Tech Lover

Potato Pirates love technology for Christmas gifts

1. Bluetooth Gadgets

We love wireless devices, especially colleagues who are attached to their gadgets almost all the time. Bluetooth-connected devices will be helpful for their daily life, especially when they are on the move.

The ideas for corporate gifts are endless, for example, earbuds that can be easily connected to any of their devices with Bluetooth technology, portable speaker, wireless charger, wireless mouse & keyboard, or a Bluetooth tracking tag. You can view some of our pick for Bluetooth gadgets:

Lypertek SoundFree S20

    One of the best affordable wireless earbuds you can find on market. Battery life is up to 8 hours and 48 hours with charging case. Bluetooth range is 49 feet or about 15 meters. This earbuds are also waterproof and have wireless charging feature, not bad for travel companion.

    Brydge W-Touch Wireless Precision Touchpad

    For tech lovers who mostly use PC at home, they might need touchpad for better precision and navigation. This could be one of the best option since the touch area is quite wide and equipped with multi-touch feature.

    2. Comfortable Cushions

    Other corporate gifts for employees who love technology are cushions! Believe it or not, it’s one of the must-have items for many people. Most of them are sitting in front of their devices for 8 to 12 hours (maybe more) a day, so they need a comfortable seat.

    There are several options of seat cushions or chair pads. You can also find specific cushions that are designed to help proper positioning and improve posture. These kinds of corporate gifts can boost employees' productivity as well as health. Kill two birds with one stone (just an expression, we love birds! Right, Parrot the Carrot?).

    If you're looking for the best comfortable cushions, you can check out some of recommendations from New York Times:

    Purple Double Seat Cushion 

      This cushion have two level of firmness to keep you supported and to stay cool during long hours of working on your desk. The unique gel-lattice construction makes the cushion able to hold its shape all day.

        3. Desk Vacuum & Organizer

        Having a lot of devices and accessories can make the desk messy and dirty after some time. A desk organizer is one of the great corporate gifts ideas for tech lovers. They can keep their desks organized and easily access everything.

        Another useful tool for tech lovers is a desk vacuum! A mini, handy, wireless vacuum can clean out narrow tiny spots, including keyboards. As we know, dust is no friend for keyboards and many other devices.

        4. Personal Fitness Equipment

        Some employees pay more attention to a healthy lifestyle. They enjoy exercising regularly as well as eating clean and healthy food. For these employees, the best corporate gifts for Christmas are personal fitness equipment!

        But remember not to give them space-consuming gym equipment like treadmills or rowers. They might not have the space at home.

        Portable sports accessories they can carry on everywhere (including office) will be great ideas for corporate gifts. For instance, a set of resistance bands or stretching strap, a high-quality jump rope or yoga mat, or stylish new gym outfits!

        Stroops VITL

        Unlike conventional resistance band, this kit allows you to custom your entire body workout more effectively. It's easy to use at home, just anchor it to your door and you're ready to burn those carbs!

        5. Health Care Kit

        We just mention that these employees also pay attention to what they eat. So, you can consider giving them a health care kit that includes essential vitamins, personal travel-sized toiletries, a personal blender for their smoothies or protein shakes, and don't forget a water bottle. You can also include coupons for medical check-ups or a health app subscription.

        6. Spa Box

        Healthy inside and out. Fitness Gurus also need a break to relax, not just for their bodies but for their minds! So, spa boxes will be great corporate gifts for Christmas with the holiday coming! You can include eye and face masks, scented candles, relaxing bath products, body scrubs, and spa coupons! Works every time.

        7. Air Purifier & Essential Oil Diffuser Combo

        I know that for some people, a home air purification doesn't sound exactly like one of "the most-wanted presents". But, hear me out, for the employees who are VERY concerned about health, air purifier is a thoughtful gift.

        Especially when you give them the one that also works as an essential oil diffuser. Their eyes will light up like Christmas. It can keep the air fresh, clean, and soothing. Quite useful for corporate gifts ideas for employees, who are working in their rooms the whole day.

        8. Fitness Tracker

        Technology can make our lives better and healthier! A fitness tracker will help them monitor their health as well as their sports activities. Just make sure you get a compact and water resistance fitness tracker so they can take it for a swim (or a bath).

        Gamer

        Potato Pirates love board games for Christmas gifts

        9. The Best Family Board Games

        Christmas is the best time to spend some quality time with dear ones. So, you can make this moment even more joyful by giving them unique, fun, and challenging board games. And not just a board game, but a pirate game! (Remember how Pirates of the Caribbean hit the blockbuster? It will be fun to play pirate in the "real world"!)

