Real bloggers from all over the world have asked a lot for this list of gift ideas for bloggers. It's a collection of the top picks on every blogger's wish list.   And if you're not a blogger, you probably have NO IDEA what kind of gifts your blogger friends and family really want.   We're unique kind of person, and the things we want, need, and love isn't always what most people want, need, and love.   But don't be afraid, my friend!   I'm here to help you avoid that shopping headache and the dreaded mistake of buying a thoughtful but unimpressive gift for that awesome blogger in your life.   I asked hundreds of full-time and part-time bloggers about their work over the past year.   I asked them what their top gift wish was for their blog.

Practical Gift Ideas for Bloggers

  We've put together a list of the most practical gifts that bloggers want and need, in no particular order.  

1. WEBSITE HOSTING

    Website hosting is something that every legit blogger has to pay for every year. It's cheap at first, but the price goes up as you get bigger.   Website hosting gives our blog a place to live on the internet that is safe. So, it's kind of a big deal for bloggers.   Wanna make a blogger's day? Give them a year of web hosting as a gift.   To pay for their website hosting directly, you'll need to be able to log into their hosting account. Or, you can buy a gift card that is already paid for and includes a note that says the gift is for website hosting.   Best practical gift ever!  

2. BLOGGING EDUCATION

    Most bloggers are looking for a good course or book that will help them improve their blogs and reach their goals.   If your blogging friends or family members haven't said what kind of blogging education they want to invest in, ask them what they're working on or learning about in their business right now.   Here are some great courses and e-books about blogging that would make great gifts. · Pinteresting Strategies by Carly Campbell This Pinterest marketing course was made by a well-known blogger and is one of the most popular options out there. Everyone who blogs has taken the course or wants to. It's also cheaper than most other options. Definitely a good choice for a present. · On-Page and Off-Page SEO e-book Bundle by Debbie Gartner This very cheap e-book bundle has two of my favorite learning tools for bloggers. When you buy the bundle, you get a nice discount, and these books make great gifts for bloggers. · Stupid Simple SEO by Mike Pearson This is a premium search engine optimization course that can completely change the game for any blogger who wants their content to show up on page one of Google. The only catch is that you have to first sign up for the free SEO training and then buy through the webinar (or through later promotional emails in the email series). · Affiliate Marketing, Simplified! by Cate Rosales This is my action-packed online course that shows you how to increase your affiliate marketing income as quickly and easily as possible. It's cheap, has a lot of information, and would make a great gift for bloggers who want to make more money from their blogs. · Product Perfection by Tracie Fobes This course will teach you everything you need to know to make your own digital products and sell them. This is a great and inexpensive educational resource or gift if you or your blogging friends have been wanting to sell printables or other digital products of your own.  

3. THE GIFT OF TIME

    If you know any bloggers in real life, you probably already know that we often have a lot going on.   It's a lot to try to make great content every day, build a business that makes money, deal with emergencies, and take care of other responsibilities.   So, here's an idea for a gift that bloggers won't forget: give them time! · Babysit their kids · Walk their dogs · Mow the lawn · Hire them a housecleaner · Run quick errands   A fun little coupon that they can use whenever they want would be a cute way to give this gift.  

4. THE GIFT OF AUTOMATION

If you want to save a few bucks and give them a gift that keeps on giving all year, you can buy them an annual plan. · Publer This is a scheduling tool for all kinds of social media, and it lets you make content that will be repeated for up to six months in advance!

7. EMAIL AUTOMATION

    Email marketing is an important part of being a blogger, so it's a necessary cost.   Don't be afraid to give an email service as a gift.   If the blogger you know doesn't already have an email marketing system set up, you can set one up for them using one of these platforms: · MooSend · Mailerlite · Converkit   If they are already using email marketing, you could give them a gift card or prepaid card for this cost.
