If you’ve got an up-and-coming working professional on your gift list this year, know that they’re probably in the office more often than not. Give them something that will elevate their at-work experience so their time spent on the job is time better spent—and that will gain you the status of a gifting boss.
Plane Standing Desk Balance Board
It’s hard to stand still in a cubicle all day long. A standing desk balance board keeps the body as alert as your mind. Having to subtly balance while working can increase energy expenditure and improve posture. More benefits make this a great gift for young professionals.
Undated Goal Planner & Daily Organizer
Organization is key for any professional, but traditional planners often don’t allow for personal reflection and creativity. Passion Planner is set up to capture thoughts, action plans, and to-do lists. There is also room to journal, sketch, and commit to a daily and weekly focus.
Cubii JR Under Desk Elliptical
It’s often hard to work out AND work in one day, but Cubii lets you sneakily do just that. This under-desk workout machine lets you pedal away while seated and on the job.
iPhone & Apple Watch Battery Bank
Road warriors know that keeping devices charged up when on the go is key. Time Traveler can charge a smartphone and smartwatch at the same time, making it doubly useful.
All-Natural Soy Wax Candle
A pure soy wax candle from the Feya Candle Co can help an office space smell lovely and it gives back, too. Each candle means a meal given to someone in need around the world.
Window-Mounted Standing Desk
It’s not easy sitting down all day, which is why many offices are converting to standing desks. Turn a window into a standing work station with DeskView. It’s an adjustable and portable solution that mounts securely to glass with industrial-grade suction cups.
Temperature-Controlled Travel Mug
Any professional, particularly young ones, love coffee. The Thero travel mug cools piping-hot coffee down to an ideal 140 degrees in minutes and then keeps it there for up to five hours.
Universal Cold Brew Coffee Filter
Not all young professionals can afford a daily coffee shop habit. Rumble Go is a cold brew coffee filter that fits in an existing water bottle so you can brew and take it to go, all in one. It takes less than a minute to set up and then steeps while you sleep.
Magnetic Invisible Tie Stay
When work calls for a suit and tie, CLIP OFF is a perfect fit. The tie magnet is a modern approach to the tie stay, the ultimate practical gift for necktie wearers. It clips on and keeps a tie in check in a stealthy way.
Reusable Silicone Straws
A sustainable straw that also helps keep teeth free from stains is a win-win. KoffieStraws have an oval shape that fits into to-go cups and travel mugs and keeps the flow of hot or cold drinks to the just-right amount—and away from teeth.
Personal Ceramic Heater
Offices tend to be chilly, but with GeekHeat folks can keep their immediate space toasty. Things feeling a little too warm? Switch to the built-in fan for on-the-spot personal cooling.
Car Vent Phone Mount
Save an always-on-the-phone young professional from themselves with a smartphone holder that frees up hands in the car. A spring-loaded grip securely holds a phone and a pivot ball tilts and rotates to get the just-right position.
Headphones are a must-have in a busy, noisy office space. AfterShokz use bone conduction technology that sends audio signals through cheekbones, bypassing ears completely. That means you can still hear the world around you while listening to music or taking a call.
Starting a career can be an exciting but challenging time. With one of these clever gifts for young professionals, you’ll make their work-life a little bit better so they can focus on conquering that daily grind.
