How To Embrace the 'Summer Slump' with Employee Gifts

The Summer Slump is real and in full swing for employees during June, July and August with Forbes reporting that workplace productivity drops 20% during the summer. So why not take this opportunity to celebrate your employees for all the hard work they’ve done up to this point with a summer-themed gift box sent right to their home?

The Project

We were approached by KPMG Canada to create cocktail gift boxes for their  Team Summer Social event. Our client wanted us to create a fun margarita kit so we knew we wanted to play up the tropical vibes that come from drinking a margarita by using bright vibrant colours and flavours!

We incorporated the essentials for a flavourful margarita including Kinsip’s Orange Bitters from Prince Edward County, Kanel Spices Jalapeño Verde & Lime Salt for rimming the glass, lime and a small treat of Squish Vegan Gummy Candies. We made sure to also bring the island vibe to the outside of the gift box by creating a custom branded sticker with tropical leaves and a custom message from our KPMG client.

These gift boxes came together perfectly and we were so happy to get to send out tropical-themed gifts at a time when we all could use a beach-side vacation and a margarita!

Tell us, how do you celebrate your team?
