Hello masses of the inter-webs!
‘Tis the season to start scouring department stores!
We’re all looking for cost effective, original gifts we know will make an impact, but more importantly won’t get re-gifted to your co-workers distant cousin. Try to be enthusiastic! I know it sounds like a lot, but please don’t fret. I’m here to help.
The office is our home away from home, correct? So for shoppers looking to make a gesture of good will, I suggest shopping small. Small office supplies with tons of personality can really brighten someone’s day or at the very least fill-up the best holiday gift bag in existence. If you’re looking to make a kind gesture in the workplace, might I suggest one or two of these? They don’t cost very much.
Paper clip chicks!
Fruit Sticky’s! Sweet as can be and practical!
This little guy’s a touch edgier, but his gold finish is pretty chic. Yet another small gesture that your office fashionista will love you for. Ditch that drab staple remover, it’s been done before.
Sweet as daisies.
HUGE POST-ITS! I know in my office they made a big splash. I can’t quite say why but they seem to get the message across a little better than a regular sticky. (I was told that I’d appreciate them when I’m older.)
This little guy is not only extremely classy, but he has tons of personality and is a riot! I would say he’s probably the perfect co-worker.
Funny paperweight magnet combo.
A filing tote! This little lady keeps all your documents not only organized, but safe and sound while you’re on the go. Amazingly practical and super cute
(Color options available)
Music cube. When the boss is away the tunes will play.
A fancy pen. For important people with important signatures.
If you prefer to think a little bigger, try offering a universally yummy snack! We all need nourishment, so try taking into account any favorite office lunch or breakfast spots.
Try catering, sharing is caring.
Big or small you can’t go wrong with an edible arrangement. They brighten up a table instantly and are the perfect share-able snack.
Gift cards anyone? It’s the practical gift that keeps on giving.
We love our co-workers but eventually they have to go home. Wish them well with a good time after hours.
Movie theater tickets are universal and sure to show someone a good time. Take this after hour’s gift as an idea. Try your best to be creative when thinking of fun after hour’s hangouts.
Go forth and prosper.
