Whether through a Secret Santa gift exchange or by way of genuine appreciation, finding the best gifts for coworkers—ones that are reasonably priced, yet are still more thoughtful than a giant stack of sticky notes and a Starbucks gift card—can be puzzling.
In our eyes, the best holiday gift ideas for workmates speak to their services as a tidy desk companion, occasional confidante, sterling mentor, and perhaps even a colleague that has transitioned to a regular ol’ friend outside of work—yet are also options that can improve their lives beyond the tiny cubicle that dominates their daylight hours (or beyond the subsection of their apartment that’s been relegated to a monitor and keyboard, if your team is still working from home).
Here, we’ve compiled several gift ideas that will give your favorite colleagues a little token of your thanks, like a massager for physical relief after a long day hunched over a screen, succulents to decorate their home office, and even a couple gift sets for the colleagues that are a little harder to pin down. Whatever their tastes, whatever your budget, these are the very best gifts for coworkers in 2021.
