Instance a high, quality item, that I can use for a decade, on a daily, or weekly basis, and can, extract some productivity. Out of is, immensely. More. Valuable, to me than an alternative.

Number. Nine Allen, Edmonds cordovan, shoes. Now. Shoes are not something that you would gift in a business setting. Traditionally. Speaking of course but. Since you are watching probably, this, video for a friend or a family, member or a relative. Who also, happened. To be a small business owner the. Allen, Edmonds, cordovan. Shoes can, be a great, choice, we. Came to understand. The sheer value proposition. Of a pair of these when. A client of ours told, us how he's owned a pair now for, almost 18. Years and. With. A little bit of tender. Loving care mending, and tending from time to time his, pair of shoes still. Look, like they're absolutely. New. Extremely. Comfortable. Shoes were also, mean greater. Productivity. When. It comes to productivity. Comfort. Is of utmost importance. If. You're uncomfortable with, your apparel, or your, shoes you're. Just, not going to be as productive the. Allen Edmonds, are both extremely, comfortable, and extremely. Long-lasting. Making. Them an exceptional. Unbelievable. Value. Proposition, at even. The roughly $600. Price point of. All. The things on this list these. Shoes are the only ones that you, don't, have to worry about redundancy. On either since. Everybody. Can, own several, pairs of shoes at once. Number. 8, caster, sleep mattress, with, memory foam. Speaking. Of comfort nothing's. More important. Than, a good night's. Sleep. Not. Only does your general, comfort in life, depend. Upon how well you sleep but also, your. Willpower. Is directly, dependent upon your sleep quality. Given. That we spend almost a third of our life entire. Life on a bed, will. It stand to reason that, you, should invest in a high quality mattress. For yourself, or the people you care about the. Castor sleep mattress, is made out of memory, foam and with, its 10 year. Manufacturer's. Warranty it's. An extremely high value proposition, even. At the roughly. $900. That it costs, in. Fact. It's. Such a high value equipment. For, your entrepreneurial. Friend, that. The. Only reason why it's not ranked, in the top three gift ideas of this list is because. It's. Very highly, likely that they. Already have a high quality mattress, and yes. I did refer to a mattress, as equipment. That. Was, deliberate, and entrepreneurs. Ability, to succeed depends, largely upon, his, willpower and his ability, to, keep a straight head when. Things seem to be going belly, up a. Mattress. Is a tool that recharges your entrepreneurial. Friends, willpower, and as. Such should. Be treated as no less than, an equipment. By. The way if you'd like to go for an even, better mattress, check. Out some latex, foam mattresses, on Amazon well, those are likely to be even more expensive. Latex. Often, outlasts. Memory foam by, 250%. And is, 100 wasn't natural. Links. Can be found in the description, below number. Seven. Herman, Miller Aeron. Chair. Now. In the same vein as the mattress, we have this bath chair by. Herman, Miller called. Aaron, is. It expensive sure. At roughly, a thousand, dollars it is expensive, but. Is it valuable sure, because. It does come with a 12 year warranty from. Herman Miller themselves. There. Is an infinite, number of videos out there on how Herman Miller's chairs. Especially, this Aeron, chair or, Aeron chair have, helped entrepreneurs. Worldwide gain, better performance, and also achieve. Better health we. Spend at least a third of our, day one-third, of our day sitting in a chair and if the chair is just not good enough well then you, gotta get a good one right. There. Spine. Will. Thank you for the next decade, every. Single, day, the. Earl Miller is available. On Amazon, and you can order one right now for your, entrepreneur, or businessman. Friends or businesswomen. Friends. If, you have the budget and if they don't already have a professional-grade. Organ, Amma casks, chair you. Can really, never. Go wrong with, a Herman Miller. Number. 6 DSLR. Setup or, accessories. One. Of the things that has worked exceptionally, well, for our clients, in 2017, and will continue to get even, better in the next two to five years is, video. Based marketing. Every. Small business needs. A YouTube channel or, Ave, of showcasing. What it is that they do to, the world. Every. Small business today, needs. A way to quickly and efficiently talk, about the. Problems, that their customers, or their audience might be facing about. Tips and tricks that their customers, or prospective audience, can use and so on. Video. Marketing is the next big wave now. Of course video has been around forever right, but. With. The high quality, low price gear that's available now today. There. Really is no reason by every business nor.
