1: Fuel Their Fitness Goals
It’s no secret that fitness is important not just to our physical health, but also our mental wellbeing, and it can be hard to keep up with your goals next to a demanding job. Why not show them some appreciation for both their work and their efforts and help them to stay active? Staying physically and mentally well will not only keep them feeling productive at work but will show them that you value their downtime and personal wellbeing. Whether they have been looking for some new gear, the latest gadgets, or some new camping gear for weekend adventures, they will be spoilt for choice with a Decathlon voucher or a Sports Direct voucher. Or perhaps an Adidas voucher could allow them to get just the right treat to motivate themselves to keep going and reach their fitness goals!?
2: Liven Up Their Lunch
When you are not joining your colleagues for lunch in the office, it can often feel a bit dull and lonely to take your break, so getting your remote workers a treat for lunch could be just what they need to brighten up their day and get them out of the house. You can’t go wrong with our Greggs gift cards, as they have a lunch treat for everyone! Whether they fancy a sweet pick-me-up, want to treat themselves to a seriously irresistible Steak Bake or Greggs sausage roll, or want to opt for a healthy salad, whatever their preference Greggs have got them covered. Don’t forget, they also have a brand new Greggs vegan range for those staff members with dietary requirements.
Alternatively, you could consider getting them a Caffè Nero gift card, or a Starbucks gift card to treat them to their caffeine fix. They’re sure to appreciate a cuppa after a busy day. You’d be hard pushed to find a staff member who wouldn’t be grateful for a delicious boost like this, and with our gifts vouchers ready to send in just a few clicks, they make the perfect last-minute treat, too.
3: Treat Them To Tech
Of course, it is our technical equipment that keeps us connected from afar, even more so when working remotely. Perhaps, it would make your employee’s life a little easier, if they could treat themselves to a new headset, a bluetooth speaker, or a new external storage device? A Currys voucher would go a long way towards such a useful gift.
With their wide range of offers, another contender could be one of our Amazon gift cards, great for if you want to equip them with the latest and greatest tech fast. Keep them feeling connected and immersed in office life, it’s sure to keep their morale up communicating with their colleagues and being able to utilise the latest tech will help them to effectively reach their goals at home too.
4: Perk Up Their Place
When you’re working from home, it is important to make the most of the spaces designated for working and free time. Why not send them an Argos voucher? They’ll be able to equip themselves with everything from stationery to ergonomic office chairs and roomy desks, so they can create a comfortable office space at home that will support their bodies as they work - no more slumping on uncomfortable sofas! A dedicated space for them to work will help them to feel more productive too and set apart their home life from their work life.
Alternatively, why not consider sending them one of our HomeSense vouchers instead? They can choose to spend their credit on their work space or even their personal space ready for when they log off. Sometimes a new and trendy-looking desk lamp, some serene house plants, or just a calming scented candle can make all the difference to a home or workspace. Whatever they might be looking for, at Homesense they are sure to find a great fit.
5: Evening Entertainment
Sometimes, the best reward for a hard day’s work is getting out and about and being given the chance to let their hair down. If you were considering bulk buying gifts for staff that work from home, why not send them all Ticketmaster vouchers? A team night out might just allow them to share a great event together and grow as a team at the same time. From concerts to comedy and musicals, your employees are sure to discover something they all like. Theatre Tokens could also be a great gift which keeps on giving when they enjoy a memorable evening in the West End or at their local theatre.
