Apple brings holiday cheer to employees with custom Incase backbacks

Apple is no stranger to rewarding its employees. Along with special perks around the office, employees usually end up with a unique Apple-themed gift toward the end of the year as a reward for their hard work. This year, it appears Apple employees will get their hands on a custom Incase backpack featuring a white Apple logo.

Along with the backpack, employees were also treated with a special letter thanking them for their work:

This is our gift to you. But it can never compare to what you've given.

What does it take to give a gift? It takes thoughtfulness. Compassion. And sometimes, sacrifice of your time, your talent, and your heart,

These are the gifts you give: kindness, knowledge, humor, and patience. You give them when you cover for a teammate, so they can go on a much-deserved break. When you send an email recognizing a job well done. Or when you grab an extra coffee for a friend before you clock in.

You give these gifts whether it's the beginning of the season, or the end of a very long day. You do it over, and over, and over again.

Amazing products are designed in Cupertino. Amazing moments are made by you. These moments are your gift this holiday season—to your customers, to your team, and to the world.

Thank you.

According to a report by 9to5Mac, the backpacks have already started appearing on eBay, with at least one fetching a price of $99.
