If their job requires them to sit in front of a computer screen or any gadgets that emit blue light for an extended period of time, consider getting him or her a blue light blocking reading glass. Bombarding the eye with blue lights for a long period of time contributes to eye strain, can cause daytime fatigue, can upset a person’s natural rhythm and may lead to macular degeneration according to eye specialists All About Vision and Wexner Medical Centre. These specialists recommend wearing glasses with yellow-tinted lenses because it helps to reduce the penetration of blue light and increase contrast on the screen.


  • These lenses by KLIM optics has been noted to block 92% of blue light and helps to reduce headache and fatigue induced by blue lights
  • They are affordable
  • A lot of customers that have bought them consider them effective


  • There is so much controversy on what constitutes effective blue light blocking glasses and even more annoying is that you are not guaranteed to get the best glasses even at a costlier price. At least, KLIM optics seem more honest in their product description.
  • This particular frame may not be suitable for everyone. We encourage that you go through their products and source for other frames. You can also ask an optician to recommend the best glasses

In terms of buying the best blue light blocking glasses, we do not think that the cost of buying the glass reflects its quality. You could get a glass close to 100 dollars and would still not be effective. Do a little more digging if you have to but meanwhile, you can try out these ones. You might also like Swanwicks blue light blocking glasses.


Another productivity gift for busy people will be this height-adjustable mobile desk if their work confines them to a desk or computer. Sitting down for a long time can get pretty uncomfortable at times but busy people may push themselves to endure the strains of it because they feel that their work is fast-paced and leaves them no room to pace around for a while. With an ergonomic desk like this, they can work a bit more flexibly. They can choose to stand or sit and move around their work station more easily. This mobile work desk can be adjusted from 27.1” to 49.9” high and the desktop is wide enough to fit any laptop, tablet or monitor. The moveable wheels are another thing to love about this desk. They can also be used for meetings, teaching, and presentations.


  • This mobile desk will help busy people stay active while working. They can stretch their legs when they have to without feeling like they are wasting work time. It generally improves their level of comfort while working
  • It is easy to assemble
  • The size and quality of the desk is excellent
  • Can be easily adjusted for the purposes of comfort


  • Most complaints come from how the product was packaged. Some customers had missing screws or dented products.

A stand-up desk is great but it should not substitute a chill-out session. Rest and fun times are important to a person’s health. When it comes to this adjustable desk, a lot of customers consider it to be a value for money item. They rated it high for stability, maneuverability, easy to assemble, and value for money.


One of the best productivity gifts you can get a busy person who is always on the move is this portable powerhouse. They do not have to worry about their phones or laptops dying on them when they have this 70200mAh power bank with them. Apart from the fact that this power bank can last a while (if used to charge only smaller gadgets), there are multiple ways of charging this generator. It can be charged through a normal wall outlet, or a 12-24 volt car charger, and lastly, a solar panel charger. The size makes it convenient to carry around and it isn’t so heavy.


  • It is the best emergency item to have especially for on-the-go kind of people
  • It is portable and convenient
  • It charges fast
  • Value for money


  • Certain gadgets might be heavy on this generator. Check the product page for more specifications

This is a highly recommended product.


Planning goes a long way in helping a person accomplish their goals. Quite often, busy people forget to include other personal matters in their plans. This could get them in a lot of conflicts with people that care about them and hence add more unneeded stress to them. We would have recommended a more formal journal but instead, we will recommend this Leather journal set for that person you care about. This journal looks less formal and more personal. Perhaps, they would be more persuaded to include other beneficial personal matters in their day to day busy schedule (if they are less fond of doing such). It is part of being productive after all. This is a really beautiful set too.


  • The exterior of the journal is made with quality leather and it feels soft
  • Good craftsmanship
  • Elegant set


  • Tying and untying the journal might probably bug a little. it’s a matter of individual differences

This is a good gift and busy creative people will love it.


We know how annoying it can get when we are trying to concentrate but can’t because of so many distracting noises and activities going on all around us. A noise-canceling headphone is another gift a busy person will appreciate. Looking for the perfect headphones have been a needle search in a haystack. There is always something another person would not like about whichever headphone you might deem perfect. However, when it comes to noise cancellation, this Sony WH1000XMA/B wireless headphones does a pretty decent job.


