When we reconnect—make it memorable

If you’re like us, reconnecting on-site for meetings, events, and incentive trips is probably high on your wishlist but not ranking highly on your current to-do list. The postponement of on-site programs doesn’t mean you can’t, or shouldn’t, start planning ahead in the meantime. Like planting a seed in the ground, the on-site programs you plan now will eventually bloom into memorable gift experiences.

Laughter to lift spirits

Is it safe to say that we all could use some laughter right about now? Comedy can lift our spirits in times like these, encouraging us all to stay upbeat and positive. Thanks to technology, there are endless amounts of entertainment at our fingertips and multiple ways to phone in the comedic relief.

Work-from-home tips

In tough times, one of the best things you can do is lean on friends for support and learn from one another through sharing advice and experiences. With that, we turned to our colleagues who already work remotely to compile a list of helpful tips that might give you a better perspective on working from home.

More to love on-site

Choice is the simplest, most effective way to ensure every guest finds a gift they love and one they will use for months or years after the event fades. Going into the new decade, we’re bringing more choice and on-site variety for our clients and their guests to fall in love with. Consider this a labor of love.
