It's that time of year! Holidays, parties, family, friends and gift giving.
I know just as well as anyone that you can have that 'this-is-perfect!' gift idea forever, but when it's actually time to go make the purchase, you've may have forgotten what that perfect item was. Then your mind goes blank and you start to feel the pressure.
(In all honesty, I have a separate folder in my email that I send links to all year long. When I see something I just know my sister, best friend, mom, dad, etc. would love - I send it on over to my inbox for future reference. It helps out a lot!)
But, if you don't have a stash of ideas, or they're just not cutting it, check out these ideas for that special PR lady in your life. If she's anything like me and my gals, she's sure to love any of them.
When there's down time to read a book, 'just for fun,' she'll want something fantastic to pick up and dive into. Sometimes something light, fun and fluffy; but other times, something motivating that will still keep her mind thinking and learning.
Waking up to the bright sunshine is wonderful. But during the holiday season this gal will most likely get a little more downtime and will want to spend some of it catching up on all those zZz's she misses out on, on an all too regular basis. Blocking out the sun at these times is necessary.
A nice, light, relaxing scented candle is always wonderful for those long days, or weeks, that scream for a hot bubble bath. They're also perfect for her to burn right at her desk while she works.
A framed graphic or picture.
It may seem a little cliché, but if you pick one of her favorite quotes or pictures, and have it framed, she will love to hang it up in her office - at home or work.
What little lady doesn't love a nice piece of jewelry to add to her collection? (I can't think of one...) Every PR gal has at least a teensy social media obsession, and a piece with her twitter handle, or social icons, is always a quirky addition to any outfit - and can be a fun conversation starter. But, you can never go wrong with a simple silver piece from Tiffany.
Do any of you know a PR gal that isn't glued to her phone at
all most all times? (Okay, that might be a tiny exaggeration - we really can put those smart phones away sometimes!) Checking and being on that cell all day long can cause a battery to drain pretty quickly though, and there isn't always a place to charge up. A portable charger, that can be easily slipped into her purse, is always like gold when battery life starts to dwindle.
Whether it be a fabulously unique travel mug or even just a gift card to her favorite coffee shop - she will be eternally grateful that you have helped feed her caffeine addiction. (Or, at least until the caffeine buzz dies and she's ready for her next fix. ;) )
