Want to be the best office Santa? Here are 5 things to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect holiday gift for the office.
Be a cheapskate.
Lavish gifts are inappropriate for the workplace, and embarrassing to receive. You are just trying to be nice and spread a little cheer, not make their whole year.
Make it personal, but not too personal.
Your gift should show that you think well of your recipient, cross the line into impropriety. I think the best office holiday gifts are items that can be used at work, such as a nice pen set or personal organizer. Baked goods and a store gift cards are other great options.
Don’t forget your assistant.
It’s always a good idea to show your appreciation for support staff.
If you aren’t buying gifts for the whole office, be discrete with your gift-giving. Lunch is a great time to exchange gifts.
No gag gifts.
Why take the risk of giving offense? A small, sincere gift is always the way to go. Save the gags for your frat brothers.

Secretaries Day, also known as Administrative Professional Day and Administrative Assistants Day, is this Wednesday. Hope you got your assistant to pencil it in! Of course, the days of when the administrative professional’s day was limited to scheduling, typing and other clerical duties have long passed — if they ever existed. No less than the Federal Government confirms it: today’s administrative professionals do work once reserved for managers and executives, including corporate event planning, staff training, research and more. In short, your office could not survive without the efforts of administrative professionals.
Great gifts for Administrative Professional Day.
Since administrative professionals perform such vital work for relatively modest pay, it is only right and proper to take a day to express your thanks. A small gift would not be remiss either! After all, everyone loves getting presents! OnTimeSupplies.com offers discount pricing on thousands of Pink Ribbon gifts
that will show the secretaries and assistants your appreciation for their hard work — and support a variety of great breast cancer awareness organization.
You’ll also find a wide variety of other cool office supplies that make great Secretaries Day gifts. And thanks to their speedy delivery, you can order your Secretaries Day gifts today and get them tomorrow.
Don’t let Secretaries Day pass without showing your appreciation.
Even if your wallet and office budget have been hit particularly hard by this (seemingly never-ending) recession, you can still celebrate Administrative Assistants Day and let your staff know how much you appreciate their hard work. If nothing else, pick up a Administrative Professional Day card or two before you go into work Wednesday. Your administrative assistants will appreciate your thoughtfulness, and part of your job is keeping your staff motivated and happy!
