Time to spice up the usual? This June, revel in the 'special' days and add a mid-year bang to the day-to-day.
In-between the major milestones like Christmas, Easter, EOFY and R U OK? Day, there's still lots to celebrate or leverage for in-between fun and engagement. So this June we challenge you to add a little oomph to the ordinary and surprise your team, partners or clients to something a little spesh.
So, check-out the below dates and ideas to drive employee engagement and client retention!
June 5th – World Environment Day
A United Nations initiative, this day is becoming more and more important, but we don't need to tell you that! Whether it's your team or your customers, a green-mind and business ethos is integral. If you won't take our word for it, check-out these stats. This day is all about raising awareness for the environment so we suggest spreading the word literally with your name all over it. From eco merch packs fit for an office Queen including a double tier bamboo lunchbox and re-usable food packs, to recycled water bottles and reusable straws, if you want eco, we've got eco! Start shopping here via sustainable, organic, B Corp and recyclable products.
June 10th – National Ballpoint Pen Day
Didn't know this existed? Neither did we until a while ago and while it's technically a US day, we're all about it! The ballpoint pen – an ole faithful that we can't imagine a day without; an absolute essential. The ballpoint has arguably been around since either 1888, invented by an an American or since 1943 when two brothers from Argentina submitted a patent (the Biro brothers). Whoever you believe to be the first, we don't think there will ever be a last! So, add a little fun and frivolity to the usual and treat the team to new branded ballpoints writing a little history into the day while you're at it! Shop all branded pens here – with many that can literally write for miles!
June 21st – Winter Solstice
If there was ever a day to celebrate the cooler months (and fashion), this is it! As the temps drop the need for winter swag peaks, so don't miss the boat! From beanies to jumpers, long-sleeve tee's, thermos cups and mugs, socks and more, there's plenty of epic merch to keep your team running hot! Check-out our winter collection to shop all-things cool.
June 21st – World Music Day
Originally launched in France in 1982 as Fête de la Musique, it's now celebrated around the world! The day is all about celebrating music in all forms and the impact it has on the world and human spirit. Can you imagine a day – let alone life – without music? It's a hard no from us. Further, listening to music is shown to reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure, decrease cortisol, and increase serotonin so it really is the best medicine. Encourage your people to have a listen to their fave beats and have a boogie with some epic merch you know will be worn out, not thrown out! Some of our favourites include the SkullCandy Riff Wireless Headphones, Twilight Speaker Lamp, Bamboo Bluetooth Speaker, and the SkullCandy Indy Evo True Wireless Earbuds.
Want to pack-up some of your favourites into one? Easy as. Check-out our merch packs where you can design your own, or choose from our pre-made picks!
