It's officially THAT time of year again! Dun dun dunnnnn...

I have tons of preeeetty fun holiday content coming down the pike, and today I'm kicking it off with my guide to holiday gifts for coworkers!

Just like office attire, holiday gifts for coworkers always depend on the industry, company culture and individual. I've worked in some offices where it's super weird to get your colleagues holiday gifts, and in others where it's super weird if you don't. Regardless of where your workplace lands on that beautiful spectrum of weirdness, above is my list of your best bets in showing your colleagues a little holiday appreciation.

When evaluating coworker gifts, be thoughtful about not only what the person might like but also what their professional relationship is to you. You may want to strike a different tone depending on whether the gift is for your boss versus a peer versus an employee. Ideally, the goal is to show a little holiday appreciation while simultaneously steering clear of any Love Actually-style awkwardness.

...particularly because that situation made Emma Thompson cry, and NO ONE MAKES EMMA THOMPSON CRY. But, I digress.

Whether it's a "please don't torpedo my year-end bonus" gift for a boss, an "I wish you would stop whistling and start showering" gift for the creepy dude in accounting, or a "thanks for bringing me gatorade the morning after last year's holiday party" gift for a great friend at work, there's something for just about everyone!
