As the world heals and we begin to do holiday gatherings again, maybe you are back in the office with your co-workers its time for the annual White Elephant. I don’t know about you but getting gifts for co-workers has always been such a huge struggle for me and with many of us still being remote knowing what to gift can be difficult. These gift ideas are for people on a budget or your office bestie, your gal pals, or if you’re looking to find gifts to fill someone special’s stocking.
I don’t know if your team is trying to keep some kind of normalcy for the holidays but if you are and doing a Secret Santa exchange unless you get lucky and get one of your close friends it may be difficult to know what to get your co-worker. But this year since we’re all stuck at home get your secret Santa something for their new at-home office, I love a good mug, mug warmer and maybe some calming (or caffeinated) tea or hot cocoa. Maybe hand lotion for the dry months ahead of us.
Getting all your closest friends gifts for the holidays can certainly add up. But you don’t want to leave anyone out so get your friends little beauty gift sets, Sephora and Ulta, and even Target and other department stores have great little seasonal gift sets with sample sizes of great products. I also love getting friends personalized jewelry, you can find some great and high-quality brands on Etsy.
Every year I take the responsibility of filling my mom’s stocking so she can have some surprises in her stocking. Typically I love putting nail polish, lotion, or other hand pampering gifts, chocolate, little gadgets, and tea in her stocking.
This year is a little weird and many of us don’t have the income we did for holiday gifts this year. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get your friends, coworkers, or loved ones thoughtful and budget-friendly gifts. Are you in charge of getting someone’s stocking stuffers or have someone tricky to buy for this year?
