10 Professional Yet Fancy Gifts

For some of us, we have some impossibly hard people to shop for.  It may be your boss, for others it may be the friends who have everything, or in my case, we have several professional relationships that we like to acknowledge during the holidays.  For these people, gifts that are a little extra are in order.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Holiday Fruit and Nut Basket

Maybe its cultural but nothing says well wishes in our culture like a basket of nuts and fruits.  It sends a message of abundance and happiness which is why it is first on my list.

Alexa Echo

This device is AMAZING, it can do as much or as it little as you ask of it.  Consider this for anyone in your life.  For $99 Alexa can read off the headlines, play background music, tell you jokes and tell you how to fix just about anything.  Even though someone may already have one at home, perhaps this would make a great gift for someone at the office!

Amazon Gift Card

This one is a no brainer, let someone get whatever they need – no matter what – Amazon has it! OH-and did you know you can buy Nordstrom gift cards on Amazon too?!?! How convenient.

Apple iWatch

With so many new designs and features, this handy dandy smart watch not only looks good now but fully integrates with your iPhone.  I have seen so many people this past year switch from being dependent on their phone to using their iWatch almost exclusively that even I have my eye on this for the holidays.

Massage Pillow

I used this over the summer and then basically stole it form my parents house.  Its truly and ‘hand like’ shiatsu massage that will chill anyone out at the end of the day.  This is the gift that will keep giving – consider this for the hardest working person you know.

Gold Vases

These vases are so beautiful and so cheap! Get the appearance of giving something pricier with this vase and fill it with flowers for a perfect hostess gift or co-worker gift. Of course World Market has so many amazing gift ideas that I would start there in my search anyways.

Champagne Flutes

Aren’t these glasses unique!?  I love them and think that they would add a little spunk to any celebration. Give two with a bottle of champagne or give six alone to make this gift complete.

Waterman Pen

This is kind of an “old school” kind of gift that doctors have always given to each other and although initially it may seem crazy to spend a lot of money on these pens, they really are special.  You will have to try it to believe it, but if you have an older boss or I would even buy this for my Father In Law, then look into a classic gift like this.

Chocolate, Caramel Crunch Basket

I have received this basket in the past and was so grateful that it was something that my whole family could enjoy! These pretzels are fresh and delicious and we were able to use them all up by the end of the holiday season.  Its sizable enough to be impressive and yummy enough to not get wasted.

Gourmet Gift Basket

This basket has dozens of small packages stashed in it.  With a sampling of all kinds of treats, this gift basket is perfect for an office co worker than can keep these small packs at their desk.  It has an impressive size that says THANK YOU like nothing else can.  For chocolate lovers this is a slam dunk.
