There's truly something for anyone, click any of the product images or links to shop through Think Entrepreneurship's affiliate links and help support us/our content.

Amazon Prime is truly amazing. You can conveniently receive your orders in two days with their free two-day shipping (and even one day for an extra cost). Use this link to receive a free 30 day trial of Prime.
With too many features to mention, a few more are: access to Amazon cloud storage, access to a huge library of free ebooks, access to Prime free television and movies, and much more. This is a great gift for any entrepreneur!
I invite you to use my link to receive a FREE book when you sign up for an Audible account. Audible is truly an amazing service that has a vast library of audio books. It's only $14.95 a month after your free trial period and I view this as an investment in continuing education.
Not only are there a huge library of audio books to choose from, the conveniency factor of the service is fantastic. You can listen to audio books while doing tasks that do not require much brain bandwidth, you'll be through books in no time!
Keurig K45 Elite
Entrepreneurs often work long hours, long days, long nights, and are fueled by coffee. A Keurig makes an excellent gift for entrepreneurs! I love how quickly and conveniently a cup can be brewed.
Amazon also offers some great deals of K-Cup packs, much cheaper than even Costco wholesale prices. Click here for an assortment of 40 K-Cups.
For those entrepreneurs that like a little more zing in their coffee, I'd recommend this awesome espresso machine. You save quite a bit of money making these at home or in the office, rather than buying from Starbucks, etc.
This machine has a milk steamer for making lattes and mochas just like you'd get anywhere else. Highly recommended!
Bose SoundTrue Headphones
I absolutely love my Bose headphones. I wear them in the office, on planes while traveling, and more. The quality of Bose SoundTrue technology is truly unmatched, its crazy how great these sound!
Entrepreneurs tune into webinars, listen to audio books and podcasts, and more. Treat them to this nice pair of high quality headphones.
Plantronics Bluetooth Earbuds
For more compact, on-the-go headphones, check out these bluetooth earbuds made by Plantronics. They are perfect while I'm out running or at the gym.
They'll sync via bluetooth to your phone or other device and you can listen to music and take calls on-the-go.
This is the microphone that I use for all of my podcasting, video voiceovers, and more. I will honestly stand behind the quality and affordability of this USB microphone. It's a great mic that you can travel with and is very easy to get setup.
Canon 70D DSLR Camera
This camera is amazing! I recently purchased this for my business DIY Projects with Pete and it has been a complete game changer. If you're looking to upgrade your camera equipment, this is what you need.
Not only is the photo quality excellent, the video it shoots is also superb. This bundle package that I'm linking to is truly a good deal, you'll get nearly two of everything: two lenses, two carrying cases, two memory cards, two UV filters, and more.
Ravelli 67″ Tripod
For a super durable, high quality tripod – Ravelli is the way to go. I use this as my main tripod for filming and shooting photos for my businesses. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to upgrade their tripod.
Professional Soft box Lighting
The last camera accessory I'll mention are these lights. They come with very durable stands, that fold down for a very compact and moveable setup.
These can come in handy in the office, studio, warehouse, and much more. Highly recommended!
Standing Desk from Stand Modern
I recently collaborated on a project with Stand Modern, a standing desk company based in Bozeman, MT. I've switched myself and my employee over to standing desk setups and its great! You can shop through this link to receive a discounted rate at Stand Modern.
Not only are these very clean and modern looking, standing is excellent for your health and the benefits are tremendous. My husband is a teacher and he uses this he also uses Gradecam formative assesment tools to do his grading for students tests. If you know someone who is a teacher, you could buy them an upgraded package on GradeCam, I'm sure they'd really appreciate it!
Ergonomic Office Chair
Even if you do own a standing desk, you'll likely find yourself needing a bit of a break and sitting comfortably is important too. This mesh office chair is very comfortable, sleek, and functional. Have a look at Executive Office Chairs to find one that you think would support your back best.
This is a great investment for anyone that spends any amount of time in an office environment.
Large White Board
Big dry erase white boards can turn any office or room into a much more productive environment. There are plenty of different sizes and models of white boards to choose from online.
