4 Must-have Items for the Rainy Season

Must have items for rainy season

The rainy season is one of the most anticipated seasons in the Philippines, as not only does it cool down the warm-tropical weather, it also marks the beginning of a colder climate within the country. But anticipated as it may be, many are still cautious of this weather’s negative effects, and a heavy rain gives no exemption to either daily commuters or indoor residents. Yes, the summer season may have produced some of the hottest days of the year, but at least everyone could still travel outdoors without the fear of getting drenched, neither would anyone even need to worry about flashfloods making their way into their homes. However, there is no need to worry, as there are countless items that people can use during emergency situations this rainy season. Not only would they guaranty their users a smooth, dry commute, they would also provide safety in the long run. Here are a just few examples:

1)  An Umbrella

Making the top of the list, an umbrella transcends its use way beyond the current season, as it can help deflect both the cool, drizzly rain and the scorching summer heat. Widely regarded as one of the most basic, yet, functional item in human history, an umbrella would at least last long enough to fend off a few years of unbearable heat and unexpected rains. Think about it, every community outreach encourages the use of an umbrella, even at the slightest weather change. Of course, it wouldn’t do much during heavy monsoons, but for light showers, it would at least keep you dry when walking towards your SUV terminals or school service.

2)  A Power Bank

Make sure that your gadgets are fully charged during emergencies. The force of nature doesn’t really wait around for everyone’s cellphone batteries to reach a 100%, and may decide to knock out the local power lines in the process. This is where a power bank may come in handy. A multi-purpose power bank is the most appropriate handy tool during brown outs, as it not only charges your cellphone, it may also function as a mini-flashlight, good for those evacuation sequences.

3)  A Whistle

Small as it may seem, a whistle could actually save your life while in a calamity. Remember that scene from that historical movie, where the protagonist was about to be left behind after a shipwreck? Not only did the sound of her whistle catch the attention of the rescue team, it also lead them to her exact location. Imagine getting stranded on the top of your roof after a flash flood. Your whistle would alert volunteer teams to your whereabouts, leading to a successful rescue. It could also work both ways, with rescue teams using their whistles to let any nearby survivors know that help is on the way.

4)  An Emergency Kit

Possibly the most useful item in any emergency situation, an emergency kit already contains a whistle, a first-aid kit, a can opener, various packs of medicine, a safety knife, a strong strand of rope, a flashlight, and some even have their own power banks, thus including two other important items in this list already. Of course, depending on the kit type and brand, the contents may vary, but nonetheless, each will always have the basic necessities needed during emergencies, and the rainy season should be no different.

Your top employees would surely appreciate going to the grocery in style.  No dull fashion here, as this is the perfect tote to complete that “organic modern” style. It’s also particularly sturdy and well-made, a perfect fit for all of the freshly-bought produce and foodstuff.

2)  A Bernard Day Book with Pen

Your top employees would no longer need to save countless merit stickers just to get a mere organizer.  Give them a Bernard Day Book instead, something that they can use to jot down business ideas, which may be beneficial to the company. It also comes with a securely fastened slim pen, so they may write down whatever they please on-the-spot. Did we mention that it is also customizable? You can imprint the company name and logo on both the book and pen, hence, your top employees can show off the company brand in style.

3)  A Coffee Press Set

Your top employees deserve something better than ready-mixes after all, hence, why an elegant coffee press set would be the perfect gift for them. Gone are days when they would mope over overtimes and deadlines, the more energized and well-appreciated they are, the more they would perform exceptionally.

4)  A Cheese Knives Set

This may be the most out-of-this-world choice for an elegant gift, but think about it, aren’t we Filipinos identified as the most hospitable in the world? Which is why giving your top employees a cheese knives set would help them serve houseguests in style.

3 Giveaways to Motivate Creativity Among Your Employees

Giveaways to Motivate

The office can be a bland, boring place at times. Especially on slow months, employees can very well spend hours in the office, sitting in front of their monitor screens, hoping for time to go faster. Indeed, things can get monotonous, only picking up once office tasks are on the verge of deadlines, and even that doesn’t really add anything new to the daily routine of desk work and meetings. This situation can be averted, however. As an employer, you can motivate your employees to bring out their creative side. In such case, corporate giveaways that encourage creativity would greatly help in the long run. Just think about it, these new, creative ideas from your employees may be utilized to further develop the company as whole. Here are just a few prime examples of these giveaways:

1) An organizer

Some of the greatest ideas ever known to man were written down in paper before they were even acted out in real life. So imagine if each one of your employees were given a piece of paper, the possibilities of them thinking up the “next big thing” would be phenomenal at best. But why stop with a piece of paper, if you can give them a whole notebook? An organizer would not only allow them to manage their schedules, it would also provide them with space to jot down their everyday ideas. This in turn can be beneficial for the company, especially if they come up with an idea to ease up everyday tasks, or simply to deliver it all more efficiently.

2) A Sketchpad

If organizers are well-fitted for corporate folks, then sketchpads are a sure-match for artists. For advertising agencies and graphic design companies, artists are one of the main source of their income. Without artists and creatives, these company types would not thrive, hence it is important for them to give free rein to their employees in bringing out (or sketching up) their ideas. A sketchpad would be a blank canvas for them to come up with their next masterpiece.

3) A Colorful Memo Set

Commonly known in the office as “post-its,” a memo set serves mainly as written reminders for the employees. They usually come in a plain yellow color, but newer iterations are sold in a variety of bright (and even neon) colors, motivating creativity among employees who are using them from time to time. Do your employees a favor and give them a corporate gift that keeps on giving. A memo set would not look as impressive as a bag or an umbrella (those of which are common company giveaways), however, it would encourage your employees to think outside the box when “posting” their reminders. Remember, your goal is to liven up their workspace, and brightly-colored stick-ons are a surefire way of doing just that.
