1. Customised Terrazzo Holders
An elegant addition to the work desk, or shelf, this terrazzo rectangular holder helps in the organisation of stationery and other accessories, and keeps the work desk neat and looking all professional! A modern and timeless design as compared to the usual pen holders in the market. We especially love the handcrafted terrazzo detail and the sturdiness of this gift, fit for corporate gifting.
Available in two other designs and colourways too here on our website.
2. Customised Preserved Floral Diffuser
Work can get dull at times we know... Set yourself up for success with a positive mood and a clear mind with our customised round preserved floral diffuser and humidifier with light - a little aromatherapy in the middle of the work day can work wonders! It releases mist too, great for hydration, especially in an air-conditioned work place.
If you are sharing a gift with your other colleagues in the team, our best-selling gift set is our pairing of our diffuser and terrazzo mug! This set for Soyeon was from her marketing team :)
See our range of customised round preserved floral diffusers here on our website.
3. Customised Mugs
Mugs are the #1 essential in the office and how best to ensure your colleagues do not take the wrong mug? Customise it with your name! We carry a variety of mugs for different personalities or you can get matching mugs for your work BFF - how does that sound? :) Mugs make great farewell gifts for your colleagues too to thank them for their help and friendship.
Jumpstart your morning or rid your food coma with your favourite coffee or tea in your own personalised mug. And bring it to meetings for the subtle "wow that's pretty"!
4. Customised Adjustable Height Handphone Stand
Perfect for anyone who uses their phone or tablets to perform a variety of tasks - within and beyond the work place! There are so many phone stands out there in the market and we picked this because of its adjustable height feature which helps to avoid unnecessary strain on your neck. And of course, the sleek design and colours. Anti-slip feature on the base of the stand too! We reach out for ours every day, to help us in multi-tasking and being more productive.
This phone stand can be symbolic of your working relationship with your colleagues - steady and can't live without it once you have it. The above photographed phone stands were customised by our customer to thank, encourage and appreciate her team members for a challenging period they have just tidied through in work and for their support towards her. How heartwarming when leaders take the time to acknowledge the efforts of their members instead of taking it for granted! Affordably-priced, they make great mass gifts too for your team.
Our phone stands can hold your biggest-sized phones and tablets, like the Amazon Kindle here. This set was picked by our customer to congratulate Jesiah on his graduation and welcome him into the working world. Up your “boss” factor with our sturdy and minimalistic terrazzo holder and our adjustable height silver handphone stand!
Available in three colours here on our website.
If you are looking for a more whimsical phone stand, our mermaid tail ones make mer-mazing gifts! Our favourite is the emerald green design, which exudes opulence and lavishness - any stylish boss or colleague that comes into your mind?
As a farewell gift, our customer picked this to thank her colleague while they worked remotely from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sending her gratitude, especially since it was her first step into the working world and to have met such an awesome colleague.
Our mermaid tail phone stands are available in 3 colours here on our website, for those fin-tastic colleagues of yours!
5. Customised Travel-Themed Terrariums
For those with green fingers in your office or someone whom you always share about travel escapades with, our customised travel-themed air plant terrariums are designed to feed the wanderlust of your co-workers, especially since many have not been able to travel for some time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are studies on how having some greenery in a work space or work desk can have major positive benefits in reducing stress levels, boosting productivity and encouraging creativity. Our terrariums can be part of a nifty care package to help employees in your organisation as a corporate wellness gift!
Available in 12 designs here on our website.
6. Customised Preserved Floral Domes
Flowers definitely brighten up a space and lifts moods. With everlasting real flowers and a customisable name, our regular and mini preserved floral glass domes are great affordable gifts if you are looking for alternatives to flower bouquets.
Here's why we think domes are better than bouquets:
- The glass dome protects your flowers from dust accumulation, hence prolonging the longevity of your preserved flowers.
- Straight from gift to desk: No need to find a matching vase.
Our fortune cat preserved floral domes (in large size) are also popular for new office opening or promotion! Deneen received this from her Office Mum and Favourite Co-Worker as a congratulatory gift on her long-awaited promotion and as an encouragement to do even better. HUAT AH!
Find our range of preserved floral domes here on our website!
7. Customised Coasters and Trays
Ever popular farewell gift picks from our customers who are leaving the office - customised terrazzo print coasters and trinket trays. Under $20, variety of colours and designs for unisex options, and a thoughtful accessory to the work desk. Great addition to corporate gift sets for staff care packs too!
8. Customised Preserved Floral Bluetooth Speaker
A lavish gift, our customised preserved floral bluetooth speakers are here for the significant milestones in your work life and for that greatly respected boss or colleague. They can relax and rejuvenate by streaming their favourite tunes to jumpstart the day or wind down at night. This blue-pink preserved floral bluetooth was for JH's farewell, from her colleague, Rebecca.
