I need to buy a birthday gift for my boss; however, what do you buy for someone who has almost no social life because he or she works all the time? He never slows down to enjoy a hobby, relax or even take in a movie. I do not want to buy him something he will never use or a useless knick-knack so I began to hunt for the perfect gift for a busy person. I found several gifts that are great for busy people to choose from for my boss.
Gifs for busy people
Fast Food – No not gift cards to a fast food restaurant but a cookbook that offers quick, easy recipes that a busy person can whip up at home without barely slowing down. Rachel Ray’s 30-Minute Meals or Quick Chef for Dummies are great choices for the busy person.
Fail-safe alarm clock – Even the busiest person must sleep sometime and the busier the person the harder they probably sleep. Sometimes it may be hard to wake up and face another busy day so having an alarm clock that makes sure you get out of bed is perfect for the busiest person in your life. Clocky Alarm Clock will make you get out bed because it will literally “jump” off your night stand and run around blaring a loud alarm if you snooze more than nine minutes. This is also great for the lazy person in your life!
Garment steamer – Who has time to iron clothes each morning and no matter how carefully packed, clothes will be wrinkled when you unpack. Instead of being late for a meeting because of wrestling with an ironing board and iron, the busy person knows a clothes steamer is the best option. The busy person you know will love the Shark Garment Care Steamer because it removes wrinkles and cleans at the same time.
Instant beverage maker – Save time in the morning by cutting out the lines at the coffee shop by making coffee at home. However, a busy person does not have time to measure coffee and water nor wait for a pot of coffee to brew. Therefore, buy them a single serving beverage maker like the Keurig or a Senseo coffee maker. Busy people will love the wide variety of beverages (coffees, teas, hot chocolates, etc.) they can make in less than a minute with a premeasured pod or cup.
Maid service – Cleaning house takes time and time is something that a busy person never seems to have enough of in their schedule. A gift certificate for a maid service to come in and do a thorough house cleaning will certainly be appreciated – – especially by me if my friends are reading this.
Help with tasks or staying organized – Even the most organized person needs help sometimes to get tasks done. This is when having someone to call for help saves the day. Having a personal secretary would be fantastic but if that is not an option, give the gift of a virtual secretary. AskSunday is an online service that provides busy people with a virtual assistant who can do research, enter data, schedule appointments or make phone calls.
Everyone gets busy at times but for those in your life that cannot even take time to blow out the candles on their own birthday cake, at least these gifts can help them with their busy life.
