1. The Narcissist
According to the Mayo Clinic, a narcissistic coworker is someone who has “an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. They believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.” What better way to show your appreciation for their contribution to the team than with a plush doll created from one of their many Facebook selfie photos? At budsies.com, you can do just that!

8. The High-Tech Hipster
Some folks feel the need to own every latest tech gadget under the sun. For that person who has it all, introducing The iPlaid. That is, a plaid iPad case:
9. The Perpetually Stressed-Out
Work is hard. For some people, it’s really, really hard. What’s the perfect gift for their office desk? A giant jar of “Chill Pills” which can be filled with their favorite drug-shaped candy:
10. The Boss
Last but not least, the boss deserves an extra special gift this Christmas. We know that being the boss means making some tough executive decisions. This handy Spinning Decision Maker takes the guesswork out of tackling those really difficult choices:
