The last year has created an office working dynamic that we have never seen before. With everyone isolated in their own homes, it can be really tough to show true appreciation for your coworkers. Prove that you see their hard work by giving everyone a small gift.
Nearly every office worker around the world enjoys a nice drink while they are sitting at their desk. This beverage is often drunk from a special container to help maintain the desired temperature and prevent spills. Show appreciation for your coworkers by getting everyone a piece of custom drinkware featuring the company's logo. Seeing the company logo every day as they take a drink will really help the employees know they are appreciated.
Box of Tea or Coffee
If you are going to get your coworker a cup with the company logo, then you might as well get them some tea or coffee to go with the drinkware. There are plenty of nice box sets of gourmet tea and coffee available to purchase that make perfect gifts. They will be overjoyed to start the work day with a delicious drink every morning. It is important to make sure your coworker is an avid tea or coffee drinker before sending this gift. You do not want to get them something they will not use.
Gift cards are one of the most popular gift options because they allow the recipient to get whatever they want. You never have to worry about messing up the gift. It is best to personalize the gift card by getting one from your coworker's favorite restaurant or boutique store. If you do not know this information, then opt for a more generalized gift card to a large retail store, chain restaurant or the local grocery store.
A t-shirt has been the standard uniform for most office workers over the last year. There is simply no incentive to dress up when working from home unless there is an important video conference. Help add to your coworker's new work uniform by giving them a nice t-shirt. Just like the gift card, the shirt will mean a lot more if you take the time to personalize the gift. Get a shirt with the logo of their favorite band, movie franchise or sports team.
Portable Standing Desk
Doctors have all agreed that sitting for long periods of time can be just as dangerous to your health as smoking. Unfortunately, everyone has adapted a far more sedentary lifestyle while working from home. There is no reason to leave the desk to talk to a friend or pass an important document when you are in a home office. A portable standing desk is a great way to avoid sitting all day while working from a comfortable position.
Your coworkers need recognition for their hard work now more than ever before. There is no better way to reward the sacrifice and dedication of your workers than by sending them a special gift.
