Co-Worker/Group Gifts for the Holidays


I was visiting the blog, Bookworm1858, on Sunday and she was asking for ideas on gifts to give co-workers. If you work in an office or similar environment, you can have quite a bit of people to give to in order to not leave anyone out. People in the comments section had some fun ideas, and I thought I'd share one type of co-worker gift I thought people could use! These would be great for book clubs, dinner party favors, etc.

1) First, there is the item above from The Dating Divas. They have all sorts of great printables and gift ideas. While this says Husband Survival Kit, it can easily be a Work Survival Kit. All you need is the fun saying and a bag of M and M's (you can even get the mini bags to make things cheaper!)

2) From the blog The New Professional, they have a Cubicle Survival Kit that includes a list of all sorts of items you could include for your co-workers. Some of the mini items are pretty cheap, especially if you go to Target or a Dollar Store. Gum is a great thing to include because you can buy a pack and divvy them up between bags. Just some ways to save money on these fun packs!


3) I found this image on pinterest. If anyone has the direct link to where it was first posted, let me know! However, I like this idea a lot. You don't have to use anything as fancy as a glass jar, but it's another fun list of survival kit items with the reason each product is included...and each item is pretty cheap, and often comes in a pack so you can make a lot of these!

I was thinking you should do a coworker gift guide since you've made those others (I still have the wedding gifts one bookmarked as I get ready for some weddings next year!) Love these ideas and I'm definitely thinking about incorporating them into my gifts this year.

Loving this post and especially the cubicle survival kit.

I like the cubicle kit, but it's definitely geared toward women. Most of my coworkers are guys, and I doubt they're worried about flyaways.

The gift in the jar looks really cute - I bet you could find some at a good price this time of year.

The gift jar is a cute idea you could include gum and little candies and pens and pencils and highlighters... love the lady bug on it!

These are great ideas. It can be difficult to get the right thing when there are a lot of people to consider. I like that you don't have to spend tons of money but can still hand out something cool. :)

I don't have any co-workers, but I've been on etsy a lot in the past couple days looking at stuff and was thinking of you. You always have the best gift ideas!

This is fantastic... I work in an office, and I was just trying to figure out what to get my employees for Christmas this year. Last year I was lazy and just got them Starbucks gift cards (lazy, I know!). But usually I'm much more thoughtful and this year, I need to step it up again!
