TO ENLIVEN WORK FROM HOME SPACES
As the number of days we’re spending working-at-home continues to tick with no clear end in sight, we can expect some remote workers to feel a lack of motivation. To cheer them up and help them beat work from home blues, we have some ideas –
Get your co-workers some green foliage and help them start their day with positivity and perhaps even help them breathe cleaner air. Having a plant on a work table helps with de-stressing and calming down. A great idea for a low maintenance indoor plant is an Anthurium. It is an easy-care houseplant and is sure to keep your co-worker happy all week!
Or if you think they’ll prefer an artificial plant, Kurrajong Farmhouse 8″ x 4.5″ Artificial Green Plant in Gray Cement Pot is a great choice. This life like plant looks natural and effortless to maintain.
Motivational Wall Poster
Christmas and New Year are perfect times to re-evaluate our goals for the coming year. Gift motivational wall posters to your team for an everyday dose of inspiration. We really like this poster and think that it would be a perfect addition to a home office.
Does anyone in your team work from a room with a north-facing window? Working in a dimly lit room is challenging, and you can help them brighten up their room with this sleek TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp. This lamp is gentle to the eyes and has a combination of 5 color modes and 7 brightness levels.
TO STAY ORGANIZED
Laptop Stand and Desk Organizers
We recommend the Soundance Laptop Stand, an Amazon bestseller, perfect for any laptop sized 10 to 15.6 inches. It is sturdy and portable, has a slim compact stand that elevates your laptop by 6-inches to a perfect eye level. This helps immensely with work fatigue and we are sure that this pocket-friendly gift will make one happy remote worker.
Another fantastic gift for a remote worker is a desktop organizer. We love this organizer by Jerry & Maggie – a wooden adjustable display shelf that looks classy, and perfect for placing office supplies, documents, books, and plants.
This is a useful gift for all those who multitask, juggling work on the laptop and taking video team calls on the phone. We read reviews and researched the best smartphone stand on Amazon and we think this smartphone stand is great value for your money. It’s stylish, super-sleek and has a non-skid rubber covered on the front.
Leather Desk Pad
This leather desk pad is a modern gift that protects your desk from scratches, and the occasional coffee spills we all encounter while working. This faux leather desk pad can also be used as a mouse pad, desk mat, and even a writing pad.
TO STAY FIT
If Fitbit fitness watches are a little hard on your wallet to gift to your remote team, then take a look at Amazfit Band 5 Fitness Tracker with Alexa Built-in. Apart from staying fit with this smart device, your remote team workers can also stay on top of their game with features like alarms, timers, creating shopping lists, checking the weather and controlling their smart home devices.
We know gifting treadmills and other heavy fitness equipment may not be suitable for everyone, especially if your co-workers live in small or shared apartments. This is why we found the Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper with Resistance Bands to be a great gift because it is compact and can fit in a corner of a room, without taking up too much space.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
The classic headphones like Jabra Evolve or Sony Bluetooth would cost you more than $200, so if you are looking for an affordable gifting option, VANKYO C751 Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones is a great choice. It’s just under $60 and provides clear hassle-free calls, long battery life, quick charging, and ergonomically designed to perfectly fit your head.
High-Speed Power Bank
Considering we work on multiple devices like the phone and tablet, a power bank is an extremely useful and practical gift. We highly recommend the INIU Portable slim and light-weight battery pack that offers 1.4x faster charging through UPower+ technology. Charge your phone, tablets, airpods, Bluetooth headphones, fitness trackers, smart watches etc.
FOR CAFFEINE LOVERS
The Keurig K-Slim Coffee Maker is a space-saving 5” coffee machine that fits perfectly on your countertop. This is the perfect gift for coffee lovers and especially for busy at-home workers who’d like a brew at the push of the button.
For tea lovers, The Love Bamboo Tea Tumbler with tea Strainer and Infuser is an exquisite gift for Christmas. Beautifully packaged, this is a double-walled tea diffuser for loose tea with strainer and infuser basket. It is made with 100% organic bamboo and stainless steel and a luxury quilted sleeve is included.
These were our top recommendations for affordable and wallet-friendly Christmas gifts for your remote team.
‘Tis is the season for mistletoe and feasts and some truly remarkable gifts! Merry Christmas from the Remote Global team!
