Chances are, you spend more time with your coworkers than the family you live with. (Thanks, corporate American culture and your never-ending deadlines!) Luckily, you probably have a work wife who helps you enjoy all those hours at the office. Maybe this person is on your team and she’s the one you go to when you need to bounce ideas off someone? Or maybe she just sits near the pantry and you’re constantly chatting her up while you wait for your coffee to brew? If we know you, you’ve got your person.
Show her how much you appreciate her (and that you think she’s doing a great job!) with a thoughtful little gift box. Fill it with goodies and leave it on her desk next to all those scary-looking memos. She’ll be delighted to find something on her desk that doesn’t require a follow-up PowerPoint presentation.
