Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Vendor Alley 2021 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again! Here are some great gift ideas for your favorite vendor in your life!

12′ 3 outlet extension cable

12 ft 3 Outlet Extension Cord. I don’t know about you but I always seem to find myself too far away from a wall outlet. Whether to charge my phone in a hotel room or my laptop when doing a presentation at a hotel suite. Rather than a bulky 6 outlet strip with only a 3-foot cable, I like to carry a twelve-foot cable with 3 outlets. It’s a lifesaver. You can get them almost anywhere. Here’s one from HomeDepot.

PlugBug Slim

Speaking of chargers, don’t you hate it when your big bulky charger outlet won’t fit behind the bedside table at home or on the road? Me too. So check this out. Perfect to throw in your carry-on bag. PlugBug Slim from Twelve South.

I love these phone mounts from Stage Ninja. They are great for holding your phone or tablet. I use them in my ’59 VW Bus (since it lacks a radio). But I found it so useful I bought a couple more. Great for long FaceTime convos with Mom or Grandma.

Stage Ninja

I know what you are going to say, $649 for a freaking carry-on suitcase. Yeah, yeah, I know. But god-damn the Briggs and Riley 22″ is a great spinner. So stop pulling your old Skyway carry on, forget the Away, ditch the last bag you bought a Costco and treat yo self!

Apple MacBook Pro

Leave that dongle in your pants. Apple’s new MacBook Pros bring back some of your favorite ports. So if you are due a refresh of your laptop and your CAPEX budget can handle it, get one! Magsafe, HDMI, and SSD ports, and with the super-fast M1 PRO and M1 MAX chipset you’ll be updating those excel sheets in no time. What’s not to love? The 14″ model would be my travel-friendly jam. How else are you gonna hit those crazy quotas?

The Art of the CMA

And what Vendor Alley Holiday Gift Guide would be complete without a book recommendation. And this year it’s easy, The Art of the CMA, by yours truly. Order today and I’ll even personalize and autograph it. Also free shipping. And did I mention that quantity discounts are available? Click here to start your order.
