‘Tis the season for holiday shopping! While you’ll likely find gift guides for parents, significant others, and children across your news and social media feeds, it may be more difficult to find a curated selection for the public relations professional on your list.

Look no further! Whether you want to add an encouraging touch to a recent grad’s stocking stuffer or hope to sleigh Secret Santa this year, we’ve made a list (and checked it twice!) of the top holiday must-haves to spread cheer to the PR pro in your life.

  1. Waterproof Notepad:
    • It might sound strange, but some of the best brainstorming happens in the least expected places like on a walk, in the car, and yes, even in the shower! A waterproof notepad will help them keep track of creative ideas while their conditioner sets in.
  2. Portable Phone Charger:
    • As we return to in-person events, it’s likely that they’re communicating with media, influencers, clients, and vendors, plus capturing content throughout the day. In a profession where being connected is key, a portable phone charger is a lifesaver.
  3. Smartphone Tripod and Microphone Kit:
    • PR professionals often find themselves in situations where they need to capture high-quality video or audio on the go. A portable tripod and microphone kit can be a handy addition to their toolkit.
  4. Mug Warmer:
    • Between meetings, client asks, and unexpected media requests, it can be easy to get stuck in a cycle of reheating a cup of coffee or tea, just to let it go cold. A mug warmer is a perfect way to help them stay caffeinated no matter what the day brings!
  5. Audiobook Subscription Service:
    • Many companies embrace a flexible, hybrid schedule. Help them make the most of the commute on their in-office days by gifting a premium audiobook or podcast subscription service.
  6. Ergonomic Desk Chair:
    • On the flip side, work-from-home days (and their at-home office set up) deserve equal attention. Treat them to an ergonomic office chair that can provide the support needed to power through pitching, strategy meetings, and more.
  7. Personalized Stationery:
    • Public relations is all about relationships. While a lot of the work we do is online, a handwritten note included in a media mailer or sent as a thank you can go a long way in showcasing their personality and building rapport with journalists and influencers.
  8. AP Style Guide Cheat Sheet:
    • We get it, this six-page AP-style cheat sheet may seem boring, but we promise it’ll be their most-used stocking stuffer. Pair it with a playful vinyl sticker about the Oxford comma (IYKYK) to strike a balance between functional and fun.
  9. Daily Writing Prompt Book:
    • We’ve all been there – staring at the page, rewriting the same sentence, waiting for the words to come. When writer’s block inevitably hits, these quick prompts are a fun way to get them out of their head and get the creative juices flowing again.
  10. Noise Cancelling Headphones:
  • While we love it when the office is bustling with chatter and creative ideas, these headphones will help them block out the noise and focus on crafting a perfect press release or taking a call from their desk.


There you have it! With these gifts, you’ll be helping your PR rockstar unwrap success in the holiday season and beyond. There are a few other items on our wish lists, like media answering each pitch or our TikTok concept going viral, but we’ll leave those for Santa. 😉 Happy Holidays!
