This is always one of my favorite gift guides to put together because I honestly believe that when it comes to gift giving, what matters isn't how much it cost but the thought that goes into it.

These mostly unisex picks which are both fun and practical would make suitable white elephant gifts and they would also work for your friends as well as coworkers.

I like the copper fruit bowl. Out of all the copper bowls I have, ironically, I haven't a copper one for fruit. :) I also use humidifiers and love the idea of this USB powering element. Some of these are perfect stocking fillers as well. Wish you a lovely start to the new week Rowena. :)
