Gift Ideas for co-workers & work colleagues - Best gifts 2017

Gift ideas for co-workers & work colleagues February 2018

If you need a gift for your boss, the receptionist, or your cube-mate, finder.com has found the best gifts ideas for all of your co-workers.

Whether you want to get the boss a present for his birthday or your office is running a Secret Santa gift exchange, at some point you may need to buy presents for your co-workers. Because you know each other primarily in a work environment it’s difficult to think of something personal and thoughtful to get a co-worker. The team at finder.com has put together a guide for buying presents for anyone that you work with. We’ve also sourced some discounts and promo codes so you don’t break the bank trying when you’re buying gifts.

How to choose the best gifts for co-workers

Are you struggling with gift ideas for your co-worker? Are you worried your gift won’t be appreciated, or even liked? Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Position. Consider the position your co-worker holds in the company when choosing gifts. If they are your boss, it might pay to take the time to find out exactly what they would like. If they are in IT, then something tech-inspired might be appropriate.
  • Personality. The personality of the person you’re buying for should always come into consideration when buying gifts. There is no point buying an experience gift for someone who is quiet, or a gag gift for someone who is notoriously serious. Always think about who you are buying the gift for.
  • Age. Someone’s age is also a good thing to think about when choosing gifts. A younger person might like something more fun, or even something useful and practical. If they are older, they might enjoy a nice bottle of wine or housewares.
