Fun Team-Building Gift Boxes and Experiences for Remote Employees (2024)

Updated by Timothy Paradis

Having a strong team spirit in the digital office is the first step to building a better company. Camaraderie and cooperation can lead to more effective collaboration across team members or departments in your business, especially with more remote employees following the pandemic, and team-building gifts are one tool you can use unite your team beyond a tote bag with a company logo. The best team-building gifts build employee morale, promote teamwork, and make every day a good day to do some fulfilling, hard work.

It's not easy finding the right morale-boosting gift for your remote workers While company-branded stainless steel tumblers, water bottles, and power banks can help with building a team identity and Amazon gift cards are okay for a quick pick-me-up, they've been done. They don't exactly show appreciation in that personalized gift-giving way. You can do better. This year, choose genuinely creative company swag that makes your employees feel seen.

We put together employee appreciation gifts that boost team spirit through experiences and show your staff appreciation from wherever their desks are.

Customer Review

"I received the engraving kit and I love it! I practiced on an old glass weigh scale to get the hang of engraving. I then started the glass coasters using pictures off google. I am sooo happy with how they turned out! It’s very relaxing and is a great stress reliever. I have a few people now wanting me to make them sets of coasters :)" - Megan T.

“I have been getting Finders Seekers boxes for over a year, and I cannot lie, I'm obsessed. The mysteries are a lot of fun, and they are so much fun to do with friends, especially those that haven't done something like this before. Occasionally, the puzzles are evil (I'm looking at you, Paris box!), but the fact that after a year they can still challenge me is a good thing.” - Rachel C.
