As a blogger, I can tell you that I sometimes forget to ask Santa to gift me tools needed for blogging. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a blogger or entrepreneur in your life, you’ve come to the right place. This post is full of great gift ideas for bloggers – ones we often forget about ourselves.

I put this post together because I hated the idea of my husband spending a bunch of money on gifts that weren’t helping me throughout the year. So instead, I compiled this list of 12 Insanely useful gifts that a blogger would need or at least would love to have!

Woman wrapping gift. Perfect gifts every blogger should ask Santa for.

I've read my share of design material on the internet and elsewhere, but I could tell from lesson 1 that Kimi's [graphic design] course is a cut above. Her visuals clearly show you what NOT to do, as well as how to make your design elements look as clean and professional as possible.

She laid everything out in such a clear, simple way. Even as a long-time Pinterest user, I learned some new strategies and design tips that have helped me to increase my traffic from Pinterest.
