Holiday Gift Guide For The Office

Hello beauties! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Today we have a special Holiday Gift Guide guest post from the lovely Christie of The Closet by Christie.  She has provided us with a special feature for our Holiday Gift Guide… Something I know I definitely struggle with every year! Today, we have a gift guide that goes over everything you could possibly need to know about buying gifts for co-workers and people at the office.  So, without further ado, here she is ladies and gentlemen!

It’s that time of year, again! The holidays, better known as the gifting season. It’s fun and easy to shop for people you know, like your close friends and family. That perfect item in the store jumps out at you and you think ‘oh, so and so would love this!’ But what about shopping for colleagues at the office? You may be new to the office or you may not have connected with these colleagues on a personal level. You don’t want to be the only fool that shows up without gifts, but you don’t want to go overboard either. You know you need the perfect, professional little something but what is that? I’ve learned a thing or two over these past few years of office gifting.

Holiday Gift Guide for the Office

 

Here’s my Holiday Gift Guide for the Office!

1- Ornaments: This is a wonderful gift for anyone. If you know your colleagues personalities and interests well, get them something they’ll love and may be able to use year-round as a decoration. If you work beside a sports fanatic, get a sport-themed ornament. If you’re less familiar with them, get a standard holiday-themed one. This is an affordable gift that shows you were thinking of them. And trust me, there’s an ornament out there for everyone these days. My favorite place to get gorgeous ornaments is Pier 1! Check out Pier 1’s Christmas Ornaments.

2- Glassware Baskets: One of my favorite, easy, go-to gifts is glassware baskets. It makes for such a quick, neutral gift. The most affordable way to do this is by getting a coffee mug and filling it with candy, like chocolate kisses, and wrapping it in cellophane with a pretty ribbon or bow. If you want to get fancy, fill the mug with k-cups or coffee samples! For the head honcho (aka your boss), I recommend getting a pretty serving dish and filling it with whatever you desire. I think some gift bag fluff and candies is sufficient. I found some lovely and affordable glassware at Kohl’s. Check it out: Kohl’s Holiday Glassware.

3- Wine Accessories: Depending on your company culture and colleagues, you may want to consider wine accessories. I’ve seen some of the cutest wine bottle outfits! They have winter sweaters, winter coats, a Mrs. Claus dress, etc. In addition, there’s always bottle stoppers and wine glass charms. You could get festive for the holidays or go with a normal, everyday one. Check out the following stores for some really great, affordable ones: Bed Bath & Beyond Wine OutfitsBed Bath & Beyond Wine Glass CharmsBed Bath & Beyond Wine Stoppers, & Kohl’s Wine Outfits.

4- Baked Goods: Everyone likes a yummy treat, right? For the bakers out there, pick up a few holiday tins and show off your skills by baking your famous peppermint bark or melted snowman cookies! For those that don’t bake, like me, head over to your neighborhood grocery store and buy something. They don’t have to know it wasn’t homemade! Check out these great recipes from fellow bloggers: Baked by Rachel’s Peppermint Bark and Somewhat Simple’s Melted Snowman Cookies.

5. Gift Cards: This is definitely the most effortless option! I recommend getting coffee gift cards so it makes more sense to add a smaller amount to it. I think $5 is the perfect amount, especially if you have a number of people to shop for. Starbucks has THE cutest gift cards, but Dunkin Donuts is another option. Choose what you think your colleagues will want to use!

What are you getting your colleagues for the holidays? I will likely get a combination of the above!
