Anyone who starts up and runs a small business or buys one is going to be working extremely hard to make his or her business a success. It involves long hours, lots of brainstorming, fulfilling contracts and much of the time very exhausting.


However, they wouldn’t do it if they weren’t committed to making the business a success, so are there ways you could help to lighten the burden with a carefully chosen gift? Many start-ups, in particular, can find it difficult to get everything they want at the beginning because finances are tight, but they are also tight even when they are making a success of what they are doing.

So here are a few ideas that you could consider.


Most businesses today are tech savvy, but equipment is expensive. If your business owner appears chained to a desktop computer and doesn’t have a laptop or tablet because at this stage they can’t afford it, they would make a great gift. Your entrepreneur can become much more flexible by allowing him or her to be more mobile. It’s also worth asking what other office equipment they may be lacking. A cheap printer will work but why not think about a good laser printer to help speed things up when needed? There are some great electronics reviews at if you’re stuck for ideas.


“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” as the saying goes. An attractive addition to any business is something that, after a hard day’s work, offers the opportunity to relax for a while in style. This is where crystal glassware is the perfect gift. It looks good, it looks classy, and when you’re entertaining sends out a message to clients that quality is important. You could choose whisky glasses, wine glasses or champagne flutes as options and they last forever (unless you drop them!).


This is always a good option because there is so much choice. Many internet companies do gift baskets so you can choose from a wide range and provide some delicious food that can be shared with other workers. If you’re looking for a more personal touch, you could get in contact with a local store – perhaps a delicatessen or a cheese and wine shop – and ask them to put together something special.


Businesses run on coffee and often it can be very unpleasant instant coffee (that’s not to say there aren’t some perfectly good instant coffees out there). Late nights and early mornings demand something of higher quality, so you could consider gifting a coffee machine. They are not that expensive. They can make all sorts of drinks such as cappuccinos, espressos, hot chocolate and tea. They save time because no one has to boil the kettle and then make the drinks. If you supply a good number of the pods for the machine too, then you’ve given a great and welcome gift.

Business owners will always appreciate the thought that goes into gifts they receive. You can ask what they need, but you can also surprise them with something that is going to provide a useful addition to their day-to-day work.
