Gifting in the workplace: you asked, we answer! With Mother’s Day right around the corner (and Father's Day coming up!), we wanted to address your questions on how to gift in a tasteful and professional way in order to foster your personal relationships with colleagues in your office who are celebrating milestones outside of work. Read along to learn more about how we recommend gifting the amazing working bosses, clients, and colleagues in your life!
For the newly minted parent, freshly back from maternity/paternity leave:
Balancing work-life and parent-life is the name, so relaxation is the game! When you're welcoming back a parent you'll likely want to give the gift of relaxation - sending the message that you're excited to have them back while also letting them know you're here to help make the transition easy. Some of our favorite boxes include the WIND DOWN box, tried and true favorite PAMPER box, or mindful PAUSE box. With tasty treats, relaxing candles, mindful journals, and cozy extras, these boxes strike the perfect balance of personable but not overly personal - a tricky balance when gifting in the workplace.
For the new mom, dad or family:
Know a client or colleague that’s welcoming a new bundle of joy? Celebrate by sending them a box from our amazing collection of NEW MOM, NEW FAMILY, and NEW BABY BOY and GIRL boxes. Giving them something they can use to celebrate and improve their day-to-day as well as items they can use as a family, shows that you're in touch with the process and want to give them an experience they can look back on! That kind of positive bond will spark new business conversations and strengthen your current professional relationship even further.
