Work just wouldn't be the same with your nearest and dearest colleague, your work wife. From dreaded team zoom meetings to those sympathetic vents, she's right by your side through it all.
With Christmas just around the corner, we've put in the hard work for you and compiled our top 10 gift ideas to show just how much you love (and appreciate) her this festive season.
1. Reusable coffee cup
Those midday coffee runs just got a helluva lot cuter with these handmade coffee cups from Kim Wallace Ceramics. Kim's unique handmade reusable takeaway coffee cups are the perfect way to enjoy your coffee, eco friendly and great for the environment.
Bonus: they're available in a range of gorgeous glazes and finishes, including some extra fun carved cactus cups.
2. All of the wines
Send your work wife on a personalised wine adventure, with delicious bottles, matching recipes and stories behind each winemaker with a gift box from Good Pair Days.
Alcohol not her thing? How about some new blends from crowd favourite T2 Tea.
3. Something green
Covid got you both working from home? Freshen things up with a new plant from The Borrowed Nursery's sister business, The Botanica Box.
Their carefully considered gift boxes showcase botanical inspired delights, with a range of quality products by Australian brands, artisans and growers, all curated for their unique botanical qualities.
4. New year, new her
2021 is the start of something new so help your work wife get ready for a new year with a brand new diary! We love these stylish options from An Organised Life, filled with space to goal set, budget, schedule and tick off to-do lists.
For extra brownie points be sure to get the cover monogrammed.
5. Affirmation cards
This artist affirmation card deck from Rust Creative is the perfect beginner deck for those new to affirmations or cards — you also don’t need to call yourself an artist to experience the magic. The perfect pressie for her desk.
6. Something for her summer reading list
You can't go wrong with a new book to add to her summer reading list. Our pick? We loved this non-fiction title, Balance & Other B.S by Felicity Harley.
In her warm and inspiring way, Felicity shows how you can cut through the B.S. to find clarity in the chaos, offload some of your mental load, and feel truly empowered in the middle of your wonderfully messy life. It's kind of a no-brainer for your work wife after the year we've just had!
7. Fresh scents
Inspired by memories and moments, Maison Margiela brings this festive edit of ten unique sensory experiences to test and try, or simply bring on-the-go.
They are the perfect size to keep in a desk draw and pop on before that next meeting.
8. Hydration Set
This trio of Summer Friday's favourites is the perfect gift for any loved one. Ideal for the summer ahead, this set has been designed to keep your complexion glowing and hydrated.
9. Aromatherapy Eye-Pillow
Give the gift of relaxation with this aromatherapy eye-pillow. This beautifully scented pillow releases facial tension and calms the mind. Scented with lavender and chamomile, it will gently engage acupressure points to soften the delicate muscles around the eyes.
Remember to add two to cart, one for her, one for you.
10. Plantable Christmas cards
Tell her how you really feel with a love note inside a plantable Christmas card from Mi Designs. These plantable cards are embedded with seeds to be planted and bloom. We know... cute right?!
