A Q&A About Holiday Gift-Giving in the Office

Do I Give to Co-Workers Who Do Work for Me?
You should, especially if they've supported you. Give a small token with a personalized thank you.

Office gift-giving is a fine way to spread cheer during the holiday season, but it can also lead to showboating on the part of lavish spenders; hurt feelings among those who feel left out; and anxiety for professionals who have no idea who deserves what—or how much to spend. If you find yourself facing these challenges, we've connected with a special Santa's helper just for you. Workplace expert Vicky Oliver (www.vickyoliver.com) has authored five books on personal branding, etiquette and career development, including 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions and her latest, The Millionaire's Handbook: How to Look and Act Like a Millionaire Even If You're Not (Skyhorse/available now). In light of the perplexing gift-giving dilemmas of the holiday season, Oliver has come up with the common tough questions on the topic, along with her answers.
