Holiday Gifting

Reuse a bag or box if it can look nice. Add new tissue paper and remember to remove the tags or any evidence of regifting!

If someone gives you a gift that you cannot use and you want to give it to someone else, then admit it was given to you and you thought they would enjoy it more than you.

Office Gifts

Have a few extra gift cards in the event you are surprised.

Have a plan with your team. Are we buying? Who are we buying for? Spending guidelines?

Avoid anything too personal, sexy, or very expensive.
