Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be stressful. Add in whether or not to pick out something for co-workers and even the jolliest person might turn into a Scrooge.
Here’s a handy rule of thumb to go by: Given the changing landscape of modern workplaces, it’s recommended to skip over individual gifts for the boss, instead pooling together for a group gift.
If you have direct reports, consider something small and thoughtful to set the tone for the season. For co-workers, avoid anything too personal; a small gift such as baked goods is acceptable.
