Office Gifts - the perfect offerings
Have you wracked your brain, gone to different stores over and over
again and bought a pen yet again for your boss on Christmas? Admit it.
Some of us just find it too hard to get the right gifts for our
colleagues or clients at work. It is not the matter of finding a decent
gift that is completely difficult but it sure is tough to find the
right kind of gift, which truly reflects your emotions.
may be shopping for a holiday or birthday gift, or just a token to show
your gratitude. Your pocket may be really small or as large as a Swiss
bank locker. Today the options available are so fantastic that you will
be able to find the perfect gift for your colleague, junior, boss or
client. Unfortunately, it has to be said that the options are so varied
that it may leave you even more confused than before.
to a perfect gift is the plain and simple word ‘personal’. Although
they are probably just your “colleagues” but they are still people you
work with and spend so much time with. You should get your dollar’s
worth. But personal does not mean lingerie or underpants – unless of
course it is a pre-planned prank gift! Always remember to not cross the
thin line between humor and professionalism.
A few weeks before
the actual gift buying, try to find out what your colleagues’ interests
are if you do not already know it. If you purchase something related to
their interests, they are bound to love it irrespective of the money
A person who loves reading could be presented with a
book in their subject of interest. Or a person who loves food could be
given a basket of coveted cookies or a gourmet basket. Or a bottle of
good wine for your boss or an impressive box of cigars for someone who
would enjoy it. The options are endless and the gifts you choose can
come close to perfection just as long as you know what would impress
But there may still be those who you don’t quite know and
you may be clueless about their interests. Ask around but if that does
not help, you still have several options open. Gift baskets of all
sorts including corporate gift baskets are available and you can get
them personalized too. Personalized souvenirs or decorative items for
someone’s office space are also great options. These neutral gifts can
be easily obtained even if you are shopping last minute.
