It’s the time of year for gift giving, including your friends and frienemies in the office. While we’d like to think that we’re “close” with all our working girls and guys, be sure not to go too overboard when getting holiday gifts for those in the office. Our firm has a “secret santa” or “white elephant” every year, and we have to buy our chosen person a gift under $25 to share before our office holiday party. The hope is to be thoughtful, but still fun and not too personal. Below are a few budget-friendly ideas for any office holiday gifts or friends you would like to treat this season.
Kate Spade “Deborah Dot” journal – $28/Crane & Co. for J.Crew note cards – $23/J.Crew Magic wallet – $23/iPhone glitter case – $23/Anthropologie Monogram mug – $8 each/Julep nail color in Barbara – $14/C Wonder wine stoppers – $22/Chalkboard piggy bank – $25
Also keep in mind it is a good idea to purchase a little something additional for your superiors in the office – even if it is just a card. Show your appreciation for the care they took in your career this year!
