compassThe Symbolic Cufflinks

If things are getting out of hand and the environment in the office is heated, you can always help the team coordinator by reminding them that they can keep the team together and on track. Get them a pair of fire extinguisher cufflinks or these compass-shaped ones. They will certainly appreciate the gesture.

Cinco de Mayo Gifts for Coworkers

When you think of Cinco de Mayo, you think of festivals and parades full of people celebrating by getting totally inebriated. But what if your workplace frowns on alcoholic gifts for coworkers? You’ll need to “think outside of the bottle” and pick a gift that won’t get you (or your coworkers) in trouble.

Of course, the most obvious idea is picking up a few sombreros and maracas. Both are clearly Mexican themed, which means they’re great for office parties. They’re also essential to celebrating Cinco de Mayo, and incredibly inexpensive. You can make some yourself, or pick them up inexpensively from party supply stores.

With everyone dressed up and shaking their maracas, you might find these stick-on fiesta mustaches appropriate for the party, too. They’re really fun, super cheap, and can result in some of the most memorable photos you’ll ever take around the office – especially if you can get your boss to wear one. [Read more…]

April 16 Is National Stress Awareness Day – Gifts to De-Stress Coworkers

Stress is a serious problem in our culture. We’re far more overworked and overstressed than ever before, and that’s leading to some serious health problems. On April 16th, you’ll have a chance to spread awareness of stress (and all of its related problems) by picking out the perfect stress busting gifts for coworkers.

But what are they?

A simple tabletop fountain can be a great gift for coworkers feeling stressed out. The sound of running water is calming and soothing. These gifts aren’t very expensive, either, and come in a huge variety of styles.

Small, table-top fish tanks make great stress busters, too. Watching a mini reef, or even a goldfish swimming aimlessly about can help take the mind off of the matter at hand for at least a moment, leading to a brief respite from the daily grind.

If your office won’t allow you to keep these types of gifts for coworkers in your cubicle, you could always consider a mini Zen garden. There are a number of kits that not only allow your coworkers to understand how to use them, but also why they help to relieve the stress that’s building up every day. [Read more…]

  1. Expose others to the environmental issues you’re passionate about

You might think that it would be difficult to pick out Earth Day gifts for coworkers who fall into one category or the other, but that’s just not the case. Below you’ll find a few ideas that make perfect gifts for coworkers, regardless of how concerned they are about the environment – because they help them save money and care for Mother Earth at the same time, meaning you’ll have the perfect “green approach” for everyone.
