Holiday Gift Guide for Wedding Pros & Creative Entrepreneurs
This blog post does contain some affiliate links but mostly it's just stuff I'm obsessed with in my business and it's also on sale this week! Learn more in my Disclosure Here.
I love this time of year. Seriously, it doesn't get any better than family, friends, amazing food and a Curated List Shopping List. If you need a list of ideas for your creative business pals (or let's be real: yourself) keep reading sister.
There's two types of products below. Folks I adore who are having mega sales this week and just products I use every.single.day that make AH-MAZING gifts! Hello Early Black Friday Deals!
Because this list ONLY contains stuff I've actually used (no random recommendations here!) if you have a question about any of these resources email me asap at firstname.lastname@example.org we'll chat about it to make sure it's a good fit for you!
Annette Stepanian is having a HUGE sale on all Contract Templates. And by huge I mean, $100 Dollars Off, making them only $175. As a quick reference, before I found Annette, I paid $1,300 to have my Venue Rental Agreement drawn up. I've purchased contract templates from Annette and hired her to write a custom contract for my book so I can safely say, she is the best of the best. This SALE IS 24 HOURS ONLY STARTING November 21st, 2017 so hop over there and get contracts for 2018! Here's just a little sample of what she has in the shop:
Next up the SC Stock Shop is having their big annual Fall Sale and everything in their shop is 40% OFF. The stock images on the homepage of my website are from the SC Stock Shop and I use some on this site as well. Sale ends Friday! I also use KateMax Stock and TwigyPosts for stock photos. They haven't announced any deal quite yet but if you want to keep an eye on them I'm sure they'll have something!
Do you use Powersheets? Me too! While those may not be on sale The Cultivate What Matters Shop is having a blowout sale on many of their other products. Right now (along with Powersheets) I'm personally using the Fruitful Friendships Workbook and The Sticker Book. I'm going to grab the Goal Guide for Couples and some Write the Word journals for Christmas presents I think! Also, just as a quick heads up, if you do get Powersheets I'm thinking of leading a group in 2018 so we can work on our goals together! Let me know if that sounds interesting at all :)
The Mrs. Box - their sale doesn't actually start until Cyber Monday (Nov. 27th) but I wanted to include it in this list so you can save the date. If you have styled shoots coming up or gift The Mrs. Box as part of your client experience, the Cyber Monday Sale will be a good time to stock up! I recently grabbed The Scarlett Box for a winter shoot we're doing next month and I'm in love! (pro tip: you can actually request to borrow boxes for styled shoots from Mrs. Box! But, I buy mine so I can use them as giveaways later!)
LOVE THIS! I originally bought it to record podcasts at conferences but have been using it at home too because the sound is sooo good! You can hear an example here. I also use it for recording videos on my iPhone and when using the Rev Transcription App.
Every one of my stationery loving friends will be receiving these along with the Write the Word Journals I mentioned above. I use them daily and they don't bleed through paper. #ColorCodingisLife
Spoiler Alert: I have SEVEN (yep) pairs of Blue Light Blocking Glasses....it's a problem. These are just my current favs.
I shared this on my Instagram Stories a few weeks back and my DM BLEW UP so I thought I'd include it here! I've been looking for a bag like this (it has a zipper) for years and am OBSESSED with this one. I use it every day for business and casual.
Books, Books, Books.
If you've been listening to the podcast for any amount of time, you likely know I'm an avid reader and cannot resist a good book list. I like to gift books because they're like the gift that keeps on giving. Heads up, I have an eclectic reading taste (no book is off limits really) so some of these may resonate with you and others won't. YOLO.
Here's some of my current favorites:
