The Ultimate Gift Guide for Marketers and Copywriters

out of focus, multi-colored string lights on a dim background


I always have a tough time buying gifts for others, especially my work colleagues. No one wants to buy the gift that ends up unwanted by everyone else in the White Elephant/Yankee Swap pool. So I thought it would be both helpful and fun to gather a few ideas onto a list of gifts for marketers and copywriters. (Other work colleagues outside of marketing could also enjoy these items, too.)

These should provide some inspiration as you’re doing any holiday shopping. Or maybe you’ll find something for yourself.
