Whether it’s a special holiday or someone’s birthday, finding a gift for a colleague can be tricky. You want something that’s not just thoughtful, but something with more utility than a simple tie.

We present some of the best gift ideas that your recipient will truly appreciate.


Gifts to improve your life/personal development

Gym membership gift card

If someone on the team is a fitness junkie, a gift card to a nearby gym could help save them a lot of money. Be careful with this idea though- if someone hasn’t explicitly shown their desire for working out, this gesture could come off more as an insult.

Blue Apron e-gift

We all wish we had more time to cook at home. That’s what Blue Apron is for. The popular home meal kit delivery service offers e-gift cards in values of $60, $120, and $240. For reference, $120 is enough to cover a 2-week delivery, with 2 recipes each week. There’s also the option to send wine instead of the meal plan, which features a fancy selection of world-class wine pairings.

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle

Books will always be one of the best gifts to help someone improve themselves, and you can never go wrong with Eckhart Tolle. One of his most popular books, The Power of Now, teaches its readers to silence the “mind-consciousness” and the frantic nature of everyday life, and focus on the most important gift: the present moment.


Gifts for organization

Evernote Moleskine Notebook

Moleskine has developed a reputation for having some of the best-crafted notebooks, and also some of the priciest. There are several reasons they’re universally appealing: from the quality of the paper to the portability. You can get special edition notebooks too, from Star Wars to The Little Prince, but our favorite has to be the Evernote Moleskine. This notebook allows you to digitize your notes in the cloud, so you have a physical copy and a digital one too.

Beluga Cable Clips

They may not the most personal gift in the world, but we guarantee whoever receives these cable clips will be grateful. The Beluga Cable Clips are colorful, useful, and affordable gift options. Not only do they stick to most surfaces, but they can help keep any desk or home office neat and organized.

Personalized Calendar

Even though everyone has a calendar in their phones these days, nothing beats the practicality of a physical calendar. There’s something about writing down special days, flipping pages for every new month, and crossing out past days. On Shutterfly, you can create custom calendars with images and layouts of your choice.


Gifts for improving productivity and efficiency

Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker

Forget about Keurig, nothing beats a traditional coffee maker for that classic coffee taste. With the Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker, you don’t have to trade convenience for flavor either- this Amazon Best Seller lets you brew single-serve or full pots of coffee. Perfect for the caffeine addict in the office.

Noise-canceling headphones

Sometimes a coworking space or office can have distracting ambient sounds. Drown them out and stay productive with a pair of noise-canceling headphones. For budget, brand, and effect, few come close to the Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise-cancelling Headphones. These headphones are packed with features, such as an inline mic for taking phone calls, deep bass for great sounding music, and a lightweight profile for easy storage.

Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock

Getting up early can be a struggle, especially when it’s still dark in your room. The Philips Wake-Up Light alarm clock overcomes this by simulating a sunrise synchronized to your alarm time. You can even simulate the sunset to help ease you into sleep.


Finding the perfect gift

Gifts are always difficult, especially for coworkers, where you need to be professional. These gifts are bound to be appreciated by anyone who receives them. After all, what can be a better gift than helping someone be more productive or organized?
