How to pick the best Christmas gift for everyone at the office

  • Gift for employees. In this case, it’s probably best to buy a generic gift for everyone or spend a little extra time and effort to select a slight variation of the gift for each individual employee. Some examples could be notebooks, coffee mugs, gift cards or treat the team to a holiday lunch or dinner.
  • Gifts for coworkers. Presents like boxed chocolates or wine can be good options. Otherwise, think about something they could use at work. A funny desk calendar or some nice stationery could also be cool gifts.
  • Gifts for your boss. It doesn’t have to be a big-ticket item, just something that lets them know you thought about them this Christmas. Perhaps a gift basket or a bottle of wine is suitable if you know they like fine foods. A desk plant like a succulent is another option. Stationery items like an appointment book or even a portable phone charger can also be great ideas.

What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for coworkers?

If you’d rather make something small for everyone at work, consider these cool ideas:

  • Homemade Christmas goodies. Whether you’re a master candy maker or baker, whip up a batch of your favorite holiday sweets and package them up for each coworker.
  • Mason jar garden. Layer decorative pebbles or rocks at the bottom of a mason jar, then fill it with dirt and plant an herb or other plant your coworkers might like.
  • Personalized mug with a treat inside. Use glitter or permanent markers to personalize each person’s mug, then fill them with goodies like hot chocolate mix and marshmallows or apple cider mix.
