Can you believe it's only a week until Christmas? If you need a last-minute gift for your favorite blogger friend, or if someone in your life needs a little help finding something for you, I've rounded up some of my picks here. Behold the 2013 last-minute holiday guide for bloggers:

Charge up

Nothing is worse than being out at events (or anywhere, really) with a dead phone. I love my Boostcase hybrid phone case, but there are so many options for iPhone, Android, tablets and computers. Mophie has a suite of charging products, and there are a few cute ones on Etsy and ModCloth. Check out the amazing designer USB bracelets on eBay – Mara Hoffman and Milly currently have cute bangles that double as phone chargers on-the-go.

Stylize

We spend a ton of time in front of and/or behind cameras, computers, phones and tablets. These devices are as much a personal style accessory as your bracelets and bags – so why not make them every bit as stylish as you are? Jennine shared some fabulous camera straps from Selbz, and there's a whole world of tablet sleeves and laptop bags out there too. I love Krochet Kids' ‘Simon' tablet sleeve, and inCase always has great designer collaborations of tech-friendly bags and sleeves.

Add on

Our devices do so much for us already, but there are a few add-ons out there that make them even better. Fish-eye lens add a different perspective to your smartphone camera, while stylus pens bring your handwriting & drawing to digital life.

Organize

Get a head start on 2014 with some sweet new organizational tools. I always love a good wall calendar, and the Moleskine for Evernote bridges the gap between your paper and digital note-taking.

Educate

The world of blogging is constantly evolving, and there's always something new to learn. A pass to a blogger conference or an upcoming workshop is a gift that'll keep on giving!

Relax

You've spent a ton of time this holiday season on others – why not take a moment for yourself? To a massage, mani, haircut/blowout or maybe some time with a good book or your journal, that is. Tis' the season to indulge in some relaxation!

Happy holidays!

    Here’s another (selfish) idea – how about a gift certificate to a design & branding shop? You can choose the amount and your blogger friend can choose what to put it towards – blog header? Logo? Small graphics? A media kit design? I offer all these and more. 😉 http://lixhewettdesign.etsy.com/

    I have a mobile charger for my phone/iPad – it is a life saver!

    Organisers are a great idea, I’m going to get a diary to help me plan things for my blog and keep track of things next year!
