Buying a present for your co-worker or work colleague can be tricky. You don’t want it to be too personal, but on the other hand, we do spend most of our lives at work, so you want it to be thoughtful.
Getting the balance just right is important. For a male co-worker to buy his work wife a bottle of expensive perfume could cause problems at home. Likewise, if a secretary bought her boss some fancy underwear, we doubt his wife would be amused.
Better to keep it fun, simple and thoughtful without going too over the top.
