    I need help with some brainstorming, and I am sure someone here will have a genuinely excellent idea...

    I need an idea for something we could get in our new office which will improve staff morale. It doesn't have to improve productivity, although that would be a bonus! Something less than 500 quid. Been told along the lines of a Wii or, as my boss is getting, a decorative model of the star trek enterprise. Something along those lines!

    We have male and female staff before you say stripper or FHUTA or something :p

    I was thinking of maybe a battery of bean bags or something for when you want to have a quick read away from your desk?

    A wii sounds like a good idea, so long as they're allowed to play it. Improved morale will equal improved productivity anyway if it works and you get some of that 'team building' bollocks thrown in for the multiplayer games.

    That and the Addams Family pinball :D
    Probably more than 500 though and pinball tables seem to need repairs with grim regularity.

    Get a Ball pit for the office

    If you don't have room, just fill the cubicles with plastic balls instead

    Whilst not original, a wii seems like the best idea so far

    We're gonna have some ground rules first, ok? No (bleep bleep bleep) or (bleep). And no (bleep) unless you're wearing a (bleep) or you (bleep bleep). If this winds up on the Web, I will (bleep) you in the (bleep).

    Spend it on recruiting someone who does not use cliche's like 'brainstorming' perhaps?

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    I think that has more of a potential to annoy than boost moral.

    Wii sounds like the best idea. Wii, controllers and a 32" tv will easily come in under 500

    Office pet(s)? Not fish because they are rediculously boring but some Degus or Chinhcillas offer a non-stinky alternative that everyone can get involved in.
