2 Coworker Gift Ideas well under $10 each

The organization I work for has very strict rules on gift-giving: it’s generally discouraged but if you choose to exchange, the value of the gift has a $10 limit (and no booze). $10 these days won’t get you very far, so here are 2 coworker gift ideas that are not cheesy and come in well below the budget.

  1. Stovetop Potpurri

I found this idea on Pinterest and made it my own! I put the following ingredients in a bag and printed out an instruction tag on how to make.

  • 2 oranges (whole)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 3 teaspoons cloves
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 sprigs rosemary

My mother used to do this at Christmas and the smell always brings back fond memories of my childhood!

 

Hot Cocoa & Chocolate Goodie Bag

I saw this idea on At Home With The Barkers and thought “genius!” (Although I must admit that I forgot to take a pic of the goodie bags before lugging all 32 of them into work, so photo cred goes to AHWTB)

What you’ll need:

  • Goodie bags (I bought mine from the Dollar Tree – best store ever!)
  • Candy canes
  • Bags of small marshmallows (put a handful of marshmallows in sandwich baggies)
  • Boxes of Starbucks Hot Cocoa packets (8 per box)
  • Several bags of Godiva, Lindt and Ghirardelli chocolates¬†(I used peppermint bark, coconut, mint chocolate chip, and sea salt caramel)

I bought enough of each ingredients to make 32 goodie bags and placed one of each of the above (including one of each kind of chocolate)and tied it off with curly ribbon to make a bow – viola!
