Getting into the Holiday Spirit on a Remote Team
Happy Holidays! How does your in-office team celebrate the holidays? A Christmas party? A gift exchange? Holiday treats in the break room?
On a remote team, it’s not possible for all of us to get together in person to share some holiday cheer, so we do things a little differently. For several years running (2015, 2016, 2017), it’s been one of our remote work holiday traditions to hold a holiday gift exchange, where we anonymously gift our fellow teammates with all kinds of neat presents.
Take a look at the haul from this year!
Harris Zhang (former employee) and Ilyas Ashirov
They gifted each other the same thing: ping pong paddles! (Now taking bets on who will have the winningest 2019 season in the unofficial co-working space ping pong league.)
Asuka Goya, Product Manager
This may be the year’s best gift.
Hillary Sciscoe, Director of
This gift is a “hoot”! (Sorry, we can’t resist a good pun.)
The title says it all.
The books are great, but peep those Christmas decorations!
Deborah Kim, Former Director of Product (former employee)
Secret Santa threw in a gift for Deborah’s Shiba Inu, Miso, too!
The perfect book to curl up with by a fire.
