The holidays have snuck upon us once again, and if you’re like the rest of us, you’re still scrambling to find those last-minute gifts.
Well, my gift-giving friends, The 2.0 Collective has put together the most ~effective~ holiday gift guide for your favorite creative, workaholic, or stationary junkie! Trust us, these are gifts they’ll actually use. Whether you’re prepping for the celebrations to come, you’re late for the holiday you missed, or you’re gifting just because these presents are some of The Collective’s favorites.
Note: Some are digital and some can be sent straight to them!
FOR THOSE WHO: NEVER HAVE A MESSY DESK
NOTES: Ambitious professionals with a curated desk, optimized for productivity. Probably has color-coded post-it notes.
MUJI pens, $1.50-6: These are an absolute must-have with The Collective team. 2.0’s Paige & Lynn swear by them. They prefer the gel 0.07mm. In a six pack of the most popular colors, they write beautifully and are eco-friendly. High quality at low prices? Yes, please!
FOR THOSE WHO: ARE VERY TYPE-A!
NOTES: Ambitious professionals who love a good plan. No plan, no gain, right?
Passion Planner, $7-$35: Best. Planner. Ever. This small business lives and breathes planners, and with the customer’s plans in mind, they are constantly adding new features to suit everyone’s organizational needs. *Bonus: You choose the organizations they donate to based on the planner you buy!* I’m sold.
FOR THOSE WHO: YOU FACETIME & THEY’RE ALWAYS ON THE COMPUTER
NOTES: Ambitious professionals who *live* at their desk. Maybe it’s a first-year analyst, a software engineer, a visual designer, or a founder grinding through the night.
Virtual Happy Hour Cocktail Kit, $24: If your Hustle Buddy is someone who never leaves their desk, this is for them. With enough supplies (sans the actual liquor, of course) for 2 drinks, marg my words, their next virtual happy hour can be more lit than the Rockefeller Christmas tree. Includes: Margarita mix, rimming salt, jigger, bar spoon, and coaster.
FOR THOSE WHO: HAVE RIHANNA’S “WORK” ON REPEAT
NOTES: Ambitious professionals who put in the work. Whether you’re interviewing for a job, signing a new client, or making those transitions, your hustle game is strong.
“Paid Invoice” Candle, $24: Manifest the bank account of your dreams! With a candle titled, “Paid Invoice,” just light it, and who knows – your next paycheck could be on the way. Not sure the smell of sea salt and summer vacations is the smell for you? Check out other scents by Lindsey•Created to find your perfect motivational match!
FOR THOSE WHO: MAKE LISTS FOR ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING
NOTES: Ambitious professionals who live for team organization. From CEOs to new project managers, it’s teamwork that makes the dream work.
