Inexpensive Gifts for Coworkers – Under $50

If you work somewhere that participates in a holiday gift exchange or if you simply work with a few people you consider to be friends, you will need some gift ideas for coworkers. The problem of course is finding something that  is nice enough to be truly enjoyed, but not so expensive that it breaks the bank. If you are struggling to come up with ideas of inexpensive gifts for coworkers under $50, this list should give you a little inspiration.

DVD Box Set
If you know the person is a huge fan of Hellraiser, Halloween, Married…With Children, The Three Stooges or any other classic collection, you could get them a box set of DVDs.

Passport Wallet
Are you shopping for a frequent flier? Why not buy a nice passport wallet for them? Sure, there are tons of really cheap wallets like this available, but a gift should be something the receiver wouldn’t traditionally splurge on themselves. For example, a Vera Bradley Passport Cover for her is available in about 15 different gorgeous prints. For a guy, a Royce Leather Rfid Blocking Passport Currency Wallet is sure to spark a smile from even the office scrooge.

Gift Basket
You only need to know a little bit about someone to buy them a gift basket. Pick a theme and you are sure to find a basket thoughtfully put together with items they will love. All you need to know is if the person likes coffee, tea , golf, bubble baths, gardening, gourmet foods, etc. A few popular picks include:

  • Bon Appetit – Gourmet cookies, toffee, nuts, dried fruit, crackers, cheese straws, caramels, dip mix, cheese spread and more.
  • Hitting the Range-Golf Gift Basket – Any golfer will be thrilled to receive this basket with a steel wire range basket, golf balls, tees and plenty of gourmet snacks.
  • Spa Products – If the gal that you are shopping for enjoys  being pampered, or perhaps she doesn’t pamper herself enough, buy her some spa products from brands like Philosophy, The Body Shop, Kiss My Face, LUSH and Sephora. Many women today have families that they support and house payments they make all on their own, so not a lot of luxury products can be squeezed into the budget. These are things that will be more than appreciated.

For the Kitchen
If you are looking for gift ideas for coworkers, you may not even think to put kitchen items on your list. However, while you certainly won’t be buying them a new toaster or crock pot, you may want to consider a coffee bean grinder, tea diffuser, fondue set, smoothie maker, cotton candy machine or a multitude of other items they may not buy for themselves.
