Christmas is almost here. ‘Tis the season to be generous and forgiving. And what better way to be generous than to buy gifts for your colleagues? People who you see 9 hours a day, 5 days a week? It is a common tradition for offices to do Secret Santas or a “not so secret” gift exchanging amongst your fellow colleagues.
Now, there’s obviously a budget set for the gifts and often times, many people do not abide by the rules. You know what I’m talking about. There are people who just re-gift anything they could find at home that looks new, and there are people who buy gifts waaaay under the budget given. Look, you don’t want to be any of the above.
So let us help you with a list of fun things you can get at under RM50 that will make you look so generous and thoughtful!
Remind your hardworking workmate to drink water regularly and stay hydrated. This bottle can hold up to 1.8L of water so your colleague doesn’t have to keep pacing back and forth to refill their bottle of water. Comes in a few colors too!
Tons of shapes and designs for you to choose from. Ideal for the one colleague who loves their coffee or tea. Some of these mugs come with a cover so their coffee wouldn’t turn cold so fast. Also, no extra “ingredient” falling into their drinks.
For the one who likes to write notes down. It’s not just cute, but it is also handy because it also comes with two sticky note list. Next time you see a sticky note shaped like a cactus on your desk, you know who it’s from!
This is for the one who has so many things going on in their life. With this big desk planner, your busy bee colleague can just write their busy daily schedule easily and since it’s so big, you can also be nosy and take a peek on what are they so busy with every day.
Someone who loves music will appreciate this gift. Not only will you look so generous, but you also give this co-worker a “don’t talk to me, I have my headphones on” moment. It was RM75 but now it’s 40% off and it’s only RM45!
Got a co-worker who loves to decorate their desk? Why not buy this for them to up their desk decorating game? It is only RM15 each so you can get like 3 of these that will make up their initials or nickname and they will be so happy to mark their desk territory with these stylish lights. Also, throw in some batteries for them to light up this baby.
Perfect for the wanderlust in the office. The one who is always traveling will appreciate this memory foam neck pillow that comes with a convenient pouch! Can also be gifted to the one who likes to nap in the office. Shhh, not naming any names here.
There’s always that one person who has tons of pens of all colors that you borrow a pen or two from (and sometimes never return). Why not show them your gratitude and appreciation by getting a cute pen holder for them to put all their pens neatly!
For the angry one who loves to slam on their keyboard. Now they can release their frustration by punching this big “Enter” key that can be plugged in via USB. You can get two of these so that when the first one is broken from all the slamming, your frustrated co-worker can have a spare one.
The beauty queen of the office will love to receive this gift. Did you know that tuhau can be found only in Sabah? That’s right, this handmade body scrub called Love, Lusie is founded by two Sabahan girls! Their scrubs and other products are all infused with tuhau, a recipe they inherited from their grandmother, Lusinah. Hence, the name of their store is an homage to her.
We hope this help give you an idea of what to buy for your co-workers this Christmas!
Create happy memories with your co-workers this year and be the best gifter in your office!
