Even after spending 8+ hours a day, 5 days a week with someone, it can still be hard to think of the perfect gift for them. Your coworker friendship is a special type of bond so you know enough about the person to know they want a gift but not enough about them to know what to get them. When coming up with coworker gift ideas, it depends on the friendship. Is your coworker just someone you sit next to in a cubicle? Are they the person you gossip with next to the watercolor? Or are they someone you go to happy hour with so you can vent about your boss? Or, are they actually your boss? Either way, coworker gifts should be something fun and unique because if they hate your gift, you still have to face them day after day. Here are the best coworker gift ideas for birthdays, Christmas, White Elephant gifts, or coworker farewell gifts.
