Why the Gift of Workspace is the Perfect Present for Anyone Working from Home

We’re all struggling to get through the end of 2020 the best we can. Some families are back to virtual learning. Companies are pushing back their return to the office. We’re in the middle of Chanukah and less than 10 days away from Christmas. It’s been easy to outfit home offices with endless Amazon purchases made during quarantine. What’s a great gift that anyone working from home will be happy to receive? The gift of workspace…trust us.

It’s Safe to Use Coworking Spaces…Smartly

Even as more governments and municipalities are implementing stricter lockdown orders, most coworking spaces are still able to operate. And there hasn’t yet been one we’ve found that isn’t taking safety and security seriously. Operators the world around are limiting capacity, blocking off seats, implementing higher cleaning standards and even renting private offices by the day.

Anyone who is having to work from home, whether you have multiple roommates who are all hogging bandwidth, no dedicated workspace at home or distractions from chores or kids might very well be asking Santa for a membership or gift card to a coworking space.

How to Give the Gift of Workspace

Different remote workers need different types of workspace. Some might be comfortable with hot desks while others might prefer only working in a private office. Some will be returning to traveling as there is wider immunization. Others might be staying close to home. Here’s some of the options for gifting workspace to the remote workers in your life:

For the road warrior who will be getting back on the road: you may want to consider a flex membership to larger brands such as WeWork, Spaces or Industrious.

For those who are working in a single market but might need spaces in a few different parts of town, check out a membership app like Deskpass, who is currently offering gift subscriptions.

For someone who is staying close to home and wants to connect locally: you want to give them local memberships. That’s why GiftWorkspace.com has a list of great independent coworking spaces that are offering unique gift memberships.
