if you work a 9-5 (or, like me, a 9-7ish), you (probably) spend a lot of time at work. in fact, when you really think about it, we spend more time with our coworkers than we do most of the other people in our lives. the older i get, the more i value the people i work with just as much as (if not more than!) the work itself–and i’m happy to say that my coworkers (some of who i’ve worked with for 5 years now) are some of my favorite people in this city.
working with people you like makes the long hours and stressful days infinitely more bearable. which is why i felt it was of utmost importance to dedicate a gift guide to them. so, without further adieu, here are a few fun things for the folks you share your days with.
sparkly gel pens, $12. i am well-known at work for my colorful pens. i have a basic set from muji, but my most favorite ones are my sparkly gel pens, which bring me back to my lisa frank days and make writing to do lists WAY BETTER. buy it.
color-blocked to do list, $12. i am a HUGE rifle paper co. fan, and this color-blocked to do list is no exception. there are three things from rifle on this list (can you pick them out?!), but this one might be my fave. simplicity wins all. buy it.
all the coffee mug, $14. because mondays exist, and so does the rest of the work week. buy it.
aesop resurrection hand balm, $27. the very best hand cream. smells like you just took a trip to the spa–without leaving your desk. buy it.
i am very busy cup, $15. because sometimes your drinkware needs to tell people to leave you alone. buy it.
astrology post-it, $4.50. when logic goes out the window, you’ve got to call in the big guns. for the coworker who loves tarot and crystals and is always talking about mercury being in retrograde. buy it.
forever busy charger, $35. for the days when she’s stuck in conference rooms and can’t plug in. buy it.
rifle paper notebooks (set of 2), $14. for those of us who still take notes the real way (who else hates the insanely loud typers during meetings?!), there are these pretty notebooks. buy it.
fucking great job post-its, $4.50. sometimes, we all need a little reminder that we are killing the game. buy it.
rifle paper floral folders, $14. project folders, made much prettier. buy it.
brooklyn candle co “escapist” candle set, $55. if you can’t get away, you can make your desk/home smell like vacation. buy it.
boobs mug, $34. because everyone should have the chance to drink their morning coffee out of a boob mug. buy it.
