So the jingle bells are ringing in your ears and work days with eggnog breaks are bearing down on the calendar. With practically every office since the start of time taking part in Secret Santa (and, let’s face it, the occasional please-promote-me gift to the boss), it’s time to think about your gift for the office Christmas party.
No matter whose name you draw from the hat, we’ve prepped a couple cost-friendly ideas that don’t involve a pack of pens or the ever-predictable Santa hat.
Top 5 Gifts for Your Office Christmas Party
Christmas Gift Idea 1: The Bookkeeper
For the introverted, the creative, or the just plain sick of staring at numbers, give the gift of colour with a subscription to Sock It Up. There’s nothing like cheeky patterns and toes wrapped in cartoon bananas to brighten up those bookkeeping days!
Christmas Gift Idea 2: The Receptionist
For the sweet face of office greetings, bizarre phone calls, and creepy delivery men, send your office receptionist something without a tax invoice tacked to the front. Cupcakes from My Plate Clean Treats don’t just come in tasty flavours like Nutella, peanut butter, and lemon & coconut – they’re also a guilt-free indulgence to negate those cheeky Christmas calories.
Christmas Gift Idea 3: The Manager
Whether they’re always on the go or always yelling at their phone, what’s the bet that your manager could use a coffee boost in their busy schedule? Earn some brownie points with a bag of Elixir Single Origin coffee, a Brisbane favourite guaranteed to tick the ‘gift I need’ box.
Christmas Gift Idea 4: The Boss
No one feels the rat race on Christmas quite like the head honcho of an office business, that’s for sure. Give them a reprieve (or at least the knowledge that January will be kinder) with a 10 class pass to Urban Bliss yoga.
Christmas Gift Idea 5: The Colleague
With the traditional seafood platter about to press the Christmas-time bank account for most, why not make it easier with a gift voucher from The Fishery? Set up with freshly-caught seafood and related shopping items to save the trip, this is one Christmas bonus that Santa can’t steal away.
