It’s no secret employees who feel valued and appreciated perform better. However, with more remote teams than ever before, employers are faced with the unique challenge of how to reward their employees from afar.

One of the most effective means to reward and recognize work-from-home team members is through thoughtful gifts.

As Corporate Gift Box specialists, we know a thing or two about gifting employees. So here’s our top list of gifts remote employees will love.