  • They are comfortable
  • Effective with noise cancellation
  • A decent battery life
  • Good sound quality


  • The updates can be annoying

Apart from this Sony WH1000XMA/B noise-canceling headphones, BOSE 35 is equally a great option


One thing about working too much is that it takes its toll on the body. Excessive stress often causes body sores which could affect their productivity in the long run. While it is important for workaholics or busy people to take out time to relax and exercise, you can buy for them this portable massage gun for neck and back pain. It helps to relieve sore and stiff muscles. It has 7 interchangeable heads and 5 speed levels to soothe different massage needs.

  • There is only little a person experiencing back pain can do for themselves with this gun massager unless they are assisted by someone else.

Aside from a gun massager, a foot spa massager is another lovely gift for a busy woman or man. This beautiful product will help them to relieve feet sores after the whole day or week of standing or pacing around. This foot massager has 3 different modes in different frequencies, an automatic massage roller, 16 automatic massage balls, and 2 surfing jets that helps to spread heat evenly. The water temperature can be set from 35 degrees celsius to 48 degrees celsius. This is a good pamper gift for someone who is always busy.


  • It is easy to use
  • Customer find this product effective in relieving fatigue
  • The temperature setting is great as well as the massage roller that helps to target the entire feet.


  • It is not uncommon to receive a malfunctioning product, and the cost of returning it and stress too is all the more annoying. We hope that this will not be the case if you choose to buy this foot massager as a gift.

Products like these are helpful in relieving stress and fatigue and a busy person will certainly appreciate it.



A time-saving gift you can get for a busy student, office worker or mom is this portable printer. This pocket printer should help with study notes, meeting notes, labelings, lists printouts, beautiful stickers, and many more. Imagine reading a useful text from a book and not having enough time to jot it down. All you have to do is scan it or take a picture of it and have this portable printer print it out for you.

A travel mug set will make a good gift for busy early morning risers who hardly find time to eat a decent breakfast on a dining table, those who travel a lot, or live in front of their screen or spend an awful amount of time working. Whether it is hot coffee or cool mango juice they prefer to drink, they need a well-insulated mug that will keep their drinks reasonably warm or cool before they are done drinking.

In case they are fond of hot beverages, save them many trips to the kitchen by getting them this coffee warmer by Scobuty as a desk gift. They can now make a full jug of tea or coffee and keep it close by. The good thing about this warmer is that it not only retains heat but also heat up a cold beverage to 55 degrees celsius. The warmer has a waterproof panel that prevents the risk of hazards.


  • The mug is effective
  • The waterproof panel is a good safety feature
  • It can be used as a phone chargers as well as a warmer

For busy moms and dads, home chores have been made a little easier with these toy gadgets. Instead of spending an awful amount of time fighting tough microwave stains, all they need to do is to add water and vinegar to this angry mom microwave cleaner, microwave her for 7 mins as her hot head releases hot steam that will dissolve that tough stains, then open the microwave and clean off the stains. For cool-mom fridge odor absorber, just fill her up with baking soda and keep her in the fridge. The fridge will smell great for a long time.

Busy people don’t always have time to sweep all the time. If they can delegate the task to a gadget, why not? Robot vacuums are one of the best things that have happened to busy people and Bagotte vacuum cleaner is one of the best robot vacuums out there. It has 3 levels of suction power that thoroughly vacuums different surfaces and even hard to reach places such as under the bed. It has vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping features but all three features can be completely accessed by making an additional purchase of a water tank. This vacuum has been equipped with different sensors to help it navigate a room easily and can easily switch modes to meet the cleaning needs of each surface. The package includes; a robot vacuum, a remote and 2 AAA batteries, charging base, power adapter, a magnetic stripe of 2 meters long,  additional HEPA strainer, additional foam strainers, 4 side brushes, auxiliary tool, and a user manual.


  • Easy to operate
  • Has a good suction system
  • It is of better quality than many competing brands


  • Although this vacuum cleaner does a good job, it does not replace actual cleanup. It is also limited in the amount of work it can do.

Very effective robot vacuum and will be useful to a busy person.


What gift can I get someone who works all the time?

Any gift that will make their work a little easier on them depending on what they do. If they work on their computer for long hours, a blue light blocking glass and an adjustable desk will make a good gift. A portable printer will help a busy student or mom organize their work. The angry mom microwave cleaner and fridge odor absorber will make the work of parents a little bit easier. A coffee warmer will save a busy person many trips to the kitchen. Every item we have identified will make a lovely gift for a busy person.


When picking out a good gift for a busy person, look for gifts that are relevant to them and what they do. For example, if they spend a lot of time on their feet, a foot massager will be great as much as comfortable footwear. Items that will enhance their comfort, improve their health, and reduce the time spent on a task are your best bet.
