With the holidays closing in, it’s the perfect time to show a little extra appreciation to the person who qualifies your leads: your SDR. Between navigating busy holiday schedules and fighting for valuable time with prospects, your SDR truly lays the foundation for growth and success, year after year.
We’ve rounded up 6 gifts for SDRs that are sure to brighten their day and ease their workload this holiday season. Whether your SDR is interested in growth and development or just needs a quick escape from the daily grind (or, most likely, both!), these gifts won’t disappoint.
A steady flow of leads is both a blessing and a curse for SDRs! While an abundance of leads is undoubtedly a great thing, it can become difficult to manage. Extend a helping hand to SDRs with a subscription to LeadIQ.
LeadIQ speeds up prospecting with a handy Chrome extension that captures leads as you browse. SDRs can stay on top of their leads, and integrated dashboards give the rest of the team and management visibility into what everyone is working on.
2. Mini Basketball Hoop
While we can’t guarantee the productivity of anyone using this gift during work hours, we can all agree that breaks are necessary. An over-the-door basketball hoop is a classic way to unwind between meetings, calls, or emails. From practicing a shot to settling a bet, a miniature basketball is sure to entertain.
3. Fluidstance balance board
Working from home means that we all have to seek creative solutions to stay active and healthy. Gifting your favorite SDR a Fluidstance balance board can break up an otherwise sedentary day of deskwork. It’s the perfect accessory to a sit-stand desk, but is a great activity in its own right.
SDRs can hit the balance board during calls or while answering emails. Or, if they prefer to keep work and play separate, they can use it while watching TV after work. Balance boards can help keep your SDRs active and comfortable without sacrificing productivity.

Fanatical Prospecting also includes winning techniques for creating persuasive, compelling emails and text messages that turn prospects into customers, something every SDR is sure to appreciate!
