The holidays are almost here! As we approach the end of 2021, some teams in Australia are still managing the impacts of the pandemic and working remotely or in a hybrid arrangement, while others have started transitioning back to the office. This is a great opportunity to connect, recognise your team for their efforts this year and say ‘thanks’ with a gift. Here are our top 15 gift recommendations.
The benefits of gift-giving
A simple gift can make a big difference in your team’s happiness levels. According to research, dopamine is released when receiving and giving gifts. This dopamine interacts with our memory centres and can manifest a stronger bond between the giver and receiver.1 Studies have also shown that when people buy a gift for someone else, they experienced higher levels of happiness.2
Not sure what to buy for your team? We’ve put together a list of great gift ideas to say thanks for the year that was.
For the team of caffeine fiends
Australians love their coffee! Did you know three in four Australians enjoy at least one cup of coffee per day, and of those, 28% have three or more cups per day?3 Gift your team members their caffeine fix over the holiday break with our wide range of coffee and tea products to make any caffeine-lover happy.
For the team of tech-lovers
For the employee who loves tech, we have a range of products and accessories that can make great additions to their technology setup. Technology can also be a great gift for team members who could benefit from a better set-up to get things done.
For the team that likes to snack
Just like coffee, Australians appreciate a nice treat! In 2021, revenue in the confectionery and snacks segment in Australia amounted to $20,666m and is expected to grow annually by 2.97%.4 If you’re unsure about what to gift this Christmas, something nice to snack on is a good option.
