Five Gift Ideas under $25 that your Co-workers would Love to receive this Christmas

Ever since I started my first office job, I kind of feel like it’s a thing to buy your coworkers mini presents?! Maybe it’s the media’s influence on me but I mean, I like my coworkers and want to treat them back for:

  1. Hiring me (I am indebted to them, tbh) 
  2. Accepting me into their little family (That’s different from #1, just to be clear). 

So while I was brainstorming what to get them, I thought I’d make this a fun little post to help me decide as well.

1.  Handcream (with a recovering twist)

When you work in an office, filing papers all day- you’re bound to have a paper cut sooner or later. That’s why I thought it’d be a great idea to gift them one of the most essential winter .. well, essentials: handcream. Hand Chemistry is something that I’ve been using since last year and it is simply amazing. I mean, my hands aren’t as intense compared to the photo that they advertise, but I do notice a huge difference on the texture of my hands.

It’s $7 CAD for 30ml/ $20 for 100ml and $39 for 120ml if you’re trying to high-key hint that your coworker has crusty hands- which I’m definitely going to be doing.

2. Candles

Although candles are kind of like perfume- they’re subjective and very personal, you can’t go wrong with a classic Christmast scent. There are a TON of promotions at Bath & Body Works (literally monthly/weekly… daily?) and their candles are something that everybody and their mom’s want for Christmas. (I just checked, and their 3-wick candles are down to $12.50 today! Go check it out here!). Get one for your coworker and pray that they’ll light it in the office – that’s a win-win, amiright?

3. Christmas Ornaments

Whether or not your coworker celebrates Christmas or not, I’m pretty sure they’ll have something to hang ornaments on in their house! Anthropologie has amazing unique ornaments that are honestly my go-to-place for me to find quirky pieces. Here’s a couple that caught my eye when I was looking for cute options:

4. Desk Calendar / 2018 Planner

 New year, new me – right? As the new years are approaching, why not help your coworkers add some life to their desk with a pretty calendar? Indigo has a couple of really nice calendars at or under $20 such as these ones:

(x) Get them something made with quality materials such as this planner from Moleskine!

5. Literally anything from the Drake General Store +

Ever since the Drake General Store pop up at the Bay became a thing and is there to stay- I’ve been eyeing down every product whenever I pass by it. It’s a great store to pick up presents at! Here’s a couple random finds that might suit your coworkers’ needs haha:
