Untitled design 2021 12 07T150204.587

Back to the office and back to KK (Kris Kringle). Yep, it’s that time of year again… Secret Santa is about to make his annual appearance!

We tend to think that Kris Kringle is awkward enough already, but don’t forget that you have most likely been working solo for the last couple of years and may not have even met some of your co-workers yet! So, we understand that you might feel a bit stuck on what to get Hannah from marketing or Karen from the front office.

That’s why we have put together a Kris Kringle guide for you! The perfect gift selection for each office personality type! Chances are if you don’t know your co-workers that well yet, you have at least heard about their office “rep” (reputation).

And who knows, you might even find an office personality that you identify with from the list below too!
