25 of the Best Productivity Gifts This Season

Undies that make pads and tampons obsolete

We’ve all got places to go and sometimes—let’s face it, we forget to bring along our tampons. This pair of period underwear from Sustain Natural can replace up to one tampon during use or be used as a backup. Perfect for your mega multi-tasking pal.

A kit for beautiful skin, anywhere

When it comes to skincare, we’re always looking for products that do double-duty. This mix-and-match set from Omorovicza allows you to take your favorite skincare essentials with you on your holiday travels. Nab it for your jet-setting bestie.

Single-serving collagen for on-the-go smoothies

You’ve probably heard about the benefits of drinking collagen (especially since we start producing less of it as we age!). These single-serve packets from Primal Kitchen allow you to sprinkle some while you’re on-the-go. A great gift for your cousin or friend who has the *perfect* Instagram.

A tiny vacuum to keep their desk clean

Keeping your desk and workspace clean is a cinch when you have this cute, tiny vacuum at your disposal. And with one less thing to worry about when you’re at work, you’ll get that much more done. It’s a fab present for your clean freak co-worker.

The ultimate canvas tote

Running to and fro is all the easier when you have the perfect canvas tote bag. This one from Madewell is large enough to hold all your essentials without any of the bulk. Get one for your book-toting aunt.

A stylish + sturdy laptop case

Aside from our cell phones, our laptops are perhaps the piece of technology we use the most. Why not gift a stylish but functional laptop case like this one from Herschel?

A gadget that finds lost keys

Do you know someone who, no matter how much they try, always manages to lose their keys? If so, then consider Tile Mate, an accessory you can attach to a keychain. The software inside allows you to track the keys and avoid having to frantically search your apartment for them.

A one-stop charging station

Ensuring your gadgets are always fully charged is all the easier when you have a cute dock to make it happen. This one-stop charging station from Kikkerland doubles as a phone-charging station and pencil/pen holder.

A place to write their 2019 goals

The holidays are also a time when everyone is reflecting on the previous year and what’s to come. The Happiness Planner can help jump-start those reflections and goals. Consider it the perfect item for your Oprah-loving pal.

A set that makes packing a breeze

Know someone who travels a lot? This metallic packing set in rose gold from CALPAK will simplify the pre and post-travel process for them.

A scanner to digitize receipts and documents

Owning a scanner is one of those things you never think to own until you realize how beneficial they are. Help someone organize and digitize their receipts, old photos and important documents with this wireless scanner from Doxie Q.

A home speaker with Alexa

While you might not be able to gift a personal assistant this holiday season, you can do the next best thing. Gift the Echo Smart Speaker to create a home command center.

A wall calendar to stay productive all year

Some things never got out of style—like this adorable wall calendar that will keep your pal up-to-date.

A makeup case with plenty of space

Figuring out what makeup will please the beauty enthusiast in your life might be a challenge. In lieu of more products, consider a compact makeup travel case like this one by Sonia Kashuk.

Sneakers for that go from running errands to an actual run

What’s better than a pair of comfortable sneakers? Ones that you can easily wear while running your day errands or, you know, on an actual run. This pair of Nike sneakers allows you to do just that.

A cute way to display photos and notes

Clutter? At home? On your workspace? Gifting this wall display will help banish any desk clutter and help your giftee focus on their work.

Chic cups for pencils and pens (or plants)

While we’re on the subject of desk accessories, consider this Umbra Tabletop Vessel Desk set. A few accent plants (or maybe some pens) will spruce up any workspace.

A simple but gourmet coffee maker

Know someone who loves coffee, but never has enough time to brew a cup at home? This AeroPress Coffee and Espresso machine brews in just one minute. Problem solved.

A gentle alarm clock for early mornings

Those noisy alarm clocks you grew up seeing on Saturday morning cartoons are easy to ignore when you hit the snooze button. A gentle alarm like this Wake-up Light avoids all that by allowing you to wake up slowly—without the blaring sound of a horn.

A place to stash rings, keys, or change

You know how easy it is to lose track of the small—but precious—items in your home? A lovely trinket tray like this one from Anthropologie means no more lost change, rings or keys.

A battery pack for an always charged phone

We’ve already covered how to keep your phone charged while you’re at your desk. This external battery pack from Mophie is pocket-sized while providing 720 minutes of run time.

A pouch that keeps it simple

Sometimes you need something between a pencil case and a makeup pouch to store your loose items. This simple, zipped canvas pouch will make it easier to transfer items from your work tote to your evening bag.

Tech support in their pocket

Know someone whose home office is…the local coffee shop? Are they always on the go? Help them avoid any technical mishaps with this compact assortment of essential gadgets like a charger and pair of earbuds.

Sporty and comfy wireless headphones

No one ever likes arriving at a gym only to realize they left their headphones at home. Gift this Bose wireless earbud set for the gym enthusiast in your circle and they’ll thank you for the extra pair and great sound system.

A high-tech mug that keeps coffee warm

Sure, you could gift your coffee-loving friend a gift card to their favorite cafe. But this Ember Temperature Control Mug helps them enjoy their home-brewed cup of joe at just the right temperature, in the comfort of home.
