Working from Home Essentials

While we all hope this period of uncertainty is over soon. We are all getting used to a new normal. Part of this new normal is working from home. Some of you would have home offices already set up others would have had your employer provide you with home officer starter kit; Desk, chair, Computer etc. but there are a number of essential promotional products that can make this transition easier. These come with the added bonus of communicating a brand message or keeping your brand front of mind for clients or a feel good for your employees.

Lets talk about the basics. At home there is no stationary cupboard with unlimited paper, notebooks, pens, highlighters etc. Below are some of our stationary recommendations with a twist:

A fully customized notebook with a sleek ribbon logo bookmark. Looks great right? But the key feature that we love so much so that we did our own version of this notebook is the doubled sided full colour pages scattered throughout the lined pages communicating key messaging to the end user through the lifespan of the notebook. It’s the gift that keeps giving!

Pens can be a dime a dozen. We need them yes but how can you make yours stand out. Small print areas mean branding can often get lost. Hello to the 3D Pen. HUGE customised logo on the clip means your branding is front and centre.


the #1 selling product for 2019 was the wireless charger and its never been more relevant in the current pandemic. Its an opportunity for you to have your brand inside the homes and on the desk of every home office. They come in all shapes and sizes making the compact versions perfect for a direct mail out.

Soundclip Amazon Alexa. One thing that makes the Minc Marketing office is our shared Spotify playlist. Its always on in the background while we are working away. We love sharing songs with each other and that is why we think another tech essential for your home office is a quality Bluetooth speaker. The soundclip also has the added feature of amazon Alexa and she knows everything!!! “Alexa is iso over yet?” Perfect GWP and its waterproof too.

Earbuds: From Zoom calls to skype calls and all the normal phone calls in between. Communication has had to adapt during Covid 19 and branded earbuds have never been so useful. Especially for those of us sharing our isolation with housemates or family! Stay quiet and stay connected with these wireless earbuds.

Wellness and Mindfulness

The trouble with combining the office with your home environment is it can become hard to separate the two. That’s why its important to take a break, clear your mind, destress and find some time for physical activity.

Resistance bands: A Home work outs best friend. Also known as booty bands. In terms of a cost effective giveaway that can been mailed out these are perfect. Light, Large branding area and useful.

Yoga Mat.

 I don’t know about you but the Minc team have planned to conquer a lot of things in isolation and one of those is YOGA! We’ve allocated a few hours a week to perfecting the art and taking some time out. A Yoga Mat as your next GWP is perfect in the current situation. Why not give it as a gift to your staff to let them know their wellbeing is important to you and your company.


Diffusers and humidifiers are another thoughtful branded gift during this time. Fill a room with fresh, scented hydration, and prepare for tranquillity. Humidifiers can assist with reducing headaches, stress, while improving breathing. Airmate can even help to deter pests from your space. Ideal with distilled water, or add a few drops of your favourite essential oil.

A beautiful smelling candle can be a perfect employee gift and will get rid of the smell of Susan’s tuna on you’re lunch break. Oh no wait you are Susan. 😉

In conclusion we are a one stop shop for all your covid needs from Branded masks, sanitisers, to the essentials for the home office we can adapt any promotional product to suit your current situation and brief.
