‘Tis the season for gifting, sales, and getting ready for a new year. We’ve rounded up some of our go-to gift guides for the entrepreneur — whether you’re making a few final business investments for yourself, gifting a business bestie, or supporting a loved one in their entrepreneurial pursuits.
You’ve likely seen/heard us mention these before because when you find something you love, you keep it in rotation!
Let’s shop …
Ember Mug – This has been in hand just about every single day since receiving it last Christmas. If lukewarm coffee that needs to be reheated in the microwave every 5 seconds just doesn’t do it for you (does it for anyone?) then this is well worth the splurge. Download the app and set the temp to whatever your palette desires. Pro Tip: Maybe don’t get the white color. Unless you’re really virtuous at washing it out right away, it will start to discolor and stain over time.
Belle Glos Pinot Noir – Drinks like a Cab but with all the subtle fruit-forward notes you love in a Pinot. With its beautiful wax seal and storied history, it’s a festive, holiday-worthy bottle to bring to your next gathering and unwind from all that 2024 planning.
The Essential Copy Course™ – Of course, we had to include ourselves in this list and this program is a great reason to do so. Every entrepreneur needs a solid foundation of messaging and copywriting, and this robust, self-paced, step-by-step course will provide you with just that. Complete with a 220+ digitally fillable or printable Coursebook, supporting resources and videos, and a clean, intuitive platform to house it all in, you’ll love the experience and the end result of copy being one of the things about your business you’re most proud of.

Design Templates by Saffron Avenue – Everything Angela creates is next-level beautiful, and with her extensive industry experience, it leads the pack in smart, sustainable strategies, too. We love her social media & launch templates, pre-made brands, website templates, and more. To save 10% use code: LOVECOPYUNCORKED
Contracts by The Creative Law Shop – You never know what’s going to happen, but with lawyer-drafted contracts by The Creative Law Shop, the worries of what could go wrong don’t have to keep you up at night. Stay protected and ahead of any mishaps or miscommunications with sound templates, without the hourly rate. We’ve used these for years and can’t imagine starting a project without them. To save an additional 10%, use code: COPYUNCORKED10.
Salt & Stone Candle – Definitely on the bougie candle scale, but the Saffron & Cedar scent is truly like nothing else and fills the room with the warmest, woody, spicy scent that everyone loves. They also finally just made a candle in their popular Santal & Vetiver scent, so we’re eyeing that one next. It’s the perfect way to elevate the every work day. Catch their one sale of the year & save 20% off!
Puffy Laptop Sleeve – Cute, functional, what more do you need? Hope you have a big work bag to tote it in, otherwise, it’s roomy enough to stash a few accessories and carry it under your arm & on the go with you.
Wireless Charging Station & Bluetooth Speaker – A newer office addition with multi-functional use that has it earning its keep. The magnetic stand easily holds your phone, charges it, offers a nightlight, and connects to Bluetooth to stream whatever tunes you want to jam out to from its chic, neutral speaker base. Very happy with this one! Pro Tip: Make sure you have a mag-safe case if you’re keeping the case on!
Mesh Ergonomic Office Chair – Also a newer office addition, but after sharing it to the CU IG Story, seems like a lot of us are back on the ergonomic train lately. Admittedly, we spend way too much time at a desk to be messing around with anything that’s going to mess with our backs. Affordable enough and nothing overtly fancy, this one does offer a removable headrest, adjustable seat height, optional recline, and an extended footrest. All the bells & whistles you need for better posture and more pain-free work days.
Élevae Visuals Membership – We love a good brand photoshoot – but stock photos & videos are an ideal way to help you fill in the gaps, round out your visual presence, and make your pricier brand shoot last longer. We intermix them with our CU photos often and love the incredibly wide-ranging and always high-quality assets Élevae offers, including aesthetic video clips that are ready for making the Reels of your dreams. Choose between a monthly, quarterly, or annual membership.
Website Templates by TONIC – The industry-leading website templates made exclusively for the Showit platform. We’re TONIC regulars ourselves, from the CU website to our email templates, social media graphics, and more. It’s impossible to go wrong. Save 15-20% off with code: COPYUNCORKED
PILOT Erasable Pens – After using MUJI pens for years, these are a nice change of pace. The erasable feature is particularly nice for when dates change and calls get rescheduled so you don’t have to fill your planner with white-out or strikethroughs. 🙂
The Flight Planner – This planner isn’t the most portable (it’s thick) but it will last you the whole year and has the right combo of minimalist and detailed. The weekly spreads are a great way to see everything at a glance and not have to move your tasks over between days when things don’t get done. The weekly reflection section (dubbed “Hindsight”) is thought-provoking and therefore, makes you more likely to fill them in and benefit from doing so.
If you give any of these a go – let us know! We’d love to hear what you think &/or share some of your faves with us, too. Happy holidays!
