Individual Thank You Gifts for Office Staff
Saying thank you with a small, individual gift is a timeless tradition. (Christmas gifts image by Maria Brzostowska from

It's easy to pick up chocolates, mugs or pen sets and give them to office staff members but choosing presents with particular people in mind is considered thoughtful and charming. Selecting individual gifts may seem an overwhelming task, especially in an office environment, but with just a little inspiration it can be fun.

Happy Hobbiest

If the interests and pastimes of staff members are known, a magazine subscription related to the hobby or one magazine copy rolled carefully and tied with ribbon can be appreciated.

Search out unique tools that relate to the hobby: a set of teacup shaped nesting measuring cups for a baker, ergonomic hand tools for the horticulturalist, a unique bike lock or water bottle for the cyclist or movie guide for the film buff. A brief Internet search for information about the person's interest will spark ideas.

Personality Plus

Writing down a few descriptive words that relate to an individual office staff member might bring to mind an appropriate gift. For the fastidious gentleman, consider a reproduction of a Victorian clock. The office comedian will get a kick out of a practical joke or magic trick kit. However, stay away from gag gifts; they are only funny for a moment. A romantic would be pleased with a sterling strawberry fork. A Christmas enthusiast will find a place for a vintage star garland made of tin.

The idea is to pair personal characteristics with a gift that embodies the trait.

For Everyone

Sometimes there just isn't time to devote to gift-giving. It is still possible to give interesting, unique thank you gifts to office staff. More general in nature, most people will be happy to receive one of the following items: a membership to the local museum, a set of coasters, picture frames, an attractive agenda, gift token to nearby cheese shop or cafe, an ornate pocket mirror, personalised computer mouse, BBQ tool set, tickets to the local movie theatre.

High-Cost, Low-Cost

A full-day spa treatment will be gratefully received. Women and men both enjoy a professional manicure.

Boutique quality gift tags are a luxurious adornment. A similar decoration can be created by a crafty modification to standard card stock. Brown parcel paper tied with twine is as pleasing to the eye as silver foil and velvet trimmed ribbon.

Tickets to the city symphony will be treasured; however, smaller venues often showcase talented musicians.

Reproduction mercury glass votive holders look very much like the antique item. Whatever the budget, nice gifts can be found.

Embellishments and Extras

The smallest, most inexpensive gift will make an impression if wrapped with care. Conversely, a pricey gift loses value if carelessly presented in a plastic shopping bag. Tissue paper, ribbon, gift tags addressed with the recipient's name all add impact. A fresh flower, small pebble, even a pine cone are decorative additions to gifts.When extra care is given to presentation the recipient feels special.
