Trying to find those perfect social media gifts for that special social media manager in your life? Well, you came to the right place.
I’ve scoured the internets to find the most useful and unique gifts to give anyone who loves social media in 2015. Here are some can’t miss options…
Social media gifts 2015
1. Snapchat beach towel – $25
Nothing says you’re hip to the newest social media trends quite like strolling up to the pool in your official Snapchat yellow beach towel. Not quite ready to go this public with your love of the ephemeral social network? You can buy a Snapchat backpack instead. Or plush toy. Or playing cards.
2. Emoji stickers – $3
If you’re a social media manager, then you no doubt love your emojis. Now, there’s no reason to limit your use of emojis to the digital world. These emoji stickers will let you put emojis on pretty much anything (cards, letters, pets). So when you can’t come up with the right words to use, use a monkey with his hands over his eyes instead. See also: emoji pillows.
3. iPhone video accessories – $130
Video is the hottest thing going in social media, so why not help your favorite social media editor fully equip their phone for making great videos. Here’s my super-affordable list of accessories to get great video and audio from your iPhone (more details in this post about iPhone video tools).
- IK Multimedia iRig PRE ($36.99)
- 25-foot XLR cable ($14.99)
- Behringer XM8500 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone ($19.99)
- AmazonBasics 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod to keep it all steady ($23.49)
- Shoulderpod to attach your phone to a tripod ($34.90)
If you really love them, get them this 360 degree video camera for only $350. It’s going to be all the rage in 2016.
Gary Vaynerchuk writes some of the best books going on the world of social media. Do your favorite social media manager a favor and give them the entire @garyvee collection…
- Crush It ($12.91)
- The Thank You Economy (21.46)
- Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook ($17.85)
- #AskGaryVee ($21.11)
5. iTunes gift cards – $25+
Testing out all the latest and greatest apps for social media can get tiresome. And expensive. Throw an iTunes gift card in someone’s stocking so they won’t feel bad about shelling out $2 for the Legend motion graphics app (seriously, you should shell out $2 for this app).
6. Hootsuite Pro – $10/month
Nothing says you’re serious about social media more than being a certified Hootsuite professional (emoji stickers come close). Give someone a Hootsuite Pro account and they will have access to all of Hootsuite’s tools to learn about social media. And they can take the test to become certified (I did it, so it can’t be that hard).
7. Selfie stick – $14
I’m going to assume a good social media manager already has one of these. But just in case they don’t (or you think they need a back-up), here’s the selfie stick I use. It even comes in a variety of colors.
This gift won’t exactly fit under the tree, but sign your favorite social media manager up for my weekly email newsletter on what’s new in the world of social media and digital marketing. It’s the gift that keeps on giving 52 times a year!
Wait, there’s more!
