Wondering what to do for your Virtual Assistant for Christmas? It’s that time of the year again and Christmas is just around the corner. Inevitably, gift giving is such a cheerful tradition that everyone’s been waiting for whenever the holiday season approaches.
Here are some gift ideas that Alvin (one of my personal VA for HireSmartVAs) came up with as his Top 5. If you are looking for some ideas, here is his list & his thoughts about them:
- Starbucks Gift Certificates
But first coffee! We all know how it is important to have a cup of coffee or a tea on your desk while working at night. It is undoubtedly considered as an essential part of our daily productive lifestyle and we can’t agree enough on how caffeine has been the vital component keeping us alive during the night shifts. That’s why we know that giving a Starbucks gift certificate will perk up the quiet Christmas eve into something more awakening, especially with our fellow virtual assistants! But don’t forget to upsize it to Venti!
Maybe someone is tired of hearing the same noise, and so we think it’s the best time of the year to share and plug in some fresh pair of headsets to whom you cared for. We recommend headsets with noise-cancellation feature for ultimate performance so we added 3 of our best picks below to know which unit works best:
- Logitech MX Master (Wireless Computer Mouse)
Although it may not sound a bit surprising to everyone but let me tell you – this is not your ordinary computer mouse. In fact, consider this as a game changer for those who often work with design arrangements, photo or video editing, web designs or even just your normal desk loads will benefit a great leverage in productivity with the use of this equipment.
