The holidays are quickly approaching and with that comes the stress of trying to find personalized, meaningful gifts for your family and friends. But do not fret! Here are 10 of our favorite social media-themed gifts for 2019 for everyone in your social circle: from your friend who only speaks in emojis, your coworker whose goal in life is to take the perfect selfie, or your Insta-famous pup.
1. 16"x20" Letter board w/ 290-characters — Black felt, silver frame
You've probably seen these letter boards on Pinterest or Instagram with funny phrases like, "Why buy it for $7 when you can make it yourself with $92 of craft supplies?" or "Not all who wander to the kitchen at midnight are lost."
These letter boards from Letter Folk are a great way to add charm, personality, and humor into your home, and it's the perfect gift for your friend looking to revamp her apartment, your mom who wants to add new decor into her kitchen, or a business owner who wants to create an Instagrammable workspace.
2. Portable iPhone Charger
This is a great gift for any friend or family member who's always on the go (or for someone who lives in a city with freezing winters like Chicago—the cold always seems to drain phone batteries quickly!). With this cute, trendy iPhone charger from Uncommon Goods, your friend will never find themselves frantically searching for an outlet in a crowded Starbucks to charge their 2-percent-battery-life phone again.
3. Fujifilm SQ20 Instax SQUARE Instant Camera
Today, some might say that smart phones' built-cameras are just as good as traditional cameras, and that you don't need to buy a separate camera anymore. But similar to holding a physical book versus reading one on a tablet, there's something special about using a real, physical camera rather than snapping a quick photo from your iPhone. For your photography-loving friends, the Fujifilm SQ20 Instax SQUARE Instant Camera would make a great gift.
The SQ20 is a hybrid instant camera that shoots photos digitally and prints to Instax SQUARE film. You can retake, edit, and take stills from 15-second videos for innovative instant photos. You can also choose from a selection of filters and effects.
4. Believe in Your #Selfie Poster
Who doesn't love a good motivational poster early in the morning? This "Believe in your #Selfie" poster would make a great addition in your friend's office, room, or even home gym.
5. LuMee iPhone 7® Plus Photo-Lighting Duo Case, Matte Rose
Speaking of selfies, this iPhone case gives you studio-quality lighting so you can take the ultimate selfie. Developed by a professional photographer, the LuMee Duo's features include front and back LED lighting, a silm, sleek design, an on/off dimmer switch, a protective and durable case, soft/strong raised TPU edges, and a rechargeable battery and charging cord.
6. Selfie Citation Nifty Notes
With great selfies, comes great responsibility. We've all been guilty of the #ootd (outfit of the day) selfie, the bathroom selfie, the wine selfies, the lovey-dovey selfie, the pet-as-prop selfies... but sometimes it's too much—for you, your followers, and the "props" (e.g. your puppy, your kid, your significant other, etc).
This funny "Selfie Citation" notepad from Knock Knock is a great gift for anyone. In fact, if you're shopping for gifts for friends who don't like social media, this could be a great gift for them! Hopefully they don't dole one out to you!
7. Gold Emojis mug
This Gold Emojis mug from Papyrus will have you waking up every morning feeling fabulous. The mug handle says "Today I am excited about everything," which is a great mantra to start the day with. This is an awesome gift for the coffee/tea drinkers in your life.
8. Emoji Adhesive Patches (Set of 2)
These adorable Emoji Adhesive Patches would be great gifts for your nieces or nephews, your fashionable friends, or anyone else who loves all things emoji. You could add them to your backpack, your purse, or your notebook.
9. Typo silver hash tag mini marquee light
This simple, modern hashtag design will light up any space, whether it's for your friend's room, office, or kitchen.
10. BARK Hallechewjah! Emoji Hands Dog Toy
And last but not least, a chew toy for your dog! This BARK Hallechewjah! Emoji Hands Dog Toy, as the product name notes, is modeled off of the Hallelujah emoji hands. It's a great way to celebrate your dog and keep them entertained this holiday season.
