Holiday Gift Guide 2015: For The Yankee Swap

It's day two of the Pop.Bop.Shop. Holiday Gift Guide and today we're talking about gifts for one of my favorite occasions, the office Yankee Swap.

My family is Jewish so growing up I never took part in any kind of holiday swap. As an adult, it's been a blast to partake in this annual (sometimes feisty) tradition.

Below you'll find eight ideas for bringing the most coveted gift to the swap.

I'm on the West Elm website at least once a week and when I found these lacquered desktop accessories I had to hold myself back from ordering the entire set! What co-worker wouldn't want some extra shine in their cube?

Also from West Elm, this brass hashtag paper weight. Because #duh.

Continuing the gold theme, I love these dinosaur planters. They are totally goofy, but oh-so-fun.

This year I've been super into pencils (see my 2015 Birthday Wish List) and what better way to encourage a teammate than with pencils that shout, "You got this."

I don't know about you, but I keep track of all my plans and meetings in a paper datebook. I know it's old fashioned, but I swear by it. Since a datebook is kind of a personal thing, instead add a desktop calendar to the mix for the fellow schedulers in the office.


Though I venture out and buy lunch every day, most of my co-workers cook and bring their home made meals. Offer them a stylish way to transport their goods with this Herschel Lunch Bag, sold on Zappos.

Another Zappos find, these gorgeous LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Mohair gloves. Perfect for the commute!

I have saved the best Yankee Swap gift for last. This is particularly brilliant for co-workers who have to travel a lot. I bring you the carry on cocktail kit! Everything you need to make two cocktails, all within the liquid restrictions for carry on luggage.

If you saw something you liked on this list, hurry up and order it! Chances are your office's Yankee Swap is in the next two weeks.

You can find all of these ideas on my Pinterest board and even more ideas in past Pop.Bop.Shop. Gift Guides, which are all listed below.

Happy swapping!
