Let us get this straight – unless you are a business owner or possess certain Machiavellian personality traits, there is no way you can choose your co-workers. What you can do as a consolation prize is to befriend them. The truth is that those are the people you are going to go through desert and wilderness, and share both the good and the bad with. The least you can do is to show that you think of them as friends and brothers in arms, and bring some joy into their lives. Let us look at some of the gifts you can use to go all Good Samaritan on them.
Coupon or Voucher
We will start our list with the safest bet. If you do not know what your co-workers are into and you are not sure whether they will like the present you have in mind for them, let them choose their own present instead. It is that easy —just get several gift cards, coupons and vouchers and start spreading love and joy.
Funny Accessory Holder
If you and your co-workers are not involved in some kind of physical labor, chances are that you spend a lot of time stuck in a cubicle. And there is nothing more depressing than a small, cramped cubicle. Bring some joy into this oppressively boring environment by giving your co-workers a funny pen-holder. It will not make their lives much easier, but they will take a look at that holder from time to time and think to themselves with a smile on their face, “That is one really funny holder”.
Countdown to Retirement Clock
Some will laugh, some will feel happy, others will feel miserable, but no one will be able to criticize you for the lack of good will. Be it as it may, keep this present for the co-workers whose number of days until retirement has no more than three digits.
Mug, Glass, or a Water Bottle
The choice is up to you, they all serve the same purpose – to keep your fellow co-worker hydrated. Of course, you can always put some interesting twist by printing a funny quote, inspirational message, picture of their family, or any person or a thing they deeply care about.
A Pair of Headphones
Not every one of us is willing or even capable of working in a noisy environment. Some of us just want to turn up the music to eleven and enjoy the favorite tunes while we are working. Such people will feel very grateful if you give them a pair of loud headphones. Just do not be too frugal. The entire point is that the recipient cannot hear the rest of the team and that the team cannot hear the music. If these requirements are not met, a few more bucks have to be spent.
Button that Produces Funny Sounds
How many times have you wanted to interrupt someone trying to sound “smart” with the “Blah, blah, blah” or “Wha-wha- wha-wha”? Now you can afford your co-workers that pleasure with the Blah! or Wha-Wha button. Seriously though, atmosphere in the office can become very tense from time to time. This is the perfect way to interrupt that tension and prevent something that can easily slip into an argument.
Subscription to a Favorite Streaming Service
Let us conclude this list with the mention that is, in its nature very similar to the first item on our list. Once you find out whether your co-workers are more into music or the movies/TV combo you can just pay them a subscription to a streaming service, and let them choose the content they are going to consume themselves.
Not all of us find the pleasure in our job. Some of us look at our workplaces as a prison. Well, even in a prison you can find a cellmate. Make friends out of your co-workers with some of these gifts and your work hours will be a much more pleasant affair.
