Gift giving is one of the best feelings, especially when thought is put into the act. Consider these Christmas gift ideas for coworkers and colleagues this holiday season.
What gift buying route are you taking this holiday season?
Anything food related is always a good idea. Chocolates or Edible Arrangements are perfect examples. These are gifts to take home and share with 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?!
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. Personalize practical items such as cups or mugs, travel accessories like luggage tags or even a business card holder are great corporate team building gift ideas. Want to get really original? Check out custom corporate gift options. Custom SWAG is always a favorite.
Spruce up the office.
Office accessories are a great idea 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. Paper weights, stationary 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 perfect to 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. Movie and concert tickets are ideal, too!
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.

Often times, people use this day as a celebration for the arrival of summer.

While you celebrate good food and loved ones, don’t forget to pay your respects to those who have died fighting for our country. Pause, reflect and honor.
