WFH (Work From Home) Gift Ideas

WFH (Work From Home) Gift Ideas

Many business teams are now Team WFH (Work From Home). Even with zoom, Facebook Messenger, Slack or Facetime, it's still a challenge to keep team spirit alive. How do you let your remote team know 'we're all in it together?' 

Several of our clients decided to send gifts to their remote team but needed ideas. We listened. We've put together an idea catalog to help you see what's available. Pricing is not there on purpose as not only pricing, but availability changes by the day. Just let us know what you're interested in and we'll get you pricing. 

Shipping Gifts to Team Members' Homes

What you need to know about ordering items to ship directly to your team's homes: there are lots of options depending on budget. Typically there are drop ship fees on top of actual shipping costs. Many of the factories we use have waived or greatly reduced these charges. This means your budget can be spent on the gift, not on shipping. That's a good thing. 

And speaking of shipping: be sure to allow extra delivery time. All the major carriers are swamped. We're seeing many orders take extra days to be delivered. 

What about Custom Kits? 

Pick gifts you know your team will appreciate from our website. One client went with an insulated tumbler with straw and a journal made in the USA. These items come from two different factories. No problem. We had them printed with the clients logo + message and shipped to our facility to 'kit' and ship.

INSIDER TIP: order extras

INSIDER TIP #2: ask about custom shipping boxes. We can do that, too!

INSIDER TIP #3: consider weight of the items you choose. This will affect shipping costs. 

We make it easy. All we need are your team members' addresses.

What NOT to send...

A major tech player was trending on twitter for a gift box sent to those who had registered for an online conference. The boxes were shipped to their homes, of course. What was inside? One of the items was a bento type box with bamboo plastic utensils. Are we the only ones who found this strange? You're probably not six feet from the kitchen. Wouldn't you want to use real utensils? 

Another client was looking at lunch coolers, but was encouraged to consider something else. (Have to give one of his team credit as the suggestion was made you could use the coolers for grocery store trips!)

 

Gifts for Staff AND Others

In addition to purchasing gifts for staff, what about suppliers, neighbors or health care workers in your personal circle? There are lots of ideas in this gift catalog that could work for those gifts, too.
