This is a list of the best gifts for bloggers who want to earn an income. These are what a blogger would buy themselves and what their blogging business needs.
Someone in one of my favorite blogging groups asked what blogger-related gifts she should put on her Christmas list. Instead of throwing out random stuff, I went to my client files and looked at what bloggers of all levels consider the best gifts for bloggers.

The Best Gifts for Bloggers: Training
By far, investing in one’s self and skill set will help any blogger to earn an income from their site. My suggestions:
- The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit – You will never get through all of the resources and that’s a good thing. With a plan, this is a valuable bundle.
- Building a Framework – I worked through this alongside a client and we both had epiphany moments.
- Affiliate Marketing – Every blogger needs to know affiliate marketing and this training can work for any niche (and it’s 100% ethical!).
- CreativeLive Photography and Photoshop Courses – Captivating images are crucial in growing a blog and the best courses for photography and photoshop are, without a doubt, on CreativeLive
- Dominate – Learn how to use a site’s own data to grow traffic!
Photography Products to Buy for the Blogger In Your Life
- iPhone/Android SD card reader (sooooo handy for those amazing social shots)
- Photo backdrops (inexpensive and can make the WORLD of difference for traffic from Pinterest – I have quite a few)
- An amazing dSLR non-kit lens perfect for blogging
- A well-rated speedlite flash.
Books to Grow Their Blogs and Earn an Income
- Pitching Perfection – a guide to earning an income from blogging by working with brands
- Automate Your Routines – a great book for blogging productivity
- A Blogger’s Simple Guide to Taxes – it will help them keep more money in their pocket and set up their online business for financial success
Schedulers Make Amazing Gifts for Bloggers
- CoSchedule – editorial calendar, social scheduler, and so much more (I have the $39 / month plan).
- Tailwind – If your blogger doesn’t have it yet, Tailwind has become the standard for Pinterest schedulers (and yes, they need a Pin scheduler to grow traffic and income).
My Favorite Finds
I also have this shelf for my treadmill and big, squishy heart love it. I can’t do Photoshop on there, but when I’m walking I can write, share to social, schedule, and email clients.
Memberships or Vouchers
- Photoshop – it’s so little each month to use the CreativeCloud (and it’s worth it)!
- PicMonkey – if your blogger is Photoshop-shy, grab this robust online editor for them
- CreativeMarket or Deposit Photo credits (stock photography, graphics, and design elements)
