Some coworkers jump at the opportunity to get creative for their office secret Santa while others need a lot of help to come up with a decent idea. Finding a great gift for someone you know well can already be a difficult task. This task gets even more difficult when the Christmas gift is for a coworker you are less familiar with. There is also the question of how personal the gift should be. Would you give a coworker the same gift you would give your friend?
This extensive but compact list will help you find a suitable gift for your coworker so you can go to the secret Santa office party to have fun instead of over-thinking the gift.
