Nearly 27% of all Americans with full-time employment have a side hustle, and of those, nearly 42% of them said that they would like to grow their business. This is good news if one of them is that person who is hard to buy for on your holiday list, or it is a great way to help your loved ones out if you happen to be that person. This gift idea list gives you 45 great ideas for some of the best gifts for entrepreneurs this season.
What Do Entrepreneurs Truly Appreciate?
If the person that you have in mind is just starting a side hustle, then they are the easiest to buy for because aspiring business owners always need things for their small business. When thinking about unique gifts for your favorite entrepreneur, don’t just think about their business, but think about things that they might need to try to keep a work-life balance. Maintaining spiritual and mental health is just as important as tending to the bottom line. If the entrepreneur in your life has a hobby outside of their work, it is even better. Think about these things first!
