Gift Ideas for Telecommuting Parents

Holidays are a time of giving. Here are some of my favorite things as a telecommuter. You could give these items to yourself, or put it on your wish list:

Signs: A “do not disturb” sign or “I am on a conference call” sign is on my list this year. The sign gives everyone in the household a hint to be quiet. The sign can be simple and handmade—for example, here are a few cute ones I found.

Headphones: A comfortable, high-quality set of headphones will be great this year. As a remote employee, I am always wearing some to help me stay focused and keep out unwanted noise. Here are some options.

A Gym Membership: We telecommuters need to leave the house. Getting a gym membership will be a great way for us to get the exercise we need and the social connections we desire. You can find great deals here.

Experiences: Going out to the theater, art museums, movies, etc. are other ways to ensure we get dressed and get out. You can find some options for shows here.
