10 Best Gifts For Product People

With the holiday season just around the corner, you might be scrambling to find the perfect gift for a product person. Whether you're buying a gift to reward your team, to give to a special someone, or to spoil yourself, we got you covered! We’ve narrowed it down to the top gifts to get for product people!

1. Product Books
Product people are always looking to learn more and stay updated on the newest topics in product management. A product book is a great gift idea, and there's so many to choose from. Here are a few of our book recommendations:

2. Daily Planner
Product people have busy lives with many things to do. So staying organized is essential to getting their tasks done on time. Daily Planners would be a useful gift product managers!

3. Chess Set
This gift idea isn't related to product, but one that product people would love! Grabbing a chess set is a great gift because they range in prices. A basic chess set won't break the bank, but you can also go big with a fancy one too!

4. Noise Cancelling Headphones
While talking to your team and customers are great, sometimes product people need some quiet time to focus on a particular problem or finish up a business case. This is where noise-cancelling headphones work wonders!

5. Audible Membership
Considering the busy nature of being a product manager, it might be difficult for some to find the time to sit down and read a book. Enter the wonderful world of audiobooks! Instead, they can listen to an audiobook on their commute to work, or on a walk during their lunch break. Check out www.audible.ca

6. Product Conference Tickets
All great product managers need to keep learning. What better way to learn than attending a product conference! Here are a few popular ones happening in 2023:

7. Online Course/Class
Did we mention yet that product people are lifelong learners?! Another great gift is getting them an online class or course they can take! There are some great, online courses from credited universities/schools taught by well known leaders in the industry. Check out MasterClass and edX to browse courses.

8. Flower Subscriptions
A unique gift that is becoming a newer trend is flower subscriptions! Pre-order some beautiful blooms to someone working from home to brighten their home office during the workday. Just do a quick Google search for a local flower shop that does flower subscriptions (make sure they deliver to the person's area).

9. Reusable Mug
For coffee lovers or tea lovers, you can never go wrong with reusable mugs! And, especially for product managers who are most likely drinking coffee or tea during work, this would be the perfect gift. To top it off, it’s environmentally friendly!

10. Post-It Notes
Our last gift suggestion is none other than good ol' post-it note pad! These are the perfect stocking stuffer for a product person! They are inexpensive and very useful for a daily workday, especially a busy product leader.
