Are you a Social Media Manager that wants to treat yourself to some useful Christmas gifts? Nothing says self-love more than a gift that you will enjoy but will also help you with your job.

Or, do you have a loved one that works in social media and you just don’t know what to get them?
Well, here is our ultimate Christmas gift guide for Social Media Managers.

Social Media Books

We’ve all said that we want to read more as a New Year’s resolution before. If you haven’t, then that probably means that you read a lot. Either way, the below books are a great stocking filler for any social media lover. The pace of social media change can mean a good book on the subject is difficult to find. The following recommendations explore the fundamentals and share insights into some of the leading platforms.

  1. Facebook: The Inside Story Book– Amazon

In this fascinating narrative, award-winning tech reporter Steven Levy tells the story of how Facebook has changed our world and asks what the consequences will be for us all. Expect innovations, interviews and inspirations.

This book won the FT Business Book of the Year award and has received many great reviews. Once you read no filter, you will understand even more how Instagram transformed business, celebrities and culture. The most successful photo app in history has changed society and this book reveals how.

  1. Smart Mug

Have you ever made yourself a hot drink, sat down at your desk, and emerged yourself in work, only to realise that your drink is now stone cold? It’s awful isn’t it!

I know what you’re probably thinking… “a mug for over £100?!?”. This isn’t just any old mug. This temperature-control smart mug will revolutionise the way you drink your tea or coffee. The creators of the smart mug, Ember, have been recognised by leading publications and organisations, such as Women’s Health, Men’s Health and PEOPLE. This is one of the most advanced mugs on the market and allows you to set and maintain your preferred drinking temperate for any hot beverage.

You can control the mug with your smartphone, set your preferred drinking temperature, and crack on with your work without the worry of cold coffee. Treat yourself to a handy gadget and be the envy of your colleagues or treat your most-forgetful friend with a gift they’ll get a lot of use out of.

No more cheap, flimsy gimbal or tripod that will break after 3 uses. This magnetic and portable smartphone gimbal from DJI comes with its own foldable tripod. This device is perfect for vlogging on the go with a 3-axis stabilization feature.

The easy phone attachment lets you capture smooth and creative footage wherever you are. It is the perfect creative companion and is extremely lightweight. From snapping a selfie or filming the ultimate video, the power is in your hands.

Smiirl’s Facebook and Instagram counters will display your business’ likes or follower count in real-time. You get to watch as the split-flaps show your account (hopefully) flooding with new followers.

Your data has never felt so physical. Treat the office with one of these handy counters to show them exactly how hard you work. Or get it for yourself at home as a reminder that you are the social media wizard and your efforts are paying off.

Not 100% sold? Well, they offer a 100-day risk-free trial on their social counters. If you don’t like them, simply return them. No problem.
