Your Co-Workers Will Appreciate This Thoughtful Holiday Gift

Worrying over what gifts to buy your co-workers is way too common. Get a gift card that will help you finally feel good about what you give this holiday season.


Stuck in a co-worker holiday gift rut? I was.

Every holiday season, I found myself overthinking what to buy my co-workers to express my gratitude. Do they like books? If so, what kind? Are kitchen utensils an appropriate gift?

Without enough insight, I typically settled for the standard mugs and scented candles. Looking back, I’m embarrassed with how impersonal those co-worker holiday gifts were.

Your co-workers are a critical part of your life.

Although co-worker friendships are often formal, studies have shown that work friendships are critical to overall happiness and well-being. Cultivating these connections has become more crucial since the pandemic, as many employees feel isolated from home stations or hybrid work models. Therefore, it is all the more important to make your co-workers feel appreciated this year.

If you’re searching for a thoughtful co-worker holiday gift, consider sending them a charitable GlobalGiving Gift Card. Your co-worker can choose to redeem it at one or more of the 6,000+ incredible projects from GlobalGiving’s vast nonprofit network. They’re working to replant forests, protect endangered animals, build back better after disasters, and so much more.

Co-worker holiday gifts aren’t easy to buy.

Did you know we each spend about 90,000 hours at work over the course of our lifetimes? Still, sometimes it’s hard to get to know the interests of all our co-workers. Yet, universally, we all have causes we strongly support for different reasons. Personally, I have always cared about supporting women and helping refugees. However, I have struggled with finding the right avenues to extend my support, especially given that volunteering opportunities are currently limited.

Boost your co-workers and your community—with one gift.

The ongoing pandemic has also added financial pressure on community-led nonprofits working around the clock to support their communities, with one in three nonprofits in danger of closing this year.

At GlobalGiving, we believe that financial support is the best way to help, as communities know how to solve their problems, but often lack the financial resources to implement these solutions.

Now, with a GlobalGiving Gift Card, your worry over what to buy your co-worker can end! You choose an amount, a gift card design, and send a card to your co-workers, which will prompt them to redeem for a project.

You can choose from many different designs, including the one pictured above, which leads with a heartwarming message, “Thanks For All You Do!” The featured photo from Fundacion Tiempo de Juego is the perfect symbol of the importance of nonprofits to the future of our world.

The foundation works with children who are vulnerable to the effects of generational poverty. It offers special soccer, art, and cultural programs for kids in Colombia, which helps lower risks from gangs and drugs. Life-changing programs like this one need support around the world.

Give your co-worker a gift that matters this holiday season. Give the gift of giving.
