One of my most popular blog posts last year was "Top 10 Gifts for Veterinary Social Media Lovers." Throughout the year, I met a few people in person who mentioned a product they loved and were still using! In honor of Black Friday (and Cyber Monday, and general holiday craziness right around the corner), I've updated the list with just a few tweaks.
I know these are good, because I actually own all of them! Some are fun, some are super handy, and some are downright essential. Whether these are gifts for a friend, colleague or yourself, they promise to make social media even more fun.
Happy holidays! -CD

1. Joby GripTight ONE Magnetic Impulse: $59.95
I loved this tripod so much I did a video review of using it in my clinic. The Joby GripTight ONE GP Magnetic Impulse is portable, flexible, super sturdy, and MAGNETIC! It holds my iPhone 7 plus just fine, and adjusts to fit any smartphone. It wraps around sink faucets, IV poles, sticks to metal window frames and exam tables, and goes wherever you want it to go. Best of all, it comes with a bluetooth wireless remote so you can snap pictures from afar or start your live video without that awkward lean in/giant finger footage. My number one favorite gadget this year, hands down! Check out my blog for the write up and/or the Facebook video review and see how I used it around our hospital! For whatever reason, this particular model is only available on Joby's website or at Best Buy, but you can find a similar Joby model on Amazon here- it also is magnetic and has the remote, but I suspect the smartphone adapter may not be as flexible.
