How you start and end your day is very important. The 5-minute journal helps entrepreneurs stay positive and end their days being positive.

Writing down all the things you are grateful for just seems more powerful than typing it on the computer. Plus you can’t wrap an app.

If all else fails give them a referral. After all, the holidays are a great time to go full throttle in your business.

#24 Office Co-working Space

It just so happens that when entrepreneurs travel… we still work. Thankfully WeWork is an amazing co-working space that is located all around the USA. In just about every major city you can find a WeWork. Call them up, pay for a membership and tell your entrepreneur friend they now have office space for a month—or a year!

We Recommend:


#25 A Hug and Support

This might sound cheesy but sometimes this is the best gift you can give. Life as an entrepreneur is hard. And unless you walk the journey it is just impossible to know how challenging it can be. Give your special entrepreneur a big hug and tell them that while you might not understand it, you support all their decisions.

I recommend a big box of tissue too, cuz they might just cry out of happiness!

#26 Movie Tickets

Entrepreneurs are humans too. They get excited about non-work things. Like the release of the new Star Wars movie. Grab them a couple of tickets and tell them to take a break from all the hard work. Simple and cheap, but what a great gift!

#27 Apple or Google Play Gift Card

Be it to buy some new tunes, or download the cool new app. Having an Apple gift card is a great last minute present. You can rush over to CVS and pick one up while you are driving to that last minute holiday party.

We hope this gift guide will help you pick out some meaningful swag for that special entrepreneur in your life.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
