Coming up with gift ideas for coworkers can be difficult, whether you’ve known them for a long time or only see them onscreen once a week. Regardless of how much time you spend with them, it makes total sense to express your gratitude for all of their hard work and support throughout the year.
Useful Christmas Gift Ideas
This holiday season, give your coworkers something thoughtful and fun to lift their holiday spirits. You don’t have to settle for obvious coworker gifts like phone chargers, mugs, or pen holders. You can still buy them something fun or interesting while keeping it professional. To help you tick this off your to-do list—and to help your recipient score something a little more uplifting than a conventional gift card—we’ve carefully curated a list of gift ideas to help kickstart their new year with a dash of creativity for a more organised year ahead.
Diaries and Planners
Looking for a present for a coworker who enjoys goal-setting, planning, and execution? We have the ideal gift idea. The year 2024 is approaching quickly, which means it’s time to get a new diary and planner. With 2024 diaries and planners, you can help your coworkers stay focused, productive, and on top of their daily tasks after their wonderful Christmas break.
We’re all used to seeing two types of coworkers at every meeting: those who take notes and those who are busy doodling. In any case, make sure that your friend has some new and unique stationery supplies. Colourful pens and highlighters can instantly brighten their workspace, while a to-do list notepad or some vibrant sticky notes can give them quick access to notes when taking phone messages or jotting down notes and reminders.
A tech-savvy notebook? Yes, why not? Whatever you can do to help save the environment. Rocketbook provides a classic pen-and-paper experience and would make an excellent gift as your coworker can easily upload handwritten notes to popular cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, and others without losing track of them. It also wipes clean with a damp microfibre cloth, which comes with a smart pen. This book has smart pages that digitally record everything handwritten for clarity, so they can keep using the same notebook indefinitely.
Does your colleague need a little extra help keeping their desk organised? Give them a thoughtful desk accessory to make them feel at ease; whether they are working from home or in the office. The LED Desk Lamp can help reduce eye strain and headaches, while an ergonomic mouse or wrist pad can ensure they work for long hours without any strain. If your coworker is environmentally conscious, you can surprise them with a 100% recyclable desk organiser to store their bits and bobs and help them in creating an environmentally friendly workspace.
Technology can also be an excellent gift for team members who would benefit from a more efficient work environment. We have curated some budget-friendly ideas for your tech-obsessed coworker. A laptop case is a useful accessory for protecting valuable electronics while on-the-go.
Sometimes it gets difficult to concentrate on important tasks if you work in an open office environment. Help your coworker concentrate on their work while listening to music with noise-cancelling headphones, instead of focusing on the conversation in the next cubicle.
If you’re looking for a gift idea that you know will be used and appreciated, ergonomic resources are an excellent choice. Ergonomic keyboards and mice are excellent and can quickly become a staple in a coworker’s setup, ensuring their wrist feels supported while sitting at the computer all day.
We all know how much Australians enjoy a nice treat! According to Euromonitor International’s Voice of the Consumer: Lifestyles Survey 2022, nearly 40 percent of Australians snack during the day and are adopting a more flexible eating pattern. Surprise your colleague with a Christmas gift hamper to show your appreciation for their hard work and dedication.
Deliver a vibrant comfort gift hamper for a sense of well-being and a significant energy boost over the holiday season. The hamper is full of chocolates, artisan crackers, flavorful nuts, popcorn, and other surprises for snacking and sipping. It’s a small gesture to make them feel connected and appreciated even though when you aren’t physically together.
