Valentine’s Day isn’t just about the chocolate, candy hearts, and romance. This holiday, take the opportunity to show some appreciation to the men and women who work alongside you every day. Spread the love to your coworkers with these simple, yet thoughtful Valentine gifts.

Homemade Goodies

You don’t have to be Betty Crocker to whip up a plate of brownies or warm, chocolate chip cookies to share with your office mates or coffee shop confidants. Whether it is from a box or from scratch, everyone appreciates a sweet treat on this special day. Homemade goodies come straight from the heart. Try this easy and delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Coffee Mug

We all know what it’s like to start the day without a steaming mug of joe- horrible! Make sure your co-worker always starts her day off right with her own special coffee mug. Monogrammed mugs offer a touch of class and personalization while an inspirational quote can motivate anyone who reads it through their day. Throw in a gift card to her favorite spot or a bag of coffee beans for good measure.

Personalized Stationery

Personalized paper products are a thoughtful and useful gift. A package of cards comes in handy for multiple occasions. Outfit your co-workers’ desks with a custom notepad made just for them with their name, phone number, and email. They’ll never reach for a scrap of paper during phone meetings and brainstorm sessions ever again!

Desk Plant

Add some life to your co-worker’s desk with a pint-sized succulent or potted plant. Plants bring a piece of the outdoors in to create a more inspiring, calming space.

Scented Candle

A candle makes a simple, yet classic, Valentine gift for anyone. Find a calming lavender scent or fresh, energizing cucumber so your coworker can relax in the evening or work away to the gentle flicker of a candlelight.
