Are you seeking Christmas gifts for bloggers – products that they will LOVE? Check out this EPIC holiday gift guide for gadgets and even stocking stuffers, which was created with suggestions from real bloggers! The blogging friends and family members in your life will thank you when they open your gift – and not give you the stink eye!!!
In case you’re wondering, I’m Carla, and I’m a blogger. If you have a blogger in your life, you might be wondering what kind of Christmas gifts for bloggers work the best – things that they will actually use, and even love. While I always have a running wish list in my mind for blogging gifts that I’d like to receive, I also surveyed my blogging friends in the Pajama Affiliates blogger group, which has hundreds of bloggers from all over the world.
I’m glad I asked them, because they came up with a ton of other ideas that I hadn’t even considered! Bloggers are often misunderstood, as non-bloggers don’t always understand what it is that we do. But if you give the blogger in your life a gift that helps support their efforts, they will be grateful – and I’m happy to give you the inside scoop!
Top Picks for the Best Christmas Gifts for Bloggers
Starting with the top picks for Christmas gifts for bloggers, these are the most requested blogger gifts suggested by real bloggers! These are the favorite gifts that my blogger friends have already received, or are hoping to get!
You’ll notice that these gifts range from gadgets to comfort, as well as everything in between. This is because we bloggers spend a lot of time sitting in front of our computers! Gifts that improve our ability to be productive while being comfortable are #1 in my book. So whether you know a fashion blogger, beauty blogger, travel blogger, food blogger, or even Instagram blogger, there is something here for them, that will earn you major points in the support department!
An Adjustable Standing Desk Makes a Great Christmas Gift for a Blogger!
My blogger friend Kim says that she’d love to receive this adjustable standing desk as a Christmas gift. Studies have shown that sitting for too long isn’t the healthiest choice, so a lot of bloggers are switching to standing desks. This particular desk is great because it adjusts to your standing height, and you can also adjust it later so you can sit if you like. My friend Lesley says that she’d love to have this in her kitchen, as that is where she does much of the work on her mom blog. This adjustable desk can be easily folded up, and moved out of sight!
An HD Webcam Is A NIFTY Christmas Gift For A Blogger!
A laptop’s webcam is good, but an HD webcam is even better! So yes, HD webcams make phenomenal Christmas gifts for bloggers! Many of us bloggers use video for their making video blogs, giving live stream videos, and even creating online courses, and this particular webcam is a favorite. Jim uses his HD webcam to teach guitar lessons via Skype, and Lesley says: “I look really good on this camera, and I don’t know why. It’s got like a magic filter or something!” The cool thing about having a webcam that plugs into a USB port is that you can also use it with a mini-tripod. I have a travel case for mine, so I can store the webcam and tripod when I’m not using it.
A Charging Station Makes a Great Christmas Gift for a Blogger!
A charging station is a practical Christmas gift for a blogger, as we often have several devices charging at one time: smartphones, tablets, etc. And if your blogger lives with others (maybe even you?), it’s even more handy, as this charging station enables you to charge 6 devices at one time!!! What a time-saver!
A Digital SLR Camera Makes a Fantastic Gift For a Blogger!
A digital SLR camera is a fantastic Christmas gift for a blogger, as it will enable him or her to improve their blog photography game. Photos on our blog, and especially Instagram – require that our photos are sharp as well as beautiful. My friend Sarah loves her Canon EOS Rebel DSLR camera, and says it’s great for beginning blog photographers. Another fun fact about digital SLR cameras is that you are also able to record high definition video as well, which is an added benefit.
Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones Are A Thoughtful Blogger Gift
Bluetooth noise cancelling headphones are a great Christmas gift for a blogger because they allow us to focus on writing blog posts without being distracted. They also enable us to edit audio and video without disturbing others. My friend Regina is a “digital nomad”, which means that she enjoys blogging while traveling around the world. She often finds herself in co-working offices in various surrounded by all kinds of sounds (and noisy people), and these headphones block out everything else, so she can get her work done. These headphones are comfortable, as they cover the ears, and they are wireless too!
A Laptop Table For Bed Is A SWEET Gift For a Blogger!
Confession time: this laptop table for bed is the Christmas blogging gift that I already got for myself! There are times – especially in the winter – that I don’t feel like getting out of bed. My kitchen where I usually work is drafty in the winter. So when it’s cold I’ll bring my laptop to bed, and get my work done. This laptop table looks like a breakfast tray, but it has a split top surface, so a laptop can be tilted to eye level for comfortable typing. This laptop table also has vents for your computer’s fan. It also has a mini side drawer for a flash drive or or portable mouse. I LOVE this thing – can you tell?
