Gift ideas for colleagues on February 23
Although the Day of Defender of the Fatherland will not come so soon, but you need to choose gifts in advance, because this is an important and responsible matter. And what can you give to your colleagues?
What should be the gift?
What could be a gift for a male colleague? Define the criteria by which to choose it:
- In any case, even a small gift should be pleasant. By the way, to make such a gift, it is not at all necessary to spend a lot of money. If your imagination works well, then you can come up with something bright and original, but not too expensive.
- If the donated thing is useful, then a colleague will certainly appreciate it, so consider this and do not give cute trinkets (the representatives of the stronger sex simply do not see in them the meaning).
- Nothing personal! In any case, it is not necessary to give a colleague underwear or socks, even if you are on friendly or close relationships, it is simply indecent. It is not necessary to give perfumes, they should be chosen by a beloved defender of the fatherland.
- If you have a young team, in which there is a light friendly atmosphere, then you can choose cool gifts. But a serious middle-aged man may not appreciate such a surprise.
And remember that the most important thing is attention. So even the most inexpensive gift, presented with all my heart, will delight any defender of the fatherland.
How to find out what men want?
The preferences and tastes of men are undoubtedly different. But how to find out? There are several options:
- Casual conversation. Go to lunch with your male colleagues and try to talk to them. For example, start a conversation about hobbies and interests, it will give you a tip. Then reproduce the entire conversation in your memory and remember who is interested in something.
- A little trick. Tell them that you need to choose a gift for February 23 for a friend or brother (the spouse will not work, because you can give him something personal and intimate) and ask the male half of the team what to choose. Memorize all the proposals and those who put them forward, because everyone will advise what he would not mind taking possession of.
- Vote. And this option is possible. For example, if there are many men in a team, then it will not be easy to find out the preferences of each.Prepare some forms and offer several categories, such as “cosmetics”, “hobby” (at this point the voter will have to indicate his hobbies), “useful accessories”, “jokes” and so on. Each colleague will have to vote and do not forget to specify your name. After the vote, you will analyze the results and will be able to choose a suitable and useful gift for everyone.
Individual approach or collective intelligence?
Undoubtedly, an individual approach is preferable, as everyone will receive something special and will understand that the choice of the gift was spent time and effort, which, of course, is very nice.
But if there are a lot of men in the team, then it is simply impossible to find out the preferences of each. In this case, it is worth choosing collective gifts. But it’s still not worth giving the same surprises, they should differ in some characteristics (even in colors or shapes).
