With the holidays fast approaching, I once again face the fact that I am a chronically late shopper. I always manage to forget to figure out my shopping list until the last minute, especially when it comes to office presents. There is nothing quite like the dead stare of your coworker as you hand them a “I’ve got a case of the Mondays!” mug they gave you last year (at least you put a bow on it right?). Now is the time for us to rise up and vow: Never again! This year, I will buy my boss something exciting! I will not be the person who gives a bag full of things you raided from your supply closet to their office Secret Santa.
“Sticky notes and a box of pens again Ted? …You’re fired.”
Shopping for co-workers can be tough, though. What do you get the guy who makes terrible coffee or your pal who likes to watch Doctor Who memes at her desk? If you are stuck on what to get your cubicle buddy or workaholic friend, don’t repeat the mistakes of yesteryears by buying the tried and true fruit cake (nobody needs a doorstop or paperweight). Take things to the next level! Get creative. Sites like ThinkGeek, Etsy, and Amazon have a great variety of cool office supplies that will make your coworkers smile. Let this list of geeky office-related goodies be your inspiration to rock this holiday with your awesome presents!
