Sometimes, we feel obligated to buy gifts for coworkers, whether it be for Christmas, their birthday, or some other holiday. These coworker gift ideas are not for those people.
These ideas are for coworkers you actually like, and in most of these ideas, they are gift ideas for sarcastic coworkers who can take a joke.
20 Inexpensive Gifts For Coworkers
Unspirational 2021 Day-to-Day Calendar
My mother, who is also my coworker, gifted me this calendar last year and it’s great. I share them a lot on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, and people are always asking where I got it. Here’s the 2021 calendar! Get yours today!
Tricks To Appear Smart in Meetings 2021 Day-to-Day Calendars
I’m giving you multiple calendar ideas, in case you want to get several of your coworkers calendars as gifts. This way, you can get them all different calendars. This one looks pretty funny, and is obviously not to be taken seriously.
You Had One Job 2021 Day-to-Day Calendar
This calendar is like scrolling through Reddit every day! What could be better than getting a good laugh at someone else every single day of 2021? It’s a great coworker gift!
1 Gallon Motivational Water Bottle
I feel like not drinking enough water is a pretty common problem. This one is great because it motivates you to drink a full gallon of water each day. I know what you’re thinking, though. “Oh, that’s way too big!! I’ll just get a smaller one!!” No. Don’t. I have a smaller motivational water bottle. I drink the whole thing and then I’m too lazy to refill it, which defeats the purpose. Get the gallon water bottle! There are lots of colors to choose from.
Imagine all the hilarious (or inspirational) quotes your coworker could put on a felt letter board to display proudly in their workspace.
Do you and your favorite coworker hate all the same people? Get them a Dammit Doll! Take out your frustrations on the doll instead and avoid getting fired.
Because Work Wine Glass
I think this is pretty self explanatory. Does work make your coworker want to drink? Get them this wine glass.
Work Merit Stickers
We all need to feel like we accomplished something at the end of every work day and stickers definitely help. Even if your only accomplishment was that you didn’t swear for one whole hour.
Office Citation Note
They have several different types of these, but this one seems like the best gift for a coworker. Especially, if you work in an office setting.
Self-Care Rx Note
This is another one I like, because everyone needs to remember to do things they enjoy when they are finally blessed with the reward of leaving work. If you’re looking for other self care ideas, I have a whole blog post for my 30 day self care challenge!
Snarky Boss Lady Pen Set
Everyone could use more pens at work, but everyone needs a pen that says “This meeting is bullshit.” This is the perfect gift for your boss lady coworker.
Funny Office Mood Cards
Does your coworker love being passive aggressive? Let them set up a sign on their desk that says “I’m dying to know what you have to say.”
Livin The Dream Desk Sign
They probably don’t actually feel like they’re living the dream. That’s why it’s funny.
Portable Space Heater
I know our office is always freezing cold. Even in August. If yours is the same, give your coworker the gift of a space heater!
Lumbar Support Pillow
I have one of these on my chair at work and it’s amazing. Now, whenever I sit in someone else’s chair, it feels like complete garbage. You and all your coworkers need this.
This is for your coworker who is always tired but hates coffee.
There are lots of Funko Pops to choose from, so find one your coworker would like. I currently have a Draco Malfoy Funko Pop on my desk, but if I were to choose another one, it would be David Rose. Or the entire Backstreet Boys Funko Pop collection.
Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer
This is for your coworker who does like coffee, but never manages to drink all of it before it gets cold.
DoorDash Gift Card
I feel like most people love DoorDash, but they hate themselves for using it because of all the fees that are added on. With a DoorDash gift card, they don’t have to feel like an idiot for spending $35 on one meal! It’s also perfect for winter, because they don’t have to leave the office to go get food.
Amazon.com eGift Card
You can’t go work with an Amazon gift card. If you can’t decide on an inexpensive gift for your coworkers, just give them one of these and let them pick out their own gift!
What’s the best give you’ve received from a coworker? Let me know in the comments!
