The holidays provide plenty of gift-giving opportunities in the workplace, from Secret Santa and white elephant gift exchanges to simply wanting to wish someone a Merry Christmas with a thoughtful present.

Here are some of our favorite ideas for making your coworkers’ holiday season extra special.

Subscriptions, Memberships, And Gifts Of Service

Think of something that makes your coworker happy. Is it reading? Puppies? Wine? Chances are you’ll find a subscription or membership-based service specifically tailored to his or her interests.

Gifting Idea

Consider gifting an entire year of a subscription or membership you know they’ll love.

  • Go in on the gift with at least 11 fellow co-workers.
  • Assign a month of the year for each person in the group to “sponsor,” and purchase 12 Christmas greeting cards.
  • Have each co-worker write a personal christmas note on the inside of their assigned card, and label the envelopes with each month of the year.
  • At the beginning of each month, have the recipient open the respective card to read a personalized message that reminds them of your gift all year long.

Make It budget-friendly

If you’re going solo on a gift or can’t afford a year-long subscription, think of short-term options that make a big impact. Do you live somewhere that gets snow during the holidays? Think about gifting a few months’ worth of snow-shoveling services for your coworker’s home driveway.

Maybe you work with someone who’s talked about wanting to check out the new yoga or cycling studio in town. Gift a few classes so they can try it risk-free before deciding on a membership.

Travel-themed Gifts

Do you know a coworker in need of a vacation? Maybe you overheard Beth from Accounting talking about her upcoming trip to Cancun. Even if your co-worker’s getaway isn’t until next summer, there are plenty of ways to give the gift of travel this Christmas.

Gifting Idea

Gift cards and vouchers for airlines, park admissions, and sightseeing tours are great options for group-gifting, but if you go this route, consider presenting the gift in a different way.

  • Throw off the recipient by making them think they’re receiving a tangible gift.
  • Frame the gift card or voucher, place in a gift bag, or box it with wrapping paper.
  • Not only will they be surprised, but they can use the frame for a photo from their special trip.

Make It budget-friendly

Get your team, department or a group of coworkers to go in on something for your boss or associate. Personalized passport book covers and luggage tags are thoughtful and useful gifts that are easy on the wallet.

Holiday Office Party Gifts

If you’ve ever participated in a Secret Santa or other gift exchange, you know that there’s usually a rule about how much you’re allowed to spend. Working within a dollar range can be tricky, especially if you’re in search of a gift that will suit anyone in the office.

Make It budget-friendly

If you don’t want to spend any money but still want to get in on the fun, consider an alternative, handmade gift. Write down a dozen or more of your favorite uplifting, funny, and inspirational quotes on small pieces of paper. Fold the pieces, put them in a mason jar, and label it “Monday Pick-Me-Ups.” Your coworker can start off each week with a smile.

Buy A Digital Gift Card

In a rush? No time to visit stores in search of the perfect gift? Pair a digital gift card with a personalized Christmas ecard, for fast delivery to the recipient. Simply select the retailer you’d like to purchase a gift card from then you’ll enter the name and email of the recipient and send. If you’re an AG member you only pay the amount of the egift card.
