When January 1, 2020 came about this year, it couldn’t have been predicted what was to come. 2020 has certainly been tumultuous, and one major cultural shift has been seen in the rise of remote working. Home-based business owners now have that common ground with corporate individuals.
At-home working is tying many groups of people together, leading to stronger virtual connections and innovative ways of implementing ideas. The business world has adapted to this “new normal” and it’s suggested that 16% of remote workers will stay that way for a long time after the pandemic is resolved. During lockdown, the holidays were always on the horizon as something to look forward to amidst the shutdowns. Regardless of all the unrest, the cherished holidays would come to be.
This holiday season takes on a new energy as trips have been cancelled left and right. In lieu of travel plans to the mountains of Big Bear Lake or the coast of Miami for a warm getaway, many entrepreneurs are choosing to stay at home. Though there are always video calls, it’s still immensely tough on families around the world separated due to COVID-19 concerns. This makes sending an uplifting gift to a loved one all the more beneficial!
Take a look at these truly wonderful products that will make for perfect holiday gifts.
