Home office gift: The best care package ideas for colleagues

Homeoffice-Geschenk: Die besten Carepaket Ideen für Kolleginnen und Mitarbeiter
Are you looking for a care package for your colleagues or employees? You want to say "thank you" to your team with a small gift after such a long time in the home office? Then we have several ideas for you! Spoilers: most contain chocolate ;-)

What is a care package?

To get straight to the point: after the Second World War, a care package was a food package for the needy in emergencies . Fortunately, the current situation of your teams and employees cannot be compared to this. What has remained the same, however, is the idea of ​​the care package: food still belongs in a good care package today.

What is included in the care package for colleagues?

Who would have thought? Even back then, chocolate was a natural part of the care package. We therefore find it obvious to focus the content of the home office gift on this even today. Despite everything, you should of course think above all about what your team members or colleagues would be happy about. Did you perhaps have a favorite snack in the office? Then of course this should not be missing in the care package! Could there be intolerances, are there many vegans or potentially pregnant women in the team? Then we would be back to the chocolate, ;-) because: compared to many other foods, really good dark chocolate is vegan, alcohol-free and consists of only a few ingredients. So a chocolate box with dark chocolate is not only incredibly delicious, but also a good, inclusive gift!

Chocolate Care: the real (chocolaty) deal!

As already mentioned, chocolate is a basic ingredient in every care package. And from our point of view, the care package doesn't need much more ;-). Whether it's a chocolate tasting box , a small present with a chocolate gift box or chocolate in a different condition, for example as cocoa beans , cocoa nibs or as a Kumasi cocoa fruit spritzer . There are no limits to creativity when putting together a really good home office gift. And so it is not surprising that SAP approached us to put together a really nice package! All project team members were surprised with a small box of cocoa beans and kumasi in the home office! This makes working from home twice as fun. The boxes were then opened in a joint virtual event and the delicacies were tasted together.

Why is the home office gift a good idea, especially now?

Whether it's an exciting start-up phase, a medium-sized company or a long-established organization: the challenges of the past and upcoming months have demanded a lot from all employees! While working from home has its perks, it has mostly created new hurdles for most. From childcare to non-existent workrooms to using your own devices. One thing is certain: employees had to do a great deal and often even contribute their own resources in order to be able to work from home at all.
That's why it's more important than ever to say thank you to your colleagues! And from our point of view, a well-filled care package as a home office gift is the ideal way to say thank you. Last but not least, care packages for employees not only ensure a good mood and motivation! Studies show that positive feedback can contribute in particular to increasing employee motivation. And what better way to express positive feedback than with chocolate ;-) ?

It's a wrap: Frequently asked questions about care packages and home office gifts

What is a good home office gift for employees?

A home office gift for employees - often also called a care package - is a compilation of gifts intended to show the recipient that you care about them and are interested in their well-being. A good home office gift is best when it cheers up co-workers, brings them together through a physical element and has a personal touch. The gift can then be opened individually by everyone in the home office or a joint virtual unboxing event is held. In both cases, a good care package helps to increase employee motivation!

What can I send my remote team to the home office?

From our point of view there is only one logical answer to this question :-) . We believe that every care package should contain chocolate. Or - even better - it's a whole chocolate box. Supplemented by an exciting book , a really good Bordeaux wine or a bottle of cocoa fruit juice . With a personal note, the home office gift is perfect!

Where can I find a good provider of care packages or home office gifts?

How nice that you ask ;-) . Click here and get in touch with us! We look forward to hearing from you!

How much should a home office gift or care package cost?

Of course, you could also give your employees a USB stick or ballpoint pen. But honestly, who should be happy about something like that? A reasonable and, above all, fair and sustainably produced care package also has its price. The good thing? Your teams will see the difference and will appreciate it if you take a closer look at the package. It doesn't matter whether it's chocolate, coffee or whatever you fancy. Fair and sustainable products have their price. So you probably won't find a really good home office gift for less than €15-20. Of course, there are no upper limits anyway. From our experience, however, €150 is usually not exceeded if there are no high-level recipients.

Can Theyo packages also be personalized, eg with a company logo?

Sure, of course! Depending on the size and scope, we offer different personalization options. Simply contact us, choose a suitable home office gift and our chocolate experts will be happy to advise you on personalization.

How many care packages or home office gifts can you order from Theyo?

You can order care packages for colleagues in large and small quantities. Basically you can of course order smaller quantities directly from us in the chocolate shop . But if you want to make your whole team happy, then please write to us beforehand. You can then send us the collected addresses and together we can see which combination suits you best. We look forward to hearing from you.
