Holiday season is here!  Still at a loss as to what to get your boss, co-worker or secretary?  Since it can often be tricky to find a gift that isn't too thoughtless or cheap, take a cue from this gift guide and get one of these fun, original, and gender-neutral items sure to be a hit with nearly everyone on your list:

1. Have an animal-loving cubemate? Get 'em this multifunctional desk caddy-slash-aquarium that's—get this—USB-powered. It even plays soothing nature sounds, and the tank comes with pretty gravel and a plastic fern. (The only thing missing is the fish.)

2. This colorblocked iPhone case is super adorable—and the cardholder makes it super functional, too.

7. This sleek beverage warmer is essentially a heated coaster, which makes it a great winter gift for your coffee—or tea—obsessed officemate.
