Holiday Gift Guide 2019: For The Office Yankee Swap

Every December my office does a Yankee Swap and we get very into it. People spend weeks thinking about what they'll contribute, hoping to be the one responsible for the most coveted gift. Our team is ruthless when it comes to swapping (more like stealing!) which is what makes the event such a raucous, good time. 

We set the price limit at $15 dollars, but I know the $20 - $25 dollar range is more common. Today's gift list includes seven ideas, all under $20 bucks! 

Let's start with something to keep your coworkers warm on these chilly mornings, Santa's Secret Tea from David's Tea. This combination of Chinese black tea and peppermint leaves also includes candy cane pieces!

Obviously they will need a mug to drink said tea. The Cozy Sweater Nordic Mug has an adorable pattern and comes with a lid (to keep your drink warm) that also doubles as a saucer.

I couldn't resist including this mug too. The Nutcracker design reminds me of all the times I went to see the Boston Ballet.

I absolutely freaked when I found this Uniqlo fleece. Not only does it look outrageously warm, but it's unisex. The best part? It's $14 dollars!

If you prefer to give something practical, this laptop sleeve from ProCase is professional and durable. It's available on Amazon, so even if you procrastinated picking out a swap gift, this can arrive in time.

We have a lot of people in our office who like to cook. For those budding chefs, this mini waffle maker is adorable.

If cocktails are more their speed, consider this clever recipe book titled Tequila Mockingbird. It includes drinks like The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose, The Last of the Mojitos and Are You There God? It's Me, Margarita.
