Best Gift Hamper to Gift to a Colleague

Often, we make our best friends at work. When we spend as much as five days with a person during any given week and go through the same mutual struggles and share the same successes, we’re bound to develop a connection. We might even find Monday mornings a little more endurable when we know we’ll be working with our colleague or ‘work buddy’.

Occasions may arise when you would like to offer your work friend a gift as a token of your appreciation. Perhaps they have just received a promotion or achieved success. Perhaps their contract isn’t being renewed, or they are taking a year off to travel. Maybe it’s their 5th year work anniversary, or simply their birthday. As can be seen, there are many occasions when you might find yourself searching for Australian-wide gift hampers for colleagues.

It’s also true that sometimes our work can impose awkward conventions on us. Even if we aren’t particularly close to a colleague, we might feel the need to ‘go through the motions’ and acknowledge them with a gift. Otherwise, we risk worsening office politics or morale. On these occasions it might be best to bite the bullet for the greater good.

Whether you’re buying because you want to or buying because you’re obliged to, here are some points to consider when buying a gift hamper for a work colleague:

1. What should the gift hamper to my colleague include?

This will depend on what your colleague likes and your workplace culture. If you have enjoyed a few beverages with your colleague before and this is appropriate in your workplace, then a gift hamper with alcohol may be a fun hamper to offer. A safer option, and one for the sweet tooth out there, is a hamper with confectionary such as chocolate. If you sense they are stressed or if the gift is given in relation to a stressful occurrence, then a self care hamper is a top candidate.

2. How can you personalise the gift hamper?

The purpose of the gift hamper is to show your appreciation, and by going to the length of personalising your hamper, you can achieve this. A personalised hamper may include a hamper that is specifically tailored to a situation, and the best hamper companies will have these pre-made and listed on their online store for your convenience: with options including birthday hampers, Christmas hampers, bridal hampers, and baby hampers.

3. Might custom cookies be more appropriate?

Continuing the theme of personalisation, the best gift hamper companies may have a product that makes their hamper selection particularly special and unique. At The Sweet Box, our stand-out feature is our delicious and stylish custom cookies and personalised cookies Sydney, including Christmas sugar cookies, baby shower cookies, bombonieres for weddings and other Sydney custom cookies.

Our custom cookies are offered throughout our hamper range, but they can also be bought separately if you are on a smaller budget or don’t want to be seen to be going ‘over the top’, while still giving a gift that your colleague will love. Hopefully they spare you a bite!
