Working from home is again the ‘norm’ for most office workers across the UK having entered our third national lockdown last week on the 6th January 2021. Spending working hours alone at home is something many business professionals are now having to face. Even for those who have been wfh since the first Covid-19 lockdown last March, isolated working after a Christmas break and with short dark days is not always easy. On top of that some have to home school! And so, keeping up morale and making sure your team are as comfortable as possible is of paramount importance.
One way to keep your colleagues and customers motivated and feeling appreciated whilst working from home is with corporate desktop gifts. A branded gift with your company logo and marketing message on, which makes wfh life that bit easier, is a great way to show you care. From branded stationery, desktop items and techy gadgets, to branded mugs, coasters,clothing to keep warm – we can help you to chose the perfect branded gift.
You may want to make your corporate gift even more engaging with items that can be personalised with the receivers name on. We are able to offer a selection of business gifts that can be sent directly to individual addresses – meaning it frees up your time having to organise and implement posting the items out. Plus we can provide a number of branded items with an antibacterial coating on to help limit the spread of germs.
Our top 15 corporate gifts that will make working from home life easier:
For when you need a bit of fresh air to break up the day, a branded travel mug (as well as being enjoyed at the desk) can be taken with you on the go. This smart black rubberised travel mug engraved with your branding will catch eyes as well as being kept for years to come.
Remembering to keep hydrated whilst working from home alone can be hard – and it is so good for our health and wellbeing. One way to help remind your team mates and customers is with a branded drinks bottle. You can easily include set amounts to drink by certain times of the day in the design like we did in our Steel City bottle below.
Video calls are the new form of communicating during lockdown times and so having the right equipment will make meetings go much smoother. Quality branded headphones or ear buds will not only improve the sound quality of calls but can be used to block out other home distractions! We particularly like these eco friendly promotional headphones made from Wheatstraw with hands free option and build in FM radio function.
Similarly, a decent Bluetooth speaker can help sound quality when initiating a conference call with several people. We thought we would share this particular multi-functional promotional BT speaker which is also a desk lamp and allows you to charge your phone at the same time!
Sticking with the tech theme – branded charging cables are a high perceived value offering which is bound to impress. With us all consuming so much virtually right now our devices are needing to be charged more and more. A handy promotional charging cable is useful and small to post too.
If you have been working from home since March, it is likely that your stationery supply has needed to be topped up. By gifting corporate stationery – not only will you be illustrating your support for your colleagues and raising morale, but you will be providing a consistent brand image on any photos shared on social media or when at a video meeting with clients! Examples of branded stationery:
A great way to feel in control and on top of our schedule is with a branded calendar. Be it a desktop Calenderpod like the one below which features sticky notes and coloured index tabs or a branded wall calendar.
You can even brand a mouse and mousemat to add a touch of corporate pride to your colleagues home desktop. Or act as a reminder of your services or products to your customers. There is also the option of an antibacterial coating to the below branded mousemat.