A Desktop USB Microphone Is An Awesome Gift for a Blogger!!!
Desktop USB microphones are the standard for bloggers who are also podcasters or video bloggers (aka vloggers). The standard microphone that’s built into a computer is good, but USB microphones give a higher level audio quality, and they plug right into a computer’s USB port. Lots of bloggers are starting podcasts these days, and a USB microphone will be much appreciated. You can also get an inexpensive pop filter that removes the vocal pops that happen naturally during speaking.
Blog Post Planners Are FANTASTIC Gifts For Bloggers!!
One of these days I will have to publish my own blog post planner, as they are a super helpful gift for bloggers everywhere! Aysha recommended blog post planners as they enable bloggers to plan blog post themes, topics, interviews, keywords, etc. – all in one organized calendar. In the meantime, here are two blog post planners that I recommend!
Practical Christmas Gift Ideas For Bloggers: Online Courses
Online courses make great blogger gifts, as they teach the skills to help them improve their skills, and grow their online business. Below I have listed a few of my favorites that I have used myself:
Online Entrepreneur is the course I created to teach bloggers how to create their own digital products, from eBooks, online courses, to printables. If the blogger in your life is looking for ways to create income with their blog, digital products are a great step!
From Bricks to Clicks
From Bricks to Clicks is my signature course, which teaches a system for a blogger to create their own online business. From doing online market research, to creating lead magnets, to building an email list, this course creates a solid business foundation for a blog business. It is constantly being updated, and can be used to plot an escape from a 9-5 desk job!
Livestream U: Facebook Live For Business
Livestream U is another one of my online courses. This one teaches bloggers how to use Facebook Live to grow their online business. Live video is a game changer, and can be used in just about every industry to promote products and services. All types of livestream video styles are included, as well as tips to create effective livestreams.
If the blogger in your life is new to blogging, they will eventually be hearing about WordPress, which is the standard for many bloggers. By the way, this blog you’re reading now is created with WordPress. WordPress is a super flexible content management system which bloggers use to post their blogs, photos, audio and video content. But they don’t have to learn WordPress by trial and error. My friend Melissa teaches this WordPress 101 course that will have your blogger self-sufficient in no time!
Beginner’s Blogging Business Bundle
If your blogger friend or loved one is a total newbie, I highly recommend Pajama Affiliates’ Beginner Blogging Business Class Bundle. This is a package of several blogging classes that teach how to create a blog that is targeted – and makes money. Pajama Affiliate classes are super affordable, and preferable to blogging by trial and error. I wish I had found them 10 years ago!!!
If the blogger in your life is a fan of Pinterest, it may be important to point out that Pinterest is a great way to drive traffic to their blog. Melissa at Blog Clarity has a winning strategy for Pinterest, and she lays it all out in this course. Melissa’s day job is managing social media for Burt’s Bees, and also works closely with Pinterest managers, so she knows what works – and what doesn’t. The course also includes a Facebook group for extra support!
Christmas Gifts For A Blogger Who Has Everything!
What’s a good Christmas gift for a blogger who has everything? How about an iPad tablet? Tablets are great for working on the go. Aysha likes tablets because they are easy to carry around and use for blogging needs wherever you are. Add an Apple Pencil and a stylish case, and your blogger will be all set!
What’s a Priceless Christmas Gift for a Blogger? The Gift of Community!
Last year I received an awesome blogger Christmas gift, which is the gift of community! The life of a blogger can be lonely and isolating, especially you don’t have other friends who understand what you are doing. I’ve gotten used to trying to share my excitement over a new blog post I’m working on, or the marketing strategy, only to watch the eyes of my non-blogging friends glaze over. But it’s okay. I am now part of the private Pajama Affiliates VIP Group (aka the VIP Pajama Party!) where I can chat with other professional bloggers about blog post ideas and strategies. Run by my friends Robin and Lesley at Pajama Affiliates, I always feel right at home!
Smartphone Stands Also Make Great Gifts For Bloggers!
Smartphones are awesome, and I don’t know how we lived without them. Most bloggers have a smartphone, which enables them to create content at any time, but there are many times when we need our hands free in order to record audio or video. This is where smartphone stands come in handy (pun intended). There are various styles available, from flexible grip tripod, to bluetooth enabled, to gooseneck, and your favorite blogger will appreciate the convenience!
