03 Dec HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS FOR THE EXECUTIVE WHO HAS EVERYTHING
EXECUTIVE TRAVEL GIFTS
Buying gifts for executive travelers is difficult, because they already have so many useful and efficiency-boosting gadgets. If you’re at your wit’s end trying to think of a gift for your favorite road warrior, here are some gift ideas to help you out.
1.) SPA GIFT CERTIFICATE
Executives lead stressful lives. All the hours spent working on the computer, traveling and sitting in on negotiations takes a toll on their well-being. Why not give them the gifts of relaxation by purchasing them a gift certificate for a local spa? They can get a massage or even arrange for a facial or a mani-pedi.
2.) LAPTOP STAND + KEYBOARD
All the hours spent looking at their laptop is bound to lead to sore neck and shoulder muscles. A laptop stand will prop their computer up so that they’re not forced to work hunched over, while the keyboard attachment will allow them to keep their arms flat on the table while typing, instead of reaching upward to type on their elevated laptop.
3.) GIFT CARD TO THEIR FAVORITE RESTAURANT
Does your significant other have a restaurant they loves so much that they eat there at least once a month? Buying them a gift card will allow them to partake in some of their favorite fare, all the while showing how much you care.
4.) FAMILY VIDEO BLOG
Traveling requires that the executive in your family is away a lot, meaning they most likely miss out on some big moments like home runs and perfect spelling tests and the immediacy of a funny story that happened just that day. Hearing about them via telephone just isn’t the same, so why not set up a video weblog where you and your children can post special video messages to cheer up the weary traveler?
5.) AN ADVENTURE EXPERIENCE
You can give the gift of a special adventure—like hang gliding, skydiving, or race car driving—through companies like Cloud 9 Living, which allow gift-givers to purchase special adventures for their loved ones. The experiences they offer are ones that you don’t come across in your everyday life, so if your loved one is difficult to buy for, there’s bound to be something unique awaiting them through Cloud 9 Living.
6.) NECK PILLOW
A neck pillow will come in handy for those moments when your executive is on the plane and in desperate need of shut-eye. With their own pillow, they’ll prevent the possibility of getting a sore neck form letting their head loll at a strange angle and they’ll also avoid the germs that can infest the airline’s pillows.
7.) LIMO SERVICE FOR A NIGHT OUT
The executive in your family is probably no stranger to limos. A luxury vehicle might await them every time they arrive at or travel to the airport. Why not hire a limo to take your executive and the family to a special dinner, or plan a post-Christmas date night so the two of you can spend some time alone together? That way they’ll get to experience something besides the business side of a limousine ride (that’s the last rhyme—we promise).
When considering gift options for that special business executive in your life, think of ways their work requires them to spend less time on other aspects of their lives, and see if you can choose gifts that will make up for that deficiency. Could they use more quality time with the family? Are they often stressed-out or tired as a result of their work? Whatever the case may be, there are plenty of options for giving them gifts that they’ll love. You just need a little creativity. Good luck!
