Office Secret Santa exchanges should, in theory, be a lot of fun — who doesn’t like getting presents? But if you draw the name of someone you barely know, someone you really want to impress (a.k.a. the big boss) or, god forbid, your office crush, finding an appropriate gift can be a daunting challenge. The best co-worker gifts are useful and personal without getting too personal. To help you navigate your office Secret Santa shopping this year, we put together a list of unimpeachable gifts for every type of colleague, work wife, or HR rep.
