Since Christmas shopping is fully under way and if you’re like me you haven’t started yet, I thought I’d suggest a few gift ideas for that one person we all have in our lives- the workaholic. She’s a type A and wants to get ahead in life but never seems to stop and smell the roses. I know this girl because I am this girl! After working in offices on and off throughout college, I know exactly what I like to have on my desk at work and I’m sharing it with you!
Christmas Gift Ideas
Desk lamp- I’m not the only one who hates fluorescent lights! When I’m sitting at my desk, I like to turn the overhead lights off and just work with a desk lamp; it’s easier on the eyes.
Cute paper clips- Maybe I’m the only one that notices, but how boring are silver paper clips? These adorable bow shaped ones from Kate Spade are quite an upgrade!
Laptop cover- My Macbook and I have been going to work together since I bought it. A great cover not only protects it but also makes it look nice.
Quality pens and pencils- Most offices provide the basics, but sometimes you want something a little fancier. A pack of pens or pencils with a chic pattern on them are always appreciated!
Passport holder- If the workaholic travels a lot, a passport holder is a stylish way to carry your necessary documents. This leather one from Fossil is a great gift choice for the world-traveler.
Letter holder- I have so many papers that pile up on my desk that I need a way to organize them. This hedgehog does that and looks cute at the same time.
Ballet flats- Every girl has them and needs more. When you live in a city, you put a lot of wear and tear on these beloved shoes. We can always use more!
Travel mug- Easy to use at your desk and walking around the office. The simplest gifts are sometimes the best!
Heating and massage pad- Every office building I’ve ever worked in has always been freezing cold. I got smart one day and brought in a heating pad to lay across my lap to stay warm. A friend of mine was even smarter and found one that goes behind your back and will massage it. This is probably my favorite gift on this list!
Letter/iPad pouch- I’ve seen these all over Instagram and they’re really handy for keeping iPads in! Added bonus- it’s pink.
