Social Media Manager Gift Guide
You Are a Badass Book: Social media managers are always looking for that extra push and motivation in their days to keep their brains flowing with ideas. This book is a constant reminder to be a “badass” and take over the social media world! I’ve personally read it twice and it’s the kick in the butt we all need.
Promising Review: “I love everything about this book. I’ve had my self doubt, depressed days, anxiety, struggled with obesity, lived paycheck to paycheck, and also had a time in my life I was just content and happy. It slipped away because I thought I had it all figured out. I didn’t, not really. This entire book tells the truth, you may not like it but it’s the real deal. I laughed, and nodded my head in agreement on many pages and can’t wait to buy and read it again. I gave my first copy to my mom when I was done. Words to live by…valuable for a husband, friend, sibling, anyone who is ready and eager to live a happy, fulfilling life.” -LTSA
Airpods: Listening to hype music or focus music is essential to keeping up the energy with long days looking at a phone or computer. Whether you are working in a crowded space or your office, AirPods are the perfect way to keep you in the zone. I don’t leave home without them!
PhoneSoap: With the pandemic making us cleaner and germ conscious as ever, the device every social media manager loves the most should be clean as well. Cell phones have become an extension of us and can be the last thing we think of cleaning. PhoneSoap is a UV sanitizer and kills 99.99%† of germs. I received mine for Christmas last year and have been obsessed ever since. I currently have the iPhone 12 Pro Max and it fits no problem!
Table Top Ring Light: Our daily lives now consist of Zoom meetings, eating, more Zoom meetings, and of course selfies for our social media. A table top ring light is an innovative way to brighten up a space, and adds professionalism to meetings.
Promising Review: “Easily stands on my desk at the perfect height, just above my opened laptop, and gives me pro-style lighting for my Zoom meetings at a fraction of the price for most alternatives.” -T.
Amazon Echo Show: With a full virtual schedule, it can be tough to stay on top of everything. The Amazon Echo Show can help manage the day with calendar reminders, phone call capabilities, built-in Alexa, and entertainment solutions. This is the device everyone should have in their home office.
Promising Review: “We keep the Amazon Show 8 in our kitchen, and the whole family enjoys using it. Display is perfect size on the kitchen counter. We enjoy playing music (sounds great) and of course, we enjoy asking Alexa for the temperature or the weather forecast, and asking basically any question you can think of. Recipe feature is excellent too!” -T.
LifePlanner by Erin Condren: Life can get overwhelming with so much happening at once, especially for social media managers who need to keep up with posting schedules and client calls. The LifePlanner by Erin Condren makes organization and planning fun and simple. For me, it’s made a world of a difference actually writing out my weekly plan and goals.
Ella Tote by Tory Burch: This is a personal favorite of mine! I use this bag daily for my laptop, planner, charger, and everything I need for the day. It also looks professional and trendy, instead of a boring laptop bag or backpack. It holds up very well and is extremely roomy.
Swell Bottle: Staying hydrated is key to maintaining energy throughout long workdays. Staring at a screen all day can be tough, so whether that be a refreshing cool drink to keep you awake or a relaxing hot drink at the end of the day, the Swell Bottle will do just the trick! The 17oz emulates a standard size water bottle and keeps beverages cold for 36 hours and hot for 18 hours. They come in so many fun colors and designs.
Custom Face Mask: The pandemic is still here and staying safe from COVID is a priority. Wearing a mask doesn’t have to be boring, especially as a social media manager whose job is being creative. You can customize your own face masks to help you feel confident and stylish all the time. I added my business logo to mine!
Starbucks + Dunkin’ Gift Cards: A dose a caffeine is the perfect remedy for a long and tiring day of rocking the social media world! Any gift card to Starbucks, Dunkin, or the local coffee shop is sure to brighten a social media manager’s day. That first sip of coffee in the morning or late afternoon can boost the day and help produce some killer content. I can never get enough coffee gift cards. They are always appreciated!
