You're spending a lot of time with your colleagues whether you realize it or not. Hours on end every week, you're sitting next to them, chatting in meetings, making small talk in the kitchen and probably even going out for lunch or drinks. You talk about work, sure, but you also know their kids' names, what birthday cake is their favorite flavor and maybe stuff that's a little more personal. There's no denying that these people can hold a significant place in your life, and have likely seen you at your best, your worst and everything in between. So when it's time to say goodbye, thank you or happy birthday to your favorite office mates, look to these best gifts for co-workers.
For the most part, whether it's a retirement party or holiday party, you'll want to lean into a work-appropriate gift, like something personalized that they can use every day. But for the select work spouses, you can opt for an exceptional gag present that highlights all of your inside jokes (funny gifts also make great Secret Santa ideas for co-workers). Of course, if you're shopping for your boss, you're going to want something more impressive. Luckily, everything here would make the perfect present for any colleague — even if they are leaving the job and won't be your co-worker anymore. Sad. But what you can be happy about is that they will always remember you thanks to these awesome gift ideas.
