Ready, set, shop!
Thinking about what to get this Holiday for your Virtual Assistant but not sure where to start?
I have pulled together a long list to make this Holiday Shopping for you a breeze!
Having both US and International based VA’s, it was important to find brands and businesses that were available and easy to navigate.
Want to know the top answer from all three of my Va’s? Sephora came up each time.
A BIG thank you to all of the hard working Virtual Assistants out there! As a former Assistant myself, I know first hand how much work is involved. Thank you for all that you do and making our business run smoothly behind the scenes!
STUCK FOR IDEAS? HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVES:
It is a beauty & wellness gift card that allows you to go to a spa anywhere nearby that accepts the card. Let your Assistant choose weither she wants a hot stone massage, craniosacral therapy or Hydrafacial at their favorite local spa.
Of course this Esthetician would love anything spa, these are wrapped so cute and hold a lot of items.
Birch box will surprise your VA each month! Have them enjoy and experience different brands each month, offering them an opportunity to mix and match their favorite beauty brands!
Need more options and want different price points? Crate Joy is a subscription box lovers dream, with so many interests, it will be hard to choose just one! If needing more flexibility, you have the option of choosing one or several months and the types of boxes to choose from are endless.
I received this one year and it was so good! The presentation alone is gorgeous
It’s not just for Valentine’s Day: Godiva makes some of the most beautiful gift baskets, luxurious and decadent chocolates to get your VA into the New Year!
A twist on the ordinary snack box! How cute are these! Directly sourced from Japanese local makers, this snack assortment would make anyone rush to the mailbox for their International treats coming their way!
Sip and Stay calm: Your VA will have their TEA box to the rescue, to unwind after their super busy days. This one just speaks to me, as I love a fun, tasty tea in the afternoon for a pick me up!
For your Fashion VA: Style your VA all year round with Stitch Fix.
Books with Style with Juniper Books: Your book worm VA can now have their shelves in style for all of their swoons worthy photography shots! The custom book jackets allow your VA to have their bookshelf match their color theme, or check out their collection of themes for a standout shelf in their office. Just.plain.cool.
If you work with a VA in other countries like I do, and want to make use of one of these ideas, you will most likely need to purchase the e-gift voucher from their country-specific URL!
FOR EXAMPLE: Instead of Sephora.com, head to Sephora.com.nz!
AND FOR YOUR INTERNATIONAL TEAM:
Two of my VA’s are International, one in New Zealand and the other in the Philippines. I used google currency exchange to convert the currency rate for both countries.
It needs no introduction ;)
Because no one says no to a few new apps!
Audio-Book queen? Audible is the perfect holiday gift!
Know of a maker that creates gorgeous work? Now is your chance to purchase from them! And no doubt your VA will get a kick out of you supporting a small business!
Know they can’t get enough of the latest makeup brands? This one’s a no-brainer!!
For the hard-working music lover!
Does your VA basically live at Starbucks? Get that gift card – you know they’ll love it.
When you’re just not sure what to get, Uncommon goods is packed full of ideas and cool products!
INTERNATIONAL GIFT CARDS
Find out which gift cards are used for your VA’s country. For the Philippines, Gifted allows your VA to use their card at their business of choice. This platform was the easiest one to navigate for my VA in Asia.
Let your International VA select the gift of your choice. If your VA lives in Indonesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore or Brazil then Shopee is the place for you to get your VA their gift card of choice.
GIFT BOX BOUTIQUE -NEW ZEALAND
The gift boxes from gift Box Boutique are absolutely stunning. I found these on Instagram when I noticed my New Zealand VA received a gift from them and posted it on her gram so of COURSE I took note! This one is a keeper for those Virtual Assistants that live in New Zealand!
Enjoy all of these options and wishing our VA’s worldwide the Merriest of Holidays!
