Gifts can be tricky, but we’re here to help! Here are 20 gift ideas for the female entrepreneur in your life, sure to make her smile.
1. Espresso Machine
Coffee is the lifeblood of most entrepreneurs. Give the gift of early morning happiness, a frothy, creamy cappuccino made in your entrepreneur’s own home. We suggest, the reasonably priced and high quality DeLonghi Espresso and Cappaccino Maker. It pulls a double shot of espresso and can steam milk to perfection!
2. Dash Buttons
Now this is a unique idea. Choose from over 150 Dash Buttons for only $4.99 each. With one touch of a button have your household needs shipped to you in a dash. Place the buttons conveniently around the house (or maybe in one spot) and simply press the button to re-order the product you are running low on. This is a great time saver and rids the nuisance of shopping for supplies.
3. Amazon Echo
Who said gift ideas can’t be fun? The Amazon Echo is a voice activated speaker that links to your wi-fi to provide music streaming, news, weather, local business information, traffic reports – and more! This device can be used for entertainment, but can also be extremely useful in every day activities.

6. Clothing Gift Cards
All entrepreneurs must invest in branding themselves appropriately, they are the face of the company after all and looking good is necessity. Gift ideas here include, a Banana Republic gift card, a Gap gift card, or maybe just an Amazon gift card so she can pick and choose.
A luxury gift idea, but what girl doesn’t like to be pampered? (Especially when you mention the name Jimmy Choo.) The Jimmy Choo perfume is a 4.5 star reviewed perfume, with a scent that will leave your entrepreneur smelling subtly sweet.
This drool worthy purse will leave your entrepreneur breathless. Sleek, yet practical, the Loto Monteverde Leather Bag is a sturdy option for books, laptops, and all those business cards.
