31 Practical Corporate Gift Baskets For Employees Working From Home

Remote work has its fair share of challenges. While the new-age employees are using technology to coordinate and stay connected, being a part of a virtual team can lead to feelings of workplace isolation. Your employees may find it challenging to feel truly connected and valued in the hybrid office environment of today.

Engaging in practices that foster good relationships with the people who drive your business makes them feel appreciated for their work. And what could be a better way than giving nicely curated corporate gift baskets for employees working from home?

But…

Assembling gift baskets isn't exactly easy. There are professional boundaries you don’t want to cross but still make a lasting impression. To ensure your expressions of gratitude are meaningful and have an impact, we've hand-picked our top recommendations for the best corporate gift baskets.

In this article, we cover the best corporate gift baskets for employees working from home.

4. Healthy Gift Basket

Swap junk food with nutritious options with a healthy gift basket for employees working from home. 

Consider making a basket with organic treats (nuts and seeds, protein bars), an affordable fitness device (wearable, oxygen meter), scented candles, some fruits, and a gym subscription.

5. WFH Essentials

Thinking of gift options other than snacks and desserts? Look no further. 

A work-from-home essentials package containing headphones for noise cancellation which help them stay focused, blue-light computer glasses to prevent eye strain, and other desk accessories will make your employees feel cared for

7. Women’s Special Gift Basket

Women are a driving force in society. And what could be a better way to promote women's empowerment within your company than by gifting them a women’s special gift basket? 

You can add oil diffusers, a travel wallet, nail polish, and perhaps gift cards to Amazon or Target with other essentials to make them feel valued for their contribution.

8. Men’s Special Gift Basket
