Bulk Christmas Gifts for Coworkers

Looking for bulk Christmas gifts for coworkers is no easy task. First, you likely have a tight budget. And as badly as you would like to spend money on coworkers, it’s not always an option. Secondly, you want to make sure that your holiday gifts can be delivered and distributed quickly. Because after all, nothing is more valuable than your time. Thirdly, you want to make sure the small presents are useful and appropriate. In these politically correct times it is far too easy to misstep and give a gift that can be taken the wrong way. And last but not least, you want it to be something that is useful and functional and that they will appreciate.

Fear not! We have put together a list of bulk Christmas gifts for coworkers that will please everyone on your list.

Umbrellas

As an intern, I’ll never forget receiving an umbrella from one of our sales reps. He gave one to everyone, regardless of position. It was a thoughtful and useful gift. Everyone and their mother can appreciate a small and compact umbrella that is functional and neutral in color. Every time it rains and they arrive to work dry they will be grateful for your gift.

A desk fan or cubicle heater

Let’s be honest, the thermostat is a contentious item in the workplace…assuming you can even find it and change it! Sort of like Goldilocks, no one can ever seem to agree on the right temperature. Consider a small cubicle fan or desk heater so that your employees can take temperatures into their own hands. It will empower them, and more importantly, make them comfortable. While not the cheapest on our list of bulk Christmas gifts for coworkers, definitely one of the more useful ideas.

Remember, when giving out bulk Christmas gifts to coworkers, there are several rules to follow. You want to make sure that for the most part you are giving each person the same thing. The office can be like a fish bowl and if you appear to be playing favorites by customizing a gift for one employee and not another, it not only looks bad, but can land you in hot water.

You also want to make sure that you basically give everyone the gift at the same time. You will want to do it well ahead of the holiday before many employees are taking last minute vacation days.

Above all be sure to take care of your gift-buying earlier. We’re serious, there’s no better time to buy them today. Amazon can get it there in a day, but the last thing you need to do is be writing, labeling, and delivery at the last minute. You have enough to do during the holiday season, prep this one early!
