Inexpensive Gifts for Co-Workers

May 7, 2008
Most of us, who work in the corporate world, spend about 8 -10 hours in the office and the inhabitants of the office are our co-workers, with whom we spend almost one half of the working life. Cut to the holiday season, you definitely need to show you appreciation and wish them well .But, the challenge is what gift is appropriate for your male or female co-worker in terms of price and also whom you are giving to as seniority, professionalism and office politics can come into play.

Now since the most of the times you would be giving gifts to your co-workers who are large in number, which means you definitely set yourself a price range as even small numbers can add up a lot when the number of co-workers is huge.

Remember a few golden rules of gift etiquettes in the office and these help you select a nice gift. Set up a price range as expensive gifts at the office can make others uncomfortable. No personal or religious flavor things and always acknowledge the gift that you have received.

Here are a few ideas that make for inexpensive gifts for co-workers.

Get a Christmas Ornament with a year and space for the name of each co-worker on it. A never fail gift for the co-workers.
Another favorite and great gift is a bag of candies and snacks like snickers, Hershey kisses. Make hand made tags for each bag and I am sure your co-worker will love it. I have had lottery tickets given to me as gift. Though, not my favorite but people were happy as it is a change from the traditional gifts.
Homemade Goodies or foods would be good idea especially like bake a cheesecake or bring a turkey. Or home made rum balls. Another favorite is wood crafts and handmade special effect cards printed out from a lot of websites online.

Another thing to remember if you are buying individual gifts for your co-workers make sure to buy different gifts for your male and female co-workers.

For male co-workers, the best is getting each of them a coupon for two rounds of beers at a local pub after hours and they love that. Starbucks gift cards still holds to be the best as it is inexpensive, though I must say it is for both the sexes. Another favorite with the guys is cookies, make some big sized cookies at home and pack them in a nice bowl you get at dollar store.

Inexpensive gifts for female co-workers?? The bets gift is body lotion from body shop. They have it in all price ranges and in all sizes, so choose the one that fits your price range. Another gift which is appropriate is the movie tickets or a blockbuster gift card or a popcorn gift basket.

Choose wisely as it can get tricky giving gifts co-workers but make sure to give gifts on Christmas or other occasions like winning a project or completing a big assignment.
