We all have those friends who are addicited to social media whether they’re instagramming every meal, or liking every status that pops up in their newsfeed on Facebook. If you’re friends with me, I’m that friend. I know, sorry. I just love social media. With Christmas on the horizon, I’ve compiled a list of 9 social media inspired gifts your friends would love to recieve this year.
First off, you can thank the amazing Kim Garst at Boom Social for turning me onto these pillows. She had them out at Social Boom 2014 and they were a huge hit with everyone. You can snag your own social media pillows from lots of stores on Etsy but my favorites are at the CraftSquatch Etsy Shop – Pillows for Geeks!
2. Custom Hashtag Car Decal
All you need to do is search “social media” on Etsy and you get great ideas like this custom hashtag decal from DecalChic.
3. Hashtag Earrings
Seriously, how cute are these? Thank you Etsy! You can find this pair at PoseidonsBooty Etsy shop.
4. External Phone Charger
Like most of the social media obsessed, I am constantly on my phone and tablet. Running muliple apps, taking videos, and being social drains a lot of battery life. Having a back-up power source is critical! Checkout this option from Jackery over on Amazon.com. It makes a great stocking stuffer!
5. Twitter Coffee Mug
I have my own social media inspired coffee mug that has an @ symbol in place of the handle, but these Twitter mugs are awesome! Any Twitter lover would love to see this under the tree this year. Find yours on Amazon.com.
6. Facebook-Inspired Sticky Notes
I came across these in a quick Google search for social media gifts and with the amount of notes I leave everywhere, how do I not have these already? You can grab yours for less than $5 at FunSlurp.com.
7. Hashtag Cookie Cutter
Do you think Santa Claus will know it’s my house if I don’t leave a hashtag shaped sugar cookie out for him? Probably not. I should definitely pick one of these up before Christmas. You should snag one too over on Amazon from seller, Plast Clusive.
8. Smartphone Camera Lens
Let your social media geek friends take their Instagram pics to an all new level with an add-on lens for their iPhone. Olloclip seems to have mastered the iPhone camera lens addition so check it out at their website.
9. Books, Books, Books
Top social media influencers are constantly publishing new books that every social media lover should check out. Two of my recommendations are Will The Real You Please Stand Up: Show Up, Be Authentic, and Prosper in Social Media by Kim Garst and The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick. Both great books for your geeky friends. Pick yours up by clicking on the titles of the books above.
Did you get some good ideas for your social media obsessed friends? Or maybe you got some great ideas to add to your own Christmas wish list this year? Either way, this post was a lot of fun. There’s a pretty wide range in price from just a few bucks to over $50 so this list should fit any budget. Enjoy and be sure to share in the comments if you snagged any of these or what you got instead! I’d love to hear about it.
