Five Gifts You Should Never Give A Co-Worker
Could you imagine getting lingerie from a co-worker? Surprise! White elephant gifts are one thing, but what if that guy you kinda like over in the mail room thinks it's a good idea to impress you with a little red negligee in front of the entire office? Not the best idea!
What else is on the list of taboo gifts for co-workers?
Besides the lace, there are a few things that have to do with self-improvement that are no-no's. For example, don't get your boss a self-help book (like how to be a better leader), and don't get anyone you work with a gym membership or perfume or cologne. You might as well be screaming that person is fat and smelly.
Other gifts to avoid when it comes to co-workers, according to the Wall Street Journal: anything used (unless it's a gag gift), and anything involving religion. Most of those things sound like it should go without saying. I might also add that clothes of any kind are off limits. You don't want to know your co-workers think you look a size or two bigger than you actually are.
When in doubt, gift cards and more gift cards! My motto for the holiday season.
