Presents for the advertising geek in your life
Advertising people tend to be addicted to social media and inseparable from their smartphone. Make sure they never have to endure a moment without checking the latest status update or what’s being shared about their brand with a Mophie Juice Pack. It’s a slim phone case that is also an extra battery.
These publications are a great source of inspiration and information, I always love receiving the latest copy of Idealog or NZ Marketing. A year’s subscription will cost $32 – $36. Good value and a gift that will literally keep giving!
This quintessential advertising drama is the logical DVD for the Mad Man (or woman) in your life. Series One is available from Mighty Ape for $19.99. If you’re not sure which seasons your recipient seen then another option is the book Mad Men and Philosopy: Nothing Is As It Seems. However you will need to make a gift card for this one as it wont arrive pre-Xmas.
An advertising geek’s life includes meetings, lots of meetings. Stationary is an easy option and you can never have too many notebooks! Here’s a few of my favourite picks:
|Notebooks from Typo – for the advertising geek who takes themselves seriously, but not too seriously!’|
|The NY Walls Notebook – instead of note paper this includes photos of NYC streets which allows you to unleash your inner graffiti artist
You’ve really made it when your brand is cool enough to be a tee shirt slogan. The advertiser in your life will appreciate the irony that these ad slogans that have become so viral that people are paying to wear them. Both are available from Mr Vintage (Ghost Chips and Peach Teats).
7. Last Resort
And if all else fails, remember most advertisers live on caffeine so a coffee card will always be well received. To make it more personal find out their favourite coffee shop and load with their usual order.