Shouldn't. At least dabble. Into it and spend, some time creating, video content. Your. Entrepreneurial. Friend, already. Probably, realizes. This most. Likely, they. Either already have a video capturing, rid the rig setup or they, don't our. Rig is basically a camera lens, like, a lot lights a, decent location, to film at and a, tripod stand to mount the camera now if they don't already have, such a setup going on you, can help them along in the right direction by, giving them or gifting. Them an inexpensive. But, high-quality DSLR, camera, like. The t6i which is what we are using right now comes. With basically, everything, right, out of the box that they could need to. Get started, now. If they already have a camera and the basic accessories, the next best item to give to them is a very handy. Very compact, little and very, inexpensive, little HDMI. Capture card, from. A company called alghero. This. Basically. Enables. An entrepreneur, to run live shows live, webinars, and online seminars. While. Using. The high quality DSLR, footage that. They could never achieve with. A basic, webcam no matter which, one they, use. Another. Gift idea, related, to this as a lens or to a high, quality prime lens can produce a far better and far sharper image quality then, the kit included. Lens the. One that is included for free because fine lenses, especially the Canon 50mm and 24mm. Lenses, links below can. Let in a whole, lot of light which, means sharper, focus and, that, cool background. Blur which, even gives you, know your home or office footage, a cinematic. Tanner look. The. 50mm, comes in two variants, we, have 1.8, lens which costs around 125, dollars, and the, F 1.4, which costs about 350, dollars the only difference, between these two real, difference is that the three. Hundred and fifty dollar lens less than about 70 percent more light which, means even, better low-light. Or indoor, performance, the. 24mm, on the other and costs, only, around 130, dollars which is extremely. Cheap for what it is capable of doing it and lastly, for someone very into, video. Marketing a very inexpensive but high utility gift, idea is a continuous, battery, pack for their lens now. This little gadget allows them to plug the camera into power outlet, directly, so, they never have to worry about the battery is getting discharged. Or power running out you can, find these continuous. Power packs power. Supply, packs for almost. Any camera but since we mentioned the t6i, from canon has a camera, of choice for, small business, owners we. Have included. A link to a, continuous. Power supply packed compatible. With, the t6i, in the description below number. Five that's. Sumo gift card. Some. Kind of SaaS, or software as a service, is something that every, business owner needs from time to time, apps. To Moe is a deal aggregator, kind. Of like Groupon, for business, software, except. With extremely, large, discounts. Compared to Groupon they, basically let entrepreneurs, purchase lifetime, subscriptions, to any of the dozens of SaaS, deals that they bring to the table every year, these. Deals can, range from. Accounting. Software to. Social. Media automation, software to. Content. Promotion, deals to. Web. Design software maybe, even customer. Relationship, management or CRM software, and, even, platforms, that allow you or, the entrepreneur to connect with other influencers. Or entrepreneurs. In their field, now. Normally, these software, as-a-service. Subscriptions. Can cost anywhere between $10, a month two hundred and fifty dollars a month but on absolument, you can subscribe, to these for. A lifetime, for, as little as $49. So an, app stream of gift card is a great option for anyone who's already familiar, with absolument. If, you didn't know anything about someone let's, say about me about. What I do about, what I have what I don't have what I need as an, entrepreneur you could give me an optimal gift card and that, would always be, a welcome.
And Very valuable gift to me. AppSumo. Gift cards start, from as little as $300. And go all the way up to $1,000. Links. Can be found in the description below number. Four sterling. Silver 0.92, five square cufflinks yes. Cufflinks. Are cliche but. The ones listed here are sterling silver and at. $65. These aren't. Exactly, cheap cufflinks. Are cliché for a reason these, cufflinks, look great. And they, work with suits of all colors, these. Are professional. Looking and high-quality these. Will likely last them a long long time and every, time they get these out and put these cufflinks on they'll, be thinking of you and just, like the shoes it's, okay to be redundant, here as well one. Can and often does own several, pairs of cufflinks and they. Can still own another right the only difference, between shoes and this is that you. Cannot formally, gift a pair of shoes to, someone, but you can always give it a pair of cufflinks while, still maintaining a, formal, kind of decorum, to anyone, this. Is the reason why we've listed these. Cufflinks, on number 4 of this, list that's very high up you can give them to basically anyone, and so it's a very versatile, gift at. $65, they're high quality and, durable without breaking the bank and, since. They will be used several times over the next few. Years the, recipient, will be thinking of you every time. They wear these. Number. Three, Mont. Blanc John. F Kennedy special. Edition ballpoint. Pen. Now. Does a humbles, a pen sound cliche. Well. This pen is definitely, not here's. How that is a business. Owner signs big deals throughout, the week, they've. About their pen in front of clients. Prospective. Clients, suppliers. Manufacturers. Vendors. And so on they. Use their pen to sign deals, contracts. Agreements memoranda. And other documents, that make. Or, break their business. And, most. Business owners still. Kind. Of don't have a dedicated tool for, all those activities. So. Think of the Mont Blanc JFK, special edition ballpoint. Pen as the. Very last pen, they'll ever need to buy this. Pen will last them decades, and they'll, use it on a daily basis, now, the refills are readily available and, are extremely cheap. You. Don't know the. Power of a high-quality pen. Unless. You hold one in your hand and use, it yourself on a day-to-day basis, sure. Nobody's, going to compliment, you on a pen like they would probably do on a well tailored suit, but. The. People who do know this are. The, people who do notice quality, in everything now, my own waterman, 10 has got any several, impressed. But very subtle. Compliments. From clients, and other people, over the years I, do. Important. Work with. My pen and the. Pen is the tool I use, the most for the. Most important part of building my business like, signing, contracts, and, accepting. New clients and. Even, signing cheques for. Vendors, and other highly skilled people right. With. Our recommended, Mont black being a, ballpoint. Pen instead, of a fountain pen the. Risk of your entrepreneurial, friend. Smearing. Their, high-quality, bespoke. Suit to do leaked ink is infinitely, smaller and. Once. Again they'll. Be using, it every. Single day so they'll be thinking about you. Every. Time they do something anything, important. In their, business. Depending. Upon who, you're buying it for at. $700. It might, just even, be a bargain, I bought. One for myself at a similar amount of money and it. Has been worth it to me every. Penny of it. Number. Two. Yamaha. Ydp, 143. Our areas, console, digital piano, rosewood. Bundle with furniture bench and accessories. Whoa, that's an out for. Entrepreneurs. Are busy people very busy our work, takes up most of our time and very often it becomes very, very hard to, have any sort of heavy at all, whatsoever.
