I'm Amanda. I'm a business and marketing coach for ambitious entrepreneur who want to create a freedom lifestyle. I travel around the world full time and spent most my days in Thailand, Vietnam or Bali. I'm a strategy and systems girl and here to help you scale your business and become unstoppable.
Today I’m sharing some great gifts for new business owners, guaranteed to impress the entrepreneur in your life. It can be tough deciding what to get them—chances are, they were so excited when they launched, they went out and bought all the typical “business” things they could think of.
On the other hand, they may say they don’t need anything at all, leaving you clueless as to what to buy. This list will help you choose the perfect present—maybe even one your friend doesn’t realize they needed!
Here are 11 gifts for entrepreneurs they’ll actually be excited to get.
Gifts for New Business Owners: Self-Care
Bring a little calm to your entrepreneur friend’s hectic day with a scented candle. If she’s also a traveler or digital nomad, she’ll love these destination-themed candles from Homesick!
If there’s one thing you’re going to need as a new entrepreneur, it’s caffeine! Pick up your friend’s favorite brand or splurge on a gourmet roast for her to try over the holiday season. If she’s not a coffee drinker, go for tea instead—either way, she’ll be grateful when she settles in to work with a cozy hot drink.
I love the coffee subscription Misto Box that sends you fresh beans every few weeks from all over the world. Or if you’re into tea, check out this tea subscription box (because who doesn’t love a good subscription box?!).
Learning and self-development are HUGE when it comes to starting a business, which is why books are one of the best gifts for new business owners.
You don’t have to choose something business-specific. In fact, reading in areas outside of your industry is a great way to get your creative juices flowing and come up with new ideas.
Starting a business is a wild time. It’s amazing, exciting, energizing…and also just a little bit stressful. Show your friend you’re thinking of her with a subscription to a meditation app like HeadSpace or Calm.
Gifts for New Business Owners: For Their Office
Plants are proven to reduce stress, clean the air, and even improve productivity—making them one of the best gifts for new business owners!
Ferns, succulents, and ZZ plants are your best bet for low-maintenance greenery. The Sill has some great holiday options.
Pretty quote or motivation board
Staring at a blank wall all day isn’t very inspiring. Print a copy of your friend’s favorite quote to hang on the wall above their desk, or buy a blank cork board for her to make her own vision board. You can browse my Entrepreneur Quotes Pinterest board for inspiration!
Let’s be real, your friend is probably cranking away on her laptop at all hours of the day and getting minimal outdoor time. A little extra sunshine is just what she needs—not to mention we could all use a winter pick me up! Check out this listof the top 5 sunlight lamps available on Amazon.
Pretty notebook or planner
For the girl who likes to see it all on paper. Yes, we all love Google Calendar and ClickUp, but there’s something special about writing things by hand.
Notebooks are one of the best gifts for female entrepreneurs. They’re great to have on hand for client calls, and they also encourage regular journaling, which is a habit I highly recommend for entrepreneurs at all stages!
My all-time favorite notebook is “The Go-To Notebook” on Amazon because it’s strong but also flexible and great quality!
Get some distraction-free work hours in with a pair of noise-canceling headphones. These are a must-have for entrepreneurs who work out of noisy cafes (or have intruding family members). They’re also a life-saver when you’re traveling, especially in busy cities. I’m not sure I would have survived Da Nang without them (if you have lived in Vietnam, you know).
Help your friend get Insta-ready with a ring light! Not only will she look more professional on client calls, but she’ll also be able to take next-level Instagram photos. It’s easy to see why ring lights are one of the top gifts for female entrepreneurs.
Phone Suction Holder
If you’re looking for affordable gifts for new business owners, these phone holders will do the trick. For less than $15, your friend will be able to record hands-free Reels and TikToks on the go! All she needs is a flat surface and one of these Nano suction holders.
I’m Amanda and I believe building a business is not an escape from your current life—it’s so much more than that. It’s a chance to redefine your identity, your future, and everything you grew up believing about what “success” looked like. That freedom you’re craving and the vision board of jet-setting? We’re going to turn that into your reality, all you have to do is make the first move.
I help female entrepreneurs confidently walk away from their soul-crushing corporate jobs (forever) and live the laptop lifestyle with systems + strategies that book out their business and make bank.
It’s time to start living your life on your own terms—whatever that means to you. And I'm here to help you grow your business and make that a reality.
