Ideas For Coworker Gifts

Gift-giving is one of the best feelings, especially when thought is put into the act. Whether you are in the office or working remotely, your teammates deserve to feel valued. A coworker gift doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, just showing that you are thankful for all their help over the year is more than enough. Consider these Christmas gift ideas for coworkers and colleagues this holiday season.

What gift buying route are you taking this holiday season?

Yum!

Anything food-related is always a good idea. Chocolates or Edible Arrangements are perfect examples. These are gifts to take home and share with the family so you can’t really go wrong. Just make sure you’re aware of potential food allergies (and preferences!) before you make any purchases. Fine coffees and teas also make for great team building gift ideas. What better gift to give than caffeine?!

Get personal.

A personalized gift is a nice gesture and a great option because it will be so unique. It will show that you put some thought into what you purchased. Personalizing practical items such as cups or mugs, travel accessories like luggage tags, or even a business card holder are great examples of this. Custom SWAG as a coworker gift is always a favorite.

Spruce up the office.

Office accessories are perfect because there’s a never-ending need for better organization and interesting decor at a desk. Try finding statement desk toppers that will spark conversations for the people you buy for. Paperweights, stationery sets and even writing utensil holders all make for useful coworker gifts. Think about things people don’t usually buy for themselves but are actually quite useful.

What to do?

Hobby and experience-related gifts are a great buy if you have a good understanding of what your coworker or boss does with their spare time, out of work. You can opt for gifts relating to and ranging anywhere from sports to a favorite alcoholic beverage mixology kit. Movie and concert tickets are great coworker gift ideas, too!

For example, if you know your coworker loves their dog, a bandana or toy would be a great gift. These types of gifts show your coworkers that you hear what they tell you about their personal life and genuinely care.

DIY

Show your creativity here with a do-it-yourself gift. Pick any theme and make a gift basket. Throw together a basket for foodies, gardeners, book readers, outdoors lovers, or movie buffs. The list is endless so just choose a topic and go from there. These baskets show you’ve put time and care into your gift.

Gift-giving can be nerve-wracking but, don’t let it get to you this year. One of these ideas will be sure to win your gift recipient over!
