Thinking of the best Christmas gift ideas for coworkers is a tough job.
While coming up with endless ideas for your family and friends is already tough, doing it for colleagues is so much worse.
While you might be close to some colleagues, the struggle is real when you draw the name of someone you barely know out of the Secret Santa hat. What do they even like to do outside of work?!
What you need are gifts that are practical, affordable, and have zero chances of offending anyone.
I’m not gonna lie, they can be difficult to find – but it’s certainly not impossible. We’ve rounded up the best gifts for your colleagues — from your picky boss, to the colleague you only talk to three times a year.
These gifts aren’t for those looking for a meaningful and sentimental item, but instead I’ve gone down the practical route.
I’ve found one present idea for someone who’s always glued to their phone, one for your colleague that spends hours chatting in the kitchen and a couple for those co-workers you barely know – so whoever you draw from that hat, I’m sure you’ll find something on the list to solve your struggles.
Pssttt…many brands are currently holding Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. For all the sales you need to know about, check out our handy guide.
