What If?

Give them something to read in their spare time, or maybe just something to be a conversation starter at their next job.  What If? By Randall Munroe is a group of “serious scientific answers to absurd hypothetical questions.”  You could find out how fast you have to drive to get raindrops to shatter your windshield, or what would happen if a pitcher threw a baseball at close to light speed, with equations and stick figure cartoons to help explain.  It’s sure to be a hit as gifts for coworkers leaving job.

Gifts for coworkers leaving the job can be hard to find, but this Whatever Wall Clock should do the trick.  With the numbers jumbled at the bottom and a big “Whatever” in the center, it’s a good way to get a laugh.  After all, what do they need to know the time for?  It’s not like you’ll notice if they’re late.

Easy Holiday Treats: Sweet Gifts for Coworkers

Christmas season is around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about easy holiday treats for coworkers. Forget fruitcake! Easy holiday treats for coworkers come in such a great variety, that it is a shame to stick to the old habits. If you are looking for gift ideas for coworkers that are still edible and sweet, but want to go for something different this year, then our list of choices is going to be a lifesaver. We just hope you are not on a diet!

Dried Fruits and Nuts

Usually fruit cakes are loaded with dried fruits and nuts plus tons of sugar, flour and eggs to make the cake. Easy holiday treats do not have to have unhealthy ingredient.  Why not offer healthy fruits and nuts as a gift in a nice basket? Plus, it is much easier to combine pistachio with scotch, than a piece of cake. Right? Right. What’s more, you can just choose the fruits that the coworker likes and have no waste (you know what we are talking about: everyone eats the almonds and the cranberries and the raisins are left alone in the bowl at the end of the night).

A watch is a great gift for a special occasion, like a promotion, a coworker changing department within the company or even as a birthday gift. You don’t have to go bankrupt to get a cute watch for your colleague either. If you are looking for cheap watches as gifts for coworkers, take a look at our picks. You will surely find something to fit your coworker’s taste and personality.

For the coworker who loves pencil skirts, pearl earrings and silk shirts, you should choose an equally elegant watch. This Anne Klein model has a genuine leather soft pink strap and a rosegold-tone case. The dial is made of mother of pearl and the numbers are roman and with a matching rosegold-tone finishing. Such a watch is easy to wear every day with all sorts of neutral tones, like gray, taupe, aubergine or pistachio greens. Your coworker will love it and appreciate your taste as well.

For the young colleague

People in their twenties prefer casual watches, that they can wear with all types of clothing, in all sorts of activities. So, if you are looking for a gift for coworkers who are in their twenties -like that exceptional intern, who finally got hired- choosing a modern, casual watch is a great idea. We like this one from Timex. It’s simple design makes it both office-appropriate and suited for a party night out as well. The case is round and the numbers simple, both in 12 and 24-hour mode. The second hand is red; a happy touch. The nylon band comes in many colors, from neutral ones, like olive green, to bolder combinations, like the orange-gray combination. [Read more…]
