I know Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating with those you love, but just think about how many hours you’re actually spending with your coworkers throughout the week. Like them, love them, loathe them; there’s no denying that they are still a big part of your life. Which is why giving Valentine’s Day gifts to co-workers isn't a weird thing or even a terrible idea.
The gifts below vary — they range from food to desk accessories to office organizers to cute office décor. There’s an adorable emoji lunch bag perfect for the person who loves to bring lunch every day. There’s a box of chocolates that look so delicious that you may just end up sharing with your coworker. And, of course, there are some desk organizers that you can not only help make their workspace become less chaotic with — but you can help them set it up as well.
No matter what kind of office environment you are in, it’s still possible to show the people you work side-by-side with how much you care about them and their work. Even if you feel hostile towards some, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to make amends and to treat them with care. I mean, there’s already so much hate in this world, we may as well treat those around us with the utmost respect, right?
