Sales can be one of the most demanding jobs out there, and salespeople are often tired and overworked. With the holidays just around the corner, show your appreciation with a gift.
Whether you’re looking to show your sales team that you value them, or simply want to get a gift for your favorite co-worker or that special salesperson in your life, there’s nothing better than giving them a meaningful present.
Our team at Kara is made up of former salespeople, so we were easily able to pinpoint what salespeople need (and want) the most. We pulled together our list of the top 15 gift ideas your favorite sales rep will love this holiday season.
1. Luxury bluetooth noise-canceling headphones
Any business professional would be thrilled with a pair of bluetooth headphones. Whether it’s blocking out those at-home distractions when working remotely or blocking out those chatty airplane seatmates when traveling to see a client, bluetooth headphones are always handy to have.
Depending on your budget, options range from $69-$600. Here at Kara, we love the Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones, or for something uber-chic, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay collection is both stylish and comfortable. The Bose Quiet Comfort line is especially popular among frequent travelers.
Lucas Debois, Sales Manager at Kara, said his top pick is the Apple airpods. “They are just amazingly convenient in the way they work and communicate with other Apple devices. The ease in which I can just switch devices automatically is just amazing. I have them in my pocket all day, every day.”
If you can’t decide between in-ear or over-ear, those who love a sleek design and prefer to carry around something smaller may prefer the in-ear fit. For those who don’t mind a bulkier pair and love comfort, opt for over-ear.
2. An Audible subscription
The new way to read is to listen. Audible is an online audiobook and podcast platform available on Amazon. A subscription allows users to purchase and stream audiobooks, podcasts, and other spoken content to their digital devices, making it easy for you to “read” while driving, while cleaning at home, or while exercising.
While nothing can replace the feel of a real book, Audible is the way of the future for busy sales reps who may not have the time to sit down for a few hours and read, but want to enjoy listening to content while on the go.
3. A beautiful pen
Writing is so vintage! Even though Kara is a tech company, we love the feeling of physically writing with a pen on paper — especially with a beautiful pen. A luxury pen is a gift that will last generations: a salesperson can keep it on their desk or in their pocket or bag, always ready to ink that important deal and sign with a flourish.
