Finding the perfect gift can be a challenge, and 2020… isn't helping! Doing your shopping in person won't be the same this year. Rather than dealing with long lines, masks, and carrying your six-foot tape measure everywhere you go, why not shop from the comfort of home?
Our digital 2020 Gift Guides are here to make gifting a breeze, so you can finish out a crazy year with at least a little bit of peace. Browse our site to find premium, handcrafted leather accessories, enjoy fast and free shipping on every purchase, and help us to end exploitation in Ethiopia by creating safe, stable jobs.
Gift Guide: For The Home Office-rs.
According to a Stanford study, 42% of all Americans now work from home, and depending on your circles, everyone on your gifting list might be spending their work days in a home "office". But we know what home office means – far too often it's the pillow desk, the couch cushion office chair, and keeping that camera off so nobody can see the nest you've created for yourself.
Working from home is here to stay, and it's about time we get used to it! It also means that remote-work essentials are sure to be some of the hottest gifting ideas of 2020. Help your friends, family, and loved ones to level up their home office game with these work-from-anywhere favorites.
For those who could benefit from a little structure in their workspace, look no further than the Gebeta Desk Mat. Made from premium, full-grain leather, it's the perfect foundation for a practical, organized, and beautiful workspace.
Remote work in 2020 is all about the laptop, right? It goes with you everywhere, and keeping it protected (and looking stylish) is key. Check out our laptop sleeves; the plush and zippable Sira Sleeve or the tough and minimalist Presidio Sleeve.
Important things deserve to be organized, protected, and looking good! The Kibreab Folder is ideal for keeping documents and papers in one place and safe from spills, while keeping a workspace neat and more than just presentable. For the writers and journal-ists among us, the Koda Journal Cover turns any notebook into the notebook, providing a timeless leather look and a handy writing surface on the go.
Don't underestimate the little things! Sometimes the smallest annoyances can be enough to throw off the feng shui of a workspace, and that's no good for productiveness or mental wellbeing. A stack of Cuyama Coasters, a handful of Mesa Cord Tacos, or an Eyob Pencil Case can go a long way for keeping the "zone" clutter-free.
And, saving the most important for last, share the love of caffeine with our Ethiopian Whole Bean Coffee. Our factory in Addis Ababa has two firmly-scheduled coffee breaks every day, and making time to enjoy Ethiopian coffee is something we can all agree on. With notes of jasmine and orange, you don't have to do a full Ethiopian roasting ceremony to appreciate a cup. But if you do, please (please) send pics.
That does it for the Work From Home edition of our 2020 Gift Guide. For the remote-workers, roaming entrepreneurs, or those struggling with a 2-in-1 office + daycare combo, just about anything on this list can contribute to a more functional, happier workspace. Give the gift of peace of mind this year, and remember, every purchase contributes to safe and stable employment in Ethiopia.
