Christmas is coming and people are bugging me for gift ideas, so I decided to do a Countdown to Christmas series. Every day I will toss out gift ideas. There is no set structure so any suggestions and or requests are welcome. :) That said, on to the first installment: colleagues.
Yes, times are rough, but it’s always nice to show a token of appreciation to your colleagues. You know, the people you need to get along with, in order to get stuff done? Instead of passing out a bunch of candy canes, why not refrain from purchasing a bag of chips for yourself until Christmas, grab a cup of coffee instead of that latte that costs a dollar or two more, save a few bucks and spend it on your co-workers to show that: I may not like you, but I respect you. So here we go!
Couch Potato Stress Toy (Stress Ball)
via kleargear.com. That site has a huge cubicle goodies section and an even larger stress ball series, all with price ranges of: $1.99 (for random fruits, animals, and no name things like the couch potato pictured left) to $3.99 for The Dilbert series. And hey, you can subtly name call the colleague / team member you don’t like by giving a passive aggressive stress ball of say a shark to that one asshole on your team. :)
