Fun and Thoughtful Workplace Holiday Gifts Ideas (That Won't Break the Bank)

It’s a balancing act. You want to give your co-workers a little something at the holidays, but you don’t want them to feel obligated to give you something in return and you don't want to break the bank. Here are 11 fun and thoughtful gifts for under $10 that will help you spread the holiday cheer!

1. Tea  Give a travel tin of tea bags or a box of your favorite herbal tea for an aromatic warm-up this winter.

2. Chocolate  You can’t go wrong with chocolate, because if your co-worker doesn’t eat it, chances are he knows someone who does. A small box of truffles is affordable and thoughtful and with any luck, just enough to share! 

3. Hot Sauce  Give the firebrand in your office some serious heat with a collection of hot sauces. 

4. Candles  Give the relaxing gift of aromatherapy in candle form! 

5. Aromatherapy  Therapeutic-grade essential oils in holiday scents are a lovely way to celebrate the season. 

6. Cookies   Give a small package of adorable holiday cookies, or bake your own. Print our super cute   cookie gift tags to complete your gift.  

7. Themed Socks  – You can find just about any kind of themed sock on Amazon.com to fit a co-workers interests. For example, if you have a co-worker that loves cats, searching for "cat socks" provides you with limitless options.   

8. Personalized Notecards  Personalized stationery is not nearly as expensive as it seems. Order and give to the coworker who never fails to send handwritten thanks and encouragement.

9. Lip Balm or Lotion – For the office mate who suffers from the dry heated office air, a set of mini lip balms or a tube of luxurious hand lotion might be just the ticket.

10. Dog Treats   For the dog lover in the office, bake or buy festive dog treats in holiday-themed shapes. 

11. Luggage Tags – For the traveling sales team, give unique luggage tags to help speed up the baggage claim process.
