles- I got the pink one. The paper is unlined, so it’s nice for doodling design ideas as well as scribbling notes.
ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income is required reading for anyone who is new to blogging, as well as those who have been doing it for years. Just take a look at this story of what one experienced blogger learned from the book and the difference it made in her career and life. I’ve read the book and highly recommend it.
How about a blogging t-shirt? The WiFi Detector t-shirt is genius!

Anti-Glare Filter for the Computer Screen
Staring at the computer for hours and hours can be very hard on the eyes. An anti-glare filter screen is a perfect gift for computer addicts.
Good lighting at one’s desk is essential. I have this one from Target and it’s beautiful.
Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse
I have this awesome Microsoft wireless keyboard and optical mouse and I LOVE it. The keyboard is not SO ergonomic that it’s difficult to use, but it just has a little curve to it that makes it much more comfortable.
Coffee is always a great gift for those who drink it. If the person you’re buying for is not a coffee drinker, then how about some candy? I hear that Shock-A-Lots are awesome, and this caffeine candy sampler is pretty cool too.
Sitting in front of the computer for a long time can lead to a stiff neck and shoulders, and bloggers are notoriously bad about getting away from the desk to loosen up a bit. A massage would definitely be a welcome gift.
What about you? What do you want for Christmas?
