As employers begin to bring employees back to the office, we're seeing companies recognizing the change in routine this represents for their team members and they're wanting to do something to ease the transition back to office life. And even if they're remaining remote and not going back to the office any time soon (or ever), they're definitely paying a lot closer attention to things like employee morale, employee retention, and employee recruitment, and even employee on-boarding. From what we're seeing, they're strategically using gifting as a way of unifying the team and making everyone feel appreciated.

Here are some gift ideas for back-to-the-office and employee appreciation in general. 

Seize the Day

Know someone looking to establish their ideal morning routine? Our signature 'Seize the Day' gift box is just the solution! They'll indulge in Stumptown small batch house blend coffee or Jasmine green tea with honey in a teak tumbler. While sipping on a hot drink, they can take a few moments to set their top priorities for the day by using their new daily task post-it notes by Appointed. After the coffee is done, they can hop in the shower and get energized with their aromatic coffee body scrub. Perfect for virtual event gifts, client appreciation, college care packages, and even a gift for your overachieving family and friends.

Back to the Office

What for a lot of people could potentially represent a stressful transition back to the office when they've been working from home for a year and a half, we intentionally curated this gift box to bring a smile to employees' faces as they adjust to being back. Office essentials including sanitizing desk wipes, daily task planners, an energy drink, a luxe gender neutral Shinola journal, and a desk sized grow kit are just a few of the surprises that await them. While we can absolutely see this being used to celebrate back-to-the-office, it can also be used for virtual event welcome gifts and employee appreciation gifts for team members working at home and finding themselves in need of a desk makeover!

Digital Detox

Relaxed and happy employees are good employees which is why our Digital Detox curated gift box is the perfect way to help even the most device-addicted team members take a much-needed step back from the digital space to reconnect with themselves, with others, and the world around them. A combination of self-care and wellness items with stylish items for the most relaxing of workspaces are the perfect cure for burnout.

Rise & Grind

This gift set was intentionally designed to make the daily grind a whole lot more enjoyable. We envisioned employees starting their morning with coffee and daily task planning along with items to wind down at the end of the day. Think: green tea, a coffee infused body scrub, and some journaling before bed. The perfect combination of relaxation and productivity!

Whether transitioning back to working at the office or continuing to work from, by now, anyone can use a desk refresh! Office essential including electronic cleansing wipes, daily task planners, a mini Shinola notebook, and an energy drink are just a few of the surprises that await employees!
