Saving Money on Coworker Gifts

Choosing the right co worker gifts requires some forethought and skill. But this year, if you are like so many of us who feel lucky just to have a job, you are more concerned about saving a few dollars on those gifts.

So, if you have a number of co-workers you are buying gifts for be sure to plan ahead and get started on your shopping early. Usually, a few weeks before black Friday you will start to see some great deals on discount items, just to clear out some room for the holiday rush. Take advantage of these discounts and consider a few more short cuts to save more money when buying co-worker gifts.

#1 Look for items that come in bulk packages or buy items in bulk and give them to everyone. Things like candles, candy, and even statues or bookends are available in bulk quantities. You'll always get a bigger discount when you opt to buy more, rather than buying one item here, and one item there. If you are shopping online for coworker gifts, you'll also save on the shipping costs.

#2 Spend cheap but don't buy cheap. There are great items that are just as expensive looking and well-made as those really costly gifts you see everywhere. However, because of overstocks, or lower demand for some reason, the price is not as high. Focus on these items and consider getting them engraved to make them more original.

#3 Choose wisely in regards to who you buy for and how much you spend. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot on the intern, or your boss' secretary, it will make sense to spend more on your boss, or the new manager you'll be working with after the holidays.

Always select nice things you won't find in box stores to avoid getting something someone else in the office might buy. There are many designer items from manufacturers who focus on inter-office gifts as their niche. These items are perfect for coworker gifts. You'll find accessories from Bey Berk and Dacasso are among the best.
