Festive candles are another good gift idea for colleagues, and are easy to gift too. These candles are available in the stores, only till the festival lasts. This makes them unique and special as they are not available the year round.
Another good part about Christmas candles is that you can just keep them on the desk as show pieces and not light them. You can either get the same type for all the co-workers, which will make wrapping easy, or different ones as per preferences in all the co-workers. Choose the bigger and better ones for people you know, as they are also more expensive.

Photo Albums

Photo albums is a nice and different gift idea. Give your co-workers a nice photo album, but make it yourself. If you need to give too many, add something to it. Put some photographs with your colleagues at some official meetings or parties.
