Great Stocking Stuffers for Private Investigators
1) Business Cards
Whether he or she is a seasoned professional or new to the field of investigations, business cards are a must. Not only do they demonstrate professionalism, but they also provide a quick way for clients and colleagues to get in touch. Be sure to list the investigator’s title, license number, agency (if applicable), website and all relevant contact information on the card.
2) Smartphone or Tablet
Although expensive, a smartphone or tablet can serve as a worthwhile investment. A Private Investigator will be able to use the smartphone or tablet to capture and store photos, organize documents and store important notes from the investigation. With a smart phone, it’s easy to contact other investigators working the case or check in with clients for additional up-to-date information.
3) Subscription to PI Magazine
What’s better than a gift that keeps on giving? It’s especially wonderful when the gift arrives at the doorstep every month. If he or she doesn’t already have one, the Private Investigator in your life will surely appreciate a subscription to PI Magazine. Digital subscriptions are also available.
4) State Association Dues
State associations, like The Florida Association of Private Investigators, Inc. (FAPI) or the Georgia Association of Professional Private Investigators, Inc. (GAPPI) allow investigators to network with one another and keep up with industry trends. Many offer investigators a range of benefits, including a place to share referrals, questions, sources of information and more in a friendly, professional atmosphere. Check your state association for more information.
In our digital world, it’s important to have an established online presence. If he or she doesn’t already have one, then why not consider gifting your Private Investigator a website? In many ways, a website serves as a digital business card. In fact, it takes it one step further by providing an opportunity for potential clients and employers to discover you (or the PI in your life) online.
Arguably the best investment any professional can make is continued education. The National Investigative Training Academy, Inc. (NITA), an online provider of state-approved Private Investigator training classes, offers a variety of resources that can help you decide if private investigation would be a positive career choice.
