5 Top Gifts for Remote Hires in 2020

Due to COVID-19, many organizations have switched to a work from home system for many months now. While this may be easy for older employees to adjust to, new recruits that have never stepped foot in your office probably feel very disconnected.

It’s the job of an employer and the team to make remote employees feel welcomed in the organization. Sending over some gifts to make working from home more comfortable is a great way to start.

Here are some top corporate gifts for remote hires in 2020:

Reusable water bottle

It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day, no matter how busy we get. Dehydration can also affect productivity levels among employees. When working desk jobs, it’s easy to forget to drink water since you’re less likely to feel thirsty. Get your employees reusable water bottles to reduce their use of single-use plastic and encourage them to stay hydrated.

Reusable coffee mug

Most employees can’t start their workday before getting a cup of coffee. Caffeine can help fuel their day and get them ready for a busy day at work. Your employee welcoming kit should also include a reusable coffee mug so that they can recreate the same effect at home. Travel coffee mugs are made to keep the beverage warm for a longer period, making it a better alternative than a regular mug.

Recycled cardboard folder with a pen

Who doesn’t love some new stationery to work with? Having the right stationery can motivate employees to get to work and it can help them stay organized too. A folder and pen with the company logo is a great welcoming gift that can make new employees feel at home. Our recycled cardboard folder and pen are made of recycled materials and are plastic-free too.

Bamboo flash drive

A flash drive is always handy, especially when working remotely. Employees can carry important documents along with them wherever needed and can use it to create backups. Our bamboo flash drive is the perfect welcome token, it’s made sustainably and is effective too.


With working from home, we tend to lose track of the days. Make it easier for new employees to stay on top of meeting schedules and deadlines by providing a desktop calendar they can use specifically for work. Have your company logo, company facts, and amazing pictures printed onto these calendars as they double as desktop décor too!
