The Tipping List

5 Gifts Your Secret Snowflake Won’t Hate

Avoiding the Dollar Store dread

-Megan Southwick

woman with giftQuiz time! What do broken scented candles, re-gifted Santa Claus mugs and a book of McDonald’s coupons have in common?

Answer: They’re all items I’ve received as part of an office holiday gift exchange.

How do you avoid being one of those gift-givers? Easy. Pick something from the list below, and shazam! You’re good to go.

Emoticon Clip Set

Ahh, the emoticon. It’s made its way into everything, even professional e-mails. Why not bring it from the virtual to the real world with this cute set of clips? And, 40 clips for $10? Sounds Secret-Snowflake worthy to me.

Save Key Bank

Oh, the punnery. It’s clever, it’s cute, it’s a perfect desktop accessory that any coworker will be happy to dump her loose change into. Best of all, it’s not another holiday mug containing chocolate-covered espresso beans.

Origami Sticky Notes

This is the one that I want – my office mates poke fun at me for the little teeeeensy squares that I fold my used sticky notes into – at least now they’d have to feign amusement at my post-it cranes and frogs! It’s a cheap gift, and will provide tons of fun, no matter who the coworker is.

Exhibit Your Art Pad

It’s another sticky note – can you tell I’m partial? Every memo is a work of art with this super-sized note pad. What’s better than a mile-long to-do list that looks like it belongs in the Met?

Bacon Chocolate

The general rule is that when all else fails, give good chocolate. This year, give a twist on good chocolate. It sounds kind of disgusting, but the combo of bacon and chocolate is nothing less than scrumptious. (And it “machos” up a bar of chocolate in case you draw a guy’s name!)
