medium_3134432078 Time is running out to get the perfect holiday gift for the entrepreneur in your life. Don’t worry. We’re here to help! This week’s Friday Five provides five hot gift ideas for the entrepreneur in your life.

1) A Tablet

There are a number of tablets on the market this holiday season. In fact, it could be argued there’s something for everyone! Because there’s such an extensive selection available, it’s important to consider the needs of the person who’ll be using it. Here are three of our favorites:

iPad Air (Starting at $499)

Google Nexus 7 (Starting at $299)

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 ($899) and Type Cover keyboard ($130)

2) A Smartphone

As with tablets, smartphone options are abundant. With so many to pick from, it can be a bit overwhelming to make a final decision. If your purchasing a smartphone for someone who will use it for business, then it’s important to select one with the right tools. Here are two of our favorites:

Apple iPhone 5S

If the person you’re purchasing a smartphone for is an Apple user, it’s probably a good idea to pick up the new iPhone 5S. The newest version of the iPhone has a 64-bit processor, Touch ID fingerprint scanner and all the apps and capabilities that iPhone users have become accustomed to.


This is one of those larger smartphones, with a 5.2-inch, 1920 x 1080 display. Some of its more unique features include placement of the power and volume control keys on the back of the phone. Of course the LG G2 comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, an infrared port and 4G LTE.

3) Wearable Tech

If the entrepreneur in your life is into having the latest, greatest, coolest technology, then wearable tech will make the perfect gift. And, surprisingly, there’s a lot to pick from. Google Glass and smartwatches just a few of the cool new technologies available for gifting in 2013. If you’re looking for a gift that wows, then consider one of these cool new pieces of technology.

4) For the Entrepreneur on the Go

Bose SoundLink Mini ($199)

Speakers are all the rage this year. And, there’s a lot to choose from. Portable speakers make a great gift for the business traveler because they can be taken almost anywhere and stream wirelessly from any smartphone. The Bose SoundLink Mini has been touted for having excellent sound quality for a reasonable price.

ASUS MB168 +

Dual monitors can be extremely useful in the office. But entrepreneurs on the go have traditionally had to forgo dual monitors when traveling. Not anymore! The ASUS MB 168+ is a 15.6-inch portable monitor weighing only 1.6 lbs. This portable offers a sharp image for those workers on the go!

iPad Mini Retina

2048 x 1536-pixel screen in 7.9-inch design
64-bit A7 processor
11-hour battery life

5) An iTunes Gift Card

Technology is always a great gift. What makes your tech gift even better? Gift cards to purchase the latest and greatest apps! If your new gift runs apps, be sure to also include a gift card.

And if your giftee is a RingCentral customer, be sure to tell him or her about the free RingCentral app for iOS and Android. It can send and receive faxes, make calls, schedule conferences and a lot more.
