Nov 22, 2022 | By Jackie Lipinski


Each year the Do You Convert team puts together a Holiday Gift Guide for New Home Marketers and OSCs in the home building industry. This year we also asked fellow industry peers their thoughts on the best gifts including all things books, tech items, office, and miscellaneous things they love and would recommend. This list is your go-to shopping guide this holiday season whether you’re looking for gifts for yourself or for inspiration for a colleague.

We hope you all have a happy and healthy holiday season. Enjoy!

Apps


Stretch Minder

I have been using the Stretch Minder App for over a month now, and I love it! It reminds you every hour to take a break, stretch, breathe, or go for a walk. You can set how short or long of a break you want, and what activity you want to do. It’s a good reminder to get up from my desk and take a short break to reset and refocus.

This Speechify app converts text to speech. It's wonderful for proofreading, but it could also be used to read articles, docs, emails, pdfs, etc.

Miscellaneous Office Items



Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series

My husband has a Secret Lab gaming chair, which I enjoyed using during the pandemic. When it came time to purchase a chair for my home office, I knew I wanted to get my own Secret Lab chair in my favorite color - teal. Although this chair is made for gamers, it is a great chair to use for work too! These chairs are ergonomic, have great lumbar support to help your posture, and they are very comfortable. They also come in a wide variety of designs and sizes to fit your unique style and needs!
