10 Delightful, Under $50 Gifts for Your Work Friends

Do you have to give your colleagues gifts? No, of course not! (Duh, that’s what e-cards of your dog are for). But if you’re lucky enough to count a best friend (or two) at your company, then these are the best coworker gifts.


For the coworker who’s always applying lip balm on Zoom

Hydrating, waterless, and low on waste, these moisturizing bars can be used on the body, hands, and lips. The sampler set means they can try all the dreamy scents at once.

For the coworker who’s obsessed with journaling

With daily gratitude prompts and a very aesthetically pleasing cover, this Papier journal is full of affirmations and mantras—perfect for the coworker who can’t stop recommending The Untethered Soul.

Find Your Flow Gratitude Journal, $33, papier.com


For the fashion-obsessed coworker

Fine jewellery under $50? Yes it exists, courtesy of—who else?—Mejuri. You can’t go wrong with classic, understated hoops (unless your giftee’s ears aren’t pierced. Maybe check on that.)

Midi Hoops, $50, mejuri.com


For the coworker who’s always cold

A decidedly stylish take on the winter scarf. The chartreuse hue is unexpected yet surprisingly wearable.

File under: A gift anyone would like. It’s insulated, the silicone is sleek and grippy. And the terrazzo print? Well, that’s just plain fun.

For the coworker who’s trying to kick coffee

Get them into microdosing—on caffeine that is.

Is it the calming effects of lavender, camomile, and vetivert, or simply a very effective placebo? Whatever it is, it works and smells lovely.

For the coworker who’s doing Dry January

They’re already talking about cutting back, and the office holiday party hasn’t even been scheduled. Show your support with Surely Wines, the alcohol-free wine that doesn’t skimp on taste (because it’s still made by actual winemakers using California grapes).
