Festive season is here, and the hospitality world is kicking into high cheer.
Often this time of year, that cheer includes gifting. Screen Pilot surveyed an array of hoteliers, management teams, marketing pros, and related hospitality professionals to see what they’re wishing for in 2019.
Whether you’re shopping for clients, colleagues, loved ones or yourself, here are ten holiday gift ideas for hospitality peeps and patrons.
We admit it. Some of us at Screen Pilot don’t maintain our water bottle like we should. That’s why we love the LARQ self-cleaning water bottle, the world’s first portable water purification system powered by UV-C LED technology.
It’s a stylish, sustainable water bottle alternative with a built-in light that eliminates up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants from your water and bottle.
Since the double-wall, vacuum insulated container self-cleans every two hours, we know we’re enjoying a pure, fresh hydration break, no matter how late we’re at our desk.
Attach it to your keyring, bag, or favorite bottle of rosé.
The Chipolo Bluetooth tracker is tiny, just 1.38 inch x 0.2 inch, has a replaceable battery, is compatible with both iOS and Android, and works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Color options abound, and custom engraving is available. One chip runs $25, but buy a four-pack or six-pack and save.
Power Luggage Tag
Lots of luggage today comes with a built-in battery, making it convenient to charge your devices on the road. But what if you’re partial to an older travel case that lacks a charging station?
CALPAK offers these vegan-leather luggage tags with a removable battery pack. Available in six patterns and colors, it’s an easy and practical way to tag your favorite bag.
This Brooklyn-based roaster offers personalized, farmer-focused, eco-friendly coffee subscriptions. It all starts when the subscriber receives a tasting kit representing four different proﬁles. After rating each via the Driftaway app, future shipments of small-batch, single-origin coffees are personalized to taste.
Subscription services start at around $75, with options to add more beans, more frequently.
Who brought the music? You did, if you have this waterproof, weatherproof Bluetooth speaker by JBL.
The highly rated device boasts 12 hours or playtime, powerful sound, and integrates with voice assistants such a Siri and Google Now. And when you’re ready for a DJ battle, a second device can simultaneously connect so you can trade musical blows. Available in an array of colors, including camouflage.
There’s no harm in indulging in these gummy bears infused with Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne, even if you’re on the clock.
This limited holiday edition gift set from luxury confectioner Sugarfina boasts flavors of classic brut and fashionable rosé.
AirPods Pro are the latest must-have product for the Apple fan in the crew. Sure, you can listen, talk, and workout with these, as with any “true wireless” in-ear headphones, but these buds also have active noise cancellation, which is continuously adjusted about 200 times per second for truly immersive sound.
Someone step into your office? Flip over to “transparency mode” to better hear them. Plus, the AirPods Pro work seamlessly with Siri, and include three sizes of flexible silicone tips, affording a customizable fit and all-day comfort. Holiday Hint: Buy them direct from Apple for free engraving.
This wraparound pillow by Ostrichpillow allows you to zone out practically anywhere and at any time.
The ergonomic design promises a perfect fit for the majority of head shapes and sizes, and the Velcro closure affords a secure, total blackout experience, perfect for cat naps at your desk, or catching ZZZs on the plane.
Frequent travelers appreciate the zen of organization.
This colorful set of nylon, zippered pouches from Baggu – one small, one medium, one large – makes it easy to keep organized during all phases of your journey, and is available in multiple prints and patterns.
Polaroid is making real film is fun again. This reimagined classic, based on the original Polaroid OneStep from 1977, takes beautiful instant film photos with its standard lens, and has a secondary portrait lens for capturing sharp closeups.
Take your art to the next level by connecting your camera to the Polaroid app, and access a suite of creative tools, such as double exposure.
