Cheap Gifts for Coworkers 2024 - Funny Boss Gift Ideas for Christmas or Employee Day 2024

We have to admit, shopping for our coworkers isn’t always the most fun thing to do.  There are a million different gifts we could get them, but most of them are pretty lame and, well, we actually like these people so we want to make sure we gift them something they’ll actually want.

On average, last year people spent on average $30 on their coworkers and $50 on their boss.  The point is that you don’t really have to spend a ton to get them something good.  We’ve researched some of the hottest gifting categories and then chose some of our favorite must-have ideas that actually won’t cost you a ton.  Of course we had to list out a few ideas that were on the more expensive side because, well, you never know.

Most of our gifts are under $30 and many of them are even $10 and under.  Shop our picks for some of the best gifts for your boss and other coworkers in 2024.
