How to choose the best gifts for co-workers

Are you struggling with gift ideas for your co-worker? Are you worried your gift won't be appreciated, or even liked? finder.com.au has got you covered - here is a quick guide on how to choose the best gifts for your co-workers.

    • Position. Consider the position your co-worker holds in the company when choosing gifts. If they are your boss, it might pay to take the time to find out exactly what they would like. If they are in IT, then something tech-inspired might be appropriate.
  • Personality. The personality of the person you're buying for should always come into consideration when buying gifts. There is no point buying an experience gift for someone who is quiet, or a gag gift for someone who is notoriously serious. Always think about who you are buying the gift for.
  • Age. Someone's age is also a good thing to think about when choosing gifts. A younger person might like something more fun, or even something useful and practical. If they are older, they might enjoy a nice bottle of wine or homewares.
