The 28 Best Gifts for Coworkers that Will Look Great on a Desk


Best Overall

Whether you've been on TikTok or not, you've probably come across the lululemon belt bag. It's made of lightweight polyester and nylon fabric that won't hold you down while you're making moves and can be worn across your body, over the shoulder or at the waist. That's what makes it a great gift for anyone since it's so versatile. Just hurry to buy it now because so many people have been waiting to get their hands on one.

2. Jenni Kayne Alpaca Basketweave Throw

Best Blanket

Not only is alpaca cozy and warm, but this blanket also has a thick, chunky knit that that will add some lovely texture to your living room.

3. The Nue Co. Magnesium Ease

Best Wellness Gift

A few spritzes of this magnesium spray, and boom, bring on the relaxation. The formula has plenty of the soothing botanicals to facilitate a deep sleep and aid muscle recovery for all those rigorous workouts. Psst: Our own staffers swear by the powers of magnesium for a better night's sleep.

4. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

Best Leggings

These leggings have a high compression, which helps smooth and sculpt to keep you supported through the day. The effect is an ultimate sleek but comfortable look that can be dressed up or down.

5. SolaWave Skincare Therapy Wand

Best Skincare Tool

If the last few years have aged you like crazy, you aren't alone. Enter the SolaWave: a device that uses red light therapy, microcurrents, facial massage and therapeutic warmth to boost your skin’s youthful glow, fade blemishes and fine lines among other things.

6. Whisker Litter-Robot 3

Best for the Cat Lover

Your cat-lady bestie can now ditch the manual kitty litter box and marvel in the fact that she no longer has to scoop clumps of waste from a box anymore. This automatic kitty box helps reduce odors, too. Oh, and nope, you don't need a specific litter to make her work her magic. "Inside the app, I can view how often my cats have been using the Litter-Robot and make adjustments, like turning the night light on and off (yes, there is a blue night light so your cats won’t trip on themselves if they have to go at 3 a.m.)," PureWow Writer Sarah Ashley reports.

7. Skims Cozy Knit Pullover

Coziest Gift

It's officially cozy season, and if you don't own a fluffy sweater to keep you warm, you're doing it wrong. This oversized pullover is a best-seller and we'd be lying if we said we didn't already own it in a multiple of the chic muted colors.

8. Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream

For the Luxury Beauty Lover

Developed by Professor Augustinus Bader, one of the world’s leading experts in stem cell research, The Rich Cream is formulated with a combination of natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesized molecules to activate the body’s natural regeneration process. In other words, it fades fine lines, plumps, adds a glow and actually makes skin look more youthful (we would know; we tried it).

9. Lovehoney Rose Vibrator

For Yourself

Who are we kidding? We’re typically at the top of our gift list, and 2022 is no different. This year, we’re treating ourselves to a vibrator, all in the name of self-care. This model is immensely popular for a reason: It focuses its pleasure right on your most sensitive area with seven modes that don’t make a peep.

10. Caslon Brielle Bootie

For the Trendy Girl

These boots sold out during this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and we can see why. Not only are they trés chic, but they're also water resistant and super comfortable to (ahem) boot.

11. Buffy Breeze Comforter

Best Comforter

A comforter refresh is a lovely gift if you have someone in your life that's been using the same bedding since college. This one is made of a 300 thread count, TENCEL lyocell material which is extremely warm and cozy, offering breathability so you don't overheat.

12. Ullo Wine Purifier

For the Wine Lover

Wine lovers anticipate the rich, yet dry taste of a musky red hitting their lips after a long day. Gift this person in your life with a tool that will purify and aerate the taste of their chosen vino so they can savor every sip. It removes sulfites (less chance of a hangover, hallelujah) and restores the taste for a better experience.

13. Our Place Always Pan

For the Budding Chef

The Always Pan is made of cast aluminum; the inside has a ceramic nonstick coating, while the outside is finished in matte silicone and it's available in several Instagrammable color options (we’re partial to the stunning lavender hue).

14. Winc Wine Subscription

Best Wine Subscription

Bottles are discounted steeply from their original price and start at just $13 for members. And there’s something to suit everyone’s taste, from vegan wines to low sugar ones, organic varieties and more. Each month, they’ll get credits that can be used to purchase the wines of their choosing or they can opt to receive pro picks from the Winc team based on their unique flavor profile.

15. Dyson V11 Pro Stick Vacuum

For the Neat Freak

The digital motor has twice the suction of other cord-free vacuums, and the whole-machine filtration system captures 99.97 percent of microscopic dust particles. Did we mention the high torque cleaner head automatically detects and adapts to different floor types on its own? Come to think of it, we might need one for ourselves, too.

16. Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH-MD Lash Serum

For the Eyelash Extension Lover

We are always down for a solution to our dream of having beautiful, long lashes. We’re talking full, fluttery natural lashes, which take nothing more to achieve than a simple swipe of serum across the lash line before bed. In a world where we can’t run out every two weeks to get an eyelash extension refill, it more than makes up for the results.

17. Fellow Stagg Ekg Electric Kettle

For the Coffee Snob

There's the Dunkin’ fans who are happy with a quick cup of Joe, and there’s the pour-over coffee crowd that patiently waits for their freshly ground Colombian beans to steep to perfection. This kettle is for the latter coffee (or tea) drinker, with its super-thin, easy-to-use spout that gives optimum control over the scalding hot water inside.

