Cloudinary’s 2019 Holiday Gift Guide

Tis the season for gift guides, wish lists and hopeful letters to Santa.

Among the things that make Cloudinary such a great place to work are all the amazing brands we get to call our customers. Should there ever be a rule that we exclusively shop, read and rely on our more than 6,000 customers, it'd be an easy one to follow.

From Everlane to Under Armour, Allbirds to Bombas, many of us are often, literally, head-to-toe Cloudinary customers. And when it comes to styling our homes, staying well, buying tickets, booking travel, and watching NBA replays, we rely on brands like Apartment Therapy, mindbodygreen, StubHub, lastminute.com, Bleacher Report, and many others.

So, given all that experience with many of the world’s top brands, we thought it would be fun to present our own Holiday Gift Guide. Here are a few recommendations in case you still have shopping to do:

Zig Jacket Me- The Zig jacket by Sézane would be a dream, but the more sensible side of me covets the Jack sneaker, in ecru or gold. Surprise me, Santa!
Bombas Socks Olga Vinokurova, Designer- Bombas Mother-Toddler Sesame Street Gift Boxes. These are so cute and artsy (reminds me of Kandinsky paintings), and the fact that you can do a mother-toddler combo (yes, I'm a toddler's mom)? I'm sold!
Puma Sneakers Sanjay Sarathy, VP Marketing- I've just purchased myself a pair of Puma Smash sneakers, in black suede of course. I do like my baseball caps.
Ted Baker Purse Marissa Masangcay, Technical Marketing- Love this Ted Baker necklace and cuff combo. Here is a great holiday purse that will also go well for the upcoming Valentines day. You can stay warm in style with these fur trimmed gloves. Here is an on trend and reversible leather strapped watch.

Of course you can’t go wrong with Everlane’s cashmere scarf, especially in a fun color. Be comfy chic in these editor boots. And here’s a great boot for everyday.

We hope this helps if you’re stuck and in need of some last minute ideas. Happy giving!

And may the joy of the season carry you into a safe and prosperous New Year.

Automatically Translating Videos for an International Audience

No matter your business focus—public service, B2B integration, recruitment—multimedia, in particular video, is remarkably effective in communicating with the audience. Before, making video accessible to diverse viewers involved tasks galore, such as eliciting the service of production studios to manually dub, transcribe, and add subtitles.
