Sales reps travel a lot for work. The next time they travel, instead of them having to lug around their luggage, let their luggage carry them around. The Modobag is a revolutionary piece of motorized carry-on luggage. The bag can travel up to 6 miles on a single charge, at 8 miles an hour. It is lightweight, and can easily convert from motor to pull-behind use. It even comes with dual USB charging ports to charge mobile phones/tablets on-the-go and optional GPRS tracking. Gift one of these to your favorite sales rep and they’ll effortlessly get to all of their destinations.
If your favorite sales rep is a little old-school and loves the classic pen and paper experience, the Kickstarter funded Rocketbook Everlast might just be the perfect gift for them. Although it feels like a traditional notebook, the Everlast is endlessly reusable and connected to all popular cloud services.
How does the Everlast work? When you write on the Everlast notebook using any pen from the Pilot Frixion line, your writing sticks to the pages like regular paper. But add a drop of water, and the pages erase like magic making it endlessly reusable.
Being a sales rep is be a demanding job. Help your favorite sales rep de-stress with a Headspace subscription. Headspace provides 100+ guided meditation lessons which can be easily accessed from smartphones or desktops. Each session clocks in at approximately 10 minutes, making it easy for your favorite sales reps to incorporate some mindfulness into their daily routine.
Sales reps are often hard-pressed for time. However, most sales reps also need to be avid readers in order to stay on top of their game. Thankfully, there’s an app to help them out of that catch-22 situation. Blinkist provides easy-to-digest, 15-minute summaries of over 2,500 books. Blinkist also comes with a handy Evernote integration, making it easy to take quick notes on-the-go.
LinkedIn has revolutionized the way over 500 million business people from 200+ countries connect with one another, making it an incredibly valuable resource for sales reps. While LinkedIn can be used for social selling to some degree of success, LinkedIn Sales Navigator offers many more filters and tools that will allow sales reps to further narrow their search, build the perfect list of customers and greatly increase their chances of conversion. Gift your favorite sales rep a LinkedIn Sales Navigator subscription and watch them become a social selling rockstar.
For field sales reps, Uber is a godsend. In the past, field sales reps may have had to rely on rental cars, public transport or hail a cab to get around. With Uber, a cab ride is just a few taps of a smartphone away, ensuring that sales reps arrive cool, calm, composed, and well-in-time for onsite meetings.
Fun fact: The Freshsales mobile apps for iOS and Android integrate with Uber allowing you to book a cab to your meeting location right from within Freshsales.
If your favorite sales rep is a standing desk aficionado, this little floor mat will be their new best friend. Standing desks became the rage in 2013 after studies on the health risks of sitting all day were popularized. But standing for hours at a time can really hurt your feet, and that’s where a nice floor mat makes a HUGE difference. By reducing discomfort, these anti-fatigue mats allow one to stand longer and with vastly more comfort compared to a carpet or bare floor. And by doing that, these anti-fatigue mats improve productivity at work or at home.
For a sales rep, looking smart, fashionable and clean is as important in sales as his/her ability to influence. That’s where a Trunk Club subscription comes in handy. A Trunk Club subscription pairs a recipient with a stylist, who will pick out their new threads. The subscription allows you to preview outfits and styles before you accept them and then they’re shipped right to your door—looking dapper has never been this easy.
Coffee is only for closers, said Alec Baldwin in the iconic movie, Glengarry Glen Ross. Caffeine is pretty much the fuel of any sales office, so what’s better than a cup of coffee? The ability to prevent your favorite brew from cooling-off too soon. Gift your favorite closer a coffee mug warmer, and watch them keep their coffee warm and make those leads warmer.
Being a good sales rep involves the ability to multi-task. One of the consequences of this ability to multi-task is that they may tend to let smaller things slip through the cracks, quite literally. The Tile is an attempt to solve some of those woes. These nifty Bluetooth-enabled tiles are trackers that can be hooked on to key rings, stuck on mobiles, or placed in purses. The companion Tile app can be downloaded on to a smartphone allowing one to quickly navigate and find their misplaced items.
The Fitbit Versa is one of the best fitness trackers on the market right now. Add a svelte design, a heart rate monitor and smartwatch features and you have the perfect gift for sales reps to stay fit and help with those new year’s resolutions.
With each passing year, sales reps are expected to beat their old records and quotas. Help them crush their sales quotas in 2019 with the gift of the perfect CRM software—Freshsales. An all-in-one, feature-packed sales CRM software built to help attract, convert, close, and nurture leads.
These are a few gift ideas you can’t go wrong with for the sales rep in your life. They’ll bring a smile to their face during this holiday season, and let them ring in the new year with a smile — and some cool stuff to make life on the road more fun!
