We’ve been fully remote since the pandemic struck, and the benefits of working from home have been tremendous.
Our team has seen a significant boost in productivity thanks to the freedom it gives our employees to manage their schedules and work from anywhere in the world. We’ve also noticed improved morale because working from home means less stressful commutes and more time with family and friends.
In addition to the personal gains of working remotely, our business has also seen a range of positive impacts. Our overhead costs have decreased significantly since we no longer need to cover the costs of office space and utilities. We’ve also expanded our recruitment efforts, as talented professionals from around the globe can join us without relocating.
The downside, of course, is that employee engagement can suffer from the lack of physical interaction. To combat this, we’ve implemented various innovative tools and strategies to keep our team connected and engaged, such as virtual happy hours, online training sessions, and weekly check-in calls.
During these calls, we hit on the fact that many of us love Halloween, so we hosted our first-ever small Halloween costume contest. People started getting into the idea, with Halloween gift ideas being passed around and people talking about Halloween gift baskets they had previously made for their friends and families.
This was an excellent opportunity to boost morale and create friendly competition within the team. We agreed that a small Halloween gift set would be acceptable as a reward for the costume contest winner.
Thankfully Swag Magic was there to help us out. They had a wide selection of Halloween gifts, including swag gift sets and individual items like t-shirts and keychains that could be personalized with our logo or Halloween graphics. We loved the idea of giving something as a prize to remind everyone of this fun event long after it was over.

Regarding Halloween gifts for her, we went the more traditional route. We chose decorations like a witch-shaped tealight candle holder, a pumpkin spice-scented wax melt, and a festive wall hanging featuring a scary owl. The team also found some great options for him. These included an LED Jack O’ Lantern lantern, ghoulishly scented air fresheners, and a pumpkin-shaped pen.
We also had some fun with the office decorations, setting up creepy spider webs and bats around the ceiling, adding a little spooky ambiance to our work environment. We even hung ghostly garlands of paper ghosts throughout the office, adding fun to the festive atmosphere.

Once the Halloween party was over, we decided that we should give back to our community. We thought it would be nice to provide Halloween with gifts to our favorite teachers so they could enjoy the holiday. So, we decided on some teacher Halloween gift ideas. These included a spooky mug, gothic-style stationary sets, and a themed pencil case.
We workshopped some Halloween gift ideas for students to give to their teachers during this spooky season. After we workshopped, we thought it would be nice to give back and help our educators. So we decided on some Halloween gift box items like a classroom survival kit, a journal with a fun Halloween cover design, and something special for the students, like candy or pencils.
The team wanted to ensure everyone could enjoy the holiday. So we brainstormed some fun activities that the teachers could do with their classes. We came up with ideas like hosting a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt, making spooky slime in science class, and having a costume contest.
Last, but not least, we wanted to ensure our teachers had something special for themselves too! We decided on a relaxation package with an aromatherapy candle, a cozy throw blanket, and herbal tea. That way, they can take a break and relax after a long day of teaching!
We wanted to ensure everyone got in the Halloween spirit this year, so we put together these unique gifts for our educators.
