Your co-worker's birthday is coming up, and you haven't got a clue what to give them. And yes, you have to get them something because that's just who you are as a person.
We've got you covered.
But first let's have some ground rules. Nothing overly expensive (that iWatch may be cool, but dude, that's too much), or overly personal (no, he doesn't need another towel).
Now that that's settled, check out these awesome gift ideas that'll make your officemates love you a bit more. And sometimes you don't even have to go bankrupt!
They secretly want to receive a "best co-worker ever" coffee mug or maybe something that reflects their personality. Yes, they woke up like that.
Because oftentimes they're out and about attending meetings, answering calls and emails on their smartphones, and well, they don't really have the luxury to plug their chargers anywhere. Trust us, they'll thank you for this, big time.
Wireless Portable Speakers
They sometimes they need a little music to spice up the room, whether they're on their desks, outdoors, or at home, being able to listen to music anywhere will take off a bit of stress from life.
They like to travel? Let them check off (more like scratch) the countries they've been to, with an awesome scratch map. They have a Philippines edition of this too!
Infectious Disease Stress Ball
The only thing that's infectious about this is the laughter it'll ensue once you squeeze it. This out-of-the-ordinary stress ball will definitely help get rid of stress.
Not just the ordinary ones, but the awesome ones like this revolver or pencil end pen holder to show off the quirky side of them.
Universal Travel Adapter
Let them travel hassle free by getting them this universal adapter. No need to buy multiple adapters when traveling abroad!
A Quirky Notebook
Tita Whitney understands their feelings, and she said to write them down, and where's a great place to write them? In a notebook made just for feelings. Available at Quirks.
Memo Pads with a Personality
Won't you love to just receive memos like this? It's pretty funny, like them.
A Witty Greeting Card
You can never go wrong with greeting cards. To make it even funnier, how about getting a witty one.
Their favorite coffee
Ok, so you weren't able to buy any of the aforementioned gifts. You could always go as simple as gift giving could get--buy them their favorite drink from their favorite cafe, have the baristas write a dedication for them, and viola! Instant gratification. And also, you're welcome.
