December is the perfect time to let those you work with know how much you value them.
But who has the time to search for “the” gift for every team member, colleague and boss?!
We do. And here are our favorites, curated just for you.
The “You Can’t Go Wrong” Professional Holiday Gift: Harry and David’s “The Favorite Royal Riviera Pears” ($35). I’ve been giving these for years because they are delicious and everyone loves them. HACK: Earlier in my career, I couldn’t quite swing $35, so I purchased the Three Pack and then re-wrapped them in pairs of two in cellophane bags with a fun holiday ribbon. That took my average price per gift down to about $7.50 and I had one delicious pear left for myself!
For the person who just wants to have fun: this portable karaoke microphone will be my go-to gift for the season. Spoiler alert: if I am involved in a White Elephant with you this holiday season, this is what you’ll be getting.
For the person who loves wine and cares about the story behind it: Go There Wines ($34). The co-founder, Chandler Arnold, describes the company as “a social enterprise offering fantastic wines from a new era of women, people of color, and queer winemakers in lesser-known winemaking regions around the world.” A great gift for team members, co-workers, and clients.
For the bookworm: This Peace & Pages box is “Equal parts self-care and book box, perfectly curated to help you read and relax.” Yes please!
For the boss ladies in your life: This Shattered Glass Ceiling paperweight from uncommon goods ($48), and their recent updates – the Shattered Glass Ceiling necklace ($68) and the “It was Never a Dress” glassware ($18). You could even pair the glassware with a bottle of Go There Wines for a fantastic gift set!
For the “chefs”: A good friend shared told me about this Egg Muffin Maker ($25). After spending 7 weeks on the wait list, mine finally arrived and it does not disappoint. Starting the day out with my own version of an Egg McMuffin and a coffee is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
One final tip: Don’t forget the note! In my opinion, this is more important than the gift. Crane’s stationary has always been my go-to, though honestly, I was disappointed with the quality of my last shipment, so if you have any other stationary you like, please share!
