Do's and Don'ts for Office Gift Giving?

Philippines

I work for a relatively small office. All in all we're less than 20 and I'm close with around 3-5 people whom I want to give something for Christmas. 1) Do I have to give everyone something or stick to just the people I'm close to? 2) If it's better for me to give everyone, what type of gift would be suitable for colleagues and managers alike? 3) I have Jewish and Muslim colleagues. Is there anything that I should avoid giving to them so as not to offend them? Many thanks.

I think that you should only have to give gift to them who are close to you, not to every person in the office, and if you have some confusion in choosing best gifts for your colleagues then you may check the link below. http://www.corporategiftsmumbai.net

In my view, snookumsnort, you should present gifts to 3-5 people only, who are around you and you have very good relation with them. This will make your friendship more strong. In other cases, presenting gifts to all 20 friends would be a general kind of relation, which in fact, would not help you at all.

Out of your total staff, only a few of them are christians. There is no problem in giving the gifts only to them. It is better to go to their residence and give it rather than giving it inoffice in front of all other colleagues. It is not a good practice, when you are not giving gifts to all, it is better to give the gifts to those who are celebrating christmas, the gifts be given at their residence.
