We’ve done a “secret” holiday gift exchange at Edgar Allan each December since as long as I can remember. But, as we all know, holiday shopping and gifting has looked a little different since the pandemic began, whether it's because of limiting in-person gatherings, or supply chain issues and major shipping delays.
As a digital agency — and one that has embraced working remotely and has recently expanded our team to include employees across the country and the globe — we decided to go all in on our online nature and added an “all virtual gifts” caveat this year, circumventing distance and package delivery-related obstacles. It may have added its own layer of challenge to the hunt for the perfect present, but it also resulted in some of the most thoughtful and creative gifts we’ve seen yet (including some fantastic Figma-designed “unwrapping” experiences via Zoom screen-sharing).
So procrastinators rejoice: If you’re still trying to figure out what to get for everyone on your list — without having to worry about days to ship — we’re sharing a list of the gifts our team gave.
Consider it our gift to you. Happy holidays and happy gifting!
