Here we are, back in Lockdown 2 or 3 or 4 depending on where you live – working from home, schooling from home and socialising online, with our only trips outside wearing masks and to buy food.
For now, what’s important is looking after our mental health and keeping ourselves and our families safe.
To help get through the next few weeks or so, we’ve put together a list of essentials to help your, your customers or employees survive this new round of lockdown.
With all the changes in our lives over the last few months, anxiety, lack of routine and changes to our eating patterns and lifestyles, it’s no wonder some of us are struggling to sleep just now.
A hot drink, a cozy blanket and a comfortable eye mask can help you forget your worries and drift off for a good nights sleep. The BBC news website also offers some practical and proven tips on beating insomnia.
Sharing is caring, but not when it comes to drinkware and mugs these days. Sure, it’s a branded merchandise staple, however mugs are a quick, easy and relatively low cost way to reach a large volume of customers, clients or employees all at once. It will certainly brighten up a workspace be it at home or in the office.
Bye bye bacteria! Pens have come a long way since the standard Bic biro. These anti-bacterial pens feature bio free additives which are moulded into the plastic components, the pens are continually cleaned of microbes and pathogens as they are being used.
Webcam covers have seen a resurgence in popularity as the workplace has moved from regular office to home office. It’s a simple but humble device, the webcam protector will protect your privacy with a simple slide of the finger on a bad hair day or to hide your messy room or drying clothes.

This product is designed so that users never have to touch surfaces. It easily attaches to a keyring and can be used to open doors, press elevator buttons, open drawers and help with using ATM machines. This little keepsafe tool helps you touch less and keep you safe – one more line of defence to keeping bacteria at bay.
No one should be without at least one these days. Here at Sourcing Box we have 2 and 3-ply reusable face masks, multi-functional tube bandanas (snoods) and medical grade quality masks. All can be delivered direct to your door and custom printed or plain.
Custom Employee Care Package
The world has changed massively in the last 10 months, and with those changes there seems to have been a loss of personal touch. Despite Teams, Zoom, Slack and Skype many of us are inhabiting our own little bubbles. There has been an increased demand for care packages and box sets in recent months. These have been for employees working from home due to shielding, clients customers or corporate contacts. Sourcing Box can help put together perfectly designed care package boxes with customised gifts and bespoke print.
Remember to look after yourself and give your head and body a chance to recharge. Step away from the laptop for regular breaks. Make a point of trying to get out for a walk when the weather allows and pick up the phone to check in on your friends – they will very much appreciate it. Most importantly, don’t forget to treat yourself when you need a little pick me up.
As always, if you would like any information on any of our products, we’re always here to help.
