4. Plants

Plants make the greatest gifts. Try getting minimal maintenance plants such as bamboo, air plants, succulents, or even a nice terrarium. These plants work great in the office – they typically only need to be  watered once a week and don’t require direct sunlight.

Wine is always a great gift! A bottle of wine with a cute note will help to quench some thirst palettes this year.
