Choosing a gift is not a random act of kindness. It requires a little more thought and observance on the part of the giver that’s you.
You interact with this colleague for almost 300 days in year so you should by now be familiar with some of these things.
Same goes for hobbies. Having worked with them for a year at least you would know if they
- Like to workout in a gym
- or they prefer to bike/walk/
- Maybe they like to cook?
- Maybe they dislike cooking?
- Listen to music?
- Read books/journals
- Favorite sport
Price you are willing to pay
Based on the answers that you can glean either by observing your co worker or by simply asking then you can decide on the ‘perfect’ gift.
Remember its not what you buy but how to buy a perfect gift for your colleagues that makes the difference. And please don’t forget the packaging.

There is a huge variety of Starbucks coffee that you can get.
Now we both know there is no dearth of Coffee Mugs but for a co worker that likes Starbuck this would be a perfect gift.

On the other hand if they like to drink Lemon tea: these would be ideal
Same goes for hobbies-
- Health conscious -gym lover, well there are endless ‘perfect’ gift ideas ranging from gym bag to gym towels.
- For the Biker co-worker the perfect gift could be anything for the bike like lights, bells, or bike gear, or headsets too.
- If they like to cook– a basket full of goodies like this would be appreciated.
- If they dont like to cook -gift cards to fancy restaurant or a cook book would be perfect.
- Coworkers that listen to music can be gifted ‘gift cards’ to select their own music or headphones to listen. You can find one to suit your budget.