        You might want to check out one of the best pirates board games available in the market, Potato Pirates: Enter The Spudnet. You will play the role of Potato Pirates deliveryman and during the gameplay, you go through the Carbobbean seas and encounter sea creatures like the fearsome Kraken who could aid you in your conquest! 

        To make you holiday moment extra special, Potato Pirates x CRUST joined forces to deliver you the best and unique Christmas gift bundle: board game and beer! What's a better combination than having potatoes, bread, beer, and some games to celebrate your Christmas?

        10. Personalized Jigsaw Puzzle

        Another corporate gifts ideas for gamers is a personalized jigsaw puzzle. You can customize a photo puzzle for each employee. It’s personal, memorable, and (quite) uniquely enjoyable!

        And it also looks good as wall decoration (but for the avid gamer, we still think strategic board games or card games for families is the better way to go purely due to the replayability factor).

        11. Virtual Murder Mystery Games

        First of all, it's nothing like the online game Among Us. In virtual murder mystery games, you will be the detective who tries to crack a murder case. Some of the games are actually based on real cases!

        There are lists of virtual murder mystery games online. And some of them might make the best corporate gifts to employees who love themselves a bit of mystery and thrill!

        12. Paint By Numbers Kit

        For employees who like to explore new activities to try, you can get them a paint-by-numbers kit. This activity is both artsy and calming. There is a vast variety of Paint by Number kits with a myriad of themes such as animals, landscapes, or spaces. You can also have custom ones created from a photo to make it more personal.

        13. Online Classes

        Online classes can teach us almost everything, from watercolor painting, crafting, sculpting, calligraphy classes, to baking. You can give them a free coupon to join classes related to their hobbies or something totally new!

        14. DIY Candle Kit

        Making scented candles can easily be done at home with the help of do-it-yourself candle kits. It can also be very thoughtful corporate gifts for employees and coworkers and will be a great therapeutic experience for them.

        Who doesn't like a little aromatherapy? It is relaxing and many studies have shown that it also improves sleep quality.

        15. Mini Indoor Garden Kit

        Not all people have the luxury of living in a home where they can have a backyard or rooftop to grow some plants. So why don’t try a mini indoor garden?

        There are a variety of quality indoor gardening and grow kits such as garden kits for herbs (like basil, mint, rosemary, parsley, or arugula), vegetables, and flowers.

        16. Cocktail Kit

        It's perfect for employees who enjoy specialty cocktails. Especially during the pandemic when going out for a drink or two is quite challenging, the kit will give them the experience of making their own cocktail as well as enjoying homey drink time. Excellent timing for corporate gifts for Christmas!

        A cocktail kit usually includes the ingredients (syrups and liquor based on the drink choice), recipe book, muddler, and jigger.

        Movie Maniac

        17. OTT Platform Subscription

        During the pandemic, subscription-based video on demand is rising. What else we can do when we’re locked up inside the house for months!

        As for the movie maniac, free subscription to over-the-top movies and series streaming platforms will put them on cloud nine! It's simple, yet one of the most universally appreciated corporate gifts ideas.

        18. Snack Package

        Movies and snacks are a package deal. Without snacks, watching movies are like eating cheeseburger without cheese (It's not the best comparison, I know, but hopefully you get what I mean).

        If you decide to give packs of snacks as corporate gifts for Christmas, don’t forget to choose an assortment of snacks to last the movie marathon.

        19. Personalized Coffee Mugs

        Movie maniacs can spend hours (or days) non-stop watching series during the holiday season. A personalized coffee mug will keep them company when fighting the urge to sleep!

        A more high-tech mug can automatically heat the coffee to keep it hot. More expensive ones may even let you set the temperature.

        As long as the mug you choose shows your appreciation, any of them are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

        20. Smart Mood Lamp

        We need a mood booster to have exceptional movie nighttime. A smart mood lamp is a great choice because you don't need to install dimmer switches at home. It automatically changes color to match the movie’s mood. And it also helps you get better sleep (after long hours of binge watching shows!).

        This is also a great corporate gifts ideas for the gamer type of employees. No matter what type of game they play, be it one of the best family board games that everyone loves or the intense single player games to destress, the lamp can offer the perfect mood to pair it.

        Miroco Light Therapy Lamp

        This is one of the best therapy lamp with more than 2,500 five-star reviews on Amazon. The brightness is fully customizable with automatic timer setting from 10 to 60 minutes in length.

        Govee Flow Plus Smart LED Light Bars

        What's great about this high-tech lamp is that it works well with Alexa and Google Assistant. It's also perfect to create mood while watching movies.
