Office Gifts Under $20 – For All Kinds of Coworkers

Choosing an office gift can be hard, especially if you don’t really know a person. However, the right gift can change the entire office environment. But the wrong gift, may just mess everything up.

Here’s a list of some safe gifts we found, all for about $20 or less (except we threw in some cool expensive robot thing at the end).

Seally Cap Reusable Silicone Food Saver, Set of 3

The Seally Cap is a versatile kitchen utensil that allows you to reseal items such as canned goods, glasses, canned beverages, fruits, veggies & more. A reviewer says, “Clever little gadgets. Very useful, but there is a learning curve on using them. Flipping them inside out around my fingers, then grabbing the rim or edge of the item, through the seally , and then flipping it around the item seems to be the trick.”

Sugru Moldable Glue – Black & White (Pack of 8)

Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue that turns into rubber. A reviewer says, “this is nifty stuff and definitely does what it promises.” Another says, “I used Sugru on both bigger and smaller projects. For smaller projects, 1. the paint on my glasses arms were chipped off, and repeated contact with it caused inflammation on my skin. I covered the glasses arms with a thin layer of Sugru, and it took care of the problem.”

Back to the Roots Organic Mushroom Farm

Back to the Roots is on a mission to Undo Food. In a college class, we learned mushrooms could grow entirely on spent coffee grounds. After watching hours of how-to videos and turning our fraternity kitchen into a big science experiment, we eventually decided to give up our corporate job offers to instead become full-time mushroom farmers. A reviewer says, “It works! Be patient. In my case, the mushrooms appeared on day 7. Oyster mushrooms, in my opinion, have the best taste, very potent and clean flavor.”

Pie Face Showdown Game

The hilarious Pie Face Showdown game brings friends and family together for lots of laugh-out-loud fun. First, players load the arm with whipped cream (not included) or the included sponge. Then each player places their chin on one of the chin rests and at the count of 3, rapidly mashes the button nearest to them, which activates the hand on the throwing arm. The suspense builds as players try to get the arm to move toward their opponent, and when it gets too close to the pie thrower, it’ll spring up, and that player will get creamed! The player who doesn’t get “pie-faced” wins.