This particular one is a reasonable size that is already ready to mount and get to work for you. Highly recommended!
Graphtec Vinyl Cutter
Vinyl decal cutters can be used in so many different applications. If you're needing to create custom logo stickers, custom decals, stencils for projects, window advertisements, and much more.
One of the best investments that I made, I'll be hanging on to mine for quite some time. I keep finding new ways to incorporate it into business!
Macbook Pro 15″
All of my work gets done on a Macbook Pro and I wouldn't have it any other way. They are so powerful, they design is clean, and there are so many different great programs for Entrepreneurs available directly from the App Store.
I'd recommend Apple's Macbook Pro to anyone looking to upgrade their current computer setup, you won't regret the investment.
iPad Mini 3
I originally purchase my iPad Mini to use it for flying my DJI Phantom drone (coming next). I've found myself using this iPad for so much more though, it comes in handy when working on-the-go.
As with all Apple products, this integrates with your other devices and has that operating system I've come to love. I'd recommend an iPad Mini to anyone looking for mobile options to extend working conditions.
DJI Phantom 3 Drone
Drones, they're an investment for anyone that is filming or taking photos and they're super fun to operate! I absolutely love my DJI Phantom 3 and would recommend it for anyone else.
We'll be seeing more and more drones take businesses to the next level in the future. Any entrepreneur could do great things with one of these. If you're a bit of a big kid inside or outside of work, you may want to check out bb guns, they're just as much fun as a drone and they're a great way to get active.
Schlage Keyless Lock with Alarm
I absolutely love my keyless Schlage door lock system. It's so easy to lose, forget, or misplace keys and this keypad entry system allows for coded, keyless entry. It even has a built in alarm on the back of the door!
Highly recommended for added security at your home, office, warehouse, or other space.
One of the newest and greatest innovations in Home Automation is the Amazon Echo. Very similar to Siri, this device will answer questions, make calendar events, shopping lists, etc. all on a cloud based service.
This is a great tool to have around the house and will add functionality and ease of use into your home or office.
Nutri Ninja Blender
If you are not a coffee drinker and prefer healthy drink options, this Ninja Professional Blender is a great choice! You can make some amazing smoothies and protein/vitamin packed drinks that will fuel your workday right along.
These are very affordable and are very powerful smoothie and drink blenders.
Wake-up Light Clock
These clocks are a life changer, you can slowly wake up to a light that you set for a specific time. They're very affordable, reliable, and definitely worth it. Check them out!
Hydro Flask Water Bottle/Coffee Mug
Another must have item for anyone that I must include in this gift guide for entrepreneurs is a Hydro Flask stainless steel water bottle. I swear by mine and it goes everywhere that I go. Who knew an ice cube could stay in solid form for so long!
I'm linking to one with a flip-up lid, which is easier and more convienient than a screw top lid, yet there are other lid and color options on Amazon.
Real Leather Briefcase
Stylish, affordable, and functional – this real leather briefcase by Kattee is amazing! It has lots of storage and will fit up to a 16″ laptop.
What I love most about leather is the way is patinas and ages over time and use. These make excellent, classy gifts for any entrepreneur.
Mini Biometric Safe
Keeping your money, passports, important documents, and other things in a locked safe is always a good idea. This mini safe made by BARSKA is a nice option.
It holds up to 30 fingerprints of registered users, can mount to a wall, and is very secure.
Wintersmith's Ice Ball Chest
This awesome Startup company funded their product through Kickstarter. If you haven't heard of these, you've got to check them out! I love my setup – the ice balls make any drink look very classy and cool down.
These molds are made of BPA-free, FDA approved food safe silicone and the ice lasts longer, doesn't dilute your drink, and will not break into little bits and pieces. A great gift for anyone!
Eames Style Lounge Chair
Bring a rendition of one of the most stylish, classic looking lounge chairs into your home or office. These chairs are normally very pricey, yet this chair is currently sitting at a very affordable rate. I'd snag one here for the entrepreneur in your life (or yourself) before they're all sold out!
Quickbooks Accounting Software

This goes hand-in-hand with Quickbooks accounting software, both powered by Intuit.
