This sleek and stylish business tote is perfect for carrying electronics and other essential supplies on a daily commute or business trip.
Essentials Planner Stickers -- Wake Up Kick Ass Repeat

This set of planner stickers add a dose of fun, color, and encouragement to their schedule. This set of stickers is an excellent Christmas stocking stuffer gift for someone that wants the aesthetic of a bullet journal but doesn’t have the time or artistic skills to make those Pinterest-worthy creations.

This set of two cardholders is elegant, sturdy, and available in multiple color combinations.
Lavender Shower Steamers (Pack of 15)
When bath bombs started booming a few years ago, we frequently wondered when self-care products would pop up for people that prefer showers over baths. Sitting in a tub of our own dirty water that quickly goes from hot to freezing and leaves your fingers pruney has never been appealing to some, and we know there are other women with the same opinions. These shower steamers allow non-bath people to still engage in some relaxing self-care, no tub necessary.

You could congratulate your mom, sister, gal pal, or girlfriend on her new job with one of these beautiful floral nameplates.

Choose from 12 gorgeous floral-inspired designs and customize it with the recipient’s name for a wonderful splash of color in their corporate world.

Insulated Cooler Backpack For Women
From their car to the bus, to the train, to their feet, your business lady might have one hefty commute depending on where she works. Cute shoulder bags just won’t cut it when you’re lugging a day’s worth of supplies and snacks. She needs a sturdy backpack to carry all her essentials, just like this awesome insulated cooler backpack. It’s an excellent gift for businesswomen that pack their lunch, gym clothes, and everything else in their work bag.

Plus, the fun pattern will look stylish while she bounces off the walls on a caffeine high!
Plant Watering Stakes 10 Pack
Between her long commute during rush hour traffic, her packed work schedule, and attempts at maintaining any sort of social life, it can be challenging to remember to water your plants. We work from home and constantly forget to water ours (even though they’re literally right next to us as we write this…oops). Anyways, these plant watering stakes make it easy to keep plants alive without spending 20 extra minutes every morning going around to water them all. All they need is some empty wine bottles to attach to the stakes, and their plants will always be perfectly hydrated!

Funny Lavender Scented Candles
When she has to report a male coworker to HR for inappropriate comments, when she has to sit through a three hour meeting and only five minutes of it was pertinent to her job, or any time Bob microwaves fish in the communal kitchen, she’ll light this candle and watch it burn.
8 Pack Glass Meal Prep Containers
Glass containers are significantly more durable and convenient than plastic, and we are willing to die on this soapbox telling people to give up their plastic Tupperware. This set of eight is perfect for meal-prepping ladies that want to organize their meals and snacks for the week instead of buying soggy salads from the corner cafe.
Smart Squeeze Stress Relief Ball
Do you know a successful career woman that could use a bit of stress relief? Not only is this stress ball a great opportunity for her to squeeze out her feelings, it also has smart technology. That means she can use it to track and strengthen her grip and even play games with it.
Ergonomic Active Sitting Stool
Say goodbye to standing desks and bouncy ball chairs, and hello to this cool ergonomic alternative. The accordion-style stool folds slightly when the user sits on it and sets the stage for what they call “active sitting,” which engages the core and supports better posture. If sitting in her wheely office chair is getting her down, this fun chair could help her spring back to life!

It’s available in 14 color combinations to best match her work attire aesthetic.

What do busy business women want? More coffee! How strong do they want it? As caffeinated as legally possible, please! Give the women what they want with this Death Wish Coffee, which claims to be the strongest coffee on the planet. Who knows— it might even be strong enough to get her through her third meeting of the day that could have been an email.
Kindle - Now with a Built-in Front Light
From long commutes to frequent work trips, Kindles are a wonderfully convenient way to take multiple books with you without the bulk. Some of you are probably traditional book purists that are scoffing at the idea of ever buying someone an e-Reader. We understand; we were purists too until traveling forced us to minimize weight, but we couldn’t limit our book collection. Now, we can’t imagine life without being able to fit seven books in our purse!
