When you’re not at home with your family, you’re at work with your office family. Spread some joy by shopping my gift guide for co-workers. Whether you’re spending under $20 or investing in luxury gifts, it’s easy to show you care towards the people you work with everyday. Office work life gives you the most unlikely friendships. I love seeing younger people bond with older co-workers. I remember working with people twice my age in medical sales and earning their respect as peers.
Giving The Right Gift
Tailoring gifts to be caring yet professional is the battle during the holidays. What do you get Sally from two cubicles over for Christmas? Maybe you’re not sure if you should even get her a gift. The best advice is to not show up empty-handed. There’s nothing worse than receiving a gift from someone that didn’t even make it onto your list. It’s awkward and it happens every year.
When it comes to picking gifts, think about their lifestyle or what they would want at work. Parents always could use a bootle of wine or a gift card to a nice restaurant for date night. If you’re strictly colleagues and don’t know a whole lot about their interests, gift them something for their desk. A space heater for the one that’s always cold and complaining about the ac, and a fan for those who like it colder. The fan for me, no doubt. For those looking for masculine gifts, I put together a Gift Guide For Him if you want to find something special for a male co-worker. I mean, the customizable bobblehead would make the best desk decor.
The keychain hot sauce bottle that I found is too funny. Reminds me of Penny and her obsession with Sriracha! If anything on this list sparked your interest, do you co-worker a favor and forward this blog to them. Tell them to shop for you with my gift guide for co-workers!
