Did you know that it takes just 14 seconds for a person to decide if they like a Christmas gift or not? Consequently, people return or re-gift more than half of the presents they receive over the festive period.
That's why companies across the world prefer to reward their most valid workers with a Christmas bonus instead of tacky gift-wrapped knick-knacks.
What’s The Essence of a Christmas Bonus?
The idea of gifting cash bonuses is not that new. It was started in 1899 by the F.W Woolworth Company. Their model rewards employees with $5 for each year of dedicated service. Since then, many companies have taken varied approaches to award bonuses.
Some give all their employees a Christmas bonus, while for some, it is contingent on meeting targets, length of services, and end-year profit statements. Christmas bonuses are about more than merely ensuring your employees get what they want for Christmas.
Companies can use them as lucrative incentives to help retain high-quality staff and keep company morale at an all-time high. There are also tax exemptions, which allow some companies to dole out end-year bonuses that can equal half or an entire month's wages.
So, have you been a good boy or girl at your job this year? Well, you can skip writing to Santa, cash in your bonus, and hit a store to get whatever your jolly heart desires.
Are you stuck on what to get? We have that covered with some handy suggestions, so follow along!
Upgrading Your Office Furniture: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Let's face it, 2021 has been a tough year. It's been lousy with grief, fear, and uncertainty across all industries both for office workers and remote staff. But you made it! To top it off, someone up your chain of command saw it fit to reward all that hard work.
So, right now, you’re probably contemplating all the things you can do to reward yourself. Sure, you could use this extra cash to feast like a king or take your family or friends out for some fun. That’s perfectly fine.
But, wouldn't it be better to get something to remember how you made it against such overwhelming odds-just for this year anyway? An office furniture upgrade is a practical way to do so.
The following products give you the perfect place to start:
Switching to a remote work scenario has loads of benefits. Companies get to retain their best workers while cutting back on overhead costs such as keeping the lights on while you as an employee get to work whenever and from wherever you please.
However, working from anywhere comes with some challenges. Chief among them is that it's hard to attain a high level of workplace ergonomics. This, more often than not, leads to back, shoulders, and neck pains.
Ditching your traditional sitting desk in favor of a standing desk can help you solve most of your ergonomic issues in one swoop.
Here is why it may be a swell idea to use your Christmas bonus to get the Willow Pro Standing Desk:
A Durable Solid Wood Desktop
Many companies cut costs by providing their customers with tacky and sometimes chaffy desktops. Flexispot is not one of them. This standing desk features a solid wood counter milled directly from the trees.
So, you get the genuine feel and aroma of wood minus any adhesives of fillers. You get the following choices with each order:
Rubberwood: sourced ethically from rubber trees at the end of their production cycle. This ensures you get the authentic feel of wood without the guilt of contributing to global deforestation. You get a well-crafted desk that can serve you well into your retirement.

Other Perks To Getting the Willow Pro
At 50 decibels (dB), a raving computer probably makes more noise than this desk while it's on the move. The desk also comes with a comprehensive manual and loads of YouTube How-to tutorials, so assembling it is a walk in the park.
You also get a 5-year warranty on the frame, motor, and other mechanisms and 2 years for the switch controllers and other electronic components.
But, with such robust construction and attention to design, you'll most likely never cash in the warranty!
Getting a standing desk gives you plenty of room and excuses to get up and stretch. While this can be good for your blood circulation and spinal alignment, it's not a walk in the park, especially if you stand for hours on end. In that case, you'll need to comfortably take a load off your feet when standing gets tiresome.
