If you and your staff need a treat to get over the holiday blues how about gifting them with something that would benefit them and your business? MacBook accessories are guaranteed to make your team more productive, and not just with the motivation of a great present.
Stuck for ideas? Here are three contenders for your shopping list:
1. USB-C hub adaptor
The MacBook has a whole host of features that make it an attractive buy, yet realising it has a USB-C port, and that your USB cables, memory cards, external display and ethernet cable aren’t compatible, is a frustration. Productivity doesn’t have to hampered though: USB-C adaptors have a range of ports so you can still use these essentials.
The Satechi Aluminum Multi-Port Adapter V2 has multiple port options, including those for SD/micro cards, three USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit Ethernet. This makes it an ideal gift for your team, as it’s unlikely they would need any other connectors.
Don’t need Ethernet? The HooToo USB-C adaptor has other vital ports and is much more cost-effective than its competitors.
2. Power station
Anyone who travels as part of their work will likely face agitation at their MacBook battery. A power bank is fantastic as a contingency plan, charging the device up so that they can continue working.
One of the best is the Morphie Powerstation AC. It has a 100W wall plug, a USB-A 3.5 quick charge port and a 30W USB-C fast charge port for even swifter charging. The only downside is that it can’t be carried in your pocket.
There are plenty of alternatives if you need portability, such as the Tronsmart Presto 10400mAh USB-C Battery Pack. Weighing around half a pound, it’s much lighter for business trips and still extends the MacBook’s battery life effectively.
3. MacBook stand
Strains, aches and pains are an unfortunate by-product of device-based roles, but you can minimise these for your employees with a MacBook stand.
Rain Design’s mStand allows for maximum airflow to your MacBook to keep it from overheating, as does the Rain Design mStand. This second design makes the most of space, with the base providing a place for a wireless keyboard and mouse. Want even more flexibility? Opt for a swivel base.

Each MacBook accessory has a different price tag, so the one you choose will depend on how much you’re willing to spend on your team. Whilst none will make too much of a dent in your cash flow, many business owners find the upfront cost of a MacBook does.
