Gifts for unique coworkers

Every workplace has one! The unique coworker is quirky, maybe a little bit mysterious and is interested in particular things that the majority of us might not have heard of. When it comes to buying a gift for a unique coworker, go for something that goes a little bit against the grain, but make sure you find out what they like before you buy.

Gifts for fun coworkers

The fun coworker is pretty easy to buy for, and a gag gift or something funny and quirky is absolutely perfect. Check out our selection below to make your fun coworker smile.

Tips for choosing the best gift for your coworker

Consider their interests
When buying a gift for someone you work with you’ll want to ensure you purchase something that they’ll cherish and enjoy.

When you buy something relevant to a person’s interests it not only shows you appreciate them, but that you have also paid attention to their likes and dislikes. For example, if your coworker is a bit of a foodie, then a nice cookbook or a recipe box might be a good gift.

Buy for their age or life stage
Sometimes buying an age-appropriate gift is something you should consider – for example, someone older might really appreciate something like homewares, or if your coworker has recently moved into a new home, a nice housewarming gift like a set of pans or bottle of wine might suffice.

Purchase a gift that suits their personality
Take someone’s personality into account when buying them a gift. If they’re notorious for being upbeat and the life of the office, then a gag-gift or something quirky and gimmicky is fun and appropriate.

If they’re a more serious type, stick with something safe like flowers, wine or a leather bound notebook.
