Top 20 Best Office Gifts

office gifts, gifts for coworkers, office christmas gifts, christmas gifts workers

If you’re lucky, you work with at least a few people you genuinely like, even if you aren’t really close enough for gift giving. Maybe you’ve worked together for years, or they made a key contribution to some shared work this year. Or, perhaps, maybe there’s someone in the office who seems uncomfortable, so you’d like to do a little something to make them feel like they belong and that you notice them.

Giving office gifts is the kind of thing you do just because you genuinely love the act of gifting. You want to find a way to make everyone in your work environment cheerier. And besides, you know they all have desk space, so a silly trinket could help liven the place up a bit. These are the folks for whom you really don’t have to get anything, but you want to show them that you appreciate their presence in your life.

If you’re shopping for your coworkers for any occasion, consider our list of the top 20 best office gifts.


1. Sugru Moldable Glue

office gifts, gifts for coworkers, office christmas gifts, christmas gifts workers

(Sugru)

The modern office is a jungle of cables for every manner of device. Many folks have two monitors, all their computer peripherals, and a phone charger. If any of those wires is starting to look frayed at the seams, this is the simple office gift to give. Sugru is self-setting rubber that bonds to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and even some fabric. Once it sets, it becomes a dishwasher safe and is a good insulator for electric cords. You can also use it to hang things on the wall by forming it into adhesive hooks. It comes in black and white, seen here, as well as a multi-color pack.

2. Rocketbook Wave Smart Notebook

office gifts, gifts for coworkers, office christmas gifts, christmas gifts workers

(Rocketbook)

At least once a week, I’m in a meeting away from my desk where I need to take notes. Be it a client handoff call or a brainstorming session, I usually have to jot a few things down. This notebook belongs to the next generation of writing things down. By using the companion app, you can use your smartphone to instantly beam your handwritten notes to any cloud-based service like Dropbox, Google, or Evernote. Then, once you’ve stored and shared them, you can pop this notebook in the microwave to erase it and start fresh. That’s only possible if you’re using Pilot FriXion pens, but it’s still a pretty amazing innovation.

3. Blomus Notepaper Roll Holder

(Blomus)

If the above approach is too involved and high-tech for your office mates’ note-taking purposes, consider this simple idea. I tend to use Post-It Notes for jotting down little reminders, but this often leads to running out of space quicker than I’d like. With this, notes can go on for as long as they need to and more writing room is always on tap. Grab a few rolls of calculator paper and they’ll be good to go. This device is also wall mountable.

(Parker)

If the above two items reminded you that we’re still doing a lot of writing even in this digital age, you’re probably thinking about writing implements now. And while you could leave your coworker to rely on whatever they can find in the supply closet, giving them a nice pen is also an option. Parker is the standard-bearer for worthwhile pens and this one comes with an entire kit to make the most of it. The implement itself is a matte black and gold fountain pen with excellent balance. It comes with four ink cartridges, extra ink, a bottled ink converter for easy refills, and a cleaning cloth.

5. Moodycards Mood and Practical Flip-Over Messages

(Moodycards)

Speaking of scribbling messages, these desktop mood cards serve the dual purpose of being practically useful and amusing. The set comes with 30 pre-made cards including “Out to Lunch”, “Longest Day Ever”, “Save Me” and more. They also include a few blanks and a dry erase marker so the recipient can craft their own clever messages. I’d use mine to indicate if I was on vacation or perhaps what work cycle I was in, like final deliverables or production or something along those lines. Although, I have to admit, the simplicity of the pre-made “Super Busy” one almost always applies.

7. Knock Knock Fortune Dispenser

(Knock Knock)

While you could go the fairly standard route of giving a joke deli number ticket dispenser, or even the classic number grenade, this silly little gift offers something to the person waiting for your attention. This ticket-taking box is full of 100 fortunes for anyone who may stray past your desk. Give this to someone who is either too busy or too clueless to give a real answer when folks visit their desk, so at least they’ll come away with something.

(BookFactory)

Speaking of busy people, there is still no good replacement for a day planner notebook. Computers and smartphones do an okay job, assuming they sync correctly and actually alert you when you ask them. It’s proven that the act of writing something down reinforces memory, so keeping a physical version of your appointments is still the best way to ensure you don’t miss anything. Comes with all kind of other interesting information including North American time zones, first aid details, weights and measures conversion charts, and more.

9. Verilux HappyLight Liberty Personal, Portable Natural Spectrum Energy Lamp

office gifts, gifts for coworkers, office christmas gifts, christmas gifts workers

(Verilux)

Office dwellers tend to get depressed in the darker months of the year, owing in large part to the lack of UV light to keep the body operating at peak. If you’ve noticed a coworker’s mood or productivity dipping, you might be able to give them a boost with a personal natural spectrum light. This one, called the HappyLight, emits 5,000 LUX for moderate UV output in daily use conditions. This will also help to combat jet lag, too, so give one to a salesperson who travels all the time. A really excellent way to combat the 2:15 productivity dip, too.

(Vector)

It’s happened to all of us at some point: spilling a totally full cup of beverage all over the desk. Depending on what you do for a living, this could be a real disaster, nevermind the normal threat of potentially destroying your computer. This high-end clip-on cup holder will remove the threat of that all together. Good for mugs, cans, cups of various sizes, and travel vessels, this little foldable device will keep your liquids out of your way. It folds down when not in use and can be clipped with one hand, similar to a guitar capo. You can also get much cheaper versions, but they aren’t quite as elegantly designed.

11. Lasko 6435 Designer Series Ceramic Oscillating Heater with Remote Control

office gifts, gifts for coworkers, office christmas gifts, christmas gifts workers

(Lasko)

Have you ever noticed that no one in an office can agree on a comfortable temperature? Partly this is down to biology, but there also seems to be no good setting for a large, open office space. People by the windows will always be too warm or too cold, while people in the middle tend to be the opposite. In my office, plenty of people use space heaters to regulate the temperature of their desk area. This one is particularly nice and includes the touch of design, as well as oscillation. There’s a seven hour timer with automatic shut-off, which, wouldn’t you know it, just about covers a workday. If you don’t want to spend quite this much, there are, of course, cheaper options.

Even better if you can remind someone of the outdoors while they’re staring at spreadsheets all day. This four print set is based on botanical illustrations of pine cones from 1887. They’ve got kind of a mid century feel and give off a calming vibe. These come without the frames, but you can grab those cheaply enough.

Usable in the folded or flat configuration, you can hide this little guy in your desk until you need to work out that crease that formed while you sat at your desk all day.
