Special Honors

The Vermonter by Jasper Hill Farm The foodie in your life is bound to appreciate The Vermonter by Jasper Hill Farm, which offers a trio of mouth-watering cheeses, including a complex, natural rind cheddar, as well as hearty crackers and roasted nuts. It's a little expensive, but each item is top quality and packaged to please the eye as well as the palate. jasperhillfarm.com

Editor's Notes

May 13, 2020:

Coworkers can be hard to shop for, but we've kept items that range from funny to functional, so there should be something for everyone. We opted to remove the Premium Nature Bath Bombs due to concerns about their overall quality, as well as the Shrimp Bubble Aquatic Ecosystem, since the little critters inside can die — kind of a bummer for the recipient. But when it comes to lightening a coworker's mood, we like the coffee cup from A Mug To Keep Designs and its perfectly apt saying: Let me drop everything and work on your problem. We added another humorous, useful option, as well, the Guajolote Prints Novelty Memo Pads Bundle. They're more fun than standard notepads, and you'll get four designs in each package. We decided to keep the Fred & Friends Daily Mood Flipchart since it's such a great conversation starter, but be aware that the moods it offers are a little too off-the-wall for some.

As for more practical gifts, we kept both the Savvy Infusion Water Bottle and the iColor Lunch Bag, since, after all, everyone needs to eat and drink. The latter is especially great for your coworkers who bring lunch in a plastic bag, as this adult lunch box will help them look and feel more put together. For your coworker who is always drinking coffee and nibbling on something sweet, we added the Bean Box Classic Gift Box. You can choose between a whole bean and ground coffee option, but note that for the price, there are not a lot of goodies. Consider this one for the coworker who values quality over quantity.
