Time is such a precious gift because it's a commodity you simply can't buy — or so you think! Some people just seem to have more hours in the day — always managing to stay on top of everything from work to parenting, relationships, and beyond. And then there are others who are perpetually running around trying to get more done, falling behind on life, and struggling to balance it all. More often than not, we find ourselves in the latter, and if you also happen to know someone who fits into that category, one of the most thoughtful gifts you could possibly give is something that will help them to better manage their busy schedules. That's where we come in.
With the holiday season in full swing, we've already begun our shopping for all of the different personalities in our lives — including practical gifts for busy people who are always on the go. We all have a few workaholics or busy professionals in our friend group that seem like they just live at a higher speed than the rest of us. But, like any human, they also need some help with staying organized — and frankly, just finding more time in their day to chill out. With that in mind, we found several holiday treats that are sure to "buy" the recipient some extra time in the new year — and double as the best gift for someone who works a lot.
From reusable notebooks and POPSUGAR editor-loved air fryers to portable steamers, cult-favorite skin-care tools, and more, this list of time-saving gifts ranges from the budget-savvy to the lavish. Ahead, browse our picks for the best gifts for people on the go!
