Wellness-Related Corporate Gift Ideas That Promote Attendee Health and Mindfulness

Calm for Business

Meetings and events attendees come from all walks of life, traveling from cities around the world to come together in one place, and sometimes, it may seem as though their final destination is the only thing every attendee has in common. That, and their general interest in health and wellness.

No matter their background, what position they hold or what industry they’re a part of, every meeting attendee and business traveler has the same responsibilities that come alongside prioritizing oneself, which makes corporate gift-giving wellness items a win-win.

Following are a few useful wellness-related gift ideas that promote attendee health and wellness. 

Gifts for Sleeping

Sleep is hard enough to come by, and when business travel is a part of your typical routine, a good night’s sleep can feel impossible. Between noisy hotel hallways and uncomfortable airplane seats, even when attendees find the time to relax and rewind, creating a peaceful and comfortable environment for sleep can be tricky. Here are a few wellness gifts that can help make sleep a little easier: 

  • Sleep Mask with Built-In Headphones: This adjustable sleep mask is compact and easily transportable, making it easy for business travelers to toss in their carry-on bags and go. The built-in headphones come programmed with 12 different sleep soundtracks to tune out any distracting noises to make sleeping on the

  • Calm for Business: Calm for Business is a subscription in the Calm app and helps employees achieve better sleep, reduce stress and center themselves while promoting work-life balance.
