2. A RumbleRoller
If you’ve never heard of a RumbleRoller, it might be time to look into these handy massage tools. There’s no denying that many founders and small business owners find themselves behind a computer. Over time, that can impact a person’s physical health. RumbleRollers are designed to relieve muscle pain and target deep tissue to provide a much-needed respite from strain. These rollers come in three sizes (compact, medium, and full). The two colors (blue and black) denote the firmness and density of the RumbleRoller, which ensures the user gets the needed level of massage pressure.
All RumbleRollers are free of harmful chemicals, such as lead and phthalates, latex-free, and non-absorbent. This gift offers founders a much-needed solution to ease any physical tension.
3. Retro Sneakers
Some of the world has gone Allbirds crazy but some of us have gone retro. It's tough to beat a pair of New Balance Men's 574 Core Sneakers for retro cool factor. Thousands of reviews can't be wrong. More accommodating than the narrow racing silhouette, and more visually versatile than its visible tech-laden peers, the 574's formula of unassuming style and comfort have made the hybrid road/trail design a genuine all-time classic. Comes in regular, wide and extra-wide.
4. A Drink Tumbler They’ll Actually Use
YETI Ramblers come standard with their YETI MagSlider Lid, the only drink lid that uses the power of magnets to keep your water, beer, or favorite drink on lock. Their Ramblers are BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and have a No Sweat Design to make sure your hands stay dry. Dracut is a durable coat of color that won't fade, peel, or crack through extended field use and also provide additional grip to the Rambler's exterior. They over-engineered these double-wall insulated tumblers with an 18/8 stainless steel body, which means your drink still keeps its temperature no matter how much of a beating this cup takes.

These convenient watch gift ideas are an attractive reminder to keep track of time and ensure meetings don’t go over schedule.
16. Dry Erase Board
No startup or entrepreneur's office is complete without a dry erase board. Late night brainstorming and Business Model Canvas sessions are born here. I see a lot of dinky sized ones online but that doesn't give you much space so I'm recommending the 48" wide version.
This white board comes with a magnetic surface and detachable marker tray. Aluminum frame and ABS plastic corners for safety.
17. Portable Phone Charger
One of the worst things that can happen to a busy entrepreneur is a dead phone. So, portable phone chargers with built-in cables are thoughtful gifts that might be a veritable lifesaver for busy professionals wanting to save the battery life of their devices.
The myCharge Portable Charger has an excellent charge compared to standard options. What’s more, it provides backup power, so new business owners never have to worry about missing a call.
18. Desk Zen Garden
The business world (aka your co-founder) can be stressful at times, so this desk Zen garden could be a welcome business warming gift to remind the receiver to take a moment to themselves amidst their busy work day.
It can be hard to find a grand opening gift for owners of new businesses, but this Zen garden adds a personal touch to a new office. This gift features a small air plant and chunks of pink Himalayan salt atop soft white sand for a peaceful display that suits any office style.
19. Portable Coffee Makers
Want to celebrate with a new business owner? Well, you can’t go wrong with some coffee swag. Some of the best gifts for entrepreneurs are portable coffee makers like AeroPress or a French press coffee cup.
It’s no secret that founders and entrepreneurs have busy days and late nights, so having a convenient way to take a coffee break is a gift that’s bigger than it may seem. AeroPress uses gravity to make a perfect brew, while the portable French press lets you make (and take) coffee on the go in an attractive insulated mug.
20. Ultra Wide Screen Monitors (49")
OK I have to throw in a big one. There's no such thing as too much screen real estate when you are working long hours. I've researched the best ultra wide screens out there and here are my top picks:
Great for gaming and work:
Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ 49” Curved Gaming FreeSync Monitor 144Hz Dual Full HD HDR Eye Care with DP HDMI Black
4.4 out of 5 stars 614 ratings
Also just as good for gaming and work:
SAMSUNG CJ890 Series 49-Inch Ultrawide QHD (3840×1080) Computer Monitor, 144Hz, Curved, HDMI, USB-C, Height Adjustable Stand, 3 Yr WRNTY (LC49J890DKNXZA)
4.3 out of 5 stars 833 ratings
And my TOP TOP PICK:
This LG provides more resolution, which frankly you really need when you are going that wide. HOWEVER, this is strictly a work monitor because the refresh rate isn’t fast enough for smooth motion gaming.
LG 49WL95C-WY 32:9 UltraWide Monitor 49″ Dual DQHD (5120 x 1440) Curved IPS Display, HDR10, USB Type-C with 85W PD, sRGB 99% Color Gamut, Height/Swivel/Tilt Adjustable Stand – Black and Silver
