Christmas is usually a time for family and friends. However, there is another group of people that you may be associated with, especially when you are spending your life as an employee. They may be your boss, supervisors, or fellow office-mates that are just across or nearby your desk.

9. Aroma Candles

8. Stuffed Animals

Just one or two of these can be perfect for the busy employee.

When you have given pens for the holidays, office people become more fulfilled with such gifts when they are given something to write on.

In order to encourage the productivity of each employee, even your bosses and higher-ups, then giving them a calendar and a planner can make them at the edge of their performance. After all, an effective worker knows his time, schedule, appointments, goals, and even birthdays and other commitments. Even though the gift may be less expensive, the thought really counts because it indicates that the giver would like the person to be fruitful with his or her use of time. Desk calendars, pocket planners, and even digital calendars, or those printed on mousepads actually work well.
