Gifts for Coworkers Birthdays

It’s your colleague’s birthday!  Cake in the break room is a great treat, but what about something a little more personal?  Gifts for coworkers birthdays are less hard to choose than you think, and here’s a handy guide to help you get started.

Mug Warmer

Everyone needs a pick-me-up during the workday, but they don’t always have time to drink it.  Keep your associate’s coffee or tea from getting lukewarm and disgusting with this Mug Warmer.  It even doubles as a coaster, so maybe you’ll stop getting paperwork with coffee rings.


Pen Stand

If you’re never good at choosing gifts for coworkers birthdays, adding a little life to your cohort’s desk with the Potted Pen Stand is always safe.  Made to look like a pot of freshly growing grass, but it never needs to be watered and will hold all of your desk clutter!  Just make sure everyone else knows not to water it too.


Business Card Holder

Sometimes the best gifts are things they never knew they needed.  Less work than a rolodex and cuter too, this Business Card File Cabinet has an A-Z index for your cards and a little clock in the top drawer.  It’s small enough to easily fit on your desk, or if you’re really into grouping things together you can keep it with the other filing cabinets.


Tape Dispenser

For the dog lover, or just someone who likes the idea of taking things from canine mouths, a Dog Tape Dispenser is a great way to say “I know you like dogs, but I’m not getting you a real one.”  It’s much quieter than a real dog, and no one has to argue about whose turn it is to walk the dog.


Office Prank Book

gifts for coworkers birthdays don’t have to be boring.  Or even necessarily safe.  Cubicle Warfare lists 101 office traps and pranks, all illustrated and with complete instructions.  The difficulty ranges from novice to expert, and with this book around the office certainly won’t be boring.  It’s a good thing you trust your colleague, or you would have to watch your back after giving them this gift.  You do trust them, don’t you?

WTF Slammer

Because sometimes the craziness can get to be too much, this WTF Slammer says what you can’t.  With sound effects to keep it safe for work, this button has ten different ways to express disbelief and dismay.


Desk Tidy

All the little things on your desk are so hard to keep in one place.  Erasers and paper clips always seem to find their way into the weirdest places.  Give your associate a Frog Desk Tidy to help contain the tiny pieces of office life which always try to escape.

From gag gifts to practical items, it’s never been easier to get a heartfelt gift for your colleague’s birthday.  Just hop online and order, and you will never have to explain why you didn’t get them anything again.

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).

Gifts for Commuting Coworkers

Gifts for commuting coworkers are a great way to help make the commute to work every day worthwhile for our coworker friends.  This is why when you are looking for gift ideas for coworkers, it might be a good idea to make your gift-hunt a bit more specific. After all, with the exception of the few lucky ones who live next door to the office, the rest of us are biking, driving or taking the public transport to work every day and everyone would love to make this travel time more pleasant. So, here are some ideas for gifts for commuting coworkers. You will probably end up getting one of each for yourself as well, but it’s fine, because they are totally worth it.

musicThe Music

Yes, you can turn on the radio and listen to the news or the traffic report or even listen to your favorite metal band and do some head banging. No one is going to judge you for that. But if you want to do your coworker a favor and help them relax during this awful traffic congestion, get them the “Music for Commuting” box set.  The music is a relaxing mix of new age, ambient and electronica and it appeals to people with very different music tastes. The price is unbeatable as well.

The iPad Holder

Many of us use their iPad to kill some time while commuting with the train or bus. When it gets crowded in there however, many of us have dropped our iPads as well. Not fun. This is why your coworker will appreciate this rotating iPad holder that will allow them to strap their favorite device onto their hand, keeping it safe. Holding an iPad like that also prevents strain of the hand joints in the long run. [Read more…]

Cheap Budget Tablets As Coworker Gifts

If you are looking for a special gift for coworkers that is a bit more fascinating than a stapler or yet another pencil case, then you might want to consider something from the wide range of cheap budget tablets. Nowadays more and more people use such devices while commuting. Some will work on them, while others will read a book, play games or make their grocery list. Touchscreen devices have a multitude of uses and they are great as they take up much less space and are much lighter than a lap top or a book. Have a look at our picks. They are all less than $100 and you will make that lucky coworker very happy! It’s a great Secret Santa gift too!
