One great way to embrace the holiday season is by decorating your standing desk. As much time as you spend at work, you’ll really enjoy walking to your office space and seeing the area decorated for the holidays. But some companies aren’t too jazzed about employees putting up holiday decorations. Here are a couple ideas on how you can decorate your standup desk and office area in a way that’s appropriate for the office.
Set Out Some Sweet Holiday Treats
Holiday treats come wrapped in festive packaging, making it the perfect low-cost holiday decoration. Set up a creative little display on your motorized standing desk that features your favorite holiday candy like candy canes, gum drops, and green and red M&Ms. It’s the perfect parting gift for anyone who stops by your desk, and it will also provide a nice afternoon snack for you.
Hang Up a Small Stocking
The age-old tradition of hanging up stockings by the fireplace can now be a tradition for the office. It’s a great classic decoration that won’t take up much space on your height adjustable desk. And if you don’t want a full size stocking, you can easily find smaller or mini-sized stockings. Be sure to get a holiday stocking holder, which you can set up on a shelf or on your desktop, as a way to hang your pint-sized stocking.
Display a Calendar Counting Down to the Holidays
The holiday season has a tendency to sneak up faster than we realize. So why not let everyone (including you) know how far away the holidays are with a great calendar. There are many options to choose from—digitized calendars to ones that are adjusted by hand—and you’ll also be able to customize the holiday you want to countdown to, whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, etc. You’ll get a lot of enjoyment seeing the days tick away and it also serves as a helpful reminder for how many days you have left to finish your holiday shopping.
Pick out a Poinsettia
Christmas trees are the iconic holiday decoration, but they can often be big, bulky and a tad over-the-top for the office environment. Poinsettias are a great alternative to a Christmas tree. They are much more subtle and appropriate for the work setting. Yet they still add some festive greenery to your space.
During the holiday season, give yourself the gift of a standup desk. TrueNorth standing desks have tremendous health benefits, and it’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving.
