8 Kris Kringle gifts that won’t get you fired
Posted November 14, 2013, by Andrea Riddell
So you pulled Rita from accounts in the office Kris Kringle draw, when you really wanted Antonio from sales. Now what? You were building up such a rapport with Antonio and you hardly know Rita at all! Finding a suitable Kris Kringle gift that simultaneously says nothing offensive about your receiver and says everything about your awesomeness is difficult. But don’t worry; we’ve got your back with some gift ideas for all the Ritas* out there.
*By Rita we mean anyone of any age, sex or taste.
Mini shopping cart
People love miniature things. And this applies to this mini shopping cart. For someone who thoroughly enjoys the weekly grocery shop more than most people, or who has a penchant for eccentric storage ideas.
New York magnetic poetry
Most people have fridges. And most people love New York. Can’t lose.
Snowman cookie kit
Rather than slapping a red bow on the top of a Walker’s Shortbread tin, make Rita do some of the armwork with a make-your-own cookie kit. There is also a good chance that she’ll be so enamoured with your gift that she’ll bring you some to sample.
I don’t like alcohol. Said no one ever.
Chocolate mint tea
Or play it safe by giving Rita some tea in a fancy box. But inject some fun by choosing a quirky flavour. You can’t go wrong with a classic combination (did someone say Mint Slice?) and even if it tastes crap, as most flavoured teas are wont to do, the novelty will still impress.
If Rita is a young, female 20-something who always looks well groomed, then this gift will be more exciting than the rose-smelling bath bombs you had your eye on.
If Rita is a child trapped in an adult’s body then she’ll have hours of fun – 28, in fact – with this awesome gift.
