    You could quilt up some wadding and fabric scraps to make some key chain wristlets, super easy and nice hardware is inexpensive

    I know you said you didn't want to make anything, but I made these mousepads for 8 women in my book club. I ordered "bookshelf" fabric from spoonflower but you could use any fabric for coworkers. They didn't take any time at all and were cheap to make too.

    OK, Charyti gets the credit for this one.

    Crafty Gemini has a tutorial for a reversible "quilted" bowl. The one Charyti made me last year is perfect for my Wonderclips. I gave the pattern a try and it's pretty easy. It turned out cute and would be a great way to use up binding strip stragglers. Even for my first one (a bit of trial & error) it was easily under an hour if you machine sew the binding.

    A pretty dish would be nice. Maybe from t j max or marshalls where they have some cute little dishes for candy and such. Thrift stores sometimes have a nice dish that you could add a baked good or candy to that would make a nice gift

    I think a nice generic card with a short handwritten note for the people you work most closely with is classy. Tape a candy cane to it if you have to. If you think back do you have a mental list of who gave you what in past offices? I don't and I bet nobody else will remember either.

    I guess I'm lucky that my department does a secret Santa gift exchange with a price limit that you can opt-out of, no questions asked. I'll probably bring a bottle of craft beer and a card for the three people I work most closely with. Cheap and still fun.
    The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
