    How about a gift card to a local coffee shop? Those were always a big hit with any of the staff I worked with.

    Like many others, I don't like candles, scented items, potpourri or perfumes.

    I do like nice teas and baked goods (cookies) from local bakery. Nice tea towels, kitchen gadgets for those that like to cook. Those that don't, but like to try different foods, - hot sauces, sweet relishes, pickles or jams. Nice balsamic vinegars, cooking oils. Chocolates - if they like. I can live without.

    Fun socks. A nice desk plant.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    One year I made mini loaves of sweet bread. Spent one afternoon baking and found clear plastic wrap in red and in green. Gave 3 loaves in different flavors to each recipient. They really loved it. One lady told me it helped out for a really fast snack plate that she had to take to a gathering. She sliced up the little loaves and arranged them on a plate.

    Another year I baked strawberry bread in large loaves and gave them out.

    Don't know about your Muslim friend. You might have to google for what would be good and what to not give.

    One year I really goofed. Had company at the last minute for supper so ordered a Huge pizza with ham on it. My cousin (7th Day Adventist) and her husband (who was Catholic) were the guests. Did I mention that it was also on a Friday! Yikes! They were very polite about it and it did not dawn on me what I had done till we were done with supper. I apologized to them but they just laughed it off.

    Lori, really love the mason jars! I think mason jars filled with neat flavors of tea would be great. One friend gave me a mason jar with homemade hot cocoa mix in it. Had a cute little fabric top where she had cut a circle and had a drawstring in it.

    I have made this snack mix recipe before and put in mason jars. Tie a ribbon or raffia around the top of the jar, or cut a piece of fabric to tie over the top.

    Chocolate Chex Mix

    1 box chocolate Chex cereal
    2 bags Muddy Buddies
    1 bag M&Ms in holiday colors
    1 small bag of pretzels (holiday shapes if you can find them. I like to use the white chocolate covered ones)

    Pour all in a large bowl and mix together. I usually take this to work every year and it's always a hit. In fact, the ingredients are in my kitchen right how.

    You could also put this in clear cellophane bags and tie with a pretty ribbon.

    They are made by Chex Mix - some people call them puppy chow. It's chex cereal coated with peanut butter and chocolate then rolled in powdered sugar.

    I tried to upload a picture but I can't. If you google it you will find recipes for your own or places to buy them. I get mine at Target.

    Haven't seen these but I'll have to look for them. Might make for some interesting variations. Mint with mint M&Ms?

    I came across stainless steel drinking straws on Amazon the other day. Some come in multiple packs with silicon tips, a bottle type brush to clean them, and a carrying case for less than $10. I know of two major airports (San Fransciso and Atlanta) that have banned plastic straws, more will surely follow. So a carry along straw would be a great little gift/stocking stuffer. If I had to give a $10 dollar gift to a group of co-workers, these straws would be it.

    Thanks for the great ideas, Everyone!

    I decided to go with gift cards, just because they are quick and easy. I am definitely taking notes so I can do better next year!
