Fact: The best-kept secret of adulthood is that the majority of your life will be spent with your colleagues. As we adjust to going back to the office, and ultimately spending more time with coworkers, it's important to show our appreciation for the small crew that we love and trust. (I mean, how else would we get through those meetings that should be an email without messaging them about it every 10 seconds?) But how do you select the best gift for your coworkers without overdoing it?

"When selecting a gift for your coworker, it’s important to consider their individual taste and interests," says Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. "If you happen to know what their hobbies are, look for something that speaks to that—like a wooden cutting board for the aspiring at-home chef or a personalized bookmark for the reading enthusiast. For a coworker you don’t know very well, opt for a gift that can help make their work day a little brighter, whether that’s a planter for their desk or a handmade mug for their morning coffee."

The solution: Order your coworkers any one of the below gifts, perfect for their home and beyond. (And if you're wondering what to gift your boss or Secret Santa recipient, we've got a guide for that too.)
