Halloween is the starting gun; the holiday race is on. Fall disappears at a breakneck pace, its time to start thinking about the winter gift-giving season. With the Recession making funds tighter, navigating office gift giving is trickier than ever. Finding appropriate gifts for office Secret Santas or your boss is never easy. Doing so on a budget is tougher still.
No matter the size of your budget, keep in mind a few key considerations when shopping to ensure your gift is appropriate and well received. Gifting at Work: What's Right? What's Wrong? outlines 10 useful Do's and Don'ts. They include:
Cash-strapped workers will want to get creative in gift giving. Harvard Business Review blogger Rosabeth Moss Kanter has wonderful suggestions in 12 Gifts for Cash-Short, Recession-Weary Workplaces.
My favorite ideas? Bosses taking a morning to serve subordinates breakfast or the priceless gift of time off. Send everyone home early one day to finish their own holiday shopping. You can't put a dollar amount on time off during the frenzied holiday season.
Finally, consider the sentiment of the season and make a donation to a charity close to the recipient's heart.
The website JustGive.org makes donating to a range of charities simple.
