Working from home as a Remote Filipino Worker has never been more common or acceptable than it is today. Despite being in the pandemic for over 2 years now, a lot of employees and freelancers still work partly if not fully from home.
Getting into the groove of being a productive remote worker can be challenging because of excessive distractions or lack of certain amenities and creature comforts that you’d normally have access to when you work in an office.
We’ve compiled options that we think are both delightful and useful to help you or a loved one have a more comfortable remote work experience. Here is the list of our recommended work from home gift ideas for remote workers in the Philippines.
