What are some gift ideas, other than gift cards/certificates, for some male co-workers that I don't know that well on a personal level?
I just started a new position (but it’s an employer I have had for about 15 years, just a new department) in a small unit with a woman boss and two male coworkers. I know the boss quite well and she was a friend before she was a boss. The two male coworkers I know and have known for about 10 years each, but I don’t know them well. I know them from seeing them at meetings and parties, work related. I don’t know their habits, likes, dislikes, etc.
I was told we give each other gifts for Christmas. We don’t have to, of course, but I am all for fun and being a member of a team. So, what are some gift ideas for the two guys, other than gift cards? I am not big on giving gift cards as I am willing to put some thought into a gift, and I think a gift card is an “easy out.”
One guy is probably early 40’s and the other guy is in his 50’s. I think they’re both single. They are both parents. One guy is from Africa and the other is Hispanic. That’s about all I know.
