Bathroom humor is always appropriate, right? I’m gonna guess that plenty of guys around the office would enjoy drinking their morning cup of joe from this Poop Emoji Stainless Steel Travel Mug.

What guy doesn’t like dinosaurs? For the guy in your office who couldn’t stop talking about Jurassic World, you should obviously get him the Tyrannosaurus Rex Dinosaur Desk Organizer!

Design company Gama-Go creates some seriously awesome products that dudes are sure to love, like this Gama BBQ Monsters & Yetis Grillin’ Notebook.

Guys who were children of the 80s will appreciate this Pac-Man Stapler, and geeky guys will prosper when they receive the Star Trek Spock USB Flash Drive! (Currently out of stock, but try one of these geeky USB drives instead!)

Fun Gifts for Girl Coworkers

Clockwise from top left:

I know the office at my own day-job has plenty of cat-loving ladies! So it’s no wonder I’ve picked a few cat inspired gifts that are fun for home or office! The Are You Kitten Me Right Meow Mug or the Black Cat Smartphone Stand would both make fun desk companions for cat-crazy gals in your office!

For ladies in the office who love cute animals, but not so much cats, this Otter Tape Dispenser is bound to be a hit! Better yet – help your office buddies relieve the stress of the daily grind with the gift of a fun animal-themed adult coloring book!

Need something perfect for that preppy, always chic co-worker? This customized monogram mouse pad is a perfect fit!

Fun Gifts for Coworkers Under $20*

Clockwise from top left:

These gifts are totally affordable, and perfect for co-workers. Have a hipster co-worker who loves the mustache trend? This mustache tape dispenser is the perfect pick! I bet your favorite music-obsessed coworker would appreciate this 1980s inspired cassette tape desk organizer!

This fun old school camera themed pencil sharpener could be a fun gift that the whole office could enjoy – stick it by the copy machine to add some fun to your workday!

Surely you’ve got a java addicted, coffee drinking fool in your office? This funny “prescription” coffee mug can be personalized with their name! Or maybe share a laugh with this retro humor mousepad.

Ello Syndicate BPA-Free Glass Water Bottle with Flip Lid, 20-Ounce

Here’s another great gift idea for either gender: a BPA-free glass water bottle by Ello. I picked one of these up a few months ago for myself to keep at work, and I LOVE it!

For one thing, water just tastes SO much better out of a glass container, rather than the reusable coffee mug I bring with me to work each morning. I also love the flip lid on this water bottle and the silicone sleeve because I don’t have to worry about water spilling all over my desk.

As someone who uses this water bottle regularly, I have to say, I think it would make a great gift idea for any co-worker!
