Office workers, corporate execs, freelancers, and entrepreneurs – they all can’t wait to take some well-deserved time off this Christmas. If you have a special man or woman in your life who is as busy as bee, here are some gift ideas your hard-working significant other will adore.

1. Electronic Accessories

For Him:

A professional can amass a lot of documents, presentations, reports, and other digital files on a regular basis, and he will want some place to safely keep all that important stuff.

A 1 terabyte external hard drive, such as this WD My Passport Ultra from Best Buy, is a versatile device that is compatible with most desktop and laptop computers. A 16 gigabyte USB flash drive is a good, affordable alternative and is easier to carry around.

For Her:

Being a professional means doing a lot reading to keep up with the latest news, trends, and ideas. If your accomplished better half is poring over printed books, newspapers and magazines, then now is the best time to introduce her to e-readers.

E-readers are inexpensive, light, and easy on the eyes compared to tablet computers. Complement her reading device with e-books and electronic magazine subscriptions that promote personal and professional growth.

2. Morning Motivation

For Him:

The Nanda Home Clocky Alarm Clock is a great gift for busy bodies who have trouble waking up in the morning.

When this clock goes off, it rolls off your night table, and keeps on moving around the room while sounding its alarm. A person has no choice but to get out of bed to chase and shut off this clever and persistent clock.

For Her:

She needs her coffee, and she needs it right now! This Black and Decker Brew n’ Go Coffeemaker from Walmart brews her favorite blend directly into its 15 ounce thermal mug.