Blogger Gifts That Help Them Work From Anywhere!
If you want to give a Christmas gift to a blogger that will win you extra points, give them a gadget that helps them do their work from wherever they are. Robin blogs from the beach, Kate blogs while camping, and Stacy blogs during her kids’ dental visits. Other bloggers love the digital nomad lifestyle of blogging from co-working spaces from Mexico to the Czech Republic. Blogging is often a 24/7 job, that we find ourselves doing anywhere and everywhere, so any tool that helps us take our blog on the road is a treasure!
Great Christmas Gift Ideas For Bloggers: Online Tools
One of the first things a blogger will do when they decide to get serious about their online business is start a mailing list, and ConvertKit is my favorite email service provider. Using a service like Gmail is limited, and doesn’t offer analytics or automation, so I recommend ConvertKit , as it offers many tools for organizing and analyzing subscriber data.
If your blogger friend (niece, or dad) gets into selling digital products, they will eventually learn how to create sales pages online. Leadpages is an online landing page builder which my blogging friends and I use to create eye-catching sales pages, webinar pages, and more. Leadpages also integrates with email service providers like ConvertKit. which saves time and headaches!
SiteGround Web Hosting
If a blog is like a home on the web, webhosting is the real estate on which blog “lives” online. If your blogger friend is building a new blog, or looking to move web hosts, SiteGround is a reputable company with great customer service!
Studiopress Themes for WordPress
Bloggers are often updating the look and feel of their blog, and Studiopress WordPress blog themes offer all kinds of styles for just about any niche or industry. Whether your blogger friend is into fashion or food, Studiopress has a theme that can be configured to reflect their personality. By the way, this blog you’re reading uses a Studiopress theme too!
Easy Product Displays (EPD)
Affiliate bloggers who promote products on Amazon and other sites rave about Easy Product Displays (EPD), as this service makes it easy to create multiple- product grids that show products in an appealing way – with actual Amazon “Buy” buttons. To give you an idea of how EPD works, I’m also using EPD in this blog post, which gives my layouts a big boost. And it’s easy to use too!
Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool
The #1 thing that most bloggers want is traffic to their blog, and one of the best ways to get traffic is to optimize their blog for search engines, such as Google. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is not something to be guessed or taken for granted. Using a tool like Jaaxy enables bloggers to choose keywords and phrases that people are actually using – so they can rank on page #1 – and be found by the readers who need them.
Great Christmas Gift Ideas For Bloggers: Books
We can’t forget that books about blogging and online business also make great Christmas gifts for bloggers! I’ll admit that there is a bit of a learning curve to blogging and creating an online business, so reading books on these topics will save a lot of time! Here are some books recommended by me and my blogging friends!

Journals and Pens Are Also Well-Loved Blogger Gifts
You may ask why a blogger would like journals and pens for a Christmas gift, and I understand that. But you might be surprised at the level of dreaming, planning, and brainstorming that happens before a blog post goes online. I personally like to keep random ideas and topics in a journal that I can review later. And as for pens, I’ll just quote Sheila who says “gel pens… because pretty writing”. There is definite connection between the brain and the hands when writing, and my journals and pens are indispensible blogger tools!
Gifts of Comfort Are The BEST Christmas Gifts for Bloggers!
Sitting in one place to blog for long stretches of time can get uncomfortable, so it’s a treat to work from home in comfy clothes. When I first surveyed my Pajama Affiliates’ friends (who work from home in their pajamas!), Robin responded right away: “Only thing that comes to my mind at the moment is warm fuzzy socks. My feet get so cold under my desk in the winter.” Soon after, I received a slew of Christmas gifts for bloggers responses in the clothes category, such as bootie slippers and even a warm poncho to wear while writing. So comfort is not something a blogger takes for granted!

Cozy Toes Are Much Appreciated Blogger Christmas Gifts!
I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised at the Christmas gifts for bloggers requests that were related to keeping their feet warm. But I had no idea of the various products that were available! Fern says she couldn’t imagine not having her foot warming heater – and it also has a remote control unit available. Michelle, the self-proclaimed cold feet expert, says that she always wears woolen socks and adhesive toe warmers. I had no idea that these things existed myself , so I’m glad I asked!
Coffee and Tea Make Tasty Christmas Gifts For Bloggers!
Most people run on caffeine, and bloggers are no different! Coffee is a stimulant for the mind and body, so your favorite blogger may enjoy new ways to enjoy their coffee or tea habits!
