Working from home certainly has its perks—wearing comfy clothes, getting extra pet snuggles throughout the day, and having easy access to the fridge are just a few of the WFH benefits we’ve all been enjoying. But even if the PJs-all-day look is right up your alley, working from home isn’t always easy, and many of us are still adjusting to this new way of life.
That’s where you come in, fearless team leader. How do you show your employees that you care when your interactions are limited to Zoom calls? The answer is easy: thoughtful gifts that come from a place of appreciation.
Cue InTandem. We’re experts at making swag count and making it “wow.” Your employees have journeyed through quite the year. We’re here to help you show them that although the workday may look a little different, they’re still valued members of your team. So without further ado, here are seven work-from-home gifts that they’re sure to love.
1. Desktop Vacuum
We’ve all been there… the impromptu Zoom meeting during lunch hour. The result? A pile of crumbs dusting your workspace. Say hello to Crumbee™, the miniature vacuum that can tackle any mess. Even those potato chips that have taken up residence in your keyboard.
2. Smart Writing Set
If you happen to know an employee who has a thing for errant post-its, look no further. Meet the next generation of notetaking with Moleskine’s Paper Tablet. With the help of the companion app, notes are effortlessly translated from journal to screen. Your employee’s life just got easier.
3. Cozy Blanket
The home “office” can mean many things this year: a corner in the garage, the garden shed, or even the backyard deck. Throughout winter and into spring, these spaces may not be the most insulated. Although a chilly office is nothing new for most employees, this throw blanket certainly can’t hurt.
4. Charging Station
Whose workspace isn’t a mess of tangled cords? Even the most organized among us have found ourselves tripping over a rogue cord or dashing to an outlet mid-meeting to plug in. Enter The Docksy, a three-in-one charging solution that enables you to charge your smartwatch, earbuds, and iPhone. For your employees, a clear workspace means a clear mind.
5. Oversized Tumbler
Meetings on meetings? If your company is all too familiar with marathon zoom sessions, then this is the gift for your employees. When there’s no time to run to the kitchen, this 32-ounce tumbler will keep them going all day long. Seriously, it keeps drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. Plus, it’s vacuum-sealed to prevent spills. Especially important when IT happens to be remote.
6. Desk Cornhole Game
The office ping-pong table may be retired, but there’s still an opportunity to build morale with this desktop cornhole game. Set a timer and have a virtual round of play. It goes well with virtual happy hour if we do say so ourselves. Besides, what’s a better gift than bragging rights?
7. Upcycled Mini Backpack
Was your annual volunteering day put on hold this year? Find purpose in a gift that gives back. This mini backpack is made from six recycled PET bottles. Plus, for every backpack purchased, the National Forest Foundation will plant a tree. Your employees will look good and do good. How’s that for a win-win?
