The Co-worker Gift Guide

Your secret santa gift is officially sorted, courtesy of Not On The High Street, Flying Tiger & Just Mustard. That’s one ticked off the present list at least!

Why is it so hard to choose gifts for co-workers?! On the one hand, we don’t want to offend but we don’t want to be seen as boring stick-in-the-muds either.

And as the gift’s likely to be opened in front of (and judged by) the whole office, we want to impress everyone involved.

Guaranteed to put a smile on even the scroogiest co-workers’ face, these gifts from Not On The High Street and Just Mustard are unique, universally appealing and won’t break the bank either.
