Holidays. Birthdays. Thinking of you. Whatever your reason for shopping, at some point you’ve probably found yourself in a nail-biting moment in Target trying to find that just-right gift for someone. Well, when it comes to gifts for business owners, I have a few ideas!
I’m sharing the best gifts for business owners (alternate title: Alexis’ favorite things 😂) that any biz owners in your life will appreciate. You can also give these items to loyal customers and clients to show appreciation. But it’s not required that you give anything away 😉 Shopping for yourself is welcome.

Growth is a big part of owning a business (and arguably one of the most stress-inducing). Below are programs and websites that make a great gift for a business owner who is looking to start or grow their business.
Tools + Templates from Laugh Eat Learn – I might be a little bias, but my selection of tools and templates for business owners is a perfect place to start shopping! I’ve designed a few things that I personally use in my business, and things that my clients have asked for, between handwritten fonts, calendar pages, and brand boards. A lot goes into growing your business so stop by the LEL Shop for a step in the right direction!
Pixistock Subscription* – Social media made easy? Yes, please! This website houses a huge library of stock photography (including BIPOC-friendly photos), Canva templates, guides, videos, social media content planners, and more to make social growth easy as that store-bought holiday pie (I’m right there with you 😉).
Bluchic Themes + Funnels* – Taking your brand to the next level? Bluchic includes stunning WordPress themes, funnel templates, and social media templates to make branding cohesive and simple.
Flodesk* – Make 2024 the year of email marketing. Flodesk is the perfect gift for a business owner who wants to expand their marketing power and begin writing newsletters. Get 50% off with my affiliate link.
Canva* – Canva is every business owner’s dream. With a Pro account, they can design images for social media, presentations, PDFs, and way more with premade templates and tons of stock photos.
The Systems Shop – Growth is hard fought without systems in place. The Systems Shop helps entrepreneurs streamline the backend of their business, so it can run smoothly.
Want a gift for a business owner to liven up their workspace? Make their workspace fun and functional with these gifts.
Rainbow Window Cling* – Nothing is more peaceful than a room full of rainbows (just take my word for it)! This gift is a simple way to add some joy to an entrepreneur’s day and literally light up the room.
27” Display Monitor* – Having two monitors is an absolute game-changer. This is the perfect gift for the business owner who always has split screen going and one hundred tabs open.
Portable Monitor* – Love to work on the road or hit up co-working spaces? This portable monitor is a game changer. It brings the same experience to a dual monitor at home to your local coffee shop. I recently bought one myself and was impressed by how easy and lightweight it is!
Personalized Calendar Dry Erase Board* – There are a lot of to-do’s to balance as a business owner. Help them keep everything organized (and stylish) with a personalized calendar.
Ember Temperature Control Mug* – Need a gift for the coffee-lover in your life? This mug keeps their coffee at the perfect temperature, so they sip all day long. (If you give these to clients, I have a feeling they will be thanking you for a long time.)
Noise Cancellation Headphones* – This is the perfect gift for a business owner currently sharing office space or who loves to completely zone into their work. I use these to help me focus and highly recommend them.
Logitech Camera with Privacy Screen* – Need a gift for a business owner constantly in Zoom meetings? This Logitech camera has great resolution for the price, and it has a built-in privacy screen (for extra peace of mind).
Apple Magic Mouse* – There is nothing worse than your mouse dying mid-project 😩 Gift them a backup mouse for those days that never seem to go as planned.
Being a business owner is tough. These gifts for a business owner help them stay in the right mindset, so they can give it their best each day.
Motivational Daily Flip Calendar* – Sometimes the best gift for a business owner is one that keeps them going, even on the tough days. This flip calendar has an inspirational quote for each day of the year, and it’s not specific to any particular year.
Cup of Ambition* and Minding my Own Small Business Cup* – Motivation + a pun = a winning gift. These mugs can be filled with joe at the start of the day, and something a little ✨spicier✨ after a long day of work.
Five Minute Journal* – Research shows that gratitude can have a big impact on mental health and mindset. This is the gift for a business owner who needs a boost of confidence or help building healthy routines.
Calm Subscription – Ask any entrepreneur, and they’ll probably tell you they think about business nonstop. It can make it hard to fall asleep or enjoy free time. The calm app has guided meditations and mindfulness exercises to quiet their mind. I use this app daily!
Having a solid plan is essential for a busy entrepreneur. Gift a business owner some peace of mind this holiday.
Peacefully Productive Planner – I can’t speak highly enough of the Peacefully Productive Planner. It uses the Hustle Sanely© 5 to help business owners (or anyone with a busy life…so, everyone 😉) nurture themselves and stay on top of key tasks each day.
Daily Planning Notepad – As a fellow notepad girly, I can tell you about the lifesaving powers of the daily notepad. The Focus 3 keeps me on track – and it’ll do the same for any overwhelmed biz owner in your life.
Printable Quarterly Calendar and Calendar Bundle – You remember how I said entrepreneurs’ brains are always on? That’s because there is always something to do. These quarterly and yearly planners can be printed and hung in an office to keep business goals on track – instead of trying to juggle all the goals and dreams in their head.
Black Paper Mate Inkjoy Pens* or Black and White Empowerment Pens* – Need a simple gift for a business owner they are bound to love? You can’t go wrong with pens. The Inkjoy are my go-to pens, and somehow I’m always losing them. You can never have enough!
Limited Edition Post-It Notes* and Post-it Notes Camera Dispenser* – Know a Post-it note fiend? Ya know, the solopreneur whose entire desk is littered with sticky notes. Yeah, this is the gift for them.
I hope you find a gift from this list that a business owner you know will love! If not, I hope you at least found something you wanted to snag 😉
