Gift giving can get overwhelming this time of year, but you do not have to spend big bucks to give thoughtful presents to your work friends. Here are some gift ideas to get your colleagues for the holidays that cost very little and will make you the hit of the office!


Sweet Treats

An easy, go-to gift is treating your coworkers to handmade sweets during the holidays. Grab a few mason jars and fill them with various candies like skittles, licorice, chocolate covered peanuts, etc. You could even assemble your own brownie jars or hot cocoa kits. This is one gift idea everyone is sure to enjoy!


Handy Must-Have

If you have a professional work environment, consider gifting colleagues a utilitarian present. This wallet-sized multi-tool has 11 functions including a saw blade, screwdriver, bottle opener, ruler, and more. Your coworkers will be grateful to get something they can actually use!


White Elephant Gifts

If your office environment is more laid back and fun, consider a white elephant gift for each of your colleagues. You can buy all of them something silly (like these inflatable crowns) or you can search for a present that relates to each person. Search thrift stores for fun finds, or take advantage of a good opportunity to clean a forgotten closet at home. You’ll be surprised how beloved some white elephant gifts can become after the laughing stops.


Office Swag

These small gift ideas bring style and serenity to your coworker’s office space. This faux plant whose leaves are actually pens will brighten any desk. These keyboard skins will protect laptop computer keys as well as make the individual’s laptop colorful and stand out. They come in multiple colors! Inexpensive photo frames are another fun idea; you can take it one step further by adding a photo of you and your coworker if you have one.


Whether you are obligated to buy something for everyone in the office or you just really want to give back to your amazing coworkers, these gifts to get your colleagues for the holidays are just what you need!
