20 Inappropriate Gift Ideas for Coworkers
20. Toy Shotgun
Maybe even combine this gift idea for work friends with a bullseye containing a picture of someone they hate (their boss?). Just be sure to also include a sensor, so that he/she can hide it once the respective person is approaching. Needless to say, this can’t really be part of the Christmas gifts you share at the office, since it’s relatively far from the whole “Christmas spirit.”

19. Alcoholics Anonymous Jewelry Set
Make an unkind suggestion that this person should be spending their Friday nights in some other way than drinking. It’s for their own good, anyway. After the coworker takes the hint from this perfect Secret Santa gift idea (be sure you stay secret), then your favorite bar stool from your favorite bar will be free of work-related problems ruining your night.

18. Always Hungry? Book
Who can finish a Mars bar in a blink of an eye? Your coworker can! Give them the best of the best in terms of holiday gift ideas for coworkers: a self-help book about laying off the yummy food. Why is it good for the holidays? Because they’ll feel especially pressured to abstain from all the goodies that invade the fridge that time of the year.

17. Donald Trump Mug
Whether your coworker supports Trump or not, this mug is still the perfect amount of inappropriate for an office gift. If you’re giving this gift among all the other Secret Santa gift ideas for coworkers, it will surely be the highlight of the evening. Make your company great again!

16. Plastic Ball & Chain
This may seem a bit harsh, but remember it’s one of the cheap gift ideas for coworkers out there, and it won’t really be an actual ball and chain, since it’s made of plastic. This would make for an awesome gift, and even if your coworker might burst into tears, at least everyone else will really laugh this one out, won’t they?

15. Ready America Emergency Kit
You can give this gift at a Halloween party to suggest the world is about to end soon, so your coworker might need an emergency kit. You can also leave the coworker at the edge of a forest with the emergency kit for a few minutes, and then come back with all the other coworkers and throw a campfire party. Sure, this might sound cruel, but it can also be great fun.

14. Backwards, Counterclockwise Wall Clock
Never ask that coworker to tell you the time again. This is an especially great gift idea for coworkers who like to look at the clock a lot. It might cause some matter of confusion, and might even make said coworker spend more time than necessary at the office, but it’s definitely a unique gift idea.

13. Chained to the Desk Book
Because acknowledging there’s a problem is the first step towards solving it, or towards breaking down from stress and exhaustion – we’ll let you be the judge. This present is a self-help book for people who persistently will not help themselves to some free time. The phrase “mental collapse” on the back-cover will really put things into perspective.

12. Inflatable Mattress
Notice how once in a while you’re so tired that you dread the thought of going through the whole drive home ritual? I mean – who wants to go home when they can easily sleep at work with this inflatable mattress? After finishing work at 11 PM, it’s actually more cost-efficient for the corporation if the employee spends the night in the office before beginning the next workday at 6 AM.

11. 36 Fake Moustaches
This one is a pretty cheap gift for a coworker, and we thought it might make a great gift for the office weirdo. With these moustaches, the guy (assuming it’s a guy) can warn off nice people about to engage in friendly conversation. Keep small-talkers at bay with a moustache a day! They should make this their new motto.

10. You’ll Never Get Rich (DVD)
We don’t know what the actual movie is about, but the title is all that matters here. In fact, you can simply print it on a piece of paper. The coworker will suddenly realize the futility of their dreams, the meaninglessness of their whole existence, and the incredible odds against them ever becoming a rock star. Still, we wouldn’t count on the person’s productivity after this gift.

9. The Official BS Button
Call it as it is with this official BS button. With a maddening buzzer sound, this small device is perfect. For you, of course, not for the coworker. Each time the coworker says something completely bonkers, surprise them by hitting the BS button. It will either make you the official anti-BS enforcer of the company, or it will get you fired. Either way, it deserves a shot.

8. Industrial Strength Duct Tape
Industrial strength duct tape is actually a serious gift. Besides strapping the coworker to his/her seat, it’s also a really good thing to have around the office. It fixes right about everything, and it’s also a good thing to have when dealing with disobeying employees. All that needs to be done is to keep the duct tape somewhere easy to spot.

7. Work: How to Find Joy and Meaning in Each Hour of the Day
Another self-help book for another day. We also recommend assigning the coworker the task of bringing reading notes. Because who doesn’t like doing extra work-related work in their free time (maybe even during the holidays)? After all, this is the surest way to find joy and meaning in every hour of work.

6. Painkillers (Ibuprofen)
This is not a gag gift. This is an actually useful one. And you don’t even need a prescription for ibuprofen. The only side-effect is that it will stop working after a while, so it’s best to limit the number of headaches you give the respective coworker for now.

5. You’ll Love This Book as Much as You Hate Your Job (someecards)
Living your whole life in a cubicle can be gloomy. Save your Secret Santa coworker from depression by giving him/her this cute little collection of Someecards to put around the office. Besides being obscenely funny, they will also remind him that work is a jungle that needs to be tamed with light-spirited humor.

Some of you may be looking for gift ideas for the boss. This one is the perfect one if the boss can take a joke. Have you ever been in a situation where you desperately needed something and the boss plainly said no? Of course, you have! There’s a saying: you go in wanting a vacation, you go out questioning your employment status. It’s the circle of life (or corporate affairs).

2. Cards Against Humanity
The point of this game is to be offensive, or against humanity. The cards that can show up while playing range from disturbing, to sick, to cute, to sad truths, and to extremely violent mental images. All of which should be considered perfectly normal in a work environment, right?

1. How to Find a Job When There Are No Jobs
They say “give a man a job, and he will eat for a time decided by a mutual-agreement.” But give a coworker a manual to browsing the job market, and that person will spend an eternity wondering if they’re going to get fired or not.
