5 tips for giving the best office holiday gifts

Posted by Frankye at On Time Supplies | Posted in Gift Ideas | Posted on November 30, 2012


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.

Be discrete.

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.
