You might think you’re done with holiday shopping after you’ve selected presents for your parents, kids, siblings, significant others and that white elephant gift exchange you agreed to. But then you realize—you haven’t even thought about what to get your coworkers (you know, the ones you can actually stand).
Whether it’s your boss, work wife, work husband or just Sandra from accounts, it’s possible to show a sign of festive goodwill without breaking the bank. Here are some super-thoughtful $10 gift ideas for coworkers that are sure to be a hit.
1. Madewell Travel Matte Metallic Glass Candle
Sure, a candle might be an obvious option, but who doesn’t want their home to look prettier and smell better? Plus, the matte design of this particular number is so chic and luxurious, it’s hard to believe it’s only $10.
2. Starbucks Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix
Give them a comforting, warm hug via a delicious mug of cocoa. Because IRL workplace hugs can be awkward (and oftentimes are not HR-approved).
