The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means… it’s gifting time! Whether your coworkers are participating in a Secret Santa gift exchange or you’re simply looking to spread Christmas cheer, try these fun gifts for every personality type in the office.
The Type A Coffee-Holic
Everyone’s got at least one of these go-getters in their office. You know who I’m talking about – the ones who are always hustling to get the ball moving while gripping a huge mug of joe. These caffeine-slurping Type A’s motivate everyone around them to give their 110%. Show them your appreciation for their hard work and dedication with these holiday gifts.
Self Stirring Mug: First to the office and last to leave, these workaholics love coffee and hate to waste time. Why not get them a gift that will help them achieve a more streamlined coffee consumption process while fulfilling their daily caffeine needs?
Death Wish Coffee: Don’t forget to fill their new efficiency-minded mug with the world’s strongest coffee. Death Wish Coffee is 200% stronger than regular blends and capable of keeping any ambitious entrepreneur on their toes throughout their 14-hour work day.
Get Shit Done Mug: If the Self-Stirring Mug isn’t your coworker’s style, try this tasteful black matte mug. The incisively bold messaging has been shown to improve productivity by 300%. Also, we know you like keeping it classy in the office.
The Forgetful Genius
At the other end of the spectrum lies the creative dreamer whose ideas always bring something fresh to the business – if they could only remember them. They may be slightly lax in terms of documentation, so let them know you want to hear their amazing ideas by giving them some cool notepads they might actually use during their next epiphany.
Iphone notepad: A notepad on the back of your phone? What year is this? Despite how redundant it may seem (yes, I know you can also type notes on your smartphone), it’s proven that people remember things better when they physically write them down. It can also be faster to just jot something down. Added bonus: Your coworker will always have their brilliant ideas on them for any product strategy or holiday party planning meeting that crops up.
Waterproof Shower Notepad: Phone notepad not cutting it? Someone on the Internet once stated that 70% of creative epiphanies occur in the shower, and are sadly promptly lost during the dressing, eating and rushing to work phases. Well, until they invent waterproof iPhones (I’m still waiting, Apple), you’ve got your forgetful coworkers covered with this waterproof shower notepad.
The Adorkable Gamer
No one brings cheer and fun into the office quite like these lovely folks. They make happy hours and team bonding time exciting by bringing in their favorite board and videogames into the office to share. Show them you share their love for all things geeky and game-related with these cute gifts.
Coup: Coup is a personal recommendation from us here at the FirstJob team. Easy setup coupled with the adrenaline rush of backstabbing your manager or the new intern is unbeatable (☺). Anyone who enjoys playing Mafia or poker-like games will definitely get a kick out of Coup.
Tetris heat change mug: This one’s for the old school gamer in your office. This colorful heat change mug will fill in and transform into a full game of Tetris when any hot beverage is added to the cup. While you’re at it, make sure to grab yourself a matching mug, because who doesn’t love Tetris?
D20 ice mold: Nothing evokes the essence of tabletop gaming like the classic D20 dice. Any fan of games such as Magic or D&D will appreciate this awesome gift with their favorite drink of choice.
