As a wise person once said, work is only as fun as your most fun coworker.
It was me. I said that. I’m so wise, and yes, you can quote me on this.
But seriously, coworkers can make or break a job, and that’s why the good ones deserve to be celebrated. To make your celebration efforts a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of gifts that will show your appreciation this Christmas.
Ready, set, add to cart.
#1: The Office pencil set
Price: $25 on LonghandPencils.com
I submit that there is no better gift to give your officemate than a pencil set from everyone’s favorite workplace comedy, The Office. And let’s be honest, the only thing better than working with your real-life coworker would be working with Michael Scott.
Bonus: Longhand Pencils has tons of sets from other shows, movies, and books. If The Office doesn’t strike your fancy, take a look and see what other options your coworker will (definitely) be obsessed with.
#2: 2021 Seize the Day daily desk calendar
Price: $13.99 on Etsy
No matter how fabulous your job is, sometimes work just stinks—and on those days, your coworker needs a little pick-me-up. Enter this amazing and uber-inspirational daily calendar. One look at these incredible quotes from even more incredible women will have your office buddy feeling better in no time. (And you, too, because you definitely spend more time at their desk than your own.)
#3: Desktop golf
Price: $35.00 on UncommonGoods.com
Ever get an email that leaves you feeling antsy or leave a meeting feeling stressed? Desktop golf is perfect for those moments, and it’s going to give your coworker and everyone in your office hours of stress-melting entertainment. Plus, your coworker can change the golfing surface so that they can putt a different hole every time. Trust us, this gift is so good that it’s going to be on par with everything from your holiday vacation time to your Christmas bonus.
#4: PhoneSoap 3
Price: $79.95 on our site
One of the greatest gifts you can give anyone, especially during this insane pandemic, is the gift of a disinfected phone. Whether your coworker is working from home or in the office, they’re definitely encountering germs on germs on germs all day long. But with the PhoneSoap 3, 99.99% of bacteria can be gone in 10 minutes flat.* Merry Christmas indeed!
#5: Orthopedic gel seat cushion
Price: $37.95 on Amazon
Sitting for hours on end is no fun no matter which way you slice it, but it’s much more enjoyable (and less painful) with this seat cushion. Plus, it comes with a removable cover for easy cleaning. Just make sure your coworker writes their name with Sharpie on that thing because you know everyone is going to want to steal it.
#6: Felt letter board
Price: $23.87 on Amazon.com
This adorable letter board is hands down the easiest way to brighten up the workspace. It's also the easiest way to make your coworker laugh when you regularly surprise them with a new Leslie Knope quote.
#7: Desktop organizer with adjustable shelves
Truly the perfect gift for your ultra-organized (or ultra-disorganized) office pal. These adjustable house everything from books and paperwork to the much-needed office succulent, and it’s available in four finishes to match any type of desk.
#8: Daily planner
Price: $20.97 on Amazon.com
There’s a reason everyone is so obsessed with Panda Planners: They’re awesome. They’re spacious, customizable, and sure to help your coworker have their most productive year yet.
