If you work in an office of any size, you're probably participating in an annual holiday party that includes gift giving. It's a fun time that helps people get to know each other better in a cheerful, celebratory setting. You'll want to find the perfect holiday gifts for those on your list, show your appreciation and stay within the guidelines and budget. Here are some ideas showcasing gifts great for every taste and budget.
Office Gifts for Every Day
The best office gifts are generally those that can be used every day. Consider desk items likely to be used on a regular basis. Fancy letter openers are ideal if you know someone who opens the company mail, and a sturdy box cutter makes a great holiday gift for someone who works in shipping and receiving. Select a set of blank journals for someone who takes a lot of notes. Personalized, engraved pencils and pens would be an ideal gift for someone who who likes to change pens or loses them frequently. Yet another coworker might love shaped paper clips of a favorite dog breed or pet. More suggestions for desktop items include a large calendar to keep track of appointments and deadlines, letter trays for instant organization, personalized cards or stationery and other office supplies.
Your techie co-workers would probably love receiving gifts that complement their favorite electronics. Consider a small double-sided suction cup stand to keep cell phones close by. As an added plus, most of these stands come in a variety of colors to match different personalities. Antimicrobial lens-cleaning cloths remove smudges on eyeglasses, computer screens and tablets, and a small screwdriver set is perfect for someone who works on computers.
While you're thinking about the perfect gifts, be sure to keep in mind any company policies that exist related to gift giving. Be especially mindful of the fact that what one might think is a funny gag gift may go over well with one coworker, but not another. Choose an office gift that looks great when left out in the open but also serves a purpose and is useful to its recipient.
Thoughtful Office Gifts
Consider holiday gifts the recipients would truly appreciate. When you work with people on a daily basis, you probably get to know their likes and dislikes. This should help you choose the perfect gift, or even engage in conversation to find out what's on his or her holiday wish list. Consider making a donation to a favorite charity in that person’s name, or purchase a gift certificate to a favorite clothing shop. Books by favorite authors or a preferred brand of coffee also make excellent holiday gifts. Choose a warm scarf or hand warmers for someone who feels cold in the office, or a pair of headphones for the music lover.
Gifts for Foodies and More
There are probably quite a few foodies in the office who would really appreciate that type of holiday gift. Candy and other snacks are generally budget friendly, and nearly everyone appreciates a treat. As a precautionary measure, be sensitive to any dietary restrictions or allergies. Gourmet chocolates might be a good choice and a fruit basket or other type of gift basket could be ideal for the health-conscious person. You might also want to include a unique, creative coffee mug or a fun water bottle to accompany the food items. And who wouldn't appreciate a gift certificate to a favorite coffee shop or gift card to a popular lunch or dinner spot.
