A Magic Umbrella

Finally! An umbrella designed to help you get out of your car without getting you soaking wet. This umbrella is inverted, so when it opens you're totally protected and dry. Obviously, it was designed by a genius. It also comes in 20 different colors and patterns. 

Tell Them Who's Boss

These hilarious desk signs would lighten the mood in any office. Whether you're choosing a gift for your boss or a boss wannabe, you can pick a funny phrase that will surely keep everyone laughing for weeks to come. 

Take Out, Fake Out

Encourage your work besties to bring their lunch every day with this fun, reusable insulated lunch bag. Sure, ordering out is sometimes more fun, but with this lunch sac you can pretend your healthy lunch is actually delish Chinese take out. 

Cute Overload

This adorable coffee table book is a great choice for any dog-loving coworkers. Chock-full of colorful puppy photos, each dog's story is shared documentary style, with cheeky commentary from one of Instagram's most popular power influencers: The Dogist.

Shop Till You Drop

Help your coworkers get serious about caring for our environment with these reusable, handy shopping totes. Baggu makes stylish tote bags in a variety of colors and patterns, and this set of two easily folds up into small, included carrying cases that are perfect to keep stashed in a work bag or the glove compartment of your car. 

Pump Up the Jam

If you have an iPhone, chances are you've lost more than your fair share of Apple EarPods headphones ... hands up if you've been there. So an extra pair of headphones to keep in reserve, either in a desk drawer or in a purse, is a super practical gift idea that your colleagues will love. 

Get Charged Up

Keeping your smartphone fully charged seems to be a never-ending battle. But this fab portable charger will ensure that your coworker never gets that dreaded low battery alert again. They can easily attach the charger to their keychain so they can access a battery boost anywhere, any time.  

Let the Music Play 

Here's a super clever white elephant gift idea that any music-loving colleague is sure to really dig: a 3 month gift subscription to Spotify's premium music streaming service. Your pal can make their own playlists, stream current hits, or even listen to podcasts at work with their new Spotify subscription. 

Bubble Trouble

Ok, we admit that listening to your coworkers blowing bubbles all day with their gum might be slightly annoying, but it won't be if you get to join in too! And with a giant, yummy tub of bubblegum like this one that your bud can keep on their desk, the whole office can take part in the gum smacking. Good news/bad news. 

Express Yourself

Here's a gift that can help your coworkers really let their creativity shine: a blank sketch book. This is an awesome gift for anyone you work with who might have expressed an interest in getting more creative or artsy in their free time. You could even pair it with some colored pencils or watercolors to really help kickstart their artistic adventures.
