13 Unique Productivity Gifts For A Journalist

Give their work life a nice boost with one of a kind gifts from this list

Journalists do a whole lot more than write articles. They need to research, spend hours reading on their laptops (not necessarily in coffee shops), and they sometimes record short segments.

#7 BOYA Upgrade 2.4GHz Wireless Lavalier Lapel Mic

BOYA Upgrade 2.4GHz Wireless Lavalier Lapel Mic
As a journalist, there’s always quotes and soundbytes you need to gather from people. While journalists often have expensive gear provided to them in order to collect that, equipment sometimes fails or dies.

That’s why I think a BOYA wireless lavalier microphone kit that’s compatible with many smartphones would be such a great gift for any journalist. If their gear fails, they can quickly plug in the kit to get great audio while shooting video on their smartphone. Since smartphones shoot video in 4K now, you don’t need more than your phone and the wireless mic kit to get great video and sound.

It’d also be great for a journalist to have the kit while they’re just out and about, hanging out with friends. You never know when you’ll come across something newsworthy and without a mic kit, you wouldn’t be able to get good audio. It’s also fun to be able to make videos with your friends with it!

#13 Double Lives: True Tales of the Criminals Next Door by Eric Brach

Double Lives: True Tales of the Criminals Next Door by Eric Brach
John Wayne Gacy. Ted Bundy. Jeffrey Dahmer. Everyone has heard of these sociopaths and their crimes, and yet, no one is scared of them. Why?

Well, we can see them for what they are; they hold no mystery. Dastardly though they were, they’re famous. They’re celebrities. For all intents and purposes, they’re Paris Hilton. What really shocks us is the unknown. It’s the commonality shared by Adnan from Serial and Jame Gumb from Silence of the Lambs: the criminals who blend in are the ones that captivate us the most. Double Lives is a book that chronicles those very monsters who walk unnoticed among us – the neighbors and students, professionals and friends living out criminal double lives. Double Lives is a nonfiction expose and a search that details the exploits of some of the worst serial killers in recent American history, all of whom succeeded in going undetected for years while perpetrating one gross crime after another: in their own hometowns.

Gender? Race? Age? Socioeconomic class? It doesn’t matter. All stripes of people from all walks of life are profiled.
