We started our search for holiday gifts and digital stocking stuffers with one simple question: What gadgets would be both FUN and FUNCTIONAL for the busy marcom professional in this season of giving? The result: You won’t find items on this list designed to help you be “more productive” for clients. Nope. You won’t find tools to help you convert more sales or listen to social media conversations more efficiently. Not really. We already know you want a new iPad. You might find that here—but it’s a supercharged version, we promise.
In our quest for practical yet enjoyable gift ideas, we found goodies that can help keep you physically fit while on the road, that can protect your data while working at a remote coffee shop, and that can help you leap vast mountains of reading material in a single bound. Consider this your holiday wish list of FUNctional gifts—and share it with your personal Santa, boss, client or co-worker. If you’ve been good, maybe you’ll get your favorite one!
