One Airline Has The Perfect 'Office Souvenirs' For Your Co-Workers Who Never Take A Vacation

But seriously, use your vacation days ...

The office is a home away from home for way too many Americans. So much so that they never take time off and instead opt to spend that time work, work, working away. 

In fact, more than half American workers (55%) left vacation time unused in 2015, adding up to 658 million unused vacation days, the highest number Project: Time Off has ever reported. 

For all the workaholics in the world who can't seem to stay away from their desk long enough to take a vacation, JetBlue has created "Office Souvenirs" just for you.


Instead of bringing mementos home from far-away destinations that you never go to, you can now order little trinkets for your office décor that remind you and everyone around just how much time you spend there.

All the items in the series are available at JetBlue's online store and range from things such as snow globes to mugs to "human resources"-scented candles and beach towels with a blank spreadsheet printed on them.

The airline has found a unique way to create humor from a rather serious issue. Workaholics account for 5 to 10% of the United States working population, and the behavior is similar to other forms of addiction, including uncontrollable urges to continue engaging in the addictive behaviors despite negative consequences to your physical and mental health, as well as social and family relationships.  

While some may view taking vacations as ditching work priorities, studies have found that traveling does alter your personality for the better like being more spontaneous, less judgmental, more adaptive to change, more outgoing, and more optimistic. All things that could be positive attributes in a work environment.  

But if you'd rather stock your workspace with souvenirs that remind you of the last time there were free bagels, then, by all means, visit JetBlue's online store where you can find an array of items ranging from $5.99 to $15.

"If your last good memory is that time free bagels were left in the break room, we feel for you," says Heather Berko, manager of advertising and content at JetBlue, according to Adweek. "These Office Souvenirs are just our way of reminding everyone there are blue skies and fresh air waiting to provide much happier memories."
