Earlier this year we explained how to prepare for holiday gift guides like a PR pro. Now, we’re offering a gift guide of our own! Here are our top holiday gift choices – we’re sure you’ll find something for everyone on your list.
Note that some of these fantastic gifts are made by our clients!
1. For the Road Warrior: TYLT Energi+ Backpack ($170)
Our client TYLT makes some of the most useful charging products out there. The Energi+ Backpack is a rugged, TSA-approved bag that features an internal 5,200 mAh battery to keep your devices charged on the go. A great gift for students or on-the-go professionals, the Energi+ Backpack keeps all of your mobile devices fully charged and your belongings organized. The internal rechargeable battery can charge three devices simultaneously and increase devices’ battery life by 700% (up to 4 full smartphone charges)!
2. For the Music Lover: Spotify Premium Subscription ($10/month)
This is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Spotify Premium instantly gives you access to over 30 million of songs (and counting). What more could a true music lover want than all of their favorite songs at their fingertips? Plus, since their songs can be stored on their mobile device and in the cloud, they can show off their awesome playlists to their friends no matter where they are. The BIGfish account team certainly appreciates a good Spotify playlist!
3. For the Gadget Guru: Ring ($199)
It might seem like the tech-lover on your list already has all the latest gadgets, but I bet they don’t have a connected doorbell! Another one of our client’s products, the Ring Video Doorbell blends convenience, monitoring and security into one sleek, simple and powerful wireless doorbell. By streaming live audio and video of a home’s front doorstep directly to a smartphone or tablet, Ring enables homeowners to see and speak with visitors from anywhere in the world via the free Ring iOS or Android app. Ring’s built-in motion sensors trigger instant mobile alerts when they detect movement, giving you the ability to know what’s happening on your property at all times. A great gift that makes any home or office more secure, HD cloud recording captures every activity detected by Ring’s motion sensors, and footage can be reviewed instantly or sent to family and friends.
4. For the PR Pro: Energi Sliding Power Case ($99)
Another one of our personal favorite products from our client TYLT is the Energi Sliding Power Case. TYLT’s charging cases feature a removable power sleeve that increases phones’ battery life by 100%. Slide off the power sleeve to enjoy the protective inner case. When we’re running around at a press event all day fighting for Wi-Fi as we call, email and text reporters and clients, that dreaded low battery notification always pops up too soon. Staying charged and connected is a critical part of our job, and with the Energi Sliding Power Case, our phones are never out of juice! You can get this case for iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 (and soon the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus).
5. For the #SocialMedia Manager: The Tweet Mug ($13.42)
We all know that social media is a 24/7 job, and that job doesn’t get done without a healthy dose (or two, or three) of caffeine. Pair this perfect mug with a pack of specialty k-cups for the Keurig you know they have, and the social media manager in your life will certainly appreciate it – we know we would!
6. For the Wanderluster: A Trip to Majestic Iceland ($priceless)
The BIGfish team has been working with client Iceland Naturally for quite a few years now and we are well aware of what this amazing country has to offer. With some of the most unique, vast and hauntingly beautiful landscapes in the world, Iceland is the traveller’s dream. On a single trip to the land of ice and fire you can see magnificent glaciers, black sand beaches, go whale watching, see the northern lights, watch geysers explode and even venture into the magma chamber of a volcano! Check out Icelandair’s incredibly affordable travel packages and Like and follow our client Iceland Naturally on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on the latest contests, sweepstakes and promotions.
We hope our gift guide helps inspire your holiday shopping! Happy holidays!
