Meeting Planner Gift Guide for the Holidays

By Crystal Carrazco

As a thank you to your colleagues (or to forward to your special someone) check out what should be on your list this year.

Fitbit jewelry

Wearables track your steps, but now these utilitarian bracelets are getting accessories to make them look more like jewelry. Check out these gorgeous Tory Burch items for fitbit.


Everpurse is a purse that charges your phone! From morning room checks and crew calls to evening events, make sure your phone never lets you down.


Tired of missing calls while on site? Check out this little number. A ring that lights up/vibrates when your phone rings – AND it’s super cute.


Tieks are on Oprah’s list as her favorite flats. They come in every color and style, fold up and are easily stowed in your bag.

Airline Club Membership

Not earning enough miles to gain access to a lounge? Gain access through an annual membership with American Airlines and United Airlines or just purchase Priority Pass access to business lounges throughout the world.

Iphone 6 or other tablet

If you don’t have access to books, music, and videos while you are constantly on the road, I am not sure how you keep up-to-date. Check out the latest tech and reviews here.

Don’t get caught in the Rain

Who has room in their bag for an umbrella? Check out this super compact umbrella by Davek as a perfect small gift idea.

Portable speaker

Don’t leave your music behind just because you are on the road. Or be like PCMA and use this to pump your staff up during early morning meetings. This one performs well according to online reviews and is under $100.

Portable charger

Between running around the show floor and putting out fires, who has time to sit and wait for a phone to charge? Plug this into your phone (iPhone or Android) and let it charge for you.


A meeting planner should have a planner right? Make sure to get it personalized!


Why listen to the airplane noise (or that chatty seatmate) when you have your headphones on? Get these noise blocking headphones without having to crank the volume all the way. Sidenote: These are cheaper and better than whatever new headphone is the rage.