This. Yamaha, ydp 143, R is a small and compact size piano, with a big impact. First. It is so small that it sets nicely in the corner of their office or their home office or their living room it. Has a beautiful, wooden exterior and. Finish to it and looks extremely, high-quality because. In almost every, way it is, high quality, it. Comes with a matching wooden, and leather I'd bench that, looks equally. Amazing and is, equally, functional. Second. It is a hobby that a businessman, can pursue, even. If all they have got is 10 to 15 minutes a day. Even. 15 minutes a day of daily, practice, can. Work wonders, when. Those 15 minutes a day are compounded. Over a few years. Which. Is a good, thing because the third, big reason, or advantage, of buying, this is durability. These. Yamaha digital pianos, can last literally, a decade, or longer if, properly, cared, for. Fourth. This, is one gift that's quite visible, no matter where, they put it and, the. Impressiveness. Is, unparalleled. And, finally. It is actually a very good instrument in terms of its performance, and, build quality alone, it. Sounds, almost exactly. Like a real concert, grant to the beginners, years and has. Weighted. Down keys so. It does simulate, the experience of playing a real concert. Brand very closely, not. To mention the sound which it also replicates, really well unless. There are thousand, dollars it's, an amazing, bang, for, your buck not. Only, will the recipient, really enjoy and appreciate it, it will also blow the mine's of just about anybody. Who finds out how. The guarded in the first place which experience, tells me can be quite a lot of people. Number. One view. Reigned at. The top of our list is an, unchallenged, winner, in this category whether. It's. $299. Entry level price point and it's, 100% utility, rate the o-ring is one of the greatest gifts we, can buy for any adult. Not. Just entrepreneurs. If they, don't already have one. Think, about Fitbit and its, popularity right, now it's. A great way to track your activity, and your motion, and your resting time I have, won and I've been rather satisfied, with it at least for, a long time, but, it does come with a great number, of problems, two of which we're going to talk about first I can't, work out with that on I lift, very heavy weights, and it's just not comfortable to, have Fitbit on and I, have broken one in the past while working out so there's that and secondly. The. Even, bigger, challenge. Is, that I really, hate, sleeping. With the Fitbit on it's. Just flat-out uncomfortable. At nights the. Orang takes. Care of both of those problems for you. With. Its solid, titanium, construction. And it's waterproof design, you'll. Never, need, to take it off. Whether. You're working out or showering. Or swimming, and. With. It's totally, unobtrusive. Design you, can sleep with the ring on every, single night of the year and not. Really feel any problems, whatsoever, so. Why is that important, because your. Ring intelligently, assigns scores, to, three things, sleep. Readiness. And, activity. Luring. Is not just about calculating. Steps, or miles or calories. Like every other fitness, tracker in the world out there but. It's also about guiding, you towards, your own you. Need, activity. And rest balance in, fact it's.

Case you haven't noticed yet, we. Have placed a great deal of emphasis and importance, over the quality of sleep that. You get as an entrepreneur. For. An entrepreneur success, is largely a, function, of how productive. They. Are and how. Well, balanced, or well, rested. Or calm. The. State of mind is when they're making important. Business decisions. Which. Is something that they do throughout the day now. A tired entrepreneur, is kind of grumpy, or maybe, even passive-aggressive. And that. Makes for a rather, unsuccessful. Entrepreneur, with. Its state of the art technology, the new oaring tracks so, many things about being well-rested and being ready for action, or decision making, that, it's one, thing that every entrepreneur should have on their finger. At all, times and the. New version is more, compact, and requires, only once a week charging, so, it's the easiest upgrade. You can make for, any entrepreneur, out there and at. $299. Without breaking a bank whatsoever, if, your business owner friend doesn't, already have an o-ring, you. Can basically forget about almost, every, other idea even, on this list and buy, one for them right, now it's. Built out of solid.
