Whether your a blogger looking for some gift-giving ideas to give your friends and families – or you’re the friend or family of a blogger or WAHM looking for a gift idea, this list is for you!
One of the best things you can give an online entrepreneur is help in growing their business.
Beautiful Blog Set Up Service – Know someone who would like to start their own successful blog for 2017? Give them gift of a beautiful blog – all set up and ready for them to start adding content! They’ll get their first year of web hosting and domain, a beautiful custom blog design with their choice of colors, layout, and logo – plus some great resources to help them know how to start building their brand new blog! $147/ one time
The cost of hosting a business site or blog online can add up pretty quickly. If you’re not sure what web hosting is, it’s what keeps a blog or website running – without hosting, an online business can’t run.
Here are a couple of my favorite hosting companies:
Siteground – Siteground offers affordable hosting and AMAZING support. Plus, they’ll move your site to their hosting for free – so this gift is perfect for any blogger, no matter what hosting platform they’re using! I’ve used Siteground to host several of our blogs and their support team never ceases to amaze me. They’re always willing to help when I run into any issues and have always worked hard to make sure any problem is resolved – even if it’s a problem that’s all my fault! If the blogger in your life has mentioned having problems with their hosting – or they’re due to renew for another year – why not make life easier for them and set them up with this amazing hosting company? $48/yr.
WPEngine – WpEngine is the top-of-the-line hosting for WordPress sites. They specialize in taking care of blogs and sites that are hosted by WordPress – which means less headaches and problems trying to figure out what went wrong with your blog. When Blogelina grew too large for the standard shared hosting plans, we made the switch the WpEngine and have been there ever since! Our blog went from being down a LOT to consistently having 100% up-time each month with WpEngine! $348/yr.
There is A LOT that goes into running a business online – and all these tasks can get a little overwhelming. Here are some services that can help give your favorite blogger or WAHM the gift of time.
WpCurve – SAVE TIME & HEADACHES – Imagine never having another WordPress headache! One of the biggest complaints we get from bloggers here at Blogelina is how overwhelming the tech side of blogging can be.

It’s the gift of no more tech headaches! $79/mo.
