What kind of gifts do you send your prospects to keep them hooked or to lean the deal your way?

I send swag, cards, unique table pieces or paperweights, pen stands, stationery, even sent a cologne once.

Swags are nice but it all depends on your targeted accounts. Employees of public companies are usually not allowed to receive swags of a certain amount and/or shared with the rest of the team/org

Yes, but I sell to CXOs. So I don't think there's a capping there

Tickets to events where they can bring significant others/kids/friend. (We have several box seats)

Let's them flex a bit with privilege. Cements that relationship with you. Also keep the taps open, candy/hot dogs/booze/meals.ย 

Creates a moment they won't forget.ย

How do you keep yourself motivated under pressure? Yes, I've heard of the usual responses like "finding your why" & "aligning yourself", etc. But I just want to get to the meat of the solution. Are there any specific tactics you guys use to keep yourselves motivated?
