With Christmas just around the corner, office cubicles are soon going to be noisy with talk about the company Christmas party. If you’re the type who likes to give out a little something to colleagues for Christmas, here are a few ideas that may or may not be cheaper than the typical Christmas gifts (fruit cakes, we’re looking at you):
Cartoon food, cute animals, pop culture characters, iconic paintings, quirky symbols—name it and you can find a pair of socks printed with those. It’s an upbeat take on socks that is a far cry from the groan-inducing gift that it once was. Get your colleagues a pair that reflects their personality, and it’s surely bound to put smiles on their faces and keep their feet warm in the chilly weather.
Mason Jar Desserts
If you’re the type to get creative in the kitchen, follow a recent trend and bake up a batch of desserts. Buy small jars in bulk and fill those up for your colleagues to try. Not only will you be able to brag about your baking skills, you’ll also save them from the common fruit cake.
If you want to get your colleagues something that will be useful in the office, consider getting them sanitizers for Christmas. In recent years, mini sanitizers have been in trend and there are tons of outlets that sell them in bulk and in a lot of various scents. Bonus points if you get them while they’re on sale. Your colleagues will definitely thank you for thinking about keeping your office hygienic.
Last but not least, you can get your colleagues some mints. Another gift that will be useful for days in the office, you can save up on cash and time and still personalize this gift by buying a big bag of mints and some little jars in bulk. It’s perfect for last minute preparations. Just pour the mints into the jars and wrap a ribbon around it. Voila! No one will notice that you rushed this gift.
