The holiday season brings with it the inevitable gift exchange at home and at work, and while it’s a warm occasion on most accounts, the pressure of gift shopping for colleagues and bosses can be overwhelming. In defense of gift givers everywhere, it’s hard to find a gift that your boss or coworker actually wants to receive.

This year, we’ve got your covered. Check out our picks for great gifts for coworkers that won’t disappoint.

1. Gourmet Gift Baskets

Gift baskets are a catch-all: they combine the things that most everyone loves, like delicious snacks, coffee, and other treats, with beautiful presentation. Choosing a gourmet gift basket for your boss or colleague is easy. There are plenty of options that suit every budget:

+ Wine and cheese gift baskets

+ Dean & Deluca gift baskets

+ Harry & David gift baskets

+ Gourmet snacks gift baskets

Wine, chocolate, gourmet snacks, jams, specialty cheeses… These gift baskets are full of irresistible treats, and the presentation isn’t bad either.

2. A Round of Golf

Chicagoland is one of the best cities in the country for public golf courses, with a great selection of beautiful greens for all skill levels. If your boss or colleague is a golf enthusiast but doesn’t often get a chance to play, a round of golf is the perfect gift.

Consider purchasing a round or two at any one of these notable Chicagoland courses:

+ Cog Hill Golf & Country Club

+ ThunderHawk Golf Club

+ Pine Meadow Golf Course

3. Tickets to a Chicago Game

Chicago is one of the country’s sports capitals, and the fans here are passionate, to put it lightly. Lots of our favorite teams play throughout the holiday season and into the new year. Scoring some great seats at a game is a great gift for the boss or colleague in your life who needs a chance to unwind.

+ Chicago Blackhawks

+ Chicago Bulls

+ Chicago Bears

+ Chicago White Sox

4. Corporate Car Service

If you know your boss or colleague has a challenging and tiring commute, consider booking a Chicago car service to provide them with chauffeured transportation for a week. Chauffeured transportation provides your coworker or boss with the opportunity to enjoy their commute while someone else drives. They can use the time to get extra work done, relax, or take a quick catnap. It’s the perfect gesture to show you care and provide the person with some much-needed down time.