18. Brooklinen Luxe Move-in Bundle

For the Recent College Grad

Brooklinen is known for its quality sheet sets, and this is the king (or queen) of them all. It has literally everything you need for a new bed setup including sheets, two pillows and a comforter from the brand’s recently relaunched line of down and down alternative options. It’s basically gifting someone a good night’s sleep, every single night.

19. Nuface Trinity Facial Toning Device

For the Facial Lover

Our aunt has said that if she ever becomes a millionaire, getting a weekly at-home facial would be high on her list of non-negotiables. Until that dream turns into a reality, we can gift her the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device. This baby uses microcurrent technology to stimulate the muscles deep within the face to help tighten, tone and lift for a more sculpted appearance. According to reviewers, users will notice the difference right away and continue to see results over time, so it’s perfect for anyone who wants the instant gratification of a facial.

20. Cariuma Ibi Knit Sneaker

For the Environmentalist

These eco-conscious sneakers racked up a wait list of over 5,000 people thanks to their comfy, lightweight, minimalist aesthetic for both men and women. But it’s the brand's commitment to sustainability that really make these special. They’re made from self-regenerating bamboo and recycled plastics, and for each pair purchased, Cariuma plants two trees in the Brazilian Rainforest to directly aid in reforestation efforts.

21. Nordstrom Zella Live-In Leggings

For Your Workout Buddy

When a pair of workout leggings are so incredible, they inspire more than 7,000 people to write glowing reviews, you just have to try them. We’ve put these to the test and can attest to their butt-lifting and body-contouring abilities. Plus, they’re made with moisture-wicking polyester and spandex fabric and have a no-slip waistband that doesn’t have to be pulled up constantly—all for less than $60.

22. Tory Burch Robinson Convertible Shoulder Bag

For the Girl on the Go

This bag, in all its structured, minimalist, multi-use glory, can most definitely keep up. It’s made with scratch-resistant leather and finished with an adjustable chain strap that can be worn as a cross body or a shoulder strap. And it fits all the essentials with separate compartments for a phone, a mask and lipstick.

23. J.Crew Oversized Cashmere Wrap

For the Chronically Cold

A cashmere scarf is basically our favorite winter accessory. This one is oversized and can be worn around your neck or draped over your shoulders. Available in 13 colors, it's incredibly soft and will keep you warm while you do your holiday shopping.

24. Hanacure The All-in-one Facial Starter Kit

Best Face Mask

This mask gained popularity thanks to the way it dries on skin (see what we mean here). Though it feels tight as it dries, it's supposed to wash off to reveal the softest, glowiest skin of your life. The multi-action treatment is formulated with an age-defying CO2 OctoLift technology, which works to deliver a firmer, smoother, more even toned appearance. Just a heads up: this is the kind of gift they’ll want to test out ASAP on Christmas morning.

25. KitchenAid Professional Stand Mixer

For the Baker

This OG stand mixer needs no introduction. But for those of you who need a little extra convincing, here it goes: It features a tilt-head design, which allows easy access to the bowl for adding ingredients and a locking mechanism when in mixing mode; It’s sturdy and built with a durable, all-metal construction to last and last. Plus, you can buy all sorts of different attachments for it.

26. Madewell The Jean Jacket

For the Meghan Markle Fan

When you think of Meghan Markle, denim jackets probably aren’t the first thing to come to mind. But the duchess just so happens to own and love this very one from Madewell. It’s on this list for so many more reasons, though, including the classic hue and the silver hardware that take it up a notch.

27. Ruggable Plush Moroccan Diamond Rug

For the New Homeowner

There are few things that are worse than getting a new white rug and spilling a glass of red wine on it one week later…unless you can throw it in the washing machine and have it come out good as new like you can with this one. How? The innovative Cling Effect technology allows the rug cover to be detached from the rug pad, tossed in the washer and dryer and reattached without losing its grip. Genius!

28. Nintendo Switch

For the Title of “Coolest Aunt”

Remember Game Boys? The Nintendo Switch is kind of like your fave toy from the '90s, but much more high-tech. It’s a handheld gaming system when you want it to be (like when you need the kids to keep quiet in the backseat of the car), but it also includes a dock that connects to the TV for a more conventional home console experience. Plus, the removable Joy-Con controllers allow you to share with a friend for two-player fun. Kids these days have it all, don't they?

29. Charter Club V-neck Cashmere Sweater

For the Comfort Seeker

Last year, PureWow readers must’ve bought nearly everyone on their list a Charter Club’s cashmere sweater. Our biggest tip for shopping these beloved sweaters: Score a few styles on sale for $48 with coupon code SCORE, before they inevitably sell out.

30. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumizer

For the One Who’s Always Late

OK, that friend is us, since we usually leave our hair until the last minute and wind up misjudging how long it will take to style. Thankfully, this Revlon hot air brush shaves at least 30 minutes off our getting ready time. It has the ability to take freshly showered hair from wet to blown-out in under ten minutes—regardless of how thick your mane is. It’s a total game changer (trust us).
