Gift ideas for friends who are "busy"

Gift ideas for friends who are "busy"

It seems like we all have too much to do these days. Too much information to take in and too much pressure. If you finally manage to make a plan to see a friend after too many rain checks, it's nice to bring a gift along so you can show you've been thinking of them. We've put together some gift ideas for friends who are busy, busy, busy!



Bullet Journalling has taken the world by storm over the last few years. In his long awaited first book, the creator of the system Ryder Carroll explains how to use his method to track your past, order your present and plan your future. It's an amazing system for people who have a lot of balls in the air as it helps you keep track of and reach your goals.



But of course your friend might be so busy they don't have time to read a book! The official Bullet Journal notebook and a pen is all someone needs to get started. It has intructions and tips for how to set up your journal, so they could be on their way to serenity in no time! The Bullet Journal notebook is also available in Black and Nordic Blue.







Sometimes a busy person just wants to be told to 'feck it' and put their feet up. Nothing says this like a pair of Feck It Socks from Irish Socksciety!




When it's air-popped and eaten plain, popcorn is a super healthy, mega fast, low calorie snack. The Popper is a genius silicone bowl with a lid (which also acts as a tray) which will pop your corn without oil in the microwave in minutes. Your busy friend will thank you for their new-found fuel!







Save your mate some frustrating moments of trying to find their phone charger with this wireless charging mouse pad!







Oogis are irresistibly tactile and mesmerising. A great desk companion for a busy person to take a few moments out to relax and play. Also available in Glow-in-the-dark and Oogi Junior.


Gratitude is a beautiful little book by Oliver Sacks. It's a meditation on what it means to live a good and worthwhile life, on aging and on mortality. This lovely quartet of essays on appreciation and gratitude were written in the last two years of Sacks' life. The book may be small - short enough to read easily in one sitting - but it’s huge in heart and one to read again and again (if you have time)







You may have notied that sometimes a busy person can't even...finish their sentences. Acknowledge their busyness with this awesome enamel pin by Fintan Wall!

We hope we helped you find a gift for your busy friend. If you're too busy yourself to meet them, don't forget we can gift wrap, write a greeting card, and deliver a gift for you!
