Christmas is just around the corner now, and let’s face it – you’re pressed for time to find just the perfect gift for each colleague. It’s difficult figuring out exactly what they want since you only see them at work, not to mention you won’t want to look like you’re biased if you give vastly different gifts to each co-worker!
We’ve got a Christmas gift-giving hack for you here: purchase gift sets with multiple similar items and then split them out for each recipient. You’ll also have fun thinking about which lipstick shade or scent is going to suit which colleague best!
In this list, we’ve helped you put together some gift set ideas no matter the size of your team.
If you have a team of 3 (or 6)…
1. Innisfree My Body Miniature Set
What it is: An affordable, versatile set of body-care products that will come in handy no matter who it’s for. This exclusive holiday gift set comes with a miniature Body Cleanser and Body Lotion (60ml each) in three scents: Cherry Blossom (floral and fruity), Cotton Flower (fresh and powdery), and Gardenia (floral). Each bottle has the packaging design from Innisfree’s 2017 Green Christmas campaign theme “String Art”. It’ll definitely put anyone in the mood for a cozy holiday season! You can split this set three ways or six, or mix and match scents according to the intended recipients.
2. Kiehl’s Hand Me Some Love
What it is: Three ultra-moisturising products formulated to provide all-day care and protection from the harsh conditions of most air-conditioned offices. The Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (75ml) is suitable for those with very dry skin – its formula contains a blend of botanical oils and natural wax to soothe and condition skin. The set also comes with a lip balm (3ml) and Kiehl’s customer-favourite Ultra Facial Cream (7ml). If you have a team of three, this set can form part of their gifts. Better yet, you might consider getting each colleague one set so everyone can enjoy that festive glow together!
