We all have a blogger or vlogger in our life and looking for gifts for them, this Christmas can be a tricky task. Whilst this is in no way a definitive list, it is full of items that any blogger would love to see under the tree this year!
Hacking is a big issue online and if you are looking for a way to add extra security to your online accounts, the YubiKey is just what you need. The YubiKey Series 4 security keys bring strong cryptographic protection with seamless touch-to-sign functions to your accounts. They include One-Time-Password, smart card, FIDO U2F, and more. All you have to do is plug in your Yubikiey and it does everything for you.
Deciding on what planner would best suit your needs is a very personal decision but what I like about the filofax is that it is so customisable to your needs. Filofax does a range of inserts but you can also get blogger specific inserts from shops on Etsy. Even better is that once you buy a Filofax you only need to replace the inserts every year, making it very cost effective.
Searching for better lighting is the bane of every bloggers’ life. This handy selfie ring light attaches to your phone to ensure that you always have the best light available. And! It charges by USB meaning that there is no panic if you run out of batteries.
This is such a handy item for bloggers and vloggers alike. It is a tiny mic that attaches to your phone via the charging port. Our phones are becoming our workstation and we need technology to evolve to allow us to do everything from one place, and that is where this little beauty comes in! This microphone allows you to vlog and record videos from your phone without compromising sound quality.
Adding a new theme to your site is a quick and easy way to make your site feel shiny and new. There are so many great pre-made designs now that it doesn’t need to cost a fortune to get something to reflect your personality and blog. Most shops offer a foolproof installation guide or will install the theme for free or for a nominal fee.
The Olympus PEN E-PL8 offers a premium design, enhanced selfie functions and a wide range of creative shooting features that provides complete freedom to those using it. The compact design means it is much easier to carry around compared to a DSLR yet there is no compromise in picture quality.
Bloggers are constantly being told that our followers on social media are not ours. If Twitter or Facebook shut shop tomorrow, everything we had worked for would be gone. It is for that reason that we need to ensure that we build an email list. That list will always be ours, no matter what happens in the rest of the online world. This online course teaches you step by step – in plain English – how to build a welcome email sequence to ensure your subscribers are getting what they need from you. This is a must-have course for all bloggers.
This Joby GorrilaPod tripod has a pan and tilt head and can hold up to 1kg. The mount is designed for any smartphone but you can remove it and attach your camera if you need to. The smooth movement associated with the mount means that you can use it for vlogging, taking pictures or for going live and be confident in the stability of the tripod and the images that it produces.
Not necessarily blogger specific as everyone needs a notebook but the Leuchtturm1917 is a fantastic option for those following the bullet journal system or just those who like keeping notes and ideas in one place. The notebooks come in several different sizes with the pages being ruled, dotted or plain meaning that there is something to suit everyone’s needs.
