Are you struggling to think of gift ideas for the editorial professional in your life? Or are you a freelancer looking to drop some heavy hints about the presents you’d appreciate?

Seasonal gifts for editorial freelancers
1 December: Sit/stand desk
Good for the posture, the circulation and the concentration, standing desks have been a hot topic for a good few years now. There are various things to consider – your own physique, the space you have available, your budget, and your current set-up, to name but a few. And there are plenty of variations on the theme. If you’re lucky enough to know a cabinetmaker, you might decide to go for the customised option. Or you might prefer an add-on to your existing desk (see photo). A treadmill desk is another possibility.
If the thought of a visit to IKEA just before Christmas doesn’t fill you with total dread, it might be worth having a look at what they have on offer.
