15 office gift ideas
Office gift ideas can baffle anyone who needs to provide gifts for coworkers or employees. You will need to find gift items which are useful and appreciated. Throwing in a bit of a personal touch will let anyone know you appreciate the hard work they do every day.
If you know you need to provide gifts for a group of people, budget can play a factor in what you select as gifts. Setting a price limit on what you are able to spend and staying within that budget is extremely important so you know you can give gifts to the staff of your office again in the future. If you go broke this time, you may not want to do it again.
The next thing to consider is what type of gifts you would like to give. You can give something simple like a large gift basket to members of the office staff if you like. It is extremely important to provide enough items in the basket to guarantee that each member of the office is able to get something from the basket. A snack basket will need enough food items so that everyone gets a sample. Fruit baskets are always refreshing and the same rule holds for them as it does for snack baskets. Coffee or tea baskets are also wonderful items to give to an office. Make sure to include single serve coffee or tea items and sweeteners, with enough to serve everyone. Baskets which feature office supplies are also welcome additions to any day at the office. Be sure you have at least one item for each member of the office staff.
If you need an office gift idea which will give individual gifts to each member of the staff, expect to pay a bit more per unit. You will want to incorporate useful and thoughtful items which can be used in the office or at home. Consider giving business card holders, pencil and pen holders, pencil and pen sets, name plates, day runners or office supplies. If you are able, combining gift items is a good idea. You can find wholesalers who are willing to offer reduced prices for people who purchase items by the case or in bulk, which can work wonders for your budget. Whatever you decide to give, make sure you provide the same item or type of item for each member of the office staff to avoid hard feelings.
Keep a few things in mind when you are looking to give items at the office. You will want to stay within your budget and provide similar items to everyone, without leaving anyone out. Following those standards will help you when thinking of office gift ideas.
