Valentine’s Day is nearly here, everyone. If you have a budding entrepreneur in your life, forget the chocolates and forget the jewelry. Nothing says, “I love you,” like a gift that says, “I support your crazy business venture despite sleepless nights, too much post mates, and not enough caffeine to get me through this day.”

Even if you’re your own Valentine, this is a perfect opportunity to reward yourself for all that hard work (with a gift that will inspire you to work even harder).

It’s tough for any budding entrepreneurs to stay self-motivated — even when they’re passionate about their work. Trust me, I know, sis.

We have to make and balance our schedules, hold ourselves accountable, and handle any urgent problems that arise.

Here are eight go-to gifts for entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners who want to take their business to the next level.
